Before the Blog There Was EASTBAY

(1st off thanks to Chev for letting me share this on his blog, hopefully everyone can relate in someway to my little female sneaker head memories.)
Today after looking at a million sneaker sites and blog posts, then checking my twitter and Sole apps on my phone, I walked to my mailbox to find a new Eastbay catalog waiting for me. I begin to reminisce about the good times before we had internet access at our fingertips, before online shopping and twitter feeds, all we had was the Eastbay catalog.

When I was a kid there was no sneaker head, especially not a female sneaker fiend nor a local sneaker boutique, all I had was my monthly catalog.For me it was my gift, for my parents it was a curse. Each month I would sit around and circle with my little red Sharper marker all the sneakers I wanted. Then I'd go to my Aunt's house and compare my picks with all my guy cousin's picks. Then every softball season my parents would order my new cleats, bag and bat for the season and I'd patiently wait for that box from Eastbay. I'm sure half of my birthday and Christmas list's came solely from these monthly Eastbay catalogs. For me those little catalog was my everything growing up, and probably part of the reason I'm the sneaker head I am, moreover it was those catalogs that started of my "she sole serious" lifestyle.

Shouts out to Chev for letting my share my view on his blog.

Kanye West - All Of The Lights (Remix) ft. Lil Wayne, Drake & Big Sean

Kanye West’s newest single, “All of the Lights”, was remixed and now features Cash Money/Young Money’s Lil Wayne and Drake as well as  Kanye's own G.O.O.D Music artist, Big Sean, whose debut album is slated for a release in the coming months. While there has been a lot of talk of a remix to Yeezy’s newest hit we were a bit surprised at the timing of the release considering Kanye has been busy with his fashion endeavors as of late traveling between New York, Paris, and now Los Angeles. Rumor has it that there will be an updated remix that features Kanye West himself as well as a number of other artists.

Air Jordan 7 "Year of the Rabbit"

The Jordan Brand is keeping up with the "Year of the Rabbit" theme with this upcoming Air Jordan 7 release. A nice buy for all sneakerheads, this shoe sports a white leather upper with soft grey suede underneath. The red and gold details help bring alive the tongue and outsole which the Jordan 7 is most known for. This is a shoe I know, I'll be picking up. Is the YOTR Jordan 7 something you will be adding to your collection?
