Reebok vs. LA Gear

October 18, 2009

pUmpsOk, first off… I would like someone to impale me with a broomstick. These are special. It’s kinda safe to say everybody remembers Reebok Pumps from back in the day, let alone all the recent re-releaseses. But what better opportunity than this to get nostalgic over some other short lived sneaks that are really only remembered by few….

LA Gear Regulators

The Regulator: The inflatable shoe craze of the early 1990s spawned this shoe, L.A. Gear’s answer to the Reebok Pump. The shoe featured a large pumping button on the tongue (much larger than the Reebok Pump’s was) and a switch on top that deflated the shoe when pushed to the right.

There is probably only a handful of people who can recall these. The pump on these shizens were like twice the size. But if you really want to go overboard….

Not only did they help me dunk on fools, but they got me through college.

Welcome to Douchecrest City

October 10, 2009

MS-Sneaker $450. Yeah, hardcore. I’ll tell you what I’d pay for these, (assuming I wanted an entire bucket of haterade dumped on me the second I stepped out in public) uhhh $135? Still, I would never rock them because deep down inside, I’m a scared, defeated man. I welcome you to Douchecrest City.

Reebok got down with B.o.B. to do an exclusive remix of an 80’s or 90’s song for the release of the Classic Leather Wet shoes from the Remix Collection coming out this Thursday, May 21st.

I have no clue what the song is gonna be, but you have to buy a pair of shoes to find out. 

Get it done.

The Johnson Mids- Black Leather.

Ok, I’m breaking some rules, but I’m improving my dancing skills, so it’s all good.

The Hundreds just released their new Spring ’09 Shoe Collection, and I must say, these look pretty snazzy to me. 

Simple, classy, and great for stomping out oversized white T’s.

Chucks: Pink Floyd Edition

March 8, 2009

pink-floyd-converse-rLook out LaRoushe, we gotta theme running. Pink Floyd’s iconic “The Dark Side of the Moon” album cover has now been plastered on the side of Converse’s legendary Chuck Taylors.

Along with this makeup, Converse has worked up a Chuck Taylor low and Jack Purcell from “The Dark Side of the Moon” alongside an “Animals” and “Wish You Were Here” Chuck Taylor High. Stay tuned for a further look into the entire collection.

Nice colorway, but even better album.

So, Supra Nike Made Some Ill Sh*t

March 5, 2009

nike-rt1-high-blackReaching out for inspiration it seems. The Nike RT1 Highs are oddly similar to shoes Supra has released, still sexy in it’s own right. Well, the way I see it… it’s like people hating on Kobe because he’s too much like Jordan. If the shoe fits, fuck wear it. Look for these in April. 95 bucks. Btw, I’m feeling these.

Don’t Wear These

February 16, 2009

adidas-ts-bounce-commander-supermanAdidas designed these atrocious “Superman” sneakers for Dwight Howard. Unfortunately, this year, actually having the proper shoes to go with his superhero shtick resulted in a loss to 5’9” Nate Robinson who actually just decided to jump over his ass to win. Tearfaces galore.
