My friend Sean McCaw, a former professional basketball player and coach in Germany and now a professional basketball Scout for the Science City Jena Basketball Club in Germany wants to give away a BRAND NEW shiny pair of Hops sneakers. You’ve probably never heard of this brand yet, so here is a little background info.
Hops Sportswear Ltd is a family owned Business based in Melbourne Australia. 2 years in the making this original brand was dreamt up in New Zealand, developed in Australia, designed in Italy and built in China. Hops was launched in November 2007. They have their own patented ‘Medial Wing’ technology that provides optimum stability throughout the light weight HOPS product, without taking away from the strength and durability of Hops footwear. Hops is now available in all of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada in the USA.
“We are passionate about providing great product at the right price point. Whilst continuing to develop bigger and better lines of footwear tailored to the basketball marketplace. With ongoing original designs and functionality to our product we look forward with much anticipation the challenge ahead of becoming an established maker of basketball specific footwear.”

“Hey sneaker heads. Just want to tell you a little bit about Hops. I love my Hops and I had a few pairs before I started working with the company. They are VERY stable and I especially like how they look. I am not the tech wiz, as a player, its just important for me that they fit well and they look good haha. Hops fills all those criteria for me. If you have any questions please feel free to visit our homepage on www.hopsportswear.de or find us on Facebook and Myspace and write me.

These shoes look very comfy and I suppose they don’t have the name Hops for nothing. I like the black/blue/white colorway.
Those White/Carolina mids are sweet! I haven’t heard of Hops before but I really like the looks of those. I’ve only ever worn Nike and Adidas to play in, but I’d really like to try these out!
Nice….I def would sport the White/Carolina blue Mids in a size 11. Can’t wait to see them in all the footlockers in the U.S.
I’d be willing to try them and see! I like the black and blue ones!
the description of the shoe shows great promise for its quality. I’m curious how the new “Medial Wing technology” will influence my game 😉 The green and the Carolina blue ones look really sweet. Keep up the good work!
I like the white and carolina blue pair of sneakers. They look like a good basketball shoe but to see the comfortability I would have to try them on. All in all I like the shoes a lot because they are unique.
Man I like the white/green kyrptonite hops because they are sweet and they remind me of my high school basketball uniform colors. I would like to purchase some.
The shoes look nice i like the knicks color and if its a light fit it will be a good seller. I would rock a pair
hey these shoes look nice. i like the blue whit and black ones
They look like alright basketball shoes, They look to heavy on the foot though while running up and down the basketball court. I prefer light shoes on the foot that have the same experience like MJs shoes that are heavier then most basketball sneakers. However my favorite on out of all of them is the all baby blue and white ones in the picture. Then would be the green ones.
aight peace out ,
The shoes are really nice I like the Black And Blue ones they remind me of the first penny hardaways that came out except these look more softer and comfortable. I can imagine coming of a screen getting the ball facing my defender up jab stepping and blowing pass him attacking the rim going up for a thunder dunk and all he see’s is the word HOPS in his face. Now who really has HOPS. The shoes are the bomb keep up the good work

I’m digging the Kelly Green Hops. I like the lo-cut style of the show, they look a bit shorter than the classic hightop. Definitely a sweet design. Size 10 baby.
A pair of white and grey would be nice and all black 🙂 – My favorite is the Knicks color scheme
i LOOOOOVE the baby blue / white ones.. I’d trade my beloved heels in for those anytime!!!
Them Evolution one’s are my personal favs, but the Kryptonite ones are tight too. They’re all pretty sick looking sneakers tho!
The black 1’s r on fire!
those shoes are hot! i love the carolina ones! it looks really comfy. i could see myself wearing them everyday! was a huge Jordan fan growing up and I’ve always been a die hard fan of the Tar Heels!
I like the blk ones bc they will match more of my bball gear. They look comfy. I wonder if they are light as well.

Evolution Mid for me!! Cool colour scheme

Wow! I can’t wait to try out the medial wing technology! This shoe will be a best seller for sure. I would love to win the black and blue “evolution mid” in size 13. This is a great website and I will visit often. THANKS FOR THE CONTEST!!
Love the name and style… I’m all for the black and blue ones… Great work Sean!

My favorite hops shoes are the hops black/royal/white mid and the hops white/carolina mid they both fit my style. But the coming soon designs they all fit my style i cant wait
these shoes are fine and they look fly.they will be good no me,on the basketball court when i shot some hopps.good brand name.great job
They all look so light and comfortable…of course I love the tar heel colored ones.
those white n blue are sick..they look mad comforatble and looks like you can ball in them and wear the with an outfit. officalllll
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE HOPS COLLECTION. MY FAVORITE ARE THE BLUE/ORANGE PAIR. STABILITY IS NEEDED IN SHOES TODAY, IM A PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINER AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF TRAINING I ALWAYS COMMENT ON IS THE TYPE OF SHOE FOR THE TYPE OF TRAINING BEING PERFROMED. THEY LOOK COMFORTABLE, STABLE AND CLASSY! I WOULD DEFINITELY WEAR THEM, AND HAVE MY CLIENTS TRY THEM AS WELL. GREAT JOB, GREAT SHOE! LOVE THE CONCEPT…SHOWS YOUR PASSION FOR WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH! GOD BLESS

Honestly these shoes are just plain HOTT! They look like they would feel great. The black/duke blue are probably my fav of those although the blue/orange are a very close second. I’d like to wear those with a lebron james knicks jersey in 2010!!
Wow, I never thought of how adding a “medial wing” would help with mobility. Amazing! LOVE the concept, and would love to try a pair! I’m liking the light blue/white pair – mostly because it matches our team colours and of course looks hot. WOOT!
These shoes are so tight, I know I can rock hops on my feet. The color I like the most is red, white, & black because the color match my school colors. I know I will have a lot off people from my school hating on these shoes.
wow! seeing myself in that white and sky blue pair of Hops sneakers makes me feel a great a player.
makes me feel exposed out and heard
This sneakers are good and fine,am thinking how it will look on me when i put it on…….i will like the blue hops sneaker…..i will like to wear it to my coming game,i will happy if i become the winner….
