The online video platform’s symbols appear in an all-over print on the heel and tongue. A “Kevin Durant” print also appears on the tongue in YouTube’s font. Moreover, a “Skip Ad” symbol appears on the heel tab. The pair is finished with a search bar printed on the insole.
The KD 12 YouTube sneaker is set to release on October
Nike PG3 Nasa sneaker
The PG3 Nasa is the collaboration between Paul George and NASA. This pair of PG3 reinterprets the space equipment in a new NBA sneaker. It is made of a blue base, mismatching orange and red forefoot wings. Also, there are plenty of silver details. Of course, the NASA logo is also stamped on the heel and sockliner.
The Nike PG3 Nasa sneaker is set to release on October 23rd, 2019 at select retailers and on nike.com.
Air Zoom Freak 1
Antetokounmpo, NBA’s reigning MVP, is releasing a new pair of Air Zoom Freak 1. Named “All Bros 2” the pair features a mix of red hues, both fluorescent and deep. The sneaker offers striking contrast, with speckled detailing on the signature backward Swoosh.
The Nike Zoom Freak 1 “All Bros” is set to release on October 27 2019.
Nike Alpha Dunk
The Nike AlphaDunk is designed for the biggest jumpers of the game. Aesthetically, the shoe is defined by its engineering. To gain an aerial advantage, athletes have to be positioned farther off the ground. The top of the shoe solves abrasion. The redesigned Flyknit construction offers a sock-like fit that is both soft and strong.
Of course, the model comes in several iterations. Each colorway tells the story of a slam-dunking icon.
Lebron 17 NBA Sneakers
The new Nike Lebron 17 features two independent Air Zoom Pods on the forefoot as well as a Knitposite upper. LeBron’s signature detailing has been moved to the tongue, including the citations and symbols “I’m King”, “LJ”, and “23”. The jagged topline is meant to evoke a crown.
The pair also comes in Lakers, Future Air and Black iterations.
