Recently, I had an opportunity to get my hands on a pair of Lonzo Ball’s notorious Big Baller Brand shoes.

I …

Forgotten Shox

With a catalog as deep as Nike Basketball’s, some shoes get lost in the crowd. Technology operates in the same manner. Who remembers Palm Pilots? Not many people, the personal organizer existed in the early years of handheld technologies alongside cell phones. A few years later cell phones would start offering all the benefits of …

Unibrow Down

The Kentucky Wildcats are one of the most polarizing programs in the NCAA. Mentioning the name alone tends to invoke strong feelings. Wildcat Fans tend to use a popular phrase from 2014’s The Interview, “They hate us because they ain’t us.” In reality though, Kentucky doesn’t win all that often; actually, sustained success in the modern …
