Shoe of the Week: Nike Hypermax

Disclaimer: I'm no full on sneaker head, but every week we're gettin our shoe on here! Each week I'll pick a shoe that I like, basketball, or normal. Get your new leather smell ready!
My favorite kicks are usually basketball-inspired. It's no different with the Hypermax. I really like that Nike went out and made an awesome looking shoe for four players who don't usually get their names on shoes (Pau Gasol, Jermaine O'Neal, David West and Carlos Boozer).

While it's hard to pick my favorite colorway, I'd say the Boozer inspired colors are the most versatile. Only people with some Laker clothes can match that Gasol colorway. They're nice, but I don't have tons of gold and purple to go with it.

If anyone's gotten a chance to rock these, let me know how they feel. Also, if you think I'm a dumbass for saying the Boozer colorway's the best, let's hear about which one you prefer. Thanks to Freshness for some info and picutres.

What shoes should I feature next week? Send suggestions here.
