“It looks like NIKE launched a blog under the radar this month for NIKEBASKETBALL.

http://blog.nikebasketball.com/

They also had NORT, ST. ALFRED, HUF, UNDFTD , ALIFE , and PREMIUM GOODS competing in a contest for a chance to design a limited run of the new Kobe’s. “This was a contest where select shops were asked to create their own interpretation of the Zoom Kobe I. The idea behind the contest was to capture the persona of Kobe through color, materials, and overall appearance. The contest was then judged by Kobe and Ken Link.” NORT ended up winning, chk to blog for more info.”
