My Name is Tayib Salami and I'm the founder of Housakicks. The platform is part of a Network made up of 2 websites ( Housakicks.com and Tayibs.com) operated by Tayib Salami who creates content that delivers Eternal Value to the sneaker community and mankind in general . I have spent a lot of time writing projections on sneakers as far as the retail market is concerned. I also educate my audience on ways to identify fake/ replica sneakers. The network covers a variety of sneaker related topics

Jordan Brand presents today a surprising Mid iteration inspired by the faceted balls that adorned Disco clubs in the seventies. It has a premium quality suede upper, embellished with a grid pattern and a silver finish. To complement the theme, there is also a red velvet insole, as well as an illustration representing a trophy. The Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Silver Disco Ball will officially release on February 1 via Nike and select stores and will retail for $125. I wanted to quickly see how the shoe was  performing on third party marketplaces, see charts below From January the 27th to January the 29th,Read More →

Air Jordan 5 Oil Grey CD2722-001 7

As part of the Air Jordan 5 thirtieth anniversary, Nike is lifting the veil on a new edition intended for the ladies. This premium version has a midnight blue reflective leather upper complimented by black elements. A black lace-lock, a speckle effect on the white midsole and an icy outsole finalize the design of Tinker Hatfield. Personal observations: This is a great shoe, I love the reflective feature on it. As far as purchasing it right away, I’ll invite folks to hold off and wait till the shoe goes on sale. It doesn’t have much  a  third party marketplace value. It can be fetched nowRead More →

The Air Jordan 10 Super Bowl LIV is officially releasing on January the 31st  and will retail for $190. This is a sneaker that folks in the sneaker community will be targeting for various reasons.  I’m sure folks want to know how many pairs are in circulation and his is probably the hardest projection that I’ll attempt to do. I really don’t have that much data to work with and Nike hasn’t said much about the shoe at all. Even third party marketplaces show no sales records thus far so we can conclude  that the shoe will be very limited. Beside Nike, the only retailersRead More →

Kobe’s Passing, The Footwork, A Reminder Of Eternity

I don’t even know Kobe on a personal level ( I’m not telling you something you don’t already know ) but I slept horribly last night. Somehow I thought Kobe was invincible, that tragedies  like this kind couldn’t happen to Kobe, the black mamba. On Saturday I was at a friend’s funeral and in the past month and a half I have already had to deal with  two  close friends’ deaths. As close as those friends were to me, kobe’s passing seemed to have had a grander instant toll on me and I can’t explain why. Maybe it’s because it was unexpected, maybe it’s becauseRead More →

Vans Sk8 Hi Reissue Save Our Planet White Multicolor

Today I was in my local Footlocker, picking up a pair of shoes from an order I received on my website and  decided to swing by the  skate shop  next door. When I entered the shop, a certain shoe caught my attention, the Vans sk8 Hi Reissue ” Save our planet”. I understand the “call to action” behind the shoe and I highly respect it but I can’t help but think about the gospel when I come across things like this. Adam and Eve were commanded by God to take care of the planet and its inhabitants ( so caring for  our planet is theRead More →

The TNT Crew Shows Off The Air Jordan 3 SE Red Cement CK5692-600 On The Set

Nike’s marketing genius was put on display again a few nights ago via the NBA TNT crew. Ernie had on a pair of flyease Jordans that was specifically designed to help kids with disabilities – the shoe in question is built with a mechanism that allows the wearer to put it on and off with ease. But that wasn’t the only commodity that was showcased. The crew introduced the All Star Game attires for both the eastern and western conference. And lastly each one of the members was graced with a pair of the  Air Jordan 3 Red Cement SE ( the shoe by theRead More →

Real Vs Fake Air Jordan CNY Chinese New Year

The Fake Air Jordan 13 CNY Chinese New Year has been on the market for a while but I was waiting for the legitimate pair to hit retailers in order to do a comparison. I finally had an opportunity to get my hands on a retail pair a couple of days ago and proceeded to look for nuances between the shoe I had and its fake counterpart. Both sneakers used in the presentation are 9.5’s. This isn’t an exhaustive comparison, I’m sure there are several other folks who might’ve done a better job than I did, use this only as a preventive method. The spaceRead More →

The shoe retails for  $130 and only 7000 pairs were supposedly made worldwide ( I haven’t verified the claims though, so don’t quote me on it).

The shoe features a myriad of colors including pink and blue patent leather overlays contrasted by washed denim based underlays. Additional details include oriental elements such as flowers, a dragon motif and other Chinese symbols. The Nike Air Max 1  Chinese NewRead More →
