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 […]

I Got No Jacks

Is this becoming a theme? No Frogs, no FOGs, and now no Jacks. Oh BTW, Happy Birthday Travis Scott! To commemorate being 28 years old, good old TS let go a few more pairs of his Cactus Jack Air Jordan 1. I thought I had a chance but no, that top tier stuff still eludes […]

I Have No Fear of God

Literally, I have no Fear of God (FOG). Nike and designer Jerry Lorenzo are at it again partnering the swoosh with FOG and releasing two original silhouettes, the odd Moc and the old school Raid. Yes, that Air Raid with the signature criss-crossed double straps and made for the outdoor court. But the FOG Raid […]

Post Bonkers Recovery

The only way to recover from repeatedly striking out at Bonkers (on Saturday) is to drink the new Orange Vanilla Coke. Getting that Nike SB Dunk Walk the Dog shoe was harder than I would have thought, and no, I could not get them.

Anthem Is a Shoe Palace?

Say what? That Anthem store in Pearlridge Phase 1 Uptown is actually a Shoe Palace in disguise? The employees wear the SP uniform and all plastic bags have the SP branding. But… this location gets the hype releases like the recent Yeezy Clays although only one full size run. And sadly, this shoe guy was […]
