Sneaker News: Tell us a little about yourself.


Khalli Vegas: Not a kick professor, but a professor who loves kicks! I have been a college professor for the past 12 years in Atlanta, but my love for sneakers goes back decades to the streets of Brooklyn, DMV, and Italy. I was fortunate to come up in an era where true diversity reigned. All brands were competing for market, so you had designs and innovations not just from Nike, Adidas, and Reebok, but others such as Avia, Etonic, and Brooks to name a few brands. The driving force was to find a rare kick in any town USA that would separate you from the pack, and before the days of social media and blogs, that was not always easy to do, but you


lived for the hunt. While sneakers take up %50 of my space, they take a lesser percentage of my life nowadays, I always buy what I like and wear what I buy – a simple concept that has worked since my first purchase of AF1s with my own money way back in 1984.

SN: Approximately how many pairs of sneakers do you own at the moment?

Khalli: I would roughly estimate around 500-600 pairs (only 1 pair of J’s), but have been downsizing in recent years, so unable to give an exact amount.

  1. this is awesome took me back to elementary jhs and hs with the shoes he owns and i agree the blue steel 1300 is one of the greatest of all time

    • RichieLeBron yea man! companies need to throwback the real OG shit so nike can shove up their cardboard retro fakes

  2. On the 8th page, top row, 2nd shoe.  That is not the “Ballistic Force (’92).  It is simply the Nike Air Force Hi (’92).  That was Dan Marjerle’s shoe.  I think David Robinson wore them as well.

  3. hey kids hype THIS

  4. Khalli Vegas the BEAST!!! This dude is on another level. It’s a pleasure to get to know him. And BIG thank you for rocking the “Suplex Philadelphia” tee!!!
