Hosting Houston, Russell Westbrook served his guests by dropping 24 points, handing out seven assists, grabbing four boards and forcing four steals. His comeback campaign has shown strong on the stat sheet, and it’s also been good on foot. Since returning from injury, Russ has debuted a new Air Jordan 10 PE and another Air Jordan XX8 SE PE. Last night, we saw more of the latter as Russ rocked a white and orange camo colorway of the SE silo.
While Jordan PEs carried Westbrook in OKC, we also saw reigning KOC Champ Derrick Williams rotating Nikes and Danny Green showing love to The Glove. See who wore what in last night’s NBA action in today’s Kicks On Court.
Gone for surgery but now he’s back again, Russell Westbrook had his best performance of the season last night against the Suns. The explosive point guard was back to his ways, dropping a season-high 36 points in an “Orange Camo” Air Jordan XX8 SE PE. Scoring aside, Russ stuffed the entire stat sheet by racking up 9 boards, 9 assists and 4 steals.
In the end, Phoenix got the win, with the usual suspects sporting the likes of the LeBron X “BHM,” Kobe 9 “Masterpiece,” “Gym Green” Foamposite Pro and “Big Shaqtus” Shaq Attaq. Check out the best sneaker sightings from all three of last night’s NBA games in today’s Kicks On Court.
Today is Fat Tuesday, and even Jordan Brand is getting in on the fun. @Jumpman23 has unveiled Russell Westbrook’s latest Air Jordan XX8 SE PE, this time dressed for a Mardi Gras celebration on the court. Vibrant hues of purple, green and volt adorn this player exclusive, which you can see in full above. Let the good times (and the Thunder) roll!
Known for their off-court appeal, Jordan Brand stepped up their game by putting the latest Jumpman signature, the Air Jordan XX8 SE, on duty for “Award Season” with a duo of PEs. Gifted to members of Team Jordan, the special occasion sneaker went for a complementary aesthetic, as performance meets sophistication via predominantly white and black silos livened up with metallic gold accents and branding. An ice blue translucent outsole traces the tandem’s bottoms, which are also touched up with gold speckles. No word yet on whether these Jordan XX8 SEs will ever be released, so in the meantime, hit up the comments section with your thoughts and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates.
The literal and figurative flavor of New Orleans continues to spice up basketball sneakers, seen now on the Jordan “Crescent City” Collection. The Air Jordan XX8 SE finds inspiration from the structures seen around the French Quarter, baring a crackled upper and lively accents. Former NO resident Chris Paul sees city styling on the Jordan CP3.VII, packing a soulful purple upper over a hearty speckled midsole. Carmelo Anthony has the jazz thanks to the Jordan Melo M10, set off by a musical brass heel counter. Lastly, the Jordan Super.Fly 2 finds itself dipped in dark powder blue, benefiting from gold branding and architectural nods on the tongue and toe box.
Fans of the Jordan “Crescent City” Collection can look for the lineup to launch online at Jordan and at select accounts on February 14th. Look for Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook to rock their respective models in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.
Nearly a year after its debut, the Air Jordan XX8 is still on a tear, passing the baton to the XX8 SE. De-shrouded, the re-imagined signature is revisited in time for a springtime set. Drawing from mainstay Jordan colorways, “Cool Grey” and Black/Red versions of the refined performance sneaker are the way, in addition to a “Powder Blue” rendition of recent popularity. The trio is set to land at Jordan Brand retailers, including Nike.com and Finish Line, on February 1st, retailing for $150 each.
