NBA 2K17 Loves Sneakerheads

Share Button

The 2K series has been the clear winner for basketball video games. Each year featuring updated graphics, play options and improved realism. And with improved face scanning, playing NBA 2K17 is about as close to playing in the NBA as you can get. With the 2016 season ending we get to look forward to a new game with new features, and sneakerheads were definitely considered this year. NBA 2K16 featured a Michael Jordan Edition featuring the GOAT himself and Spike Lee. The NBA 2K17 Legends Gold features Kobe Bryant as a proper sendoff to Mamba.


The Legends and Legends Gold edition will include a handful of physical items. You’ll get a  Kobe Bryant skin for your controller, a poster, trading cards. You’ll also get a butt load of VC (virtual currency) used to unlock in game items. But the Legends Gold edition will grant users 24 Kobe signature kicks to wear in the game. A nod to Kobe’s successful career as a player but also as an icon in the sneaker industry.

Even more exciting for some players is the inclusion of Yeezys in this year’s 2K17. Specifics of what models and colorways hasn’t been confirmed yet. As sneaker culture nears the end of it’s pop-culture arc, we see it featured in movies and commercials and video games. Sneakerheads are big money right now and are being catered to everywhere. We live in an age where even virtual sneaker releases are getting hyped.

The Jordan Brand continues it’s Championship Pack tradition with the Retro 8 Trophy and Confetti. Altho they notably lack the Championship Ring lace locks of the Retro 6 and 7 there’s an excellent quality build and nice touches on these 8’s. Also departing from the Cigar and Champagne theme Michael Jordan is known for, they instead represent the NBA Championship Trophy and Confetti.


The Retro 12 is really back and JB is milking it. A slight divergence from the French Blue, a UNC themed Wolf Grey drops along with the C&C pack.


Adidas not to be left out this week is dropping an extremely Limited EQT ADV 91-16 “910”. This consortium collaboration include individually numbered pairs limited to 910 total.
