The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Jordan 5’s!!!

As I wait for FEDex to arrive, lets reflect. The Jordan 5 the is like no other sneaker, past or present. I know, I know, the 4’s and the 6’s and the blah blah blah are crazy but let take a second to praise the 5’s. The clear sole, the fighter jet influence, the REFLECTIVE tougue!!! for all those camera flashes!!! When I had my first pair I could feel the elevation of my game. That extra step in having these shoes on was priceless! It just felt better to play ball in these shoes. This white colorway just got retro’d and I was reminded how fresh this particular colorways was. I only had the black colorway groing up. The black sole, white upper is the key. Think about how amazing it was year after year….the new Jordans to look forward to. In an era of no internet the pure hysteria these shoes would cause…sheesh. Rightfully so. Nowadays the highend designers are in the Hi-top game charging upwards of $800?! for shoes that are pale in comparison to these Basketball! shoes. I guess back in the 7th grade asking for $125 was the same thing…Tools of the trade for the greatest basketball player of all time. Imagine if that Jil Sander model below had these shoes on…that outfit would look less crazy!
