Happy Halloween!

Here's my Mars Blackmon impression:  "Money, it's gotta be the shoes!" 

 What did y'all dress up as this weekend?

Get into the Cipher

Cipher is a international lifestyle sneaker brand based out of Hong Kong that "offers high concept lifestyle products for an emerging class of global lifestyle connoisseurs". Cipher's style is more on the luxury side but different. Personally I like some of Cipher's sneakers, they're very simple and versatile. Unfortunately, Cipher smallest size is a UK mens 7 which is a 9 US women. I have been told by Henry Temple of Cipher that they are working on smaller sizes. So there is hope for us ladies lol Check it out...

Sneaker Pimps hits DC!

Turning the big 24!

I'm celebrating my 24th B-day this Friday at Sway Lounge with the ILL banger crew! Host for the evening is FSF's own Pink Eye. Come down and percolate with me! All female sneaker fiends welcomed! :)

Bo Jackson Trainer "All for One" Event

The signage explaining the purpose of the event. Who does Fee talk to about getting some of the "used" signage et al from these events?
The designer (holding the All for One edition Bo Trainer), Bo Jackson "Mr. 2 Sport", and Gus Johnson take center stage to talk about Bo, the shoes, and those ad campaigns...Bo Knows!
This IS a sneaker blog so the obligatory sneaker shot. Bo wore dress shoes tho = (
The Cristiano Ronaldo All for One Trainer special edition box. Each raffle winner got a 1of 2 shoe, the artwork, and this custom box for $350.
The next generation of multi-sport athletes sit and soak in the wisdom of Bo Jackson. These young men play football for the Pitbulls in NYC.

Hello Kitty X Reebok PT-20 Plush @ ATMOS Japan

Alot of ladies love Hello Kitty but I'm not sure if we love it this much! I'm not sure if they were trying to follow the "fur" trend going on this year with kicks, but I am not approving! Resembling a stuffed animal and placing an outrageously big bow on the side of the sneaker is such an insult to me as a female! I do not want these on my feet! DO YOU? Fortunately these are only at ATMOS Japan for word on a US release.

RECAP! Jordan X Sole Collector CMFT 11 SC Premier

Yesterday was the event and initially I wasn't going to go because you had to come at 7AM to pick up your lanyard & raffle ticket in order to get in the store. After thinking it over I showed up in the early AM to a line of about 100 other fiends ready to fork it up for these limited exclusives! When I returned at 8pm there seemed to be even more fiends in the mall with shoppers passing by us asking what was going on.

The Nike store in Roosevelt Field Mall has only been open for about 2-3 months so I now understand why they chose this location for this release. It's a huge store with Nike ID stations, plenty of kicks for both men & women. They also had a hardcover or softcover SOLE COLLECTOR issue for this sneaker as well as the entire Jordan collection inside! I bought the hardcover to pass down for generations to come! Our special guest was rapper Jadakiss from The LOX/D-Block who also has a love for Jordans and he raffled the 1st ticket for a custom carbon fiber Jordan box! When we came in the morning, we had to place one of our raffle tickets into a box wherever your size was. I already knew I was not coming home without a pair! Luckily there were 18 pairs available in my size, and I was the 6th raffle called out.

The sneaker itself is very nice! Clean, simple hybrid of an 11 & AM90, yet complex with the carbon fiber weave along the upper instead of the usual patent leather seen on the 11. The back heel panel is a soft grey nubuck with 23 lasered in. The midsole has "Jordan" stamped into it, and the outsole is "Icey white" and textured like pebbles. Overall it is a great sneaker and I am glad that I took that chance and went out there!

Children's book series! Complaining Chris & Sensible Shaun - FLY TOPS SNEAKERS

If you have a love of sneakers and can remember to when you first fell in love with them, or wanted them to compete with other kids fresh to def in theirs, then you can definitely appreciate this children's book from my family friend Clarise Bradley! Targeted for young readers ages 7-11, the series teaches kids not to take things for granted in their lives. In FLY TOPS SNEAKERS, Chris & Shaun learn an important lesson about challenges faced while raising a family, including sacrifices that have to be made in order for the overall needs of the entire family to be met. In this book they learn that many times, what they want isn't necessarily what they need. Definitely a good read for any kid who loves sneakers! You can purchase a copy HERE
