Eastbay Presents: Sneaker Watch
See what everyone around the league has been wearing.
words_Nick DePaula As always, it was an eventful night of sneaker sightings from throughout the league, as we saw Melo break out a re-designed version of his signature shoe, NIKE iD once again on full display, the Hyperize still on the feet of many players and even a surprise signature sighting towards the end. Check it out! Carmelo Anthony debuted the Future Sole Melo M6 at home against the Thunder. For more info on the shoe designed by 17-year-old Future Sole winner Austin Jermacans, check out the post HERE. In Milwaukee, Brandon Jennings broke out a new colorway of his Under Armour Prototype BB II, this time a White/Silver/Red version. Marcus Thornton, wearing Hyperdunk iDs, takes it right at OJ Mayo, in the Nike Air Max Rise. In the ATL, Louis Williams (who usually wears Retro XIIs) was seen in a pair of blue based Zoom Sharkley iDs. Coincidentally, Joe Johnson went back to his Retro XII PEs that he's lately taken a liking to. Brandon Roy, in the Air Max Rise, and Juwan Howard, wearing the Jordan All Day, celebrate during their win at home against the Pacers. Why on earth the Kings' mascot Slamson is in this picture -- I have no idea. With all of the recent controversy surrounding the Detroit Pistons trainer banishing the Nike Hyperize for the team's guards, of course the running joke has been that Grant Hill is currently wearing the Hyperize. It turns out that the Suns, who by the way, are often noted as an organization that has a tremendous medical staff, have all been wearing the Hyperize lately. Here's a good look at the Zoom Kobe V iDs that Channing Frye has been wearing. The stars of the game, including Steve Nash back in the Cradle Rock Low, Amar'e Stoudemire in the aforementioned Hyperize, and Baron Davis in the Li-Ning BD Doom. Eric Gordon has quietly been seen in a clean White/Red patent leather version of the adidas TS Supernatural Creator, which is available now at Champs Sports, sans the Clippers logo of course, which can be found on the medial midfoot of Gordon's pair. In Orlando, Jameer Nelson shows off a rare Reebok sighting in the Talkin' Krazy II. Rashard Lewis, in the Huarache 2010, absolutely denies this weak layup attempt by Stephen Curry. And here's two shoes we forgot to highlight last week, as in Houston it was a battle of point guards between Aaron Brooks and Jason Williams. While I can't stand the brutal Rockets alternate jerseys, the Hyperdunk Low that Brooks has been wearing work surprisingly well. Williams, who all season long has been in the Nike Blue Chip II, switched it up for the night, wearing the Air Max LeBron VII. Lastly -- OUCH.
