Brand: Nike
Name: Eulogy
Release Date: Feb. 27
Price: $220

Kobe Eulogy

Kobe is on his way out and as he rounds third coming home, Nike is really using this last opportunity to show off some real heat. The Kobe 11 “Eulogy” is just the latest in the line of simplistic fire that the guys in Beaverton have cooked up. Putting the translucent ice front and center the sole looks great and the fly weave upper looks fantastic in the purple and black.

Final thoughts:

It’s a clean Kobe, and if the Mamba is what you’re into, this is a good shoe to have in your collection. It’s not a must have but it’s a nice memento from Kobe’s home stretch.

Brand: Jordan
Name: Master
Release Date: Feb. 27
Price: $190


Based off a poster from Jordan’s playing days, the Air Jordan 12 Master is like the Timbs of the Jordan universe. It’s simple and that’s what makes it work. The plain black will match everything and the accents of gold on the lace holders really set it off. This shoe has premium leather and if you are saving and can’t cop every Jordan release, this is what you should pull the trigger on.

Final thoughts:

It’s clean, simple, and it’ll match everything. To sum it up, it’s just an all-black Jordan that can’t really go wrong. I will be locking these up.

Brand: Reebok
Name: The Question Unworn
Price: $140


The brand that Allen Iverson built has returned and in force. This All-Star edition throw back of The Questions is awesome. This shoe is awesome, and the blue and yellow color way goes super hard. Any AI fan would be stupid to pass on these. Reebok killed it.

Final thoughts:
Reebok’s masterpiece throwback to 1996 is really nostalgic, super clean, and iconic. It’s a nice pair of kicks.

Brand: Adidas
Name: ZX Flux Runner
Price: $110


Adidas has been finding stride in 2016. Between the black pirate Yeezy 350 Boost re-stock selling out last weekend and all the different apparent color ways and silhouettes shown off at Yeezy Season 3, There is a lot to look forward to in the future.

In the meanwhile however, the three stripes look to continue the momentum with this new white color way of the ZX Flux. I haven’t personally tried this cut yet, but from all of the opinions I’ve gathered the Flux is a great runner. I love the reflective aspect of the upper and the white is a good look always.

Final thoughts:

Because this shoe looks so good and the price point is so low, it would be a good buy for anyone. I’m not a particular fan of Adidas shoes, they just don’t fit my style, but I really like this shoe. I would cop.
