These high-top Kobe 9s should be a key grab once they hit select Nike retailers on Thursday, so get an official look below and see what’s available now on eBay.

For the past few years, Reebok has made it an annual tradition to celebrate the important anniversaries of their classic models by doing large collaboration collections with members of their Certified Network partners. In 2014, we were treated to a dizzying variety of Instapump Fury releases, and now we’re seeing the 25th anniversary of the original The Pump silhouette honored in similar fashion. But before these large-scale capsules were the norm, Reebok was plenty busy teaming up on interesting co-branded projects with shops from all around the world. In this week’s Nine@Nine, we’ll take a look back at some great Reebok collabs from the last decade that deserve some recognition for their contributions to the Pump legacy.

5 ways signature athletes sell shoes 1 Five Ways Signature Athletes Sell Shoes

Being a signature athlete for a sneaker brand is a true “we made it” accomplishment in the world of pro basketball. Only a tiny percentage of active players can boast their own names on shoes, and only a fraction of those can say their kicks are massively profitable cash cows for the brands that have invested in them. Most, if not all, of these successful pitchmen have come from the Nike and Jordan camp, with some highlights coming from other brands, so we explore what the “it” factors are in rendering these guys so prosperous.

There aren’t many pro-athletes in history that treasure “home” as much as Kevin Durant does, but the truth is that he spends his season away from it as much as he does in it. This latest KD 7 storyline takes us through Kevin Durant’s mindset as he travels away from OKC, bonding with his teammates and always in search for a quick workout or shoot-around at a local gym. The underlying theme here is that despite being on the road, KD will always feel at home at the hardwood.

U.N.K.L.E. x MoWax x Nike Blazer Hi Sample

Perhaps one of the best Nike SB collaborations during the heyday of the category was the high-top Dunks that featured Futura’s legendary art for U.N.K.L.E. and the Mo’Wax label. It’s been a decade since we were officially graced with those high-tops Dunks, and while no follow-up of any kind has been confirmed (don’t count anything out – Nike SB has been putting out “retro” releases), we are getting a look at this Nike Blazer Hi sample that features the graffiti artist’s signature works adorning the upper. These unearthed samples don’t have a disclosed time-stamp, so it is very likely that these unreleased gems are years old, but it’s still an awesome sight for this to surface so far removed from the original release of the UNKLE Dunks. Check out the photos below and let us know what you think of these.
