Comfort is king, right? Well, at least for me it is. House slippers have been one of the most comfortable footwear options for years now. Mahabis has decided to step up to the plate & attempt to perfect the modern-day house slipper. The majority of the slipper is made from a breathable and high-comfort felt, with the lining being a light and breathable sheepskin designed to keep your feet warm, but not overheat them. Possibly the coolest thing about Mahabis’ take on the slipper is the ability to swap out different colored detachable soles. Not only does that allow you to get some customizing on, but if you want to take your comfort to the outdoors, these soles let you do that.
This Saturday, Nike Basketball will be releasing the newest Kevin Durant signature model.

Today, adidas announced that they have a partnership with the overall number 1 draft pick, Andrew Wiggins. With Wiggins being no stranger to adidas gear thanks to his time spent at KU, it’s not too surprising that he went with the “three stripes” over the guys behind “the swoosh.” Sources say the multi-year deal comes with at least $2 million guaranteed annually, and the overall contract in the $10-12 million range. Hopefully we get to see a Wiggins signature model in the near future.
Nailed that last pad like a boss.
