James Harden has evolved into one of the best players in the league. Leading the league in assist at 11.3, the Beard has propelled the Rockets into third seed and into the Playoffs. Running for MVP, James Harden debuted this “Fear the Fork” colorway of his adidas Vol. 1.
One of the more vibrant editions, adidas has dedicated this latest colorway to The Beard’s Alma Mater, Arizona State University. Dubbed, “Fear the Fork” this ASU PE is designed with a black knit upper and gold across the toe, laces, and three stripes inspired byt he desert sun.
Harden became his own man at ASU averaging, 19 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.7 assists a game.
“I decided to go to ASU, do my own thing and it was all work from there. THat was the beginning of who I am as a man.” Harden explained. “I could’ve left school after my freshman year, but I felt like I wasn’t mature yet and had more growing up to do. Arizona State helped me, and I got to show my love and how much they mean to me.”
Harden was then selected as third overall pick in 2009 and is now having his best season yet. Dropping March 4, the adidas Vol 1. “Fear the Beard” will retail at $140.00 USD. Check out the detailed photos below and let us know what you think.
Kevin Durant has been the talk of the league since he signed with the Warriors last Summer. With all that buzz, Nike Basketball doesn’t seem to be fazed as they look into the future with a new model for their sniper in the Bay.
This new Elite model for the KD 9 signature features several new updates to the original model. First off, you have a higher cut around the ankle, with a slip-on bootie that features a lightweight textile material for a snug fit. This would allow for a more comfortable ride for that number 1 seed Playoff run. A new feature to the KD line would be this new intricate lacing system. Never seen this type of arrangement on a sneaker before, so it’ll be quite interesting to see how this would accommodate some players. Lastly, the Zoom Air and a redesigned woven Flyknit upper returns so those who enjoyed the KD 9, should enjoy this one as well.
Will be interesting to see what Nike Basketball shells out this Playoffs for their signature athletes. The KD 9 Elite looks to be a lock for many as the KD 9 is a huge favorite for many ballers. One of the best performers from Nike Basketball last year, Nike has once again perfected the KD model and propelled it to the top of the category. We also have another colorway debuted by KD in black shown below.
The Nike KD 9 Elite will debut in Asia on February 23, 2017 but should be releasing in the US soon. Price point will be around $160 to $175. Stay tuned for more details here on Kicksologists.
Debuting his first signature model this weekend, four-time All-Star Paul George and Nike Basketball gives us another colorway of the low-cut sneaker. This second colorway comes dressed in true Indiana Pacer form dubbed, “Ferocity” by Nike Basketball.
Being an avid fisherman in the off-season, the PG 1 is reflects George’s passion for fishing. The outsole traction pattern is inspired by fish scales providing multi-directional support on the hardwood. The medial side of the left shoe has “5-1-15” inscribed to it honoring his daughters first birthday while the right shoe has his birthday, “5-2-90”. On the right heel tab, there is a stripe representing the titanium rod used to repair Paul George’s right-leg injury during the Olympics exhibition in 2014.
As far as performance, the Nike PG 1 will use a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for a low and responsive ride. Nike Basketball usually uses heel Zoom in their basketball models, so the PG 1 clearly started off in the right direction. A distinctive forefoot strap anchored by Flywire cables assures lockdown and containment for the player. Paul George also wanted the silhouette to be as simple as possible resulting in such a clean simple look.
The PG 1 “Ferocity” will be available March 4, 2017 for a affordable price of $110.00 USD. If you play NBA 2K17, the game has implemented the sneaker in gameplay and can be used for your MyPlayer effective today. You can view the video above. We’ll have a performance review once we get hands on the sneaker on release, so stay tuned.
Nike released their Black History Month collection not so long ago. The pack celebrates Black Heritage in sports and beyond any court or stadium. Their Equality campaign has been the first of it’s kind as it’s athlete’s have been more vocal than ever. Nike continues to impact the youth and the new generation with this new model for the Kobe line, the Nike Kobe A.D. BHM.
Despite being retired, Kobe Bryant still lands a BHM colorway, but can only be purchased through Nike I.D. The Nike Kobe A.D. comes dressed in a White, Black, and Metallic Gold color scheme, the same as the rest of the pack. Oddly enough, you won’t be able to fully customize, the sneaker and as of this post, Nike has taken down the option.
The Nike Kobe A.D. “BHM” is going for $160.o0 USD. The option is currently unavailable. Stay tuned for more info.
Nike is constantly evolving each year. Whether it’s with technological advances like Flyknit, “Unlocking” Zoom Air, or simply creating another cover athlete, Paul George, they continue to strive for greatness as they rise above competition.
Paul George is finally getting his own signature model, the PG 1. In the past, Paul George has been seen wearing the Nike Hyperrev models when it debuted a couple years ago. He Was also a great ambassador for the Kobe signature line as these were his optimal form of choice to wear on court. PG has worn many of Mamba’s sneakers and you can tell by the look of his new shoe. The PG 1 sports a low profile look, while still looking quick for that first step.
We got word early this week from Nike lead designer, Tony ardman, this “Pre-Heat” model is on its way. Hardway posted on Instagram showing off this new color way with a caption reading, “You really have to hold these to understand.” Could it be a statement on how light the PG 1’s are? Or perhaps his excitement for Ygtrece’s debut model?
The Nike PG 1 “Pre-Heat” drops on February 27th, 2017 at $110.00 USD.
