The adidas adiZero Crazy Light series will continue on with the third installment later on this year. We’ve seen the Crazy Light 3 here on Kicks On Court before along with their More »
There is good news and there is great news regarding the Jordan Brand CP3 line.
The good news; everything that worked on the last model (Jordan CP3.VI & CP3.VI AE) is back on the new model. The great news; they have more tech than ever before. Dynamic Flywire is featured on the CP3.VII and we have only seen Flywire used once on the CP3.V. Podulon has been retooled and is now lighter and more responsive… along with that they’ve given it a new name – Podulite. In addition to the Podulite, there is also a Zoom Air unit directly under the ball of the foot (strike zone) much like the Zoom units found in the
Kobe V & VI.
If you aren’t drooling right now then you’re probably sleeping.
Everyone wanted to see what the Air Jordan XX8 would look like with the shroud removed and now you have four examples featuring the new look which has been dubbed the Air Jordan XX8 SE (Special Edition).
These should boast the same performance overall but with one major difference, these will breath better than the original XX8′s. The same awesome traction, Cushion, Flight Plate and Dynamic Fit system are still in place and that should make most hoopers huge fans and it looks like the colorways will be great as well.
Take a look after the jump and let me know if you’ll be going after a pair so you can experience what all the commotion is about.
For those of you who wish to – or maybe already have – start a YouTube Channel reviewing sneakers, here are some really great tips from fellow YouTuber, TBlake.
He gives off 5 tips that I personally think are helpful when you are on the outside looking in. I received emails on a daily basis from those who wish to start a Channel and the first thing they say is that they want to start a Channel and get free shoes… that is the wrong way to go about it.
I will give you one additional piece of advice after the jump – from my perspective – and you can also view the video after the jump as well. As usual, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions down below in the comment section.
With the success of 90′s classics at an all time high, Nike shows no signs of slowing down with the Retro releases.
We’ve had the Nike Air Way Up retro this year and in 2014 the model that came before them will resurface at retailers once more. These were worn throughout the NBA back in their heyday but it was Scottie Pippen and most notably Penny Hardaway that made them must haves.
Let me know what you think of the classic Nike Air Up returning in Retro form after the jump in the comment section.
What was once though to be a RosheRun rendition of a hoop shoe is actually just a hoop shoe that happens to look similar to the RosheRun design.
The Nike Zoom Hyperrev looks intriguing and has performance tech as they feature an open mesh upper, proprioceptive strap, Dynamic Flywire & full length Zoom Air. One issue I see with them is the Phylite midsole & outsole construction. It all looks to be one piece and even thought herringbone is in place, a Phylite outsole will not allow you to grip the floor properly… been through that with the Huarache Free Bball 2012 and that wasn’t the best experience.
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below and expect these to release in early 2014.
I’m all for graphics and things of that nature when it comes to new models – since that is how they are introduced to the public – but throwing graphics on classic models… that’s a no go for me.
As much as I love the Nike Zoom Flight 98, I can’t get down with childish graphic patterns on the shroud and I feel the same way with the Foamposite One, Flightposite unzipped and the Hyperflight. New colorways are great, just leave the graphics off of the Men’s versions. However, if you like graphics then maybe this new style on a classic silhouette is for you. If not, then there are definitely going to be some great new colorways without graphics applied such as the Black/ Court Purple – Volt version.
Hit the jump to view them both in their entirety and let me know if you’ll be anticipating any possible new colorways or if you’re strictly sticking with the two OG colors.
Under Armour has been hinting towards the upcoming release of the Spawn Anatomix and they’ve re-designed one of the most important parts of the sneaker… the traction.
As you’ve seen from the previous looks we’ve had on Kicks On Court, the traction featured herringbone is segmented sections and strike zones. This setup may have worked but each strike zone was fairly small so it would have been unlikely if you play on less than desirable court conditions. Since then, Under Armour has implemented an aggressive full length herringbone pattern across the entire outsole… awesome!
This – for me anyway – is one pair that I cannot wait to play in. They may be one of the best performance models of the year with all things considered (price included). Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
The Nike Barkley Posite Max is the next model to get deconstructed from the folks over at Long-7.
While they dismantle the expensive lifestyle model, you can see the inner workings and the most notable is the forefoots dual-density foam setup. I went over this briefly in my video review and I’m happy to see that my initial thoughts were correct.
Nike continues to release more Foamposite colorways, whether you like them or not.
The upcoming ‘Sport Royal’ Foamposite One is actually one of the nicer looking colorways that will have been released within the past few months and if you wanted to secure your pair then you can place a pre-order now at Sneaker Crew.
I personally don’t think these will sell out but that’s also what I thought about the all Whites, Fighter Jets, Green Camo’s… so, what do I know.
