2012 nba all star game NBA Feet: 2012 NBA All Star Game

The 2012 NBA All-Stars were ready for lift-off in Orlando as they left the crowd in a daze with spectacular dunks, unthinkable passes, and of course, a series of sneakers that left us startled and thoroughly impressed. Sneaker News has been keeping you up to date with all the 2012 All-Star kicks by showing you the official All-Star team photos and portraits and a preview of the ‘Galaxy’ PE’s, but there’s nothing better than to see them in action. Starting with the East, LeBron James showed off his radiant orange LeBron 9s, while teammate Dwyane Wade went with the Air Jordan 2012 with the royal blue bootie (switching to the Fly Wade 2 for the second half). Carmelo Anthony wore his All-Star PE of the Melo M8, while East starters and adidas Basketball pillars Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard showed off their neon orange PEs. Andre Iguodala’s Nike Zoom Hyperenforcer PE got a lot of attention (especially with his lefty windmill in the first half), and Rajon Rondo recorded the second All-Star on-feet moment of the Galaxy Foams. Both Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard switched up their PEs, going with the hot orange in the first half and changing up in the second to different Royal and Grey PEs.

Out West, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant provided waves of scoring while rocking their Nike Basketball signatures. Clippers star Chris Paul hooked up with teammate Blake Griffin on several occasions, flashing the CP3.V and Hyperdunk 2011 ‘Galaxy’ in the process. Russell Westbrook dunked his way into the spotlight with his golden ‘Galaxy’ PE of the Zoom Hyperenforcer, while Tony Parker and Steve Nash dished and swished with the Zoom Brave V and Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Low. Kevin Love, the 3-point champion, brought Peak to the ASG with his 361-degrees PE. The game itself was filled with spectacular moments; the East came back from a huge deficit to take the game down to the last shot, while teammate Dwyane Wade recorded the third triple-double in All-Star Game history. Kobe Bryant got his nose bloodied for a short moment while becoming the highest-scoring All-Star in history, while Kevin Durant bloodied the entire East squad by pouring in 36 points and taking home the All-Star Game MVP award. All in all, the 2012 NBA All-Star Game was one of the best we’ve ever seen; great high-scoring action, exciting weekend events, pre-game and half-time performances, and of course, one of the best sneaker spreads ever to make it to an All-Star Game floor. Check out the entire 2012 NBA All-Star Game recap after the jump and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more NBA Feet features as the 2012 NBA season approaches the second half. via ESPN/Yahoo

Russell Westbrook’s Air Jordan III ‘True Blue’ Rollerskates

December 27th, 2011 by | 24 comments

air jordan iii true blue roller skates russell westbrook 1 Russell Westbrooks Air Jordan III True Blue Rollerskates

During the late 1980′s, the footwear scene in two popular sports would change forever. The Air Jordan III was created by Tinker Hatfield, re-routing the Air Jordan legacy into the astounding heights it is currently floating around today, and inline skates began to be mass-manufactured, making the 2×2 roller-skate set-up an official ‘Retro’ and vintage item. This funky pair of Air Jordan III Rollerskates in the ‘True Blue’ colorway was recently ‘flossed’ on the internet by a stern-faced Russell Westbrook, who backed up his photo with a claim that his skating skills are up there with his rock-dishing ability. You might remember that OG pair of the Nike Killshot roller-skates we showed you on Sneaker News before, but you would you consider rocking Air Jordan Retro rollerskates to your local roller derby?

Nike Hyperfuse 2011 – Rajon Rondo + Russell Westbrook Home PE’s

October 19th, 2011 by | 16 comments

nike hyperfuse 2011 rondo westbrook home pe Nike Hyperfuse 2011   Rajon Rondo + Russell Westbrook Home PEs

Among the great crimes against basketball fans perpetrated during the NBA’s latest lockout is how we’ve been robbed of one of the best crop of young point guards the league has ever seen.  These past few years have been absolutely electric as we’ve seen young 1s like Chris Paul and Derrick Rose take the position to new heights in the wake of Steve Nash’s back-to-back MVP awards in the middle of last decade.  The list goes on with guards like Deron Williams and the two guys pictured above all relying on the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 for their player exclusive sneaker needs.  Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook’s PEs are made to match ‘home’ looks for the Celtics and Thunder, respectively, the kind of thing that’d make Kendrick Perkins come to tears.  They could be tears of joy though, because these white-based Hyperfuse 2011s look quite crisp, especially Westbook’s ice-soled edition.  Click through for more images of both pairs and stick with Sneaker News for the latest NBA PE sneakers, 2011-12 season or no.  via Kenlu

South Florida All-Star Classic Game Recap

south florida classic recap summary South Florida All Star Classic Game Recap

While it appears that at least the first two weeks of the NBA will be shelved, the league’s biggest stars made sure that basketball fans didn’t go without some early-October live action hoops. In an exhibition game called the South Florida All-Star Classic, NBA stars gathered in Florida, forging alliances under the umbrella of Team LeBron and Team Wade; on Wade’s squad were NBA All-Stars Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul, while on LeBron’s side, Chris Bosh, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Durant joined forces. The crowd was ready to witness the world’s greatest strut their stuff, and the ballers on court were definitely ready to put on a show.

During this game, we were treated to a visual specialty of new basketball kicks meant for the 2011-12 season; LeBron James wore the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’, while Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and Kevin Durant each wore their respective new signatures (Fly Wade 2, Melo M8, CP3.V, Zoom KD IV). Amare Stoudemire was also spotted with the Air Max Sweep Thru, Russell Westbrook rocked the Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 PE, and Rajon Rondo selected the tonal-volt Hyperdunk 2011. The final outcome had Team Wade victorious by the score of 141-140, but it was LeBron James’ post-game speech that erased any Win or Loss and unified both the players and the fans, proving that basketball truly never stops. Check out the recap from the star-studded game and let us know who rocked the best kicks of the night! via Yahoo!.

Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 – Russell Westbrook PE

September 30th, 2011 by | No comments

nike hyperfuse 2011 russell westbrook pe 1 Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011   Russell Westbrook PE

There’s a clear line drawn between the Hyperfuse and Hyperdunk. High-powered dunkers and enforcers, to the left. Lightning-quick floor generals and speedsters, on the right. Russell Westbrook is clearly in the latter category, and Nike recognized this budding superstar’s potential and made him part of the Zoom Hyperfuse roll-out last season (remember his ‘Why Not’ PE?). Here’s a look at a Russell Westbrook PE of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011; it features a Photo Blue/Team Orange colorway with a solid translucent outsole, a ‘camo’ detailed print on the inner lining, and a pixelated camo graphic on the tongue. According to Niketown Chicago, these are currently available at Niketown locations in Chicago, Seattle, and Los Angeles, and quantities are said to be limited. Continue reading for another look and if you’re a fan of Westbrook or this sick colorway of the Hyperfuse 2011, place a call to the three aforementioned Niketown locations and get your pair! via SLP_Product on NT.

We got our first look at a season that may never be this June when Nike Basketball showed off a bunch of player exclusive colorways for some of their most explosive players.  The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 was teased in Rudy Gay, Russell Westbrook, Lamar Odom and, of course, Rajon Rondo PE colorways, and now we have a closer look at each pair.  Odom and Westbrook’s pairs are two-toned while Rondo and Gay add a third shade for their Swooshes, and we expect all of these to be fairly limited (House of Hoops, perhaps?).  Click through to see more photos of all four Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 PEs and grab them well in advance of the retail drop from Kicks-crew.
