To those that have supported me over the years, I can't possibly thank you enough. I am forever gratefuI to be able make a living doing things that I love. I can't even count the number of people that have reached out lately to offer support, wisdom, and so much more. As you might have heard me say before, I measure success by the number of doors I'm able to open for other people. This next part of my life's work and purpose will be about creating a business that creates opportunities for others, and connects people, on a level that I've never reached before. It's going to be challenging, exciting, scary and the most rewarding work I've done. I hope you'll follow along, or better yet, get involved. You know how to reach me.

That said, one of the projects I'm finally getting back to focusing on is @sneakerhistory. To celebrate, I've partnered with two awesome companies (specifically the people behind the brands), @theshrine.co and @forcefieldfresh, to give away a pair of Levi's Jordan 4s, a Shrine Weekender Backpack, ForceField Premium Shoe Care Kit and Sneaker History Champion t-shirt and stickers. Head to the @sneakerhistory page for details on how to enter. -
Help me spread the word and tag a couple of friends below that would like to win this package too! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

The reflective on the 5th Anniversary Ultra Boost is 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
.
I know a lot of people that follow me aren’t as into sneakers as others but the adidas Ultra Boost is still the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn. It’s worth the “investment” for people that don’t usually spend a lot on sneakers. Especially as a lot of colorways go on sale now. 👍🏼

Feeling a bit nostalgic this morning...
4 years ago at All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, @mrbrando3 @kustoo @yoanty @jram_91 @tylerjblake @nightwing2303 @bballbreakdown with @scknows behind the 📸.
We built a basketball court in the mall and let kids shoot 3-pointers against @stephencurry30 before his first All-Star appearance and streamed it on a live Google Hangout.
It was honestly one of the most stressful, exhausting and rewarding days in my career. None of us knew how or if it would work at the time but with the help of all the above mentioned people, more than a few runs to Radio Shack and the @finishline and @uabasketball teams, it was a success and we all walked away feeling like Stephen Curry in this picture. #tbt
Link in bio if you want to see how far we’ve all come lol.

4 years ago today on a Sunday while everyone was at church, Red Octobers dropped without any notice. To me it’s probably one of the coolest things to happen, because it was unannounced. Sometimes I feel like a lot of the fun is lost when everyone knows when a release is going to happen. What do you think?

Like half of my Instagram and Twitter feeds today, I had no choice but to lace up the Air Jordan 3.
.
30 years ago today, Michael Jordan won the Slam Dunk Contest with a “Free Throw Line” dunk that was unlike anything I’d ever seen before.
.
I’d seen Dr. J do it but MJ made it look like he was actually flying. I remember watching in awe. It was that point that I wanted to be like Mike. It made him a superhero. It made me want to fly. It made me want his Nikes. It made me want to drink Gatorade. Thankfully, I’d already had a similar tongue habit when I’m concentrating 👅 so I was essentially half way to stardom.
.
It was really this day that changed the trajectory of my life. I began drawing sneakers with my brother. I began collecting Eastbay catalogs dreaming of owning a pair of Jordans. I got my first pair 7 years later and it’s turned into a career that’s taken me all over the United States and given me countless opportunities to meet incredible people.
.
I’ve never met MJ but if I get the chance, I just want to thank him for doing the unbelievable and making it look easy and inspiring kids like me to push beyond what they were destined for to become something greater.

It’s safe to say I would have never been given the opportunities I’ve had to work in the sneaker world if it wasn’t for the Sole Collector/ISS Forums. Today was the last day for the forums, although they’ve been far from what they were for years, it’s sad to see them officially shut down. I met so many amazing people through the forums, it’s impossible to even list all the names and memories that are running through my mind right now. I got my job as a writer for Sole Collector through the forums, met amazing people and had incredible experiences thanks to the community, and yes it was absolutely a community back then, despite what some people will tell you. The forums were everything that’s missing in sneakers today, good people sharing a passion for the betterment and friendly competition of everyone.
.
I’m wearing these with pride today like @mjo23dan and probably a handful of others. We made these Hyperdunks in 2010 to celebrate 10 years and reaching 200k users on the site. They were mostly for Admins and Moderators, because in the end, it’s all of them who kept the community connected. 🙏🏼
.
As they say, change brings opportunity, let’s hope I see all the familiar faces and screen names in the next chapter ✌🏼 I can’t possibly tag everyone so tag some friends from the forums for me.
.
If you were on the forums leave a comment below with your username and a memory you have from back in the day.

This was always one of my favorites. It’s so nice to see the “Feet You Wear” icon return on the new “Boost You Wear” design (Thank you, adidas team!). There’s a lot of nostalgia tied up in that goofy little guy. Hopefully I can grab a pair of the new ones! #feetyouwear #boostyouwear #smys

Album of the Year.

“Wouldn’t it be hilarious if he farted on you right now?” And then there was 💨💩

Look at that mischievous look. It’s like she knows as soon as Uncle Nick is around, it’s time for trouble.

Sneakers have taken me a lot of places in the world, both literally and figuratively. Most importantly, they’ve introduced me to amazing friends and allowed me to create opportunities for others. It’s been way too long since I had some time with the ocean but it’s one of the only things in life that slows down my mind. It gives me a chance to be grateful, find clarity and reenergize. It’s consistently inconsistent. Always. And now I’m officially ready for new challenges and opportunities. Let’s get it!
