My intention for this site is to create a place for me to write, share my own thoughts, share my designs, share my opinions on shoes, smile, frown, argue, debate, or whatever it is I am feeling at the time.

A few things I obsess over are: shoes, footwear design, streetwear, basketball, NBA and college hoops, and more shoes.
