We celebrate The Sneaker Girl’s (14th) birthday and look forward to JumpmanBostic’s 52.01692487th birthday.

We field questions from our listeners, which includes questions like: “Is it tacky to wear sneakers in a wedding?” “Is it ok for guys to wear pink sneakers?” And “Is there a such thing as a TOO many sneakers?”

In “Diary of a Shoe Salesman”, someone literally described themselves as a “release date liason”.

The Sneaker Girl has a date?

Caesar goes on his first of many epic rants on the Adidas Yeezy. Specifically, the Yeezy 750 Boost.

Shout out to Chris Henderson. His response to our show is the launch pad to our “This Week In Stupid” segment where Caesar defends Chris Paul and Marshawn Lynch from sports media’s tendencies to build petty narratives.

Is there a such thing as a “sneaker celebrity”? Has social media given some folks in the sneaker community the big head?

And finally, we discuss if entertainers have become more influential in sneaker culture than the athlete.

In a moment of “This Week In Stupid” history, a man tries to steal a pair of Nike KDs by stuffing them down his pants.

We take questions and comments from our listeners, including the question “What sneaker did we regret buying?”

We answer more questions submitted by our listeners, including a comment by one of The Sneaker Girl’s secret admirers.

How dope would it be if Jordan brand did do a collab with JumpmanBostic.

We discuss which sneakers we were looking forward to back in 2015.

Can NOT be a fan of an athlete, or collaborator, and still buy their shoes?

2015 was the year of long names for sneakers.

In This Week In Stupid, a woman cuts up her husband’s sneakers after she finds out he was cheating on her.

We discuss if the brands owe us as the sneaker

We discuss the credibility of #TeamEarly, people who post pictures of releases weeks before they come out, and wonder how many of those pairs are fakes.

Even back then JumpmanBostic and Caesar argued over Jordan Fusions, with JumpmanBostic suggesting that Jordan Brand should remaster them.

Do people still look at K-Swiss sneakers as a women’s shoe?

Nothing is more annoying than the group of people who belittle others who go after a retro by highlighting that they have the OGs. No. One. Cares.

We answer some questions submitted in from our listeners.

We touch on the death of Stuart Scott and his impact on ESPN and sports media.

Even back then we were pushing for more women collaborations and PEs.

In This Week In Stupid, a judge allowed a man to use his sneakers as collateral in a court case. And Warren Sapp gets extra petty with a pair of cleats gifted to him from his alma mater.

Remember when Rift Raff tried to finesse everyone into believing that he had a $700 sneaker collaboration releasing through Finish Line?

JumpmanBostic once again threatens to shoot Caesar in the foot.

And finally, Caesar and The Sneaker Girl try to convince JumpmanBostic to buy some plush Yeezy slippers.

The coronvirus has disrupted life throughout the entire country, sneakers included. In both the industry and community side of sneaker culture, people are questioning their priorities during this epidemic.

The brand with the 3 Stripes had to be guilt tripped into closing down after the CEO came out and basically said that closing down was for p*ssies.

That whole ordeal leads to the next story, where a few people on Twitter called out The Full Size Run after they did a video promoting Adidas and yet had nothing constructively critical to say about the above situation. Integrity ain’t for everyone.

Caesar looks forward to upcoming releases such as the Nike “Space Junkie” Pack. But with this ongoing pandemic, releases are being pushed back to a more favorable release date.

Adidas has teamed up with Google and EA Sports to create a soccer shoe that measures your movements as your play through Jacquard by Google. The data is then transferred to the Adidas GMR app and to EA Sports’ FIFA mobile game to unlock rewards.

Raf Simons joins Prada as co-creative director alongside Ms. Prada. Their goal is to reestablish creativity over commercial results within the fashion world.

And finally, Ronda Rousey becomes the newest member of the Mizuno endorsee family. But at this point in her career, will she be enough to bring brand awareness to masses?

Has Sarena finally come around on SB Dunks?

Dunks and Geeno formed a short-lived alliance, only to have Dunks turn on Geeno for his lack of “cooking.

We would probably be more impressed with the Sacai X Nike collabs if we hadn’t seen it overdone already by Off-White.

Are the “UNC” Air Jordan 3s the “Tax Return Shoe” of 2020?

Are the Yeezy colorways becoming played out?

Reebok was on such a nice streak. Now it seems that they’re trying to ruin that momentum with their upcoming Answer 5 releases.

