During each NBA season, there are several things that always seem to stick around. One of the most recognizable brands represented in the NBA is Gatorade. Arguably the most popular sports drink, Gatorade has provided the NBA them in game drink of choice for over a decade. Another incredibly recognizable brand is the Nike produced brand, Air Jordan.
Jordan Brand is just off the heels of the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Win Like ‘82”, which comes as a surprise since Jordan usually leaves their most popular silhouette untouched until a few days before Christmas.
This December, as part of Jordan Brands holiday lineup, the two brands will collide for a release of T-shirts, hats, as well as two pairs of sneakers. One of these sneakers is the ever-iconic Air Jordan 6. This colorway is very similar to the class “Carmine” colorway. The toecap and side panels are represented in a bright orange, with green accents throughout the sneaker. Additionally, the insoles feature the iconic Gatorade lightning bolt logo. One question will be which NBA athlete will be the first to lace these up. Maybe during the Christmas Day games?
The Air Jordan 6 Retro “Gatorade” is slated to release on December 16, 2017, for $190. Make sure to keep it locked for any additional release information.
Kobe Bryant may have retired more than a season ago, but his sneaker remains the go-to for many NBA athletes. If you haven’t watched this season and perhaps been living under a rock, the Nike Kobe A.D. is the weapon of choice. Not only has the shoe been worn by your usual DeMar DeRozan’s of world, your Julius Randle’s of the world, or your Andre Iguoudala’s of the world, but rookies have been lacing up the A.D. Mid’s quite often since draft night.
This new A.D. colorway arrives in a MPLS esque throwback with a Grey upper and Yellow hits throughout. Nike has not release a Laker colorway yet, but this is by far the closest we have gotten towards since their debut a couple months ago during Summer. A new addition to the shoe however is the new snakeskin pattern on the Grey suede. Not seen in a long time by Kobe fans, the snake print is welcomed as it is a standard for the series in design. The Swoosh is done in Habanero Red, a new color by Nike, combined with Circuit Orange and translucent outsole to finish the look.
The Nike Kobe A.D. “Grey Snake” has a tentative release date of November 17, 2017 for $150.00 USD. We will keep you updated if the shoe launches on a different date.
As the Nike juggernaut takes over the NBA apparel, gear, and sneakers, the previous outfitter Stance rides off to the sunset in lowkey fashion. With a somewhat bittersweet ending between the NBA and Stance, fans of the socks should look into their local department stores for this Kicksologists deal.
This past weekend, our Kicksologists managing editor @Jefferrrson came through with a steal on several socks over at Ross stores. Originally for sale at $26.00 USD MSRP, the socks were sold for $1.99 to $3.99 at the registers. Do the math and that is a $22.00 savings per sock for men sizes 9-12. Reports of quarter-cut socks are also making its way to shelves, but we were not able to locate any.
If you visit Stance.com, the same socks are going for $10.00 USD. They are still for sale, but won’t be in as many stores as before since the Nike and NBA outfitter partnership.
Many have regarded the Stance socks as the best piece of threads for their hooping needs. Over the years, we have had cushion zoned socks from adidas, Under Armour, and of course Nike. All have been about the same polyester materials that stretch and wicken moisture, but nothing really feels like Stance. It has great cushion in zoned areas on the heel and forefoot. It keeps your feet dry for longer periods than other brands as well as keeping your feet from sliding within the shoe during play.
For $3.99, you cannot go wrong at all with this deal. Make sure to visit your local Ross and Marshall department stores for the steals. Hit up @jefferrrson on Twitter and Instagram if you have any questions or any leads for deals so we can spread it to our community. Check the video above for more details.

A couple weeks ago, this Kobe Inline inspired model was scheduled to drop. With October almost ending, we finally have these beauties available for you Mamba enthusiasts.
The Nike Kobe A.D. Mid has been the weapon for athletes like DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyle Kuzma, and more. With the season in full bloom, more and more NBA players will lace these up for the upcoming weeks in this Court Purple combination paying homage to the original Kobe 4 Inline colorway years ago.
This Nike Kobe A.D. features a white upper with clean Purple accents throughout the tongue, Swoosh, outsole, and inner lining. The upper material appears to be a suede look to it, but is a unique approach for the lightweight court performance. On the heel of the sneaker is a set of molded graphics spelling out, “KOBE”. In addition, the triple embroidered swoosh adds some flavor to the sneaker which is a first for the Kobe signature series.
You can now find this pair available now at Nikestore.com for the retail price of $150.00 USD. It should also be sold at major Nike retailers arriving now at a store near you.
