Ohio State to wear LeBron XI sneakers


The Ohio State men’s basketball team will be wearing some pretty sick kicks for their upcoming games, courtesy of LeBron James. As you know, King James is an Ohio native and has always been a big Buckeyes fan.

On Tuesday, Ohio State’s official Twitter account shared a photo of two new sneakers that the team will be wearing. Both are the LeBron XIs and have slightly different red and white color schemes. They look pretty similar to the LeBron Xs that James wore last year for the Miami Heat’s opener against the Boston Celtics. I’m sure the players are fired up about it.

Tom Brady rocks phenomenal white sweater after comeback win


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has earned the right to wear pretty much whatever he wants. That was especially true after the incredible comeback win he orchestrated over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with just over a minute remaining in the game. Had the Patriots come up short, he may have looked ridiculous in his white sweater.

Fine, he still looked ridiculous. But it wasn’t as bad as Rob Ryan’s face after his Saints defense blew the game. Brady looked dumb when Julian Edelman snubbed him on that high-five, but he could have worn a tutu to his postgame press conference and pulled it off. That’s what happens when you throw a game-winning touchdown pass to a rookie wide receiver with a few seconds remaining.

PS: Is that a red dot on that sweater? It can’t be.

AJ Green has sick custom Bengals cleats


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green could have the best-looking feet on the field in Week 1. Thanks to an amazing artist from Dez Customz, it appears Green will be rocking an incredible pair of tiger-themed cleats for his team’s opener against the Chicago Bears.

According to Sneaker Files, Green personally requested the new kicks. They feature the Bengals team colors in addition to actual characteristics of a tiger with an eye looking out the side of the shoe. Green’s name is stitched across the back of the cleats. Here are a couple more pictures:

Miami Heat players mean mug in Game 7 T-shirt given out to fans

Miami Heat Game 7 shirt

The 15 members of the Miami Heat showed their best mean mugs for a T-shirt the team gave away to fans for Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Some of the guys like Birdman Andersen appear to be squinting. Others like Dwyane Wade almost make it seem like it’s a modeling picture. And then you have guys like Chris Bosh, Shane Battier, and James Jones with the corners of their mouths turned downward for the tough-guy frown.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the shirt is the prop on the bottom right. The Heat are chasing after the Larry O’Brien trophy, and they probably will get it. The T-shirt, like LeBron James’ shoes, seem to foreshadow another championship for the Heat.

Colin Kaepernick has a pretty ridiculous shoe collection

Colin Kaepernick shoe collection

You think Colin Kaepernick has enough shoes? The San Francisco 49ers star quarterback shared these photos of his sneaker collection on Instagram Thursday and, as you can see, his collection is pretty extensive.

Based on what he shared in the photos, a rough estimate says he has about 100 pairs of shoes. Kaep has a nice mix of casual shoes, boots, Jordans, cross trainers, and basketball shoes, not to mention kicks in about every color imaginable.

Pictures like these should come attached with a warning. Attention fans: do not try this at home, you could go broke.

You know what the funny thing is? Like they said in “Funny People,” the more money you have, the more free stuff they give you. That’s probably how Kaepernick was able to build part of his collection. Still, the man has a long way to go before he reaches Nate Burleson status.

JJ Watt’s ‘MegaWatt’ shoes to be released June 1

JJ Watt MegaWatt shoes

JJ Watt has only been in the NFL for two seasons, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is already one of the most popular players in the league. He’s even getting his own shoe.

Last week, the Houston Texans star defensive lineman tweeted a photo of his Nike “MegaWatt” shoes and said they were “coming soon.” On Thursday, Watt indicated the shoes were coming on June 1.

There has already been a huge response from fans clamoring to get a pair of the kicks. As the Houston Chronicle pointed out, even actress Danielle Fishel aka Topanga Lawrence wants a pair:

Between wearing a Craig Biggio throwback jersey and posing with Yao Ming, Watt has endeared himself to Houston fans. He is great at fan relations and proposed to a young girl who wanted to marry him. As beloved as he is in the city, I have no doubt the shoes will be a hot item.
