Kicks Analysis 2017 #4: Shoes of Champions

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 […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #1: Shoe Sponsorship

The first kicks analysis of every Big Dance is the overall makeup of the dancing shoes, specifically who makes’em. My first kicks examination failed for several teams – North Dakota, Middle Tennessee, Dayton, NC Central, Vermont, Iona, and the play-in matchups. Obviously, I’ll have to update my charts after the first round when I get […]

Launching Kicks Analysis 2017

Last year, I was late with my 2016 Kicks Analysis with the Warriors of Hawaii making a run in the Dance. But in 2017, Hawaii’s done (although they did get to play in the postseason), so I have some time to launch this year’s Kicks Analysis – a little early but also a little incomplete. […]

I Keen, You Ken?

Instead of those wimpy water shoes that don’t cost a lot and don’t offer any support, I got me a pair of Keens. Instead of getting my kicks wet and muddy while hiking, I figured Keens would be the best alternative. And let me say they did not disappoint while hiking to Secret Falls on […]

My Next Shoe Venture – Allbirds

The world’s most comfortable shoe? I’m there… or at least, I plan to give Allbirds a try. Only available in one model, the Wool Runner, I’d like to make my own assessment of their comfort level, especially with the 30-day return policy, but the colorway has to be right. The black and grey colorways are […]

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 […]

NMD BAPE Denied

Tried for the Adidas NMD and BAPE collaboration but was denied (as expected). Adidas had a mechanism in place to randomly allow visitors to the online sale page, kinda effective.

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 […]
