Inside Michael Jordan's High School Gym: A Trip to Wilmington, NC
 
04:10
We were invited to the opening ceremony of the gym and took a deeper look into the story of Jordan. Not the Michael Jordan we all know that won titles and gold medals, but the "Jordan" before that Jordan. The Jordan that had math class and was known to crack a few jokes. The Jordan that eventually became the greatest player of all time Subscribe to Kustoo!: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 Follow Jacques on Twitter: http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo Follow Jacques on Instagram: http://bit.ly/19jV3FT Jacques 'Kustoo' Slade highlights daily updates and reviews on the best performance, lifestyle, and retro sneakers in Home of Today in Sneaks and The Week in Sneaks.

adidas Gazelle: Everything You Should Know

SNAPCHAT ► https://www.snapchat.com/add/kustoo (@Kustoo) Cop a pair of adidas Gazelles here: http://www.finishline.com/store/shop/_/N-/Ntt-gazelle?cmp=sm-inf-kustoo Everything You Need To Know About The Adidas Gazelle ►SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 TWITTER ► http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo INSTA ► http://bit.ly/19jV3FT Whats makes a shoe a classic, an icon, or staple that should be in every collection? Honestly, that is a hard question to answer, but I think I might have something that fits the bill in all three of those categories. I am Jacques Slade and today I bring you everything you need to know about the adidas Gazelle. For those unfamiliar with the Gazelle, let’s go back in history a bit. The model was first launched back in 1966 and is rumored to be named after Olympic athlete Wilma Rudolph who they called the Black Gazelle after winning 3 gold medals at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. That has yet to be confirmed, but it is a good place to start. See when the Gazelle was originally launched, it was released in 2 versions. One was red and one was blue. Back then, at least with this model, the colors weren’t there just to tell a story, the represented a different version of the same shoe. The differences were mostly based on the outsole of the shoe with the red being made for outdoor training and the blue made for indoor training. In addition to the outsole, the Gazelle was also the 3 Stripes’ first shoe made of suede or as they called it back then, kangaroo velour. Apparently to some folks, this was a big deal because soon after the shoe launched, it became one of the hottest shoes in the adidas line-up. From major sports events to just shoe to rock on the streets, the Gazelle was the people’s choice and adidas even decided to update the outsole to a more universal look in 1972. The new hexagonal shaped outsole helped officially make the Gazelle, the “training shoes” to get. Fast forward to the 80s and 90s, and adidas continued to tweak the look and feel of the Gazelle to fit the time. From introducing new colorways of the shoe, to adding padding to the ankle, or changing the heel shape, the look and feel of the shoe stayed mainly the same. That brings us to the pairs you see here. Though the Gazelle is mainly the same, it has transitioned to two version of the shoe. Let’s call them the Gazelle and the Gazelle OG. The Gazelle OG is just as the name implies, true to the original look of the shoe. The Gazelle, though not much different from the original does have a few changes. Changes such as the slightly longer tongue. This could be a result of the longer toe box, the OG’s toe box is very short. In addition to the tongue, the Gazelle is bit more streamlined than the OG. The OG looks “fatter” by comparison. A small difference, yes, but it also plays a part in how you rock these at the end of the day. Another change, the heel. The Heel of the Gazelle is shaped to hug the heel and is more contoured to the shape of the foot. The OG on the other hand only slight wraps the heel which makes it easier to slip them on. For me, the smoother clean look of the Gazelle win over the OG which is why I’ll probably be grabbing a few of these colors this summer. Adidas Originals has a rich heritage when it comes to kicks and the Gazelle is one of the many that have stood the test of time to reach the levels of a classic sneaker. I mean think about it, this shoe was originally launched almost 50 years ago and you can still see people rocking these like they just dropped yesterday. So what do you guys think of the adidas Gazelle? Is the retro vibe right? Did adidas do the model justice with the latest update to colors on the upper? Let me know your thoughts below and hit that thumbs up button to help share knowledge. I want to give a shoutout to Finish Line who helped make this video happen, I am your host Jacques Slade this is Everything You Need To Know About the adidas Originals Gazelle and as always, I appreciate you.

UNBOXING: IS The Air JORDAN 11 CONCORD Worth The Hype??
 
