A Waste of Paper?

Why do I have the feeling that these raffle tickets for the upcoming Yeezy Boost 350 “Blue Tint” are a waste of paper? Do I trust that Foot Locker and Foot Action will hold legitimate raffles for these shoes or will “associates” of employees coincidentally be rocking them Blue Tints? Update: Yup, waste of time. […]

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 […]

The Adidas Outlet at Waikele Is an Outlet

Okay, let’s keep expectations in check. The Adidas store at Waikele Premium Outlets has recently been renovated with its grand re-opening today through November 12, 2017. But just remember that this is not an Adidas store but rather an Adidias outlet, located in Waikele Premium Outlets. You get where I’m going with this? Don’t expect the […]

Customizing the Dame 4

Although I’m not willing to pay a premium for customize designed kicks, this doesn’t stop me from playing around with the design process. Here are some miAdidas Dame 4 customizations. Think I’ll just wait for Adidas to release yet another one of their many expected color ways for Damian Lillard’s signature sneaker.

Adidas AlphaBounce “Worn and Refinished”

In the bottom row of men’s shoes at Nordstrom Rack was this nondescript box. Peaking over the edge of the box, I noticed something out of place, the Adidas AlphaBounce running shoes.   Amazingly this relatively new runner found its way to the discounted shelves. Must be flawed I thought while pulling them from the […]

Lonzo Ball Should Reboot Converse

In the NBA Summer League, rookie Lonzo Ball played and earned MVP honors while wearing a variety of kicks. Of course he represented the family’s Big Baller Brand, but he also sampled signature models from Kobe, Harden, Curry, and Jordan. Check out Lonzo’s performance analyzed by SBNation. Who knows what this all means. But if […]

Adidas NMD_ Is Nomadic

I’m guessing that the NMD line for Adidas is a shortform of “nomadic.” Because after getting this pair of NMD_R1, they’re already on the move, headed back to Adidas. That glitch colorway is fun but subtle. It’s that PrimeKnit upper that is of issue. Because it’s a single piece construction without a separate shoe tongue, […]

Good Bye Easy Mint

(Not) so easy come, but easy goes goes this Easy Mint colorway of the Adidas Ultraboost. Adidas’ inconsistent sizing strikes again where this women’s size 7 was bigger than a women’s size 7. Oh well. I still love the color, but if it don’t fit right, there’s not much choice…

Kicks Analysis 2017 #8: The Champ

Too much Jordan. Has to be, but in any case, North Carolina barely outlasted Gonzaga in the Finals of 2017 Men’s NCAA basketball season. It was tight until the end before that 9-2 burst by the Tarheels did in the Bulldogs. Of course, I was rooting for the underdog since the Gonzaga basketball program has […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #7: The Finals

It’s over… from a kicks point of view anyways. Nike has another championship locked down with North Carolina and Gonzaga playing in the finals. Starting out, Nike had a 59% chance for one of its teams to win it all. Under Armour and Adidas were close to each other at 19% and 22% respectively. For […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #6: The Final Four

One down, and I’m surprised (as well as bummed since that’s the end of my bracket). Kansas and Adidas are out, leaving Nike with Gonzaga, North Carolina, and Oregon. Under Armour is still scrapping on then backs of the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Kicks Analysis 2017 #5: Elite 8

The odds, the percentages – forget them. It’s March Madness, baby! All shoe brands are still in it with Nike having 75% of the Elite 8. UA and Adidas each have one team repping their brand. Seed: Team, Shoe 11: Xavier, Nike 1: Gonzaga, Nike 3: Oregon, Nike 1: Kansas, Adidas 7: South Carolina, Under […]
