nike lebron 11 ext kings crown on feet An On Feet Look at the Nike LeBron 11 EXT Crown Jewel

The Nike LeBron 11 “King’s Crown/Crown Jewel” is the last of known EXT LeBron 11s that we’ve yet to see release. The sneakers just might be here sooner than you think though – a date of July 5th is mentioned in conjunction with this new set of on-feet shots. As far as nicknames go, Crown Jewel is the official one, although that’s just a little bit confusing considering that they don’t really look anything like the Nike LeBron X “Crown Jewel”. Take an on-feet look at these LeBron 11s with us after the break and stay with Sneaker News as release info on them firms up.

The Nike Air Flight ’89 is no stranger to colorways referencing the Air Jordan 4. We’ve seen a Toro look, and models equipped with cement speckling on the midsole, but perhaps the closest, albiet unofficial, nod to Mike’s fourth signature would be this black, grey and red pair. With a color blocking almost identical to the famous retro, the shoe sees a black base, grey tongue and grey speckling on the midsole while a vibrant red hits the lining and outsole. What do you think of the latest Flight ’89 release? Hit the click for a better view and grab your pair today from select retailers like Oneness.

adidas d rose 773 iii three colorways 01 adidas D Rose 773 III in Three Colorways

adidas basketball is currently celebrating Tim Duncan’s fifth title, but that doesn’t mean that they’ve forgotten about Derrick Rose. After two back-to-back missed seasons, plenty of people are wondering what the Chicago guard will be capable of upon his return, but the three stripes are already busy furthering his footwear line. The latest silhouette is this adidas D Rose 773 III, a sneaker that takes inspirations from Rose’s Chicago roots by implementing the area code in the namesake. The sneaker is aimed at performance thanks to plenty of perforations on the upper while the lightweight treatment gets extra support thanks to the high-top construction. The asymmetrical wave on the toe box in reminiscent of another point guard’s signature in the Jordan CP3.VII. With three brand new colorways – one in a USA inspired white and navy, the other in an Orlando Magic-like white-black-and royal, and a third featuring a metallic silver and black, there’s plenty to look forward to. Be sure to check out more images after the click and stay tuned for a release date in the near future.

One of the surprise developments of the past few years in the world of basketball footwear was the return of Ewing Athletics. It came at the perfect time considering people’s hunger for retro models, and now another silhouette will return baring the Knicks’ Hall of Famer’s namesake in the form of the Ewing Wrap retro straight from the archives of 1994. The model is a reminder that the brand wasn’t exclusively about bulky high tops that prominently supported extra cushion for the Center, thanks to the Wrap’s low-cut silhouette that fans are ready to welcome back with open arms. Available in an obvious Knicks themed Home edition that sees a white base accented with royal and orange, and a black pair with grey and teal, you can grab your pair today via select retailers like Wish.
