Two New Kix




Really, I have little interest in sneakers, but after attending the Nike Air Max LeBron VII release and summit in Akron last Friday, I'm kind of in sneaker-mode, or at least as much in sneaker-mode as a guy who only wears Sambas can be.

Anyway, presented here are two Clevo/Buckeye-related kix that were just released.

Above is the Air Jordan 1 Phat Premiere in throwback Cavs colors. From the Foot Locker Blog:

Lebron James’ star power has put the Cleveland Cavaliers back on the NBA radar, and clean classic retro Jordan I’s like this one are going put them back in the shoe game. This Air Jordan I Phat Premier in midnight navy/ceramic-white hits House of Hoops locations in November. It is a limited release inspired by throw-back Cav’s colors.

Below, the Ohio State Blazer Hi (via Hypebeast), which does the scarlet and gray, but without the real Buckeye decals.
