LeBron's New Shoe Refers To Him As A Two-Time Champion

This here is a picture of the sockliner of the new LeBron X shoe, which boasts a fancy floral colorway. It's kind of weird that it says "2-time champion" because, you know, LeBron is just a one-time champion right now, and he will continue to be one for the foreseeable future if the Heat lose to the Spurs tonight. » 6/18/13 12:46pm 6/18/13 12:46pm

Nate Robinson Wore Nike Air Yeezy 2s In An NBA Game, For Some Reason

There are a few things that are bizarre about Nate Robinson's decision to wear Air Yeezy 2s during last night's Bulls-Spurs game. For one, those shoes are ridiculously expensive. Although they retail at $250, the demand for the shoes has become so high that they routinely fetch prices upwards of $2,000 on eBay and … » 3/07/13 11:35am 3/07/13 11:35am

The New Air Jordans Look Super Dumb

Today, Nike unveiled its latest iteration of the Air Jordans. Those are the Air Jordan XX8s you see in the photo, and holy hell do they look stupid. Are you supposed to wear them with that weird outer casing zipped up or zipped down? Can you pull the real shoe out of the jacket thing and not have to look like a total… » 12/03/12 5:50pm 12/03/12 5:50pm

Skechers Will Pay $40M To Settle A Lawsuit About Its Goofy-Looking…

Look at that ugly, ugly shoe. It's a white Skechers Shape-Up. Scocca wrote in February that Nike's Galaxy Foamposites were the ugliest shoes ever, but we'll have to disagree on this one. These shoes grace an aesthetic level that Phil Knight can only dream about. » 5/16/12 11:50am 5/16/12 11:50am

Did Derrick Rose's Shoes Cause His Knee Injury?

Today, Chicago froths at a Nike shoe designer, Jason Petrie, who tweeted on Saturday that Derrick Rose should have signed with Nike, like LeBron did. LeBron, wrote Petrie, was only getting stronger, while Rose, thanks to his high-top adiZero Rose 2.5's, was toast, with a torn ACL. » 4/30/12 3:30pm 4/30/12 3:30pm

Babies Left In Cars, Shots Fired, Doors Broken Down: Just Another Air…

Nike re-released the Air Jordan XIs early this morning, which led to mini riots, gun shots, babies trapped in cars, and lots of blown paychecks (they run about $180 retail). But it wouldn't be a Jordan sneaker release day without a wash of mall crime across the country, would it? Here's a roundup of today's… » 12/23/11 2:00pm 12/23/11 2:00pm
