Check these Air Penny '96 All-Star' customs

It's been a while since we posted some CUSTOM KICKS, but there was no way I wasn't sharing these pics. Simply put: These are HOT FIRE.

Made by DANK CUSTOMS, these Nike Air Max Penny 1 "96 All-Star" sneakers pay homage to Anfernee Hardaway, the 46th NBA All-Star game and the seriously 90s uniforms the teams wore for the game on Feb. 11, 1996 in San Antonio.

Hardaway wore his all-black Air Penny 1s in the actual game, when he scored 18 points on 4-for-4 shooting from the field and 6-for-8 from the line. He also added seven assists and three rebounds in 31 minutes in the East's 129-118 win over the West. Michael Jordan, who dropped 20 points in 22 minutes was the game's MVP.

There's no doubt that plenty of sneakerheads and 90s basketball fans wish a retail version of these was on the way. Make it happen Phil Knight.

Shawn Kemp Kamikaze 1s return on Jan. 17

Reebok has announced that Shawn Kemp's first signature sneaker, The Kamikaze, is set to make a triumphant return on Jan. 17. These are the same sneakers that The Reign Man wore in 1994, a year in which Kemp threw down countless alley-oops from Gary Payton and undoubtedly impregnated countless women throughout the Seattle area and world-wide.

Take a stroll down memory lane with some classic pics of Kemp in his Kamikazes:

New Yorkers will also remember that St. John's wore these in black and red during the Felipe Lopez days back when Lopez was supposed to be "The Next Big Thing."

Supreme Foamposites are on the way

Supreme will have yet another crazy collaboration with Nike, this time in Foamposite One form. The black/gold kicks with Versace-ish print will are on the way although the actual release date hasn't been announced yet.

I'm not sure if anyone from the NBA will try to pull this look off on the court, but you've got to figure if anyone is gonna give it a shot, it may be Nick Young of the Lakers.

Michael Jordan's Flu Kicks Sell for $104,765

via: Sports Illustrated

Preston Truman, a 35-year-old former Jazz ball boy, auctioned off the autographed pair of sneakers worn by Bulls guard Michael Jordan during his famous “Flu Game” for more than $104,000. listed the pair of the black and red Air Jordan 12s, worn during Game 5 of the 1997 Finals, at a starting price of $5,000, with bidding opening on Nov. 18. The auction company’s website indicates that 15 bids were received, and that the final price realized Thursday was $104,765.

According to the auction site, Jordan signed both of the Size 13 shoes, and the lot includes Jordan’s black game socks, too.

I miss the NBA on NBC, nothing better than Marv calling a Knicks vs Bulls game.  The John Tesh theme music, Ahmad Rashad on the sidelines, Bill Walton's sarcasm.  ABC can't even touch NBC's NBA coverage from the 90's.  No word on if Grey Flanel will auction off the sneakers that Charles Smith wore when he missed 17 layups against the Bulls in 1993.  I still hate you Charles!!!  Nothing pisses me off than seeing you back at MSG walking around with a smile on your face.


Michael Jordan plays some beer pong

If you could pick any one person to be your beer pong partner, you HAVE TO go with Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time, right?

Recently, one lucky guy got the opportunity to team up with the six-time NBA champion for some beer pong and good times and it was captured in an Instagram photo. According to the Instragram account of yaypril, the game took place at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Miami. She captioned the photo, "Shootin 3s all day. No big. ๐Ÿ™Œ #jordan #game6"

Did the other team stand any chance against "His Airness" sinking shots while wearing the unreleased low-top version of his Air Jordan XI low "Concord" sneakers? Probably not.  Jordan's team likely took over that fold-up Miami Dolphins peer-pong table and dominated like the Bulls of the '90s.

Sure, Mike's elbow is WAY over the edge of the table in the picture of his shot, but would anyone ever call him out on it? Not likely. Jordan got all the calls in the NBA, so why would beer pong be any different? It's just something the opposition has to deal with.

Partnering up with an icon having the g.o.a.t. on your side for some beer pong? Not a bad way to spend a Florida afternoon. I'm sure Jordan's peer-pong partner will have stories for years to come. Also nice to see that M.J. still knows how to have a blast at 50.
