sn 9 at 9 easter Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Easter Edition

Earlier this year, Sneaker News examined the history of Nike Chinese New Year sneakers, noting that the first ‘Year of the . . . ‘ drop came with the first Horse Air Force 1s in 2002. This was the start of a movement we’ve seen thoroughly fleshed out in recent years, whereby annual holidays serve as inspiration for limited edition sneakers. It took a little while to get the ball rolling on these annual traditions, and about three years after the first YOTH drops, Nike turned to another holiday that’s rich in colorful inspiration.

Nike released its first Easter-inspired colorway in 2005, and in the years since, we’ve seen both an increase in activity from both the Swoosh and their rivals. And with another set of Nike Basketball signatures dropping on Good Friday, the time is right to go back and look over some of the highlights of the past decade. So join us, as we hunt down some of history’s best Easter kicks in tonight’s edition of Sneaker News NINE@NINE:

How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

April 10th, 2014 by | 21 comments

nike basketball elite 2014 collection How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

You don’t need to go much farther than Nike to get a straightforward example of what the essence of evolution is. Year after year, the designers at the Swoosh label continue to bring forward some of the most advanced basketball footwear designs, and the moment its primary brand competitors even begin to catch on what’s unfolding before the eyes of the consumers, Nike disrupts us (pleasantly) with something completely next-level. In 2012, Nike Basketball introduced the Elite Collection of footwear; in a landscape already dominated by the Beaverton brand, the debut of Elite sent the message that only from within could a better basketball sneaker be produced. With that said, the 2014 Elite Collection is a no-holds-barred design and innovation smorgasbord that will allow LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant to live out their sneaker fantasies. To put it briefly – LeBron, KD, and Kobe asked for it and Nike delivered, and in two days we’ll get to experience the fun for ourselves.
