KD IV "Weatherman" In Detail + On Feet Pics + Paint the Town (VIDEO)

9:22 PM Sole Reaper 3 Comments

Kevin Durant himself said this was his favorite colorway of his latest sig, the Zoom KD IV. That little comment by Durantula made the "Weatherman" pretty much the most hyped up colorway trumping the much talked about "Nerf" colorway. The inspiration behind this loud yet sleek colorway is Durant's fascination with natural disasters and his interest in becoming a weatherman when he was a kid. That's a pretty simple explanation right there, now check out the pics below including on feet pics plus Kevin Durant's latest Nike TV spot.

Remember when Kevin Durant torched the entire basketball world night after night? It was USA's "Team B" powered by reigning MVP Derrick Rose, the monster that is Kevin Love, NBA Champ Tyson Chandler, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant that proved to the world that they didn't need "other" all stars. Durantula went all out recording a scoring spree including a 38 point outburst breaking a Team USA record for most points in a tournament and bringing home the Tournament MVP award. I don't know about you but this team is so good they might even beat USA "Team A". What do you think?

James Yap's Zoom Kobe VI Nike ID

4:41 PM Sole Reaper 27 Comments

Featured in our previous Neat Sneaks! entry, this Zoom Kobe VI ID is certainly a neck breaker. Designed to match his B-Meg uniform, varsity red is used on the scale upper with del sol hits on the Swoosh and shozoku logo. Black is seen on the midsole, heel cup and lining to balance out the bright shade. Finally, we see a varsity red set of laces, red translucent outsole and del sol Nike ID custom hits.

We've recreated James Yap's shoe on Nike ID to give you guys a better look, what do you think?

Pacquiao vs Marquez 24/7 HBO (Episode 4) *fixed*

10:00 AM Sole Reaper 0 Comments

The fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez had a very controversial ending. Many thought that Marquez was the clear winner and that he got robbed. The punch statistics show a different side to the story yet it didn't looked relevant to the tempo and overall feel of the fight. There are indeed a ton of things to consider when you judge a boxing match and most of those things are subjective meaning it's not like basketball wherein your goal is to outscore your opponent with no questions asked. In boxing you have four main criteria- clean punching, ring generalship, effective aggressiveness and defense. All of these things are rather hard to pin point and you can justify different points of view. What did you think of the fight? Let us know what you think about Manny's latest win in the comments section, in the meantime, check out the last part of HBO's mini docu-series.

We've seen this shoe a couple times now but it's too damn beautiful to keep new photos from you guys. Here's a detailed look at the upcoming Nike Zoom KD IV "Nerf". This crisp shot highlights the key aspects of the shoe- the speckled midsole and midfoot strap, the bright red traction pattern and neon green midfoot trim as well as the metallic almost "Eggplant Foam"-like purple toe.

Manny Pacquiao Squeezes out the Victory (PHOTOS)

2:02 AM Sole Reaper 2 Comments

As the fight ended, it was clear in my mind that Manny lost. When the winner was announced, the people around me cheered while my face had that clueless expression for a few minutes. The fight was not close at all and Marquez dictated the bout while Pacman had trouble connecting combinations- this was my initial reaction. With that said, "you have to knock out the champ to beat the champ" or at least inflict pain and although Marquez looked good, Manny wasn't exactly getting hurt and you have to do that to convince the judges. The punch statistics can prove that Pacquiao won the fight, he landed 117 power punches to Marquez's 100 and 176 regular punches to only 138. Clearly the fight wasn't what it looked like. As the UFC puts it, never leave it in the hands of judges. Check out some nice shots from the fight below.

Manny Pacquiao has never been this focused in training in so long we can only think of one reason why- he's gonna knock out Marquez. They've faced before and I think Manny is getting frustrated that he can't keep Marquez down. He looks good today and he looks ready to go!

The USO tour featured a Hoops for Troops game in Hawaii from October 23-28 with big names like Derrick Rose, Joe Johnson, Javale Mcgee, Tyreke Evans and more. They had 1 on 1 games with service members during the week with basketball youth camps and autograph signings as well.

