Starting 12/7, Nike will release one sneaker each weekend from the pack in order from Kobe 1 to Kobe 8. Each sneaker will retail for $200, and we expect it to be EXTREMELY LIMITED!

It’s November; Where Is The Nike Zoom Kobe XI?

Nike Zoom Kobe 9 Wear Test Sample

It’s almost the end of November, and Nike has been reluctant to release any information reguarding the Zoom Kobe XI. The Mamba has been sidelined all year after suffering an injury at the end of last season. Although we have yet to see Kobe on the court, Nike has yet to leak any official images of Kobe’s ninth signature sneaker. That’s where we come in; We dug up some photos of the Zoom Kobe 9 Wear test sample and some other images of speculated designs for the sneakers.

Wiz Khalifa Finally Launches an Official Converse Sneaker Collaboration


Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has notoriously been a fan of Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers since his mixtape days in 2006. He even gives the famous sneaker brand a nod by calling his posse the “Taylor Gang”.Wiz has experienced a boatload of success and popularity over the past few years; why Converse never cashed in on his fame has always been an enigma to me. Especially with the way the sneaker market is today!

2013 finally brings the first official collaboration between Wiz Khalifa and Converse. The Converse All Star Swag Hi sneaker is decked out in a nifty grey and black camo pattern coupled with metal eyelets and metal studs layered across the tongue. The sneaker is held together with a white rubber toecap and midsole featuring a clear bottom emphasizing more of the camouflage pattern. I’ve never been a huge fan of Converse sneakers however the All Star Swag Hi takes the classic shoe to the next level. These are a must have for any fans of Wiz Khalifa! They release Friday August 23rd at Footlocker Stores.
