KICK CONFIDENTIAL: MJ vs LBJ

It's MJ by a Hare! Scouting the hottest releases for the upcoming week.

Nike Lebron 12 Ext ‘Wheat’

RELEASE DATE: 04-04-15

Price: $250

Back in 2004 LeBron James supposedly told Nike he could ball in anything - even a pair of Timberland boots! Well, since then Nike has been creating speciality ‘Wheat’ colored shoes especially for LeBron. The Nike LeBron 12 ‘Wheat’ comes equipped with a Hyperposite upper body and Megafuse outsole. Every king needs something gold, and LeBron is no exception. The shoe also incorporates a gold Nike swoosh on the side and the date 2-13-04 on the back tongue. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait another 11 years for more of Cleveland gold.


Air Jordan 7 Retro ‘Hare’

RELEASE DATE: 04-02-15

Price: $310

Everyone’s favorite basketball combination is back. No, not, Shaq and Kobe or Lebron and D. Wade—we're talking about Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny! The two are back to deliver us the Air Jordan 7 Retro ‘Hare’ which was last released in 2008. The shoe consists of a grey side panel and white silhouette. The most striking feature is the red stitching on the heel. The tongue is also unique with the famous ‘Jump Hare’ with green, orange, and purple highlights.


Nike Lebron 12 ‘Easter’

RELEASE DATE: 04-02-15

$200

This Easter the King has come! If you want to get a leg up on the egg hunt, you are in luck. The Nike LeBron 12 brings an array of colors this holiday season while staying true to the original silhouette. With a black Hyperposite heal and a light violet, orange, and aluminum Hyperfuse upper mesh - this shoe is perfect for your pastel church suit and jumping over Easter baskets.


Air Jordan 5 ‘Metallic Silver’

RELEASE DATE: 04-04-15

$190

With spring around the corner, Nike is releasing the white and metallic silver Air Jordan 5. With Metallic Silver on the midsole, tongue, and “23” stitched on the heel, these shoes might be considered plain. But when you factor in that the 5’s have been redone more times than Mortal Kombat, these shoes aren’t only sleek but perfectly simple.
