The Sneaker Box – Episode 43 The “White/Black-Gold” Adidas NMD R1

In this episode of TSB, Caesar, Geeno, Guru, MJ, and newcomer, Dunks, are in-studio.

Of course the show begins with the controversy surrounding the release of the WOMEN’S “Black Toe” Satin Air Jordan 1. The controversy being that a bunch of disgruntled, small-footed men couldn’t get their hands on a women’s shoe.

The crew begs the question, “Who else is tired of Air Jordan 1s?” And, “What are some of the more underrated brands and sneakers?”

Nike hopes to gain lifelong customers by getting them while they’re young. The Swoosh created the “Adventure Club” to help remove some of the burden parents have in purchasing shoes for their kids. Seems like Nike is forgetting the main ingredient that produces such brand loyalty. Nostalgia.

Under Armour just can’t get right. You can tell that they want to, but they just can’t figure out a way to make a product that appeals to the masses. While their products may underwhelm, it’s been said that they can throw a bomb ass company party.

Pyer Moss designer and founder, Kerby Jean-Raymond, has been named as the artistic director of a new division at Reebok called “Reebok Studios”. All things considered, seems like it would be like getting hired as a VJ at MTV.

And finally, in his continued effort to show the world that he’s one of America’s biggest regrets, Donald Trump’s tariff war with China is going to start hitting your pockets sooner than you think. Like “next month” soon. Hope everyone enjoys paying resell prices at retail.
