Adidas RG3 cleats are just the right fit!
Robert Griffin III is fast becoming one of the most popular players in professional football, and his new adidas RG3 cleats look to do the same in the shoe market. We tested a pair of these technological wonders and found out quickly that they are the real deal, just like RG3. Right out of the box, you’ll notice the sleek design with the RG3-designed shoelace pocket on the tongue that keeps laces out of the way. They also feature a light and flexible techfit upper with QUICKWEB support and the QUICKFRAME plate outsole for the kind of speed that moves chains.
Adidas knows cleats, and they smartly constructed the RG3s with Bootee construction for a snug and comfortable fit, because no matter how good the cleats look, they have to fit right and give you that edge to make things happen on the field. The RG3-influenced cleats are your teammates in going the extra yard to win, and with the QUICKFRAME plate outsole, say hello to superior speed and quickness!
Robert Griffin III is a one-of-a-kind athlete, and the RG3 cleats are as original as the player himself. Check them out at adidas’ official site, because football will be kicking off before you know it.
Product Review: Summer Running with Reebok
Reebok has been impressive lately with a slew of new offering for both the casual athlete (myself) and the more serious athletes out there. This summer, Reebok is unveiling a brand new running shoe called the ZJET. Like the way the jet engine blast is created by moving air from high to low pressure compartments, the ZJET enhances your running by moving trapped air in an underfoot current for maximum cushioning. Paired with extreme flexibility and Nanoweb upper construction for stability, the ZJET is the ultimate in maximum cushioning, providing unsurpassed comfort and quickness so you can jet up and down the open road. Some of the standout features include:
- Max Cushioning Speed Channels: Pressure changes created by your unique foot strike forces air from heel to toe, providing cushioning where you need it and resulting in a soft and responsive underfoot feel.
- Serious flexibility: Multiple flex grooves allow the foot to bend freely adding additional comfort and freedom of movement.
- Nanoweb uppers: Keeps your feet locked in, supported and centered on the platform.
We also appreciated the seamless upper that is super lightweight and provides a smooth and irritation-free fit.
Recently, we tested a pair of the new Reebox ZJETs and were impressed with the fresh look, crazy comfort and solid footing that they provide. The MSRP is $129.99, and you can check them out now at www.reebok.com.
Adidas unveils 2014 World Cup Battle Pack collection
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is less than a month away, and adidas has debuted a new collection of Battle Pack cleats just in time for the tournament. Featuring a cleat from the brand’s five silos — including Lionel Messi’s signature adizero F50, as well as the latest Predator, Nitrocharge, 11Pro and adizero F50 — each model comes in its own disruptive black and white pattern.
Every adidas player will wear the Battle Pack cleats during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, including Messi (Argentina), Mesut Özil (Germany), Dani Alves (Brazil), Luis Suarez (Uruguay), Karim Benzema (France), Frank Lampard (England), Arjen Robben (Netherlands), Fernando Torres (Spain) and Jozy Altidore (USA).
“The black and white design is unlike anything I’ve seen on the field,” said US forward Altidore. “Wearing the same collection as every other adidas athlete at the World Cup makes me part of something bigger.”
The unique black and white design of the Battle Pack collection is inspired by the war paint of native warriors and features gold stripes representing the FIFA World Cup trophy. Alternatively, the Battle Pack version of Messi’s signature adizero F50 includes a blue and white pattern to celebrate the Argentina federation.
The adidas Battle Pack collection debuts on the field for the first time during the UEFA Champions League Final in Lisbon on May 24. All five models are now available for pre-order exclusively at adidas.com and will hit stores beginning May 26.

Product Review: UGG Australia Men’s Chester Slipper Shoe
With springtime kicking into gear, there is no better shoe to complement your wardrobe both inside and outside the crib than the sleek UGG Australia Men’s Chester Slipper Shoe. Bullz-Eye tested a tomato soup red pair that were as comfortable as the best slippers we owned. UGG innovation takes the street in the form of a single, sophisticated silhouette that merges both slipper and shoe sensibilities. An interchangeable leather or luxurious, natural wool lining delivers the feet-sinking comfort of UGG, while a soft suede upper and full rubber outsole confirm the Chester’s lofty loafer sensibilities. The UGG Chester upper is suede-lined with a decorative leather lace insole combined with an interchangeable leather or UGGpure sockliner that naturally wicks away moisture.
How many times have you changed out the insole of a pair of shoes or slippers with a sheepskin or leather choice? Check out the UGG Australian Men’s Chester at their online store. They will run you around $120, but that comes with comfortable and happy feet and a few compliments to boot!
Get your spring basketball gear at Foot Locker
The weather is finally starting to warm up, which means that it’s time to get out of the house and head to the park for a game (or two, or three) of pick-up basketball, where boys become men and men discover that they’re not as athletic as they used to be.
What’s that you say? The tread on your old shoes is worn down to the sole and you’re in need of some new gear? Foot Locker has you covered, man. The specialty retailer carries all the latest apparel guaranteed to make any guy stand out from the crowd, including shoes from NBA stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.
Foot Locker sent us a pair of the new Nike Kobe Zoom Venomenons, and they’re some of the coolest and most comfortable basketball shoes we’ve ever worn. The latest collaboration between Nike and Kobe is comprised of a synthetic upper and a black carbon fiber heel counter with Hyperfuse and Flywire technology for lightweight strength and durability. Additionally, the Phylon midsole features a forefoot Zoom Air unit that provides super-responsive cushioning that will help you explode off the court to grab those big rebounds, and for those playing outdoors, the outsole has an abrasion-resistant material with a Blade Traction pattern designed for excellent traction. They also look great, with six electric colorways to choose from, and priced at $119.99.
Of course, if you’re planning on heading to the courts after school or work, you’re going to need a way to carry all that gear without having to make an extra stop home. That’s where the Nike Hoops Elite Team Backpack comes in real handy, because it offers plenty of storage space, including one main compartment, two zippered pockets, a place for a water bottle and even a 15″ laptop sleeve. It’s also made of water-resistant Tarpaulin, which keeps your stuff safe and dry from the elements, and features a padded back panel that provides additional protection.
That’s just scratching the surface of Foot Locker’s basketball range, however, so be sure to head to your local store or shop online to pick up the Nike Kobe Venomenons and Hoops Elite Team Backpack, as well as their many other new spring products.
