    Nike Kobe 11 4KB ‘Cargo Green’

    August 4th, 2016

     

    Been a while since we heard some Kobe Bryant sneaker news and today, we finally got something new for you Mamba enthusiasts.

    Sporting the latest Flyknit upper from Nike Basketball, this 4KB model arrives this Summer in a never-before-seen army silhouette combination.  Can’t remember the last time a Kobe sneaker had gum bottom, but these are sure to do very well once they drop.  The upper consists hits of military green and red Flyknit making it a legit #mambaARMY colorway (see what I did there).  Nike also chose to black out the tongue, laces, and logo creating a very sleek and low-key look for the sneaker.

    No word yet on what inspires this ‘Cargo Green’ colorway, but it brings a new vibe to the Kobe 11 collection that fans will enjoy.  Many agree that the Kobe 11 has one of the best lineups for colors in years, and I definitely can’t deny that.

    The Nike Kobe 11 4KB ‘Cargo Green’ is set to release this Summer with no official date.  Price should be $220.00 USD as like the previous 4KB models. Will keep you posted on the official release date as it becomes available.

    Air Jordan Retro 11 “Space Jam” 2016 Release

    July 26th, 2016

    You’re probably going to get tired of this by the Holidays, but it happens each and every year.  We all anticipate the December Jordan 11 release on an annual basis, so seeing new photos and new information about the sneaker, shouldn’t surprise you this time of year.

    Here we find ourselves once again in early Summer finding out more about this years, “Space Jam” iteration.  You may know by now that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the iconic movie.  As of right now, no reports of a cameo by Michael Jordan, but we do get to see LeBron James star along with the Looney Tunes and a promising supporting cast (hopefully).

    MICHAEL JORDAN SPACE JAM SHAQ

    Jordan Brand has insured us with repacking their Retro lineup by remastered versions of their original counterpart, thus in this case a “45” on the heel tab.  Many are calling it by what they see, but not really looking into the history of the sneaker.  In the movie, he wore the 23 version while on court he wore the 45.  Specifically during the 1995 NBA Playoffs.  Both sneakers were available at the time for the movie, but eventually the 23 was used on screen.

    As far as the shape and silhouette of the sneaker, this is as close as you’ll get to the original 1995 version.  The patent leather cut is thicker than the usual recent XI retro’s, which may bother some, but is true to the first.  Instead of the usual Royal Blue Jumpman and branding, it is now a Concord blue/purple.  In some photos it may appear Royal, but it isn’t.

    Everything else stays classic with the translucent sole, white midsole, and ballistic mesh upper.  Remember at the time of this release back in 1995, the Jordan 11 model was groundbreaking in technology by debuting a patent leather material for the court.  It was never used before and the team of Tinker and Jordan wanted something more elegant and yet functional.  The patent leather was a lot lighter to use than leather, but maintained the same support and lockdown for the foot.

    The Air Jordan Retro 11 “Space Jam” is scheduled for December 17, 2016 for $220.00 USD.  Not sure how many will be made as last years “72-10” 11’s was the most produced JB sneaker in history… at least in recent times.  Check out the photos below for the details and remember to start planning soon if you want to grab a couple of pairs, let alone one.

    Nike Kobe 11 ‘3D’ Release

    July 19th, 2016

    Hollywood and The Black Mamba are at it again with this movie inspired sneaker.

    Believe it or not, Kobe Bryant may seem very serious on court, but off the court, he’s all about family and his new Kobe Inc. company.  He is also a big movie buff with past sneakers being inspired by films such as the Dark Knight, Bruce Lee: Enter the Dragon,  and Kill Bill (inspired his Sheath Shozoku logo).  With Kobe Bryant no longer in the opening credits for the Los Angeles Lakers, his inspiration still lingers with this new 3D inspired sneaker from Nike Basketball.

    NIKE KOBE 6 3D GLASSES

    3D glasses were packaged with the Kobe 6 ‘3D’ sneaker in 2011.

    Appearing in a speckled 3D print, these Nike Kobe 11 arrives this Summer in low-top form.  Unsure if it comes packaged with a set of glasses like it did 5 years ago with the Kobe 6, but these for sure will have that effect.  Done in the engineered mesh model, the 3D pattern sets a nice pattern similar to the old school 3 dimensional glasses.  At one point, 3D televisions was a thing, especially at the time the original Kobe model came out in 2011.  Since then, the 3D craze has died down so it’s a nice surprise to see these joints coming back once again.

    The Nike Kobe 11 ‘3D’ will release this upcoming Summer, possibly in July.  Since this is an EM model, it should be around $160.00 USD retail.  Could also be a special premium release due to the colorway.  Stay tuned for more information.

    Ben Simmons Signs with Nike Basketball

    June 24th, 2016

    Ben Simmons, Just Do It.

    We are one week away from the NBA Draft and sneaker companies are signing some rookies already.  This year, there are two main prospects that the world has their eyes on, Brandon Ingram and Ben Simmons.  Both the Sixers and Lakers are in position to draft one of them as both organizations look to boost their current roster in the NBA.

    It’s always very exciting to see which player gets signed by Nike, adidas, or Under Armour as each player offers unique abilities and marketing appeal.  adidas offered Simmons $10M at first, but then upped the anti to $17M-20M with over five years with bonuses.  Nike’s offer was $12M over five years with smaller bonuses.  With no surprise, Ben Simmons has signed with Nike making him a larger draw than Andrew Wiggins last year.  Wiggins was signed by adidas with $11M.  Nike had a commercial shoot with Foot Locker as seen above with D’Angelo Russel, Karl Anthony Towns, and Devin Booker.  You could very well be looking at the future of Nike Basketball.

    Nike continues to dominate the basketball market even with adidas and Under Armour on the climb.  It’ll be interesting where Brandon Ignram will sign, but expect him to sign with a brand soon.  Perhaps he will wait until the draft is over to see which company he wants to represent, but if you ask me, he would be great with adidas.  But Nike was Duke’s main partner so who knows at this point.

    Stay tuned here on Kicksologists to see all the sneaker news within the 2016 NBA Draft.  Keep it locked.

    Nike Kobe 11 Elite ‘GCR’ New Colorway Images

    June 24th, 2016

    Currently on tour in Asia, Kobe Bryant and Nike Basketball continue to spread the love of basketball and Swoosh overseas.

    Nike Basketball is brewing another colorway in an exclusive Black/Gold-White sneaker that looks to pay tribute to his career.  On the box label it states, ‘GCR’ which is stated to translate to, “Great Career Recall”.  Whether it’s another nod to his career and pasts achievements who knows, but it definitely has a championship look.  This colorway is certainly a nice consolation prize for those who missed out the ‘Fade to Black’ Kobe 11’s.

    These have a heel tab similar to the white and red horse colorways, meaning the price could retail for $220.00 USD.  The black Flyknit looks super clean combined with the metallic gold hits along the swoosh and shozoku logo on the tongue.  Nike went along with a white solid rubber outsole to contrast and keep you from slipping if you decide to take these on court.

    There is no information right now if these will drop stateside, but the photo is from overseas.  Since it’s an Elite model, expect the price to be at least $200.00 USD.  We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