06:25
Why are so many people hyped bout the Air Jordan 11 "Concord" and calling it their GRAIL? ►SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 SNAPCHAT ► @Kustoo TWITTER ► http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo INSTA ► http://bit.ly/19jV3FT Air Jordan 11: Behind the Design If you’ve been around twitter, IG, Snap, Facebook, do people still use facebook? Anyway, If you’ve been on social media, you’ve heard more than enough people say that that Air Jordan 11 is their grail or even that they really love this shoe. But why? Well, here everything you need to know and you can tell me if any of this even matters. Lets go. Starting with design of the shoe, Tinker Hatfield, the man who had designed almost every Jordan since the 3, actually designed the shoe in secret. Nike, at the time, wasn’t sure that Mike would be returning and thought the Jordan line would be over. Tinker though that even if Mike was really done playing basketball, that he had a large enough following and a big enough name that people would buy his kicks regardless. One of the key elements of the shoe is the patent leather. It honestly changed they way that sneakers were made at the time. Tinker, watching game tape of Michael playing, happened to notice that Mike would roll over the top of his shoes when changing direction, and this slowed him down. Patent leather was stronger and could withstand the force of the change. Often called the mudguard, the patent leather actually served two purposes. Tinker wanted to create something that looked good both on and off the court for Mike. Rumor has it, that MJ wanted something he could wear with a suit, and the patent leather fit the bill. That brings us to the upper. A new nylon ballistic mesh was added that lead up to the padded collar. Called cordura nylon or sometimes cordura mesh, the material is ultra-lightweight and manages to maintains its strength, despite its elasticity. Tinker also included a webbing around the midfoot that adheres to the shape of your foot. It works with your foot to keep you locked in. MJ introd the popular Concord Colorway of the Jordan 11 in the playoffs in 1995 and not many people know this, but he was fined for wearing them. Back then, your shoes had to better match your uniform and MJ had to pay the fine for 2 games. Fun fact, for game 3 of the playoffs, he wore the Air Flight One also known as Penny Hardaway’s shoe and but he cut off Penny’s logo on the heel tab. Talk about being petty Double Fun fact, when he wore these in the playoffs in 1995, Jordan and the Bulls lost to the Orlando Magic, but you don’t often hear about that part. But to be fair, Jordan also wore them in the playoffs in 1996 which started their second 3-Peat so can you really complain? When it comes to the Air Jordan 11, they have been dropping during the holiday season since 2009. Technically it was 2008 when the countdown pack dropped in December, but as a single sneaker, it was 2009 with the Space Jam retro, which retro’d again last year. Since the shoes launch, Tinker, a legend in his own right, has called the Jordan 11 his favorite design. As for Michael, he feels the same way. The Bulls did go 72-10 that year, and he won the MVP for the Finals, regular season, and the all-star game. Not to mention his fourth NBA championship. So it the design that makes it a grail, is it Tinker, is the carbon fiber shank plate? Is it Michael Jordan, or is it a mix of all those things. Either way, this is easily one of the most influential if not the most loved sneaker of the modern era. And that goes for those that are sneakerheads and those that aren’t. Especially when it comes to this Concord Colorway. But does that make it your grail? Let me know what you think about the Air Jordan 11 below and also, if you follow me over on IG, I’m actually giving away a pair of these. Just look for a post with a pic of the box wrapped up like a christmas present. Details will be on that post. As always, I appreciate you.

