If there was one disappointment about Nike’s awesome Back to the Future II Air Mag, it’s that the shoes didn’t have Marty’s power laces (and that they only made 1,500 and neither you nor I own a pair). But Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says that’s about to change—power laces are coming in 2015. The future is here!

Yes, as Sole Collector tells it, designer Tinker Hatfield showed up at the Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab space in New Orleans yesterday. When asked about power laces, his answer was pretty unequivocal:

“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!”

Reverse Cowgirl. Instead of ranting on stage, Kanye channels his stream of consciousness on the mic for what appears to be the official remix to Beyonce’s hit single. Reworked by producer Mike Dean.

XX8JORDAN

Sometimes a picture is worth 1,000 words. Other times, 1,000 question marks.

Jordan Brand unveiled the latest iteration of its classic sneaker, the Air Jordans, in New York City on Monday. Bearing the tagline “Dare to Fly,” the Air Jordan XX8 looks unlike, well, anything you would put on your lower legs unless you were a Black Ops commander running through a deep snowfall.

Michael Jordan’s signature brand seems well aware that it is breaking new ground. ”Yeah, it looks crazy,” a promotional video for the shoe said, according to TheScore.com. SoleCollector.com reported the teaser also admitted: “It’s not for everyone.”

The Jordan XX8 features an all-black sleeve that covers the entire shoe, save the blue sole, and extends up to the mid-ankle. The sleeve opens and closes with a zipper that, when pulled down, reveals a neon green shoe with neon green laces, neon green lace holes and a black Jumpman logo on the tongue. According to Jordan Brand, the XX8 is the “lightest, most responsive Air Jordan of all time” and boasts “stealth” inspiration. “By the time you see us coming, it’s too late,” the company said. Filmmaker Spike Lee, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, designer Tinker Hatfield and Jordan Brand president Larry Miller were on hand to unveil the shoe.

Thunder All-Star guard Russell Westbrook, inked to Brand Jordan in October, will debut the sneakers on Tuesday against the Nets, according to ESPN.com. The Air Jordan XX8 will retail for $250.

Holy smokes, Charlotte Bobcats news during the postseason that isn’t about the NBA Draft or a comical coaching search. What is the world coming to? So crazy.

But anyways, what you see up there are the new Charlotte Bobcats jerseys, which are really just Dallas Mavericks jerseys with “CATS” across the front and some pinstriping on the side panels. We’ve known about these for less than 12 hours and they are already the funniest jerseys in the league. It’s like the team saw the Mavericks win last year’s title during a meeting about redesigning their jerseys and were like, “How about those? Seems to work for them.” Then everybody else was like, “Sure. Let’s get some shawarma.”

That being said, these are still better than the previous Bobcats uniforms, simply because their blue is a deep navy instead of that old color that looked like a pair of jeans that have been washed six times. While I’d prefer a lot more orange, I’ll admit that the tiny details in the world’s best color are a nice touch, as are the pinstriped side panels that keep things just Bobcatty enough that you don’t actually think they are wearing Mavericks unis. And hey, at least the team didn’t let Michael Jordan design these, because that could have turned out horribly.

In just eight years of existence, this is already the Bobcats’ fourth look. And while this is the best of the bunch, I can’t imagine that changing jerseys every other year is good for establishing an identity. Factor in that the team would love to get the old Hornets name back and you just get the feeling that no one really has any strong feelings about the Bobcats, including the Bobcats.
