On the last day of the 2013-2014 NBA season, we share with you the third installment of our Sole Access series. We saw Spurs equipment manager Travis Wade take us inside each player’s locker at the AT&T Center, in addition to the practice facility in January, and had Lakers equipment manager Carlos Maples walk us through the lockers of Nick Young and Kendall Marshall earlier this month. In today’s episode, Dwayne Wilson, the most tenured equipment manager in the NBA, gives us an exclusive tour inside the locker room, equipment room and weight room of the Sacramento Kings. Check out these walkthroughs, the sneaker-filled lockers of DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Williams and Rudy Gay, plus more behind-the-scenes info from Wilson about his day-to-day duties over the years.
Following Soley Ghost’s episode, the first filmed outside of a home in our Sneak Peek series, we break ground once again with a trip to Tustin, CA to visit former Arizona Wildcats star and current ESPN analyst, Miles Simon’s sneaker garage. With a collection consisting of an array of gems, watch the episode above and let us know which rare pair you liked most.
For our second installment of Sneaker Style, we feature modern day renaissance man 40oz Van. Most known for his swank snapbacks and insane BBQ block parties, Van made an enormous impression on streetwear culture in 2013 that is sure to carry over into the new year. We caught up Van during his recent visit to Houston for the H-Town Sneaker Summit to rap about how he integrates sneakers into his personal style. Check the video above to see how Van matches his minimalistic style with fly kicks.
This season, Suns forward Marcus Morris has made it all about LeBrons. With wears such as the “Forging Iron” XI’s and a couple XI iD’s as well, Morris found himself once again taking the court in one of King James’ signatures. In a Monday night matchup, Marcus decided to don the “Pure Platinum” LeBron X’s in what would become a 19-point victory against the LA Clippers. Also, teammate PJ Tucker decided he would join the Kicks On Court conversation as he netted 12 points and 7 rebounds while rocking the Nike Kobe Prelude III. Check out the images below as well as a full rundown of other kicks that was worn around the league last night.
