Dropping tomorrow, April 16th, we have Sean Wotherspoon and Adidas’ latest collaboration, the ZX 8000 “SuperEarth”! Part of the 26-pair A to ZX collection, this pair represents the letter W, and is constructed in a mismatching, patchwork fashion using vegan recycled materials. Definitely one of the loudest and wildest pairs in the collection, these are head-turners for sure. Let me know what you think about these down below, and big thanks to Adidas Canada for the pair!
The Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull” returned this past weekend for the first time since its original release in 2009. Although not releasing in the two-shoe pack like it did originally, the red suede version stays pretty true to its OG look. A bold red coloured suede covers the upper, with hits of black and red to give it a classic Chicago Bulls vibe. Check out my review to learn more!
On Episode 10 of The Channel 8 Podcast, I welcome on one of the OG sneakerheads in Toronto, Lionel McDonald. Having worked with Foot Locker Canada for over 25 years, Lionel shares with us some of his favourite stories from his many celebrity encounters (including Deion Sanders, Spike Lee and Carmelo Anthony), the changes he’s seen in the sneaker community over the years, and how he forsees the future of sneaker retail to be.
One of the more underrated releases for this year’s Air Max Day, Nike released the debut colourway of the Air Max Pre-Day. Channeling 1970s style with modern day tech and sustainability practices, these incorporate recycled materials in both the upper and sole, and completely expose the Air Max unit on the heel, showcasing it in its totality. Check out my review to learn more about this new Nike model and let me know down below if you’re feeling them or not.
The Air Jordan 1 returns in a very unique colourway. Nicknamed “Rust Shadow”, it incorporates a rusted looking leather on the forefoot, a premium black leather base, and grey nubuck on the heel. Check out my review to learn more about them and for my on feet look! Is this a cop or drop for you?

Clot and Nike’s first ever collaboration from 2006 was recently brought back – the Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death”. With slight tweaks to make it stand out from the original, the key translucent toe box design still remains. Watch my in-depth review to get a look at all the details, and leave a comment down below if this was a cop or drop for you!
The 2004 classic Air Max 90 “Bacon” made its return for this year’s Air Max Day. Originally a collaboration with former NYC-based boutique, Dave’s Quality Meats, these were long overdue for a retro! Check out my in-depth review to learn more and to see how they are on feet! Was this a W or an L for you guys?
Definitely one of the most controversially designed Yeezys, the Foam Runner recently released in two new colours and my latest review breaks down the “Sand” colourway. Constructed out of foam, these clogs / slippers / Crocs, or whatever you want to call them, definitely have people talking! How do you feel about these? Let me know down below!
Dropping this past Air Max Day, the Nike Air Max 1 “Evolution of Icons” celebrates the legendary Air Max silhouettes that came before it in this mismatching “What The” styled shoe. Taking components of iconic colourways of past Air Max models like the “Infrared” Air Max 90, “Neon” Air Max 95, and “Silver Bullet” Air Max 97, these are a great pair to celebrate 34 years of Air Max. Check out my review to learn about all the details that went into this pair!
