In this episode of TSB, Caesar, Guru, and Geeno are in-studio.
Off the bat Caesar catches slack for rocking a Roc-A-Wear polo.
Do people count the Tinker 3s as part of the Air Jordan signature line, or moreso as another Jordan Brand hybrid, such as the 6 Rings?
The crew looks back on the good ol’ days of buying sneakers, wishing they could go back and snatch up the first versions of retros that ended up on sales racks back in 1994.
Continuing their trip down memory lane, the crew somehow segues to movies. Beginning with classics such as Scarface, Casino, and Goodfellas, they work their way to their Black counterparts such as Hoodlum, American Gangsta, and Harlem Nights.
The crew then moves on to trading high school stories on how they used to torture their teachers.
Realizing that they’re a sneaker podcast, the crew centers their conversation back to footwear. Zion Williamson shocks everyone by signing with Jordan Brand. Will he be able to establish himself as a brand while playing in Jordan’s shadow? Even better question, will Jordan Brand actually make a decent shoe for someone other than MJ?
Sotheby’s sold a rare pair of 1972 Nike Moon Shoes for a record breaking $437,500. The winner of that auction must’ve had money burning in his pocket, because he spent another $800k on buying up the remaining 99 sneakers in the auction. The real winner in this? Shoezeum.
Shaq is teaming up with Skechers to make affordable basketball sneakers for kids. If you’re Reebok right now you have to take a long, deep look into that mirror and reflect on where your life went wrong.
The GOAT app has gone international, finally arriving in China. Now we can finally weed out all of those fake Qiaodan sneakers that are floating around out there.
Adidas, sounding like a husband who’s wife has had enough, vows that they can, and will, change. Baby. They know that they’ve said all of this before, but dammit baby, this time they mean it.
In This Week In Stupid, people continue to arrange sneaker deals through OfferUp, and almost always they continue to get robbed. This news leads to another one of Guru’s famous Red Lobster stories. This one involves a gun fight and a guy hiding in the freezer. In another work related story, Guru’s manager goes to the bathroom to have sex leaving him to man the drive-thru by himself.
And finally, Caesar reads some more Yelp 1 Star Sneaker Store Reviews. This time we search the city of Washington D.C. for bad reviews, landing on complaints posted against sneaker boutiques like UBIQ, Major, and Commonwealth.
