Sneakers on my mind

Okay, just to let you know, I am a sneaker addict/sneakerhead. I will occasionally post about the sneakers that I own, would love to own, and the ones I admire from afar.

The basketball season has come to an end in South Africa but that doesn’t stop me from checking out what is coming out and I would like to own.

The following are the Basketball sneakers that  I am admiring and working on owning:

adidas Crazy Explosives 


 adidas South Africa launched the Crazy Explosive, a new franchise built for players with explosive moves that play above the rim. The introduction of Crazy Explosive is part of the brand’s new design and collaboration strategy that combines unique design and style elements that stand out from the crowd.
Crazy Explosive was designed to challenge the look of the conventional basketball shoe and make a style statement on and off the court.  The silhouette features a Primeknit upper that enhances comfort, fit and durability.





Chris Paul’s Jordan Brand signature line has always incorporated two consistent inspiration points: premium performance innovation and ties to Paul’s family.

The Jordan CP3.X’s performance is rooted in lock down and directional support — keys to CP’s signature playing style. The shoe’s new dual pulley system, which integrates Dynamic Flywire technology, locks down the top of the foot and engages the Flywire to secure both sides at the same time. A signature support wing provides support on the outside of the foot and in the heel for quick response.

Leo, Gemini, Taurus and Aquarius zodiac signs are etched into the shoe’s archway to represent all members of the Paul family – his daughter, son, wife and CP, respectively. Additionally, seven different symbols representing CP’s accomplishments during his tenure as a Jordan Brand athlete are etched into the opposite archway. Together, these icons serve as a reminder of family and performance on the court.

adidas harden Vol1 Pioneer


adidas and James Harden reimagine the signature shoe game with the debut of Harden Vol. 1. The collection represents the first chapter of the collaborative partnership that began October 1, 2015 with the goal of co-creating footwear and apparel unlike any signature line in sport.
Driven by Harden’s performance needs and embracing his distinctive design insights, Harden Vol. 1 embodies James’ creativity and expressive style on and off the court. adidas continues to reinvent collaboration and Harden Vol. 1 is a bold challenge to the traditional creative process.


Under Armour Curry 3 Under Armour Inc Curry 3

Constructed with proprietary technologies and designed to drive the league’s back-to-back MVP to new heights, the Curry 3 is the optimal combination of lightweight support, balance, speed and durability. Powered by Under Armour’s newest breakthrough in fabric technology, Threadborne™, Under Armour and Stephen have created a new shoe that breaks the mold of what to expect from basketball footwear, with innovative technology and design.
