I stumbled across these on another site earlier. I think they're pretty dope and I'm feeling the concept. Forgive me if this has already been postedelsewhere... What do you think NT?
Coming soonto a store near you is the Nike Alpholution basketball sneaker. To make things simple, the Alpholution is a updated rendition of the Alpha Force. You can giveSir Charles the credit for making the Alpha Force a famous shoe in Nike's 80's basketball line-up. Remember the Alpha Air Force 1 High from the CharlesBarkley AF1 Collection? The Alpha Force hit the scene back in 1988 and in 2009 Nike introduces the Alpholution. Here we have a look at the first colorway torelease thanks to SLAM. A black/teal dressing sits with confidence on this new basketball silhouette. This colorway is set to release in July, but don'tfooled, Nike will unleash more colorways this Fall/Winter (hit the related news link to see more). The Alpholution will retail for $100 strong! via Hypebeast

There's also a black/white/purple colorway coming out as well.
Depending on price point, this might be copped .

I like. Looks like it would perform (haven't read the specs yet though) and still look decent off the court. Thumbs up.

If my man Gotty is down, who's to argue?

I like the overall design.

Contrast stitching is a little weird though.

Gonna give the Structure hoop shoes a shot first, but I'll definitely pick up a pair of these if I hear that they perform well.
