Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro “All Star” Drops Next Month

Kobe Bryant’s signature collection remains a fixture in the Nike Basketball lexicon years following his retirement from the NBA. Both Bryant and Nike alluded to this fact even before Bean stepped away from the game; they’ve held true to that promise and then some.

His very-first performance retro, the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro, joins his debut signature sneaker with modern-day tooling and tech. Released earlier this year in both original colorways and an Undefeated collaboration, respectively, the latest pair to land in stores was an ode to the Lakers former home in Minneapolis.

Next in line for the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro is another OG colorway. Sort of.

Taking inspiration from the Zoom Kobe 1 Bryant wore during the 2006 NBA All-Star Game, a white, red and black upper fills the leather composed retro. Bryant’s original pair, of course, featured royal blue in lieu of black, in line with the Western Conference uniforms that year.

It’s reported that the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro “All-Star” will release this August. Nike has not yet confirmed those details. Until they do, grab a closer look below.

Update 7/26: Official images of the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro “All-Star” have been revealed. The shoe is reported to release on August 1.

Chance The Rapper’s Next Philanthropy Mission Is About Making Sure Everyone Gets A ‘Chance At Greatness’

Chance the Rapper might not be releasing an album this week, contrary to previous reports. The confusion was warranted considering that his interview with the Chicago Tribune teased that a new project was arriving “in time for the Special Olympics” — the 50th Anniversary concert of which he is producing and headlining on Saturday (July 21).

However, the update isn’t all bad news. During the discussion, the “Forever Always” rapper did describe in a very inspirational manner why his commitment to supporting the Special Olympics is important.

“I haven’t done as much work as possible with the intellectual and physical disabilities community,” Chance detailed. “But overall we’ve been about access, just trying to make sure everyone is given their chance at greatness. And greatness isn’t something segregated. When I looked into the history of the Special Olympics, that it started here 50 years ago and how many [Special Olympics] athletes we have in Chicago — 7,000 — I felt we should be a part of it.”

During the interview, Chance also opened up about the challenges of collaborating with artists in the major label system when you’re independent.

“Music has value,” he continued. “I put my music out there for free because I wanted people to see and notice it as a beacon for what I’m doing, in terms of how unorthodox I wanted my approach and my delivery of each piece of music to be… The bigger concern for artists now is navigating the legal issues of owning your music, your publishing, your distribution. It has been difficult for me to release music with artists who work with the majors. A lot of stuff I’ve worked on hasn’t come out since Coloring Book because it’s hard.”

Hopefully the labels back off of Chance because we need that Kanye West-produced seven-song album.

Air Jordan XXX2 Low “Last Shot” Takes Flight Next Week

Later this month, Jordan Brand will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” with a retro release on June 14. As a companion piece, they’ll also launch a “Last Shot” edition of the Air Jordan XXX2 Low.

Themed after the shoe Michael Jordan wore during his Game 6 winner during the 1998 NBA Finals over an under equipped Byron Russell, largely produced in black with red accents, the date of the game is placed behind the shoes tongue to honor the Chicago Bulls sixth championship ring.

Fans of the Air Jordan XXX2 Low “Last Shot” can expect pairs in select stores on June 9.

Nike Air Max 1 “Curry” Pack Lands Next Week

The much anticipated retro release of the Nike Air Max 1 “Curry” isn’t a singular one. Nike’s famed general release from 2003 will be accompanied by two additional Air Max models. Both of which will also carry the “Curry” theme forward.

Taking inspiration from red and green curry variations, the three-piece collection is set to hit retailers on May 10. Each pair is priced at $ 150 and they’ll certainly be harder to secure than the original “Currys” 15 years ago. Grab a closer look at the Nike Air Max 1 “Curry” Pack below and let us know if you plan to cop.

Adidas Wants to Sign Colin Kaepernick if He Plays in the NFL Next Season

Colin Kaepernick‘s road back to the NFL has been one paved with roadblocks. Following the kneel that shook the league and the public consciousness at its foundation, Kaepernick has with great certainty been blocked from returning to the National Football League. Despite his formidable talent, past successes, and lesser quarterback signings since he took his stand against racial injustice and police brutality at the hands of blacks in 2016, the former San Francisco 49ers QB has been without work in the league he dominated not that long ago.

But where there’s a will there’s a way, and if that will is for Colin to return to the NFL next season, adidas would be first in line to sign him.

“If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him,” said Mark King, adidas North America President/CEO, at Arizona State University’s Global Sport Summit per a report from AZ Central.

King went on to say that he doesn’t want to come off as “taking advantage of this noise or interest that he had generated.” He does however believe in athletes sparking change and leading their own revolutions. “If they’re an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there’s controversy at that moment, we’re really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today.”

Kaepernick, though, in spite of this endorsement offer, remains far from signing with an NFL team. Since 2016, offers and interest have been all but absent. That is until just recently, when the Seattle Seahawks wanted to bring Kaepernick in for an interview and subsequent workout. Unfortunately, the meeting was postponed indefinitely when Colin couldn’t commit to discontinuing his pregame protest.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem in 2016. Since that time, many other players – both black and otherwise – have followed his lead.

Is Cardi B’s ‘Bickenhead’ Her Next ‘Bodak Yellow’? And More Moments From Invasion Of Privacy

Bodak Bar: “I took pictures with Beyoncé, I met Mama Knowles / I’m the rose that came from the concrete in the Rolls”

“Best Life,” featuring Chance The Rapper, is Invasion of Privacy‘s first great album cut. It isn’t as club-ready as “Bickenhead,” as worldly as “I Like It,” or vulnerable like “Thru Your Phone,” but it doesn’t need to be.

The genius of “Best Life” is the way it positions Cardi next to Chance. The Chicago artist doesn’t outrap Cardi like he tends to do and he might not have been able to considering how hard the former Love & Hip Hop actress spits throughout the album. Instead of lyrical competition, the low-key song allows for both rappers to get inspirational while collectively geeking out about how they met Beyoncé.

Nike LeBron 15 “New Heights” Drops Next Week

Interesting enough, if you’ve kept a close eye on LeBron James throughout much of the Cavs current 9 game winning streak, his choice of footwear isn’t what you’d think it would be. In lieu of wearing his newly released Nike LeBron 15, the King has preferred to lace up the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 – his postseason shoe from last season.

Aside from that noteworthy development, many others continue to deem the LeBron 15 as a great fit both on and off the court. Next week, one of its most adoring colorways will land in stores. Dubbed the “New Heights” edition, this Cavs centric pair employs multicolored Flyknit led by Dark Atomic Teal complimented by secondary Team Red accents.

Expect the Nike LeBron 15 “New Heights” on December 7 at select Swoosh retailers everywhere.
