PJ Tucker Previews Chris Paul’s Air Jordan 11 ‘Bred’ PE



PJ Tucker Air Jordan 11 Bred PE Chris Paul

Earlier PJ Tucker shared an image on Instagram to showcase the Air Jordan 11 Bred PE along with the Air Jordan 6 Gatorade from Chris Paul. He also wore the Air Jordan 12 Q-Rich PE.

PJ Tucker shared the following with the image: “When your boy (Chris Paul) low key got the best Jordan game there is and his locker just so happens to be next to yours.”

This Air Jordan 11 features a very similar colorway to that of the iconic ‘Bred’ release, however there is a few small changes. As you can see they feature the original higher cut patent leather which is done in Black. Instead of a translucent Red outsole, we now have the shade used on the back heel.

As some of you may remember, the Air Jordan 11 Concord is rumored to return during 2018. There is also a rumor going around that the ‘Bred’ Air Jordan 11 will also return. None of the pairs have officially been confirmed and like mentioned, a rumor for now. Let us know if you would buy this pair or the original if Jordan Brand decides to release them.

My Unforgettable Experience with Nike Women and The Los Angeles Lakers

words & experience by Mayam Lillard:

It all started with an Instagram photo I uploaded wearing a predominantly Nike ‘fit with a satirical caption that tagged both @Nike and @NikeLosAngeles, asking them to call me…

Two weeks later, a friend of mine tagged me in a tweet that Ray Polanco Jr. of Nice Kicks had posted asking for recommendations of “stylish LA women.” Some DM’s and a day or so later I’m confirmed for an exclusive retail experience that I was promised to be something amazing.

A couple days after that, I found myself at the Century City Mall at the Nike Womens x Nordstrom sneaker boutique for what, in fact, would be an unforgettable experience I’ve been able to participate in…like, ever!

Mayam Lillard’s Unforgetable Experience with Nike Womens and the LA Lakers

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably felt a little discouraged with how “sneaker” culture is predominantly marketed towards men. There have been drops that I can’t cop due to the fact that I have ridiculously tiny feet and the smallest men’s size is usually a 6 – (roughly an 8 in women’s, I’m a Women’s 6.5) or the drops that are “women only” have lots and lots of bright colors that I really don’t want to wear. In everyone’s defense, the sneaker industry has been making strides to keep women in mind, but I still feel like it’s a little behind given that we’re in 2017. So, with that being said, can you imagine my excitement when I not only found out this boutique existed, but that I was getting the opportunity to participate? #Stoked.

The Nordstrom x Nike sneaker boutique is an exclusive endeavor between the two retail giants that is meant to bring the ultimate sneaker experience…FOR WOMEN! Yes, you heard me. The entire thing was designed and executed entirely for the ladies.

So the boutique is located conveniently front and center as you walk into Nordstrom from the Constellation Blvd side entrance – considered “level 1” according to the Westfield Center Map. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by the amazing team at Nike x Nordstrom and surprised with a pair of exclusive Nike SF Air Force 1- Mid Los Angeles that I completely fell in love with the second I had them on my feet. This specific style was ONLY available at the Nordstrom x Nike Century City.

That wasn’t the only surprise…

From there, Nike presented me an opportunity pick out any NBA jersey available to customize into my own. The jerseys available were Los Angeles Clippers (Blake Griffin), Los Angeles Lakers (Brandon Ingram), and Golden State Warriors (Steph Curry). Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware of the complete Nike taking over the NBA jerseys again. The customization station had a seamstress and tailor on hand to add a variety of patches of my choice as well as alter the cut of my jersey in a handful of specific styles. The patches all encouraged strength in femininity and the cuts catered flattering to the modern streetwear gal.

I chose the Lakeshow Brandon Ingram jersey and customized mine by adding two super cute patches and cutting it in the “high neck” option. This basically cut off some of the sides for more of a “feminine” look.  I got a large jersey and chose to rock it as a dress. Shout out to Mya.

Overall, my experience was an amazing one. Nice Kicks, Nordstrom and Nike really came together to have me part of a perfectly curated area for the stylish and sporty woman. It has always been a dream to be able to collaborate with a brand that has been with me since I was a kid. All throughout my childhood and into adulthood I’ve used Nike products for both function and fashion. From the 2002 Nike Mercurial Vapor soccer cleats to my new SF Air Force 1 Mid – LA’s the brand has kept me and continues to keep me going.

