Kobe 11 Mambacurial Barcelona Nike Basketball Kicks

Italy may be the European country that the Philly born Los Angeles Laker legend Kobe Bryant was raised, but he spent some of his days in the Spanish city of Barcelona too.

And now the greatest player the NBA has ever seen not named Magic or Mike has retired he won’t stop like Basketball or Jordan’s when it comes to his Nike trainers. His latest range of Elite 11 ‘Mambacurial’ sneakers kicking it with soccer.

Following in the cleat steps of his Brazil carnival ready last ‘curials, that joined the Rio 2016 Olympic party come the Barcelona’s. And in dark red and blue that Spider-Man would be proud of these yellow trimmed court slingers may be Kobe and Nike’s most classic composition since the Beethoven or what could have been Charlotte colorways. But from Turkish Airline partner Lionel Messi to their Spanish sister basketball team these new Kobe’s are for F.C. Barcelona.

And Pau.

The Kobe Elite Lows, especially the 11’s (note the number) look like soccer shoes anyway…so it’s only fitting these Bara soles are part of the uniform collection. Not to plug or to pun but rocking these Nikes really feel like walking on air, so you know that the best line since Jordan’s can toe the one between basketball and football.

Add some studs and you could see these kicks in the Nou Camp come new season. But you know Barca’s best will wear them off the floor too. Also, now none of Messi’s Kobe competing, city-to-city selfies will be complete without what’s on his feet. And when it comes to Kobe Bryant’s extended European family, you know his Gasol brother has to be sent a pair. It’s the least for his feet following his hand of Basketball God’s punch gave a struggling Spanish side the Olympic Bronze for their nation out in South America this Summer.

These latest colourways are available to rock come the end of the week on September 8th. And the navy and crimson, black and orange trimmed Barcelona has us singing its praises in opera house tones like Queen’s late, great Freddie Mercury. Fit for a King, even LeBron has to give it up for the new Kobe’s. The capital city of Catalonia in the Kingdom of Spain will never look the same. Now Las Ramblas is really going to have the colour of the city walking down it.

Even if those steps belong to someone bouncing the ball in a whole different way.

New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are ‘Coming To America.’

New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are Coming To America Poster
"Sexual Chocolate"...

“GOOD MORNING NEIGHBORS!”

“Hey! F### you!”

(With genuine joy and affection back) “Yes! F### you too!”

Ever since Milwaukee Bucks position and court redefining Point God, Giannis Antetokounmpo came to America like Eddie Murphy, he truly beyond a clich√© changed the game and the watching world. And now with Nike, lacing up some new signatures inspired by the classic 80’s Murphy movie ‘Coming To America’, the Greek Freak is about to change the sneaker one too.

These new most valuable sneakers from this year’s MVP are so clean they’ll have you running up like Samuel L. Jackson in “McDowell’s”.

Time to get the brooms.

It’s about to be a clean sweep Foot Locker.

Antetokounmpo’s first sneaker the Nike Freak 1 is about to take all those LeBron, Kobe’s and Westbrook’s to the shoeboxes with this breath of Air. Fresh out the cardboard these colorful pairs have a reversed swoosh like Travis Scott. Perfect for any shoe dog like Phil Knight. And these ‘Coming’ colorways also feature leopard, black, grey and gold accents to the men who would be King. Prince Akeem’s royal garb and the most inspired international influence this league has seen since the dream shake of Hakeem Olaujawon for a regal fit.

And with the gold ‘Coming To America’ logo on the tongue of these licks you can expect this revolution to be televised. But please bring back our favourite ‘Raw’ and ‘Delirious’ comedian for the commercial Nike.

This perfect pair for the theme of the perfect prototype player of this games future generation drip as hard as ‘ER’ and ‘Logan’ star Eriq La Salle’s jheri curl in this movie. Watch the shoes like Ronald Reagan said to Eazy-E when N.W.A. visited the White House according to The Game! If co-star Arsenio Hall still had a show (bring it on back again) then he’d have them as a guest on his couch. With or without the freak.

Put up a wall against these Trump! We have more shoeboxes to stack.

Wearing clothes are about to be a new experience for you as you unbox these with the rose petals that fall out like Tokyo trees after cherry blossom season instead of tissue paper. There’s also some ‘Coming To America’ inspired Freak 1 Nike apparel to match with some ‘I Love NY’ heart homages to the film about a prince who made his way to the Big Apple like this kid from the Olympic home of athletes in Athens, Greece did on Draft Day.

These really are the Crown Prince of Zamuda.

These Greek sneakers are so freaking good, you’re going to want to renounce your throne.

Come on, come all.

Dame Time Forever. What Are Those New Adidas ‘Black Panther’s’?

Published

Damian Lillard Adidas Dame 5 Black Panther
A Nation Under Our Sneakers...

Adidas are in the Endgame now.

Before we get started, Havlicek would have stole that ball. Just saying Paul George. Stop acting like Paul Pierce. It wasn’t a “bad shot”. And R.I.P. to a Boston Celtic and storied NBA great. Dear John will be stealing every ball in hoop heaven. Rest peacefully.

Like a cat toying with a mouse. That’s how we described Lillard’s Dame Time winning clutch three from Mt. Hood as Portland gave Oklahoma City roses in the first round this week. Damian had more clock than grandfather’s and still took his time. Because it is his after all.

And now as timely as ever in the same week as one of the greatest playoff game and series winning shots in basketball for all time and one of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood history coming out with ‘Avengers: Endgame’, this cat is building a superhero legendary legacy.

You better check a comic-book or something.

T’Challa may have been Thanos snapped to cat litter in the Avengers ‘Infinity War’, but the King of Wakanda has a regal gift by royal appointment to Damian Lillard like he did Victor Oladipo in a victorious Slam Dunk Contest for testament tributes last season.

The cat has something out the bag.

The pick of the litter…

Now you may be screaming “what are those” like Shuri at these royal sandals, but try these sneakers on. They embody everything about the next-gen, nano-tech Black Panther suit she developed for this emperor’s clothes. All the way down to the texture and trim which straps “Wakanda Forever” over the laces. The titan mad purple that runs like veins through Chadwick Boseman’s superhero suit absorbs all the blows he takes and turns it into a recharged deflecting energy pulse. Kind of like all the rock the baby and wrist tapping crap Damian Lillard was taking off Russell Westbrook before he absorbed it all and gave it back in a half century energy that exploded with a game-winning fireball.

Never delete that footage.

Marvel have also gifted Dame with his own Black Panther mask like Oladipo, but this time canvas created from his super sneakers. Part of the ‘Heroes Among Us’ series from the three stripes, a comic-strip advertising campaign has been crafted. Featuring Lillard standing in front of the downtown RIP City, PDX skyline looking Wakandan in artwork akin to the ‘Nation Under Our Feet’ graphic novel redux series that rebooted this classic character before his feature film debut.

Damian may have played Killmonger villain to the Oklahoma Thunder, going G.O.A.T. like Michael Jordan B. But he’s a hero to us now blazing a trail like a human torch possessed with a fire and the heart of a lion inside all that panther power.

The Dame 5 will assemble with the arc of the bolted up ‘Iron Man’ Harden Vol. 3 for James and the patch of the ‘Nick Fury’ TMac 1 for Tracy McGrady. As well as the ‘Captain America’ Adidas N3XT L3V3L, and a ‘Captain Marvel’ Adidas Pro Vision for all those who could take the lead all day, with us ’till the end of the line. HIGHER. FURTHER. FASTER.

But we know which ones will be clawed off the stores shelf throne come it’s big blockbuster release with ‘Endgame’ right now.

It’s a drip fit for a King.
