This Week's Heat

Nike “Class of ’97” Pack

He Got Game, one of the greatest basketball movies ever, starring Ray Allen and Denzel Washington features some serious heat. Now Nike has collected the Air Foamposite Pro ‘Pearl’ and the Zoom Hawk Flight into the “Class of ’97” Pack for fans of the film and sneakers.

Allen’s character, Jesus Shuttlesworth, donned both of the sneakers during the movie. In 1997 Zoom Air technology was dominating the hardwood and asphalt, so it comes as no surprise for Nike to celebrate Zoom Air’s heritage while honoring this film.

The Foamposite shell is a simple white with black Swoosh on the side panel. Black nubuck covers the lace eyelets, and tiny red accents hit the pull tabs and Swoosh on the heel. The sneaker sports an icy outsole with red, herringbone patterns.

Dressed in primarily black nubuck, the Zoom Hawk Flight employs metallic wing support with a light blue tinge to it. This sneaker uses blue accents on the tongue, heel tab, and Swoosh. The white midsole is offset by the semi-translucent blue outsole, which features white, herringbone patterns.

Both of these sneakers employ Zoom Air units in the forefoot and the heel. Each silhouette also features a carbon fiber midfoot plate for increased support.

The Nike “Class of ‘97” Pack will be available online and in stores on Dec. 19th, so check out Where to Cop for details. The pack will be available in Men’s for $385, so cop yours to honor film and sneakers.

Air Jordan 8 ‘Chrome’

‘Chrome’ is the latest colorway for the Air Jordan 8 this year, and we haven’t seen this colorway since 2003. The AJ 8 is known for having vibrant aspects on the midsole, tongue, and outsole, but the ‘Chrome’ is an understated, elegant sneaker.

The upper of this silhouette is mainly comprised of black nubuck. The cross-straps sport a stylized, white and grey “23”, and the tongue is stitched with a white and grey Jumpman logo. The midsole on the AJ 8 normally sports varying colorful hues, but on this colorway we are treated to different shades of black, grey, and white.

For its time the Air Jordan 8 was a silhouette which employed some of the top technology. The cross-straps provide complete lockdown, while the higher cut and extra padding around the ankle achieve maximum support. A combo of the anti-torsion plate and the air unit, support and cushion the foot. The outsole rocks the same tonal theme as the midsole, and a unique pattern provides traction.

The Air Jordan 8 'Chrome' will be dropping on Saturday, Dec. 19th, in stores only. It will be available in Men’s for $190, grade schoolers’ for $140, preschoolers’ for $80, and toddlers’ for $60.