I guess I should tell Nike to call me more often

Supreme Week 14 // Bangers, Sleepers & Duds

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves. This is Bangers, Sleepers & Duds, the weekly Supreme review where we take either the collaboration of the week (which have been plentiful this season) or lookbook items and put them under the microscope to discover whether the piece is worthy of praise or criticism. “Bangers” is not a section for the most hyped item or what will have the greatest resale value, but rather a place for the best-executed pieces of the week. The “Sleepers” segment features pieces with a great aesthetic appeal that we predict to be an easy purchase by Supreme standards. While most Supreme items sell out in seconds or minutes we don’t believe that this is always warranted, thus, the “Duds” section is for all the pieces that don’t justify your stress or skrilla. This is an opinion article, so take it all with a grain of salt.

For all of those not new to the wave, my apologies for the one-week hiatus, but the most hyped item last week was a thermos and the Independent collab was just aight.

As for this week… info is a little scarce as of now due to the drop occurring Friday because of Thanksgiving. Supreme’s main collaboration this week is with Timberland. The Timberland collaboration has become a staple for the Fall/Winter season but we haven’t received the classic 6″ Premium Waterproof Boot since the Comme Des Garcons collab in F/W 2015. Aside from the Timbs, the only other item rumored to drop this week is the lookbook collab from Vanson Leathers.

Check back for updates as more info becomes available but until then…

Let’s Get It!

Bangers

A black boot is an essential item for any wardrobe and arguably no one provides a more iconic or well-constructed boot than Timberland. This tonal black colorway from the Supreme collaboration adds a subtle patriotic pattern to the winter ready boot by mixing a matte and gloss finish on the premium waterproof nubuck. Combining the durability and functionality of Timberland with the design and prestige of Supreme makes this boot a heavy hitter for the winter months and a no-brainer if you don’t already have a black boot.

Sleepers

If you live in areas where winters are really rough then you know that having a solid glove can be the difference between cozy boy status and complete frustration. Keeping it with the “Made in the USA” theme that Supreme has this week, they have teamed up with Vanson Leathers. Vanson is a Massachusetts based company known for their motorcycle racing leathers. These gloves in particular feature Vanson’s signature bone design and are handmade in their Massachusetts factories. While the rest of the Supreme x Vanson collaboration is made from competition weight (we can assume that means lightweight) cowhide leather, Supreme does not specify what these are constructed of in their FW17 preview. Either way, you can rest assured that these gloves will keep your digits warm while giving your winter fits a badass biker vibe.

Duds

While the black colorway was a winter essential, this red, tan*, and blue colorway takes it a bit to far into Uncle Billy Bob’s dairy farm. Timbs are famous for being a boot that you can throw on with some sweats and trudge through the snow around the block to your local bodega in, but the multicolor design used on this specific boot completely kills that steeze. Matching isn’t as necessary or prevalent in today’s culture, but if you aren’t wearing blue or red with these then it’s going to be quiet for you. Shouts out my girl Bella Hadid. If you’re a Timberland collector and you have a plethora of boots then, by all means, add these to your collection. But if you are looking for a solid everyday winter boot then refer to the Bangers section. It would have been fire if Supreme did 4 tonal colorways of red, blue, tan, and black that all featured the stars and stripe design as the black pair does… but they didn’t. Holler at me Mr. Jebbia.

How to Cop

This week’s drop is just slightly different than the rest. The drop will be on Friday, November 24th in Europe, the States and Online, not Thursday due to Thanksgiving but at the same bat time of 11 am ET. With the Japanese drop still occurring on Saturday, November 25th.

Interview // Kyle Kuzma on Coney Dogs, Fashion Inspiration and Wearing Heat On-Court

words, photos & interview // Ray Polanco Jr.:

The most exciting Los Angeles Lakers rookie so far this season on the court is not named Lonzo Ball. His name is Kyle Kuzma.

Standing at 6’7″ and hailing from Flint, Michigan, he can pretty much do everything on the court, and is currently enjoying a smooth transition to a pro game perfectly suited for his positionless skillset. After quickly becoming a household name during Summer League, Kuzma is crushing expectations both on the court and off the court with fans.

