I couldn’t have been more excited last week when the NBA season kicked off. I have long been a huge basketball fan, lets be real my father is a coach for the Milwaukee Bucks. Right now there is a huge crossover within the demographics of those who love fashion and those who love sports. If you are keeping up with pop culture, it is no surprise that these players have become fashion staples. Basically, the NBA is on fire, and we are going right along with it.
This season, I am going to take you along my journey with my fascination of all things kicks and collaborations in the NBA. I am a sneaker girl at heart, and last week there was no shortage of new basketball shoes that launched alongside the season openers. My favorites, the Jordan Westbrook 0.2 Jumpman from Nike.
Another great launch was The Elderstatesman X NBA collaboration last week. This L.A.-based lifestyle brand has partnered with the major sports league to bring fashion and flair to players and fans alike.
The NBA and The Elder Statesman have partnered on ongoing collections of cashmere sweaters and beanies, scarves, T-shirts, and more. The partnership, which launches exclusively at Barneys New York, brings modern luxury to the NBA.
Let the NBA season begin, and below is a teaser of my favorite shoes from some of the more fashion forward men in the league below!
