AJ6 "South Beach" Customs by El Cappy

Just hitting the internetz is the AJ6 "South Beach" customs designed by El Cappy. El Cappy made these customs for Detroit based blogger Juan the blogger where he transformed the AJ6 "Oreo" into this beautiful creation you see before you. Me being a non Lebron fan, his South Beach colorway was the best in my opinion. I have seen the South Beach colorway on other silhouettes but on this shoe is by far the best. Even the box is dope! Awesome work El Cappy!

Nike Air Max 1 Honeycomb/White-Blue Spark

Out now at Nike is the Air Max 1 Honeycomb/White-Blue spark. The honeycomb color is a nice touch from the normal bright colors that are used for spring and the blue bottom definitely pulls the look of the shoe together. These scream spring and for me to buy them! Available at 21 Mercer and your local retailer.

The White Pack

Next for release is the Nike Dunk Hi "White Pack". The shoe is made up of crackled leather with a glossy finish and lets not forget that icy sole. These are a little blah for me with the exception of that sole. Nothing makes me happier than icy or gum sole. If you are attending a white party in the Hamptons this would be the shoe to go with. But as for me I'll pass. Thoughts?

Email all stories with pics of the sneakers and receipts to You can see mine and many others come up stories at

This is just wrong: Supreme x Nike SB high X Air Force 1

Foreal Nike?!! This looks like a straight rip from the fake Nike sites you got shut down. When I saw these, I felt the chunks of my burrito bowl rise in my throat. I'm not for the inter sneaker mash ups. FAIL!

I don't know about you guys but I tired of this collab

Once again, Nike has decided to team of with Liberty Fabrics to release yet another tired collab. Never was a fan of the whole Liberty Fabrics collab and I never will be. Seriously, I don't want to walk around looking like I have Grandma's wallpaper on my feet. This is just tired and in the words of Dave Chappelle "Wrap that shit up b!" For those who are feeling these, they will drop May 1st.

Toronto Sneaker Expo: United We Sole

'Toronto Loves Kicks presents “United We Sole” which will be Toronto’s first ever buy/sell/trade Sneaker Expo of its kind. This event will feature over thirty vendors selling some of the most rare and exclusive sneakers and/or merchandise on the market. “United We Sole” will be set up to have a traditional trade show look and feel, and may include some additional merchandise, but the highlight and focus will be on sneakers.

Although sneakers are what this culture is passionate about, other things that will be highlighted will include: live music, artists showcasing their work/talent on site, live creation of sneakers being made on site and independent clothing lines which are some of the different avenues that the urban and sneaker culture draw into.'

If you live in Toronto and you love kicks, you do not want to miss out on this.  Hit up for info and table bookings.  For up-to-date info, be sure to check out the official website and Facebook page. Toronto fiends represent!

(My USA FSF Crew: you already know you've got a spot on my couch and a city tour guide if you want to come up for the event!)

You're in my Prayers Japan

As you know, Japan has been hit with a serious natural disasters today. Red Cross has been on call and is taking donations. If you wanna help please contact your local Red Cross chapters. Or Visit to donate. My heart goes out to our fellow Japanese fiends.

New collab: Concepts X New Balance 999 "The Kennedy"

Next to be released, is the Concepts X New Balance 999 called "The Kennedy". This sneaker is paying tribute to former U.S. President John F. Kennedy and his love for sailing. These are not my taste but these are decent. The colorway I must say is neutral, clean and "very summer". I will say this though Concepts always does good when they collab with sneaker brands so props to them! These are due to release April 2. **Update** The release date for these have been pushed back to April 16th!

Its been a hot min since I've done a throwback video post! I figured we all could use a good throwback in our lives.

AJ5 Wolf Grey

A while back I mentioned some AJ5 releases for this year and one of them was the "Wolf Grey" AJ5. Word on the internetz is that these bad boys are slated to release on May 14 but Marquee Sole has them for sale in Men sz 8-10 on their site. If you gals can fit those sizes and can't wait till May you can cop yours at Marquee. But I would think twice about the $250 price range if I were you!

New Pickup: MadeMe Vans

Finally after months of their release, I finally copped a pair of MadeMe Vans "Wellesley". I copped these off of Dogfunk for 59.00 bucks with free shipping. As I opened up the box I was greeted with a black tote bag with white crosses on them. Perfect for carrying them when you got to change out of your 9-5 shoes. The leather on these bad boys are pure butta and my favorite has to the be the all red sole bottom. I like these so much, I think I'm going to cop the MadeMe "Camyrn" next.
