In Episode 215 of TSB, Caesar, JumpmanBostic, Guru, and Geeno are in studio.
Instead of the Fab 5, the show begins with us addressing the Ayesha Curry controversy.
We unveil a new segment where Geeno and Francis–the two most cynical hosts from the show–have to say nice compliments about some of the ugliest sneakers from that week.
The Rockets and 76ers were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, so we do another “Shoe Check” segment where Caesar calls Philly and Houston area stores looking for the Kawhi Leonard X New Balance Omni 1s and the Under Armour Curry 6s, respectively.
Kanye is starting his own church. We’ll just leave it at that.
Nike is trying to address the problem of sizing with “Nike Fit”. Apparently, people have trouble figuring out what size they wear. It’s not like they’ve had the same feet on their body their entire life.
We discuss the debacle that was the Travis Scott X Air Jordan 1 release via the Nike SNKRS app.
And finally, we come across two things that you didn’t know about Nike. One being that they almost went with a different name–two names actually. And they’re WAY worse than you could imagine. And second, Nike almost passed on a technology that’s come to define them as a brand. What’s more interesting, is that Adidas could’ve gotten their hands on it, potentially changing the landscape of sneakers forever.
