My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015 – @marcohenry

2015 was an interesting year in sneakers for me. It was a year where I bought noticeably fewer sneakers than in years past, but wrote about them more than ever before. The culture has exploded in the last few years, and 2015 was the biggest yet. From Kanye West and adidas taking over the world, …

The Best Sneaker References in Hip Hop in 2015

The 10 Best Sneaker References in Hip Hop in 2015

Hip hop and sneakers go together like any of those stereotypical pairings that are often used to describe how two things congruently come together; peanut butter and jelly, bread and butter, lamb and tuna fish, yin and yang, or whatever analogy you were raised on — all fall short of how important and impactful the …

My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015 – @kustoo

The sneaker game in 2015 changed a lot. Whether it was lifestyle or performance, things started to move and the old favorites were no longer the clear winner. As someone that tries to balance between those two worlds, the subtle changing of the guards made for a very interesting year. When I say interesting, I mean hectic. Keeping …

Los Angeles Lakers Short Shorts

Remember When the Lakers Wore Short Shorts?

Who wears short shorts? Well on this day in 2007 the Lakers did, for at least one half of their game against the Boston Celtics. For some reason the team’s powers-that-be decided to pay homage to the rivalry and their predecessors by throwing it back and wearing shorts that John Stockton would approve of. They …

Travis Peterson Top Sneakers 2015

My Top Ten Sneakers of 2015 – @thetravpete

It was supposed to be great. We were supposed to be riding hoverboards and gallivanting in our power-lacing sneakers. In reality, 2015 looked far different than it was depicted in the movies thirty years ago, which might come as a letdown to some people. And I’m going to take a contrarian viewpoint from those of …

My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015 – @MrBrando3

In 2015 I decided to chill and only cop 10 sneakers, so that should make my list pretty simple, right? Nah. I didn’t get everything I wanted because we all face #sadderday no matter how good the plug is and sometimes we have not-buyer’s remorse when you think a pair might sit longer than they …

2015 was one of the best years the sneaker business has seen. The amount of diversity available to sneaker enthusiasts was incredible.

Tim Hardaway, Golden State Warriors, 1993.

Today in Sneaker History: Hardaway Loses His Way

As one of the members of the Run TMC trio, Tim Hardaway is undoubtedly in the record books. But you might be surprised to hear about one of the reasons why. On December 27, 1991, Tim Hardaway lost his touch. One of the game’s best point guards just couldn’t get anything to go for him. …
