This is our newly weekly segment and it’s all about kicks. Throwback Shoesday is inspired from Throwback Thursday, but instead we will display a pair of kicks that use to roam the streets back in the day. I suppose you could call it Throwback Tuesday, but how lame and boring is that!?
Remember back in the early 2000′s when spinning rims were all the rage? Even if you drove a Ford Pinto it instantly became cool when you threw a pair of spinners on it! While the spinning rims movement was unique, we took it a little too far when tried to put them in pair of shoes. If your unfamiliar of where I’m going with this, let me introduce you to the Dada Supreme Spree’s .
This shoe was created when a footwear company named Dada Supreme partnered up Latrell Sprewell. Sprewell was an NBA player that just so happened to have his own company that produced rims, so the collaboration made sense. Unfortunately Dada would shutdown and Sprewell would retire after turning down a $21 million deal and saying “I’ve got a family to feed”.
Think what you may, but the Spree’s were actually pretty popular shoe around the urban community back in the day. Although in today’s society these shoes serve as nothing more than a good laugh. Check back this time next week for our latest installment of Throwback Shoesday!
