Fresh off the heels of Women’s History Month
, which if you haven’t had an opportunity to listen to Ep215
, then you don’t know what you’re missing!
Episode 219 finds the OSD Crew trying to answer the question about ‘sneaker diversity’ or the lack of it within the culture.
You know, the folks who love sneakers, have the ability to retell stories about the athlete that wore the sneakers and what feats of grandeur they had while wearing them, only to find out that they only know about sneakers from one brand……..Nike.
With over 50 footwear companies that make sneakers, we challenge folks to pay more attention to brands such as New Balance, Saucony, Puma, Reebok, and Adidas to name a few.
So, what brands are you buying and wearing? Let us know.

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.
