Fresh out the box with it

Every Monday and Friday, dive deep into sneaker culture with me

Allow me to re-introduce myself…

My name is Mike, and I love sneakers. Welcome to “The Kicks You Wear,” where we talk sneakers and culture.

What you’re signing up for

Starting next week, we’re tapping into the culture every Monday and Friday. I’m bringing you the best takes, stories and news surrounding sneakers and showing you why they matter — all for the love!

Thank you, thank you, thank you

We’re going to have fun with this. This won’t be your regular, degular, schmegular (shouts to Cardi B) sneaker blog where I regurgitate some release calendar and show you dope sneaker pics. Absolutely not. Go to StockX for that — you know the vibes. We’re going to have legitimate conversations about the sneakers we love and their importance in today’s zeitgeist.

The best part

Everyone is welcome! You don’t have to know the prices of old Jordan releases in dusty Eastbay clippings from a decade ago to join this community. All you have to do is be curious.

Plus, at some point, I’m buying y’all some shoes. The subscription will be worth it.

Stay up-to-date

Don’t worry about missing anything! Everything posted here goes straight to your inbox because I love you that much. If it’s not there, check your spam folder. If it’s still not there, don’t worry because I still love you. Just come to the site where all the content lives for the cheap, low price of free.99.
