To celebrate its twenty fifth anniversary, Nike is releasing two new sneaker designs that got inspiration from the early Air Jordan 11’s. The Air Jordan XI jubilee and the Adapt.

The AJ 11 Jubilee collection includes in its design, a silvery jumpman logo, and a twenty five is written on the insole to mark their anniversary, this being their 25th year. 

The collection also has an upper made of leather and a black shiny finish, a white sole and Jordan and the jumpman stitched on top of its tongue.

It is retailed at a price of 220 US dollars and is set to be released on the 12th of December. 

The Air Jordan 11 Adapt, just like the Adapt Auto Max, uses technology inspired features. It is interesting as one can loosen or fasten the kicks with an App! You heard it right. You can also do this the analog style by pressing buttons placed on the shoe’s mid foot.

Since the kicks can also be charged, thin cords that adapt to the shoe’s technological features, replaced the original string laces.

 A translucent layer covering the lace strips also falls under the few adjustments that were made to the previous silhouette design. Just like the Jubilee collection, the Adapt has a jumpman logo to finish the look.

You can purchase them at KicksOnFire shop or via their ecommerce website.

When he first returned from retirement back in the 90’s, the Jumpman a.k.a Michael Jordan launched the first Air Jordan 11’s.

 Nike through this year’s anniversary, is celebrating their partnership with the iconic star and of course the existence of the amazing kicks.

Woman Finally Has the Gorilla Glue Taken off Her After a Four-Hour Surgery

Tessica Brown, the woman who was to sue the Gorilla Glue company after she used the glue on her hair, has finally found relief. The woman eventually underwent a four-hour surgery that took the aggressive agent from her hair. 

The publication TMZ was present during the whole procedure. They did not just sit and watched, but they rather filmed the entire procedure showing the making of the mixture that the plastic surgeon used to remove the Gorilla Glue from Brown’s hair. 

The plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Obeng, used a mixture made of a medical-grade adhesive remover, acetone, aloe vera, and olive oil. The procedure would typically cost $12,500, but Tessica Brown was lucky to have it done on her for no charge at all! 

After the procedure, Tessica was so relieved at having the glue out of her hair. As she ran her hands through her hair, even Dr. Obeng seemed like he got emotional watching her savor the feeling. 

Gorilla Glue company finally had a sigh of relief. After they heard that Jessica Brown had finally had the glue removed out of her hair, they released a comment stating, “We are glad that Miss Brown was able to be treated, and we hope that she is doing well.”

The story had lit up the internet with Tessica Brown’s video threatening to sue the Gorilla Glue company posted on her handle on TikTok. Tessica Brown had used the glue after running out of her regular hair spray, making her hair stay in the same condition for a month. 

You can have a look at some of the reaction from Twitter below:

The lawsuit reads, “The SJ/Missguided Agreement was entered into without Mr. Combs’s knowledge, approval, or consent,” the case reads. “And Mr. Combs has never endorsed the GBG Collection, which is branded ‘Sean john x Missguided’ and ‘Sean John x Missguided.’ Mr. Combs has neither granted Defendants the right to use his name, image, likeness, or persona in conjunction with the GBG Collection, nor has he agreed to make a public statement or appearance in support of the GBG Collection.”

Diddy’s legal team is suing Sean John for false endorsement, misappropriation of likeness, and violating his publicity rights. The $25 million lawsuit will be looking to recover any damages that may arise, the profits they will get, and attorney fees that Diddy will incur.

GBG and Diddy have HD other legal issues in the past. This happened last year when GBG used the phrase ‘Vote or Die’ that Diddy had made famous on the Citizen Change political service group in 2004.

Everything You Need to Know About Sneaker Bots 2021

Everything You Need to Know About Sneaker Bots 2021

Sneaker bots are a heavily discussed topic within the sneakers society. This topic tends to divide this community with some disagreeing with the sneaker bot practice. But what is all the buzz really about? What are sneaker bots?

Let’s look at all this, and more on, all you need to know about sneaker bots.

What Are Sneaker Bots?

These are programs that automatically purchase limited sneakers as soon as they go on sale online. The programs responsible for making this happen run on high-speed servers, with incredibly fast internet connections. They can put sneakers into the online cart in a matter of seconds and quickly buy them. This happens really fast, and within a short time, a large stock of sneakers could suddenly appear sold out.

At 21 years old, Ari Sarafyan, owns a cook group dubbed AK Chefs and a resale shop called Private Exhbit that is soon to launch. Ari works with his brother, Lawrence, who has also been a part of the sneaker reselling operation for a while. The two have been conducting their sneakers business in a warehouse in Northern New Jersey, where they own a garage packed of neatly stacked sneakers.

Ari, who is the man behind this brand, began reselling sneakers seven years ago. His business activities do not only consist of reselling sneakers but also helping out and facilitating other resellers. 

He first started with reselling Air Jordans and Nikes later on then included other brands such as NMDs, Ultra Boosts, and Yeezys. It was slow at first with him making $400-$500 a month in profit. But a year later he rippled to $1,000 a month, and in 3 years, he was making $3,000 a month. 

In his sixth year, he made profits of up to $6,000 a month. A year after that, his earnings have only been growing higher.

How Can You Join the Sneaker Bot Practice?

To venture into the sneaker bot practice, you first have to join a decent cook group, which is generally a Discord group where resellers trade information.

This will help you find out which items you can resell; since there’s more to sell than sneakers including stuff, like sports cards, Pokemon cards and more. 

You then need to get a bot. You may be able to purchase a bot that is being resold, which could cost you close to $300-$500 a year. There’s plenty of bots in the market such as one called Cyber, which goes for $7k, and another called Wraith, for $8k or Balko, which costs $3K, and many more.

And if you don’t have a good computer, you may need to get a server as well. This may cost you around $80- $100 a month. Using proxies helps you hide your identity and IP address from websites, so you don’t get blocked as a reseller. This too may cost you around $100-$150 a month.

You will also need to pay about $30 a month for Gmails which are used to help bypass CAPTCHAs on retailers’ websites. Nike’s SNKRS cost $1.50 an account, and since the SNKRS accounts are constantly always getting banned, you could actually end up spending more. 

The overall cost for everything you need could sum up to $800-$1,000 per month, but if you venture into reselling sneakers, you may end up gathering up to $600 in monthly profits.

Before getting into reselling sneakers, you need to understand that it will take a while before your business fully picks up. You’re not going to get enormous profits overnight.
