The Nike KD 9 "Game Royal" Keeps It Clean for the Warriors' Home Court
Previously coated in full Game Royal, this latest Nike KD 9 continues the colorway’s trend by incorporating white along its mid-foot and toe-box areas. This KD 9 version rests atop a white sole and midsole, and is complemented by visible Zoom Air Units for a functional addition. Its Flyknit upper serves as the model’s main attraction via a heel transition from Game Royal to white. You’ll also find a white Swoosh along both lateral and medial sides.
The Nike KD 9 in Game Royal/White is currently available at select retailers such as Sneaker Politics and online for a retail price of $150 USD.
adidas Originals Brings the "Triple Black" Treatment to the Superstar BOUNCE Primeknit
adidas didn’t wait long to bring its beloved Primeknit technology to the Superstar BOUNCE silhouette, following up the reveal of the modern shell-toed kicks with a knit version of the shoe just a day later. Originally dressed in all-white, the design is now making its way to shelves in a decidedly darker look, adopting the tried-and-true “Triple Black” motif. As you might expect, the design comes dressed entirely in black, from its Primeknit upper and rubber shell toe to its BOUNCE-cushioned midsole, lining, and laces.
Fans can pick up the all-”Core Black” colorway now from adi stockists like Afew.
Reebok Introduces a Shrouded Take on the Club C
Reebok kicked off its 30th anniversary celebration of the Club C back in January by linking up with Kendrick Lamar for an acid-washed denim version of the silhouette and now the sportswear giant is taking the low-top to new heights with its latest release: the Club C Shroud. Perhaps intended as a nod of sorts to the likes of Shawn Kemp’s old Reignman and Reignman 2 signatures, the design puts a premium spin on the court classic and couples a crinkled leather exterior with both front and back zippered enclosures, a padded mesh collar, and a matching mesh tongue.
Two colorways of the brand new design — which appears as a part of the 58 Bright St. collection alongside the likes of the Instapump Fury Boot — are slated to hit the likes of Reebok Japan this Saturday, February 11, for ￥22,680 JPY (approximately $203 USD).
2017 is undoubtedly the year of Equipment Support. Since the beginning of January, adidas Originals has been rolling out new variants under its “no bullshit” franchise such as the 93/17 silhouette alongside modern reworkings of the ADV and Ultra PK. This time around, the German sportswear brand is continuing its 26-year anniversary of the range with two iterations of the EQT Support RF: “Trace Green” and “Solid Grey.” The versatile runner boasts a leather/textile upper, the classic Trefoil insignia on the tongue and, of course, the Three Stripes logo on the side panels.
Take a look at both pairs above and expect a rollout in the coming weeks over at select adidas Originals stockists such as Afew.
