Entertainment News

Let’s take a look back into our childhood, shall we? The colorful characters we all wished were real, but sadly they weren’t. At least the plush toys added to the belief, and still, do. We can’t help but admit we will binge watch these movies at any moment in time, even when we are old and wrinkly, these movies will be a classic in our hearts. Without further ado, here are the top five best-animated films of all time.

You can’t go wrong with basketball shoes. With Nike and Adidas teaming up with basketball superstars, there is no disappointment in this type of shoe. It’s the design, feel, overall performance a basketball shoe has that makes it the best. No soccer, football, baseball, or running shoe can beat basketball. Unless you make it shoot fireworks, now that would be a cool shoe to wear. Probably one of the most prominent basketball athletes in the business, LeBron James, has one of the largest fan bases in just his shoe brand. We will keep seeing his shoe brand build as his career dies down, he will probably keep creating shoes when he’s in a wheelchair. Here are our top 5 favorite LeBron basketball shoes.
