The Life and Culture of Kicks

Super Sale

On Sale: Nike Air Max 95 DYN FW – Men’s – on Eastbay


[green rainbow for sale]

Ok so it’s time for me to get posting again. It’s my mission in life to tell people who I don’t know that a pair of kicks are on sale. Usually they are a pair I like and I think should get attention.

Then there are other times… This is those other times.

Don’t like the way these look at all BUT they are still Air Max’s (the most comfortable sneaker ever) and they are $60 bucks off.

So that turns these “green rainbow” looking kicks into good looking kicks.

You getting them?

On sale now on




Super Sale (hurry): adidas ORIGINALS By ORIGINALS – Jeremy Scott Winged High Top @Luisaviaroma

What did cost $350 bucks now cost a little over$150 bucks. These are not as outrageous as other “wings” that you may have seen on my blog or in other places.

On Sale: Reebok Women’s Freestyle Hi

(and just when I thought the Freestyle’s were replaced with the EastyTone)

I must have caught on to this late because I think I read about this relase on Nicekicks or something. Anyway, I know PLENTY of ladies who wore the Freestyle. If I remember correctly, the Freestyle helped put Reebok on the map against Nike back in the day.  I wonder if they are doing the same thing with the EastTone? (same thing for sketchers and its Shape-Ups)

Either way, Reebok and Finishline still has plenty of colorways of the Freestyle. And the colorways sound like flavors… Pastry anyone… so be sure to get your favorite “flavor” of sneaker for your feet.

The Freestyle is currently on sale in a big way on Finishline for less than $30 bucks. Its a win-win situation so lets go people. Click HERE for more info.

On Sale: Baby Phat Women’s Icon Babe Hi on Finishline

(a very interesting look for the ladies)

I saw one woman wearing them and she was working them.  I am sure there are ladies out there that can work this. Those who think (or know) they can are in luck because these are on sale for $20.00

That’s a big sale. Limited sizes are available HERE on

On Sale: Nike Women’s Aerofit High Limited Edition

(looks promising)

Aerofit High… and it comes in 4 flavors… that gold colored one is pretty nice too. On sale for 49.99 (lmost 50% off) at right HERE.

If you think its for you, then go get them. Sizes are limited so hurry.

Super Sale: Guess What’s On Sale? Air Force 1 Mid “barkley pack”

air force 1 mid barkley pack

(I remember a time when I wanted this sneaker SOOO bad)

If i am not mistaken, when this sneaker originally came out it cost somewher north of 150 bucks. One thing is for sure, it didn’t cost $65 dollars. Keep in mind that I never shopped at Lacelocked before but from what I hear from other sneaker blogs, its an ok place to buy stuff  from and they are not fakes.

Again, I never bought anything from them as of yet, but if you want to give them a try, then take a shot. I wouldn’t mention LaceLocked if they didn’t show up on other accredited sneaker  blogs.

I will say thing about buying sneakers (or shoes) online from places that you may not have heard of before you because a sneaker (or shoe) collector, when I shop at these places to test them out, I use a special card just for those places. if everything is on the up and up, them maybe I will use my regular card 9or my main PayPal account).

I think this may help just a little.

No sure if this is a collectable though… so I will leave that alone

Super Sale: Air Jordan Fusion V Grey Nurse

AJ Fusion V Premiere

(back on sale if you want for $119.99 – no not 99.99 like the pic says)

One of the many AJF Fusion V’s released but it has a special meaning behind it. if you are into Jordan and  a military buff, you will like this Grey Nurse. Its not $99 dollars like the last time it was on sale, but its still a pretty big sale.

Super Sale: Air Jordan Countdown Pack 21 + 2 = Please Buy Me on Eastbay

AJ Countdown Pack 21-2

(hmmmm… those 21 don’t look half bad)

Wow, I new it was one of the worst packs put together, but not that bad. Nevertheless, if you want the whole collection of Jordans, that means you will probably want these. You can’t be the price considering its 100 dollars for each sneaker. Now, yes the AJ2 didn’t originally cost more than 110 if I am not mistaken, but the 21 was in the 150+ range. Bottom line is that this is your chance to get them, so what you waiting for?

