From NiceKicks……

Air Jordan

The comment section went ablaze, with both positive and negative comments, when we showed you a photo of the Air Jordan 1 Retro “Foamposite” sample yesterday. However, there was a few more samples and much more exclusive information revealed at A Night With Jordan Brand.

Jordan Brand Designer Jason Mayden unveiled a rare Air Jordan hybrid sample that is available in a auction (proceeds will go to a charity for the Haiti relief fund). This particular rare sample, which features an Air Jordan X upper fused with an Air Jordan XX sole, was created to test the cushioning system for Chris Paul’s latest signature sneaker, the Jordan CP3.III.  According to Mayden, only six of these were designed, yet this particular pair is only one left. What are your thoughts on this sample? Click here to view additional photos of this shoe and view of video of Mayden discussing the sneaker and other Jordan Brand happenings.

Lebron PlayStation Kicks………

In honor of his sixth appearance at the NBA All-Star game, Lebron James was given the sneakers every gamer and sneakerphile in America would exchange their first-born for: the PlayStation Nike Air Trainer I.

These custom-made kicks are not even for sale, and best of luck trying to find a giveaway or charity fundraiser that’ll have these as a prize—only 24 exist in the whole world. So, excuse us if we were a bit on the jealous side as we stood just two feet from them when they were shown at the PlayStation 3 Player’s Lounge during All-Star Weekend. (We apologize for the journalist drool in advance, Lebron.)

A collaborative effort between Nike and Sony for their years of tit-for-tat (Sony TVs used at Nike events, Nike sneaks used at Sony events, etc.), the Air Trainers feature stylized X’s and O’s—the buttons you’d find on a PS3controller—drawn along the sides, with the year PlayStation came into existence (1994) emblazoned on the back of the left shoe. The coup de grace is the PS logo sewn into the tongue flaps.

The sneakers were first introduced in September 2009, so it’s a wonder any of them are still around to give away. But when The King is in town, you have to pull out all the stops, which is why the sneakers were paired with a custom-painted PSPGo laser-engraved with his logo. Fellow All-Stars Amare Stoudemire and Kevin Durant were also given similar packages, so it’s safe to say the only possible way to get your hands on these is to become a professional NBA groupie. Sorry!

Nike Air Max LeBron VII - Dunkman

From NiceKicks……

Of course, we have shown you this Nike Air Max Lebron VII “Dunkman” on a couple of occasions, and many of you have inquired about release information. While some sources have stated that the “Dunkman” Lebron VIIs will surface in the states during March, we have learned that they have just released in Europe at Nike’s online store.

Its finishing touches include black nylon laces and 3M. Click here to view additional photos.

Uh, oh!…..”Cooper” Nike Air Foamposite’s are on hold!

From NiceKicks…..
Nike Foamposite One - Copper

In mid-January, we notified you of what was the official release date of the “Copper” Nike Air Foamposite. It left us with the choice of purchasing this sneaker or treating our Valentine to a romantic dinner (or both…you can always hit up McDonald’s). However, we have just received word that this highly anticipated sneaker’s release has been delayed indefinitely.

Therefore, the only information we can give you at this moment is that the “Copper” Nike Air Foamposite will retail for $200. It may be at an advantage for some of you that it will not release close to Valentine’s Day; yet, it’s probably nerver-wrecking for those who have been impatiently awating this shoe since last year. Stay tuned for more release information.

I’m sorry…. but these sneakers are really not what I would wear…maybe that’s why there are attracting so much attention?…..

But I will admit..they are different……

And the McDonald’s thing ain’t gonna get it for Valentine’s Day unless your ‘shorty’ is a ‘step-off’…….
