OSD Talk Show: Ep. 142 "Leather & Rubber"

It's often said, "Who knew that leather and rubber could bring so many people together?"  That statement has crossed the lips of so many people, from various walks of life and, certainly, various backgrounds.

The World Basketball Festival (WBF), the Nike sponsored event that took place in NYC August 10-15, featured a number of events for residents of the 5-Boroughs and anyone that ventured to the Big Apple to watch some basketball, witness one of Brooklyn's Finest (Jay-Z) perform at Radio City Music Hall, and venture "Uptown" to the famed Rucker Park where there were young and old Witnesses.

In this episode, the Crew discusses the WBF and, of course, sneaker news and the people that really like sneakers, kicks, sleds, dogs or whatever you call them. 

We can agree on one fact......we ALL have OSD!
