Sample Sunday: LBJ Hero Pack

Remember when LeBron samples were everywhere? From 2007 – 2014 unreleased, highly coveted and rare LeBron James Nikes popped up at secondary market shoe stores and on eBay for thousands of dollars. For shoes that never released there sure were a lot of them floating around… There was a ‘black market” of Nike samples operating …

Big Time Embiid

Joel Embiid has a big personality that matches his massive frame and the world cannot get enough of him. He’s personable, funny and competitive – no matter the sound bite Embiid is always about his business on the court. Injuries plagued his career early but this year it looks like he’s healthy and ready to …

Air Jordan 1: The SB Dunk Killer

With the building hype and anticipation of the latest Concepts x SB Dunk “Purple Lobster” release, I wondered if the seemingly dead SB Dunk has possibly been revived. This sudden thrust back into the limelight, made me think to ask, “What really happened to the SB Dunk?” Then, it all became clear. I figured out …

Grail Status

Grail Status – Extremely limited. Super expensive. Overhyped. Camp Outs. Almost mystical? What is a sneaker grail?

Vintage Heat: Air Max Heavyweights

In today’s installment of Vintage Heat we’re pleased to have a double feature of Air Max goodness. Air Maxes are some of the most beloved shoes across the complete footwear landscape and there are no two more recognizable designs than the OG Air Max 1 (saying they’re red is borderline disrespectful to the silhouettes’s clout) and the …

Lets rewind back to 2010 and the Air Jordan 11 retro landscape looked much different; instead of having 4+ pairs of 11s (mid, low, IE) releasing …

Wall Space: Michael Jordan Posters

In today’s installment of Wall Space we’re going to take a look back at some lesser-known Michael Jordan posters and ads from back in the day. Our only rules were that each poster must come from before the year 2000 and we wanted MJ posters that aren’t seen as often as others. So, we did …

Sample Sunday: Koji Special

Atmos’s retro of the Air Max 1 & 95 Animal Pack from 2006 generated all the hype a proper collaborative release should in 2018. Us simple American folk probably attribute the shoe’s success because of today’s sneaker climate and nothing more – “they’re worth a lot because someone told me they’re worth a lot”. A solid …

Call up Chris

Thanksgiving (ideally) embodies self-reflection on what we’re thankful for, family coming together, and food. On November 22, 2001 Chris Andersen became the first player called up from the NBDL to the NBA. What does that have to do with Thanksgiving? Not much, but it does play into being thankful. Many players around the league like …