New Balance teams up with the NBA to produce “AUTHENTIC” content. Whatever that is.

Draymond Green signs a multi-million dollar deal with Converse. Meh…..

VF Corp, owner of The North Face and VANS, donated $140k to the charities of slain Timberland VP who was murdered at their HQ a few weeks ago.

PUMA was voted “2020 Top Employer of Europe”. They were modest enough to sing their own praises.

Speaking of PUMA, one of their trainers went viral due to its slight resemblance to Adolf Hitler. This isn’t the fault of PUMA as much as it is a Rorschach Test gone wrong.

We get through a number of stories for “This Week In Stupid”, which includes a situation in Brooklyn where a young lady was beaten robbed by a gang of teenage boys for her Air Jordan 1s.

And finally, Caesar goes through some 1 Star Reviews for the GOAT app.

All collaborations aren’t created equal. They need to make sense and be authentic. Partnering with random celebrities for the sake of name recognition has a shelf life.

CAN JORDAN BRAND PLEASE PUT THE AIR JORDAN 1 BACK IN THE VAULT?!!!!

A listener calls in to ask what alternate jersey–i.e., Michael Jordan #12 Bulls road jersey–Mitchell and Ness should release one day.

Brands are still ignoring the vast segment of sneakerheads with large feet, why?

We list the retros we want to see re-released. This leads to a conversation about the types of people the different brands allow to be decision makers.

We take issue with the way the Don C. X Nike Air Force 1 was released through a credit card company. Some people never had a chance.

Fresh from NBA All-Star weekend in Chicago, Dunks tells us how the sneaker releases went down that week in the Windy City.

Joel Embiid’s first signature sneaker is coming out later this year. It’s with Under Armour. While he’s a good enough player to have his own sneaker, is being with Under Armour to big of a hill to climb?

Dunks says that there’s a new bot capable of breaking in on the Nike SNKRS app. It’s gonna cost you though.

First Nike, now Adidas. The coronavirus is taking out everyone and everything over in China. With that being said, it seems like the brand’s concerns aren’t in the appropriate place.

Nike is looking into providing same day shipping. They’ve teamed up with AI company Geek+ to improve warehouse efficiency to provide such a service. But of course it’s only being tested overseas.

Nike is among a number of brands opposing a bill in Tennessee that they believe discriminates against their LGBT employees. It allows for agencies to prevent LGBT people from adopting, among other things, based on their individual morality and religious beliefs.

Former Stormy Daniels lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was just found guilty for trying to extort Nike for millions of dollars. His defense? Literally, LITERALLY, his defense was that his clients told him to “Just Do It”. We can’t make this up.

There was a rumor that Jeremy Lorenzo broke off his partnership with Nike. Long story short, it’s false.

Finally, we touch on the all out f@ckery that was the Supreme X Oreo collab. Packs of the red branded cookies are going for THOUSANDS of dollars on the resell market. Beyond that one pack of cookies, will this do anything to benefit Oreo? Or did this do more to further legitimize the Supreme brand.

The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 isn’t living up to expectations at HQ. What will happen first? Nike ends the Adapt BB line or they drop the price?

Are the Off-White X Air Jordan 5s really that dope? Like seriously…

What was a better collection? The “BHM” collection by any brand or Nike’s “All-Star” collection?

We talk about Kawhi Leonard’s “first(?)” signature sneaker with New Balance.

Was Kanye and Adidas out of line by having people trade their Fear of God 1s off of their feet for Yeezy Quantums?

And finally, we talk about the opportunities that are given to people of color in the sneaker industry. More specifically, people from Detroit.

Dunks isn’t sure if he’s a hypebeast or not.

In-N-Out finally made something appealing, and it wasn’t their food.

Sarena ran into Wale and fanned out.

Do sneakerheads buy sneakers more for looks or for comfort?

Caesar goes in on this year’s Nike “BHM” Collection. This prompts response from Nike CEO John Donuhoe.

Speaking of the Swoosh, their Vaporfly Next% and their Alphafly, both avoid being banned before the Tokyo Olympics. With the timing of the ruling coming so close to the Olympic trials, many sneaker brands, not named Nike, are left feeling extra salty.

It’s not a good time to be a sneakerhead in China. In fact, it’s not a good time to be in China period thanks to the coronavirus.

We find out that Dunks will flip almost ANYTHING.

