Ladies & gentlemen, all good things must come to an end. This will be my last CNI post. You know when you know it's time? It's time.
I have some upcoming projects (sneaker-related & nonsneaker-related) in the works, so stay tuned.
Thanks for listening to me all these past years. Take care & God Bless.

Dropping this Saturday at Ubiq in Philadelphia (and at other New Balance retailers in July), the UBIQ x New Balance 1600 "The Benjamin".
With a 4th of July/USA colorway to boot, this collaboration honors Philadelphia's favorite son Benjamin Franklin. I'm not a big fan of the NB1600, but I find this colorway to be amazing.

Despite not ever playing in an NBA game in them, I was excited about the Derrick Rose adidas 3.0 signature shoe...and even more excited about the midseason 3.5. But this 4.0 looks atrocious. I'm sure it will perform but it doesn't carry the good looks of its predecessors...

I never thought another Asics model would surpass the Gel Lyte III as my favorite. But after obtaining my Neptunes last year, I was hooked. This year, these GRs have my attention.
The black/green "Mint" colorway (left) carried some hype, selling out at the Kith NYC store. Meanwhile, the grey/orange/black pair continues to sit at sneaker store (you can find the grey/orange/black pair for well under retail, $90, on eBay.).
Regardless of hype or sitting, Sagas rock and will definitely make my summer rotation. They fit true-to-size, unlike the GL3.

The name is derived from how a three-toed foot best supports a body. NB would then produce arch supports with three prongs on them based on his observation, thus creating a "new balance."
