The depicted trio of dashing chaps you see here are resting easy, nursing hangovers (and injuries) today. Last night we brought in 2013 with the second annual Sneakhype NYE bash in Lawrence, KS at Tonic. We’ve been fairly absent over the holidays, but tomorrow it’s back to the grind delivering you your daily dose of dopeness. I wanted to take a second here to thank you for your patience as we’ve visited with family and old friends (as I’m sure many of you have been also). More importantly, though, I wanted to say thanks for all your support over 4+ years as Pat, Tyler and I have somewhat aimlessly worked to grow an old blogspot pastime into a decently legit online presence. And though we certainly have a long way to go before we can go and buy our parents vacation homes, we wouldn’t be anywhere near where we are today without the consistent support from our Sneakhype friends and fans. Without getting too sappy on ya here, please know how sincerely thankful I am (we are) for all your support. The daily visits, the tweets, Facebook likes and shares, emails, post comments, photo submissions, Instagram follows… shit, Pinterest pins…… More →
With Winter right here on our doorsteps, accessories that intend to keep you warm are always good to have around. Functionality should be your primary concern when looking for some sort of throw blanket, but it never hurts if you can find something with a little style.
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned when it comes to piecing together an outfit, it’s that attention to detail is key. Even if no one else notices, it’ll make you feel better and more confident. One department that most people neglect is definitely their sock game.
It’s time for another edition of the Sneakhype Select Series. This time around we’re featuring a Raglan from the good people at E THE REAL. They’ve been supplying the Lawrence area, as well as many others with quality goods for a couple years now.
So here’s the deal. You’ve never even met this guy, and guess what… I haven’t either. But please spare me a moment to explain to you why you should take 2 clicks of your mouse to support this dude. Christian Terry is a long-time fan of Sneakhype. He’s been submitting his amazing photography to the site for probably 3 years now. I am always super excited to hear from Christian.
Tailgates, fantasy football draft day, the week leading up to fantasy football draft day, 10:30 a.m. meetings, The Price is Right drinking game,1 a need to redeem last night’s loss and demand a rematch in US vs Nam-pong,2 brunch — these are all reasons why the Sneakhype Bro craves a morning drink. There are several variations on this classic, but the general guidelines are as follows: – Drink everytime someone is wearing a custom price is right shirt. – Drink everytime someone hugs/kisses Drew Carey (1/2 for a hug, 1 for a kiss) – Drink everytime everyone overbids – Drink everytime someone bids a dollar – Drink the whole time someone is coming down the aisle to the contestants row – Drink everytime someone bids one dollar over the person behind them. – Drink everytime the showcase is a dining room set or other crappy prize. – Drink everytime the person is visibly dissappointed with their crappy showcase. – Drink everytime someone doesn’t spin the big wheel all the way around. – If plinko is one of the games, finish the drink you have. – Drink the whole time a plinko chip is in play – Drink every time a contestant is… More →
Our friend G-Eazy was recently here in Lawrence while on the Excellent Adventure Tour. With the help of Connor Hays, we put together this video as insight into his live performance, as well as a preview for his upcoming album, Must Be Nice, that drops tomorrow. Make sure you click that 1080p quality on the video.
Well, well, well, it’s time for another giveaway. This time around we hooked up with iFixDirect who specializes in custom iPhone accents. They have options to make custom replacement backs, as well as color conversion kits. Right now they work with the iPhone 4 & 4S, but will soon have options for the iPhone 5.
Sneakhype recently received an invite from the fine folks at DirecTV1 for a video sit-down with Fantasy Football Superstar, and general life superstar (more on that to come), Maurice Jones Drew and up and coming Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek. Seriously, big ups. And this is the time to say it: Sunday Ticket is a must for any football fan dislocated from their team. Sure, you could go to a bar with the ticket and ride up an at minimum $30 food/drink tab every Sunday (a.k.a. $120 a month). OR, you could rock the ticket and watch games from the convenience of anywhere (via your phone, ipad, computer, or home TV), all in HD and with updates of your individual fantasy players. [↩]
The Sneakhype Bro, with his affinity for highlighter green and curious affection for spark-plug Leandro Barbosa in NBA2K, has always been into Brazil generally and the Brazilian broad specifically (and let’s be real, the Brazilian broad has always been into the Sneakhype Bro).
On July 18th, us here at Sneakhype decided to throw a little soiree on the count of it being our 4-year anniversary, and we had just launched our online shop. We had the pleasure of collaborating with Tequila Avion for the party who supplied us with some of the most delicious tequila these taste buds have ever came in contact with.
F*ckin’ A, sneakhype bro. It’s movie night with the lady friend, and she’s not too happy with the last four selections you made at redbox: the Batman with Jack as the Joker; the Batman with the ever foxy Michelle Pfeiffer1 as cat woman; and the two Christian Bail Batmans. Evidently the import of preparing for The Dark Knight Rises escapes her. Has there ever been an actress who 1) employed the back to back consonant combo of pf in their name and 2) appeared in two movies in a three year span that fulfilled about 97% of adolescent male sexual fantasies: a blonde in a skin-tight leather cat-suit and a domineering, sexy first year teacher in the hood of LA? Let’s think: in the latter department, Halle Berry gave a valiant effort with a riveting performance (both sexually and theatrically) as an impoverished, single, about-to-bone Billy Bob Thorton MILF in Monster’s Ball. Alas, she fell short with a piss poor Catwoman movie. And we can’t think of any actress or actor fulfilling the former ‘pf’ criteria. If you, reader, can help up with this quandary, please add your ideas to the comments section. [↩]
So, we are a day or two late for Instagram’s #throwbackthurdays. Nevertheless, we here at D.O.W. think it’s prime time to bring back a high-school gem that foreshadowed our enthusiasm for creative mixology. Think back to high school for a moment—locker real estate was the prime barometer for social status1, you were painstakingly crafting your online identity so that you both looked like a badass on Facebook, and didn’t expose any information which would get you grounded, and whenever your 21+ brother came to town and you wanted to be a high roller, you would invariably ask him to add three essential items to the liquor run: Hpnotiq2, Corona (the beer of preference of all people who don’t know anything about beer), and Bacardi Limon, for the same reasons as the Corona, except for shooting purposes.3 Never would any of these ingredients have met except for the fact that Sneakhype co-founder EG is a perpetual innovator and one night there were no limes on hand. Unwilling to drink a Corona straight, our man tossed back a few shots of the Bacardi to spur his mental machinery and then, as legend has it, did something momentous. EG consumed approximately 3 oz.… More →
