gots da spinna's on da kicks



Quote:
LOS ANGELES --

Dada Footwear is the Los Angeles-based shoe company that made the flashy metallic shoes Chris Webber wore in the All-Star Game two years ago. With less than one-half of a percent in market share, Dada has the shoe that figures to turn some heads in the expensive front row of seats at the Staples Center at Sunday's game. They're called the Sprees -- named after their endorser, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Latrell Sprewell. The shoe features a to-scale model of the custom spinning rims on Sprewell's car -- with the small wheels appearing on the side of the shoe.


Much like Nike, with visible air, and Reebok, with the Pump, Dada is touting its technology -- called LS Air Exchange.


When the athlete steps down, an airbag inside the heel deflates causing air to flush out of the shoe and through the wheel, thus making it spin. When the athlete lifts his foot up, air comes back into the airbag and the wheel stops.


The idea for the shoe was dreamed up with Sprewell, who signed with the company over the summer, before he was traded by the Knicks to the Timberwolves. Sprewell owns his own autobody shop called Sprewell Motorsports, which is known for its spinning rims.


"This shoe is going to be very relevant on the street," Willis said. "But it's not some fashion gimmick, it's a basketball performance shoe."


Dada endorser Chris Kaman of the Los Angeles Clippers was the first to break out the shoes at the Rookie Challenge on Friday.


"The shoe design was a surprise until now," Kaman said after the game. "I like the idea, but I probably won't continue to wear this model because I'm not really a flashy type of guy."


The shoe on Artest's feet caused a commotion at the NBA Jam Session on Saturday morning, many in the crowd were pointing to the rims spinning on his shoes.


"They're the hottest shoes I've seen since the LeBron's came out," said Randall Harris, a 13-year-old from Los Angeles.


"I'm having fun with it," said Artest, who is currently deciding on what shoe brand he'll endorse. "I gotta get the rims on my car now."


Dada, like many shoe companies, has a history of drawing inspiration from cars. Two shoes endorsed by Chris Webber had car influences -- one with a car grill and another made to look like the wood that adorns the inside of Mercedes cars.


The rim replica deal is an alliance with Lexani, a high-end rim maker. Dada will have the Lexani name on the shoe rims, while Lexani markets the real 26-inch Sprewell spinning rims -- which cost about $8,500 for a set of four.


"It's a natural partnership," said Lexani president Frank Hodges. "We're trying to reach the same type of urban youth consumer that Dada has been able to reach."


The shoe, which costs $110, will hit stores on March 20.

You guys suck. That shit is hilarious.

It's like wearing your cap sideways, fool. You do it cuz you're making fun of other people that are doing it, but they're doing it for the same reason too. So it's just a bunch of people making fun of people who are being made fun of.

That came to me while I was on shrooms once. *nod*

So yeah..I didn't read the article, but this looks like a product of rappers sitting around saying "So you got them new rims eh? I got some too....wouldn't it be funny if they put em in shoes?" And these fuckers are lucky enough to have enough money to do it.

This shit is funny as fuck. I'd wear em for a day at least...just to get a good laugh outta it.

I wonder how far this fad can be taken. Will we see entire laser light shows on shoes? How about ones have small speakers and can connect to a CD walkman?
Pretty soon we'll have people walking into things and each other because they are so distracted by each others shoe's, "Ooh! It's shiny! Bling! Bling!"

They've had backpacks with Cdplayers/MP3 players/speakers in them for years, son.

I've seen em in such raver rags as Mixmag and URB.
