On August 22nd Adidas released the highly anticipated Yeezy 350 Boost in it's new "Pirate Black" colorway, The shoe retailed and sold out at select stores for $200, and is now being seen on eBay for $900+. It seems that anything Kanye touches turns to gold in the eyes of sneaker collectors. The sneaker features an abstract knit upper with it's signature thick rubber midsole.
If you own a pair you might want to invest in a bottle of Star Cleaner to keeps the scuffs off your sole.
There are many reasons on why you should go to the "Greatest sneaker show on earth". Weather you are a sneaker enthusiast looking for those Red Octobers, or your a entrepreneur looking for a outlet to sell your fashion related brand at, Sneaker Con is going to offer you a great market where everyone has cash in hand and a impulse to buy. We made a appearance at the Chicago Sneaker Con in 2015 and had much success. Keep in mind that Sneaker Con is not "Solely" for shoes. If you are looking to sell graphic t-shirts, sock, or even a sneaker cleaner go for it! Depending on the location expect to see around 3 to 5 thousand plus people. Sneaker Con New York tends to draw a much greater crowed then lets say Washington. Much of the market is looking more for Nike's and Jordan's, and not so much Converse or Vans. We would like to see a more diverse selection of brands at future events. If your your looking for the new Yeezy Boost, custom hand painted retro Michel Jordan's you will find them there. Don't be surprised if you see us at the upcoming Sneaker Con Atlanta on Saturday, September 19, 2015.

After owning a pair of Converse Chuck II for over two weeks I am most satisfied with the new non-slip tongue the shoe has. Unlike the original Chuck with a flimsy tongue that either slides to the right or left, the new Chuck II has a firm padded tongue that stays in place! I think I might even find this upgrade more important the then Nike Lunarlon sole which gives the shoe it's needed arch support. I also like the more minimalistic design the shoe has. It seems that Converse dropped the signature blue pinstripe giving the midsole and toe a fresher look. The sneaker still scuffs just as easy and every other pair so we recommend using Star Cleaner to keep your soles in mint condition.
I was the 3rd person to grab a pair of Chuck II when they dropped on July 28th. I woke up first thing and went to Champs Sports at the St. Louis Galleria only to find out they didn't get any size 10 Chucks II shipped to their store! I was shocked and left quickly to search other stores like Footlocker whom didn't even have the new Converse what so ever. After walking back to Champs Sports to possibly see If I could fit into the Size 9, I noticed a Converse Chuck 2 display in front of the Journey store! My eyes lit up as I had a feeling of restored faith! I quickly asked one of the employees to bring me a size 10 to try on. I then tried them on and realized how much more comfortable and premium they felt! The upgrades consist of a non-slip tongue, higher quality canvas and a Nike Lunarlon insole. Before leaving I hooked up both of the guys working with a bottle of Star Cleaner so they could keep their new Converse Chucks clean. The next day I heard that the hi-top black Chuck II sold-out everywhere, so I looked on eBay only to see that people had listings set for $199 buy it now! Reselling sneakers is a popular thing to do, especially with retro Jordan releases. It's only a matter of time for the Iconic sneaker to be restocked in selected stores.
Star Cleaner is a St. Louis based company so it was only right that we set up at the local sneaker buy, sell and trade events. Our last event was at U-city high school for Sneaker Emporium. Tons of vendors showed up with fresh inventory that consisted of clean Nike SB's, rare Jordan's and even independent clothing lines out of St. Louis. This was the first event for the launch of Ultra Shield, our new liquid repellent for fabrics and leathers. It seems allot of people in the Lou are getting familiar with our brand and core product, Star Cleaner. As always we did the demonstration showing how essential our products are for Converse Chucks and Nike Roshe. For those that don't understand, Star Cleaner instantly cleans scuffs and wear from midsoles, which is why it's a must for shoes composed of white rubber. Our brand of shoe cleaner is unlike any other from its appearance to it's application process. There is no need to mix our solution, or even use a brush. Star Cleaner was made to go with you and be used on the spot!
