Alright, we admit it: Sometimes we are so brutally honest when it comes to sneakers, that it scares some folks, and brands from being guests on the show! Because the OSD Crew
is passionate about their sole and yours, too, we have to speak our mind and share our thoughts on what brands and sneakers we’re feeling. Hey, we’re all entitled to our opinions!
Taking a look back at Ep221
where we discussed Nike’s newly proposed Twitter RSVP program for sneaker releases, along with Green Street Vault
fighting Boston City Hall, and Curtis Granderson having inked a footwear deal with New Balance.
For Ep222 you’ll hear the Crew discuss the financial numbers for the footwear industry, which reached $18.4 billion,which is up from $17.5 billion in sales in 2010. And, you’ll hear our predictions for sales in 2012.
What do you think the sales numbers will be for 2012? Let us know your predictions by sending us an email to info@osdlive(.)com, and we’ll share them on the weekly talk show.

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.
