Nike has a lot riding on Vapormax when it was released on air max day 2017. Nike spent 36 years on the R & D in the quest to produce a full transparent air sole unit. Nike needs a winner in 2017 especially when non US markets notably Euro, China are the saving grace to offset the downturn in US. The combined basketball division of JB, Lebron, Kobe, Durant, Kyrie is stagnant and isnt enough to lift Nike in the US that Adidas overtaken JB in the US as the number 2 brand. Adidas tbh deserves the success & accolade as Nike has become complacent in recent years (which normally happens when you’re on top for so long and doesnt see anyone as competition). Vapormax is the trump card in the running division of Nike in 2017 as evidenced by favourable sales as per Finishline. I own a pair of Vapormax and as a leisure shoe its like walking on cleats with air but as a performance running shoe the vapormax excels. IMHO the sales, the performance, the significance of the tech and the fact its a NEW design (not a retro) makes Vapormax the sneaker of the year 2017 #kuyakoy101 #vapormax 😊 sorry to disappoint the hypebeasts, mini hypebeasts aka sneakerheads, resellers and sneakersites, Off White x AJ1 isnt my top sneaker of 2017.

MY 2017 TOP 5 PURCHASES OF 2017 RELEASE SNEAKERS. in no particular order. 👉 #airspiridon x #stash - i think i meant to own a pair when its soldout anywhere else but supplystore weeks after release 👉 #airmoreuptempo x #supreme - an old buddy hooked me up a pair for retail. love it so much i end up having two complete sets. this is really nuthin but supreme box logo on your feet 👉 #airmax97 x #undefeated - i wouldve chosen am97 japan but i didnt expect to own this pair if not for the kind assist from a buddy. i still owe you that kiss bro muah lol 👉 #nikesb #dunk #reeseforbes #denim - few chances to own the OG lows but cant afford the high price so the high retro fifteen years after the og lows will do. solout in ndc au but nate_w aka sb king gave a tip to check out focus scotland. thanks nate 👉 #airmax1 #30th #anniversary - 3 years straight i miss out on air max day releases but an air max master told me to wait for the re release. thanks again bro. and i won an endclothing comp because of this pair 😊

i joined IG in 2012 to catalog the 200+ kicks (mostly jordans) i was selling over a six month period. • after that cull i thought i catalog the kicks i wear and try to make a wdywt grid in an artsy fartsy way, like an art project eg. changing from topside left profile to right topside profile each wear and repeat the process until i have enough pics to make a grid pic box. • so a 9 sneaker grid box is about 1.5 weeks of real time wear; and then 9 grid boxes is about 3 months wear; and then 4 3monthly grid is about 1 year of real time wear. all ensuring taken pics are left and right side by side. • i started this wdywt in Aug 2013 and now Dec 2017, here it is, real time wdywt, 53 months (4 years and 5 months) in the making. i think i’ll stop this project now. i’m too old for this hehe • anyway, gotta say my catchphrases lol 👉 i always say worn kicks give character. if you dont wear your kicks, it loses its function. 👉 fresh kicks all for glory, worn kicks tell a story 😊 live a life in shoes you love ✌️ • what else. oh yeah i am not a sneakerhead but i know a lot about sneakers. i am not a collector but i have a collection by default. • thank you to those who followed me from the start especially, the #sneakerfreaker forum guys 👍 shoutout to carlofromdapi who reconnect me to the #niketalk days 👍 shoutout to bigZeRooo (i forgot his og IG handle, he quit IG btw) who reconnect me to the old #wdywt #sneakernews days 👍 shoutout to new buddies i end up knowing through this platform 👍 • last one. OG OG OOOHHH GGGGEEE 😂 #tributetobeatkicks #kuyakoy101 #nikesb #airjordan #airmax #airyeezy #yeezyboost • bring on 2018 • be a G.O.A.T. not a sheep

year end calendar 2017. ADIDAS > NIKE • Note: Earnings per share (EPS) is the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Earnings per share serves as an indicator of a company's profitability. • Wall Street expects this trend to continue in the years ahead. Analysts are forecasting that Adidas will grow its EPS at a 22% annualized rate over the next half-decade, fueled by its e-commerce and athleisure initiatives. During this same time, Nike's EPS is projected rise by less than 9% annually, as the expansion of its direct-to-consumer business is somewhat offset by tepid growth in its wholesale operations. Thus, Adidas clearly has the edge in terms of expected growth in the coming years. (from the motley fool)

fear of god basketball sneaker pays homage to the sneakers worn by the boston celtics in 1986-87 nba finals, specifically the reebok bb 5600 worn by danny ainge & dennis johnson. at the time, the boston celtics are known for their black and white sneakes which i find to be so badass. i was more into converse reebok high cut bball sneakers back then then nike bball shoes. so here it is. this is a pair of sample reebok bb5600 next to fog bball sneaker. FYI Len Bias who died couple of days after being drafted by the celtics spent a day with reebok and supposedly to sign a reebok contract. The black white bb5600 couldve been Len Bias’ signature shoes. It was so popular that La Gear bootlegged the design of the bb5600 too #kuyakoy101 #fearofgod #fog #reebokclassics #thisisclassic #bb5600 #boston #celtics #dannyainge #dennisjohnson #lenbias #sneakerhistory
