Sneaker Review Website

I love hip-hop. I love hip-hop on the web. I hate with a passion badly designed hip-hop sites. Especially those written by fake hip-hop journalists who spam you with pop up ads (and by the way...comb your hair ma! That neo soul garbage is dead!).

With that said, I'm in love with Kicksology! It's a review site for basketball sneakers. What a great idea! What beautiful design! I mean really...the design is gorgeous. And the ads aren't intrusive, but helpful.

The site looks completely like a weblog but it's not (or is it?) [UPDATE: Wait. They do have a blog. I'll add it to my sidebar in a minute.]. I just wish they had some type of syndication feed [UPDATE: I'm a dummy. They do have an xml/rss feed. I'll add that to "hip-hop blogs syndicated"].

Here's a blurb from their "About this site" page:

At the time that Kicksology.net was started there were plenty of shoe-related sites on the Web, many of which were and still are great places to go for information about sneakers that are soon to be released or to just talk about kicks.

What was lacking, though, was a site where people could go to find out how good or bad all of these new sneakers really are. So our goal at Kicksology.net is to provide people with an impartial, 3rd party site for the in-depth review of sneakers from a variety of manufacturers.

We review sneakers on a variety of criteria, with the emphasis on function over form (design preferences are so subjective that it won't do much good for us to get too heavily involved in that area), and provide the balling public with our thoughts.

We don't pull any punches, if we think a shoe doesn't make the cut we'll let you know, no matter who makes it or who endorses it.

So before you go to the local store and put down a few Benjamins for a new pair of kicks, we hope you'll give us a visit first...

I will.
