Jordan Brand Signs Blake Griffin

The next generation of Jordan Brand is looking mighty healthy as the brand that Michael built has been fortified with the presence of one of the most exciting players in the game today. Blake Griffin, who found his way into our hearts with his deadpan charisma and magnificent dunking showcase, officially joins Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Ray Allen, and newcomer Russell Westbrook as the brand’s headlining athletes, teaming up with CP3 in one of the biggest basketball markets in the nation.

This may come as a surprise considering the sudden stoppage of the momentum gained by Nike and the non-signature flagship Hyperdunk model, and many of Blake’s fans projected the Oklahoma alumni to eventually join LeBron, KD, and Kobe as Nike’s exclusive signature-sneaker club. However, this is certainly an outstanding strategic move by Jordan Brand in the wake of Dwyane Wade’s departure; Los Angeles, New York, Miami, OKC, and Chicago make up the bulk of the big-market teams, and Jordan Brand certainly has their chess pieces in the right places.

This week, in his season debut, Blake wore a Royal/Black colorway of the Jordan Super.Fly, which all but sealed Griffin’s allegiance with Jordan Brand. The question that instantly surfaces is: Will Blake get his own signature shoe? Who will get his own shoe first – Russell, or Blake? Will either of them even get their own shoe, or will they be the ambassadors for the top-shelf models like the Super.Fly? There’s a lot of potential with this newfound partnership, so be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all updates regarding the newly acquainted Jordan Brand and Blake Griffin connection.

blake griffin jordan super fly october 31 Blake Griffin Opens 2012 13 NBA Season In Jordan Super.Fly

In an era in which what’s “on feet” is as titillating as any other aspect of the game of basketball, Sneaker News has been doing its best to be on top of covering all the major player movements between footwear brands. This NBA off-season was one of the most eventful we’ve undergone in years, with Dwyane Wade making an incredibly daring move from Jordan Brand to Li-Ning and Russell Westbrook being called on take his place. Although the NBA Season as officially started, the dust hasn’t settled yet; last night, during the Los Angeles Clippers’ season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies, NBA superstar Blake Griffin put the Hyperdunk 2012s aside and whipped out the Jordan Super.Fly, donning the Jumpman logo in an NBA game for the first time in his career. Blake Griffin coasting side by side with Chris Paul in Jordans, in one of the biggest basketball hot-spots in the world? That’ll certainly register another 10.0 on the Richter scale. Let us know what you think and stay tuned because this story has yet to entirely unfold!

Blake Griffin Re-Signs With Nike

October 1st, 2012 by | 7 comments

blake griffin nike contract Blake Griffin Re Signs With Nike

You can’t make up Blake Griffin’s career trajectory. From missing his entire first season due to a serious injury with the threat of perhaps never regaining his old self, to becoming one of the most sought-after market icons, Blake Griffin’s meteoric rise to stardom can be attest to one thing – he can play basketball pretty well. His skills garnered an invite to the 2012 Team USA squad, but an untimely injury forced him to miss the Games, depriving basketball fans of what could have been a murderous dunking spree on the entire world.

But Blake’s been busy wheeling and dealing numbers as well; a few months back, he re-upped with the hot Clippers for five years, and it appears he settled his precarious contract situation with Nike as he showed up at Media Day wearing a PE colorway of the Nike Hyperdunk. While the full details of his new commitment to Nike has yet to be disclosed, it’s clear that Nike will keep him around for more than the $400,000 that it required to lock him down in his first contract. Watch for Nike and Blake to take Nike Basketball to new heights, so check with us for updates and we’ll keep you in tune to any interesting Nike x Blake Griffin developments.

blake griffin hyperdunk elite white red pe 5 Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite   Blake Griffin Autographed PE

Despite his lack of experience and perhaps over-expenditure of energy on the court, Blake Griffin showed an incredible amount of poise during the 2012 NBA Season and Playoffs, earning him a rightful spot among the league’s elite in the 2012 Team USA Olympic Team. An unfortunate accident forced him off the team (and deprived the world of a potential redux of Vince Carter’s aerial dominance in 2000), but Blake at 100% will be ready to bring the Clippers back to Championship contention this upcoming season. During the most recent Playoffs, Blake was issued this PE colorway of the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite with the Red Swoosh and laces (instead of Gold). This is likely the last of the Hyperdunk 2011 we’ll see on Blake as the Lunar Hyperdunk+ is now BG32′s go-to pair, so check out the extra images below and if you want to add these to your budding Blake memorabilia collection, head on over to the auction from jtb513 on eBay.

Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite – Blake Griffin “Away” PE

June 27th, 2012 by | 3 comments

nike zoom hyperdunk 2011 elite blake griffin pe 1 Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite   Blake Griffin Away PE

Nike Basketball’s ‘Elite’ Series proved to be worth the added time in R&D – just ask LeBron James, who rode his own Elite model to his first ever NBA Title. Another ‘Elite’ athlete with an immeasurable upside is Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who made his NBA Playoffs debut wearing the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite; he dunked and rebounded his way to the center of the superstar spotlight before eventually falling to the San Antonio Spurs, but even with the early exit, Nike’s got a nice chunk of their chips in the right corner. This size 17 PE was one of Blake’s three pairs for the Playoffs and if you recall that moment when he tore through his Hyperdunks, chances are you aren’t nearly as powerful enough to do the same – even if you wear a size 17 like Blake does. More on this sick BG32 PE below, so take a look and visit the auction from mahibb on eBay.

All eyes are on the Air Yeezy 2 release this Saturday, but if you need another pair of sneakers that are “out of this world” to divert your attention, it’s definitely Blake Griffin’s Hyperdunk 2011 ‘Galaxy’ PEs that he wore during the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend. A tentative release date for the States has been swirling around, but not much more noise has been made regarding this great All-Star colorway (some argue that it’s the best ‘Galaxy’ of the year), but a size 14 promo sample just surfaced on the electronic bay (not made for Blake, as he wears a size 17). Note – these are different from the pairs that released, as these feature the Galaxy-themed laces as well as the bright green overlay on the upper by the heel. More shots of this hard-to-find piece below, so take a look and check out the complete listing from ronnihughes on eBay.

Blake Griffin Tears His Hyperdunk Elite PE

May 10th, 2012 by | 72 comments

blake griffin tears his hyperdunk elite pe 1 Blake Griffin Tears His Hyperdunk Elite PE

It’s safe to say by this point, that Blake Griffin will forever be inextricably tied to the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011. Blake broke out onto the national stage at last year’s dunk contest, debuted the Hyperdunk 2011 in his rookie ASG appearance the following night, then proceeded to posterize half of the league in the shoe before they could even get a pair. And because he was the first on board with the current model, Griffin also got a ‘Galaxy’ PE this year, in addition to standout colorways like the ‘Blake Show’ and Supreme-level player exclusives. With all this mutual success in the rear view, it wasn’t at all shocking when Blake suited up with the Hyperdunk 2011 Elite for the Clippers’ playoff run, but what’s happened in that series has been unexpected to say the least.

A series marked by blown leads, remarkable comebacks and a couple of dangerous dark horse championship contenders took another turn on Wednesday night at FedEx Forum. The Memphis Grizzlies avoided blowing another game and forced the series back to Los Angeles, where Blake Griffin switches back to a white ‘home’ Hyperdunk Elite not just to match the Clippers’ white home unis. Blake’s tendency to get punished by the opposing team continued as 265lb Grizz center Marc Gasol (who ironically enough, was also wearing Hyperdunk Elites after switching from the same Air Max Fly By Griffin rocked during his dunk contest win) plodded onto Griffin’s left foot, causing an awkwardly trapped ankle and a torn toe on the black ‘away’ edition.

This is a case where the substantial performance advantages conferred by modern synthetics can quickly turn into reminiscing on the durability of an ‘old fashioned’ postseason sneaker like the just-retroed Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’.  But if the past is any indication, this modest setback will likely result in further innovation in Beaverton’s most famous kitchen in the name of addressing such issues. The Grizzlies and Clippers have also demonstrated they know all about that old what-doesn’t-kill-you adage during this series; which of your basketball sneakers has proved the most durable over the years?
