Curry 3 TTS

Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors are sitting atop the NBA Western Conference just like they did for all of last season. The powerhouse combination of The Splash Brothers combined with KD and Draymond Green have become a problem for just about every team that matches up against them and it doesn’t look like things will change anytime soon. While Curry sits at the top of the West, Under Armour keeps pumping out sneakers that keep the two-time MVP looking fresh each night. Like most of the UA Curry 1’s and Curry 2’s the colorways that they bring out all have a meaning and tie in to different aspects of his life.

This pair ties back to Curry’s college days when he played at Davidson. Curry’s alma mater has since become a UA sponsored school. The perks of staying in touch with Steph Curry 🤔 . This sneaker features a vibrant red upper with contrasting black carbon fiber accents, and a nice touch of grey on the midsole to compliment the whole colorway. Hit the court or the streets with these Curry 3’s and you’ll have people thinking you’re playing on the Davidson basketball team.

Pick up your pair of the Under Armour Curry 3 ‘TCC’ on December 10th at Finishline.com.

Who would have thought, in 1996 Warner Brothers would release one of the highest grossing basketball movies of all time and would later play a pivotal role in the sneaker community. Space Jam was based around Michael Jordan’s retirement. It was a point in time when it felt like there was a “hole” in the game of basketball because of Jordan’s absence. Not only was the city of Chicago hurt, but the entire world felt this one. Some people couldn’t even watch the sport anymore.

Even though Mike left the game, Nike made sure his sneakers didn’t. To fill the void of basketball, Nike continued to release Jordan sneakers. They went on to release Jordan’s 9th and 10th signature shoe. They dropped in multiple colorways and they continued to do extremely well in sales for the next year and a half. I guess if we couldn’t see him play the game, at least we could go cop the kicks so we could “be like mike”.

Jordan returned to the Bulls in March, 1995. In April, Nike released the Air Jordan 11, a sleek silhouette built for only the best of the best. These kicks feature a red translucent outsole to deliver a better grip ratio than a standard rubber outsole. Between the outsole and pylon mid-sole, there’s a carbon fiber plate to give the sneaker its strength and stability. Carbon fiber is said to be one of the strongest materials on earth. The upper consists of cordura nylon, which is extremely flexible and durable. This material allows the shoe to take shape of one’s foot. The upper is completely wrapped in premium patent leather to give the shoe a “new car shine”. The Air Jordan 11 is lighter than any other Air Jordan model ever created. The elite design and materials made this sneaker one of the best performance shoes of all time.

Although Mike played in the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” in the film, that shoe never released to the public until Wednesday December 13, 2000. “A Wednesday? Aren’t limited retros usually released on Saturdays?” These are all questions we may be asking ourselves. But yes, surprisingly, Mikes were sold on weekdays before Jordan pushed dates to Saturday so kids in school wouldn’t cut class for sneakers. This winter, Jordan brand gives us a more recent version of the PE sample model that was created for Jordan to wear in 1995 when he returned to the Bulls. This pair featured a “45″ on the heel, higher cut patent leather with raw edges, and a concord jump-man. This upcoming model is a recreation of the pair Nike actually made for Mike to wear for his return to the 1995 playoffs. This is NOT to be confused with the Jordan sneakers shown in the movie, which featured a varsity royal blue jump-man and the lower patent leather cut we are accustomed to seeing on recent Air Jordan 11 models.

With that being said, will you be looking forward to copping the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” on December 10th at finishline.com?

While the Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’ was the highlight sneaker of the film, I took the time to put together a list of other heat that many people may have failed to notice while watching the movie.

1. Air Jordan 9 “cleats”: While Mike is up at bat. He rocks these.

2. Nike Air Max Triax Extra: After the baseball game, he wears these at home around the family

3. Air Jordan 10 “Shadow”: Look for these in the trophy room when Bugs Bunny goes to Mike’s home to grab his hooping gear.

4. Air Jordan 9: The shoes that he never played a NBA game in, but he practiced in and flew through the gym in the movie, *Music playing: Seal- Fly Like an Eagle

5. Biscuits: The shoes The Monstars got gamed in…Maybe if they had official kicks they wouldn’t have blown a 48pt lead, the worst upset since Shooter Mcgavin blew a 4 stroke lead to Happy Gilmore, smh, but that’s another story.

6. Nike Air Structure Triax: aka the Publicists. Worn by Mikes publicist, Stan while he’s on the bench.

7. Air Jordan 2: Bill Murray, comes to save the day against the Monstars in these boys, they look clean too.

8. Nike Air Way Up, Ewing Empire High, Nike Air CB34, Reebok Swing Mid, Converse Areo Mid: All spotted in a quick scene in the gym, where the hoopers are discussing how trash they are, and trying to figure out what happened.

Thanksgiving has given us a lot to be thankful for, unless you’re a Cleveland fan, then it’s just another Sunday. Josh McCown completed a 41 yard bomb to Terrell Pryor from his own five and on the very next play threw a pick-six to a one handed JPP. If that isn’t the Cleveland season summed up in two plays, I don’t know what is. The Cowboys dominated on Thanksgiving again, Antonio Brown danced his way to the end zone three times against the Colts and the Lions snuck through on a last second field goal. I don’t know how hard centers snap the ball, but after looking at Derek Carr’s finger it looks like he caught that ball being shot out of a cannon. Buckle those belts back up, wake up from your turkey coma and get ready for the playoff push, Week 13 is almost here.

