Quality shoes, those Nikes. Kansas State was actually leading top-ranked Oklahoma until Wildcats forward D.J. Johnson had his shoe disintegrate in the middle of a play. It’s still close in the second half, but the Sooners hold a four-point lead.
Bruce Springsteen is on the road yet again, now playing The River in its entirety. That means he’ll be singing “Drive All Night.” I’ve seen it, and can report that it is, as it always has been, a really dumb song—the dumbest thing ever credited to Springsteen.
In the fourth quarter of their 114-108 loss to the Nuggets, Rockets wing Trevor Ariza lost his shoe. So Nuggets guard Will Barton did the only logical thing: he threw it away from Ariza.
Like many soul-searching 1990s adolescents, I was obsessed with Nike Air technology. I’d pore over the latest innovations, from visible forefoot air to tuned air to other types of air. I’d even buy used sneakers at the flea market and tear them apart to inspect the air. As my young brain developed and my understanding…
We ran a mile in your running shoe nominations and determined the top seven. Now it’s time to vote and see where the support is.
You should run, and you’re more likely to keep at it with better gear. You don’t need the most expensive running shoes on the shelf, but you should buy good ones. So tell us, which running shoes do your feet prefer?
Some would consider it as sacrilegious as when Coke dabbled with its classic formula back in the 80s, but after 98 years Converse has updated its iconic Chuck Taylor All-Stars. On the outside they look nearly identical, but on the inside the Chuck II is actually far more comfy for your feet.
Dragan Bender, a 17-year-old Croatian basketball star who could be a top pick in the NBA draft one day, left the Croatian national team and the FIBAU19 tournament at the end of June over a sneaker dispute between Jordan and adidas.
Under Armour doesn’t just make ugly shoes, they also come up with dumb slogans too.
This is going to come as a surprise to some of you gentlemen, but you cannot wear the same ratty running shoes to everything. It’s summer now, and you’re going to have to put at least a little bit of (warm and sunny) thought into your footwear.
Lance McCullers is on the mound making his major league debut tonight for the Astros, and he’s doing it in an especially odd choice of footwear: Batman cleats. We’re not sure if this will incur a fine from MLB, but we hope the 2012 first-rounder kept some of his $2.5m signing bonus just to be sure.
Ohio's ABC 13 brings us this report on a Jordan 11 release rescheduled to Saturday because of an unruly crowd on Wednesday. Paul Moses was the local news protagonist who bought the shoes at the Franklin Park mall that morning, and he applauded the police's approach on Saturday as being much better than Wednesday's.…
Via @cjzero, here's Lakers point guard Ronnie Price losing his shoe, turning over the ball, and throwing the shoe at Andre Iguodala in an attempt to play defense. The shoe throw didn't work, of course, and Price received a technical foul for his innovation.
Toronto FC's Bright Dike gave this a decent effort but MLS still requires that a valid goal must be scored with the game ball, not one's cleat. Bummer.
Tough break, kid, but if you have to choose one way to find out that your Yeezys are fake, hearing it from the mouth of Yeezus himself is probably the best-case scenario.
I'm not going to explain this one, because I have faith in you. But I will say that you have to listen to the whole thing, and follow along with the subtitles.
The Christmas Day games aren't just a blessed excuse to ignore your relatives; they're also one of the most high-profile stages of the year, meaning you get a faceful of custom Nikes on the court.
White cleats are usually a conservative choice on the pitch, so it took seeing this close-up before noticing that, like most things in his life, these too are testament to Mario Balotelli's own awesomeness.
Graham crackers and applesauce. That's all Michael Jordan wanted during an early-season game in Utah. The Bulls' trainer had his graham crackers, but applesauce was nowhere to be found.
