Nike served up an official collaboration between LeBron James and his favorite cereal with the LeBron 19 Low “Fruity Pebbles” earlier this year, coming full circle with the epic LeBron 4 PE that landed well over a decade ago.
Joining that sneaker release is a Dunk Low, revealed here via official images.
The fruit-flavored cereal stands out front and center via patterned shoelaces and an inner insole, with the official logo of the Post brand cereal adorning the tongue
The rest of the shoe is blocked with signature colors of red, yellow, and blue, while LeBron James’ crown logo appears on the heel-tab. A milky white opaque outsole sits below.
A full release date is not yet revealed, but is slated to drop before the end of 2022.
A fully-healed Paul George and a Kawhi Leonard make the Los Angeles Clippers instant contenders for the championship. With John Wall added to the mix, and they might be the team to beat in the Western Conference.
Again, it all depends on the health and availability of the Clippers’ Big Three, and George has proven to maintain his elite status in the league despite playing in barely half the regular season games during his return home to LA. We haven’t gotten much visibility of the Nike PG 6 on court, but the All-NBA level small forward should be ready to go for the start of the 2022-2023 NBA season. This new colorway could be part of his early rotation of sneakers as the baby blue and orange colors closely match the City Edition style of jerseys.
This latest colorway of Paul George’s Nike PG 6 is scheduled to release on August 13th at Nike Basketball retailers for $110.
It may be a while before Nike brings the Dunk back to the By You platform, but they’re not gatekeeping the model at all. In fact, there’s a seemingly endless supply of Dunk Lows and Dunk Highs arriving for men and women through 2022, with this “Bicoastal” colorway for the latter.
Focused on the classic two-toned college-style color-blocking, the Nike Dunk High “Bicoastal” sees a shade of green that is slightly skewed toward the teal spectrum. It has a green shade commonly seen in aquatic settings, enhanced by the white leather base layer.
A release date for these Dunk Highs have not been confirmed, but expect them in the Fall 2022 season.
Dunks and Air Force 1s have the attention of the mainstream, but there’s another 1980s basketball model that belongs in that “Mount Rushmore” of Nike Basketball icons. The Nike Terminator High, originally dropping in 1985, was one of the original “Be True” sneakers; later in 2022 it’ll make its presence known in a slew of original colorways.
Seen here via official images is the Georgetown coloway of navy blue and light grey, a college color combo that is still as striking decades letter. The same soft leather used in the Dunk Retro drops seems to be used for this model, with the shape and silhouette staying true to the OG. The big NIKE banner on the heel, easily the Terminator’s most definitive detail, remains untouched and unaltered.
There were indications that the Terminator High was set to return based on a collaborations by COMME des GARÇONS; that capsule also featured the iconic Georgetown look alongside two other college colors.
It may seem as Scottie Pippen has gotten slightly unhinged with his hot takes purely to generate interest in his new book, but that doesn’t take away from his contributions to the game of the basketball.
A pivotal piece in the Chicago Bulls dynasty as well as Team USA’s Olympics missions, Scottie finished a career as perhaps the prototypical small forward.
During the Air Flight Lite‘s run, Scottie was often laced in that specific product line as his game embodied the combination of the speed and power that the Flight Lite line was created for.
This likely set the foundation for the Uptempo line that followed not soon after.
Coming soon is this white/university red colorway that features that early-90s color-blocking, the static distortion pattern on the interior, and even the Scottie Pippen logo at the insole.
That logo didn’t exist during the Flight Lite Mid’s original run, but it’s clear Nike is bridging the connection between player and shoe.
