Nike Trainer 1.3 Mid – Amare Stoudemire “STAT KNOWS” PE

The beauty of Training is that it doesn’t really fall under one categorical sport. If anything, Training rises above all categories in hierarchy and prepares individuals for that a-game approach to any sport. For Amare Stoudemire, proper Training allowed him to be one of the best players in the league last year and was a serious MVP candidate, but injuries and roster mix-ups slowed him down a bit this season, but there’s no doubt that STAT will be Standing Tall this upcoming campaign – he’s even employed the services of all-time great Hakeem Olajuwon (Dwight Howard and LeBron James also thrived under his tutelage). We’re certain Amare will come back to his normal form, so let’s hope the channel of STAT PEs continues, like this Nike Trainer 1.3 Mid PE made available by¬†dballaholic on eBay.

After we got a look at Toni Kukoc’s PEs, it appears that the 2006-2007 releases of the Air Jordan V ‘Fire Red’ and ‘Black/Metallic’ were issued by Jordan Brand to its roster of NBA representatives with personalized jersey-number stitching on the heel. Fred Jones, one of Jordan Brand’s ambassadors, wore this Home and Away set while he was hooping for the Toronto Raptors, but there’s actually another set out there with his ’0′ jersey number (when he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers). With the ‘Fire Red’ already confirmed for a 2013 release, will we see the return of more Player Exclusives done in this manner? Check out the gallery of the Fire Red and Metallic Silver joints below and cop ‘em for your own collection from cnoriega_2007 on eBay.

Classics Revisited: Nike Air Max2 (1994)

July 31st, 2012 by | 8 comments

nike air max2 1994 Classics Revisited: Nike Air Max2 (1994)


One of the first lessons we are taught in elementary school science class is that Air, one of the three states of matter, has no true shape. It can only be contained by a fixed compartment, but what can be altered is the amount of pressure inside a system. Nike had already experimented with expanding Air into a larger unit with the Air 180 and Air Classic BW, but in 1994, Nike honed in on the true behavior of air and introduced the four-chambered Air Max2 (or Air Max Squared) unit, which featured two different pressure systems (25 psi and 5 psi) within one Air unit. Nike truly believed that the different levels of pressure optimized cushioning on the heel; the exterior chambers were blasted to 25 psi, offering a more solid, firm cushion, while two interior units were softened down to 5 psi, allowing for a cushier bounce. The Air Max2 unit was also used in several other Nike models – particularly in Running and Basketball – but for tonight’s Classics Revisited, we’ll focus on the flagship running shoe that featured this next wave of Nike technology, the Nike Air Max2.

At the time, the ‘Squared’ Air Max unit was the prized technological footwear advancement – no other brand could measure up to what Nike was doing with their advancements in cushioning. It was the next logical step in the evolution of a fully-explosed Air unit, which would’ve been a major improvement on what many brands saw as the biggest weakness in running shoes – the midsole foam material itself. So not only did Nike enlarge the Air Unit, it decreased the amount of midsole foam (the single-density polyurethane used by Nike was already very lightweight). Additional structural cues to the Air Max2 was the inner sleeve that was first introduced in the Air Huarache series, which minimized the amount of stress on the foot, and a forefoot embedded Tensile Air unit (later named ‘Zoom’). Alongside the Air Max2 was the Air Max2 Light, which was one ounce lighter than the Air Max2; the Light utilized the same heel cushioning, but the midsole was comprised of Phylon and featured a pronounced wedge (a lack of a footbridge, which some hardcore runners didn’t particularly like). As mentioned before, Air Max2 was a big step up in the evolution towards 360 Air, as it served as a precursor to the larger units seen in the Air Max 95 and Tuned Air of ’98.

The ‘Reebok Back’ campaign’s main course of action is to go ‘back’ in time and re-issue some of its late great models, and after receiving a nice preview of what Reebok has planned for 2012-2013, it appears that the sneakerhead community is ready for a Reebok Classics renaissance. One of the models of that 2012-2013 preview was the Reebok Answer IV, which some consider to be one of the best Answer models of the entire Allen Iverson lineage; it appears that the wait won’t be as long as we originally anticipated, as TheDonDrew confirms a release date for the Answer IV for August 10th at Reebok retailers like FinishLine. Will you follow up your Question Mid pick-up by copping the Answer IV? The White/Black colorway is confirmed for a return on 8/10 so check back with us for more updates on Reebok’s retro push.
