Sneaker Sunday: Nike SB Dunk High “Send Help II”

Definitely one of the more unique shoes I own.  They feature a navy blue suede and white leather upper with purple elephant print on the heel.  It also has "SEND HELP" embroidered on the heel and tongue tag.  The sole is lime green and I bought the lime green laces to match the sole.  Originally, … Continue reading Sneaker Sunday: Nike SB Dunk High “Send Help II”

Sneaker Sunday: Nike Kobe XI Elite Low “Brave Blue”

For years, I stayed away from anything pertaining to the Kobe brand (as any respectable Celtic fan would do).  Secretly though, I was envious.  I had always wanted to play in a low top basketball shoe.  When Kobe started rocking lows in 2008 with the Kobe IV's, he was the first and only one doing.  … Continue reading Sneaker Sunday: Nike Kobe XI Elite Low “Brave Blue”

Sneaker Sunday: Adidas x Reining Champ UltraBOOST all terrain shoe

Typically, I’m #nikegang all day long but sometimes you gotta try something different.  I’d been looking for hiking shoes for awhile that wouldn’t hurt my achilles tendon.  It seemed that any time I was on a hike, the pain from my achilles would crop up way too often and I needed to find a solution.   I … Continue reading Sneaker Sunday: Adidas x Reining Champ UltraBOOST all terrain shoe

Sneaker Sunday: Nike ‘Hemp’ P-Rod II

Throughout my childhood I was a kid stuck between two worlds.  On one hand, I lived in the gym.  I had basketball tournaments every weekend, basketball practice everyday after school and basketball shoes littered the floor of my room on a daily basis.  On the other hand, when I wasn't playing basketball, I was skating.  … Continue reading Sneaker Sunday: Nike ‘Hemp’ P-Rod II
