These right here are the "Sidney Dean" themed kicks named after Wesley's character in WMCJ. The colorway supposedly matches what Sidney wore on the court, but I don't remember any zebra stripe. I should probably order up this DVD up on NetFlix to do some blog research.
This footbed text will probably wear away after one ballin' assed C-League game. But the "You can listen to Jimi, but you can't hear him" is one of the better lines from WMCJ. Well, it's maybe a close second to "Beee-leeee! Why you spend all your money on bass-keeet-baalll!?"
You remember Sidney Dean's flip up visor? Well, the tounge of these limited edition's flip up as well. Pretty damn funny.
Woody's character, Billy Hoyle, got pretty pissed when he didn't get the ball while being in the fucking zone. I find it ballsy that Nike would put the "EFF" word on their sneaks. But I like it.
If I had to choose, I'd get the Billy Hoyle's. But limited edition kicks aren't really the types that you play ball in. And since I couldn't imagine walking around town in Hyperize shoes with my jeans on, I'll probably be waiting a few months until the normal colors go on sale and drop below a C-Note. But I better wear out my Hyperdunks first.

A few new pieces of information on the Hyperize front. First, the Hyperize Shoe is out now for $124 at Foot Locker. It's the second generation of Hyperdunk. The Hyperize site is HERE where you can download the track, check out the 4 versions of the upcoming TV commercials, get ringtones and see the Hyperizers Bios.
Also, check out the lyrics meant for memorization:
DON'T CRITICIZE (HYPERIZE)
Chief Blocka (Andre) Chorus
We just be hyperizin'
While ya'll be crticizin'
We just gon do our thing like every day
You can't control the style
You think that we're too wild
But we're just having fun everytime we play
Fog Raw (Williams) Verse
Playa hatin on a playa
Girl I'll see ya lata
You see me in the lane, now you don't, I'm the mayor.
I'm headed for the rim
Fog Raw get it in
We just wanna ball and laugh
What's your problem?
When my hands touch the rock, HOT!
Look at the poor little rim, ROCKED!
Baller girls love to smile when I deliver
I make they're little pom poms quiver
Chief Blocka Chorus
Velvet Hoop (Durant) Verse
Oooooooo Weeeeeee. IT's Velvet Hoop.
Wristband full of loot right next to my Shoot. Ing. Hand.
What's the temperature Sam?
80 degrees. I make a D freeze. Bring them punks to they knees,
don't talk about boring dunks
Velvet, I'm the youngest in charge
Get the hell out my garage unless you fixin' my car.
Scoop up Ice, Chief Blocka, and Fog Raw.
Let's Ball. To the hoop y'all. Come on Come one. To the hoop ya'll.
Chief Blocka Bridge
Ice-O (Lewis) Verse
It ain't my fault ya can't hang
Maybe this ain't ya game
Hoops is about heart and hustle
If you like stayin' on the ground maybe you should wrestle
Breakin' windows when yo shot gets tossed
Make you run after the ball my crew yell GET LOST!
Wit a cross make you ankles hit the pavement
But yo coach look at me in amazement
You'll wonder where your Aid went
My crew never run
Yes we in Hyperize's havin' hella fun
(how much fun?)
I said hella fun listen hun, wanna know the secret to my rize
Check the kicks under my thighs
Surprise, i just banged all over your center.
It's flick time you stand I will deliver
Chief Blocka Chorus
Now that 'ish is HOT!

Chief Block = Iggy (early word was that he was going to use AutoTune. Must have been cut)
Fog Raw = Mo Williams "See me in the lane, now you don't, I'm the Mayor"
Velvet Hoop = Durantula (was he 3 years old when the African themed style was last hot? Hilarious)
Ice-O = Rashard Lewis (providing a Tattoo of a hyperize shoe on the back of some old white chick? Double hilarious)
Great, great video. More than rewatchable indeed. Truthfully, it gets better the more times you watch it as you pick up more and more stuff. Enjoy:
Let's admit it. The big exploitative Super Corporation Nike is on a roll. This "Today Was a Good Day" Nike SB video featuring Paul Rodriguez as Ice Cube is excellent. See if you can catch the NBA cameo:
The question remains: what shoe are you more likely to cop? The Hyperizers by Nike or the new P-Rod's by Nike SB? I've got a pair of hyperdunks and a few pairs of Nike SB P-Rods. But they are both getting kinda old. Hummm.....

But let's move higher up the draft board and ask which picks can make an immediate impact in '09/'10 by gettin' all NEXT wit it. Blake Griffin will get plenty of run with the Clips and should be a valued fantasy player until he re-injures his shoulder in February. Rickey Rubio may dazzle us on ESPN & YouTube highlights (no nationally televised games for Minny) but we're all pretty sure that the scruffy little Spaniard will make just as many mistakes as converted no-look dimes on Kurt Rambis' squad. Tyreke Evans could be the real deal for Sactown as he overpowers other PG's in The Association but I'm pretty sure he's going to have plenty of growing pains managing his posse of hangers on. "Dude, let me be your Manager of Late Night Par-Tay!"
Do you want to see a clip of someone who had no problems at all as a rookie in 1984?
Makes you kind of sick, doesn't it. Someone who's THAT GOOD in their 9th game as an NBA pro. It just make you realize that statements such as "Anthony Randolph is totally awesome and the Savior of our Franchise!" are drowning in message board homer shortsightedness without any connection to what a "can't miss" rookie really is.
