The Glass Sneaker – Poem

If you’ve read one of my previous posts, you would know that I see sneakers as art and the sneaker culture as the gallery that contains it. So as well as regular posts, this blog contains poems that showcase the sneaker culture in an artistic way.   That being said, check out this Cinderella-inspired, sneaker-themed poem written by […]

A Day In The Life

Summer is a great time for flexing kicks and additionally a great time to go out and see what other heat can be acquired. So yesterday, myself (in my adidas ZX Flux “Zebra”), my brother (Vans) and cousin (Nike Air Force 1 low) went out for a bit of sneaker window shopping, and we weren’t […]

Drake Set to Release Air Jordan 10 “OVO”

Let’s take a minute to chill from all the Drake/Meek Mill beef and focus on a more important issue… the kicks!   Jordan Brand have linked up with Drake’s very own record label OVO to bring a clean and classy aesthetic to the 10th sneaker of the MJ numbered series.

Would You Wear JORDANS To Prom?

So as you may know (or not) we’re in that time of year again; prom season. Whether a black tie event, annual ball or soirée, the end of the academic year qualifies as a time for celebration, reflection and of course, a time to get suited and booted.   Now as far as traditional apparel […]

Bugs Bunny Meets Air Jordan

“Ehh…what’s up doc?” Who remembers watching Looney Tunes back in the day? Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and co doing their thing and boy were we entertained! So I guess it made sense all those 23 years ago for one of the most popular cartoon characters to team up with one of the best ballers; Michael […]

Why Care About Sneakers? (Part 2) – Not Your Average History Lesson

The million-dollar question “why care about sneakers?” was one I started to answer in a piece I wrote last month (yet to read it? Click here to wise up). As it mentions, “Sneakerheads love sneakers not just because of how they look, but because of its history and what the shoe represents.” Well today it’s […]

Happy Birthday Michael Jordan

In 1963 a legend was born. 52 years later that legend lives on; as does the legacy he left simultaneously on the hardwood and in the sneaker industry. Michael Jordan (or MJ if you prefer cooler nicknames) was only 21 when he first stepped onto the Chicago Stadium court for his NBA debut. I seriously […]

NBA All-Star Weekend 2015 Sneaker Releases

Today marks the start of the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend, hosted this year in New York City, USA. The next three days will see rim-rocking dunks, buzzer-beating three-pointers, actor/comedian Kevin Hart returning in the Celebrity All-Star Game and of course, the 64th NBA All-Star Game itself (plus much, much more).   This weekend will also […]

Not Your Average Sneakerhead

What comes to mind when you hear the word “sneakerhead”? I used to imagine them as totally swagged out beings who owned a mass of shoes. A population that could be found camping outside their local (or afar) sneaker store for hours/days on end waiting for a new release. They probably knew the name of every […]
