Nike drops the Nike Air Entertainer which looks a lot like the Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy 2, adidas flips the D Lillard 2 with a Year of the Monkey colorway, and the V Cruz Trainer gets a dose of the Jordan 3.

Is this what the Nike Air Yeezy 3 would have looked like? I am your host Jacques Slade and this is Today in Sneaks
Kicking things off with my favorite sport, basketball, it looks like adidas Hoops is showing Dame Lillard some love with a Year of The Monkey colorway of the D Lillard 2. Spotted over at Kenlu, these rock a mostly black upper with a burst of blue on the midsole and a bright bold red D on the heel. With 2016 being the year of the Monkey I am sure we will see more in this vein, but it looks like adidas is the first out of the gate. Nice touch with the gold eyelets. No release date yet, but stay tuned and I will keep you updated.
Ever since Kanye left Nike, a few people have wondered what the Yeezy 3 would looked like. Today a new Nike shoe was revealed that looks a lot like the Yeezy 2 and is called the Nike Air Entertainer. As you can see the heel is clearly an ode to kanye’s second sneaker though and this could pass as a Yeezy 2 takedown. Pricing wise, this sneaker will go a lot easier on your pockets and is priced at $130 for the leather and mesh mix on the upper. I can imagine that a few more colorway of this sneaker will be hitting the blogs soon which could be a good or a bad thing.
If you happened to catch my favorite shoes of 2015 video, you know that the Nike Air Trainer V Cruz was one of my top Top 10. Today, a new colorway of the shoe was revealed that looks like it take a lot of inspiration from the folks at Jordan. The black leather upper is highlighted by safari print at the toe and heel but the jordan tie in is the mix of grey and red which looks like it comes from the Air Jordan 3. OF course there is no elephant print on this pair, but I guess Nike Sportswear didn’t want to make it too obvious. Look for these to release in the near future.
For the question of the video, what did you think about the Nike Air Entertainer? Good? Bad? You never liked the Yeezy 2 anyway? Let me know in the comments down below.
As for what I am rocking today, it is the LeBron Xi “King’s Pride”. These are from 2 years go…i think.
