NBA Feet: Jeremy Lin – Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Low PE

The New York Knicks got back on track with a full and healthy roster last night as the home team hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers to kick off the post-All Star Weekend session of the NBA Season. For Lin, this game was particularly important; after his worst outing against Miami last Thursday, Jeremy needed to regain his confidence and prove that the only fluke about his game was in fact that poor outing against the Heat. Jeremy answered critics by dropping 19 points, 13 assists, and most importantly, giving up just one turnover, and did so while wearing the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 PE issued to him for the Rising Stars Challenge. However, Lin wore the special Hyperfuse Low iD for that game, opting to debut the Hyperdunk 2011 PE last night. Will Lin continue to rock this PE? Will it even release? We’ll keep you updated on the matter. via Yahoo

Jeremy Lin x Mars Blackmon ‘BALLIN’ T-Shirt By The Forest Lab

mars blackmon jeremy lin 1 Jeremy Lin x Mars Blackmon BALLIN T Shirt By The Forest Lab

Going from 12th man on the bench to superstar point guard in one of the most celebrated sports arena in the world is one thing, but to be the toast of the town in the year’s most star-studded basketball event is on a completely different level. Jeremy says he still has a hard time letting everything sink in, but we wonder how he handled being one of the brightest spotlights of the NBA All-Star Weekend. One of Lin’s proudest supporters is none other than Knicks fanatic Spike Lee, who was spotted during the All-Star Weekend wearing one of the funniest t-shirts we’ve seen; Jeremy Lin as Mars Blackmon on Spike Lee. Mars, as we know, is a fictional persona forged by Spike Lee during the Air Jordan advertisements in the early 90′s, but even Mars will admit that Lin’s success and meteoris rise goes beyond ‘the shoes’. If Linsanity has taken you over, hit up The Forest Lab to cope your own shirt! via FRESHNESS/jose3030

The league’s most promising first- and second-year players got together to participate in the 2012 BBVA Rising Stars Challenge that featured a mixed-and-matched team drafted by makeshift GMs Shaquille O’neal and Charles Barkley. Team Chuck took the win at the end with Cleveland Cavs rookie phenom Kyrie Irving taking home the MVP honors. Of course, we had our eyes glued to their feet, and the Rising Stars Challenge certainly did not disappoint; among the key sightings were there Hyperfuse Low iD for Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields and his Zoom Kobe VII PE, John Wall’s Zig Encore PE, Norris Cole’s LeBron 9 PE, and Blake Griffin’s scorching red Hyperdunk 2011s. The Rising Stars Challenge served as a platform for other brands who don’t get much notice, like Kemba Walker’s Under Armour Micro G Bloodline and Evan Turner’s Li-Ning Turningpoint ‘Year Of The Dragon’ PE.

Who hasn’t caught on with Linsanity yet? The basketball phenom known as Jeremy Lin has taken the global basketball horizon by storm, accelerating at blinding speeds to a level of superstardom that has generated excitement all throughout the world. Attempts to measure his impact on the game of basketball have been made, but with Linsanity continuing to spread at fast paces, it might be better of to sit back and enjoy the ride. He’s become one of the biggest fan attractions during the month of February, selling out crowds both at Home and Away, while earning the top spot in merchandise sales while being mentioned in the same breath as the LeBrons, Wades and Kobes of the league.

Jeremy Lin was signed on as a Nike basketball athlete for his potential and his global presence long before Linsanity, but his recent rise in fame was enough reason for Nike to place their newly-minted star in the spotlight by introducing Lin’s current in-game selection, the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low, in a special Nike iD colorway. It’s got a royal blue upper with a white/orange gradient Hyperfuse sectional with a solid white outsole, black midsole, Lin’s ’17′ jersey detailed on the ankle, and ‘LIN’ printed on the tongue. Want to order the exact same one? Go directly here to Nike ID where the exact design is already arranged (pick your own number and iD), and watch Jeremy play in these Hyperfuse Lows during the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend.

Did Charles Barkley just make as turrible a decision as the 29 other teams who failed to see the greatness in New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin?  Team Chuck lost out on their chance to secure Linsanity, who was drafted to Team Shaq for the newly revised NBA Rising Stars Challenge, where Lin will join Knicks teammate Landry Fields among other standout rookie and second-year stars.  And if Nike Basketball decided they wanted to create another campout line as big as the galaxy itself, all it would take is a quick-fire release date in New York for this new Nike Hyperdunk 2011 Low Jeremy Lin PE.  This NYK’d-out player exlusive honors Lin’s meteoric rise to fame with a ‘J.L. Soph’ tongue tag in step with the ‘Galaxy’/'Big Bang’ signature releases, and this morning’s NBA TV-telecast practice session suggests Jeremy’s pair will be broken in by game time.  Have a closer look after the jump and let us know how this pair you’ll see during the game tonight on TNT compares to the ones they’ll showcase on Sunday at the All-Star Game.  via Nike Basketball Taiwan/SC

Madison Square Garden and the NBA store reports Jeremy Lin jerseys to be the top selling jerseys and fan apparel of the month. With Linsanity taking over the world, there’s no question that Lin’s status as a Taiwanese-American draws appeal from American fans as well as those in the Far East. Just yesterday, Sneaker News reported the news of Nike’s extension of Jeremy Lin’s contract with the Swoosh, and they certainly wasted no time in spreading the Linsanity as we have a look at two new t-shirts featuring the catchy bold-faced syntax on the chest. Both colorways of the t-shirt feature that camo-like print seen on Nike Basketball PE releases, so could this signify a PE for Jeremy Lin? Let us know what you think of Jeremy Lin’s future prospect as a Nike Basketball athlete (is he worthy of a sig?) and cop either new colorway right now at Nikestore, and let’s see how Linsanity erupts tonight when the New York Knicks visit the Miami Heat tonight at 7 PM EST.

Nike Extends Jeremy Lin’s Contract

February 22nd, 2012 by | 11 comments

nike extends jeremy lins contract Nike Extends Jeremy Lins Contract

It’s well known that Nike spends a huge amount of time and money scouting out future NBA stars, locking them down with lucrative contracts that are mutually beneficial for the involved parties. This time around it seems as if a star has simply fallen in their lap, as Jeremy Lin (aka Linsanity, Super Lintendo, Lincredible, etc.) has recently gone from sitting on the bench to galvanizing the New York Knicks and lighting up Kobe in the Garden. No doubt a result of the seismic effects of Linsanity, news hit today of Nike extending Lin’s contract, a move that is rumored to grant the newly minted Knicks star his own PE, possibly in the form of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011. It’s hard to image Nike not striking while the iron is this hot, and you can be sure that Sneaker News will have the info if the Linsanity movement is indeed crystallized in sneaker form. Until then, let us know in the comments if you think this is a good move for Nike and whether or not Jeremy Lin can keep leading his team with such amazing performances. Also, hit the jump for Nike Basketball‘s official statement on his recent rise.
