Autographed Dee Brown Reebok Omni Lite Pumps



To quote Ice Cube "today was a good day". Today I met my childhood idol and former Celtic's guard Dee Brown at Armchair QB Authentics in North Attleboro, MA.

He started showing me pictures on his cell phone of his vast sneaker collection. He told me that he has number 0000 and 0007 (his jersey number) of the limited Release Reebok did in 2008, in which they released 1,991 number pairs of the colorway Dee wore in the 1991 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. He continued to show me several exclusive colorways of the Reebok D-Time from his personal collection. All and all it was an amazing experience and Dee Brown proved to be a classy individual. .

Rajon Rondo's Nike Air Max 360 BB Low PE






This may be a sneaker that Celtic's fans may hate and for good reason. Nike is slated to release the Nike Air Max 360 BB Low in the spring. However the release of the shoe got off to a shaky start when C's star Rajon Rondo severly rolled his ankle in the shoe. The shoe is very similar to Nike Air Max Lebron and uses many of the same technologies (360 Air Max/Flywire.). What are your thoughts on this new effort from Nike?

Jermaine O'neal Nike Air Max Closer IV PE Away



As stated earlier, I am really starting to dig the Nike Air Max Closer IV. I found this great pic from www.counterkicks.com showcasing the J.O. special AWAY makeup. Note the JO7 logo on the heal. This shoe is crazy.

Anta KG1 Cut Up !!!



Counterkicks.com posted an interesting article today showing the slaughtering and dissection of Kevin Garnett's latest signature shoe the Anta KG1. CLICK HERE to view 40 photos of the shoe's dissection. Counterkicks said the following:

"With Kevin Garnett’s signature shoe, the ANTA KG 1, being a China-only release, we’ve yet to really get a good understanding of the construction or engineering of the sneaker here in the US. One brave Chinese consumer with two knives has changed that.

Below are 40 detailed photos of the ANTA KG 1 being slaughtered and dissected by every material strip and layer, including a cross-section of the midsole. Interesting highlights include a mesh innersleeve which extends from the throat of the shoe and covers the entire toe, and a translucent gel-based cushioning unit found at the heel."

Marquis Daniels AND1 Renegade Pro Mid PE



Counterkicks.com recently released these photos from sneaker brand AND1's twitter Account. The shoes are called the AND1 Renegade Pro Mid and this colorway is exclusive to the Celtic's own Marquis Daniels. The shoes feature a visible heel L2G pinned air unit.

Fresh From the Court: JO's Nike Air Max Closer IV




Are man J.O. appears to be playing better lately. He is finishing near the basket and his left handed blocks are filthy. Much like the man, I am beginning to appreciate his shoe more and more each game. This season the "Other O'neal" rocks the Nike Air Max Closer IV. The simple lines of the design and the pearlescent toe cap make the shoe really pop. The shoes are currently on sales at Dick's Sporting Goods for $74.99, but the colorway is on backorder. I suggest trying your local Dick's store.
