This past weekend, KC Sole held their 2nd sneaker show called KC Sneakfest. I was a little disappointed I missed out on last year’s event, but luckily got to go experience it this year. Walking into the Kansas City Municipal Building, I didn’t really know what to expect, and was amazed from the moment I walked in. Loud music, a concession stand that included tall boy cans of beer, and best of all…. SHOES.
adidas recently released their new “Made in March” jerseys. We will probably first see these uniforms worn at the Regional Tournaments, and then of course in the March Madness Tournament. To everyone’s delight, they left out the camo this year and went with a more modest approach.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is considered by many to be one of the best basketball players of all-time. His greatness on and off the court represents “the blueprint” to success. Today, adidas unveiled “The Blueprint” Crazy 8, a limited edition version of the classic Crazy 8 shoe that pays homage to Kareem.
The NBA and adidas just unveiled these “Big Logo” uniforms which will be worn on Christmas day. As you can see, the front of the short sleeve jerseys features a really big logo made from reflective chrome material. NBA teams will also be rocking matching warm-up jackets and shooting shirts as well. Take a look at the entire collection below and check out the corresponding commercial as well.
Here we have the latest colorway of the D Rose 4. Dubbed “Chicago Nightfall,” the colorway pays tribute to Derrick’s hometown of Chicago and the unique look of the city at night. The purple tones represent the night sky and Lake Michigan while the bright yellow accents and collar lining represent the lights of the city and how they reflect on the sky and lake. The purple front half of the shoe features a metallic finish while the back half of the shoe features a GEOFIT collar and SPRINTFRAME in blast purple with additional accents in bright yellow.