The young budding star recently took time out to personally sign as many autographs as possible during an in-store meet & greet at the grand opening of basketball-inspired streetwear shop Dunk Contest LA. With lines wrapping around the block, there’s no questioning Kyle Kuzma’s impact on Lakers fans.

Read ahead as Nice Kicks caught up with the Lakers forward to discuss fashion, favorite kicks on court, and things his misses about his hometown below.

Ray Polanco Jr.: I’d say you and Jordan Clarkson are probably two of the most swaggiest guys on the team off the court. With that said, what blogs do you read to catch up on fashion or where do you go to discover different clothes you’d want to wear?

Kyle Kuzma: I check out UpscaleHype.com, that’s cool for a lot of fashion stuff. I also mess with Pinterest a lot. I wear what I like, so I just browse around until something catches my eye.

RP: I’ve never thought about checking Pinterest for fashion. Are they lowkey putting you on game to fresh stuff?

Kyle Kuzma: You gotta try it! Just type in “mens fashion” — they have some dope stuff.

RP:  No lie, I’m definitely going to see what’s up. Transitioning from off-court to on-court, you might be familiar with our series Kicks On Court. Nick Young, a former Laker, set the bar high for the squad and it’s up to the new class to carry the torch. If you could wear a pair of sneakers to hoop that’s considered heat, what would that be?

Kyle Kuzma: Any type of Air Jordan, honestly. I wish I could wear Jordans to hoop. I’m signed with Nike, but I love how Jordan 11’s feel on court, and my second pick would be Jordan 7’s.


Kyle Kuzma wearing Nike Kobe AD Mid “Joker” Custom

RP: I always try to include the Nice Kicks readers in our interviews and allow them to submit a question to be asked. This one comes from @AhadKaaan: If you could get your own PE of any Nike sneaker, what would that be?

Kyle Kuzma: Definitely one of the Kobe’s. I used to wear Under Armour at Utah and couldn’t wait to hit the NBA to switch into Kobe’s.

RP: Dope! He recently became a mentor of yours, so I’m sure that’s a surreal feeling. As a new Los Angeles resident myself, specifically from the Bronx, New York, there are things I miss from home that I wish was here with me in LA, although I love my new home. What are some things from Flint, Michigan you miss?

Kyle Kuzma: FOOD! Michigan is really big on Coney Dogs, I love those. Faygo Pop too… but I try to stay away from that now.

RP: What about Better Made Honey BBQ potato chips? Those are fire.

Kyle Kuzma: Yeah, yeah! Those are big time, ha.


The Lakers Rookie is pulling in lines around the block and averaging nearly 17 points and 7 rebounds per game. Take a glance below as Nice Kicks brings you inside Kyle Kuzma’s autograph signing at the Dunk Contest LA shop, where exclusive merch and posters were available for a limited amount of time.

1 ON 1 // Rookie De’Aaron Fox Talks Nike Deal, Jersey Style & Favorite Kobes

words & interview // Nick DePaula
producer // Ray Polanco Jr.

WATCH INTERVIEW ON YOUTUBE

As De’Aaron Fox rose from a hotel lobby chair in mid September for an introductory handshake, there’s an immediate bounce to his step and a presence to his 19 year-old smile. Unlike most rookies working their way through a series of summer-long interviews about their leap to the pro level, Fox is eager and beaming.

That could also be because the noted gamer was discussing his just-revealed NBA 2K rating with a friend. He’s been playing the video game series since the fourth grade, and even credits the “pro mode” for shaping his real life court vision on the hardwood.

“97 for Speed!” said Fox. “Third fastest – only behind John Wall and Westbrook — not bad!”

While all rookies will have to eventually improve their overall rating in the game through the course of a season, it’s that speed and court vision of Fox’s that also made him such a coveted prospect entering this summer’s NBA Draft, where he was selected fifth overall by the Sacramento Kings.

At a lean 6’4″, Fox is a relatively relatable size for kids watching, but he’s also able to finish at the rim, exploding into the lane for his trademark lefty tomahawks. His game on the court, along with his noted sharpness and excitement for marketing, is exactly the mix of skills, personality and potential that the athletic and entertainment industry’s biggest brands are looking for in endorsers, every single draft.

