Air Jordan XX8 SE
Bonafide benefactress Maya Moore is back to her giving ways, putting her special Air Jordan XX8 SE "Red Velvet" PE up for auction to benefit The United Way. Recently received in celebration of her 25th birthday on June 11th, Moore's Air Jordan XX8 SE is inspired by her favorite red velvet cake dessert. Bringing the party to the court, the reigning WNBA Champion donned these tasty exclusives over the weekend against the Phoenix Mercury. The makeup of these celebratory Air Jordans feature a deep-red and white upper, finished off with a speckled midsole and the "MM" logo on the tongues. Get a better look at the size 12.5s below, and bid generously on these game-worn one of ones for charity here.
Kawhi Leonard has a dream job, but does anyone actually dream of guarding LeBron James in the NBA Finals? The humble hooper rose to the occasion on both ends of the floor over the course of the series, containing the best player in basketball and leading the San Antonio Spurs to their fifth NBA Championship. Kawhi's prolific play earned him NBA Finals MVP honors, capping off his impressive first official season with Jordan Brand in the Air Jordan XX8 SE. While the Miami Heat ultimately took the L, their kicks remained on point. LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all rocked PEs in the final game of the Finals, while their winning rivals remained in the models that got them there. See who wore what in last night's Game 5 action in the photos below and thanks for tuning into Kicks On Court all season.
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.

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.
