Nike is at it again. With NBA All-Star Weekend only a few days away, Nike will be releasing the Crescent City Collection, which will pay homage to the city of New Orleans. This collection includes kicks were specifically made to be worn off the basketball court. The Crescent City Collection will honor New Orleans by including some of the city’s characteristics, like its food, culture, and wildlife.
Nike also has the NOLA Gumbo collection, which include the KD VI, LeBron 11, and the Kobe 9 Elite. That collection also pays tribute to New Orleans by focusing on the art, music, and characters the city has to offer.
The Crescent City Collection will be released on Thursday and it will include some distinct colorways. The Air Force CMFT is quite an interesting colorway. The shoe includes various kinds of animal print and it also include foamposite and cork material. The Nike Air Up ’14 is covered with University Red, but the right amount of black is mixed in to give it a good combination. They shoe will also include water droplets and a steamy graphic which mimics a boiled crawfish. The last shoe in the collection is the Nike Flystepper 2K3. The shoe has the characteristics of an alligator, which is a popular animal in New Orleans. The quarter panels are made from the Nike 2K3, but the straps are made to look like alligator skin and the last characteristic is the elevated silhouette of the Flystepper.