32.     15578552015        Cleveland Browns

Record: 0-12
Last Week: 32

Once again, Cleveland can’t catch a break. The game was close until the Browns forgot about Odell, which you can’t do and still hope to win. JPP showed kids everywhere that just because you blow your hand off in a freak fireworks accident doesn’t mean you can’t score against the Browns. JPP is officially the only player to score a touchdown in the NFL with less than 10 fingers, but I’m sure Cleveland fans were only showing him one.

31.     17994552009        San Francisco 49ers

Record: 1-10
Last Week: 31

The 49ers’ season has had a lots of downs and very few ups, but on the bright side they were able to break a franchise record this week. They have now lost 10 straight games for the first time in franchise history. Kap did not have a terrible game, in fact it was by far the best game he had played this season.

30.     364        Chicago Bears    

Record: 2-9
Last Week: 30

Things have not been right in Chicago for a while now. Dropped passes were the highlight, including a drop to win the game with time dwindling in the 4th. Matt Barkley did not look bad at all, if only he had some skill position players to back him up. John Fox must be kicking himself right now, he went from a mediocre quarterback with great receivers in Denver to straight mediocrity all around in Chicago.

29.  15988562013        Jacksonville Jaguars

Record: 2-9
Last Week: 29

In the past few seasons, the Jaguars have had no luck. On paper, Blake Bortles was supposed to be the answer for the offensive deficiency. This team has all the pieces of the puzzle, they just can’t put it together.

28.  v7tehkwthrwefgounvi7znf5k       New York Jets

Record: 3-8
Last Week: 28


Things need to turn around in New York if this team wants to have any success in the future. Yes, this team has faced injuries this year, but it’s not nearly as bad as some other teams in the league. The QB situation in New York is still up in the air for the future and with Brandon Marshall on his last leg they might need to look at other options offensively going forward.

27.     f1wggq2k8ql88fe33jzhw641u        Carolina Panthers

Record: 4-7
Last Week: 26

Down 24-7 at half, the Panthers decided to make this one a little bit of a game in the 2nd half before ultimately coming up short. Greg Olson dropped a pass that was a centimeter too high and a strip sack by Kahlil Mack ended the game before Carolina could reach into Riverboat Ron’s bag of tricks.

26.     594153172016       Los Angeles Rams

Record: 4-7
Last Week: 25

Jared Goff is the lone bright spot in a otherwise dark, dark, dark game by the Rams. The Jeff Fisher era has not turned out the way any Rams fan (either in St.Louis or LA) wanted. The Rams allowed a total of 50 points in the previous 4 games before this week when the Saints put up 49. The Saints have a high powered throw-first offense, but the defense performed sub-par.

25.     403        Cincinnati Bengals

Record: 3-7-1
Last Week: 24

Without AJ Green this Bengals season is over. It was going to be tough to make the playoffs even with Green, but now that their #1 receiver is gone, it is darn near impossible. Andy Dalton put up just a measly 5 yards per attempt this week, so the whole team has got to be reminiscing about last year when they finished 12-4.

The much anticipated release of James Hardens first signature shoe is finally here. After taking the sneakerworld by storm a year ago by signing with adidas, everyone has been eagerly awaiting the superstars first shoe. Harden signed a thirteen year deal with adidas that locked down another superstar under the three-stripes regime. By now you’ve heard about the epic unveiling party that adidas and Harden held in Houston with some of the biggest names in rap and sneaker culture and they debuted the shoe in a way that people would never forget. The epic debut left sneakerheads craving a pair of the newly designed shoe that Harden would rock on the hardwood this season.

While Harden had exclusive colorways of signature adidas basketball shoes, none of them were exclusive to him as a signature. While the Harden 1 is a court sneaker, it comes with the casual appeal that most sneakerheads look for in sneakers. The versatility of the sneaker makes it perfect for hitting the court to drop thirty points or just kickin’ it with your homies and being casual. This sneaker features full-length boost that everyone loves and is perfect cushioning for court action. The ‘Pioneer’ colorway is made up of white, black and red and is inspired by Harden winning his second-straight California state title at his high school, the Artesia Pioneers. Mix up your style and throw in the adidas Harden Vol. 1 and have people noticing your look.

Pick up the adidas Harden Vol. 1 ‘Pioneer’ on December 3rd at Finishline.com.

Nike BP JCD 2

There’s nothing better than top sneaker styles and a story to go along with it. We know the Nike Beautiful X Powerful Collection stems from the story of Joan Benoit Samuelson, an American marathon runner breaking records and putting women athletes on the map. First we saw the creation of all black premium leather designs, but now we’re setting our eyes on Jacquard. 

Nike BP JCD 1

Coming in all of the styles we saw in the first wave of Beautiful X Powerful, the Jacquard designs boast color and flavor. The all black was nice, since you can never go wrong with a classic colorway, but it’s time to add some more style to your step ;). Displaying a speed-stripe, Jacquard-woven material that is inspired by the winning lap of Samuelson’s race, how could you not be a little tempted to slip one of these styles on?

If you’re pockets aren’t hurting yet then they will for sure during the month of December. By now you’ve seen Jordan Brand’s holiday line up and they didn’t hold back on bringing out some major must-haves for every sneaker lover. If you look at the release calendar for December, you’ll notice that most Saturdays and even weekdays have a sneaker dropping, so plan accordingly. If it turns out that you can’t buy gifts for people then thats the sacrifice you gotta make to keep your rotation look dope.

302370_112_E_PREM

This classic retro is done up in the classic ‘Bulls’ colorway with a primarily white upper that is complimented by black and red accents. You may remember that this was MJ’s first retirement sneaker from when he left the NBA to pursue a baseball career. We all know how that turned out.

Cop your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 9 ‘White/True Red’ on December 3rd at Finishline.com.
