amare stoudemire nike air force 1 bespoke always on 5 Amare Stoudemire x Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke Always On

Amare Stoudemire’s arrival to New York City during the 2010 offseason proved to pay off immediate dividends for the franchise and the city. He brought a winning attitude with his ferocious offense, and garnered legitimate MVP consideration for leading the Knicks to playoff contention while standing as the sole leader of the team in the days before Melo. In 2011, Stoudemire was presented with his latest signature sneaker called the Air Max Sweep Thru, which served as the inspiration behind this special Air Force 1 Bespoke, designed as part of the ‘Nike Sportswear: Always On’ campaign. The shoe pays tribute to Amare’s undeniable status as a bonafide superstar, and was given away in limited quantities during Amare’s live appearance at 21 Mercer last December.

The camouflage-inspired upper is taken directly from the Sweep Thru strap, which features the same detail, although for the Bespoke, the pattern is achieved by the iconic Lasering method on a royal blue tumbled leather. Embroidered on the heel is Stoudemire’s nickname ‘STAT’ (Standing Tall And Talented), with the ‘A’ on the midsole colored in orange to distinguish his first initial. The final personal touch comes in the form of the custom hang-tag, which is uniquely addressed to each of the winners of the giveaway. Continue on below to get a full viewing of the Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke for Amare Stoudemire, and if this design sparks your own creativity, get in touch with 21 Mercer today to schedule a Bespoke appointment.

NBA Stars Pay Tribute To Trayvon Martin

nba trayvon martin NBA Stars Pay Tribute To Trayvon Martin

The news of the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin hits close to home – for other 17-year-olds, for mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends. But the fact that Martin’s killer is yet to be arrested has marked this already tragic event with anger, confusion, and bitterness, spreading worldwide as more than a story of death, but about a flawed legal system that would allow a murderer to walk free (while arresting someone for throwing flour at Kim Kardashian). Trayvon’s story has grasped the attention of a number of notable individuals worldwide, and Dwyane Wade and LeBron James showed their support by writing respectful quotes like “RIP Trayvon Martin” and “We Want Justice” on their sneakers during their Friday-night game against the Pistons.

The entire Miami Heat team also came together for a photo, with each player donning a hoodie – a garment that has become an iconic piece of imagery and a display of support, much like a LIVESTRONG wristband or a pink ribbon. Other NBA stars showed their “hoodie” support as well; Carmelo Anthony and Steve Nash tweeted pictures of themselves while Amare Stoudemire spent the entire pre-game shootaround on Friday – with the hood on – to pay his respects. With Trayvon’s story becoming one of the top headlines in the nation and thousands of supporters voicing their concern through petitions and rallies, we hope a swift act of justice comes soon.

NBA Feet: Amare Stoudemire – Nike Air Max Sweep Thru ‘Galaxy’ PE

March 22nd, 2012 by | 23 comments

nba feet amare stoudemire nike air max sweep thru galaxy pe 1 NBA Feet: Amare Stoudemire   Nike Air Max Sweep Thru Galaxy PE

How much more obvious can it get that a team hates their coach: a squad who reeled off seven wins in a row with an obscure Harvard-grad point guard suddenly loses six straight, only to come out the night their HC gets fired and win a 33-point blowout that starts another five game streak to the good?  Put simply, the New York Knicks tired of playing for Mike D’Antoni, and the team has been revitalized under interim boss Mike Woodson.  This fresh burst of new energy can be symbolized by All-Star power forward Amar’e Stoudemire, whose Nike Air Max Sweep Thru ‘Galaxy’ PEs debuted on Friday and have run in parallel with a commitment to winning that now clearly surpasses STAT’s desire for big offensive numbers.  The Knicks may still prove to be a force to reckon with, and we’ll continue to chronicle all their standout sneakers in our NBA Feet feature; click through to see what Amar’e was wearing during last night’s win in Philly and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via espn

