A few weeks ago, Reebok and Swizz Beats revealed the new Kamikaze’s with a limited edition drop. Don’t worry, if you weren’t one of the lucky few (84 to be exact) to catch the limited edition joints, you can cop the new colorways this Friday. Read More »
Hectic was the only word that could crack the too cool for school (or at least three more years of it), demeanor on John Wall’s face and sum up the last two years of his life. Going from a buried in the tar heel state prep star, to a top HS recruit who led the resurgence of a college hoops haven, a media sensation and a soon to be overall no. 1 pick in tomorrow’s NBA Draft, hectic might be the only way to describe a two-year span like that.

RBK ZIG TECH TRAINER SNEAKER: THE TEST RUN Apparel, Reebok, Sneakers, The Latest, feature / Apr 24, 2010 / 10:37 pm
Unless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock, I’m sure you’ve seen the Reebok commercials on T.V. for the new cross training kicks featuring Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson or Sidney “Sid the Kid” Crosby. The backdrop is blacked out and a red line takes you for a visual loop through different training situations and abruptly ends as one of the athletes says “the energy drink for your feet.” The ad’s about as eye-catching as the bugged out infomercial guy selling Slap Chop’s and ShamWow’s, leaving us intrigued about what the heck we just saw, to say the least.

PICK YOUR POISON: JORDAN XII OR REEBOK QUESTION? Apparel, Articles, Clothing, Jordan, Jordan Brand, Nike, Reebok, Sneakers, The Latest, feature / Dec 15, 2009 / 5:27 am
December is the month that many sneakerheads adore. It means one thing: coveted Retro sneaker releases. It happens every time, Jordan Brand and others re-release classics so that Santa can make many ball players and sneaker aficionados happy. I personally love the idea of Retros; I can save my OG’s and not worry about air bubbles busting, leather peeling, or viewing yellowed soles with sloppy glue marks from prehistoric sneaker technology. With all the new releases in 2009, a quarter of the NBA and professional players still wears Retros, showcasing their popularity on and off the court.
On December 19th, Jordan Brand is re-releasing the Jordan XII in the white/varsity red colorway. Reebok this month also re-released The Question in its original white/red colorway. Anybody remember? I’ll give you a hint: Lower East Scribe posted a picture of this epic match-up a few days ago. Ah yes, these two sneakers highlight one of the most pivotal match-ups between Jordan and the young whippersnapper A.I. The question I ask today is simple: What would you buy?

ALLEN IVERSON: LOVE HIM OR LEAVE HIM ALONE Apparel, Articles, Clothing, Reebok, Sneakers, The Latest, feature, legends, nba / Dec 7, 2009 / 7:46 pm
It’s personally fitting to me that Allen Iverson’s first shoe is called the Question, because ever since he’s been in the league I’ve had to ask myself one: do I love him or do I hate him?
Last week, I was walking to the train, knocking Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Mobb on my iPod and asking myself what makes me love A.I.? Before I could finish my thoughts, Weezy’s lyrics gave me the answer I was searching for.
“Hold court with the apes/I’m a gorilla but lighter/got the, eye of the tiger/the heart of a fighter…” Read More »
THE INFAMOUS EASTBAY CATALOG AND 1, AND1, Adidas, Apparel, Articles, Asics, Converse, Jordan Brand, News, Reebok, Sneakers, The Latest / Dec 6, 2009 / 11:50 pm
Before the time of high-speed Internet and online shopping, sneakerheads and basketball connoisseurs had to wait monthly for the new Eastbay in order to buy sneakers. I was “The Man” when I brought the new Eastbay to school. People who did not acknowledge my existence suddenly asked to see the catalog with me. A huddle of teenagers would surround me while I was flipping through the pages. People would point at the shoes they wanted to ball in or wear out on the weekend. The people who initially ignored me soon gave me attention because a like interest was discovered. It’s funny because I only got a few catalogs before they cancelled my subscription; one had to be a customer to get it every month. My funds at the time were low so I could not get the catalog sent to my house for long. Other people would give me their catalogs and I would just look at them thinking one day I would get those Eggplant Flightposites. I remember teens cutting out the shoes they wanted from the catalog and taping them inside their locker. One guy I knew adorned the inside of his locker with old Christmas Eastbay catalogs for the holiday season. Those were the days.
Once upon a time, Allen Iverson held the hearts of basketball enthusiasts from his home turf in Virginia to the blacktops of Philly. You could cop a pair his signature shoe, The Question, from Reebok, anywhere. As AI made his retirement official on Nov. 25, we look back on his career.
DJ Shadow x Reebok: “What Does Your Sole Look Like?” Reebok, Sneakers / Jan 15, 2009 / 9:00 am
DJ Shadow recently partnered up with Shoe Biz and Reebok create a limited version of the brand’s classic Ventilator jogger. The model is colored up in white/dark grey/black color scheme that for lack of better word is reminiscent of something shadowy. The shoe is accented by a mesh toebox, translucent outsole, and a “What Does Your Soul Look Like?” logo that rises vertically on the runner’s posterior. The Vent is accompanied by Shadow’s “Quannum Stone Cold Winter” disc. To learn more, please visit here.
