“Sharpie it up”. 🖊Who knows the story on these? Nike once again found themselves surrounded by sneaker controversy in the 1997 NBA playoffs. The Air Foamposite One made its infamous debut on Mike Bibby’s feet during the 1997 NCAA tournament but technically weren’t seen on @iam1cent’s feet until a few weeks later. For a couple games toward the end of the regular season, Penny wore the neon royal Foamposite One in games against the Knicks and Bucks. In the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Miami Heat, Penny broke out the brightly colored blue sneaker again!. However, due to the NBA’s strict sneaker policy of confirming to uniform regulations, Penny was forced to add more black to the shoe. His solution? A sharpie. The shoe instantly became legend. That and the fact Penny went on an extraordinary scoring run. Fast forward to 2015, Nike releases a special commemorative Foamposite with the inside panels colored in to resemble the “sharpied” pair that Penny wore. The shoes released along with a brand new Air Penny 6.

The VC Shox Line seems to be a forgotten moment in Nike Signature shoe history. But in the early 2000’s, before Kobe wore Nike, before Lebron was a house hold name, Vince Carter was easily the face of the brand. Boing boing boing boing boing boing...#ogsupportgroup #niketalk #nike #nikebasketball #shox #nikeshox #boing #bb4 #vincecarter #vc #halfmanhalfamazing #sneakerhistory #igsneakercommunity #forcefieldfresh #sneakerfiles

Over the years I’ve accumulated a ton of Jordan shirts. And I’ve always been one to coordinate colors and match my kicks to my tees. I know it’s considered corny to match too much, so I always try and keep it simple. I’m not trying to look like the store mannequin every time I step out. I’m a T-shirt and jeans kinda guy. Always been. But one thing I’ve never been a huge fan of is shirts with pictures of shoes on them. I’ve had shirts in the past but they’re not usually my favorite. However this was an exception. It features one of my all time favorite shoes in a timeless print ad from the 1990’s. The infamous phone number ad. Plus for $19.99, I couldn’t pass up a deal. It also brings up a silly debate: Do you actually wear the same shoes as pictured and be “That guy”? I mean it’s sorta redundant. Or do you wear something totally different and be “THAT guy”? What’s your take on it?

“❌’s mark the spot!” Banned 1’s in more ways than one. We all know the legend of how the NBA banned the shoe for not conforming to uniform regulations but ironically these were also “banned” from a regular release. In 2011 these were sent to Nike outlets due to a date error on the inside of the shoe. Still caused quite a stir and many sneaker heads camping out for a pair. I particularly love this pair because not only do we get a specially marked heel, but it essentially began a run of OG highs making a return with premium leather.. #ogsupportgroup #niketalk #jordanbrand #jumpman23 #airjordan #nike #nikeair #airjordancollection #wearejordan #instyleshoes #solecollector #jordansdaily #jordandepot #nicekicks #kicksonfire #complexkicks #sneakernews #sneakerfiles #modernnotoriety #sneakerwatch #sneakerhistory #slamkicks #thedeadstox #nightwingknows #nikestories #kickstagram #featuremysneaks #snkrinc

Since it’s #wingslogowednesdays I figured why not post my collection shot of all my AJ1’s? This enough wings for ya?? If you’ve been following me for awhile you may have noticed me posting group shots of each numbered Jordan I own. From 31 down. I’ve posted all my Jordan’s with the exception of the 1’s...Until now. Here they are. All 80 pairs of mids and highs in my collection. I know some will hate and say I don’t have certain releases but in all honesty, I’m not the biggest fan of 1’s. I buy what I like. I mean I like the shoe (obviously) but I prefer other AJ models more. Of course I’d like a few more but that’s for another day. Anyways, enjoy the picture! #ogsupportgroup #niketalk #jordanbrand #jumpman23 #airjordan #nike #nikeair #airjordancollection #wearejordan #instyleshoes #solecollector #jordansdaily #jordandepot #nicekicks #kicksonfire #historyof1s #sneakernews #sneakerfiles #jordan1club #sneakerwatch #sneakerhistory #theunloved1s #thedeadstox #nightwingknows #nikestories #kickstagram #featuremysneaks #snkrinc #jordan1s

#flasbackfriday to a time before a fractured fibula ended my High School sports career. This pic was taken at my parents old house. Me and my friends would play hoop for hours until the sun went down. Almost everyday after school, on the weekends and whenever we had any amount of free time. Countless tournaments, one on one battles and dunk contests were held on that driveway. The angle of this pic made it looked like I had nice bounce. I didn’t. 😂 it’s still one of my favorite self pictures because I thought my pose was dope! 😂 In reality, it’s probably only a 9-foot rim. I never was able to dunk on a full 10-foot hoop, but pictures can make anything believable. Can anyone guess what’s on my feet? #ogsupportgroup #niketalk #jordanbrand #jumpman23 #airjordan #nike #nikeair #airjordancollection #wearejordan #instyleshoes #solecollector #jordansdaily #jordandepot #nicekicks #kicksonfire #complexkicks #sneakernews #sneakerfiles #modernnotoriety #sneakerwatch #sneakerhistory #slamkicks #thedeadstox #nightwingknows #nikestories #kickstagram #featuremysneaks #snkrinc #fbf
