Asics Gel Spotlyte “Olympic” – Available

asics gel spotlyte olympic 01 Asics Gel Spotlyte Olympic   Available

Isiah Thomas may never have been able to don the Team USA jersey in the Olympics (you can blame his unwillingness to go over and shake Michael Jordan’s hand after the Bulls superstar finally trounced the Pistons in 1991 for his name being scratched off of the roster) but that hasn’t stopped his Asics Gel Spotlyte from donning a rather Dream Team-centric colorway. The Gel Spotlyte made a comeback earlier this year around the same time that ESPN 30 for 30 on the Bad Boy-era Pistons aired, so Isiah has been in the collective conscious all throughout 2014. The pair features some gold throughout to nod at America’s 1992 win and is available today from Extra Butter for $120.

Next up for the Kobe 9 will be this “Dusty Cactus” colorway that’s slated to release on October 3rd, 2014. It’s not clear if there’s a real theme behind them, but they do have a patch on the tongue in place of the typical shozoku logo. That patch mentions the Black Mamba and even have a little five-star treatment in what appears to be a soccer style reference to the number of titles that Kobe has.

Fresh off of the surprising announcement that Jordan Brand will be releasing the commemorative Air Jordan 1 “Jeter” this Saturday, September 20th, what other Yankee-themed basketball sneakers can you think of? How about this Nike LeBron 7 “Yankees” PE from his last season as a Cavalier in 2010. Amid speculation of where LeBron would be signing in his first go at being a free agent, many people looked over the Miami Heat and thought that a signing with the Knicks was imminent. This pair didn’t help ease Cavs fanatics’ woes either, as the pre-champion King actually wore these against the Orlando Magic and not during one of his dominant performances at MSG. Check out more photos after the click and pick up this rare find today via instyleshoes on eBay.

Was the Jordan CP3.VII Chris Paul’s best signature sneaker to date? While the jury is still out, the pair came correct with a seemingly unlimited amount of colorways thanks to its inclusion on NIKEiD. One of the more unexpected moves was outfitting the sneaker with an argyle feature in a nod to Paul’s Cliff character in the ongoing State Farm advertisements. The two brands actually linked up for an entire promotional pack that they doled out late last season to the first responders on social media featuring matching socks, commemorative Cliff Paul bobble head, and a carrying bag with the slogan #WorntoAssist printed on it. Continue onward for more images of this 1 out of 50 promotional pack and start your bidding by heading to the auction held by noblexperiment2011 on eBay.
