Each year for the past decade or so, Nike has been whoring out what is supposed to be the most religious of all Holy days for Christians. It's been a tradition now along with the Easter bunny and egg hunts, to go out buying bright 'Easter" shoes from Nike. This year more than ever when people are hurting in their pocket, Nike is back at it with hiking prices and making folks line up for their Easter Egg Hunt Themed offering. I am not really sure who would wear these shoes, but I am sure they all will be made limited to duped kids into buying them and of course, let's not forget the resellers aka Uncle Phil's best friend since Nike seems to be helping these folks making money reselling stuff that are already over inflated. Anyways look for these at your fine Nike Basketball retailers all over the world on March 29, 2013.

Nike may start as a running company when it's founder started flipping Japanese made running shoes from the back of his car, but over the years as runners world wide knows, it has lost it's dominance in the running industry and is working effortlessly to reclaim that dominance. But the real bread and butter for Nike is of course it's basketball department.
Here we take a glimpse of the evolution of Nike's basketball shoe design that kept evolving from it's humble start in 1972 until now with great ability to fuse art with science, creating a delicate balance of blending breakthrough form with proper function to deliver exceptional performance.
For over five decades, Nike's transformation of the basketball shoe’s upper has been dramatic. In 1972, the Blazer was a simple cut-and-sew leather design. In 2012, Nike introduced the revolutionary Kobe 8 System, a completely new interpretation with Nike Engineered Mesh, made to meet the needs of one of the game’s best players.
Check out the pics for a revolutionary journey that is Nike Basketball:

Releasing on the same date as the Reebok Question in the Georgetown colorway is the Reebok Answer IV in similar color schemes. Made classic as the shoe that A.I wore to the NBA Finals against the Lakers, the Answer IV saw limited colorways run towards the end of 2012 and just in time for the NCAA March madness, the Georgetown colorways will drop March 9, 2013. Eventhough G-Town has always been a Nike school, I am sure A.I & G-Town fans alike will want these to reminisce about the best guard to come out of that school. Again these will retail for $125, so find your spot, cop 'em and bring on the madness.
