Dunks isn’t sure if he’s a hypebeast or not.

In-N-Out finally made something appealing, and it wasn’t their food.

Sarena ran into Wale and fanned out.

Do sneakerheads buy sneakers more for looks or for comfort?

Caesar goes in on this year’s Nike “BHM” Collection. This prompts response from Nike CEO John Donuhoe.

Speaking of the Swoosh, their Vaporfly Next% and their Alphafly, both avoid being banned before the Tokyo Olympics. With the timing of the ruling coming so close to the Olympic trials, many sneaker brands, not named Nike, are left feeling extra salty.

It’s not a good time to be a sneakerhead in China. In fact, it’s not a good time to be in China period thanks to the coronavirus.

We find out that Dunks will flip almost ANYTHING.

And finally, we look into the consistent failure that is Under Armour. There are too many issues to name. From micromanaging Steph Curry’s shoe design and production numbers, to pushing an unsuccessful slide that NO ONE wanted other than Kevin Plank’s wife because it was named after her, to not having a clear mission or brand identity. The question now becomes is it too much, and too late, for Under Armour to overcome and recover from?
