The latest colorway of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Mercurial Vapor IX CR cleat gets some of the exposure by way of the latest custom sneaker from Mache.  This Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial ’The Sequel’ matches the striped look of the orange/yellow/white Mercurial Vapor 9 boot, and applies a similar Safari print to the Swoosh, but the iconic Nike logo itself is not made to look fast by positioning it on the forefoot or rendering it with tailing streaks as with the soccer boot’s design.  Let us know what you think after you’ve seen more below and stick with Sneaker News for the latest and best customs.

NBA Stars and Celebrities at Drew League

July 15th, 2013 by | 8 comments

drew league week 9 recap 13 900x599 NBA Stars and Celebrities at Drew League

Although the Drew League has been going on for the majority of this summer, this week was one of the first times that some NBA stars decided to cut their respective summer vacations short and help Nike live up to their ‘Summer is Serious’ campaign. Among those in attendance were James Harden, JaVale McGee, Darren Collison, and Nick Young. Even LA-based hip-hop artist The Game decided to get in on the action as a member of Harden’s Money Gang, which isn’t too surprising because Game’s is known to dabble in some high-level hooping. To see what sneakers made cameos in the Drew League’s ninth week, scroll below and let us know who rocked your favorite pair after the jump.

kobe bryant visits brazil Kobe Bryant Visits Brazil in Black Mamba Tour

Kobe Bryant recently made his way down to Brazil, heading to the southern hemisphere to further familiarize himself with South America’s soccer culture. The Black Mamba visited São Paulo, Salvador and Rio de Janeiro, linking up with soccer superstars like Ronaldo, Neymar and Ronaldinho. What’s more he had two sneakers on the whole time-as opposed to a sneaker/medical boot combo. Which sneakers? The Nike Kobe 8 “Mambacurial” and the Nike Kobe 8 “Venice Beach”. Continue reading to see shots of Kobe in Brazil, a market that we’re likely to see Nike showing more and more interest in over the next ten years, and let’s hope this bit of traveling means that his recovery is moving along rapidly.

Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial & Venice Beach

Kobe Bryant recently said he sees himself playing three to four more years for the Los Angeles Lakers.  That’s enough time to match Michael Jordan’s championships and get in the Karl Malone/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar neighborhood in career scoring.  The unceremonious end to Kobe’s 2012-13 season means he’ll have to fight uphill for these milestones, including coming back from the toughest injury from his career.  Kobe’s in good spirits and taking advantage of the summer’s restorative powers (remember, he played straight through last year en route to a second Olympic gold), including enjoying the game of football that has influenced him since his childhood in Italy.  Included in recent photos he’s tweeted from a soccer-centric vacation was a shot in the ‘Venice Beach’ Nike Kobe 8 alongside Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho and wearing the ‘Mambacurial’ in a shot posed with the CBF’s up and coming Leandro Damiao.  Tons of foot power in this post, so click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News because the Kobe 9 isn’t too far off.

Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial – Release Reminder

June 6th, 2013 by | 4 comments

mambacurial release reminder Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial   Release Reminder

The Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial will strike retailers tomorrow, June 7th. We’re used to seeing the Kobe stuff show up on Saturdays along with the rest of the Nike Basketball offerings but then again, we’re not exactly sure if you can still label this one a basketball shoe. The design picks up on cues from the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX soccer boot, going much more liberal with the football styling than previous Kobe releases, which took the easy route of an FCRB colorway here or there. Continue reading to see the Nike Kobe 8 MC and keep in mind that you can grab them in-stores tomorrow or right now on eBay.
