Foot Locker ‘Kicksmas’ – Black Friday ‘Black Pack’

November 22nd, 2011 by | 16 comments

foot locker kicksmas black friday black pack 1 Foot Locker Kicksmas   Black Friday Black Pack

It is with good reason that the period between mid-November and the end of each calendar year is commonly called the ‘holiday season’.  So many of the world’s local cultures have contributed to a melange of occasions suitable for celebrating, and the one that starts off the annual spike in retail sales starts later this week in the United States.  But even if coming together during the winter results in increased sales, getting the major sneaker brands to cooperate is a task on the order of creating world peace.  So Foot Locker‘s ‘Black Pack’ for Black Friday not only launches the store’s Kicksmas celebration in earnest, but it also manages the ambitious coordination of releases from adidas Basketball, Jordan Brand, Nike Basketball and Nike Sportswear.  Dark colorways of the adidas adiZero Power Howard and adiZero Rose 2.0 join the Air Jordan III Retro ‘Black Cement’, Jordan 1 Flight in the same colorway, triple-black Nike LeBron 9s, Zoom Hyperdunk and Hyperfuse 2011s, the Total Air Foamposite Max also in black/anthracite, and John Wall’s Reebok Zig Encore.  Last but not least is the ‘Binary Blue’ Zoom Rookie LWP, a model presumably included because it’s the darkest colorway on a model that has no ‘blackout’ edition (yet?).  It’s a mouthful and enough to drain your wallet, and even if FL’s best wishes come true, it’s unlikely anyone will seek to complete this ‘pack’; so which ones are the must-haves?

adidas adiZero Rose 2 ‘Wolverine’

November 17th, 2011 by | 6 comments

Chicago’s Neal F. Simeon Vocational High School was renamed the Simeon Career Academy, and at least one of its alumni proves that the motto ‘Home of Tomorrow’s Leaders’ is something they take seriously.  Three-time state champions in basketball in under 60 years of enrollment, the Simeon Wolverines captured their most recent Illinois crown in 2007 when senior guard Derrick Rose played so phenomenally so as to have his jersey retired as the first one since the school’s gym opened some 25 years ago.  And it was that kind of inspired play that made D.Rose’s trip to the NBA via Memphis such a steady upward climb, so only natural that we’d see Simeon shouted out in a new adidas adiZero Rose 2 colorway.  The adiZero Rose 2 ‘Wolverine’ goes for a looser interpretation of the team’s Michigan-like palette than the pair of their prequels Derrick wore in the most recent NBA All-Star game; will energetic designs like this one help Three Stripes keep pace with Nike Basketball’s ever impressive output?  Look over the adiRose 2 ‘Wolverine’ in greater detail after the jump and look for these at Foot Locker starting December 1st.

The proponderance of affordable digital cameras in recent years has resulted in a sharp increase in the amount of sneaker review videos floating around on the internet. You’d expect to see an enthusiastic young collector when you check out these vids, so seeing the guy whose signature rests on the shoe itself is quite the rarity. And that’s where the latest Derrick Rose x adidas Basketball video comes in, a relatively candid look at D-Rose in a home theater where he’s getting down with his boys on some NBA2K11 and taking a quick timeout to discuss the new adidas adiZero Rose 2.

Last summer’s most memorable basketball related event took place at a Connecticut Boys & Girls Club.  Fifteen months after LeBron James decided that Jason Petrie could do some amazing things with Miami-inspired colorways, there’s not a followup NBA season anywhere in sight, so this recent adidas Basketball event in Chicago could very well turn out to be the attendees’ most memorable roundball moment in 2011-12.  ’Run with D Rose’ featured Chitown emcee Common on the mic and Derrick Rose in a little 3-on-3 action with some lucky Facebook fans at the James R Jordan B&GC following the adiZero Rose 2 launch at Foot Locker on Michigan Ave.  Check out the video and stick with Sneaker News for event recaps from around the world.
