nike basketball never stops summary Nike Basketball Never Stops

“…and we’re gonna continue to play, no matter what goes on.”

The NBA season is still mired in a lock-out. So what? The game of basketball never stops; it’s a year-round sport that sees no seasonal limit. From a pick-up game at a friend’s driveway to packed NBA arenas, the love for the sport stays strong all year round. Tuesday, November 1st, was to be tip-0ff for the 2011-12 NBA season; in its place, Nike Basketball introduces #BasketballNeverStops, which reiterates the message of love and desire for the game. Featuring NBA stars LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, and Amare Stoudemire, other notable figures like women’s basketball star Sue Bird and legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski, and cameo appearances by J. Cole and ?uestlove, the Nike #BasketballNeverStops puts a spotlight on the sport that is globally celebrated and enjoyed.

?uestlove x Nike Dunk High – Detailed Images

questlove nike dunk high detailed images summary ?uestlove x Nike Dunk High   Detailed Images

Questlove owns one of the most creative minds and hands in the music industry, a set of talents that have transferred to sneakers almost seamlessly. For his next collaboration with Nike Sportswear, Questlove chose the Nike Dunk – a shoe he calls “the tuxedo of Nikes”. That explains the tonal black colorway, one that he deems is ‘rockable’ with a suit. The tonal red and tonal yellow colorways come from Q’s desire to stand out and being the topic of conversation, something that can be achieved by those colorways. The unique design of the Dunk High Strap is actually inspired by mid-80′s American television and a humorous yet an all too real scenario in which a boy is trying to impress a girl with fashionable threads. The tonal yellow and black colorways feature the bellied swoosh from the Nike Blazer, with laser-etched Questlove emblems on the heel.

Questlove x Nike Dunk High Pack – Release Info

February 28th, 2011 by | No comments

questlove nike dunk cncpts summary Questlove x Nike Dunk High Pack   Release Info

The uber-talented ?uestlove and his mountainous afro hairdo can do no wrong. The adroit percussionist has dabbled with Nike once again, and even he states that his trio of Dunk Highs is a “complete opposite of [his] previous shoe…more conservative and toned down yet still just a lil bit of ‘Hey Check This Out!!!’ thrown in there.” That certainly is the case when juxtaposed with the ?uestlove x 1World x Nike Air Force 1, which features a boisterous colorway and ample use of elephant print. This Dunk High Pack features three separate colorways done in tonal style – one in red with a shirt-button fixed ‘Strap’ and two others in a ‘Bz’ format, which shows off a bellied vintage-style swoosh seen on the original Nike Blazer. This new tonal black version has been added to the bunch, and like the other two, you can see ?uestlove’s silhouette molded into the leather on the rear heel. These have dropped overseas but are set to release at select Nike Sportswear accounts like CNCPTS on March 4th, so take another look at all three below and let us know what you think.

Questlove x Nike Dunk High Strap + Dunk High BZ – New Images

Once again-gain-gain, ladies and gentlemen, Roots drummer ?uestlove has injected his own personal brand of adrenaline into a sneaker collaboration, this time on not one but two Nike Sportswear silhouettes.  And while we’ve seen countless Dunks over the years, the Questlove x Nike Dunk High Strap and Dunk High BZ are both totally unique amongst the model’s entire history!  For the former, it’s really obvious with an almost Alien Stomper-like midfoot strap covering most of the laces, while the latter goes for a subtler shift and simply applies the classic fat belly Swoosh as seen most prominently on the Nike Blazer (hence the BZ distinction).  Both pairs get tonal ?uestlove heads embossed into their lateral heels plus that same fro-picked silhouette on the tongue tags and you can see more shots of both pairs after the jump.  They’re currently slated to release exclusively at UNDEFEATED in Tokyo today, but would you buy one/both pair if you could get your hands on one?  via EspionageKicks
