The NBA is overflowing with both explosive talent and serious sneakerheads, but Nate Robinson stands out as the only three-time Slam Dunk Contest winners with a diverse and attention-grabbing sneaker rotation to match his high wire act. Kryptonate has shown up in too many notable styles to mention here, and his latest offseason appearance is the shoe that’d probably beat them all if we polled a Best of 2012 list today. Nate’s ‘Pure Platinum’ Nike Air Yeezy 2s already have the toe wrinkles to prove they’ve been well-worn (plus a ‘Solar Red’ second course waiting on the sidelines), and here we see proof that Kanye West’s second Nike Sportswear collaboration can handle the hardwood (or asphalt, as the case may be) just as well as a concert stage. Click through to see the video in full (fast forward about halfway to get straight to the dunks) and let us know how these compare to some of the other atypical Yeezy 2 sightings we’ve observed since the June launch.
