Jeremy Guthrie Retires From the Sneaker Game


It’s one thing to retire from a profession. It’s another to retire yourself from a respective relationship. However, it’s an entirely different feat to retire yourself from a culture that you may love more than life itself. Well, that’s exactly what Kansas City Royals pitcher and lifelong sneaker addict Jeremy Guthrie did as he self-professed his retirement from the sneaker game. Paying homage to the first retirement of Michael Jordan, Guthrie took time to hold a mock press conference that incorporated all of the bells and whistles that normal announcements of this magnitude warrant. Nonetheless, major props to Jeremy on his incredibly creative announcement of his “retirement”. Hopefully, you can pull a “MJ” and comeback to the game, in due time.

To see more from Guthrie, peep his retirement video below and check his illustrious sneaker collection as well, as the Major League pitcher caught up with our very own George Kiel in this episode of Sneak Peek.

From a collection filled with floral print and grunge influences, these refined trainers continue the theme. Created from multi-coloured fabric which has then been crumped and ruched to create the appearance of a floral print, this unique style is fastened by two Velcro straps and sits on top of a sturdy white sole unit.

This trainer is typical of Rafs new spring/summer collection, which was, in part, inspired by the insouciant androgyny of Kurt Cobain who, like Raf, wasnt afraid to challenge traditional gender norms. Available now at Oki-ni.

Gridiron Kicks Spotlight: Greatest Sneaker Moments In Super Bowl History

With the likes of Jordan Brand athlete Earl Thomas and Nike endorser Darrelle Revis controlling their respective secondaries, we may need to even elicit the help of our very own George Kiel with the potential kicks that will be displayed on Sunday. So with that notion in mind, we decided to take a look at some of the best sneaker moments in Super Bowl history in the latest edition of Gridiron Kicks Spotlight. To see for yourself, flip through the pages below to let us know your favorite Super Bowl memory involving iconic kicks.

Super Bowl XXIV: Ronnie Lott

Ronnie Lott was Kam Chancellor before Kam ever patrolled a secondary on the gridiron. Lott’s ferocious nature and incredible tackling ability made him a force to be reckoned with in the 49ers’ secondary for years. Rumor has it that Lott even allowed for the severance of his own finger to get back into a game during his illustrious playing career. With those notions provided, you can imagine how John Elway and company felt in Super Bowl XXIV as they took on the 49ers. In what would become a blowout in favor of the 49ers, Lott would start and contribute heavily while rocking this black and varsity red colorway of the Air Jordan 4.

The original Nike Air Python debuted in 1987 was a luxurious cross between the Air Jordan 2 and the Nike Air Force 2, a huge success because of the then-groundbreaking use of snakeskin on the panels, tongue and heel. For 2013, the shoe returns in two colorways, both of which are crafted using premium leather and what is now, faux snakeskin. Look for these Nike Air Pythons to drop in early October.
