Burbs Top Drops of The Week 8/9-8/16 Ft. StockX Hack



This week was the week of packs as we got the last installment of Nike x Stranger Things collaboration, Kyrie, Nike and Spongebob teamed up for a family friendly pack. Nike brought some of Tinker Hatfield’s sketches to life with 2 blueprints, and Kith x Coca Cola x Converse finally released the friends and family pairs from 18’. There were also notable restocks like the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner (There’s always gotta be a Yeezy In these posts) and the Jordan 1 La to Chicago but we’re focused on the scheduled drops this week. Plus, one of the biggest, if not the biggest, sneaker reselling sites named StockX was hacked. Let’s get into it.

Originally, Kith x Converse x Coca-Cola released 4 color ways in Red (America), White (Russia), Navy (France), and Yellow (China). They also had two friends and family (F&F) versions in Royal Blue and Denim all release back in 2018. Now, the three companies decided to release the Denim F&F to the public. On August 2nd, Kith opened up a pop-up shop in Hawaii for their Hawaiian themed Kith apparel along with the Denim Chucks.

Legendary designer Tinker Hatfield first drew up a mock up of this iconic silhouette back in 1987. These shoes both scribbled over with how Tinker wanted everything placed on the shoe and what kinds of materials he wanted on it. Essentially, these shoes for based off the original blueprint Tinker had. With the standard price point of $150 and the shoes being ironically named “sketch to shelf,” they sold out instantly and never even got to see the shelves.

With three pairs of Kyrie 5s and two pairs of Kyrie 2 lows, Nike incorporated everyone favorite characters such as Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and of course Sandy.

StockX Gets Hacked


StockX, currently valued at $1 billion, was hacked exposing information of more than 6.8 million users last week. StockX in simpler terms is a stock market for deadstock shoes.


Deadstock - /dedstäk/ - A shoe that has never been worn, with the original box and tags.


It shows all the recent sales of whatever shoe you're looking for shows if a price is rising or falling. It's in my opinion, the best way to see how much a shoe is actually reselling for. Sadly, with this most recent hack, it appears that customer data such as their real name, usernames email address, shipping address, password, purchase history and shoe size have all been confirmed as breached. Following the hack, all the information breached was sold on the dark web by the hacker to an unknown buyer for $300. After being hacked, StockX sent out an email stating there was a system update and to reset your password.


It was then later discovered by the public that a hack had occurred and StockX was then forced to elaborate on the situation.

Though it is said that no payment information had been taken, some customers took to twitter to show that their card information was indeed stolen.


This Weeks On Feet


Week numero tres on this segment. Thankful for the send ins I got this week. If you want to be featured be sure to hit my DMs on IG @ereeyy


Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Game of Thrones "White Walker" - IG @ereeyy


You already know I have to stick to the theme so this week I pulled out the Game of Thrones ultra boost. Trash ending to the show but fire shoe.



Air VaporMax Flyknit 3 White "Pure Platinum" - IG @airhoward


Howie busted out in my opinion the cleanest colorway of the vapormax 3s. Pure gas with the pure platinums.


Air Max 97 "1991 All-Star Weekend" - IG @jackhmartin


The Martian has finally landed with his first appearance on Burbs on feet and he came in hot with the 1991 All Star 97s. Fitting for our basketball guru.



Air Jordan 1 "Metallic Red" (2017) - IG @rlee1127


Rob is back with another Jordan 1. This time with the metallic reds. Will we see another pair of 1s from him again next week?