Nike Air Max Sweep Thru ‘Galaxy’ PE

March 20th, 2012 by | 5 comments

nike air max sweep thru galaxy pe 1 Nike Air Max Sweep Thru Galaxy PE

Amare Stoudemire is usually a shoo-in for the annual NBA All-Star Game, even earning a starting nod in his first year as an Eastern Conference player. However, his streak of five straight All-Star Game selections came to halt in 2012, when the Knicks forward was not voted as a starter (ironically, because the votes went to his teammate Carmelo Anthony) and was not selected as a reserve. Amare’s been hampered by nagging injuries, and the sudden death of his brother has been weighing over him, which clearly accounts for the slight dip in production. However, Nike, like most other NBA fans, had projected Amare to be part of the festivities again, which is why Nike issued him this sick Air Max Sweep Thru PE, taking on the beloved ‘Galaxy’ theme. While Amare couldn’t floss ‘em at the ASG, he did wear ‘em during both wins against the Pacers – the Knicks’ last two games. Check out Amare and his Galaxy PEs after the jump and let us know what you think of this PE!

nba feet 3 19 12 NBA Feet: Weekend Recap   3/16   3/18

Apparently the NBA heard us loud and clear when we said the NCAA boys have the NBA ballers clearly beat in the ‘Feet’ category, but this weekend’s collection of sneakers might flip that script. Starting off with Monta Ellis’ Air Jordan ‘Bred’ display, we caught a slew of awesome Air Jordans, Nike Basketball PEs, and St. Patty’s Day PEs that stole the spotlight from the Second Round of NCAA Tourney games. Josh Howard wore a White/Green PE of the Air Jordan XIII that was identical to the Ray Allen PE – with the exception of the ‘Ray’ logo on the tongue. Nate Robinson and Jared Jeffries wore the Air Jordan X ‘Stealth’, while a couple of Knickerbockers sported some awesome St. Patty’s digs – namely Carmelo’s Melo M8 and Mike Bibby repping the Jordan CP3.V. Amare Stoudemire and DeMarcus Cousins rocked their All-Star Game ‘Galaxy’ PEs, Ty Lawson got his ‘Dunkman’ on, and Kobe swapped out of the ‘Attack Strong’ insole for his Kobe VII ‘Lakers’. We’ve got an immense attack of NBA Feet below so take a good look and let us know who rocked the best kicks! via Yahoo

Why the Cleveland Cavs? Lightly put, Michael, OWNED them. Ask Craig Ehlo, who still might be sitting on the Gund Arena floor doing ‘The Brady’. With the Air Jordan IV celebrating its Jordan-specific milestone year, Jordan Brand has looked back at some of Michael’s greatest hits (for the Cavs, those hits felt like haymakers), and looking back at that memorable video clip, it seems like the pause button was pressed when Michael floated in mid-air for what felt like…an inhuman amount of time. We’ve got some more detailed angles of the Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’ for you below, but if you’d rather see them on your feet, grab one of the available pairs now from jqtechdestination on eBay.

nba feet 2 1 12 NBA Feet: Around The League   1/30   1/31

What a way to close out the month of January! Just last night, Sneaker News showed you Ray Allen’s insane Air Jordan XIII PE in Black/Green, but that wasn’t the only notable sneaker sighting from the past two days. Al Harrington of the Denver Nuggets sported a Nike LeBron 9 iD colorway of Gold/Black, while C.J. Miles of the Utah Jazz wore a great colorway of the Nike Zoom KD III iD. Chris Paul wore a Blue/Red colorway of the Jordan CP3.V, while teammate Blake Griffin wore Kendrick Perkins’ face on his feet (actually the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011). The Knicks finally got back to winning ways, with Amare Stoudemire sporting a nice PE colorway of the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru, and Derrick Rose and the Bulls bounced back from the loss with their leader wearing the adidas adiZero Rose 2.5. Next to Ray’s XIIIs, the sighting of the two nights might be Earl Clark’s Royal Foams. Check out all the NBA action from the last two days of January below, and stay with Sneaker News as we keep you in tune with all of NBA Feet for the month of February! via ESPN.
