Around late 2020, I got into a frenzy of purchasingContinue reading “SLAM Kicks presents: Basketball Sneakers that Changed the Game”

My experience with the Tom Sachs/Nike Craft WearTesters program

When I first heard of the Tom Sachs/Nike Craft weartester program back in December, I was stoked. Getting the chance to wear test the Mars Yard 2.5 was going to be something great to experience.

Why Stance masks are a hit

I’ve been a big fan of Stance for the past 5 or so years. When I first heard of them I wasn’t too impressed with their work. They had designed these awkward looking socks with NBA players on them that were cartoonish, and I wasn’t really feeling the vibe with them. Eventually I found myselfContinue reading “Why Stance masks are a hit”

Low and behold two years later, the shirts, most of them, have poppedContinue reading “Nike X Filip Pagowski NBA team shirts”

Unboxing the Air Max 90 “Nordic”

When I first saw these kicks, I have to admit I did like them. My good friend recommend I get a pair, but I wasn’t super in love with them. Especially since they could only really be worn around Christmas time. So naturally, I passed. It wasn’t until about two weeks from Christmas 2020 thatContinue reading “Unboxing the Air Max 90 “Nordic””

Adidas X Toy Story Collaboration

This collaboration is a few years old, though one of my favorite collaborations. I’m a huge Pixar fan, and love Toy Story, part III being my favorite. I didn’t follow this collaboration closely, though I wish I did. I came across these two pairs Christmas 2019, as I was shopping for my children. My sonContinue reading “Adidas X Toy Story Collaboration”

Nike Adapt BB E.A.R.L

When I first head about this shoe dropping, I was ecstatic. I had missed the first release of the Nike Hyperadapt 1.0, the first self-lacing shoe based off of the sought after, Nike Air Mag. The price point of $700 was just too high for my budget. However, when Nike released a similar model builtContinue reading “Nike Adapt BB E.A.R.L”
