Sunday Sneaker Mash-Up

Since I’m lazy and don’t feel like doing three separate posts but I thought you all would like these little tidbits. I know I enjoyed them.

First and foremost, as you all know, The Emerald(or in this case Fresh Water) Nike Air Griffey Max II is one of my favorite shoes of all time. And on April 23rd they will be retroed 🙂

Here are the detailed pics of them.

Utter Beauty. Pics from NiceKicks

Next there’s a rumor that the ‘White Cement’ Air Jordan IV’s may be returning some time this year or next. These pics surface a little while ago showcasing a Jumpman on the heel as opposed to the Nike Air that was on the back of the OG’s and if you can’t put two and two together, that means that this pair is probably a sample for a future release. Here are some pics for you to fiend over.

And finally even though these kinda deserve their own post, this will suffice.

These are the ‘Sprite’ Nike LeBron 8 V2 Low. They resemble the ‘Entourage’s a little but they are distinct in their own right. No release info has been revealed yet.

My LeBron Rant.

Ok, by now you already heard the news. He’s going to the Heat. You mad?

I’m not

I mena how can you blame him? He gave that organization SEVEN years to put players around him and what did they offer him up? A washed up Shaq and a mediocre Antawn Jamison. Other than that, nothing. How long did they expect him to stay when it was obvious that he wasn’t going to win with the group that he had. And it wasn’t like he wasnt vocal about it, he voiced his opinion over and over again. He wanted a championship. Can they really be mad that he left? No. Are they appreciative for what he’s done for them? No.

The man single-handedly made Cleveland interesting, who cared before then? They weren’t even relevant before he arrived. Shit, I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know Cleveland HAD a basketball team before LeBron. And what do they do to show their appreciation? This

Burning his got damn jersey

(-_-)

Really??

I honestly lost A LOT of respect for Cleveland fans after that. It’s ok to be upset (don’t get me wrong) but don’t burn a man’s jersey. Thats like burning his entire legacy, because he doesn’t want to lose anymore? Cleveland. THIS IS YOUR OWN DOING. It’s a business and he wants to win Championships. Is that really that far fetched? I am sorely disappointed in Cleveland’s fanbase but you know who I’m MORE disappointed in?

Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert. He had this to say of his former franchise player.

Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE”

You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue….

Dan Gilbert
Majority Owner
Cleveland Cavaliers

Not only is that not Classy nor professional but its down right despicable. Your a grown man who can’t accept another grown man’s decision? What happened to “Congratulations, it was a pleasure playing with you”? Is that too much to ask for the player that saved your franchise from the brink of oblivion and raised millions of dollars in revenue for you?

Shit is disgusting.

All in all, I believe LeBron handled this great. He didn’t show too much emotion when they showed the clip of his jersey being burned nor did he speak any ill words about the city of Cleveland. Cleveland fans should be disappointed in themselves as well as Ms. Gilbert up there. Everyone in the state of Ohio that contributed to this fuckery should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

Cleveland owned LeBron’s CONTRACT not his soul so if he wanted to leave  they should have shown their appreciation for this sports star. Do you really believe that just because he was born there, he can’t leave?

Stop it now.

Nike Air Max LeBron VII P.S

Ok so by now I know you’ve seen the Nike Air Max LeBron VII by now, whether its on the court, on the commercials or in the stores.

But what you probably didn’t see (or at least I didn’t) is the Nike Air Max LeBron P.S

it seems like they took direct inspiration from the Concord XI’s but thats kool, why not take elements from a classic shoe? Thats been the main complaint of some people. Not me tho.

The overall shoe design is similar to the original VII but the sole is noticeably different, check out the comparison.

O, and the P.S stands for ‘post season’ if you were wondering cuz I kno i was.

the original VII

The P.S

And here’s the comparison of the P.S’ and Concord XI’s

Concord XI's

K I N G J A M E S !!

No disrespect to Dwayne Wade because he is one of the best players in the league

but LeBron did kinda dunk on him and a couple other Heat players

I do applaud Wade’s effort tho, I wouldnt jump wit tht nigga but hey I dnt get paid for it either

Think Pink

I’m an avid supporter of mostly anything that has anything to do with Breast Cancer because alot of my friends have had family members fall victim to the disease and I love Nike(undoubtedly). So when I first heard of the Think Pink/Box Out Breast Cancer Campaign, I was thrilled that Nike is actually doing something proactive and positive. They will be putting out shoes with Pink themes and some proceeds(not sure exactly how much) will go to Breast Cancer Research. There is a rumor that there might be a pair of pink Foamposites wandering around somewhere but who knows, this is a photoshop that BPtheOwner over at Niketalk.com did. if you see em let me kno bruh. These the pair of Air Max Lebron VII pe’s and the Nike Air Kobe IV’s.

LeBron Hits The Red Carpet

Yea, I’m bored and still up because at this point sleep is not gonnna do much for me anyway so I’m gonna stay up for a minute. But anyway the reason I’m posting this is because I am in love with this colorway of the Nike Air Zoom LebRon VII(NFW), officially dubbed the “Red Carpet” edition these beauties just recently released. I just might pick them up and keep them DS, who knows. But they are bound to be limited because they are “NFW” meaning they don’t have that o so sweet Flywire technology that Nike is pushing so hard. but anyway good luck finding them if you’re interested.

Good Lookin to Hypebeast.com for the info too
