Nike Foamposite Pro - Electric Green / Black



The good folks over at theshoegame.com have posted pics of a shoe that is slated to release in 2011. The shoe, the Nike Foamposite Pro "Electric Green". The colorway is bound to wind up on the feet of a Celtic's player. The shoe is reminiscent of the Kryponate sneaker, so it is likely that Nate Robinson would wear this at some point. What are your thoughts on this shoe?

New Celtics Shirt @ Marshall's Stores



I was out doing my weekly shopping when I came across this UNK brand shirt. Marshall's is selling the shirt for $9.99 and sizes range from M to XXXL. My only complaint is that there is no Perk.

Gerald Green Reebok Show Stopper Pumps





In 2007 Gerald Green delighted Celtics fans with his amazing win of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

Sneaker Rewind: Rajon Rondo's Reebok Questions



When Rajon Rondo first entered the league he was sponsored by Reebok. During his rookie season he wore this exclusive pair of Reebok Questions. This shoe was Allen Iverson's first pro model. I bet Reebok is really regretting not signing Rondo long term. With Iverson in Turkey, he would have made a perfect replacement for the face of Reebok basketball.

Sneaker Rewind: Michael Finley Air Jordan 12 PE



Last season the Celtics added Michael Finley to their bench to add a veteren presence to the team. Finley was a good role player off the bench, however he was not the piece needed to win another Championship. Today we look back at one of his finer sneaker moments with the C's. Michael's Air Jordan 12 black/white PE's, were much like Michaels game. Simple, to the point, but overall classic. Michael Finley PE's sell on Ebay in the $350 to $600 range. There is currently a pair of Michael Finley AJ12's bidding on EBAY. Click the link to bid.

Al Jefferson Player Exclusive Reebok Show Stopper



True Celtic fans will always appreciate a player that hustles and gives their all on every play. Al Jefferson was one of these players. It is unfortunate that Al had to leave to get the KG deal done. It would have been nice to watch his career blossum, but I think everything turned out ok. We won a Championship and Big Al is on a contender in Utah. As a reminder of his time with the C's, let's take a look back a the Reebok Show Stopper Pump. Al wore these shoes during the 2007 season and each shoe has "Big Al" monogramed on the lateral side of the shoe. This shoe is one of Reebok's finer efforts of the past 5 years and is a comfortable shoe. The Pump feature offers great ankle support for players prone to rolling their ankles.

Fresh Gear: Chalk Line Brand Jackets




Today we take a trip back to the early 90's to revisit Chalk Line brand jackets. The early 90's fashion was all about big logos and bright vibrant colors. There is no better physical representation of this era than Chalk Line brand player jackets. Take for example this Larry Bird jacket. If you are interested in copping your own Chalk Line jacket, I would recommend hitting EBAY, as they do come along fairly regularly.

A Trip Down Memory Lane............



The staff here at Celtkicks.com is always hard at work to find new and compelling stories relating to Celtic's footwear, however it is important that from time to time we step back and remember some great shoes from the past. Here we find an advertisement from Converse for the release of the Converse Star Conquest. Take time to read this entertaining ad. If you are interested in owning this shoe.........good luck. Almost all orginal pairs are long gone, but that won't prevent me from hunting!!!

Welcome Home Eddie House



With all the hype surrounding the Celtics/Heat season opener, it was almost all but forgotten that Eddie House was returning to Boston. During the Celtic's Championship run, House became forever endeared to C's fans for hitting numerous big shots. He was a fan favorite during his time with C's and we here at Celtkicks.com thought we'd pay Eddie his due by showcasing his RBK "Unheralded" PE's. The model pictured have all white uppers with large Reebok logo in kelly green. House was also known write messages to friends and family with sharpie on his shoes. These PE's are extremely rare and I have never seen a pair hit Ebay. For now we can just look and enjoy.

Sneaker Rewind: Shaquille O'Neal



As the oldest player in the league Shaquille O'neal has worn alot of sneakers throughout his career. Shaq has had several endorsment deals with numerous brands but none has been more fondly remembered than his first signature shoe the Reebok "Shaq Attack" Pump. When the shoe was originally released, local stores would have a life size display of Shaq holding a single size 20 shoe. This made quite the impression on young sneaker fans, which resulted in the shoe being larger than life. Subsequent Shaq shoes would fail to gain the hype of the original. If you would like a pair of your own prepare to pay big bucks. A single size 20 Shaq Attack shoe has been known to fetch over $1000 per.

Semih Fever Hits Boston!



To the surprise of many Celtics fans, Semih Erden has far out performed expectations thus far this season.

Semih has been holding down the low post in Nike Hyperfuse in a Black/White colorway this season. If you want to cop your own pair expect to shell out $99 on Eastbay.