NIKE KYRIE 1: Everything You Need To Know
 
04:04
Today in New York City, Nike Basketball and Kyrie Irving unveiled the Nike Kyrie 1. Here is everything you need to know about the shoe. Subscribe to Kustoo!: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 ***Click for Details below!*** See more on Kustoo.com: http://bit.ly/16MIRN0 Follow Jacques on Twitter: http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo Follow Jacques on Instagram: http://bit.ly/19jV3FT Script: What’s up guys, it Jacques Slade and today, Nike Basketball unveiled Kyrie Irving’s first signature shoe, the Nike Kyrie 1. Here is everything you need to know: As you’ve probably heard all week, Nike Basketball takes pride in their signature shoes and the number of athletes with a signature basketball shoe is only 19. Kyrie actually makes it 20. Tonight, along with Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, and Penny Hardaway, we got our first look at the shoe. Lets talk about the details first, the shoe is scheduled to launch on December 23 in the Dream colorway which is the black pair, and the Deceptive Red pair will launch on January 10. Pricing is $110. If you want to make our own, the Kyrie 1 is on NIKEiD right now for $155. So lets talk about design and technology. As you can see, the Kyrie 1 is doesn’t have your typical design and features with aggressive lines and an almost cage like upper. Designed by Leo Chang and is team, the goal was to create a silhouette that could match Irving’s tremendous speed and quickness..it still needed to be light, bold and responsive, and have the best traction Nike Basketball could develop for Irving’s prolific first step. This led to 3 primary benefits on the Kyrie 1...Cushioning, traction, and support. For cushioning, Nike basketball went with Nike Zoom in the forefoot and phylon in the heel. As a point guard, the cushioning in the forefoot which is better than the heel because he plays more on his toes. Nike has been really good at designing shoes for a position and this is another example of they way they can fine tune a shoe to a style of play. As a quick guard, Kyrie needs to have his traction on point more than any other position. Nike is using what thy are calling a 360-degree dynamic traction which looks a bit more jagged than your traditional herringbone and it also rolls up on the midsole a bit in the back and all the way up to the upper at the toe. Hopefully it is a durable upper. I can see people getting some runs in outside in these. Finally, we come to the upper. Starting at the heel, we see an angled heel counter that provides support, but it doesn’t look like it is meant to lock him down as it is to support him. On the rest of the upper, Nike Basketball mixes hyperfuse and mesh to keep the shoe durable, but also keeping it breatheable as well. On the design side, the Kyrie 1 is definitley a bit more abstract than your normal signature shoe, but I like it. The jagged lines and detailing reminds me of Kyrie’s game and fit in with his style of play. As most of you know. Kyrie’s father played professionally in Australia, and the wrapped traction near the toe and heel counter with architectural angles are both inspired by the Sydney Opera House. Kyrie’s logo, which you see on the tongue represents his inner strength and hunger to learn. His signature and the #2 are on the shoe and are actually in Kyrie’s penmanship. The letters “JBY” are on the outsole behind his logo and stand for Just Be You. A motto Kyrie tries to live by and something I agree with wholeheartedly. And finally, Kyrie’s mother passed when he was 4 and her name and the date of her passing are included on the outsole of the shoe as well. One of the quotes Nike used from Kyrie was that “As a kid, imagining that I’d be in the Nike family with my own shoe was something that seemed almost unattainable.” “Now that I’ve received the KYRIE 1 I’m honored to represent Nike and its next generation of players.” To me that speaks to Kyrie’s hungry and humble attitude and Nike explored that with the bold design of the shoe. I had a few people tweet me that Kyrie doesn’t deserve a shoe. I think he is the perfect guy. He is hungry, he works hard, and he has respect for that that came before him. I can respect that and can’t wait to get some runs in in his new shoe. The Nike Kyrie 1 is available now on NIKEiD for $155 and will be hitting North America on the 23rd for $110 in the dream colorway. If you are looking for the red color, that one launches globally on January 10. Let me know what you think about the Kyrie 1 in the comments. Of course you should also like and subscribe if you like what you see. I am your host Jacques Slade, this is everything you should know about the Kyrie 1 and as always, I appreciate you. I’ll see you soon, peace.

Without wasting anytime, the first thing you will notice about the shoe is the height. While Kobe did start going low on Kobe 4, the Kobe 11 drops the shoe even lower. The inspiration started back the with soccer shoes and continues today, no need to worry though as the heel counter is just as strong as ever. The next thing you will notice about the shoe is the outsole. The outsole is fully transparent in parts and has been designed to work on a variety of surfaces. While that does seem like a small thing, you can literally see through to the midsole which brings us to the next part of the shoe, the drop in midsole. Long time fans of the Kobe line will remember the drop-in Lunar midsole for the Kobe 7. It returns again on the Kobe XI but this time it has been segmented at the toe to give a more natural feel. In addition to the Lunar, Nike has also includes a Zoom unit at the heel which provides some responsiveness but also give some impact protection. All of which can be seen through the outsole. Moving on to the upper, Nike makes Flyknit official with the Kobe XI and it will launch alongside the first colorway of the shoe. Taking into account the needs and movements of a basketball player, the Flyknit has been updated to include TPU or Thermoplastic Polyurethane. By using this in addition to the tradition yarn used in Flyknit, it give the material a superior strength that can stand the rigors of the basketball court. In essence, the layer that that was on the Kobe 9 and 10 are gone and the new version of Flyknit provides the lock-down that you need. In total, we have a new outsole, the drop in Lunar midsole with Zoom at the heel, and a reconstructed version of Flyknit. As far as launch dates go, expect the first colorway, dubbed achilles heel, to release on January 9th for $200 and the second Black and white colorway you saw to release on January 27th. So let me know what you guys think about the Kobe XI down below I am Jacques Slade, Live from the Nike Vault in Los Angeles and as always, I appreciate you. I’ll see you soon.

