Nike Sportswear outfits the timeless Nike Air Force 1 Low silhouette with a marble print theme in black and turbo green. The design print is visible on the Swoosh, tongues, back heel logo, lace locks, midsole logo and outsole. The sneakers’ swirly look underneath makes for a fresh aesthetic, varying from what you normally see on an Air Force 1. To get technical, the materials used in this edition of the AF1 is a black-based nubuck upper with a patent leather Swoosh on each side.
Available in stores and online Saturday.

From the Crazy 1 to the T Macs to the Mutombos, adidas has been steady in their output of retro basketball sneakers. This weekend we’ll see another join the wall in the adidas Mutombo II.

Now, the former All-Star center and the NBA’s all time leader in blocks, Dikembe Mutombo, will have his second signature shoe re-released. Saturday’s Mutombo II will be an OG black and red colorway – the same colorway Mutombo wore during the 1994 NBA Playoffs when his Denver Nuggets stunned the top seeded Seattle Supersonics in the first round. Features of the Mutombo II include a number of overlays on the upper, Mutombo’s name across the tongue, and his brand logo on the heel.
The adidas Originals Mutombo II in a black and red colorway will drop at Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EDT) on Saturday, May 10th for $ 110. Check the Launch Locator to see if which stores will carry the release.

The Air Jordan 2 Retro “Dark Concord” is a hybrid sneaker that blends elements from various iconic models. Taking a look at the shoe, elephant print from the Air Jordan 3 is visible in addition to Dark Concord from the Air Jordan 11. A subtle splatter print throughout the midsole is present which is reminiscent of the Air Jordan 4. The Dark Concord edition of the Air Jordan 2 is a memorable concoction of both design and legacy.

Along with the latest LeBron James and Kobe Bryant signature sneakers, the Nike KD VI Elite “Hero” stands strong on the mountain top in the Nike Elite Hero pack. This weekend, Kevin Durant overcame the naysayers to advance the Oklahoma City Thunder to the next round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Proving the doubters wrong is all in a day’s work, and the Nike KD VI doesn’t stop working either.
The shoe matches Kevin Durant’s style of play with precision craftmanship for strength and breathability. Unique to this pair, this new version boasts a full-length, visible Nike Zoom unit that runs through the entire midsole. Built for speed and decked out in turbo green, the shoe features Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar® aramid fibers, supporting Durant’s explosive and versatile style of play.

This Saturday, May 10th, will see the release of two Kyrie Irving player edition colorways of the Nike Zoom HyperRev. The HyperRev, one of Nike’s newest performance basketball shoes, is also the second shoe to get the Kyrie Irving PE treatment after the 2013 Hyperdunk. The two HyperRevs dropping at House of Hoops on Saturday are inspired by Kyrie’s team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the country of his birth, Australia. The Australian colorway is very similar to the 2013 Hyperdunk mentioned above. Both releases feature vibrant colors with equally eye catching accents – a perfect translation of Kyrie’s game – a blend of sharpshooting with precision ball handling. Both also feature Kyrie’s branded logo “K” across the front of the Velcro ankle strap.
The two Nike Zoom HyperRev Kyrie Irving PE colorways will be available at select House of Hoops by Foot Locker this Saturday, May 10th for $ 120 each. Check the Launch Locator to find out which stores will have these releases.
