The Shoe That Was Meant to Be

In the end, I guess it was just meant to be. In January of 2016, I had ordered the Nike Air Max 2015 in black and white from Nike’s online clearance section. Priced at $149.97, down from $190, the shoes felt good but not $150 good. So I returned them. Forward to November 2016 and […]

How Long Does Two-Day Shipping Take?

So as Cyber Monday wound down, I learned of deep discounts at Cole Haan online. Along with a one-day discount of 50%, clearance items were already marked down 30%. On top of that, in partnership with Shop Runner, there was free two-day shipping. Cyber Monday was November 28. It’s now December 7, and there’s still […]

Flight 23 Takes Off in Hawaii

Flight 23 by Footaction officially took flight on Friday, November 18, 2016 with its grand opening in the International Market Place. Technically, this storefront is not really a retail store. It’s an Air Jordan-focused addon to the adjacent Footaction. The workers roam between the two stores, and all purchases are made at Footaction. But still […]

Discounted Aloha

I don’t know why local clothing designer Sig Zane has his items available on, and I don’t really care. I guess Sig has collaborations with Hurley that is affiliated with Nike. While I love the designs, I wasn’t about to pay full price for the goods. Luckily, now that summer is coming to a close, this […]

NYDC16 Observations

So what other nuances did I observe on the East Coast in DC and NYC? Five Guys Burgers and Fries Well, I already mentioned that Five Guys Burgers and Fries is nothing new.

Air Max Lunar1 "Photo Blue"

Returned my Air Max Lunar1

In July/August 2014, I was stoked that I was stocked with the Nike Air Max Lunar1. The Lunar update of the Air Max 1 has been awesome (and stylish too), but the other day, this happened. A part of the outsole separated from the shoe itself. I thought I had something stuck to the bottom […]

Roshes Still Rule

I can’t help but look at the shoes of pedestrians. What I see on NYDC16 is lots of Nike Roshes. Lots. Probably the prevalent sneaker that I’ve noticed. There are quite a few Nike TR trainers too. For all the success of Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, I saw lots of GS hats […]

It’s Okay to Cry

After the Cavaliers victory over the Warriors in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, it’s okay to be overwhelmed by emotions as picked up by Nike. Even the King was overcome. But it’s okay to cry.

Kicks for the Older Generation

Call it what you want, a blunder or pure genius, but the latest low cut, white colorway of Under Armour’s signature for Steph Curry is in the spotlight. Although truly a performance basketball shoe, the white colors of the “Chef” impart an older feel for these kicks. Check out this fictitous commercial made by Jimmy […]

No Go for These #RossFinds

Had to say no to both of these shoes found at Ross aka #rossfinds. While each had its merits, they didn’t win me over in the end. LeBron 11 Low I’ve been looking for shoes featuring the full length Air Max 360 for a long time. Finally, I came across these LeBron 11 Lows in […]
