I would say the sneaker game is more about money rather than the passion of just liking shoes and fly kicks. I find few people that buy shoes that they like. Most of the sneaker heads that collect now days just buy whatever is hot, as you can see in some of the resell prices. A prime example of the hype movement would be the Kanye West Powerphase. Pretty much an Adidas version of the reebok classic club c 85. The resell on the shoe is now as high as $1200 just because it’s a Kanye West shoe. Adidas is the new king of shoes and caters to the resell market with simple releases such as the NMD and Ultra Boost selling out almost every release meanwhile Jordan brand shoes are sitting more and more. The designer shoe gives you a bold tasteful look that you can wear with almost anything, for example the Balenciaga arena. Although the designer or more expensive pieces aren’t for everyone they are good to have in the collection if you have the money.
What’s up family! Today I am doing my first ever story on Nike Basketball. We have the Flip the Switch Collection which celebrates Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Paul George’s surge to the NBA Championship. The collection includes the LeBron 14, the PG1, Kyrie 3, KD 9 ELITE, and the Kobe AD. Each shoe in this collection is in electric colorways representing each player’s electric energy on the way to capture a ring; even though Kobe has retired the collection still includes the Kobe AD. The price tag for these shoes is $175 for the LeBron 14, $150 for the KD 9 Elite, $120 for the Kyrie 3, $110 for the PG,1 and $160 for the Kobe AD. The collection releases this Friday May 5th and you can pretty much pick these up at all Nike retailers. I will share that my favorite in this pack is the PG 1.
