Taking inspiration from space exploration, the NBA 2012 All-Star Game releases feature a galactic theme on the LeBron 9, Nike Zoom KD IV and Nike Zoom Kobe VII System. Graphics pay homage to the supernova – arguably the most powerful force in the universe – while the outsoles glow in the dark and individual ‘mission patches’ adorn each shoe as a nod to the accolades astronauts receive. LeBron James, whose home state of Ohio features more astronauts than any other state, will wear a special version of the LeBron 9 that takes inspiration from the orange space suit. Durant’s colorway is silver and takes inspiration from the silver suit of a notable Oklahoma astronaut, while his mission patch pays tribute to his reign as “H.O.R.S.E.” champion. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII System includes the Attack Fast insert that features a Phylon midsole with Nike Zoom units in the forefoot and heel for the ultimate in lightweight responsiveness. The upper’s color boasts telescopic-inspired imagery as well as a Black Mamba mission patch on the heel. All three editions will be available at select retailers and at NikeStore.com beginning February 25.

Modern Day Artisans: Ricky Feather

Modern Day Artisans: Ricky Feather

In a little less than three years, Ricky Feather – otherwise recognized by his namesake bespoke bike building brand, “Feather Cycles,” has established an impressive reputation for his handcrafted bicycle frames. Having seemingly stumbled into the world of frame building via an apprenticeship working with metal welding, Feather started with little more than basic materials and rudimentary tools such as a file and torch when he initially set out to fabricate his first design. A biproduct of his own personal perfectionism, Feather’s hand-on approach and strict attention to detail is the cornerstone of the quality and identity that is attached to every frame that he individually creates. As he speaks on his concern surrounding the threats to the quality control from the potential expansion and mass production of his trade, it is evident that the same passion and conviction that guides Ricky Feather are yet another reminder of the importance of the remaining Modern Day Artisans.
