Sneak(er) Peek: Kobe’s New Jawns, Adidas get UNDRCRWN’d & Eminem’s Jordans

Much kicks to get into, so here are some of the kids favs

and most interesting from the most recent crop of releases.

 

Kobe dropped his new shoes, the Nike Zoom Kobe IVs. These

sport a low profile and carriy over elements from the Nike Hyperdunks (i.e. Flywire) while

looking way better than his last signature pair that were on some “hi-tech if

Spider-Man played hoops” ish. At 11.6 ounces it’s the lightest Nike shoe

ever.  Kiddies, they drop Jan 1,

’09; Kobe, tape those ankles kid.

 

UNDRCRWN, a lifestyle brand based out of Philly—word to

Beans, the Roots, Gillie and all those dudes—has collaborated with adidas

Basketball for three imited edition pair of kicks called Team Signature Command

+ Create x UNDRCRWN: The Brand for Champions Series. That’s a lot, but the

kicks are easier to keep track of. All three shoes will retail for $125 and

will be at select outlets and of course www.undrcrwn.com.

TS Commander x UNDRCRWN: “it’s Christmas time, in Hollis,

Queens…”

 

Eminem dropped a collab with Brand Jordan (rhyming has its

perks, ya know). In this vid from Nicekicks.com he and designer Jason Mayden

offer insight on their creation. Only 313 pairs made and available at the

Jordan Brand website’s Flight Club.

 

 

 

These buttery hi-top take on Stan Smiths (first dropped in

’65 and rocked by the fashionable ever since) and Americanas (the official shoe

of the ABA, when the NBA wasn’t only game in town) are part of the adidas

Originals House Party campaign. You don’t have to go too far to find them since

they should be readily available at Foot Locker for about 70 to 80 beans,

respectively.
