The Sneaker Box – Episode 78 Ruohan Wang X Nike Flyleather Collection

In this episode of TSB, Caesar, Geeno, and Dunks are in-studio.  Geeno sells his soul to Dunks for a pair of Dunks. Caesar gives his overall thoughts on the current state of sneaker collaborations.  Try as we might, Kanye is the topic of discussion once again on our show. What line does he have to cross to turn people off? Looking back, what was the point of the Travis Scott X McDonald’s collaboration? Even better question, does McDonald’s have the best fast food? People are spending THOUSANDS of dollars on bots. Has the game changed to the point of no return? Will the inability to buy sneakers at retail force people out of sneakers? We look forward to some upcoming releases like the Nike “Gamer” Collection.  We discuss the atrocity that is the Beyonce X Adidas Superstar Platform.  More and more people are “bespoking” their own Air Jordan 1s, and other sneakers. Where’s the line between that and fakes? Some positive news from Baltimore. Under Armour has gained some ground amongst women, going as far as releasing their first women’s basketball sneaker.  We list our top 5 Foamposites. By the way, Nike Basketball still owes the entire world an apology for the quality of both the “Mirror” and “Blue Mirror” Foams. So apparently StockX managed to sneak in language that took away users ability to sue them in their “terms and conditions” during one of their app updates.  And finally, in honor of the L.A. Clippers epic choke against the Denver Nuggets, Caesar attempts to call stores in Los Angeles looking for the Kawhi Leonard X New Balance Kawhi “Heimlich Manuever”.
