PE's and iD's are the top story this week, as we saw a number of Nike Basketball athletes in their own exclusive or Nike iD selected colorways of today's favorite models. LeBron leads the list with his Carmex-inspired LeBron X in an eye-catching yellow Hyperfuse upper with red accents. Elsewhere, Kevin Durant again laced up his KD V with a orange-to-blue fade on the midsole as well as his bright blue "splattered" PE. Chris Bosh also debuted a new PE this past week, wearing a red, black and yellow Air Max Hyperposite.
A number of nice iD's were seen this week including Kobe 8 System pairs worn by DeMar DeRozan and Drew Gooden, a metallic silver KD V from Bradley Beal, and a nice Pistons-red pair of the KD V from Greg Monroe.
Making retro model headlines this week are Al-Farouq Aminu in the Air Force 180 Mid, Deron Williams in the Air Flight '89, Paul George in the Air Flight One, and two Air Foampsoite One sightings from P.J. Tucker in the new "Suns" version and Rudy Gay in the metallic red colorway.
