The Sneaker Box – Episode 76 Air Jordan Retro 7 “China”

In this episode, Caesar, Guru, Geeno, and Dunks are in-studio. We begin the show by interviewing the founders of SNEAKQL, Andrew Lipp and Patrick Donelan. SNEAKQL is trying to change the game by mitigating the impact of bots and making raffles and releases fairer, and more obtainable, for the average sneakerhead. Wex-Dawg, aka Jon Wexler, is leaving Adidas for Shopify. We discuss the impact it’ll have on both brands. Why is there a Travis Scott X McDonald’s collab? Yeezy jumped over the Jumpman……… only to come back wanting to rock the Jumpman? The 3 Stripes can’t be happy right now. We discuss how Adidas handle Kanye going forward. We’re still trying to figure out what was Jordan Brand thinking with the “Banned” Nike Airship release. Mayor sold his collection. At least the pairs he couldn’t fit anymore. Someone on the show has a problem with it. We won’t say who it is, but we will say that it wasn’t Caesar, Guru, Jumpman, or Geeno. Saucony is releasing their version of Nike’s “Doernbecher” Collection. They’ve teamed up with the Boston Children’s Hospital to release a collection of sneakers designed by children. Same concept, but will it have the same results? LaMelo Ball is signing with PUMA. Stay tuned as that story develops. Steph Curry is going to have his own brand under the Under Armour umbrella, similar to Jordan Brand’s relationship with Nike. But will it make a positive difference for the brand in Baltimore. Nike is coming out with a maternity line for new moms and moms-to-be. They’ve only been in business for like 50 years, but it’s better late than never. And finally, an Adidas exec was given his walking papers after he called the 17 older shooter in Kenosha, Wisconsin a “victim”.
