Six Years of Hammertime on Krater

Six Years of Hammertime on Krater

Well, I don’t know how to approach this other to say it’s been an awesome six-year run of Hammertime on Krater when Davey, Gregg, and Shawnee debuted their morning show on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. As all us fans have noticed, Davey D, the facilitator of the morning mayhem, has been absent from the air […]

Today’s Mood

Today’s mood after fighting through the release of the Air Jordan 1 OG Black Toe aka “the Satins.” These highly coveted sneaks launched at multiple sites with the Footsites, aka Foot Locker, Foot Action, Champs, and Eastbay, being the most plentiful. But because of the demand, each site lagged as users made their purchases. I’m […]

The Nike Joyride Gives Me No Joy

Sadly, Nike’s newest runner featuring its bouncy beaded Joyride does not bring me joy. I ordered a pair of the Joyride Run Flyknit with my member access, and I even went a half size up based on early reviews by Foamer and Jami. They do look awesome.   But when I tried on my Joyride, […]

Copping Yeezys wearing Kith New Balances

Today Was Yeezy Day

Yes, I guess “Yeezy Day” is an actual thing where past and present Yeezy kicks are made available once again. Sounds like a kicks lover’s dream, but in reality, it really wasn’t. It was prolonged torture going after drop after drop that started at 3am Hawaii time. And being Yeezy Day, the releases came throughout […]

A SNS Raffle Win Isn’t

I’ve been lucky enough to have won two sneaker raffles from Sneakersnstuff (SNS) over the past year. My first raffle win was for the Yeezy 700 Inertia colorway, and my most recent raffle success landed me the Air Jordan 1 Retro Gym Red colorway. But as I’ve come to disappointintly learn, a SNS raffle win is […]

Yeezy Boost Names

I never really thought much about the colorway names of recent Yeezy Boost releases, but really their names are interesting. Take the upcoming Tephra 700 model releasing this week. What’s a tephra? When a volcano erupts it will sometimes eject material such as rock fragments into the atmosphere. This material is known as tephra. Source. […]

ResExp: Coppingkicks Notes

Just some notes about #coppingkicks before I forget: The rush before a drop. The frustration of site issues, crashes, lag, etc. The hope of a successful checkout. The devastation of getting the L. Hope renewed during a restock. Devastated one or two more times or perhaps, salvation. The disappointment when the price of that W […]

I Got No Cactus Plant

Do you see a common theme going on here? No FoG. No Jacks. No Jordan Pop. No Mars Yard Overshoe. No Cactus Jacks (again). No donuts. So of course, following this trend, when the Nike collaboration with Cactus Plant Flea Market dropped this morning, I got another no.

I Do Have a Cactus Jack Jordan

So I’m still bummed about missing out on the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 for the third time. But I can take some solace in knowing that I actually do own a Cactus Jack labeled Air Jordan. This is the lowkey pair but probably the most performance-based model via the Air Jordan 33. Still though, […]

A Morning of Stress

Bottom line: I didn’t get a pair of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 that released on Nike SNKRS. I was there, and I was ready with three phones and three accounts. But I got hit with error after error just trying to navigate the purchasing process. Apple Pay didn’t register. I think I mistyped […]

Last of the True Forms

There it goes, the last of my Yeezy 350 True Forms. Launched in Europe, I’m glad that many European retailers ship to the US, but it’s my American fault for not learning the European shoe sizes. Otherwise a True Form would have been a personal keeper  if I knew that size EUR 44 2/3 equaled […]
