words // Pierce Simpson:
With the NBA rapidly approaching playoff time, College Basketball season already reaching its conclusion, and Major League Baseball getting underway, it’s rather crazy to think that Spring sports action is already in full-swing, no pun intended. Nonetheless, the sneaker industry looks to get in on the action as well as a variety of notable silhouettes are gracing retail shelves, such as the Air Jordan 11 Low paying homage to the Hoyas of Georgetown and a vibrant “Gym Red” Nike Foamposite Pro model. So, with all of those moving parts, it made for one intriguing week of sneakers that we captured within the latest edition of Nice Kicks Staff Picks. Gathering input from the NK legion, we gathered the thoughts and sneakers selections of our staffers.
To see for yourself, flip through the pages below and let us know in the comments section which staffer had the best pick of the week.
“As I patiently wait for a chance to cop the “velvet” Air Max 90, I can’t help but be drawn to this reptile-inspired variation. Pairing infrared accents with textured detailing, these will surely see a lot of run once the weather warms up.”
