Earlier this week, we announced the new element to our Kicks On Court Champion race by introducing the Head-To-Head Matchups, which highlights the games our champion nominees play against each other. Simply put, you guys will be the judge of who wears the best shoe in each respective matchup. Kicks On Court’s first ever Head-To-Head Matchup features two of the top three nominees, Nick Young and Derrick Williams, as Minnesota played host to Philly last night. Young laced up the “Filbert” Air Jordan 7 in the first half before switching to the Nike Kobe 8 “Python” in the second half of play. As for Derrick Williams, he laced up the 1999-released Air Jordan 14 “Oxidized Green.” Let us know in the voting poll below who rocked the best pair of kicks in yesterday’s Nick Young vs. Derrick Williams Head-To-Head Matchup.
In other news, Russell Westbrook debuted a new colorway of the Air Jordan XX8, while Monta Ellis switched from a vintage Spizike to a classic Jordan signature in the same game.
