The shoes will be on sale in February for 175. What do you think of Obama's new kicks? Can you see him wearing them? Do you plan on getting your hands on a pair?

Dwyane Wade posts emotional video reacting to Kobe Bryant's death

Former Bull and Chicagoland native Dwyane Wade posted an emotional video Sunday reacting to the death of Kobe Bryant.

"I came in the league and I chased him," Wade said. "That's who I chased. I wanted to be respected by him, and once I reached that level, I knew I did something.

"Kobe, thank you, man. Thank you for all the memories — we've got a lot of good ones. These tears that we cry, we're going to miss you. And it's not leaving today, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now. We'll forever, forever miss you, man.

"You're a legend, you're an icon, you're a father, you're a husband, you're a son, you're a brother, you're a friend. Thank you for being my friend. I love you, brother."
