The Fourth of July came and left with a bang. While the Nike Basketball collection dropped their annual Independence Day pack at the end of June, a ton of amazing shoes came out. From revolutionized classics to new technology July was a perfect month to kick off the second half of 2015. Peep our favorite kicks from July:
5. Converse Chuck Taylor II
After 98 years, the Converse Chuck Taylors got revamped. With Nike's help, they were able to add Lunarlon cushioning to the iconic and OG look of the Chucks. Popular? They sold out within a day off its official website.
4. Reebok Question Low
One of the most iconic crossovers happened in this colorway. Although, the shoes lost its mid top, it still features the all white leather upper with the red accents and toe. Quietly dropping, the Question Lows (weird to say) brings back a ton of memories.
3. Reebok Ventilator "Kendrick Lamar" "Neutral"
Kendrick Lamar has been the hot ticket item. From his sold out shows to his influence with Reebok, he's been doing great for them. The Ventilators got a Kendrick Lamar touch with his creations. While he's trying to keep the community together, the heels feature RED and BLUE to unite the Bloods and Crips gangs. In Rodney King's words, Can't we all just get along? Kendrick is using his voice to bring peace for the greater good of the community.
2. Under Armour Curry One "SC30 Select Camp"
Stephen Curry does it again. Under Armour websites were able to hold the traffic but a ton of fans were left unsatisfied. They sold out instantly as well as the All-American gold colorway. These feature a Miami Dolphin teal and orange but scream flashy.
1. Nike Zoom Soldier FLYEASE
They may look just like LeBron Soldier 8s but these feature a dynamic wrap around zipper. The easy acccess helps those who have trouble getting their shoes on. Matthew Waltzer gained media attention when Nike released the story behind the FLYEASE. Starting with a letter and a wish, Matthew has revolutionalized the way Nike sees athletes. They do say "If you have a body, you're an athlete."
