At Finishline: Air Jordan 2 “Radio Raheem”

 xl834274014

Personally I hate hate hate the Air Jordan 2 in almost every colorway (originals and retro’s) and I can’t say I like these either but I will say that this colorway give these kicks some hope. They also have a historical point to them harking back to the movie “Do The Right Thing”. It also gets nostalgia points for those old head (like me) who watched the movie when it originally came out.

Considering these released sometime last week I guess I’m not the only one who is just not that into the Air Jordan 2.

If you want them Finishline has them currently for $189.99 HERE

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – Cultureshoq x Ronnie Fieg

THE SEBAGO NEXUS PROJECT – CULTURESHOQ X RONNIE FIEG | A CLOSER LOOK

(wow)

Another pair of hot as fire shoes from the man himself. Is it art or is it footwear? And the pictures he take are fantastic!!!

Details from the blog:

For the fourth installment of the Sebago Nexus Project, CultureShoq.com and I present two new styles that I’ve been excited about since we went to Dominican Republic early this year. Priced at $140USD and limited to 48 pairs per style, the DT lug sole comes in a premium crazy horse brown leather with a removable kilt and leather laces, and the DT High is comprised of oily chestnut suede with a removable kilt/tassels. You can purchase these boots tomorrow Friday October 29th at 10am EST at the David Z flagship store as well as online at Davidz.com. Shots by@Sqmunro

Since this went on sale way back in October, I am guessing that they are gone now. Only 48 pairs makes them pretty exclusive and no question these things are works of art.

Just diggin in those sneaker crates (Ronnie Fief Edition)… October 28th 2010 on Ronnie Fieg


Diggin In The Sneaker Crates: Ronnie Fieg

(total heat from Ronnie Fieg)

I made a mistake. I should have been following what Ronnie Fieg has
been doing way more than I was. Hell, I should be wearing a pair of
his designs right now. I made this statement on Twitter and I stand
by it: if your top ten or 20 kicks/shoes of 2010 don’t include
Ronnie Fieg, then something is wrong with your list So to make up
for my error I will be focusing on Ronnie Fieg in my “digging in
the sneaker crates” series this month way more often then I would
normally focus on anyone or any particular brand. So don’t get mad
at me if for the rest of the month you see Ronnie all over the
place.


PIIQS x Supra = Contest and HOT KICKS

(a tasty contest)

(with tasty sneakers)

I have NO idea if this contest is still on or not nor will I take the time to look and see (of which would take 30-40 seconds). All I care about right now is the fact that these sneakers look freakin hot.

What that song say? Black and yellow?

I can only imagine holding it down with these bad boys and have a matching headphone. A real nice look I have to say.

If you wish you can head over to Sony to find out whatever it is you want to know about the contest I guess RIGHT HERE.

It looks like candy to me LOL


The Air Jordan 2011… Does it look like this or not?

(no wonder there hasn’t been a peep about these kicks in months)

Ok its a new year and promises have been made to who ever or where ever and such . Here we have what COULD be the Air Jordan 2011. Doing a search for the Air Jordan 2011 will show just what the sneaker looks like. IN FACT Dwane Wade of the Miami Heat wore the AJ 2011 (if they are really the AJ2011) on Christmas day.

(anybody notice D. Wade changing back to the AJ2010?)

So what’s the deal? Is this the sneaker? Many, and I mean MANY, sneaker blogs say yes it is. I actually hope THAT IT ISN’T and this is some sort of sample or maybe a AJ2011.5 version or a lite version or something.

TheShoeGame does it again… deep look inside @Mayor’s Closet

(and when I say closet, I mean room… with a security code!)

The Shoe Game is more than just a blog, its a freakin phenom of all blogs. If I wanted my blog to, one day, become the TechCrunch of all sneaker/shoe blogs, they are beating me too it LOL

If you visit The Shoe Game, you know that there is a nice community of people who comment on there and support the site and its all out of the ATL.

Now they bring us (with the help of Mayor, of course) a video of Mayor’s sneaker stash (which I am sad to say, does not include ANY shoes) and it is AWESOME.
