We’re only 4 weeks out from the end of the NBA regular season, so suffice it to say we’ve seen some of the hottest kicks of 2013-2014 on the court. Our friends over at Extra Mustard put together this list ranking the top 10 sneakers we’ve seen so far, to read that full post head on over HERE.
The shoe shown above… “King James’ Hyperposite-clad eleventh Nike shoe received something of a royal diss to start the season: he couldn’t get the shoe to fit. So while Nike tinkered, James made the LeBron X Elite and Zoom Soldier VII his favored on-court subjects. He has since revisited the jettisoned sneaker here and there, highlighted by the mint green and red “Christmas” edition for December 25th’s Heat road game against the Lakers.”
“The sneaker is Nike’s inaugural foray into constructing kicks with the weave-like Flyknit technology, which opens the door wide for myriad color mixes and coolness. While not having their namesake on the court hurt, all is not lost for the very tall, very colorful sneaker. Kobe got practice shots up in the Kobe 9 a couple weeks before his season-ender, and players like Amar’e Stoudemire, Andre Iguodala, J.R. Smith, and P.J. Tucker (who has worn the purple and gold Kobe 9 Elite) have given the shoe in-game exposure. Predictably, every colorway released thus far has sold out in an instant.”
