Back in October 2012 I sat down with two of my Atlanta homies and filmed the first episode of Insole for Sneaker Theater. I spoke on a few sneakers and why they were so important to me as a child. Some of the stories you’ve heard before, especially if you’ve been reading TSG for a while, or if you know me in real life. I remember being extremely tired while doing this interview, so forgive me if I give off a sleepy vibe. Hey, I’m just keeping it real. Check it out, and enjoy!

Sidebar: Oh yeah, it’s Gerard, not Gerald. But y’all call me G-Roc so it’s all good.

    G-Roc, I feel you on the Infared 6s–They were also my first pair of J’s and favorite of all time. Will nike ever bring em back?

  4. ^That’s what’s up. I’m sure we’ll see a Infrared 6 retro with Nike Air in the near future.

    Man… I miss those Barry Sanders. Had a DS pair on ice for years and somebody broke into my house and stole my flatscreen TV/Stereo and… (wait for it) shoe collection. Yah, that hurt! I wanted to cry..lol.. But I got my money up^ and purchased more shoes and moved from that ghetto area to where the white folks live… YEAH BUDDY!

    -Moving on up like George and Wheezy (not lil Wayne)

    Those Diamond turf (emerald colorway)… are one the most sentimental shoes I ever owned. It was the first shoe I can remember that my older brother (5 yrs my elder) wanted that I owned… lol… wish they retroed that colorway.