With adidas, Nike and Under Armour all heavily courting Fox throughout the spring, we caught up with De’Aaron to hear all about the process of signing one of the biggest shoe deals of the rookie class. The 5-year pact with Nike will feature him in Kings jersey promos throughout the season thanks to the brand’s new uniform rights deal, and you can also look for De’Aaron to break out a variety of custom Kobe models in team hues and special themes.

Check out our 1 ON 1 with De’Aaron Fox below, and be sure to subscribe to Nice Kicks TV on YouTube.

My 5 // De’Aaron Fox’s Sneaker Rotation

words & interview // Nick DePaula:

For Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox, his love for sneakers started at an early age.

“My brother is actually a huge sneakerhead, like, he needs to tone it down,” laughs Fox. “He’s the one that got me into shoes. My brother and I wear the same size now.”

While at Kentucky, that meant borrowing from the 25 year-old Quentin’s rotation of sneakers. Once De’Aaron wrapped up his 1st team All-SEC season, a 32-6 run for for the Wildcats that carried them to the Elite 8, Fox instantly found himself sorting through endorsement deal offers from all of the brands he’d grown up following.


“When I was younger, we saw Nike, adidas, Under Armour and when Reebok had a basketball side,” he continues. “For those brands to be coming at me and talking to me about what they were going to do in terms of commercials, it was just a blessing. I grew up wearing all of their shoes and paying for them, and at the end of the day, they wanted to pay me to wear their shoes.”

After hearing strong presentations and pitches from both adidas and Under Armour, De’Aaron decided to land with Nike, where he felt most comfortable on court. When he’s not training relentlessly as he navigates through his rookie season, Fox is typically kicking around a variety of casual kicks with a combination of warmup gear and hoodies. He hasn’t dipped into designer kicks or hunted down any retro Jordans just yet for off the court, saying he’s typically on the go to and from the gym.

Nice Kicks recently caught up with the future of the Kings franchise to hear all about what’s in his rotation. Check out all of De’Aaron’s favorite kicks to wear in the latest edition of My 5.

 

Air Presto

Fox: “Definitely including the Presto – that’s #1 on my list right now. I’m trying to get them in every color. I’m also trying to customize them, so I’m looking to do an all white, all black, all green and all pink. All of that!”

 

VaporMax


Fox: “The newest Air Maxes, just because I wear a lot of things with no socks, like the Prestos.”

 

Kobe AD


Fox: “I’ve been wearing those a lot. I wore those during my pre-Draft stuff when I was working out. My brother is going to handle some NIKEiDs actually. There was a purple pair that I saw Buddy [Hield] with, and that’s a pair that I’m definitely going to get too.”

 

Sock Dart


Fox: “Those are so comfortable! Every time I walk into the locker room with them, me and Justin [Jackson] are right next to eachother, and he’s like, ‘Man, stop trying to copy me!’ He wears them like every single day. If you drop something on ’em, you’re gonna feel it! [laughs] There’s no protection on the top of them.”

 

Kobe NXT


Fox: “I’ve been dressing real comfortable, and I haven’t really been wearing Js like that. I haven’t been doing nothin’ — it’s just been to the gym and home. [laughs] The other Kobes, the NXTs, I’ve been working out in those a lot too. I have them in all grey and also the volt green ones.”

DeMar DeRozan Will Wear the Nike Kobe AD ‘White Gum’ Tonight in New York



DeMar DeRozan Nike Kobe AD White Gum

Responding to a call from DeRozan on Twitter, Dell Treasure, 28 of Layton, Utah, went to Nike iD and created “a nice, clean sneaker that would work on a lot of different levels.”

One level, off the bat, earned a positive reaction from the Raptors guard, who chose the design from the many that were submitted and will wear it tonight in New York.

“MSG is the last old-school arena in the NBA. It’s a throwback to a time where the game was the only thing that mattered, so I wanted to choose a fan design that was simple and reflective of that,” he says.

DeMar DeRozan will wear this Nike Kobe AD tonight at 7:30 PM EST while the Toronto Raptors take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Check out more images below which will give you a closer look.
