What do I do with most of the gifts I receive through this site? I give them away. Not because I don't like them but because I know it'll make more people happy.

The newest swag beneficiary? we Legendary's own.

Thank you Urban Athletics! (Brownie says thanks too)

She's part of my swag list (blogroll) and it's her birthday today!

She recently got inked, her first one. (click to play)


She totally rocks! Visit her site HERE or follow her on twitter HERE. I'm sure you're gonna love her work. She's one of my favorite graphic designers in the universe. (and an ex-Nike employee, cool, huh?)

Happy birthday Isa!

I got a message at 2am from wardrobe stylist Mara Reyes asking about the black/cement Air Jordan IIIs coming out next month and if Titan will be getting them. I said sure then she asked if I was getting one. I was like nahhh I still have my 2001 pair. (They're beat up, though, not jock worn but because of the weather.)

After a few moments it hit me, how can I pass on them when THEY ARE MY ALL-TIME FAV!? I skipped the 2008 release because that 3/20 Countdown Pack was a joke. People basically paid $310 to get the IIIs and were stuck with the ugly Black Cat XXs nobody wanted.

So yes, I'm gonna join the madness and rekindle my love for Air Jordans. (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XVI, XX, XXI and XXIII) That would be one less size 10/10.5 for you. :p

One would think that wL's customers would be dry by now but they still came, the earliest at 6am. That's three straight Saturdays of Nike SB drops!

Here are the remaining sizes (only a few pairs left each size)

You told me you enjoyed reading my blog. I never thought this was how you'd make it here.

Sweet. Intelligent. Beautiful.

I was one of your biggest admirers.

I guess that "lunch" we always planned won't happen anymore.

Maj, you will forever be missed.

REAL FEMALES KNOW

Magazines that feature half naked girls with sneakers are nice to look at but lettuce be cereal, that shit gets old quick. Real women who rock kicks? Now that's something I dig. Females with true passion for sneakers > paid models.

To my Bay Area fam, you wouldn't want to miss this...

Visit Girls Got Kicks HERE and buy the book HERE. You can also visit the Facebook Event Page HERE.

Yes, female sneaker fiends exist and you can find them all HERE. (#NT flooded this site a few years ago, ha ha)

Am I the only one that gets bothered by people wearing on-field fitteds with THE BIG ASS STICKER still on the brim? I know how many people love to leave the gold sticker on their fitteds but you do know that you can take THE BIG ASS STICKER off and leave the gold one, right? No? Then watch this.



Personally, I prefer the gold sticker under the brim so I move if there and leave it on until it falls off.

Is it just me or the gold sticker on New Era fitteds from pre-2007 stick longer? (Before they introduced THE BIG ASS STICKER)

You know what's great about we Legendary's loyal customers? They already know what the routine is. Come early and you will get your pair. Arrive late and you will still end up buying something nice even after a certain shoe has sold out. In the end, everyone goes home happy. :)

These people rock! Not with guitars and shit but you know what I mean. They just do! (click to play)

Earlier this week I got a message from "Madman" Wong saying that we Legendary's resident videographer Jayson was moving to NorCal for good on Wednesday. Then I got another message saying his flight got pushed back to Saturday. Finally, Wednesday night I found out that Jayson was booked to leave Friday night. (Philippine Airlines FTL)

There was no way we were gonna let him leave without giving him a proper send-off party...

WE LEGENDARY STYLE!

I love surprises!

I received a notice from the post office the other day telling me to pick up a parcel but since I wasn't expecting anything in the mail I stayed up all night asking friends and family online if they sent something. Found out my cousin from SF sent me a birthday gift and it took forever to get here. (PhilPost should be privatized)

Could it be... NIKE MAGs? Maybe not but I still love what she sent! One word. GOLD! Thanks cousin. ♥

Missed out on last week's Nike SB limited release? It's alright. With this month's Nike SB drops I see many people going home happy this weekend with more than one pair in tow. The line-up is ridiculoid.

Look!

THE ONES THAT MATTER

After all this time some people still wonder how they or their products/services can make it on my site. It's really easy. If you look at me as a "blogger" there's no chance in hell that you'll be featured here. FYI blogging is just a byproduct of what I do. This site has pumped in millions of pesos to different brands I regularly feature. If you're looking to make money I can help you out BUT I have to like what you're selling. Yes, I only push what I want to push. That's how I maintain my credibility. There's no sense in publishing every single thing out there.

Tell me, which has had more influence on your life? Encyclopedia or the bible? (I ain't even religious)

I'm not the Messiah but I sure will show you the right path.

Starting with some we Legendary Saturday

For a dude who's owned a pair of Lebron II Chamber of Fear aka THE BEST LEBRON CHINA SHOE (that would be me) it's hard to get excited over new Lebron sneakers.

That is, until I saw these beauties.

The second BEST Lebron China shoe drops tomorrow, Titan The Fort - 8,195 pesos. (regular LBJ box)

Limited pairs available!

KEDS AT HEART

If you're an 80's baby like me you grew up watching Full House, Who's the Boss, Saved by the Bell and had a sister or a female relative influenced by these shows with high teased hair, leggings, slouched socks and a pair of Keds. I swear everybody and their mommas rocked a pair of Keds. Heck, even I had one. Purple canvas high tops! (Don't tell anyone)

Well they're back with classic silhouettes for both men and women and Status Magazine will be throwing a release party tomorrow at Fiamma with Keds. It's also Rosario Herrera's birthday bash so be there early and make sure you come bearing gifts!

LEGGGOOOO

Peep the styles available locally by clicking on Complex Lifetsyle Store's facebook page HERE or like Keds Philippines HERE.

This weekend will be one for the books.

DON'T BE A SUCKER

Before I disappeared a few weeks ago I posted THIS on facebook. (Yes, I'm back. No, I didn't die. Dead people can't type.)

If you've been buying Air Jordans EARLY from Promo Shoes, Air Randy, Marquee Sole, SDS, VMV, other similar online stores or local resellers and you think you're the shit, well, think again. You've been had. Yup, YOU'VE BEEN HAD. I know this is gonna piss a lot of people off even my friends but the truth is none of these sites sell LEGITIMATE stuff EARLY.

It's either they're selling stolen goods, surplus, or high quality fakes. DEFINITELY NOT THE OFFICIAL MERCHANDISE.

If you love to read then click on THIS LINK and check out what I posted several years ago. It's gonna change your mind on future purchases. Fellow NT'er and ex-Nike employee Rock Deep also shed some light on the said sites. Make sure you comb through the entire thread to get a clear picture on why you should never buy sneakers months ahead of the release date...

Unless you get them directly from Nike :)
Photobucket

With the black/cement Jordan III and concord Jordan XI crazes upon us I say have faith, wait for the actual release date and support your local retailers. You're gonna have to camp out for them but isn't that what makes sneaker collecting more enjoyable? The whole experience of putting in work just to get your most coveted pair is way better than paying above retail for a dubious pair and ending up reading stuff like this online. (It burns, doesn't it?)

Sometimes a little patience goes a long way.
