The Knicks faced off against Atlantic Division rivals over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in two hard fought and, in the end, crushing losses vs. The Philadelphia Sixers & The Boston Celtics.
First up, Mitchell Robinson stepped on the court against the Sixers in the Nike Adapt BB “Dark Grey”. This is the first performance Nike shoe with (EARL) “electric adaptable reaction lacing” technology. This shoe is a modern adaptation of the Nike Air Mag, made popular by Michael J. Fox and the Back to the Future movie franchise. The Nike Adapt BB is powered by the Nike Adapt App which allows you to control your shoe fit, check the shoe’s battery levels while you’re on the run, and personalize the lighting on the sides of the sneaker. With all this technology in a Nike brand sneaker, you know they will run you a pretty penny. The Nike Adapt BB retail for $350 on Stock X. Learn more about the shoe on Nike.
On Sunday, Julius Randle, who celebrated his birthday over the holiday weekend, put his best foot forward in the Nike NASA X PG3 “Clipper Blue” vs. The Boston Celtics. This is the 4th iteration of the PG3 X NASA collaboration which pays homage to 6-time All Star Paul George’s hometown of Palmdale, California, where the NASA Flight Research Center is located. They were released on October 23rd to coincide with the start of the 2019-2020 NBA season. They retail on Nike for $120.