On sale for 199.99 at Eastbay!

On Sale: The Equipment B-Ball Low by Adidas at Dr Jays

I been telling myself that I should get a pair of these sneakers and mix and match the interior sox that they have for the sneakers. I love those interior sox:

(maybe you want to mix them with these)


The Equipment line is, to me, a bulky pair of sneakers but adidas brought them back and people love them. There are see-though adidas sneakers but I am not sure if they are legit sneakers or not but I have seen the see-throughs in major store chains in NYC (and when I say major, I mean we are talking about nation wide stores and international companies).

Dr Jays don’t have too many sizes left of the white and blue ice The Equipment B-Ball Low so if you want it, start ordering. I need to get me at least one pair. They are on sale for $60

Alife + Rivington Club Courtyard Clearance Sale | Sneaker News – Air Jordan, Air Force 1, Air Max, Nike SB, Release Dates & more

You know, I live in NYC and I never been to this store???? What the hell is that about? I am like an hour and a couple of minutes away from this place. I coulda went today. Man, you know what, I’ll be glad when I can work the AM shift cause I am so used to the PM that I sleep all day and get up at 2pm. OK, ok, that would actually work very well, but lately I’ve been sleeping WAY past 2 and getting up like around 5-6pm. LMAO, can’t handle much business after 5PM ladies and gentlemen.

Anyway, here is the location on Google Maps (Google Maps has gone a long way from where it started… I can damn near shop/travel just using the map and Google Shopping… but I still like Yahoo Maps better lol). All info about the sale is on


Tell me why CitySearch gave me the ALIFE in Manhattan when I put in the Brooklyn address? lol I’m a dumnass… it IS in Manhattan. I must be tired…

Super Sale: Converse All Star Deluxe Athletic Inspired

Converse All Star Deluxe Athletic Inspired Boots

On Overstock: Converse Deluxe Boot 

Original price was 70.00 – Current sale price $34.99

I never seen these sneakers before (or at least I don’t remember seeing them). They look like hi top Converse sneakers but apparently they are “boots”. For the guys who are getting excited about this, please keep in mind that this particular sneaker is for the ladies.I love the color and it shape is pretty cool too. I can’t imagine why they call them boots, but I guess I would have to see them in real life to know why. Too bad there are not many of them left at so if you don’t go now, your not gonna get any.

I wonder if my girl would like this sneaker?

Super Sale: Nike Women’s Winter Hi 2 Boot on Finishline

Finishline::Nike Women’s Winter Hi 2 Boot

Nike Women’s Winter Hi 2 Boot at Finisline

Was 89.99 NOW 59.98

Sizes 6 – 12 Available Currently

Well the women who come to the site have told me that this is one of those hot boots from NIKE. I am beginning to see what they like in them. I can see this working well with many outfits I have been looking at to feature for my Fashion Fix 08 Christmas Edition (lol Christmas Edition??? Who comes up with this stuff???)

I am not sure about the other colors in this style. Black/Cerise/Myth is just too plain. The black is not dark enough and the red is not red enough. I just do not know where they Cerise is in this boot but I’ll bet its not Cerise enough.

The White/Ice blue/Silver is sort of in between when it comes to looks. For those who actually have winter with snow, these boots got the best look. They don’t have as much style as the ones pictured above, but they have that cool look and the colors work well with the fabrics that they use.

All boots are on sale at 60 USD and all of them have shearling lining with suede and leather (from the product description off of Finishline). I guess that should keep you warm.

Super Sale: Nike Men’s Zoom LeBron IV Black on Blck on Eastbay

Nike Men’s Zoom LeBron IV – Black/Black/Anthracite

Price: 69.99

Sizes 8-11

If you like the Lebron 4 and if you are interested in the all black version… and if your looking for a size between 8 – 11, then you are in luck! Considering the original price on these sneakers, getting them at 70 bucks is what I would consider a super sale.