And finally, we look into the consistent failure that is Under Armour. There are too many issues to name. From micromanaging Steph Curry’s shoe design and production numbers, to pushing an unsuccessful slide that NO ONE wanted other than Kevin Plank’s wife because it was named after her, to not having a clear mission or brand identity. The question now becomes is it too much, and too late, for Under Armour to overcome and recover from?

We celebrate recording our 250th episode, and Dunks was “DYING” to celebrate. (Inside joke).

Caesar and David Banner become best friends after he writes an article about his Ewing Rogue collab.

This past week had to be one of the weakest and worse in terms of sneaker releases.

Rhetorical question, do people still buy sneakers based on what sales as opposed to what they individually like?

Are hypebeast beginning to turn on Yeezys?

We give our thoughts on this year’s Nike “BHM” collection and the J. Balvins X Air Jordan 1 High.

And finally, we talk to Jaysse Lopez, owner of Urban Necessities, about what went into his decision to stop the influx of resell greed surrounding Kobe Bryant’s death.

We reached out to Jaysse Lopez, owner of Urban Necessities, over his stance concerning the resell communities actions in to aftermath of Kobe’s death. Of course we give our two cents. But tune in to next week’s when we’ll have him on to discuss what moved to him to take a stand.

The Pensole Academy is partnering with HBCUs to give people of color a bridge into the sneaker industry, while simultaneously creating a diverse pool of talent. Thank you Mr. Edwards.

Foot Locker is creating a new platform….. Well, kind of, but not really. Foot Locker promises that this new platform will be bigger, stronger, faster, better, and borderline sexier than their current app. We’re paraphrasing on a few of those points, but you get the picture.

We almost made it an entire episode without Caesar getting pissed off by something. That is, until Dunks brings up the tweet about Kobe Bryant by Jon Wexler’s wife. There goes our Adidas invite…

And finally, we talk to Jacques Slade to get a sense of the overall reactions in LA to Kobe Bryant’s untimely death. After giving Caesar shit, he delivers a beautiful speech to end the show.

Caesar breaks his own rule by stating that, despite them being Pink, he would wear Aleali May’s Air Jordan 6. 

Jonah Hill, yes, Jonah Hill has joined the 3 stripes. Why and how? We’re still trying to figure it out ourselves. Apparently Adidas Originals thinks he’s going to move the needle.

Beyonce just dropped her Ivy Park collab with Adidas. Overall, it seems like an initial success. But we can’t help but wonder why it felt like the response was low within the ladies side of things in the sneaker community. 

Name ONE dope Stella McCartney collab. Just one.

EBay is looking to regain it’s resell crown, GOAT seems like they’re leading the pack with innovative and fresh ideas. Who will ultimately win the battle of the sneaker resell marketplace? 

We’re collectively awaiting the inevitable disappointment of this year’s BHM collection from every one of the brands. Will they ever listen or get it right?

Target is looking to challenge Nike and Under Armour in both athlesieure and sportswear apparel. They believe that not only will they compete, but that they’ll establish a billion dollar brand within the first year. What are their chances?

Nike is literally giving their competition a RUN for their money with their new Vaporfly Next%. The shoes are allegedly so good that they’re being banned from certain competitions. 

Rick Pitino has finally reached a settlement with Adidas over the NCAA basketball scandal from a few years ago that got him fired from Louisville. 

And finally, in This Week In Stupid, one of the country’s most notorious gangsters from the 1920s and 30s is still committing crimes from the grave, attempting to steal a pair of shoes at knife-point.

Kobe Bryant leapfrogs Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all time scoring list. This causes a debate as to whether a case could be made that Kobe was now better than MJ. Nike tried to commemorate the moment by releasing an exclusive NikeiD, but no one on the crew seemed too impressed.

Apparently The Sneaker Girl has nice hair.

Some idiot in Memphis tried to steal some limited edition Nike LeBron 12s using a trailer.

We remember the dysfunction that was the Melo X Air Jordan 1 release through Footaction.

JumpmanBostic STILL hates the “Bel-Air” Air Jordan 5.

We revisit the chaos that was the “Legend Blue” Air Jordan 11 release, including a would be thief that lost his life attempting to steal a pair.

Why didn’t people like the “Washed Denim” Air Jordan 6s?

This past Christmas season was a good time to have picked up some OG sneaker grails. While everyone was chasing the hype, there was a lot of deals to take advantage of.

At what point will people grow tried of retros and nostalgia?

We try saving Dunks from himself, talking him out of getting a particular tattoo on his ankle.

Dunks hates low top Jordans. Of course we don’t let him get away with it.

We breakdown the best cereal to eat by race. Spoiler alert, regular Cheerios are for white people. Apparently.

Nike is releasing a sneaker that will reduce, and cut down on, injuries for runners. So, what about the other athletes?

Speaking of leaving others out, Nike is being accused of forgetting who helped them get where they are. Mom and pop shops across the country are losing their contracts with the Swoosh as Nike shifts their business strategy away from them and more towards DTC and larger retailers who can move more product.

It’s 2019…..2020. Whatever. And people are still falling for Instagram sneaker scams where they send their money to shady resellers without seeing the actual product.

VANS donates over $1 million to charities and other organizations who’s focus is promoting creativity within the arts.

EBay is looking to regain their hold on the sneaker resell market by eliminating seller fees on sneakers listed for $100 or more.

And finally, we look forward to our favorite upcoming sneaker releases for the first quarter of 2020.

In our final show of 2019, we make our picks for our second annual Sneaker Royal Rumble.

Dunks triggers Caesar by bringing up what has to be the stupidest Air Jordan release ever. The “laceless” Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince”.

Reebok decided to end the year on a high note, releasing probably their best sneaker of the year, the “Heart Over Hype” Reebok Question. This leads to a discussion of which shoes we’re looking forward to getting before the new year.

Jordan Brand has a habit of letting everyone get gassed up expecting a certain shoe to retro, knowing full well that they have no intentions of re-releasing said shoe. People saw that there was a “Red/White-Black” Air Jordan 1 coming out in early 2020 and automatically assumed they were going to be the “Chicago” 1s. Never assume anything with Jordan Brand.

Following in the footsteps of GOAT, StockX has partnered up with the Cleveland Cavaliers to create a unique experience for both NBA players and fans. And by “unique” we mean gratuitous logo placements throughout the arena and the visiting team’s locker room, and using the StockX app on what amounts to a standard size TV instead of the convenience of one’s cell phone.

Middle aged white people everywhere are PISSED about the upcoming jersey changes in the 2020 MLB season. They’re concerned that the Nike Swoosh, which will now be adorned on the front of every team’s jersey, will somehow ruin the sanctity of the game. While the league is aware of those concerns, they have over a billion reasons to not give a sh*t.

In what has to be one of the dumbest sneakers ever produced, PUMA has created a shoe specifically for video gamers. Puma says that their “active gaming footwear” offers support and grip to help overcome the many challenges that come with sitting down and playing video games, while also acknowledging that the shoes will probably offer nothing towards the improvement of performance of the video gamers who would wear them.

And finally, Caesar ends the show giving his two cents on the Nick Cannon X Eminem beef. We think we can all agree that we hope that it doesn’t extend into the new year.

What’s the point of doing a Fab 5 this week when all anyone talked about was the “Playoff”–or “Bred”–Air Jordan 11s?

Ray Polanco Jr. is being accused of allegedly abusing and exploiting his ex-girlfriend. While it seems that most people are waiting to see the story develop as the facts come out, there is a contingent of people who have made their minds up and have taken to social media to let their thoughts be known. Caesar makes the point that you should keep it to yourself if you can’t @ that person.

Dunks tries his hardest to get the record for the most bell rings. We might have to install a penalty box in the studio.

Geeno might be the most selfish co-host in the history of the show. Shout out to Taco Bell.

Dunks allegedly has a hidden culinary talent. But if his taste pallette is anything like his taste in sneakers, we’re not too optimistic.

Caesar rants on hypebeasts. Again.

Has Virgil Abloh officially phoned it in? Have you seen the Off-White X Air Jordan 5?!

Caesar looks forward to next year’s Sneaker Royal Rumble. Everyone on the show has to pick their top 5 shoes of the year. BUT, each shoe has to come from different brands.

Is StockX still being hacked?

Caesar rants on the lack of actual news coming from sneaker websites and news sites. It’s just release dates and celebrity sightings.

There’s fallout at Nike HQ following the aftermath of Alberto Salazar and the Nike Oregon Project controversy. A mini protest was held on campus by 400 employees. Somehow, out of all the things to be bothered by in this story, Caesar finds the tritest thing to take issue with. In addition to being tone deaf, Nike found a way to co-opt the protest. Oh, and there was a woman with a camoflouge beanie.

Under Armour is as bad at committing crimes as they are at selling sneakers.

Is anyone still excited about the upcoming Beyonce X Adidas collaboration?

