HipHopWired is looking to help the everyday sneaker aficionado with tips and tricks on how to have Nike or adidas finally take your money in exchange for fresh to death kicks without the use of sneakerbots. Some of these techniques work and others are rumored to help, but still, if you want to catch that dub then you should definitely try some of these methods out.


Clearly, the market for counterfeit kicks can be lucrative, until you get caught. Five men got popped for allegedly selling $73M worth of bootleg Nike Air Jordans in the New York City area.


It’s good to be the man in charge, just look at President Obama’s  expanding collection of impressive and rare kicks. The commander in chief copped a free pair of black Air Jordan 11Lab4S from after visiting the Nike  in Oregon recently.
