In this episode of TSB, Caesar, Geeno, Francis 313, and Sarena are in-studio.
Caesar gets a pair of the “HoF” Air Jordan 2009 for a steal and looks to New White Ranger for validation. He doesn’t get it.
The crew notices that Dunks and Francis have never been seen in the same room at the same time. Coincidence?
Ro Spit, owner of Burn Rubber, addresses the controversy over their “Fearless” Air Jordan 1 release, where they allowed their customers to compete in “Fear Factor” inspired challenges to reserve their pairs.
Sarena shoots her shot. Any lucky gentleman looking to gain her favor, all it will take is a pair of Champion sneakers. Women’s size 9.
Big Baller Brand is now the Baller Financial Network, courtesy of former co-owner, and alleged embezzler, Alan Foster. This is the best reality show in sneakers right now.
The Flyease Air Jordan 1 was made for the handicapped and impaired, and apparently, resellers didn’t get the memo. Just when you thought you couldn’t hate them anymore they you do, they’re flipping shoes–some for as much as $10k–made specifically for people with disabilities. Stay classy.
Adidas is looking to dump John Wall and his contract. After aggressively pursuing him a few years ago, the 3 Stripes is now aggressively trying to divorce him. Should’ve had a pre-nup.
Skechers wins a battle, but will they win the war? The courts sided with Skechers, saying that they didn’t steal the midsole patent of the Converse Chuck Taylor. But Nike isn’t one to take a loss. Not only are they appealing that decision, they’re also refining their other lawsuit against Skechers involving their Vapormax and Air Max 270 technology. At this point, their lawyers must have a residency at their local courthouse.
Somehow, as we muddle through the particulars of Skechers v. Nike, we come across a guy who holds the record for lawsuits. He’s literally sued everyone and everything. Maybe we should lawyer up.
And finally, after recently removing Kevin Plank as their CEO, Under Armour is now under a federal investigation coming from both the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission over their revenue books from the last few years. If there was ever a time to attend an Under Armour party it would be now.
