nike kobe 8 system collectibles mastery icon 02 Nike Kobe 8 System Collectibles – “4 Mastery Icon” Toy Figures

The Nike Kobe 8 is so much more than a shoe. It’s a system, didn’t you know? While these little trinkets that just popped aren’t vital parts of said system we’re gonna throw them in the same category. Pictured are four ‘Mastery Icon’ collectibles, with each one representing a different element from Mr. Bryant’s system. The toys aren’t for purchase but are up for grabs exclusively through House of Hoops by Foot Locker. Check out the figures after the jump and then check out their dedicated Nike Kobe 8 minisite for full info on how to get your hands on the set.

All of yesterday’s Olympic excitement was capped off by a nice recap of a Dream Team Showcase at a Nike Basketball location in South Korea. If you managed to flip through the gallery of images, you would’ve spotted some interesting figurines modeled after Nike Basketball’s Big Three – Kobe, LeBron, and KD. Turns out it was a Nike-commissioned project, in which they tapped the skills of South Korean toy-maker Coolrainz (they’ve worked together before); a total of six models were made (two of each player), with one in complete Team USA and sig shoe gear and another all-black version with white facial hair and Nike Sportswear apparel. A detailed gallery of the figurines are just below, so take a look and let us know what you think!

air jordan vii olympic necklace Air Jordan & Air Max 1 Necklaces

Behold the perfect holiday stocking stuffer for the sneaker head. These little miniaturized sneaker models have been quite popular as key-chains for quite some time, but attached a longer chain and you’ve got yourself a nice necklace to accessorize with your sneakers. These aren’t exactly ‘blingin’ out’, but who wouldn’t want a pair of Olympic VIIs for their Olympic VIIs? What makes these cute little sneaker models even better is the tiny cardboard box that they come housed in, so you can stash ‘em away until the next use. Check out the Air Jordan 1 as well as the two Air Max 1s after the jump and let us know which of the four you like best. via shoes-up.

Plenty of sneakerheads cite the feeling of being a kid again for the reason behind their collecting. You know, chasing down that one pair that mom wouldn’t let you buy or that you missed out on on release date. You know what else can make you feel like a kid again? Action figures. And if they revolve around the world of sneakers that’s two birds with one stone right? Recently we saw the RUN DMC x adidas Originals Superstar 80′s accompanied by vinyl figurines of Run and DMC, and of course there was the Nike Mag 2011 ceramic replica that served as a consolation prize to those who couldn’t get the real thing. The latest in toys for sneaker enthusiasts is this Spike Lee ‘Mars Blackmon’ action figure, with Spike represented as his character in the classic ad series that helped galvanize the Air Jordan craze.

stance high vinyl toy sneaker 05 Stance Vinyl Toy Sneaker

Vinyl figurines have been a highly sought-after collectible for years, taking shape of some memorable characters from the A Bathing Ape and Kid Robot camp, to more widely recognizable ones like Homer Simpson and Stewie Griffin. Stance is a standalone vinyl toy sneaker, but you’ll notice that it’s a completely blank canvas, allowing the owner to design his own vinyl toy after an iconic sneaker like the Dunk High or Air Jordan 1, which would be perfect for the Stance High. These are just $25 a pop and can be purchased at StanceCollection, so check out the extra shots below and let us know if this is the next big toy fad, because they’re already set for appearance at a number of notable trade-shows like San Diego Comic-Con and H-Town Sneaker Summit!

Inside Nike Inc. CEO Mark Parker’s Office

markparkeroffice36 Inside Nike Inc. CEO Mark Parkers Office

Sneaker News showed you the inside of Jordan Geller’s ShoeZeum over the past several weeks, a southern California collection that’s quite possibly the best in the entire world.  Or maybe second best is more likely, because up the coast in Oregon, the Nike Inc headquarters has its fair share of history on display.  Not only does the Beaverton campus contain countless vintage and unreleased items, but company CEO Mark Parker‘s office could easily be its own show-and-tell.  Photographer Steve Benisty got a chance to look around and snap a few shots, and if a picture’s worth a thousand words, you’d better save some time to digest this thesis on design.  Parker’s got everything from sneaker-themed art to larger than life photographs of Keith Richards and Jimi Hendrix, and with a tiny Kim Jong-il teapot for good measure.  You can see it all when you click on the jump below, and be sure to leave a comment to let us know what you think of Nike Inc. CEO Mark Parker’s amazing office space.  via Fubiz
