I vowed that if my bracket won this year’s tournament then I would buy shoes from the popular Adidas basketball lineup. There are no losers in the current lineup of Crazy Explosives (low), Harden Vol. 1, and the Dame 3. Currently, Adidas adorns the remaining Kansas and UCLA squads. Lonzo balls in the Hardens. Oddly […]

For 2017, Nike has majorities in 9 of the 16 seeded positions. Adidas has two (#13 and 15) while Under Armour has 3 (#8, 14, and 16). UA is not represented by teams in the top four seeds. Nike and UA are tied at the six and seven spots.
Not much to say other than the powerhouse conferences have an affinity to Nike. The ACC has the most teams this year with eight followed by seven from the Big Ten.
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 […]
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 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 […]
Wow, I was hopeful but uncertain. But sure enough, Nike pulled through with great customer service and support, approving my return of my Air Max Lunar1. Although two years old and technically right outside the defective products period, I had nothing to lose by trying a return. Nike.com purchases: Flawed shoes, apparel and gear can be […]
I don’t know why local clothing designer Sig Zane has his items available on Nike.com, 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 […]
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. Unlike Hawaii where lines were constantly long, there were no lines at many of the Five Guys we passed. Jordan Retros and Nike […]
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 […]
Reaching the NikeLab store at 11:30 when it opens at 12:00, and you’re on a time schedule. That is sadness.
