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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Care About Sneakers?

Seriously, why? For many people, the ever-expanding culture that surrounds the shoe game seems pointless at times. Why should people spend large amounts of their hard-earned cash on a pair of shoes; mere fabric and glue? It’s a question that has crossed my mind too (yes – even me, a sneakerhead) so I took to […]

Sneakerhead Havens: wellgosh

Earlier today I travelled to Leicester. Why? You guessed it. To secure some kicks! Admittedly it’s been a long while since I’ve purchased shoes in store – in this current digital age I do a lot of my shopping online.   But today would be different; much different. Strolling around the pebbled streets of this […]

Like the buzzer that blares at the end of a basketball game, the alarm sounds. The air no longer holds tension, but apprehension for what lies ahead.   Behind the curtain-folds, the sun stands still. Deceptive. The air is chilled like a frozen February, warm yellow beams transform to gamma blue rays of light as […]

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 […]

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 […]

Raise Your Glasses!

Life is full of promises. Promises people make to us, promises we make to others and promises we make to ourselves. Today I’m going to talk about the latter.   But before I do, allow me to create for you the slightly exaggerated scenario at hand.   Now a lot of us have been in […]
