Welcome back to another edition of The Undefeated’s sneaker and sports fashion podcast, What Are Those?! We’re in the midst of holiday release season, so this week, Marcus Matthews and I talked about some kicks that have recently hit the scene.

I missed out on copping a pair of Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s … again. And whiffed on the triple-black Adidas Ultra Boosts. Maybe one day I’ll get a pair of Yeezys and Boosts. Probably not.

We also chatted about superproducer DJ Khaled’s personal Champs Sports store, which is interestingly connected to his music studio. Is Khaled on the Mount Rushmore of celebrity sneakerheads?

Lastly, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 film Space Jam, which means the iconic Air Jordan XI Space Jam sneakers will drop on Saturday. The Space Jams are my favorite Jordans of all time. There’s supposed to be a widespread release, so I hope Marcus and I don’t miss out on them.
