We begin with Dunks plugging his book–yes, he really wrote a book–titled “Cashew Gets A Job”.

True or false–(invoking Jay-Z)–Nike made the Air More Uptempo a hot line but Supreme made them a hot song. Dunks seems to think so.

Caesar can’t read.

Shout out to Will from Sneaker Con. If you know, you know.

We talk with @LetTayTellIt about the recent A Ma Manieré X Air Jordan 3 release and the state of sneaker culture when it comes to the ladies.

We interview artist and Nike SB designer Bryce Wong about the recently released Wasted Youth X Nike SB Dunk Low, the importance of storytelling in sneaker designs, and what it’s like being a footwear designer in the sneaker industry.

Adidas is making sneakers out of mushrooms. #Mylo.

And finally, Vanessa Bryant and the Kobe Bryant estate decided to walk away from Nike after they didn’t offer a lifetime deal. The relationship was already strained due to Nike limiting the availability of his products and not expanding them to kids sizes. While losing Kobe might be justified by the numbers, PR-wise the Swoosh might be taking a bigger hit than they anticipated. Especially coming after the last few months of controversies.
