Wall Space: Classic Adidas

  Before the days of social media posts and influencers there was good ol’ print advertising. Brands had a page or two to get the word out about their newest products and to throw some serious shade at their competitors. Why not be bold? A lot of our readers can probably relate to cutting up …

MJ Mondays: Underrated Jay

When Jordan Brand transitioned away from using a numbered system (ie. Jordan I, II, III etc.) many fans started to dismiss the brand. It’s common knowledge within the sneaker community that “cherished” Jordans do not exist beyond the XIV (the last shoe worn by MJ in a Bulls jersey) – lets call the I-XIV “traditional …

Sample Sunday: Adidas Kobe 1

Yes kids, you read that correctly Adidas Kobe 1 not the Nike Kobe 1 we’ve seen so much of recently. Bryant’s footwear career has evolved greatly from the days of appearing on Moesha, but there was a time when Kobe was synonymous with Adidas.

Sample Sunday: LeBron x Ohio State

It’s no suprise that LeBron James would have attended The Ohio State university (my high school math teacher went to Ohio State and always made a point to emphasize ‘the’ in Ohio State).

D.C. Chillin’

Everyone has their favorite shoe model; it might be based off of personal preference, it could be influenced by region, you might like them because your favorite rapper wore them… reasoning is irrelevant – we just love the shoes because we love them (personally, my favorite is the Nike 2k4 Huarache). One of the biggest …
