Before the “Last Shot” there was the “First Shot.” As only a freshman in 1982, MJ got on to his game-winning ways early by knocking down a jumper to defeat Georgetown in the NCAA National Championship Game. The Air Jordan 1 KO “Rivalry” Pack celebrates the moment and the two Jordan Brand schools, dressing the canvas kicks in Tar Heel and Hoya Hues. Get a detailed look at these collegiate colorways of the AJKO below via Hypebeast and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for release date information.
Kevin Durant’s game embodies his Easy Money Sniper nickname with an even-keel flow on the floor that features a quick burst of flash. The latest rendition of his sixth signature sneaker does the same, with a subtle base and fiery pops to create the Nike KD VI “Neutral”. Mirroring some of the road PE versions of the model that Durant has already laced this season in Kicks On Court, this KD VI is bringing the bang to everyone. Dark tones of black and anthracite split to provide the base, while a bright total orange Swoosh and team orange accents hop off the subtle upper. Forged by fire, this take on the low-top sniper will hit stores March 15th for $130. Drop your thoughts in the feedback box below, and keep heating up Nice Kicks for everything sneakers.

It’s been a day for debuts. After LeBron James’ break out of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite in Chicago, Russell Westbrook chose Hollywood for the first wear of his Air Jordan 10 PE. Following in the footsteps of the Chris Paul pair, this AJ10 exclusive features a black base, Thunder team colors down the tongue, icy outsoles and Westbrook’s jersey number tagging the ankle. While Russ eventually switched to the Air Jordan XX8 SE, these did get some hardwood TV time. Peep a close up shot from Sole Collector above and look for more in tomorrow morning’s Kicks On Court.
The latest LeBron is here. Visiting the Chicago Bulls, LeBron James chose the Windy City to debut the Nike LeBron 11 Elite. Captured in a photo by Jim Ice, this retooled rendition of the LeBron 11 is prime for the playoffs and possibly redefined for LeBron’s feet. Over the course of the season, LeBron has favored the Nike Zoom Soldier VII over that of the LeBron 11. If this game is any indication, we could see James rocking the LeBron 11 Elite through the rest of the regular season and throughout the playoffs. Let us know what you think of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite in the comment section.