And finally, in This Week In Stupid, a Nike Factory Store in California can’t go a day without getting robbed. In fact, there’s video of one of those robberies taking place, with a group of teens running out with arm loads of product. The kicker? That was the second robbery that day.

We’ve seen some ugly shoes in our day, but this shoe by Nike might just be one of the ugliest in our show’s history.

Caesar tells the story of how he might have been responsible for Dick’s Sporting Goods changing the name of their sneaker category from “The Score” to “The Win”.

Stadium Goods create a list of the most iconic sneakers of the last decade. And to be honest, we don’t disagree with their list all that much.

In another move that showcases their uncanny ability to always be original, Complex is looking to create their own sneaker marketplace. They’re currently in talks with other established, resell platforms and are looking to place this “new”, and “original”, idea of a sneaker marketplace underneath the Sole Collector brand.

The Brooklyn Nets have teamed up with the GOAT app to licence their players entrance into their arena. They’ll obviously find some way to create sneaker centered content out of this move. Trivial? Sure. But it’s a move nonetheless.

There’s a sneaker app called Poizon that, already in its first year, is generating 3 times the revenue that StockX brings in annually. $2.1 billion to be exact.

And finally, Caesar goes over a controversy brewing at Nike that might explain why Mark Parker stepped down as CEO. Women who were involved in Nike’s Oregon Project are said to have been subjected to mental and physical abuse while participating in the program. Coaches were obsessed with their body and weight, more specifically, their asses. No one seemed to be licensed to do the jobs they were given. One athlete considered suicide. While Nike’s response to all of this so far seems to be “how were WE supposed to know what was happening in OUR program that WE were funding”, the USADA is taking a look at the former head coach, while there are calls for an independent investigation into the now defunct program.

And finally, in a new segment called “Bot Topic”, we interview “Sean”, owner of “Loop Stars” and PR guy for “Project Destroyer”, to talk more in-depth about bots and how they operate within the world of buying and reselling sneakers. This leads to a healthy debate between the crew and their guest as to benefits, and unintended side effects, it has had on the sneaker community.

We briefly touch on how Ronnie Fieg got started.

We read some of our negative reviews on iTunes and “happily” accept the constructive feedback.

We look back on our show’s history, from road trips to opportunities to work with brands. It’s been a hell of a run.

In honor of the “Red Carpet” LeBron 17, we try to come up with a list of some of the best all red sneakers of all time.

The Pensole Academy has partnered up with Champs Sports to create a pipeline to a career in sneaker design for high school students.

People are to paying $400+ to pre-order the upcoming “Playoff” Air Jordan 11s. With 2.9 million pairs produced, why are people so willing to throw away their money?

Dunks wants more time on the show dedicated strictly to Yeezy talk. Nope.

Adidas is closing their factories in the U.S. and Germany. This comes after they claimed they were going to make more product in the U.S. a few years ago. The closures seem to be only impacting their Speedfactory facilities. That’s another Kanye promise he’s failed to deliver on.

And finally, Nike calls it quits with Amazon. The only reason the Swoosh partnered up with Jeff Bezos’ empire was because they thought they could control fakes, and third party resellers, on their platform. Now that they realize they can’t, Nike is leaving Amazon to focus more on selling DTC.

Let it be known that Geeno is habitually out of pocket. That’s it. There’s nothing else to add to that.

We try to cop the new Nike Kyrie 6 that shock dropped on the SNKRS app during the show. Geeno is able to score a pair, but accidentally chooses the wrong size.

Dunks doesn’t agree with this week’s Fab 5 Sneaker Releases from the Previous Week.

Chene tells a few embarrassing stories about Caesar.

We give our thoughts on this year’s Nike X Doernbecher Collection.

One of our listeners calls in via our voice mail to ask which Air Jordan 11 do we think will release during 2020’s holiday season.

Adidas is leaving earth. Apparently there are hypebeast in space. At at the International Space Station. The 3 Stripes will be doing some R & D, with their Boost tech in particular, making them the first footwear brand to product test off of the planet.

Nike creates a sneaker exclusively for nurses, doctors, and other medical workers. We wonder when resellers will catch wind of it, and how much they’ll try to flip them for?

Nike is catching heat for making their products too good. You heard that right. The IAAF specifically has a problem with Nike’s ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT, feeling as if it gives athletes too much of a competitive advantage against their predecessors and their records.

