The infamous Turtle of the “Entourage” series had to put in some legwork to track down some kicks, but now that he and his boys are established, he already has some footwear ready and waiting for him.

The movie is just a week away, so be sure to watch if you want to see another sneaker legend like the Nike Air Force 1 “Entourage” to be revealed.

We’ve Been Catfished.

In an earlier post, we showed photos of a Foot Locker employee in uniform that have apparently been stolen from another Instagram account.  From verifying with the account owner, @shoekrave_steph_ lifted photos from the account of the real Stephanie Roché (@roshaayy).

In our investigation, we called the Foot Locker in the Dallas NorthPark Center where we verified that a Stephanie was working speaking with her.  In a followup call to the Foot Locker store at NorthPark Center, no one by the name of Stephanie was on hand and were told no one by that name was employed by Foot Locker.

We are deeply regretful that the images of Stephanie Roché, a manager at a Foot Locker store in Pennsylvania, were included in the piece.  We are sorry for any pain, frustration, and anxiety this may have caused.

Stephanie Roché is not associated with @shoekrave_steph_ or any of the acts done by that account.

We’ve been catfished.

Carmelo Anthony’s Air Jordan PEs With The Nuggets Were Incredible

Few Air Jordan 13’s are more desirable than this one we just tracked down: the rare Carmelo Anthony PE from his time with the Denver Nuggets. In a “home” colorway, the Nuggets-themed color-up features a white leather base with baby blue suede and golden yellow accents. Making sure you know who they were made for, “CARMELO” is found stitched on each tongue above the Jumpman. From the glory days of Melo Jordan retro PEs (and the glory days of his career, for that matter), this rare pair of the Air Jordan 13 is up for grabs now via eBay.

Backdooring, Preselling, & Early Releases Tied to Foot Locker Employee

Every day, it seems like there are more and more resellers popping up in comment sections of our Instagram posts.  This past week; however, one in particular caught our attention when the bio URL was none other than footlocker.com with an image of the user in the trademark black and white striped uniform.

The feed of the Instagram user, @shoekrave_steph_, had everything that shouldn’t be in a Foot Locker / House of Hoops employee’s photo set.  Offers for full size runs of unreleased product covered much of the feed, but also was a limited size run of Air Jordan 1 Pinnacles that were not sold at the store the employee worked at in NorthPark Center in Dallas, TX along with 6 year old Air Jordan 11s without any signs of yellowing.

Contact was made directly with the owner of the handle via text she listed in her Instagram bio and employment at Foot Locker was verified.

Air Jordan 1 Chicago Pre-Order for 5 day before launch

This weekend while many individuals had the hard task of getting their hands on the “Chicago” Air Jordan 1s, anyone with 5 could get the mens size through Steph.  If you missed out online Saturday morning online or in store hunting around the Dallas area, Steph posted a reminder photo that after 6PM more sizes would be available.  (6PM is the official time that Foot Locker allows unclaimed raffle items to be picked up).

Advertised in multiple posts on Instagram is the offer for customers to “avoid waiting for raffle tickets.”

"Avoid waiting for raffle tickets"

“Avoid waiting for raffle tickets”

This pattern of operation goes back as far as the account has been active with multiple offers for multiple highly sought after releases, but the hustle doesn’t appear to stop at pre-selling and raffle rigging of shoes sold at the Foot Locker store she is employed by, but also Air Jordan 1 Pinnacles that we verified were not sold in-store today at the Foot Locker in NorthPark Center.

Backdooring of shoes is a major problem in the sneaker business that retailers large and small.  It is a constant battle and struggle for the indies and the majors to keep complete control on their inventory as well as the way in which it is sold.

With the volume that is being sold and the multiple Foot Locker stores involved in the process, one has to call into question just how much was known or what involvement multiple managers have in this operation.

We are confident that Foot Locker will review this situation and respond appropriately.

Both Jordan Brand and Foot Locker representatives were contacted for comment, but neither were available.

adidas Welcomes Back The Forum Lo

The adidas Forum had a brief moment in the spotlight when adidas Originals featured the towering vintage hoops silhouette in a number of OG inspirations to celebrate the model’s 30th anniversary. Black Label even surprised with a camouflage infusion that rivaled BAPE’s notoriously loud look. Now adidas welcomes back the Forum Lo in a simple white and grey aesthetic featuring suede throughout. It’s a nice way to re-introduce the model, as the muted tonal flavor could easily hold down any summer outfit. What do you think of the look? Stay tuned for a stateside release date in the near future.

The Force is Awakening on This adidas Originals ZX Flux “Millennium Falcon”

If you’re a fan of the Star Wars franchise and simply can’t wait for the much-anticipated film — Star Wars: The Force Awakens — this coming December 2015, then this latest pair of the adidas Originals ZX Flux might have to suffice for now.

Dubbed “Millennium Falcon,” the silhouette takes cues essentially from Han Solo’s legendary spaceship. Sporting a dynamic aesthetic overall with vibrant tones across its seamless mesh upper, the model is imprinted with the famous ship alongside x-wing fighters, which is almost like a photographic-print from a scene of previous Star Wars films.

Interestingly from afar, the colorful print makes it seem like a botched painting, but in a unique and aesthetically pleasing design overall. Finished off with a White compression-molded EVA midsole unit equipped with lightweight cushioning, you can find this rendition of the ZX Flux at adidas stockists, including Titolo.
