Everyone knows that John Calipari is a fashion icon, and now he’s out here breaking major Nike news. Calipari tweeted out a photo of him wearing Nike’s self-lacing shoes on Friday in a colorway that’s not currently available to the public.

If you have an averse reaction to college basketball coach gams, maybe close the tab and go have yourself a nice weekend. If you can handle it, though, check out the photo below.

That looks a lot like the Nike Hyperadapt in a new all-white colorway. They look pretty nice, a good departure from the black-and-white original version Nike showed off last fall.

That’s a pretty swanky shoe for Coach Cal to be wearing on a whim in July, but he probably got the hookup from Kentucky super-fan Drake here. They’re looking a bit loose on him, actually, so maybe he should play around with the auto-tightening features a bit and get a nicer fit.

Capilari was once thought to be part of a more hoops-worthy story earlier this summer, as rumors swirled that he wanted to replace Phil Jackson in New York. That was quickly put to bed, though, and now Coach Cal is comfortable doing what he does best: coaching the Wildcats and breaking important shoe news before anyone else.
