Interview // Romeo Langford Talks Hooping in Hardens at adidas Uprising

Question: What do you do when you’ve got Duke, Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana all looking to sign you? Question 2: More importantly, though, what do you wear?

For Romeo Langord, the 6’5 smooth swingman from Indiana, both answers are obvious. Showing out at adidas Uprising, the Class of 2018 standout led the 22 Vision squad in a close game against SC Supreme who happen to have Zion Williamson. He did so in the adidas Harden Vol 1. Why? “It’s the best shoe out right now,” Romeo says confidently.

Talking Hardens and hooping at a high level, check out our quick convo with Romeo below.

Nice Kicks: What went into picking the Hardens for this big stage?

Romeo Langford: I’ve been playing with these for a while now and they match my team colors.

Nice Kicks: What other shoes are in your rotation these days?

Romeo Langford: Just some more Hardens. [Laughs] It’s the best shoe out right now.

Romeo Langford: A lot of Ultra Boost and I just copped a new pair of Yeezys.

Nice Kicks: Before a tournament like this, what music are you listening to?

Romeo Langford: I really don’t listen to too much music. [Laughs]

Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo // Release Date

The World Famous Supreme lives up to its international billing with an official release date for the highly anticipated Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo. Also known as the “Suptempo,” this heavyweight collab takes the 1996 basketball silhouette worn on court by Scottie Pippen and flips the script on the tech tagging by instead calling out the New York born skate and streetwear label.

Based in black, red and gold colorways, each pair features full-length visible Air Max cushioning just like the OG hardwood model and also sees 3M accents around the bubble letters — an intricacy seen on the retro run of the More Uptempo circa ’06.

Save your camping gear as the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo will release online only in the US and Europe on April 27th. The following day, the shoe will launch online and in store in Japan. Good luck!

BRONX NEWS: 2 cops, detective and NYPD crossing guard cuffed over weekend


Two cops, a detective and a school crossing guard were arrested over the weekend in separate incidents, police said Sunday.


Cops collared an NYPD police officer who caused a serious accident while driving drunk on the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens Sunday morning, officials said. Neville Smith, 32, struck a 2004 Honda — which was carrying three people — from behind, causing the Honda to crash into a pole and a tree. The driver and one of the passengers went to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in critical condition, police said.


Smith, who was treated at the same site, was charged with vehicular assault, assault, driving while intoxicated and refusal to take a Breathalyzer test.


Cops in the Bronx arrested an off-duty police officer whose friend claimed she punched her in the face, officials said. Candice Smith, 31, a neighborhood coordination officer on the force since 2008, was charged with misdemeanor assault. The friend was not seriously injured, authorities said.

N.J. cop allegedly had sex with 2 teens, gave them booze, pills


A few hours later, also in the Bronx, cops cuffed an off-duty detective for drunken driving, police said. Efrain Medina, 51, was driving near Walton Ave. and E. Fordham Road in Fordham Heights when he got into an accident just before midnight. He took a Breathalyzer test and was arrested on the spot, cops said.


Police in Staten Island arrested an NYPD School Crossing Guard who allegedly punched her nephew, officials said. Katherine Gabel, 55, was charged with misdemeanor assault after her nephew, 47, claimed she punched him in the face and left shoulder, where he’d recently had surgery. He was in pain but not seriously injured, cops said.

Once they were within a block of the destination the attacker put the sharp weapon to the driver’s neck and demanded cash, which the terrified driver handed over, cops said. The thief also grabbed the victim’s cell phone from the center console before getting out of the car.

BRONX NEWS: 3-month-old boy dies in Bronx


A 3-month-old baby boy died after being found unconscious at a Bronx apartment, cops said on Sunday.


Little Mark Ruane was unresponsive after his mother called 911 around 11:30 p.m. Saturday from their home along Ogden Ave. near 166th St. in High Bridge, according to police.


First responders rushed the baby to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, but he did not survive.


The medical examiner did not immediately determine a cause of death.

Embattled NYC children’s services agency’s caseloads on the rise


The child’s parents were identified as Mark Ruane and Alexondra Ambrocini in court documents lodged against the city’s embattled Administration for Children’s Services.


The father claims that social workers Keisha Foster and Melissa McKenzie falsified a case against the couple in 2015. The investigation ultimately led to the agency taking another child out of his custody for nine months, he wrote in court documents filed in the U.S. Southern District of New York.


ACS responded to Ruane’s complaint in March and said its employees ordered “an emergency removal” of the couple’s newborn child, Emerald, due to alleged drug use.


The baby was taken from Metropolitan Hospital Center shortly after birth on Feb. 27, 2015, documents state.

NYC baby dies after baby-sitter finds him unconscious in stroller


The agency alleges the mother tested positive for cocaine the day before giving birth, based on a tip that Ruane disputes. He tested positive for methadone.


Family court documents show Ruane was undergoing methadone treatment in April 2016 while the child’s mother was seeking mental health help.


Ruane frequently expressed frustrations with the agency on Facebook, at one point sharing a meme comparing Child Protection Services workers to horror villain Freddy Kreuger.


Additionally, Ruane listed himself as a former public liaison for Truth Exposed, a Facebook page that hails itself as a support group for families “facing the unjust system of Child Protective Services and Family Courts.”


Despite his grievances, he wrote an alarming Facebook post a month before little Mark’s death, suggesting he would consider calling child protective services on his wife.


“I hate CPS,” Ruane wrote on March 27. “I don’t wanna call them but she won’t communicate and assure me my kids are safe after I read an email from her mom to her dad saying she almost killed my two month old.”


Days earlier, he penned a note asking for a new court date, claiming complications due to moving and a break-up.


“My co-plaintiff and I are no longer together and I am in the process of moving my things out of the apartment,” he wrote.


Ruane’s Facebook page chronicles apparent sobriety milestones and often states that he misses his children. He said he was looking forward to seeing them and his partner in mid-April.


A building superintendent told the Daily News he recalled seeing Ruane and the child’s mother pushing a stroller on Friday.
