Nike Kobe AD Black/Purple

This colorway of Nike Kobe AD is Lakers ready. With the signing of Lebron to the Lakers along with some key players, the team is automatically visible once again in the radar. Also, you can't have a Kobe shoe without having a Laker-themed colorway even though he's retired. It just shows that the Black Mamba's legacy lives on. Going back to the colorway, black upper with vivid purple hits on the laces, brandings on the tongue, toe box, heel counter and outsoles gives the shoe some pop. The grey accents balances everything out together with the small hints of yellow. Techwise, phylon foam with Zoom Air in the heel was used which isn't new to Nike's basketball models, so if you prefer that setup, then you might want to consider these as well. You can grab this at the Intersports store in Vertis North.











adiads Pro Bounce Low Andrew Wiggins PE

More Pro Bounce Low PEs, Hooray!!! This time, Timberwolves big man, Andrew Wiggins. Sporting a black knit upper, red accents can be see on the 3 stripes branding, laces, and torsion plate. On the tongue up front, it says AW and behind it says Canada. Also, there are some maple leaf graphics on the heel, inner linings of the shoe, as well as underneath on the translucent outsole reppin Canada. In case you don't know yet, Wiggins is from Canada and there are even some colorways of previous adidas shoes where there are Canada references on the design. The color scheme might be far from the Minnesota Timberwolves colorway, but word is out that the league is somewhat more lenient to players rocking different colors of kicks that are different from their teams colors, so we'll have to see if he will play in them in an actual game. When that happens, he could also rep the "Minnesota Timberbulls" (just kidding). Anyway, this colorway is simple and could pass as a team shoe for some schools. The said colorway is available now at adidas Trinoma for the same price as the regular released lows (Php 5,800 if I'm not mistaken).








Air Jordan 13 Tinker spotted at Athlete's Foot

Okay, I'm surprised when I saw these on the store shelves just because I simply forgot about them. It was months ago when I blogged about it and when I spotted the silhouette just from a distance, I immediately went inside the store to check them out. When I saw them in photos back then, it does look good and then seeing them in actuality really made me say in my mind, "Yep, it does look good." The materials sure isn't updated with mesh and leather combined being used on the upper. But the look, it does make it look more modern since the Air Jordan 13's shape is really retro-looking. I am not knocking those because those are great. It's just that these is more modern-looking at least in my opinion. The familiar midsole/outsole tooling kinda reminds you of the Air Jordan 13 and of course the dimpling look in the upper. But aside from that, it looks like it could be a stand alone shoe. For performance, I've learned that these have Zoom Air in the heel and nothing special (just phylon) in the forefoot so I figure that it's better to say that just in case you are wondering if they contain the same setup as the 13s. If you think, you'll be okay with that setup, then I guess you would enjoy playing in them. But if you are looking for something better in forefoot, then I guess you have to look elsewhere. I have seen two colorways at the Athlete's Foot store in Vertis North and I think the one with white leather panels look better just for the simplest reason that it somewhat bridges the gap between the past and the present just from aesthetics alone. So if you want to grab a pair, then just head over there since it was just only yesterday late afternoon when I saw them so I'm pretty sure there are still stocks left. The shoe














adidas Pro Bounce Brandon Ingram PE

Yes, we are getting some PE's for the adidas Pro Bounce Low. This is one is from Lakers rising star, Brandon Ingram. For this particular colorway, this has more of a Minneapolis Lakers vibe or the retro team of the Lakers where their team color consists of a light shade of blue with yellow hits. Knit upper comprised the shoe's upper in light blue with white hits. White 3 stripes logo can be seen as well and the yellow can be seen on the tongue branding, inner lining of the shoe, torsion plate and in the outsole. Speaking of the shoe's tongue, you can see BI on the front of the tongue and inside it says Brandon Ingram making it more personal. As the name suggest, Bounce cushion was used in this model and this silhouette might be the go-to for adidas' athletes. Are we expecting more PEs to drop in the store shelves? Hopefully yes so stay tuned here at Analykix, as I will be posting them once I spotted them in stores. This colorway was spotted at the adidas store in Trinoma.







LeBron Witness III

LeBron will always be grounded to his roots wherever he goes. And this particular shoe, the LeBron Witness III is a testament of it. The shoe features textile upper which makes it light, yet supportive and most importantly comfortable. The silhouette looks slim and looks good actually. Different textures on the upper can be seen as it gives the right amount support and flexibility wherever you need it. Cushioning is made up of Phylon midsole with a full-length encapsulated Nike Air unit. It's been a long time since we see this being implemented again, since we used to either straight foams or with some Zoom Air setup combined. At the bottom is a solid rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for the most part with some small details like Akron and SVSM and Interstate markings which is a nod to LeBron's career. Overall, the shoe looks good and with a tag price of less than 5k, (Php 4,995 to be exact), it could be another mid-tier choice from the swoosh brand. You can get it now at Nike Park in Trinoma.
