[Sneakers Corner] SneakerCon 2011 HD Video

I decided to go with a really sweet video that popped up on Sole Collector earlier this week. The first 1:30 is just showing is what was apparently only half the line but the rest of the video is just pure heaven for any sneakerhead. An HD vid of the dopest, most rare, most exclusive kicks being sold. SneakerCon is held every year in New York City. Something exactly like this needs to happen in Ontario.
....Mike aka Type X was in attendance and provided us with a little recap coverage for those who couldn't make it out and for those who'd like to relive it. First up is a high-definition video Mike shot at the event. To put into perspective how packed the joint was, the first minute and a half of the clip is a sped-up look at what he says was only half of the line waiting to get in. Inside the building, all kinds of sneaker heat and apparel from fellow collectors and upstart businesses for you to enjoy.

[Sneakers Corner] Nike Foamposite One’s, Jordan ‘Orion Blue’ VII’s, Nike Air Max JR’s

This week we got a few retro releases including the Foamposite One's, Jordan VII's and also some new kicks and a new colorway of the Air Jordan 2011 which you see here. NCAA March Madness has begun and unless you live under a rock you know that MJ went to UNC and of course the entire basketball program at the University of North Carolina is sponsored by Jordan Brand. This colorway accents the 'University Blue' we've come to know & love. Hit the jump for the Pewter/Black Foamposite One's, Orion Blue VII's, Nike Air Max JR's, and ANOTHER new colorway of the Zoom Kobe VI.

[Sneakers Corner] Welcome To Sneakers Corner

Welcome to the first ever Sneakers Corner post on The Come Up Show. Today being Saturday and most new shoes drop on this day we decided that we're gonna aim to have this post EVERY Saturday from now on. Why? Well for those of you who don't know me, I work at Foot Locker full time so about 1/3rd of my day is influenced by shoes and of course 100% of my day is hip hop. Hip-Hop & Sneaks are already a pair of things that have found love in one another. Hip Hop (in it's early days and now re-emergence) was all about being the freshest MC on the mic and you couldn't be a good MC if you didn't have the right threads and kicks to go with it. Run-DMC's classic track "My Adidas" was groundbreaking for the people who didn't have style, they now knew what to rock and how to rock it correctly. Fashion & Sneaker based songs have been around as long as I can remember and we all can relate kicks to hip hop music. The nicest, coolest, most amazing (and most expensive) shoes to ever grace the feet of anyone will be showcased here. Jordan, Nike, Adidas, Converse, Nike SB, Supra's, Air Max's, Kobe's, Lebron's, etc, etc anything and everything all across the board and hopefully on our feet sometime (even in our dreams).