Reebok finally gets rid of their Delta logo. While the logo will still appear on their CrossFit and UFC products, the fact that undoing a bad decision is considered newsworthy for Reebok tells you all you need to know about the current state of the brand.

And finally, some guy allegedly had $30k worth of sneakers and apparel stolen from his car at a Sneaker Con event. A bit of advice, if you’re going to try to hide something valuable in the back seat of your car, without peaking people’s interest, do more than just cover said valuables with a sheet.

Caesar gets a pair of the “HoF” Air Jordan 2009 for a steal and looks to New White Ranger for validation. He doesn’t get it.

The crew notices that Dunks and Francis have never been seen in the same room at the same time. Coincidence?

Ro Spit, owner of Burn Rubber, addresses the controversy over their “Fearless” Air Jordan 1 release, where they allowed their customers to compete in “Fear Factor” inspired challenges to reserve their pairs.

Sarena shoots her shot. Any lucky gentleman looking to gain her favor, all it will take is a pair of Champion sneakers. Women’s size 9.

Big Baller Brand is now the Baller Financial Network, courtesy of former co-owner, and alleged embezzler, Alan Foster. This is the best reality show in sneakers right now.

The Flyease Air Jordan 1 was made for the handicapped and impaired, and apparently, resellers didn’t get the memo. Just when you thought you couldn’t hate them anymore they you do, they’re flipping shoes–some for as much as $10k–made specifically for people with disabilities. Stay classy.

Adidas is looking to dump John Wall and his contract. After aggressively pursuing him a few years ago, the 3 Stripes is now aggressively trying to divorce him. Should’ve had a pre-nup.

Skechers wins a battle, but will they win the war? The courts sided with Skechers, saying that they didn’t steal the midsole patent of the Converse Chuck Taylor. But Nike isn’t one to take a loss. Not only are they appealing that decision, they’re also refining their other lawsuit against Skechers involving their Vapormax and Air Max 270 technology. At this point, their lawyers must have a residency at their local courthouse.

Somehow, as we muddle through the particulars of Skechers v. Nike, we come across a guy who holds the record for lawsuits. He’s literally sued everyone and everything. Maybe we should lawyer up.

And finally, after recently removing Kevin Plank as their CEO, Under Armour is now under a federal investigation coming from both the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission over their revenue books from the last few years. If there was ever a time to attend an Under Armour party it would be now.

The “SBB 3.0” Air Jordan 1 finally dropped. Was the release what you expected?

Speaking of Jordan 1s, the WMNS “Fearless” Air Jordan 1 released. Does it seem that Jordan Brand half asses their women’s releases?

It’s a sneaker fire sale. Feels like damn near every brand is getting rid of their CEOs, or someone equally important. Mark Parker of Nike, Kevin Plank of Under Armour, and Eric Liedtke of Adidas. But while most of them are no longer holding the title of CEO, they’re still with their prospective brands, holding a different–more powerful–position within the company.

Guru unveils what could be the most ugliest sneaker we’ve ever seen in our show’s history.

Dunks is literally training for Complex Con: Long Beach. He wants to make sure he can outpace the other resellers who will descend upon the event.

Is it hard to market a football players sneaker? Will there be another Mike Vick?

Geeno loses a debate to Dunks. Geeno actually said that Victor Cruz’s Nike Trainers looked just like Kanye’s Nike Yeezys.

Can Under Armour ever compete with the likes of Adidas and Nike?

One day we’ll read one of the worse marketing rundowns sent to us in the past by Dick’s Sporting Goods. It was SO bad that we refused to read it at the time.

Dunks almost successfully turned Guru into a hypebeast live on the show.

And finally, each member of the crew tries to pick their top 5 sneaker silhouettes of all time, but they all find it difficult to narrow down. So they agreed to come back next episode with their top 15.

The crew dissect the upcoming Jordan Brand “Fearless” Pack.

The third installment in any franchise always disappoints. While we were all hoping for “John Wick 3” execution with the upcoming “SBB 3.0” Air Jordan 1, it seems that Jordan Brand has given us something more in line with “The Godfather III”.

The crew finds newfound hope in the sneaker community when Dunks informs them that resellers are staying away from Fkyease sneakers made for people with disabilities. Or maybe the bar is so low that this seems honorable for them.

Guru, Geeno, and Caesar get into a heated debate about LeBron’s comments on Rockets GM Darryl Morey tweet supporting protesters in China.

And finally, the crew makes the case that O.J. Simpson on Twitter might be the highlight of 2019.
