The low-cut Nike LeBron 9 will make its official debut in April. Here's another look at one of the anticipated looks on the horizon, featuring a lightweight, breathable obsidian Hyperfuse-constructed upper with volt color pop on the Swoosh logos, midfoot harness, tongue signature and heel logo. White fills in the heel tab and midsole, while blue grey works the tongue, laces, inner lining and outsole to complete the look. Still waiting for an official date.

This new House of Hoops exclusive colorway of the Nike Air Max Barkley was inspired by Sir Charles' alma mater at the University of Auburn. The shoe sports a micro-perforated synthetic obsidian upper accented by Team orange on the tongue, laces, inner lining and pull-tab. White works various branding points on the upper, as well as detailing along the midsole, which is finished off with orange Max Air cushioning and an obsidian-dominated outsole.

Q-Rich’s Air Jordan Player Exclusive chronicles date back to his earliest days as an NBA pro – particularly with the Los Angeles Clippers, who drafted him in 2000. These Air Jordan II PEs date back nearly a decade when the Air Jordan II was re-issued a number of colorways, with this PE version featuring the royal blue and red accents with ‘Q’ and ’3′ embroidered onto the ankle collars.

The Child’s Play movie saga has played out in five volumes, gaining a cult following for the murderous Good Guys doll since the series first began in 1988, and believe it or not, a re-make of the original is in the works for the near future. The high demand for Chucky’s antics has led to sneaker customizer releasing another version of his popular ‘Child’s Play’ customs, putting forth a slightly altered version to commemorate a sequel; the ‘Let’s Play 2′ Customs features an orange outsole and interior (the first version was red), with two knives detailed on the outer toe-box (the first one has just one). These are up for sale on the Diversitile online store and should go fast as they are very limited in number and wildly popular, so check out the Nike Dunk High ‘Let’s Play 2′ below and let us know what you think (batteries not included).
Ankle support nearly meant calf support. Impact protection meant fitting in as much Air and sheer volume as possible. And of course, colors were vibrant whenever possible. Why not throw a Pump system into the mix too, even if you're not the company that started the mechanism's craze to begin with? Not too much regard for sticking strictly to team colors, either, in 1991.
It might look a little funky now -- and about 3 inches too tall -- but the Air Force 180 High was an ideal big man shoe in its day. That much lockdown and little mobility was considered a sign of tremendous support. For The Admiral, it was his year in the Air Force 180 High that he truly came into his own and was recognized as one of the league's best centers.
After putting up 25.6 points per game and a career high 13 rebounds per outing, David Robinson was named to both the All-NBA First Team and the All-Defensive First Team at the end of the 1991 season, both firsts in his career.
With the Air Force 180 High by his side all season, he's been forever linked to the shoe ever since.

Similar to the LeBron 8, the Air LeBron slide works with a full Retro blue leather upper. Black works the footbed and 180 heel Air bag, while hot pink continues the Miami inspiration throughout the underlay and Nike branding throughout. Filiment green handles the outsole below, completing another sure sellout as part of the Nike Basketball LeBron collection.
