Tyler Ulis’ Nike Kyrie 2’s

Yes, UK’s Point God is wearing the shoes of a Dukie, but I think we can find a way to forgive him.  After changing things up frequently early in the season, he’s stuck with the Kyrie’s through most of SEC play.

Jamal Murray’s Kobe 11’s in the Exclusive UK Colorway

Instead of rocking Drake’s OVO Jordan X’s, Murray let go of his Canadian-connection against Georgia for this pair of Kobe’s that are only available in this color to the Cats.

Marcus Lee in the Jordan Retro XI 72-10’s

The 72-10’s are kind of a big deal, but I don’t explain it as well as The Daily Show.

Anthony Davis’ All-Star Game Swag

Nike’s Air Audacity All Star is made exclusively for Anthony Davis’ third All-Star Game appearance.  If you check out the heel, the air pockets say “Fear the Brow.”  AD will be wearing them in tomorrow night’s game and possibly during tonight’s Skills Challenge.

NEW: Drake’s OVO “Kentucky Blue” Jordan Retro VIII

Earlier today, Drake posted the above picture on Instagram of what he calls “Kentucky Blue” OVO’s and the Key to the City of Toronto.  The Retro X OVO’s are kind of a big deal, and have been worn by both Alex Poythress and Jamal Murray this season.  Unfortunately, there’s no news on whether or not these will be available to the public, only an Instagram picture and a (likely) All-Star Game appearance.

Isaiah Briscoe’s Jordan 29 Low

For those that don’t realize, Jordan is now up to his 30th shoe.

Skal in the Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5

Kobe has a wide variety of shoes in his name, and I think “Venomenon” might be the best Black Mamba pun Nike has produced.

Derek Willis in the Kobe 10 Low

When Derek first wore these out on the Rupp Arena floor to warm-up, Ryan Lemond didn’t think those were his game shoes because they don’t quite have the UK feel to them.  Regardless of their color, these kicks have been with Derek through all of his recent success in the Wildcat starting lineup, therefore, I am a HUGE fan.

Briscoe’s Nike Hyperchase

Isaiah rarely wears the same shoe twice, but he always goes with low tops, something I will never understand.

Johnny David’s Kobe 10 Elite Commander

KSR is not-biased against the Wildcat walk-ons.  Besides, his shoe game isn’t bad at all.

For more, check out Volume I and Volume II from earlier this season.

    Completely off subject, but Duke just beat Virginia on a last-second shot by Grayson Allen – after he walked. After he clearly walked. But it’s easier to play fast with the rules on your home court these days.

    Again. He walked.

      I can confirm this. Was watching it live, big time walk.

    In the second picture, with Tyler and Jamal, what are the Nikes Jamal is wearing?

      That’s what the description is for, Kobe 11’s in the Exclusive UK Colorway.
