Starting Five: Yoseph Tesfay

It’s been nothing short of a triumphant return for our cult-favorite Starting Five segment this past few weeks. Studiiyo23’s Dallas helped us bring the segment back to life¬†after an 18-month hiatus, then PIFF’s OG Rob kept it rolling with an exemplary five of his own. Yes, Starting Five SZN is in full swing as the weather continues to warm up and you’re afforded more opportunities to to rock your kicks … and today we’ve got an extra-special Five ready to go for you, courtesy of Studiiyo23 OG Yoseph Tesfay. read more

Starting Five: OG Rob

Starting Five season is back in full swing.

After making a triumphant return following an extended hiatus earlier this week with the second installment of Studiiyo23’s own Dallas’s current rotation, the next Starting Five up is courtesy of Piff co-owner/operations manager OG Rob, who’s currently rocking ¬†everything from classic SB’s to under-the radar Nike Sportswear silhouettes and hyped-up Air Max.

Miss the last installment and not sure exactly how Starting Five works? Here’s a quick crash course: a knowledgable Minneapolis sneakerhead shows off the five pairs that they’re currently rocking and shares exactly why they like each pair. You get an opportunity not only to see what your peers are wearing … but to see exactly why they like what they like, as they share insights on each pair in their rotation. read more

It’s back like it never left. A classic KicksOneTwo series. An encore over a year in the making. After a nearly 18-month hiatus, our infamous Starting Five has returned.

Not familiar with the concept? We’ll explain. A KicksOneTwo homie picks the five sneakers that are currently getting the most wear in their rotation, and explains what they like about each pair. It’s a great way for you, our KicksOneTwo family to see what other people in the community are rocking, and gain a little insight into your peers (and their collections) as well. read more

We discussed several different topics, from how the sneaker game has changed in the last couple years, to what the difference is in the sneaker culture between Minnesota and Alaska. Without any further ado, here’s our conversation:
