Sure, Shaquille O’Neal’s Reebok line has been revamped, we’ve seen the resurgence of Ewing Athletics, and even New Balance gave us a James Worthy retro, but what do you know about the Etonic “Akeem The Dream”? Packer Shoes brings us another rarity, this time in the seldom-seen signature sneaker belonging to the Rockets Hall of Fame Center. The sneaker is a remnant from the 1980s, right before Hakeem added the extra H in his name due to statewide confusion. The shoe has all the clues of a 80s retro from the premium leather, high top construction, and vibrant accents in Houston’s red and yellow scheme at the time. Hit the click for more images of this Hakeem Olajuwon retro basketball sneaker and let us know if you’re feeling these by penning your thoughts in the comments section.

If you want that LeBron 11 Low SE “Multi-color” pair, be advised that Foot Locker House of Hoops stores are giving out raffle tickets for them right now. They’re not going to be selling them online either, so your best best to track down a pair is to hit up their launch locator to see if any spots near you will be stocking them. Whether or not a release at Nike doors will go down remains to be seen, but it seems likely now that Foot Locker has the green light. See Foot Locker’s info on the release and remember that the Nike LeBron 11 Low SE in question will release on July 28th, and raffle tickets to purchase are up for grabs now.

If that last new Kobe 9 colorway we showed you wasn’t quite bright enough for your tastes, then this pair should do the trick.

Nike KD 7 “Easy Money” – Release Date

The Nike KD 7 has wasted no time getting busy this summer, as we’re expected to have seen four colorways release (along with the infinite amount of creations via NIKEiD) by the time we can get our hands on the Nike KD 7 “Easy Money”. At first glance, it’s hard to pinpoint what exactly this unique colorway is paying homage to, but with the entire KD 7 launch being attributed to the theme of lightning strikes, the broader picture starts to make more sense. Utilizing the colors seen on the US $100 bill, the Easy Money pair nods at Benjamin Franklin, who happened to discover electricity thanks to a lightning strike. Originally set to release on September 6th, the pair has been moved back a few days, so be sure to check out more images after the click and be on the lookout for this KD pair to arrive at retailers on September 10th.

Nike KD 6 Wear-test Sample

A blackout pair of the KD 6 never happened, so this wear-test prototype might actually be the closest you can get to that combo short of a NIKEiD creation. The sneaker shows off what the Nike KD 6 design was looking like in its early stages. You’ll notice that the kit on bottom is mostly the same, while the upper has an interesting bit of exposed Flywire and a triangular pattern running along the back end. It’s possible that those elements were never meant to be incorporated in the shoe anyway – the owner mentions that the sample may have been made just to test out the KD 6 sole. See the rare pair after the break and then bid on this wear-test pair of Kevin Durant shoes from lockerroomkicks on eBay.

The Kobe 9 EM is getting busy once again. Not only did we recently see a new NIKEiD option unveiled for the sneaker, but we also got a first peek at this new colorway. The approach is pretty muted here – they utilize just black and metallic silver, which show up across the upper in some faded shades and vague geometric patterns. They’ll be headed to retail sooner or later, so you shouldn’t have to fret too much about super limited status. Browse photos for this Nike Kobe 9 EM creation below and check back with us for a solid release date.
