Where Sneakers live

Joe, Brendan, and Welty have loads of sneaker knowledge, and it's dope to hear them interacting in a unique way with other sneakerheads and creators in our sphere. Nothing like it out there.

The laugh

There is nothing more joyous than hearing Joe laugh out loud on this show. Also Welty keeps it super real and Dunne always with the crazy knowledge. A true gem during these quarantine times. Five stars. #fsrmy
