The Life and Culture of Kicks

The Next Thing

On Sale: adidas Rose 4.0


[gonna get these and play ball in them]

Nothing to say (until I get them and do a test run). I like the way they look. Some of my friends think it’s hideous but I like them. There is just something about how the design works makes me think they will look great on my feet.

Not a fan of the duo-tone though… most of the colorways are duotone. Probably why it’s either these or the all black ones that will be the most popular (until they come up with more colorways)

Air Max 2011 is a Good Look

(starting to like this more than the 2009)

This may be another hit. I’ll admit I wasn’t to into this but I have to say I can’t wait to see it in person.

The 2009 Air Max is still the best to me but I guess when these start coming out in February we will see if they stay as the best.

FYI: the Air Max 2009 really got popular in NYC AFTER the price went down from 160 to 110-130 dollars.

Pics of the AirJordan 2011… you know, the one they didn’t want you to see

(wow… seriously?)

So after all the take down emails and so forth saying this ISN’T the new Air Jordan 2011 and how this is a  sample, it turns out not only is this the new Air Jordan 2011 but the “sample” was spot on.

Sooooooooo…. what do you think? Looks like some cross between the Air Jordan 11 (get it? 2011… Air Jordan 11?) and some new tech. of course being the blog that this is, you know I’m gonna drop my opinion on ya so here it is…


Limited Edition DeLorean NIKE 6.0

(now if I could only run 88 miles an hour)

It umm…. doesn’t look that great, but it limited and its based off of the DeLorean, so  hey, why not folks!

By the way… JUST LOVE the sole of these kicks. I would want these just because of the sole. Its supposed to represent the typical 80’s stop light (of which the DeLorean has).

First seen at Autoblog (yes,, the limited edition NIKE 6 DeLorean will be released on Friday the 26th (Black Friday) this pair of kicks has a unibody upper (no stitches here buddy) and a matte finish silver color. There is also a stamp on the tongue that is supposed to be a nudge to the Irish factory where the DMC – 12 was made.

And for the fans of having boxes be just as special as the kicks, the box also opens up gull wing style.

There are only 1000 pairs of these kicks going to be made. I guess that is what they mean by limited.  Who is getting these?


Air Jordan Fusion 6 + 17 = dude… WTF?

(no WAY I’m letting this one go)

I gonna have ALLOT to say about this one, for for now all I am gonna write is this…. Whahhahahahaaaahaha????!!!!

(PS – there are some good things to say about these kicks… the rest are, let me say, not so good)

Air Jordan x UNDERTOW… on hawt looking sneaker

(ummmm, me thinks Jordan should team up more often)

Now this is one good looking mix of colors and style. I think Brand Jordan should just let this be a general release (or at least a limited one) and give people what they want… a good colorway for a great sneaker.

Ok, I’m just gonna say it – Air Jordan 2010, while may be one of the best Air Jordans made, looks like crap. Yeah I said it. These sneaker are a pair of kicks that need you to be very specific with materials and colorways in order for it to look good.

Now lets be clear, I am not talking about performance, I am talking about looks.

Please team up with somebody Brand Jordan, and get it poppin! This is an awesome colorway and collabo and to not allow others to get their hands on it seems a little off.

SneakerFreaker review of the Nike Hyperfuse


The Hyperfuse may just be the most popular basketball sneaker that you may never buy… but hey, I could be wrong.

Personally I just don’t see people getting them for casual wear, but if you play ball, you will want to at least try these on. MAAAAAAaaaad light.

Why do I think people won’t get them? Nike Zoom Kobe V – the lightest basketball sneaker that also performs nevertheless, at least in NYC, you will not see too many people wearing them. Just not wearing them. No matter how many colorway, it just doesn’t show up.

But hey, I could be wrong. I mean NYC isn’t the only place that buys sneakers (although sometime I may make it sound like that lol). On thing is for sure, the sneakernets love these kicks.

The LeBron 8… the sneakernets speaks!!!

(looking good for LeBron)

The LeBron 8  preview shots has hit the sneakernets and the sneakernets responds…

For a sneaker that you can’t see the whole thing of, it sure got some interesting opinions from people. Me personally, I love it! I can not imagine how this sneaker can look bad given some of these shots – shots of which basically tell you what the sneaker looks like.

Its not going to be as light as the Kobe V’s (or IS it???) but I am sure they will perform really nicely. I may, just maybe, get a pair and play in them to see just how well they play.

But as far as the look department is conserned, they look real good so far. Can’t imagine what they are going to do with it when the colorways start coming out…

The Sneakernets SPEAKS!!!

BUT HERE IS THE QUESTION… what are people saying online on some of the biggest sneaker sites on the net? Lets take a look.


H Williams Spring 2010

(a very interesting look to say the least)

Yeah I read this over a month ago but I wanted to still post about it so here it is. First heard of it on Running With Heels. At first I wasn’t too impressed but then I went over to H Williams site and had to change my mind.

Some really nice stuff going on over there. For more on H. Williams (who needs a first name?) head over HERE.