Let's face it, LeBron has become a hated personality. It's kind of odd considering just a few years ago, he was the League's savior. That decline in his public image certainly took a toll on him but the good thing is, LeBron just keeps on coming. On the court and off the court, LeBron is trying his best to rebuild his empire and give back to the people as well. In an awesome collaboration, Penny and LeBron built a basketball facility for the kids of his hometown, Memphis. Check out the press conference below and maybe you'll see LeBron James in a different light.

The Yeezy 2 looks better than the original Yeezys. Yes, they absolutely blow them out of the water with that crocodile styled leather, heel ribs and an all around sleeker design. It's been a month of touring for Kanye and all he's been wearing is his new shoe. Even when he visits supermodels, he still has to wear them. Supermodels + Yeezy 2 + Good Music = Sneakerhead Heaven.

UA Micro G Bloodline (All Colorways + Promo Video)

1:49 PM Sole Reaper 2 Comments

Under Armour really surprised a lot of sneakerheads and performance shoe enthusiasts with the solid models they've released last year. Staying in line with their pocket friendly price point, releasing at $110 is Brandon Jenning's UA Micro G Bloodline. This model utilizes the same molded Micro G cushioning system which is often compared to Nike's Zoom Air technology. That's a really really good place to start since Zoom Air is considered as the best cushioning system ever. Under Armour also got rave reviews for the fit with people claiming that the heel and forefoot lockdown is amazing. Check out the pictures of the UA Micro G Bloodline below as well as the promotional video.

Kobe VI Westchester High School PE (PLUS! All the Westchester Kobe Models!)

11:36 AM Sole Reaper 0 Comments

The Kobe VI is probably the most popular Kobe signature to date. The scale upper is definitely a landmark in terms of design for the entire Kobe line fully adapting the Black Mamba moniker. Now we've seen around 30 to 40 colorways of the Zoom Kobe VI but this is the first time we're seeing the Westchester High School Player Exclusive colorway. It's very similar to the "'Concord Gradient'' Kobe VI in terms of color blocking it just uses the school's shade of red instead of concord. There's still no word on a release date but it certainly looks like these won't hit shelves at all.

3:10 PM Sole Reaper 0 Comments

Yes, it's gonna be a busy Manny Pacquiao month for us with this epic fight staring us directly in the face. This Sunday(Saturday in the US), we'll witness the conclusion to the classic Pacquiao Marquez war. It wasn't clear in the first two fights if Manny can beat Marquez and it definitely doesn't look like Marquez is better than the champ either. So here we are, just days away from the fight that will finally give us a clear winner because whoever wins this one would have won it all in our eyes. Watch Manny Pacquiao, the fan favorite Buboy Fernandez and Alex Ariza talk about the third fight. If that doesn't interest you, just watch Pacquiao pound leather. (Watch the video to see Nike's Special Buboy Fernandez shirt!)

Can Marquez keep up with Pacquiao this time around?

If you're wondering what this collection is, it's the entire "Bulls Home" set being displayed right now in Nike's newest flagship store in Portland. All of the colorways feature a red outsole, all white midsole and upper with red lining and black laces. Which Jordan sig looks best in the "Home" white red and black colorway?

I think the Air Jordan 8 takes this colorway the best, look at that tongue area with the straps, straight butter!

This sneaker deserve all our attentions. We can only guess how they would perform on court but with the Kobe line's track record, it's impossible to fail in that department. I'm sure Eric Avar has perfected this new tech he's sharing with us. I mean, the designer of the Huarache 2K4 and the Zoom Kobe V? No matter how hard we speculate the worst things that could happen, history points to a different direction.

VIDEO: Pacman Trains HARD

9:40 PM Sole Reaper 0 Comments

Manny Pacquiao is an excellent athlete but what sets him miles apart from his opponents is the fact that he trains like no other. Freddie Roach claims that he only trains with 60-65% of his capacity. I don't think his sparring partners feel the same way and it certainly looks like he's going all out. Either way, he is unmatched when it comes to his work ethic and he never underestimates his opponent. That is Manny Pacquiao's advantage and that's the reason why he is the number one pound for pound boxer for several years in a row. Watch this exclusive 3-minute Hi Def footage of him training for his third and final bout against Juan Manuel Marquez after the cut!