Jordan Brand x Slam Dunk: Everything You Need to Know

The full story behind Jordan Brand and the Manga Slam Dunk created by Takehiko Inoue. Subscribe to Kustoo!: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 ***Click for Details below!*** Follow Jacques on Twitter: http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo Follow Jacques on Instagram: http://bit.ly/19jV3FT Source: http://www.kustoo.com/2014/10/16/air-jordan-slam-dunk-collection-revealed/ Full Story: By now, most of you have seen the new Jordan and Slam Dunk collection that is set to release in Asian Markets this week and globally on November 1. I did a little digging, and here is everything you need to know about the collaboration. Lets start with manga, according to wikipedia, Manga are comics created in Japan, or by Japanese creators in the Japanese language, conforming to a style developed in Japan in the late 19th century. What does this have to do with sneakers, well you have to look no further than manga artist, Takehiko Inoue. A big fan of the game of basketball, Mr. Inoue created a manga called Slam Dunk back in 1990. Before we get into the comic, lets talk about basketball a little bit. In the 80s, basketball started to become a global phenomenon. Led by stars like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, the league was really starting to grow. In the late 80s, Jordan was starting to come into his own and became the face of the league on a global scale. This brings us back to Mr. Inoue and his Manga, Slam Dunk. Being a fan of basketball he was obviously a fan of Jordan and the story of his main character, Hanamichi Sakuragi parallels jordan’s in certain ways. Both had a natural talent in the game of basketball which later turned them into all-stars. Fast forward to 2014, the Slam Dunk series ended in 1996, though, it was made into anime and films after that. For this collaboration, Jordan Brand and Mr. Inoue took a two prong approach to the story focusing on the legacy of Sakuragi and where the story has gone since it stopped in 1996. Of course the best way to do that was to include a shoe from the past, the air Jordan 6, and a shoe from the present, the Jordan Super.Fly 3. This enabled the story to continue and allowed Mr. Inoue to bring Sakuragi to 2014 From the box to the actual shoe, the Jordan 6 focuses soley on the past. The illustrations are all taken from the 31-Volume Manga series and applied over the red upper. According to Jordan Brand, the images highlight moments from the series, paying tribute to the legacy of Sakuragi’s personal growth and on-court talent. The fact that they used the VI is no coincidence, I did a quick search on the web for the series and found this DVD cover with Sakuragi wearing the Carmine Air Jordan 6. That 10 is what we see on the heel of the shoe. That jersey looks pretty familiar as well. For the Super.Fly 3, the collaboration takes a step into the present and picks up 18 years later. The shoe is in essence the next chapter in the story. Mr. Inoue says that he’d imagine Sakuragi was still alive somewhere, recovering from injury and working out while continuing to think of himself as “the genius” he once was in high school basketball. That story line is continued on the Super.Fly 3 in all new illustractions that will never be published. The story is extended to the box as well with brand new illustration that continue the story of Slam Dunk. The black, red, and white upper go perfectly with Sakuragi’s old jersey. I personally think it was interesting that they used the Super.Fly 3 to continue the story considering that is Blake’s shoe and he is known for Slam Dunking in a sense. The collection doesn’t stop at the shoes, Jordan Brand has included 2 t-shirts and a hat as well that pull illustrations from the series and the fictional Shohoku high school team. Both the Jordan 6 and the Super.Fly 3 release on the 18 in Asian markets and will hit the US on November 1 for $250 and $185 respectively.

