Back in 2004, Nike SB introduced a generation of sneakerheads to MEDICOM TOY – and its flagship BE@RBRICK figure — through a collaboration on the Dunk Low, done up in an appealing color scheme made up of white, college blue and orange shades. That same colorway is repeated on the latest collaboration between the two brands, though this time around the silhouette of choice is the Dunk Elite High, featuring a white mesh base with tonal suede overlays and a blue leather Swoosh. BE@RBRICK embroidery and an orange Nike SB pull loop on the Flyknit collar round out the details. Expect the kicks to drop sometime in May 2018.

Jordan Wings Program Hands Out Scholarships During Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” Block Party

This past weekend, in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jordan Brand threw a good old-fashioned block party. Partnering with local boutique, Sneaker Politics, the party helped launch the Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” to the community before its official release on May 12. But there was also a larger force at work: the Jordan Wings Program was awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors.

Teaming up with local New Orleans educational partners to reward students in need of funding to pursue a higher education, Jordan Wings continues to be a force for good in communities across the U.S. Each student also received a special PE pair of the “Katrina” 3s made to mirror the original 2003 on-court version worn by original Team Jordan athlete, Derek Anderson.

New Orleans, although 13 years removed from Hurricane Katrina, isn’t completely restored. Among other things, education reform in the city is of key importance to mayor Mitch Landrieu. And while the successful mayor hasn’t yet stated whether he will or won’t, many have him pinned to unseat President Trump in 2020 if he chooses to run on the Democratic ticket with his progressive policies.

Jordan Brand, to their credit, is an active part of the change in New Orleans. This block party, the scholarships it produced, the lives those scholarships are set to change, are proof of that.

Former adidas Employee Pleads Guilty in College Basketball Bribery Case

The 2017-18 NCAA Basketball was marked with controversy following the firing of Louisville coach Rick Pitino and the adidas brand’s involvement regarding payment to players in exchange for attending Three Stripe sponsored schools.

While other coaches and brands would also come under accusation — it’s not just adidas — the company made the news for the wrong reasons due to their ties to said investigation. They do again today as Thomas “T.J.” Gassnola — former director of adidas AAU program New England Playaz — pled guilty to federal wire fraud charges. In addition, he also agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in the government’s NCAA basketball bribery case.

“Prior to being charged, the defendant participated in numerous proffer sessions during which he has disclosed his criminal activities and those of others,” prosecutors said of Gassnola, as reported by SGB Online. “The government anticipates that grand jury subpoenas may be issued based on information provided by the defendant, and that information provided by the defendant may also be presented to a grand jury in this district for purposes of obtaining an indictment.”

Since the Louisville story first broke in the fall, adidas has launched an internal investigation regarding bribery and fraud within their company in connection to NCAA and AAU basketball. As alluded to before, it is very likely that other brands will come under fire for similar situations. The NCAA also faces potentially changing times as there is talk of changing the “1 and Done” culture that’s resulted from the NBA’s age limit.

Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updates on this case.

BRONX NEWS: Boyfriend found covered in blood, charged in Bronx slay: cops


It wasn’t difficult figuring out who killed a 31-year-old Bronx woman — her boyfriend was covered in blood, police sources said Monday.


Prince-Roy Mullings, 28, was charged Friday with the slaying of Kayon Williams, 31, inside his Williamsbridge home.


She died of sharp-force injuries to her neck, the Medical Examiner’s office said.


Police found three knives in the apartment they believe were used in the deadly attack, sources said.

Bronx man charged with murder in new girlfriend’s death


According to authorities, cops went to the apartment late Thursday to do a wellness check after a relative told cops that she hadn’t heard from Williams and Mullings wouldn’t put her on the phone.


When police got to Mullings’ apartment on Lurting Ave., a roommate let police in.


Mullings was in the bedroom with the body, sources said, and came out covered in blood.


He’s being held without bail.

Surprise Air Jordan 3s Are Releasing All Week for Tinker Hatfield’s Birthday

To honor Tinker Hatfield‘s 66th birthday and one of his most cherished creations, the Air Jordan 3, Nike has announced the “Week of 3s” which kicked off this morning.

Based on an original sketch of the 1988 produced silhouette, the Air Jordan 3 “Tinker” dropped this morning after releasing in limited supply earlier this year. Now, more limited edition Air Jordan 3s will release over the next five days.

Launching throughout the remainder of the week — May 1 through May 5 — limited Air Jordan 3s will release each day. Details surrounding which pairs will drop has not been disclosed, as it appears the releases each morning will be a surprise. It’s also worth noting that this initiative has only been announced on Nike SNEAKRS Europe. So there’s a chance this make not take place in the States. However, that just makes it harder to secure these pairs, not impossible. You’ll also need to be a SNEAKRS member to purchase.