These are also collectors items. It may not be high on the list, but its on the list. So if you were looking to get a pair regardless of size just to collect, now is your chance. Eastbay also has other color versions, so give them a look too (they also have price cuts to a certain degree)

FinishLine Sale

Finishline::End of Season Sale Products

From Nike Men's Zoom LeBron IV Basketball Shoe

Was 149.99 NOW 89.99



Currently FinishLine is having a end of season sale on its website. I AM REALLY LOOKING HARD AT THE Rockport Men’s Marangue. While I am not too into that color, I still want it for some reason… anyway, lots of brands on sale for men and women so check it out.

Super Sale: Finishline Exclusive Nike Air MAX 97

Finishline::Exclusive Nike Air MAX 97 25th Anniversary

Air MAX 97

Was 139.99

NOW 69.98

Sizes 8, 11, 12, and 13 left

These sneakers are definialty not me BUT I do think they are a very nice looking pair of sneakers.

Here is the description of the special FinishLine 25 anniversary sneaker from Finishline itself:

 Nike celebrates Finish Line’s 25th Anniversary with an exclusive collection like no other. Inspired by athletic achievement and iconic moments of the last few decades, they’ve blended performance with style, unique materials and color together with stories that have shaped both companies times. Each shoe in this exclusive collection is about dreams becoming reality and athletes becoming heroes. As the first round-the-clock rock videos hit the screen, the first full-length Air-Sole unit hit the streets. With chrome detailing and colors inspired by the early days of music videos, the beat-inspired running shoe, Air Max 97 runs on a channel all its own.

Finishline had some other cool stuff to go with this, but its sold out. The t-shirt and matching hat was REAL nice.

Super Sale: PRO-Keds Mens 142nd Ghost

Finishline – PRO-Keds Mens 142nd Ghost

Pro Keds 142nd Ghost

Price: 19.97

Sizes: 10-13

 Now this is a sale. On top of that its original. I may see a few people a week wearing ghost like sneakers… most are fakes. I seen a few Air Jordan 7‘s (yes Air Jordan) with see though plastic and I know they NEVER had a Air Jordan see-though released.

Well, for those who want the OFFICIAL see-though sneaker, here is your chance to get one at super sale prices.

Super Sale: adidas Men’s T-MAC 5 All Star on Eastbay.

adidas Men’s T-MAC 5 – All Star – Light Grey/University Red

Was 124.99 now is 49.99

Sizes 7-15

I personally do not like this colorway. I think this is a fine sneaker design but the colors are like… blech. But its more than half off so if your looking for a great basketball sneaker then you found it. PLUS… I said PLUS the low top versions are also having a SUPER SALE too.


Looks like the back to school sales are in full swing. Anyway, there are 2 versions of the low tops. and I have to say that both styles are very nice. So if you want, you could spend a 100 and get both the high (ugly) and the low top (nice). Don’t let me influence you. Either way you get a really good sneaker ESPECIALLY if you plan on actually wearing them to play in. My advise (that I don’t want you to be influenced by) is get the high tops if you plan to really use them as intended. The low tops are for casual anyway, but they can be used for training. I wouldn’t to too much running in them, no more than1000m at any given time. Weights, on court training workouts stuff like that I would imagine.

So do your thing.


Super Sale: adidas Men’s Courtshark on Eastbay

adidas Men’s Courtshark – White/Royal

Eastbay Exclusive Adidas Courtshark

Super sale people!!! 49.99 (almost half off)

Sizes 4 – 18

This is ridiculous.  If you like the court shark design (which seems to be based off of the T-MAC5)  then you going to love that its on sale. Plus, if this isn’t your color, they have like some 20 different combos for you to choose from. Yes, over 20.

I’m taking a guess here in saying that they have so many flavors because they want to sell to teams or groups as well as individuals. (Good guess lol). All of them are on sale. My favorites are the black on black, the white and dark indigo, white and maroon, and the white and columbia.

So if you like them, get them.
