Tips And Tricks For Getting Sneakers Online

Online releases. They’re a major part of today’s sneaker game. Every shoe you want isn’t going to be available locally, so you’re forced to go to the internet (sometimes early in the morning on a weekend..which is awful) to get the shoes you want.

This means that you’ll be competing with people across the country and the world who want the same kicks that you do, so you need to be quick to get what you want. Thankfully there’s a few easy hacks I’ve learned to make this process simpler that I’d be glad to pass along to you. Here’s a few tips and tricks for getting sneakers online. read more

Thoughts On The Yeezy 350 Boost

It’s seemingly the only shoe that’s been discussed these last few weeks. It’s being discussed in Facebook sneaker groups, barbershops, and boutiques all over the world. It’s the Yeezy 350 Boost, the most anticipated shoe of the last few months by a long shot.

Opinions vary from extremely positive to exceptionally negative. The shoe’s supporters will say that it’s a great representation of what Kanye is trying to achieve with his new Adidas line (while also incorporating Adidas’s newest and best technology), while its detractors will say that it looks like a Roshe Run knockoff, and is just flat-out ugly. read more

Sneaker Reselling: When Will The Bubble Burst?

Resellers.

They’re a part of the game whether you like it or not. Some use the money they make selling hyped sneakers to enhance their own personal collection, some use it as as their full-time income, and some are just novices hoping to make a quick buck on whatever semi-rare sneaker that they just managed to get their hands on.

But recently the game has been changing. Sure, there are still sneakers that will resell for a four-figure sum…but the buyers don’t seem to be turning out in high numbers. Why is this, you might ask? It might just be because the sneaker reselling bubble is beginning to burst. read more

What I’ve Been Doing Recently Part IV

What’s good, everyone?

It’s been a little over a month since my last check-in, so I figured today was as good of a day as any to update all of you on what I’ve been doing recently.

Everything’s still moving along at KLX. I’m still blessing their pages with dope work, and I’ve wrote about everything from bomber jackets to summer style trends. If you’re so inclined, here’s a list of all the articles I’ve wrote in the last month.

I’m Writing This On My Phone

What’s good everyone?

Yes, you read the title right. I’m writing this article on my phone. I’ve spent the better part of the last two hours trying to get my MacBook to connect to the Internet with no success at all. Comcast is the worst, aren’t they?

I was planning on uploading some new photos, but with my computer refusing to connect to the web, I’ve got no way to do it.

Needless to say, I’m very annoyed. I’ve had a new post up here at 8 AM every single day for over a year now, and I refuse to let that streak end (which is why I’m typing this on my phone). read more

A Quick Guide To Trading Kicks

Maybe you have a pair of sneakers you’re not enamored with anymore. Maybe a new pair you want is dropping and you don’t have the cash to go get it. Maybe you really want something that’s been sold out for a long time. Maybe you just want to switch things up a bit.

What do those four things have in common? They’re all a good time to look at trading some of your kicks. Trading can be a nice alternative to buying and selling, as there’s usually no money involved, and both parties come out of the deal with something that they wanted. read more

Brad Hall Is Back With Another Classic

There’s a good chance you’ve heard of Brad Hall…and if you haven’t, get ready to laugh.

Hall (if that’s even his real name) makes hilarious “sneaker review” videos on YouTube, poking fun at everything from sneaker unboxings to the way sneakerheads walk, and his latest video just might be his best.

Hall reviews the “Hare” Jordan VII’s, and well…you should just see for yourself.

If you enjoyed that as much as we did, you can check out the rest of Hall’s videos right here. read more

The Joy Of Helping Your Friends Get Sneakers

Your homies. Your crew. The squad. The team. Gang gang gang. Whatever term you use to describe them, I’m talking about your friends.

If you’re lucky enough to have a close-knit group of friends, there’s a good chance that you’re probably into at least a few of the same things, and if you’re reading this article there’s a pretty good chance that you (and by association your friends) are into sneakers. So what am I getting at here, you ask? I’m here to tell you about the joy of helping your friends get sneakers. Sure, you want to get whatever new release you have your eyes on, but if one of the homies wants it too, throw them an oop every once in a while. read more

Don’t Finesse The Sneaker Plug

Finessing the plug. A topic as old as time itself. Maybe you’ve got a way with words, or maybe you’re just a sneaky bastard. Whatever it may be, you’ve likely finessed the plug at least once or twice in your life.

While finessing the plug is somewhat normal when you’re in the market for a quarter or a half, it’s not something that you should be doing when you’re in the market for the newest Jordan I or whatever Adidas Kanye had on his feet last week (oh you hypebeast, you). read more
