Sneak(er) Peek: Kobes New Jawns, Adidas get UNDRCRWNd & Eminems 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 its the lightest Nike shoe
ever. Kiddies, they drop Jan 1,
09; Kobe, tape those ankles kid.
UNDRCRWN, a lifestyle brand based out of Phillyword to
Beans, the Roots, Gillie and all those dudeshas collaborated with adidas
Basketball for three imited edition pair of kicks called Team Signature Command
+ Create x UNDRCRWN: The Brand for Champions Series. Thats 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.

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 wasnt only game in town) are part of the adidas
Originals House Party campaign. You dont have to go too far to find them since
they should be readily available at Foot Locker for about 70 to 80 beans,
