I’ve Been Foamer-ized!

Mr. Foamer Simpson has gotten inside my head. It started with this video, 5 Sneakers Every Guy Should Own Right Now! where Foamer listed his fifth pick as the New Balance 990. New Balance 990v4?!? Hanging with the Air Jordan 1, Nike AirMax 270, Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner, and Nike Air Max 1-97 “Wotherspoons” […]

Yeezy Boost 350 Triple White Sold Out Yet?

First off, thanks goes to Adidas and Kanye West for releasing the ever-popular Yeezy line of shoes in mass quantities to the public. Usually a Yeezy drop is plain bananas, but the release of the Triple White colorway seems more equitable due to the mass quantities. But one downside of the wide availablility is the […]

eBay Peeve: Real?

Okay, not an eBay tip but a pet peeve. Just how are you supposed to answer questions asking if your items for sale are real or authentic? Um, yes… What kind of question is that? If fake, would I admit to that? And how am I supposed to determine the authenticity either? Yeah, I’ve been […]

BAIT in Hawaii

Didn’t even know BAIT was considering coming to Hawaii, but the apparel and footwear retailer is open on Oahu. I haven’t been there and don’t know the parking situation, but they are at 1500 S. King St. Bonus – they have the Yeezy Wave Runners available (for now).

Mamba Day and Hurricane Lane

Wait… Just when is Mamba Day? Supposedly it’s tomorrow, Friday, August 24 that marks the release of the new Kobe A.D. But then again, the Internet says Mamba Day is April 13 (the date of Kobe’s last game). In any case, the Kobe A.D. release will probably coincide with the Oahu landfall of Hurricane Lane. […]

A Lucky Hurricane Lane Strategy

A lucky strategy when facing Hurricane Lane is to not face Hurricane Lane and be at the Adidas Employee Store instead. Hopefully there, you’ll make your own hurricane of purchases of three-stripped items like: Ultra Boost Harden Vol 2 In all kinds of colorways. Or maybe something from the Pharrell Williams line?

My Nike Wishlist Haul

Well, my chance at getting my Nike Wishlist came true. But first, I gotta say thanks to the No Ka Oi connection for a dream come true. I thought visiting the Nike Company Store in Beaverton, Oregon was a long shot, but the Nike gods were with me. Let’s rewind to a Thursday morning in […]

Nike Wishlist Update 4

From my (hopefully discounted) Nike Wishlist, I have to sadly remove the LeBrons. Although now a Laker, the King has his same feet that aren’t like mine. Therefore, the LeBron signature shoes just don’t fit me well. Getting into the hightop version was tough, but my eye was on the low top version. To get […]

Nike Wishlist Update 3

This wishlist update is a fast turnaround. Since I removed shoes from the list in Update 2,  of course, I need to fill those positions with other desires. Currently, the wishlist stands at: Air Max 97 VaporMax/Air VaporMax Plus ($190) Air Max 270 ($170) Odyssey React ($120) React Vapor Street Flyknit ($180) LeBron 15 Low […]

Nike Wishlist Update 2

It’s time for another Nike Wishlist update.

Nordstrom Redemption and Air Jordan Color-blindness

Nordstrom has redeemed itself, partially at least. Last you remember, Nordstrom cancelled my discounted order for a pair of Air Jordan 1 mid, in a shadow-like colorway (I’ve since learned that these are not THE premium Shadow AJ1 highs). They just couldn’t fulfill the order. But seeing the here-now-gone-tomorrow nature of these shoes, I persisted, […]

eBay Tip: Too New Isn’t Good

By now you know you can find completely random items at Ross. Most items are from last season or even older. But once in awhile, you find some newer items. In fact, some items are still being sold by retailers. Take these Air Jordan Trainer 2 Flyknits for example. While this model is still available […]
