Ep176-OSD-The Money Show (Yes, sneakers are discussed) (5/11/2011)
In Episode 176, the Crew discusses the impact that price increases in cotton, fuel and other raw materials and how it affects the cost of sneakers and many of the other products that we buy. While OSD is not an “economics” talk show, we do discuss this topic because we have already begun to see that companies such as Adidas, Nike, Reebok, Puma, Saucony and Asics have increased their prices for their sneakers. And, the kicker is we can expect prices to increase in the coming months.
New, fresh and funnier than ever, Episode 3 of Just Blame Chad hit the ‘Net yesterday and you can watch it on SneakerTube.
Also, you heard this on Ep.175, last week, the date for the Summer 2011 H-Town Sneaker Summit event is Sunday, July 31, 2011.
Registration for the OSD Class “Sneakers, their impact on lifestyles, culture and people of the 21st century” beginning on June 25, 2011, in New York City is still OPEN. The 8-week course is for anyone that has OSD, and isn’t afraid to bare their sole. More information about the class and how to register can be found here.

About Dee Wells: Dee Wells calls Worcester, MA his home but grew up in the beautiful US Virgin Islands(STT/STJ).
Heavily influenced by Hip Hop, Dee has always been fascinated by people and what they wear. Thus, began his love for fashion and, more importantly, sneakers.
It all started with him watching his parents play tennis; his father wore adidas Rod Laver sneakers, and his mother wore adidas Stan Smith sneakers. From there birthed Dee's love for leather and rubber.
Dee's first pair of sneakers were Puma Clyde sneakers, which he religiously changed the laces in, and kept clean with water, Dawn dishwashing liquid, and a toothbrush.
While Dee has amassed many pairs of sneakers, it's the stories that are the most important to Dee; he calls them Kickstories.
Dee has also been instrumental with bringing the sneaker subculture to the forefront with his involvement with Sole Collector Magazine, and his latest creation, the OSD (Obsessive Sneaker Disorder) brand. View author profile.
