All summer long, the Drew League in Los Angeles plays host to some of the best offseason basketball in the country, with a collection of amateur hoopers holding their own against NBA stars in a weekly league of games free to attend.

As you’d expect, players are also breaking out an array of sneakers throughout the weekend, as the Nike-sponsored league is known to not only debut new silhouettes, but also feature vintage classics and surprise pairs. We’ll be checking in every week to highlight some of the best kicks on court spotted at the Drew League, starting with a range of current signature models from the Kyrie, KD and PG lines, along with past Nike Basketball favorites like the Kobe 11 and Foamposite Pro. Of course, The Game even broke out a recent hyped release.

Check out the lineup from this past weekend’s slate of games, and let us know your favorite pair by tweeting @NiceKicks and the @DrewLeague. Be sure to check out the upcoming calendar of games to view the action for yourself if you’re in LA this summer.

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.

Supreme Week 18 // Bangers, Sleepers & Duds

Supreme is wrapping up a few collections but not a few banknotes this week. As the F/W season dies down Supreme is finally giving us the polarizing Scarface Embroidered Leather Jacket, that many expected to drop with the rest of the collaboration in Week 8. The jacket is rumored to be extremely limited with quantity predictions in the hundreds. The scarcity of items in this week’s drop means that everything is going to fly off the shelf.  Other than the screams of joy from bombing it down a hypebeast hill with the Supreme Sled, this week is pretty quiet.

Let’s get it…

Bangers

As the final piece from this season’s Arabic Logo collection, the Neoprene Facemask is this week’s most anticipated item. In the windy parts of the world, this multi-cultural protection from the elements will complete any ninja winter fit you have at the ready. We haven’t received a neoprene face mask from Preme since F/W ’14, and since then this piece has been bootlegged like alcohol in the prohibition. Estimated retail to look as badass as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises is a modest $ 32.   

Sleepers

Not much to sleep on this week as the drop is nearly dead without the Cash Paperweight. Resellers will be clamouring to get their hands on whatever they can.  The Embossed Logo Hooded Sweatshirt is a nice subtle piece to round out your winter wardrobe. The branded hood is the only portion of the piece that might make a jealous onlooker feel some type of way, but the clean solid colors make this an easy garment to layer during the cooler months. Go true to size for a snug fit that will allow for shirts and jackets to be worn over the hoodie and size up for a baggie look that will make this your everyday outerwear. Estimated retail is $ 158.

Duds

The Supreme Cash Paperweight is NOT  dropping this week. “Technical Difficulties” have delayed this much-anticipated accessory for yet another week. The question still remains, will this lucite feature a stack of blue notes that will prove that Supreme is the true OG reseller that can sell your money back to you, or will the “paper-weight” have some assembly required? Either way, seeing products like the Scarface Leather Jacket, sled and now the paperweight being delayed is not a good look for a brand trying to justify a Billion dollar evaluation.

How to Cop

Have your Twitter fingers ready before your local Supreme drop time for online acquisition.

If you’re going for an in-store drop you’re probably reading this in line already.

Happy Hunting.

Supreme Week 17 // Bangers, Sleepers & Duds

Week 17! Time flies when you’re flipping and tumbling Supreme. It seems like yesterday that we were all trying to get our hands on the Nas Photo Tee. This week, accessories take center stage in place of the high profile collaborations that we’ve become accustomed to this season as controversial Christmas Tees hit the market in perfect timing, box logo beenies drop to curve your salt from last week, and a slew of unrelated lookbook items find their way into the drop list like Santa’s lost toys. Find out what will keep you lit and what will leave you in brick city below.

Let’s Get It!!

Bangers

The moment the Supreme x Fender Stratocaster hit the Twittersphere Premeheads went mad. The Iconic guitar is constructed the same as any Stratocaster is with a maple neck, three pickups and your standard dials. However, the devil is definitely in the details on this instrument. The Axe comes equipped with a custom white strap with “Supreme” embroidered in silver from end to end, a beautiful custom case that is essentially a giant black box logo with velvet guts, and custom guitar picks that I personally hope are red with white “Sup” text on each side.

The only downside to this guitar is that the gorgeous box logo between the pickups will get destroyed by the pick, depending on how hard you shred. Let’s be honest no one is going to play this Stratocaster much like no one punches the Everlast Heavy Bag as these are legendary moments in Supreme’s history. Still, it would be rad to see (insert famous musician) play this guitar in MSG. This piece will be extremely limited, and due to that, you can expect retail to land well above the price tag of a normal Stratocaster ($ 599) at an estimated $ 1998.

Several heavy duty winter jackets have already dropped this season but none have been as well equipped for everyday use like the 700-Fill Down Taped Seam Parka. The Parka has a waterproof and breathable nylon 3 layer shell with taped seams that will surely keep you dry in any condition. The full zip closure with velcro placket makes this jacket easy to shed at the coat check as opposed to the pullover and half zip iterations that we saw earlier in the season. Finally, from a practicality standpoint, the hood is removable for those cold but sunny days. Ordered from left to right are the most wearable to least wearable colorways of this jacket. The Navajo print (on the right) is still a jacket that you can get away with on most occasions as it combines a near 50/50 combo of tan and brown that pairs well with black pants. This styled practicality comes at a cost… estimated retail for this piece is $ 470.

Sleepers

As we are nearing the end of the season there are not many items that are flying under the radar. One solid piece in the drop list that doesn’t have everyone’s eye is the Gonz Ramm Zip Up Sweatshirt. This piece is mainly without hype because we have seen the Ramm head on everything from polos to skate decks this season, but that’s not a bad thing. Mark Gonzales has been a contributor to the Supreme brand for a decade and his pieces will always be relevant in the skate and streetwear communities. This hoodie comes in a multitude of colorways and will fill the void for whatever color your winter wardrobe needs. It’s worth noting that this piece is cotton cross-grain fleece and not the heavyweight cotton fleece found on the thermal zip-ups, making this sweatshirt easy to wear year-round. Estimated retail for this Ramm patch hoodie is $ 168.

Duds

Supreme has a history of making the uncool cool, but frankly, they strike out just as many times as they get on base. The Vertical Striped Pique Crewneck is one of those strikeouts. The quality on Supreme’s crewnecks are always A1 and the Classic logo is a crowd favorite, but the color blocking on this piece is reminiscent of a dusty sweater sitting at your local Salvation Army. It’s hard to justify paying an estimated $ 128 to be ironically uncool when you can find the same for $ 2 across the highway.

How to Cop

The United States and Europe will drop tomorrow Decemeber 14th

Japan will drop December 16th

Good luck!
