It has to be lots of fun to be Tom Brady's teammate. He probably does a great Bill Belichick impersonation, and I'm sure he has lots of great hair care tips. According to this new Ugg commercial, there is also the added bonus of getting free slippers when you make the team. It may not be as awesome as having your quarterback introduce you to One Direction, but it's way better than a pair of gloves. Because when your feet are wrapped in the cozy comfort of the sheepskin lining, it makes you want to protect the blindside of the guy who gave them to you just a little bit more.

If you're one of the lucky few who is able to score a pair of Emmitt Smith's classic Reebok shoe, the ES22, then you will definitely have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Reebok is releasing the shoes ($140 at Foot Locker) on Wednesday, November 21, the day before Thanksgiving, so you can have some fresh kicks when you play in your family's annual Turkey Bowl touch football game. Or better yet, when you're semi-conscious on the couch after eating waaaay too much stuffing and watching Emmitt's old team, the Dallas Cowboys, play the Washington Redskins.
The sneakers haven't been available since 1997 and have built up a bit of a celebrity following. Musical artist Swizz Beatz is a fan, and it's no surprise that NFL running backs Maurice Jones-Drew and Jamaal Charles like the shoe.

His teammate Russell Westbrook may be more of a fashion icon, but with his fifth signature shoe, it's clear that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant doesn't want to be outdone in the style department. Durant's new Nike shoe, the KD V, features two types of cushioning: a Zoom unit in the forefoot and an Air unit in the heel. The red, yellow, and black colors are inspired by the state flag of Maryland, Durant's home state. The sneakers will be available on NikeID on November 6 and will be in stores on December 8.

There were a lot of questions surrounding the release of Apple's new iPhone 5. Would it be thinner and lighter? Would it have a larger screen? Would it allow humans to speak directly to dolphins? (O.K., maybe I'm the only one that was wondering about that last question.) But New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert had an even more important question that he wanted answered: How would the iPhone 5 work as a basketball? To find out the answer he decided to take a brand new iPhone to a basketball court and discovered that—wait for it—the iPhone makes for a really horrible basketball. Let us all say it together now: "DUH!"

On Wednesday, Reebok announced that they would be re-releasing the Question shoe in the white/blue colorway on October 5. Since the shoe was originally released during Allen Iverson's NBA rookie season in 1996-97 (before most SI Kids readers were born), a brief history lesson may be required here. First, there was a basketball player named Allen Iverson.
Tonight's MLS All-Star Game (ESPN2, 8:30 p.m.) between the Major League Soccer's top players and Chelsea FC of the Premier League is being called the world's first "smart soccer" game.
