Nike Kobe Zoom 8 EXT
First up, DJ Skee takes a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 EXT. This particular pair comes in a smooth upper University Red suede color way with Court Purple accents on the inside and the outer sole. The popular Kobe model has a nice lifestyle twist as its primary purpose is more concerned with style and appealing aesthetics rather than performance on the court. Celebrating the Chinese New Year theme of the year of the snake, the sneaker features hints of gold along the shoe’s embroidered Nike swoosh, Shozoku tongue and heel tab logo, and lace tips. The sneaker is light weight and maintains quality features for added support like the mid-foot carbon fiber shank plate.
Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star
The next popular pair of kicks DJ Skee shares with sneaker heads is the Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star’s. Loud and in your face, the alien themed sneakers are composed of a bright and total crimson color way with Spirit Turquoise accents. Added details such as the alien-like symbols found on the sneaker’s swoosh, orange leather along the inner heel, and crimson Kobe signature on the outer heel make it easy to understand why these beauties are highly sought after. Not to be forgotten, the sock lining and inner sole stay true to the intergalactic “Area 72” theme and sport vibrant space-like imagery. The mid sole of the shoes come in white and showcases somewhat of a rugged texture. A nice carbon fiber plate can also be found along the mid-foot of the sole for added foot support.
Nike Kobe Zoom 8 Duke Edition
Showcasing an exclusive Duke player color way, DJ Skee next sets his sights on the Kobe Nike Zoom 8. The blue devils were blessed with a nice black and white color way that features hints of the team’s signature blue along the shoe’s midsole, inner lining and heel clip. For added detail, Duke’s iron “D” covers the tongue of the shoe in white while the traditional Shozoku logo is located on the outer heel next to Kobe’s signature. The upper portion of the sneaker is also composed of a very nice black camo that truly compliments this Duke exclusive color way the most.
Nike Zoom 4 Duke Edition (DJ Skee Exclusive)
Continuing with this episode’s Kobe/NCAA Tournament theme, DJ Skee saves the best for last with a special pair of Nike Kobe Zoom 4 Duke Editions. Skee shares with sneaker heads a pair of exclusive game worn Zoom 4’s that happen to be signed by the entire Duke team. Not available to the public for retail purchase, the home color way comes in a primarily white upper with eye catching blue and black accents. The infamous Duke iron “D” can be found on the back of the heel just above Kobe’s 24 logo which is embedded within a black crock material along the heel clip. Sporting speckled blue laces, a black bottom sole, and black Nike swoosh’s with blue trimming these exclusives are easily embraced by sneaker enthusiasts as certified heat.
The Easter edition KD V releases at select Nike Basketball retailers this Saturday, March 30th. This Version of the KD V is inspired by the tradition of Easter egg decorating features a colorful Turquoise Blue Hyperfuse upper with accents in ‘Bright Citrus’ orange. A light minty green is also seen on the tongue and outsole. To go along with the Easter egg theme, speckled patterns are seen on the Swooshes and visible Air Max unit.
It’s 2013 and the Jordan Spiz’ike is still running strong and continues to remain Jordan Brand’s most popular hybrid model. Dubbed “Poison Green”, these Spiz’kes take on a Easter-inspired colorway that comes just in time for the sunny Spring season. Made from smooth suede and patent leather materials, this style is definitely unlike anything we’ve seen before. Highlighted by its stealth and poison green accents, these kicks are brightened up by additional hits of university blue, blitz blue, yellow, and a subtle vivid sulpher tone.
Nike released Barkley Posite Max “Eggplant” on March 23rd. Building upon the silhouette’s successful debut as a part of this year’s All-Star “Area 72″ collection, the Barkley Posite Max is set to return this weekend in a brand new “Eggplant” colorway inspired by the classic edition of the Foamposite One. Pairing an Eggplant Foamposite upper with black nubuck and mesh across the upper, the kicks feature additional details like a speckled Max Air unit, a glow-in-the-dark outsole, and turquoise accents throughout. What really sets these off, however, is the iridescent sheen applied to the entirety of the Foamposite shell — giving the Barkley-inspired hybrid a pearlescent, color-changing aspect reminiscent of last year’s “Invisibility Cloak” Kobe VII from Nike Basketball.
Skee TV keeps it coming with new visuals for the latest episode of DJ Skee’s series The Skee Locker. In this episode, Skee unboxes and reviews the highly anticipated Air Jordan Retro XIII and Air Jordan Retro I “He Got Game” color way.
Releasing later this month, Jordan retros the “He Got Game” XIII model for sneaker heads everywhere. This color way of the XIII’s acquires its nickname from Spike Lee’s 1998 film He Got Game where Denzel Washington’s character wears them. For this year’s 2013 retro, the upper portion of the sneaker is composed of a quality white leather while the toe box sports an equally fine black leather. Another classic Tinker Hatfield concept, the XIII’s paw print out sole and Jumpman eye-like hologram design, stand out as noteworthy features. Nice black suede can also be found along the mid sole, rear, and at each side of the shoe. These sneakers also come with simple but eye appealing red accents along the bottom sole and Jumpman logo across the tongue.
Continuing with the “He Got Game” style and color way, Jordan drops another version of the classic Air Jordan 1 Retro ’97. With clear hints of the XIII model along the mid upper, the sneaker comes in a classic white, while the mid sole sports black with red stitching. The gym red out sole also comes through and provides a simple yet effective accent along the bottom. Other hints of black can be found along the inner heel, laces, rear Jumpman logo, and tongue. An Air Jordan Hologram and Nike logo pull everything together for final touches on a classic sneaker with a new look.

Skee TV presents the latest episode of the Skee Locker. DJ Skee brings viewers into the Skee Lodge and gives them a detailed looked at Jordan’s newest XX8 model in camo blue and the upcoming grey, yellow, and red Spizkie color way.
Always one to push the boundaries in athletic footwear, Jordan drops their newest model with the release of the XX8’s. In this episode, DJ Skee shows off the new blue camo color way which recently released alongside a yellow and red color pack. Designed to mimic similar features found in sprinting shoes, the XX8’s are extremely light but still come packed with new technology for added support. The high performance sneaker’s external stretchy shroud comes with a zipper for added snug and stands out against a vibrant accent. On the inside, a nice light grey mesh and fuse-like material make up the sneaker. One of the more important highlights is the translucent rubber out sole which provides top notch grip. The bottom also comes equipped with a middle carbon fiber plate for less resistance and more natural movement of the foot. Molded protective carbon fiber can also be found along the heel tabs and gives buyer’s support for quick cuts on the court.
Standing out as one of the more popular Jordan hybrids, the new “3M” Spizike’s are set to drop this March. The upper portion of the shoe is made up of dark grey or charcoal suede with bright yellow stitching to match the side wings. Silver 3M material can also be found along the sneakers front and side mudguard, tongue lace cover and below the famous Spike Lee Brooklyn logo along the back heel. Always a must, this Spizike model comes equipped with a light metallic silver elephant print that blends nicely with the sneaker’s 3M portions. Red hints are featured on the lace holders and jumpman logo across the tongue, while yellow accents appear along the heel air bubble and inner sock lining. A simple black tongue and black laces attempt to pull everything together from the front.
