Brandon Jennings’ Rookie Kicks

Under Armour comes out with two subtle sneaks for their main man.

by Chris O’Leary

Under Armour has been down with Brandon Jennings from before Day 1, lacing him out in their gear from the second he decided to take his show to Rome last year. As he enters his first season with the Milwaukee Bucks, we’ve got some advance imagery of the sneaks he’ll wear through the first half of this season.

Below are a white and a black version of the BB Proto 3 “Young Buck.” What do you guys think of them? I’m feeling the black one, but am kind of surprised there isn’t a colorway that really works with the Bucks unis.

    I can’t even front. These aren’t that bad for their first real bball shoe. Nice understated size and location for the logo. I think I’d like the all blacks more, if they had an all black sole. But these r a nice start.

  • Dave

    these are not bad at all, not overly clean but not too busy either

  • balldontlie

    looks light and good for ballin! not bad ua!

  • nowyouknow

    hope they give him a better colorway for the season, these’ll be messed up with the bucks colors.

    Look pretty good to me. I’d choose the black ones though.
    Not a fan of the silver (?) pair.

    green and red shoes are not hot. i don’t really care for them aesthetically, but they may be functional.

    SICK shoes. Colors hinting a Bucks jersey change??

  • thalilbigkahuna

    What shoes was he wearing in the Under Armor ads at the back of Slam? Because I like those a lot more than these. These look like Reeboks or something.

    ^ sorta the same shoe, but with different materials. Right, the ad and Kicks display of all his shoes, they had plenty of nice colorways and materials. What’s this one from? Early 2000′s failed Nike designs?
    And calling them the “proto” prototype as in that’s the name or prototype like these are not final yet?

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    Kicks magazine, if that wasn’t clear, showed a lot of Under Armour shoes for him.

  • Lonnie Long

    not bad looking but the ua logo on the heel is a bit too big really noticable on the silver pair

  • http://www.mynameinblue.blogspot.com Hisham

    I don’t know, but the colorway on the bottom seems to work pretty well with the bucks uni’s, being dark green with a little dark red in there

    Overall, meh. I’m not really a huge fan of the “quilt” look, but they’re not terrible.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    The silver pair looks a litte too Diddy late 90′s shiny suitish.

    The black one’s are nice. The white one’s looks like soccer shoes. But overall not bad. And maybe Brandon Jennings simply doesn’t want to sport his team colours. LOL

    You couldn’t pay me to wear those.

    i like em but i would change up the colors maybe orange and yellow

  • vic21

    If u r underarmour u would like to forget ur player is in the bucks

  • deo_in_the_bay

    these r nice…better than the kobe 5′s…..kobe 5′s looks exactly like the 4′s………..

  • ablaze

    i think they’re okay for UA’s first stab at an nba bball shoe. they do look a lot like the new answer joints though.

  • dfrance

    I don’t know if its my eyes playing tricks on me, but the silver ones do look like they have some green in the midsole.

    Anyway, how long before he drops them for Nike or adidas?

  • http://www.shoenut.blogspot.com ShoeNut

    Can’t lie. They are not that bad. There are definitely worse ones out there. Logo is too big. They have a nice logo, they should incorporate that style into the design of the shoe instead of just placing it on the heel. 6/10

  • Mike

    i am wondering how long it will take til NIKE gets to him….HAHAHAHA!!!

  • luis rosario

    i like the black ones i always liked these since the first time i saw them before these bucks edition came out

  • str8 from samoa

    haha there won’t be no nike deal later on. it will be just like iverson repping reebok…. for life!!!
