Peak shoes — footwear provider of Kevin Love, Jason Kidd and Shane Battier, among others — are still not widely available in the United States. That’s fine for two reasons: 1) they are just OK looking and 2) these t-shirts, also from the brand, are available. You win some, you lose some, as they say.

And if you’re going to win, this is a good one. Caricature shirts have been created for each of Peak’s celebrity endorsers. That means you get your choice of a variety of fairly well-known to kind of well-known NBA players, including guys like Kyle Lowry, Gordon Hayward and Patrick Patterson. If you happen to be a fan of any of these players, that’s awesome because these aren’t guys who are setting the t-shirt game on fire. No offense to Beno Udrih, but you don’t see pop-up shops dedicated to his stubbly visage that often.

The shirts retail for $30 a pop ($25 with the coupon code “PLAYER5″) and are almost an exact ripoff of something I did almost four years ago to the point where I kind of have to wonder if these Peak shirts were partially inspired by my Pharrell Williams ripoff because this and this look way too similar to be a total coincidence. No hard feelings though, because these are awesome and a validation of my impeccable style. Thanks, Peak.

Buy them all, if you want. You won’t find a finer Carl Landry shirt on the planet. True, you probably won’t find another Carl Landry shirt on the planet, but still.

  1. I want that Gordon Hayward shirt SO badly. I just bought a book on the Bulldogs and he’s on the cover…i listen to his rap “Too Big Yo” every day…i want that shirt.

  2. Only one I’d consider is the Dorell Wright shirt. I like his game. Plus, some of the other players are FA and might not even be w/ the same teams. And Love has the old colorway, I see green

  3. these shirts look as bland as the shoes. they look like rejects of hong kong “urban” toys from the 90s. …but i do love dorell wright