NIKE MAG 2015: 5 Things You Should Know
 
02:49
5 Thing You Should Know About the Official Nike Mag for 2015. Find me SNAPCHAT ► Kustoo ►SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 TWITTER ► http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo INSTA ► http://bit.ly/19jV3FT What’s Up guys, I am Jacques Slade and it finally happened. Nike officially gave us a look at the Nike Mag from Back to the Future worn by MIchael J Fox in the year 2015. Here are the 5 things you need to know. First, The shoes are real. I know there was a lot of speculation about them, but they were officially revealed today with press release and a media blitz that will end with Michael J. Fox making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. He even sent out an image of the shoes on his foundation’s twitter account. Second, the shoe does have power laces unlike like the prop version of the shoe in the movie. The movie version was created using movie magic, This version is 100% real and you can hear the shoe lacing up in this video from Fox’s foundation Facebook page. Third, the shoes are going to be auctioned off like the 2011 version of the Nike Mag with the money also going to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Last time they earned 9.4 million. This time, Nike plans to push the number even higher. Fourth, the auctions for the shoes is not set to happen till Spring 2016. There wasn’t an exact date announced, so that could mean anytime between Jan through March. Considering some of the 2011 pairs went for around $5000, I’d expect these pairs to push that number up significantly. Fifth, Nike is planning to use the self-lacing technology in more than just the NIke Mag. In a press release today, Nike President and CEO Mark Parker said ““We started creating something for fiction and we turned it into fact, inventing a new technology that will benefit all athletes.” he also said “By imagining the future, we create it. Product that comes alive, with on-demand comfort and support when you need, product that senses you and adapts to you is right around the corner,” However, the most enlighting part of the press release was a line that I think a few people skipped over. “But this is just the first iteration.” I won’t guess what that means, but sounds like there is a bit more coming down the pipeline. Okay, so what do you think about all of this? Let me know in the comments down below. And if you are lost and need some context to the Nike Mag, check out the link in the description or up above to see what all the hype is about.

LeBron 13 Hands-On & First Impressions
 
04:21
A unboxing and first look at the Nike LeBron 13 plus just about everything you need to know before you pick up your first pair. Find me SNAPCHAT ► Kustoo ►SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/user/kustoo?sub_confirmation=1 TWITTER ► http://bit.ly/11Nw0oo INSTA ► http://bit.ly/19jV3FT LeBron 12 Hands-On: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X48SrOWHPk Nike LeBron 13 Nike Basketball and LeBron James officially announced the LeBron 13 in Akron, Ohio this past weekend. I managed to get my hands on a pair and wanted to give you a good look and update you with a few things you should know before you pick up your pair. What’s up guys its Jacques Slade and the first thing you should know is that the LeBron 13 starts with the cushioning. Designed by Jason Petrie, the LeBron 13 kept the hexagonal pads that were introduced on the LeBron 12, however the cushioning is a bit different. Both the forefoot and the heel have bigger pads that should give you more protection when landing and also provide a slightly softer feel than last year. The pads are said to provide 75% more responsiveness than last year with greater focus on the forefoot due to a carved out area to give you greater contact with the Zoom Air. Next up is the perception that has stuck with the LeBron line the last few years that the shoe is bulky and heavy. When compared to last year’s model, the LeBron 13 is wider and just touch longer than the 12. The upper features a 1-piece booty construction that provides a sock like fit which I was say is more comfortable than the 12. From teh Midfoot to the toe the lock down is better. Like the 12, the tongue is attached to prevent it from moving side to side. Flywire is there as well which you should feel more with the better fitting booty construction and the mesh overlay. Despite being a bit bigger, Nike has shaved an ounce off the total weight which should help over the course of a game. They also made it easier to lace up. The 12 has a pair of eyelets just below the collar and I always had trouble getting the lace to tighten or loosen up in that area. Other performance details include the mid-foot TPU shank to help with your heel to toe transition and it actually wraps up around the lateral and medial side of the foot to add more stability. Hyperposite panel on the upper are all about durability. LeBron’s style of play can be rough on a pair of shoes and the panel helps deter that abuse while also providing him with some protection. Speaking of protection, for you toe draggers out there, you’ll be happy to know you have a bit of synthetic to run through on the toe as well. There is also the asymmetrical lacing which is supposed to help with lock down and provides less irritation as it works with the contours of your foot. And finally we have pricing and release dates. The LeBron 13 is scheduled to release in China this weekend but it will hit the US starting on October 10 in the written in the stars colorway for $200. Like last year, there are several colorways scheduled to drop through the end of the year, with the Halloween and Home colorways getting a lot of buzz, not to mention the bumble bee colorway he wore to the Cav’s media day. If you don’t want to wait till then, the LeBron 13 NIKEiD today and you can customize your pair for $245. From the short time I have had them, I would say they have better cushioning, lighter, a bit wider, a bit longer, and on overall better fit than last year. Of course I’ll have to get the on the court to give you my final thoughts, but that is just a quick review. Let me know in the comments if there is anything in particular you want to know about the shoe. Otherwise, thanks for watching and I’ll see you all soon. I appreciate you, Peace.

This channel has sneaker collections from Nike, Jordan, adidas, Yeezy, Reebok, Under Armour and more. He also does sneaker reviews, sneaker shopping, performance reviews, and sneaker history. He also loves technology, music, and pop culture and often mixes the three with sneaker to create one of the few "sneaker" channels that bridges the gap.
