Larry Luk is revamping the look of the Nice Kicks Shop in Austin, TX.

The creatively complex Nike LeBron 11 finally dons an all-black makeup with the reveal of the “Anthracite” colorway. From its Hyperfuse upper to the Hyperposite lower half, the model comes completely blacked out, seemingly coinciding with James’ lights-out showing last week. Purple shows up just a bit on the branding, with anthracite finding its footing on the opaque outsole. Have a look at the photos below to get a closer glimpse of the “Anthracite” LeBron 11, and mark your calendar for their release this Saturday, March 15 for $200.
After a year marked by Air Jordan 1 releases, Jordan Brand revives the silhouette in rare Retro KO form, starting with the “Chicago” as the first to be officially unveiled. Drawing from the model’s original construction, the shoe’s canvas upper is paired up with a sole borrowed from the Nike Vandal, taking it back to an ’85 aesthetic. Mirroring the “Chicago” Jordan 1, white and red dominate the kick’s upper regions, with help from black on the side Swooshes and laces, leaving red to cover the outsole. This year’s first installment of the AJKO is set to land at Jordan retailers this Saturday, March 15 for $140, so until then, check out the photos below and feel free to leave your comments in the appropriate section.
Scared of the future? The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “MAG” Custom hops in the DeLorean, ready for a new era of performance and style.

Grey grooms the Flyknit upper, assisted by glow-in-the-dark hits on the Swoosh and outsole. Midsole speckling, heel accents and a bonus strap play to theme and nostalgia, completing this cinematic colorway. Check out detailed pics below and follow @clean13kicks on IG for all inquiries.
New seasons mean new silhouettes, and Nike is bringing the all-new Nike Lunarrestoa to the table. Bearing a leopard-printed upper, the low-top casual kick ditches laces for slip-on styling, as taped seams bring together the sneaker’s sweeping panels. Form-fitting through and through, the shoe’s sleek design culminates in a neoprene grippy ankle collar. Available for pre-order now at atmos, you can cop a pair for yourself for ¥11,550 (~$112).
Senior Night marks the last home game for players who have exhausted their eligibility, and many college basketball athletes try to go out with a bang. That was the case this past weekend, when Nevada’s two seniors put on their jerseys for the last time on their home floor, as both laced the Nike Kobe 8 “What the Kobe” for the first time this season. Jerry Evans Jr. and Deonte Burton shined in the footwear department and on the scoreboard, as they defeated UNLV to close out the regular season. Although the duo stole the show as a pair, many other notable sneakers also hit the NCAA hardwood around the country. North Carolina channeled the past by wearing the Tar Heel-inspired Air Jordan 10 “Powder Blue”, Florida’s Kasey Hill debuted the Flightposite 2014, and Oregon’s student section even makes a special appearance in this College Kicks On Court.
