Sample Sunday: Snakes in the Grass

Suede, leather, patent leather and mesh are all typical materials for basketball shoes. In recent years we’ve seen the implementation of woven materials and durable new plastics that have redefined how shoes are constructed. With all of that said, sneakerheads love weird Jordans, give us a rainbow fade pattern and we’re cool with it. We’re …

TBT: 2008 Media Day

Okay readers, take a moment and think about where you were during the late summer of 2008. The economy fell off a cliff around that time, George W. Bush was still POTUS and the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with the release of Iron Man 1. The NBA’s landscape looked completely different than now – we’re basically …

Today in Sneaker History marks the re-return of Michael Jordan to the NBA. To the surprise and dismay (of some) Mike decided to lace ’em up for one last run without wearing a Bulls uniform.

TBT: I Miss the Old Kanye

… Straight from the ‘Go Kanye. Chop up the soul Kanye, set on his goals Kanye… Believe it or not, at one point in history Kanye West wasn’t as polarizing as he is now. Even more unbelievable (joke), Kanye once wore Nike and Jordan! From his raps to the streets Mr. West was about that Nike …

HBD: Kukoc

Today we celebrate the birthday of international star, Toni Kukoc (he’s turning the big 5-0). Without Toni, we wouldn’t have had the Manu Ginobli and Tony Parkers of the world. The 1990 late 2nd round pick helped pioneer the “draft and stash” mentality we see now. At the time, European players had a stigma of being inferior …
