Inside Nike Football’s The Opening Showcase

words, photos & interview by Kevin Kazadi

This past weekend, Nice Kicks had the pleasure of joining Nike for the annual The Opening showcase which features many of the nation’s best recruits. Five star prospects, uncommitted athletes and players on the rise all flocked to Dallas, TX for the championship series of the running event. While there, we were able to catch up with the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Denzel Ward, Roquan Smith and more.

Focused on football, the event also celebrated the 30th anniversary of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign, which is arguably the greatest tagline in advertising history. Willie McGinest interviewed the two rookies on site and had them share insight on what the slogan means to them.

“When you think about ‘Just Do It,’ it’s a simple statement: just do your job,” answered Malik. “So when I think ‘Just Do It,’ I definitely think to just keep in mind the task at hand and make sure I follow and execute my plan.”


Rob Gronkowsi and Todd Gurley

Between the amateur football action, we had a chance to catch up with Todd Gurley an alumni of the showcase and Gronk and talk about Drake and a few of their favorite sneakers.

Nice Kicks: What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Gronk: I just put on the station that plays the top hits, but “God’s Plan” is pretty good. That one’s easy, everytime it pops on I’m like, “Okay!” [Laughs]

Nice Kicks: Todd, I see you’ve got the Skepta Air Max collaboration on, what are your current go to sneakers?

Todd: The Nike Air Max 270s, the Nike Epic React and as far as designer sneakers go the Balenciaga Triple S and Speed Trainer.

Shortly after chatting with Gronk and Todd, Roquan Smith met up with a few of the media spokesmen to teach a few techniques from the NFL Combine.

In closing, The Opening was a great experience. Hanging out with NFL atheletes, customizing our own cleats and watching the best recruits in the country compete is tough to beat. We’d like to thank Nike and Cowboys administration for the hospitality.

Nike Air Challenge Huarache // Throwback Thursday

Astounding Andre.

Bold, brash, and bigger than life, Agassi dominated his opponents in neon-colored sneakers and brights. On this day in 1992, Agassi rose up as a 12th seeded underdog from Las Vegas and defeated the higher-seeded Ivanicevic to claim his first career Single’s Title at the holy grail of tennis, Wimbledon.

In light of this memorable career milestone, today’s Nice Kicks’ Throwback Thursday honors the undisputed king of tennis flamboyancy, the face of Challenge Court and Rock-N-Roll tennis – Andre Agassi – and his 1992 Nike Air Challenge Huarache.

Early in his career, Andre embodied and embraced the role of villain. A rebel with a cause, Agassi signified and stood for everything the tennis establishment was not. Loud, bold, brash, arrogant and proudly unapologetic, Andre was undoubtedly, undisputedly, anti-country club. Furthermore, his bright, avant-garde apparel and kicks were a reflection of his style, flare, and personality.

After experiencing multiple failures early in his career, Andre completely re-dedicated himself to the game. Andre finally realized his full potential and, in the process, captivated the tennis world and ushered the game of tennis into the limelight and regular sport discourse.

Featuring an inner-boot, visible heel with encapsulated forefoot air sole units, and Durathane outsole, the silhouette embodied the very best in Nike sneaker technology, an iconoclastic early 90s tennis sneaker and Huarache model that literally hugged your foot, providing ample protection with a lightweight, comfortable ride for a variety of court surfaces.

Myriad of colorways released which spanned the entire color spectrum including white-black-bright goldenrod, white-lapis-viridian, white/bright spruce-black, and white/true royal-neutral grey. Of note, Andre’s custom PE version featured a modified outsole made for Wimbledon’s grass courts.

Agassi wore a plethora of other models throughout his legendary career; however, the Air Challenge Huarache has great historical and personal significance for Agassi and his long-lasting legacy in the game of tennis.

Be irreverent and make noise on the court like Andre. It’s completely, totally, and understandably justifiable.

Nike KD 11 “EYBL” // Coming Soon

The basketball world is fixated on LeBron and the Lakers, but let’s not forget Kevin Durant is the man with the recent rings. Shifting attention to the current champion while focusing on the next generation looking to take it, the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” is seen in official images.

Designed with the top hoops prospects in mind, the Elite Youth Basketball League theme has long been exclusive to those that are, well, elite and young. With that said, official images of said shoe suggest a retail release could be happening, providing the most pop worthy KD 11 we’ve seen yet.

Sporting shades last seen on the KD V “DC Pre Heat,” this pair certainly has more sauce than its predecessor with crimson and volt popping off the Flyknit upper. A React sole with Zoom Air embedded completes the look with a clear facade.

Drop details are unknown on the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” but get a good look at them below.
