Basketball Kicks - 2013

A lot has been going on in the world of basketball sneakers this year - and aside from a couple random posts here and there - I haven't addressed most of it. Nice Kicks did a great recap of the sneaks worn over all-star weekend, so if you've been missing your fix of basketball kicks, make sure and check that out.


*How perfect is it that Zach Randolph aka Z-Bo rocks the "Nike Air Max Hyperaggressor"? Did he even have to see the kicks, or was he sold once he heard the name?
*I know the shoe companies like to roll out the exclusives for ASW - but kudo's to Adidas for even getting Tim Duncan to rock neon shoes.
*Given that I don't like high-tops and definitely am not spending $250 for basketball shoes - the Jordan XX8 are not for me. But they sure have people talking.
*Dwayne Wade's Li-Nings aren't that bad.
*Think Nike is pissed that James Harden and Kyrie Irving were rocking last year's Hyperdunks?
*Kobe wins.
