Sneaker News NINE@NINE: NBA Finals MVP Sneakers

June 18th, 2014 by | 4 comments

sn 9 at 9 nba finals mvp sneakers 1 Sneaker News NINE@NINE: NBA Finals MVP Sneakers

The poor Spurs. We’re not too sure that they mind having their championship celebration immediately overshadowed by talk of where LeBron will end up by next season’s start, but for the past 2 decades, San Antonio has handled business as usual regardless of whether they win a championship or not. Kawhi Leonard’s Air Jordan XX8 SE PEs had a similar thought process throughout the NBA Finals, but previous Finals PEs took a different approach (just as long as they were produced by the Swoosh, that is). Today’s NINE@NINE takes a look back at the past decade of NBA Finals MVPs to get a close look at what exactly they were wearing, and the silhouettes featured are as diverse as the past champions themselves. From Dwyane Wade hoisting his first championship trophy in a Converse shoe, to a Paul Pierce signature sneaker that never even saw a retail release, the list serves as a reminder of the transformation of the Finals as a time for brands to showcase their design skills through special edition colorways. Stick with us to check out what the last nine NBA Finals MVPs wore en route to the Bill Russell trophy in our latest Sneaker News NINE@NINE feature, and let us know which pair is your favorite in the comments.

nike kobe 9 em game royal release reminder 01 Nike Kobe 9 EM Brazil   Release Reminder

The Nike Kobe 9 EM “Brazil” will arrive at retailers tomorrow, June 19th, 2014. There’s been no shortage of silhouettes rocking colorways inspired by the current Brazil World Cup, and Nike decided that it would be fitting to have the latest Nike Kobe 9 EM sport a brand new colorway influenced by the event. After all, Kobe grew up playing soccer before he followed in his father’s footsteps on the basketball court. The engineered mesh upper sports a pattern full of game royal and venom greens with numerous patterns blocked out ranging from a polka-dot to a yellow and green stripe print on the toebox. Add in a venom green speckled midsole and this release definitely fits the mold of Brazil inspired summer footwear. Stick around after the click for more images of the latest Nike Kobe release and see if you can reserve your size early on eBay.

For kids that didn’t grow up in the 90s, it’s surely a crazy realization when they find that recent five-time champion Tim Duncan was putting up MVP-numbers in a Nike Foamposite while a young Kobe Bryant was playing second-fiddle to Shaquille O’Neal as he was wearing adidas signatures. How times have changed. The three stripes are still banking on one of Kobe’s more popular silhouettes under the adidas Crazy 8 name, and the latest sample is true to its title thanks to an eye-catching camouflage print. With an array of khaki, brown and forrest greens, the branding stands out in a hunting orange.

Kobe Bryant has focused his attention away from the Finals to Rio and the World Cup, immersing himself in a sport he loved playing growing up and as an adult.

The low-top Elite version of the Kobe 9 has been one of the most buzzing sneakers of 2014, and with such a limited collection of colorways releasing in stores, the shoes will certainly be a tough find.
