Here is our first look at Russell Westbrook's first signature performance shoe, the Jordan "Why Not Zer0.1". The shoe is custom made to fit Westbrook's style of play; "highlighted by its smooth vamp, which, fitting for Westbrook, offers dual purpose. First and foremost, it serves the MVP’s key footwear need: forefoot containment. Westbrook plays high on his toes, always ready to push to the hoop or convert a rebound or steal into a fast break. For this, he needs stability over the sole unit, such that no added movement minimizes response when shifting direction or getting maximum bounce to the rack. Combining his style, specific performance needs and Jordan Brand soul, the end result is a futuristic silhouette that features a fused mesh upper, full-length Zoom Air unit and a compression-molded pylon foam piece engineered for flight." - Nike
adidas has unveiled their “Squadron Pack” of custom cleats designed for their NFL Athletes: Dak Prescott, Von Miller, DeAndre Hopkins, Jay Ajayi, Jimmy Graham, Josh Norman, Landon Collins and Aaron Rodgers in honor of our nation’s active military & veterans for Veterans Day.
Each pair of cleats is personalized with designs and graphics to match each player. Cool design details include symbols on the medial side of the cleats that highlight big plays, statistics, awards, and accolades of each player.
adidas took it one step farther by partnering with Activision Publishing, Inc. to create custom Squadron Pack kits that include; an exclusive advanced copy of Call of Duty®: World War II and a custom adidas x Call of Duty branded PlayStation 4®. The pack will also include a pair of adidas alphabounce, an exclusive adidas t-shirt, a custom adidas Hockey NHL Military Appreciation jersey, a personalized bomber jacket, and a PRIVATE LABEL duffel bag
adidas has partnered up with top producer, Mike WiLL Made-It and rapper YG to produce the ultimate pre-game anthem, which will drop on Monday before the Denver Broncos debut. The track was inspired by Von Miller’s heartbeat during training. We will also see this inspiration throughout the design of adidas Athletics’ new Z.N.E. Pulse apparel collection.
The original track “Heart of A Lion” “..represents the rising heartbeat of athletes prior to the start of the game. The theme of the all-new collection focuses on the ‘pulse moment,’ the moment right before athletes step onto the field, a moment when their heart rate peaks in anticipation.”
adidas baseball has made a splash this year, with the unveil of their “Legend Pack” 2017 MLB All-Star Icon Cleats and Icon Turf Trainers. In addition to the featured LA trainers, adidas created colorways inspired by New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and Miami. The designs pay homage to the trend setting cities, reflecting their unique culture, music, art and style.
This LA Icon Turf Trainer features a mixed material plaid woven upper and pin stripe sock liner. In chrome, you will find the iconic 3 stripes located on the toe as well as the graffiti inspired adidas logo on the heel. The most unique part of the shoe is the wrap around fuzzy dice inspired heel. The shoe’s graphics are intended to evoke the chrome, graffiti and low-ride culture.
adidas is breaking a lot of firsts with these cleats and trainers. Not only are these cleats the first cleats and trainers to feature full-length BOOST, but the first clear plated adidas cleats with graphics beneath AS WELL AS the first baseball cleats to feature faux fir, faux alligator (featured on the Miami Icon cleats and trainers), suede and linen.
adidas never falls short of creativity and ingenuity when it comes to making a splash with their Icon inspired cleats and trainers.

Last year it was a trending dance that took the athletes of the NFL by storm. This year, the dab craze is over and it’s all about pregame fire.
NFL stars are wearing all sorts of custom cleats during their pregame routine. Some players even have multiple pairs to rep before kickoff. Due to NFL regulations, athletes must wear cleats that represent their team’s colors but what they wear prior to kickoff is unregulated.
Each week UNISWAG will bring you a recap of the top custom cleats from around the league.
Let’s jump right into it.
Odell Beckham Jr. makes his presence felt in London
With taste and class, Odell Beckham Jr. stepped out onto the grass at Twickenham Stadium laced up in custom Burberry cleats. The Burberry pattern pays homage to the style developed in London, where Beckham and his Giants prevailed over the Los Angeles Rams with a victory on Sunday.
For game time Beckham busted out a pair of cleats with the trademark patterns to pay tribute to iconic British rock bands The Rolling Stones and The Who.
The switch was brilliant in that it allowed Beckham Jr. to continue to wear his customized cleats while still adhering to the NFL’s rules and regulations. Well done Odell, well done.
McKinnon is out for Harambe
Jerick McKinnon, a running back for the Minnesota Vikings, took his cleat game to whole new level on Sunday.
Before the Vikes lined-up to take on the Philadelphia Eagles, McKinnon paid his respects to Harambe; the gorilla shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo this past May. Harambe’s death has sparked countless memes, songs and outrage; and continues to be a pop culture topic.
Mohamad Sanu brings power to pink week
October is here and that means pink week has been in full effect. Atlanta Falcon’s wide receiver Mohamad Sanu echoed his support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with some nostalgic custom kicks.
Sanu wore the Pink Power Ranger cleats to encourage others to #JoinTheFight and take the necessary steps to combat Breast Cancer. Not to mention the fact that these Kreative Custom cleats are awesome.
