The Saucony Grid 9000 “Snow Beach” And Sneaker Nostalgia

With the release and subsequent immediate sell-out of the Saucony x Packer Shoes x Just Blaze Grid 9000 “Snow Beach” sneaker yesterday, I got to thinking about something that I like to call “sneaker nostalgia” and how there’s a lot of false instances of it going around the game right now.

Don’t get it wrong, this is by no means an article dissing the shoe. I love the colorway and the Grid 9000 is my favorite Saucony model. I just thought this would be as good a time as any to bring up a subject that I’ve been mulling around in my head for a while now. read more

What’s Your Most Complimented Sneaker?

I had a funny thought a few days ago. I was chilling with my homie (and KicksOneTwo’s Creative Director) Jahmade, and the topic of discussion was the sneaker that we’d received the most compliments on in public (the compliments being from the general public, not other sneakerheads or those in the know).

As I mulled the question over, to my great surprise I realized that my most complimented shoe was my Volt Jordan Futures (yeah, that’s me wearing the volt futures in the picture. The purple, camo and easter futures belong to Moh, Jahmade, and Bill respectively). read more

Thoughts On The Nike Roshe Run Flyknit.

The sneaker gods have heard my prayers.

That was my first thought when I heard about the Flyknit Roshe Runs. I’ve been on a real tech running kick these last few months, and when one of my favorite silhouettes is paired up with my favorite Nike technology, it’s an instant win. There are so many cool things that could happen with this sneaker as they develop it more over the next several months. I mean really, who wouldn’t love a multicolor Flyknit upper on a Roshe sole? Sounds like an instant win to me. read more

The Ten Ronnie Fieg Commandments

Here at KicksOneTwo, we love us some Kith. From the sneakers to the Mercer pants, to the short sleeve hoodies, we’re with the Ronnie Fieg movement all the way.

So we got to thinking: Since Ronnie is a god in the sneaker/street style industry, what would his ten commandments be? We’ve got a pretty good idea. Read on to see for yourselves.

1. Thou Shalt Show Love To Retro Runners

Nobody does retro running models like Ronnie does. From Gel Lite III’s to New Balance 1600’s, it seems that Ronnie has made a crazy colorway for almost all the classic running models. read more
