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?

My Greatest Pickup Ever!

Truthfully, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. On Instagram, I was seeing a lot of images of resdesigned, classic Nike silhouettes with that telltale red zip tie. These images were tagged #offwhite and #theten. Then I learned “The Ten” was a collaboration with designer Virgil Abloh. But as soon as Nike announced […]

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 […]

Under Armour Curry 2.5 and Ankle Braces?!?!

Just how does Steph Curry wear his signature Under Armour Curry 2.5 shoes while protected by his preferred Zamst A2-DX ankle braces? Even with the adjustable, wrap around fit of the “burrito lacing system,” I just don’t see how SC30 achieves a good fit as seen in the image above. It seems nearly impossible to […]

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 […]

My Japan Education: Nike ACG 07 KMTR

Just look at this new Nike creation, born from Nike Labs under the All Conditions Gear (ACG) label. The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR is built for the urban commuter. Featuring no laces but instead a draw string to tighten the upper and a forefoot strap secured by magnets, the KMTR is meant to be easily […]

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…
