The Best Kicks On Court From Game 3 Of The NBA Finals

words // Nick DePaula:

For the third consecutive game of this year’s NBA Finals, the outcome wasn’t close. This time, it was the Cleveland Cavaliers’ night to enjoy a rout on their home court, as they destroyed the Golden State Warriors from start to finish on the way to a 30-point win.

While Kyrie Irving and JR Smith both had strong games, it was LeBron James who set the tone from the tip. Along with the dominant win, Game 3 also will also be one to remember because James debuted his upcoming Nike Soldier 10 for the first time.

It’s a completely laceless sneaker, utilizing three protective straps to harness LeBron’s force and explosiveness.

As Stephen Curry struggled to find his shot, we saw him switch from the Curry 2.5 to the Curry 2 at halftime. Both Draymond Green and Richard Jefferson continued their run of wearing strong Nike HyperRev 2016 PEs, and several players on both sides also donned gold hued shoes.

Check out several angles of LeBron’s newest team shoe ahead, along with all of the best Kicks On Court spotted last night in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

words // Nick DePaula:

As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue to roll through the NBA Playoffs — they’re undefeated so far in nine straight games — we’re seeing two of Nike’s top marquee athletes continue their dominant play in bold editions of their signature kicks.

Both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving broke out a gleaming yellow colorway of their respective LeBron 13 Elite and Kyrie 2 models last night at The Q, with James’ pair being yet another new debut.

We also saw DeMar DeRozan continue his season-long tribute to Kobe’s Nike series, along with some clean player exclusives from both Kyle Lowry and Richard Jefferson.

A Look At Boston Celtic Kelly Olynyk’s Custom Kicks By ReconNW

words // Nick DePaula:

Early on in his three year NBA career, versatile Boston Celtics big Kelly Olynyk has been spotted in several custom sneakers, each featuring their own themed detailing and created by Portland-based custom shop ReconNW.

According to Alex Hartman, project specialist at ReconNW, Olynyk will often come up with specific concepts for his shoes, with different insights or nicknames helping to influence the ReconNW customization team. At the 2014 Rising Stars rookie game, he showcased his love for Big Buck Hunter on a pair of KD 6s. Later on that year, Olynyk played off of his flowing locks and had an entire set of low-tops created with a “Long Hair Don’t Care” theme.

Earlier this week, Olynyk celebrated “Mamba Day” with a custom Kobe 11, featuring a gradient fading Swoosh and speckle detailing. “The green fade represents the growth of the team with new energy, hence the green to volt-ish fade,” Hartman explains. “He wanted to energize Celtics fans.”

Check out all of Olynyk’s recent custom sneakers from Recon NW, along with a teaser of an Air Jordan XI that he just might break out during the NBA Playoffs.
