Your First Look At Spalding’s New Basketball Sneakers In 10 Different Colorways Coming Soon

Spalding bounces back into sneakers.

They’re being worked out on NBA hardwood this season by the likes of Jimmer Fredette, Mario Chalmers and Chris Singleton. Soon, you’ll have that opportunity too. Spalding has returned to the basketball footwear business and this shoe is the first model set to hit stores.

Featuring a mesh upper, synthetic overlays, and D30 impact cushioning (previously employed on BALL’N kicks), Spalding tells us the new hoops shoes are ready to enter retail in about another month. According to press release, the product “will arrive at sports specialty and online retail stores, including select Finish Line stores, finishline.com, dickssportinggoods.com, West-coast based Shiekh stores and others.”

UPDATE: Spalding informs us the shoes will retail in the $90 range.

WILL NOT SELL at $90. If Durants are still on the shelf at clearance prices, from a known commodity, these are asking for $30 racks in a month. That said, I like the grey/red colorway, and the d30 cushioning, if the same as the Ball’N, is GREATNESS. Looking forward to trying them, although at a $60 price.

What a train wreck. I know there are so many hurdles to get a product to market, but by the looks of these they tripped over each one.

The design is a nice start-off, hope the performance matches.

I hope they’ll do some retro’s too.

i can see what they were going for. i mean, in terms of the concept, it looks as if they were going for a lightweight shoe and accomplished it by using a mesh upper. in terms of structural support and strength, they used a webbing of plastic at key points of pressure. the design works, but it also feels like it could have been explored better and done in a more dynamic way. not the prettiest thing on the market, but in terms of the idea, i’m pretty sure all designers have had a sketch that looks like that shoe at some point in their life.

For $90.00 I can get a pair of Kevin Durant shoes. They don’t even have superstars endorsing the shoes. Spalding gone end up bankrupt if they gone get a superstar or 2 to endorse these shoes.

mrfresh88: if it was light, responsive and comfortable…absolutely.

in terms of aesthetics, i could really care less if it were ugly, as long as it delivered in terms of price and performance.
