Reselling Lessons Learned

Just a few lessons I’ve learned so far during my try at reselling. Time Consuming First and foremost, reselling online takes time, a LOT of time. Like a super duper lot of time! But then that stands to reason. If reselling were easy then of course, everyone would be doing it. Actually the fastest part […]

Reselling and the Hawaiian High Cost of Shipping

The first lesson painfully learned for reselling in Hawaii is the high cost of shipping. Mailing a pair of shoes in-state costs around $8, but once that Pacific Ocean is crossed, another $10 is added on. And that makes a huge difference for eBay sales. Paying an additional $18 for shipping on top of the […]

Better in Person

Gotta file these kicks under “Better in Person.” I’m talking about the Under Armour Micro G Volt Low. When I saw these shoes, I had to pick them up since I couldn’t quickly identify them. And that camo-like colorway on that organic upper is super intriguing. After handling the Volt, you feel the old school, […]

Is it possible to monetize a passion and still keep the sanctity of this love intact? I’m going to find out as I take my first steps as an eBay (re)seller. You see, more often than not, when I visit a Ross Dress for Less store, I come across a pair of shoes that’s intriguing. […]

Trying the eBay Thing

After watching one too many Hustler Hacks videos, I decided to give the “eBay thing” a try. And it’s a lot harder than initially thought and time consuming. It’s also fun and discouraging at the same time, full of potential and disappointment. Along with new items, I’m also selling off some of my shoe rotation […]

Where Were You?

Where were you when the (thankfully) false ballistic missile launch sounded? Me – eating breakfast waffles at home. Although a mistake, I’m sure awareness of what to do in this situation is definitely heightened and more people will get prepared Mentioned by The Verge. Yahoo News also reported on Twitter but with a mismatching image.

Found My Next Court Shoe

For the badminton court that is. Yeah, tennis shoes are a better match for badminton, but we both know my love for basketball shoes runs deep. Gotta blame Nike and that guy named Jordan for this continued love affair. And besides, some tennis shoes look good but not as good as the variety of basketball […]

Slow Shipping This Holiday Season

I’m sure it can’t only be me, but has shipping packages this holiday season been slower than previous years? I don’t ever recall having so many parcels delayed or even damaged. I even thought one of my UPS packages was stolen only to find it delivered five days after it was reported. Must be the […]

Scored Yeezys with the Foot Locker App

The second lucky pickup of the week was thanks to the Foot Locker mobile app. For the launch of the Yeezy Boost 350 Beluga v2.0, Foot Locker was promoting their Launch Locator and reservation system in the mobile app. Being a super duper old school member of the Foot Locker VIP club, I signed up […]

Apple TV and Netflix – No Audio

Not exactly sure what happened, but the Netflix app on the 4th generation Apple TV (non 4K) stopped playing audio. I have a feeling there was an update to the Netflix app and the update is implementing digital copy protection. Maybe this could be related to the future inclusion of Dolby Atmos in the 4K […]

Under Armour Curry 2.5 and Ankle Braces?!?!

Just how does Steph Curry wear his signature Under Armour Curry 2.5 shoes while protected by his preferred Zamst A2-DX ankle braces? Even with the adjustable, wrap around fit of the “burrito lacing system,” I just don’t see how SC30 achieves a good fit as seen in the image above. It seems nearly impossible to […]
