KICKS 14. Take 3.
The latest, greatest KICKS Magazine is officially on sale now. This year marks the 14th edition of the annual KICKS book and the good people over at SLAM have released three covers this go-round: Rajon Rondo representing the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011, Kemba Walker pitching the Under Armour Micro G Juke, and Monta Ellis slinging the AND1 ME8 Empire Mid.
But wait, there’s more. Here’s a preview of what else is in KICKS 14 from SLAM editor-in-chief Ben Osborne:
Elsewhere in the issue, besides the cover stories on Rajon, Kemba and Monta, we packed the usual broad range of pieces into a very meaty 104-page issue (ok, so we aren’t quite Vogue, but trust me: 104 is a healthy book in 2011.) There’s Eric Gordon talking about his maturation as a player and the adidas Stupidly Light he’ll be rocking. We sent writer Maurice Bobb all the way to Paris to cover Quai 54, an incredible streetball event made extra special thanks to Jordan Brand’s financial and product support. There are also stories on Yao Ming’s shoe legacy, Swizz Beatz’ partnership with Reebok, Blake Griffin as the face of the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011, Converse’s Band of Ballers, APL, ATR, BALL’N and so much more.
KICKS 14 is on newsstands in NYC now and filtering down to your local magazine-hoisting locations nationwide over the next week. Go get a copy, or three.
