Anthem Is a Shoe Palace?

Say what? That Anthem store in Pearlridge Phase 1 Uptown is actually a Shoe Palace in disguise? The employees wear the SP uniform and all plastic bags have the SP branding. But… this location gets the hype releases like the recent Yeezy Clays although only one full size run. And sadly, this shoe guy was […]

Did You Catch the AM90 Mars (Re)Landing?

Did you see that Nordstrom “restocked” the Air Max 90 Mars Landing shoes that recently released? I’m guessing this was more returns rather than a restock, but for a short while, a few (small) sizes were readily available for purchase. I’m kinda glad I passed on these sneakers. Althought they have a cool backstory and […]

Crazy Clay Morning

What a crazy morning going for the last Yeezy 350 regional drop, the Clays. I gotta hand it to Adidas for making this an equitable, attainable drop for the masses. Yeah, the release was more than four hours ago, and Adidas finally sold out, so there was lots of time (and opportunity) to snag a […]

Regional Yeezy Boost 350

Yeezys have been launching fast and furious throughout March. With a release set for each week, besides the grounded Geodes, Yeezy 350s have been filling up the calendar. First up were the Asian region Hyperspaces available on Adidas Japan and Yeezy Supply Asia. Both sites were easy to get to, but the language barrier was […]

No Frogs But Foam Tigers

Nope, I didn’t get the Frogs, but I did manage to capture these Foamposite Tigers. Total luck and perserverance as I kept trying on City Gear, the only early supplier of this shoe. Nike has since launched a larger release of the Air Foamposite One Tiger Stripes, but I bombed on getting any more pairs. […]

No Frog Blazers

Totally didn’t expect how hard it would be, but I just couldn’t find a pair of Nike SB Blazers in collaboration with Frog Skateboards. Targeted at skaters, most inventory accordingly released in skate shops, and many of them didn’t sell online. The few with an online store were wiped out quick. Hoping these are released […]

Grounded Geodes

Seemingly the darker colored Yeezys just don’t resonate with the (younger) sneaker community. As a “seasoned” shoe head, I personally didn’t mind the 700 v1 Mauves, and I kinda like the 700 v2 Geodes. But even at release, they just didn’t move like other Yeezy drops. Even now, hours later, common sizes are readily available […]

Nike React Element 87 Actually Available

If you hurry, you might still be able to grab a pair of Nike React Element 87. Yes, these restocked on Nike.com Nordstrom.com but only in the Hyper Fusion (Volt/Racer Pink/Aurora) colorway and in sizes above Men’s 8. If I hadn’t gotten a long-sought-after pair from Nordstrom, I’d consider these even in the wild colorway since […]

Nordstrom Pricing Mistake

It’s been awhile, but Nordstrom is fallible and does make mistakes. Witness these New Balance 998 in grey and teal. Usually, the 998s made in the USA go for $180, but at the moment, Nordstrom has them priced at $100. Sizes are slowly going…

I Take That Back…

Okay, okay, I take that back. I really didn’t fib. I was just delayed with the truth. A busy Friday prepping for a weekend at Bellows called for a caffeine boost, and looking to the skies, I was inspired to get another Cloud Macchiato. This time iced. I must say the presentation of the iced […]

More Eastbay Games

I thought I was done and over with Eastbay’s games after I eventually placed my order succesfully. Though potentially still a success, my order has hit a significant snag that starts off like this: Thank you for your order. We are currently out-of-stock, however…

Shoe Palace May Be the Worst

Okay, EastBay and Finish Line may actually be pardoned after what I witnessed with ShoePalace.com. During a hyped release, you’ll see this timer counting down from two minutes. The accompanying text is below: PLEASE WAIT… You are probably seeing this because something HOT is going on right now — a new release, a restock, or […]
