Original specs for the PUMP
One of the many displays
FSF'er Samiya was decked out
Emmit Snith, Paul Litchfield, & Dominque Wilkins

I was invited to come out & celebrate the occasion at POP BURGER, and what a party it was!! If you didn't know about POP BURGER already and were passing by, you would have thought it was a REEBOK PUMP store or club! There were PUMP's from the front to the back of the establishment in all flavors and years!!! Special guests were the inventor of the PUMP, Paul Litchfield, NFL superstar Emmit Smith, & NBA all-star Dominique Wilkins! Alot of guest came decked out in a pair of PUMP's, and there was even a documentary playing in the back all about how the PUMP came to life and how it changed sneaker culture! As a special thanks for coming out to celebrate, giftbags had a flash drive with the entire PUMP archive!!! SWEEET!!! Check out some more pics and go find yourself a historic pair for the collection!

Is Deadstock Dead?

The good folks over at Nice Kicks ask the hard questions and tell us some reasons why prices are falling for deadstock. But will it keep the sneakerheads from putting our newest faves on ice? Weigh in yourself at Nice Kicks!


These are 2 amazing sneakers designed by 2 amazing kids battling disease at The Doernbecher Children’s Hospital! Makayla Hansen designed these bright & colorful Skinny Dunk Hi's in a basketball theme using blue instead of the usual orange skin. Makayla has been diagnosed with Alagille syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the liver, heart & other systems of the body which is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern.

Bradley Bowlby just recently recovered from his fourth open-heart surgery for his Congenital Heart Defect. His design on these AF1's is inspired from him being a self-proclaimed "mud lover chef"! With a nubuck "mud" colorway on the toebox, lacing, & frontal upper, and pics of his other favorite subjects like dogs & bmx bikes patterned along the rest of the shoes you get a camouflage feel.

Both pairs are a definate collectible for a worthy cause! Available at NIKETOWN & THE NIKE STORE, proceeds from each sale will go towards the Doernbecher Foundation to help other children at the hospital.

New Balance and Concepts celebrate Boston's Freedom Trail

Just wanted to remind folks traveling to New England for Turkey Day that they need to stop by Concepts on Black Friday! And go early! That's when the NB for Concepts Freedom Trail package drops. Since New Balance and Concepts are both based in the greater Boston area, they decided to celebrate the heritage of the city, using the red of the Freedom Trail (it marks the walking history trail for visitors) and the brown of the brick of Boston's historic North End neighborhood.

They are rolling out a beaut of a 1500 runner, and a brand new hiker called the 875, both with gobs of high quality materials and luxury touches. The 1500 is a runner first out in 1989, and this version features a combination of perforated and solid suede with burnished leather. The 875 features the same combination of leathers with unique venting tick marks on the collar of each boot for maximum breathability. As Concepts brand manager Frank Rivera adds, “We selected rich brown honeybuck suedes and slick leathers that are so soft, if you push your finger into the leather, you will leave a thumbprint.” Sweet! The 1500 is going for $150, and the hiker is going for $160. Smallest size is probably (hopefully) a 7, possibly larger. They will also be available at select retailers worldwide.

Women Empowering Women Summit wrap up!

R&B artist Melanie Fiona and I
celebrity make up artist Raedawn J

The fabulous Wendy Williams

Hey ladies! The summit was a few hours of networking, and sharing positive methods to help inspire each other to allow our voices to be heard, and that our thoughts and ideas are indeed valid! It was moved at the last minute to the Holiday Inn next door and streamed live for those who couldn't attend. I missed Elisabeth Hasselbeck's video acceptance for her honoree award, but was there to see Wendy Williams accept, share her experience working with women in a male dominated field, and give advice on sisterhood and why it is important that we as women help each other get ahead! There was also a special guest, new R&B artist Melanie Fiona, and celebrity make up artist Raedawn J who says a little make up goes a long way! There were group exercises to make positive presentations to help inspire you in whatever it is that you have passion for as well as Q & A with the panelists from Hip Hop for Life, Daniel's Music school, and Junior Achievement Academy NY! This event was great and I was glad to be invited to cover it for the blog! Thank you Heather Young and WEW founder Kisha Mays!!!

Lady Footlocker & Nike hook up the hoopsters!

Lady Footlocker has kept their mission of providing quality, performance footwear for women, and they're expanding beyond their strong niche in running shoes with a huge online selection of women's basketball sneakers. This is big! I used to go to every sneaker store in the mall and ask for women's basketball sneakers, not so much because I wanted them (the men's were always better), but just to keep the word alive that yes, females play basketball! And buy sneakers! So now here we have it, online and in the mall, the recognition that hundreds of thousands of girls and women of all ages are balling. Nike has heard. Lady Footlocker has heard, and they're stepping up with over 70 varieties of Nike Hyperize, Shox Vision, Lebron Soldier IIIs and more. Don't sleep on the ladies!
(Sorry adidas and Reebok, you slept! Or you better take it up with LFL, cuz offering 3 colorways of one shoe? And it only comes in 1 size?? What is that?)
