What am I doing here?

My name is Andy, I am more well known as Biggie Smores and I have been a sneakerhead since I was 12 years old. I have been working with Superior Sneaker Co. basically since the inception. This is a company that I genuinely love and believe in wholeheartedly. This blog here is all about my history and love of the sneaker culture. It's all my opinions on releases and topics in the sneaker game. I want to start off with some background on myself though and give you an idea of where I came from.

Going back to my childhood, all the signs were there. When I was in Kindergarten I saw some sweet Goosebumps shoes with a Mummy on the side. I remember asking my parents for them and my mom actually let me. I will never forget when I was in the first grade and I got a pair of Walmart special, Marvel Superhero Shoes. They were all white, with velcro straps and they had a panels on the sides where you could slide in a card of your favorite superhero (I usually went with Spiderman or Wolverine). I remember cleaning them with some sort of cleaner my mom kept under the sink. Then when they got to beat I begged and begged my parents to take me back to Walmart so I could get another pair. Then I graduated to laces (yes I was a late bloomer to the shoe tying game) I got a pair of what I think were Spalding Hakeem's that had a holograph of him Dunking. I can still remember the Nike's I got for second grade from JC Penny's and I remember when I found out if you took and eraser you could clean the midsoles. I remember when I was going into 6th grade and I got my first Eastbay catalog. It had Mike Vick on the cover in the Zoom Vick. That same catalog had the newest Answer collection along with the I3 Pressure that I wanted badly. That was the start of a serious sneaker obsession. That following summer, 2003, we made a trip down to Lansing and it was the first time I was in a real big city mall. I was in love, looking at all the shoes in Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line. The walls were filled with Jordans, Nike Huarache (or as my mom said "Those shoes with the holes already in em") and of course Dada's (Hey it was '03 and don't act like you didn't have a par) I fell in love with a pair of Black/Gold Nike Vandal Supreme's. Growing up in Michigan that all perfectly coinsided with LeBron coming into the League, and more importantly, as a Pistons fan, the Pistons trading for one Rasheed Wallace, who taught me that you always leave the straps hang off the back.

There is a lot more to my story as a sneakerhead but we will get into that more in depth as we go along with this blog. This is all my thoughts and opinions. As a grown adult with a Wife and Kids it has become difficult having an outlet for my obsession and this is where I plan on doing that. Thanks for reading! Stick around if you like but if it's not your thing that's cool too.
