We have incredible content and website improvements planned for 2009, and we would like to kick off the New Year with an exclusive interview with one of the our favorite gangsta rappers alive, Bun B.

Bun B (born Bernard Freeman in 1973) and fellow Southern rapper, Pimp C, formed the popular southern rap duo named UGK. Both Bun B and Pimp C found much success through UGK, but that success was short lived after Pimp C was sent to jail in 2003. Bun B continued his career and is still featured in many hit rap singles to this day. He is most known for his influence in the southern rap game, but Bun B also has a passion that many are not aware of, sneakers.

The year 2008 proved to be amazing for sneakers. Releases ranged from the release of the last numbered sneaker in the Air Jordan line, the Air Jordan XX3 (23), all the way to Nike’s classic model, the Nike Air Force 1, being brought back in many new and amazing colorways in ’08. Many consider the past year to be one of the best ever in respect to sneakers and we hope it is only a sign that 2009 will be even better. We will be doing our part in ’09 to keep you updated in all aspects of the sneaker game and we hope that you find our hard work worth your time.

Let's stop with these propaganda post of dudes fronting like they love this shoe game and the culture. Don't say you like some shit you know is garbage to appease the mindsets of the people that feed you literally and fundamentally….

    "Just because you got good hair I'm a break bread so you can be living it up…."

  7. Willis…U been listin to Webster to much. Black/red 6 rings gay?? U aint got no Jordan cred if u dissin those shoes. All 6 championship ring shoes!! U crazy as f***. Dont post ever again on here. U's a lame. U must have on some Pastry's. Or some high heels or maybe u can't afford three colorways like me sucka.

  8. the damn Nelly Six rings go hard as hell…and it seems like he only threw the later shoes in 2008 on here…what about the foamposites?

  11. and for that dude crying about those 6 rings. those pieces of crap dont even deserve to be called jordans. WORST FUSION ever thought of. The only way id like those is if i didnt have any og 11s and i had every color my friend(95-96 /8th grade). those are the worst jordans created. you gotta be all mixed up like the shoes to like them. i went to the mall each time they dropped to see if i would buy them and i was like hell no! the only decent pair are the nellys and the supersonic version and i hate those too. real jordan fans hate crap like that you arent no jordan fan. i know you felt foolish buy the bred ones and the cdp came out. id feel stupid as hell wearing those pieces of shit and someone camr u rocking some real bred 11s and dont try my credibility; i proably spend on cloths monthly than what youll spend in a year and i dont resell; i rock my kick/ real jordan hear here bitch

  12. has any1 even seen michael wearing fusions or six rings?????? i see him in spizikes and xx3s or casual not thoe waste of leather you call 6 rings

  13. sneaker freaker; bun-b can proably have your whole family executed. he aint the illest rapper but i roll with the treal. you proably listen to solja boy and chris brown

  14. I know you young cats be in awe of rappers and famous foke in general. They just people with mo money to me. as far as Bun's list, terrible. any kinda dunk or blazer, please. That shit is so played, I don't care how rich you are you can still choose to rock whack kicks. Greedy genius, please. It's gone take more than seein Bun in a pair for me to rock that Whack euro lookin shit. The only thing on this list worth rockin is the 23's, the clark kents, and the 11's from the pack. Stop Jockin!

  15. The Standard AKA Gay Footwear… No one cares what u think u don't know MJ and u don't work for Nike. a real Jordan fan can appreciate any Jordan ever made. Not to mention everyone but ur lame ass is rockin those 6 rings DJ Khaled on his album cover jermaine ray Allen. Don't even talk bout money to me I bought 3 CDP's 11/12 and 3 six rings I wear a different J on each foot. U can't f*** wit me. U just some joker frontin like u know MJ and see him all the time. He ain't got time for lames git off his ball sack and quit wearin sketchers. U weak ass butt pirate

  16. ^

    ^

    ^U ever heard of UGK (UnderGround Kingz) u know..RAP…hip-hop come on now. Trill II CD hard as f***. If u dont know Bun cop that Ridin Dirty….u must not like rap music huh?

  17. Can we get a Foamposite Eggplant update…? Eggplants drop next month..$200. Then Penny 1/2 Cent in March…$190 = $390!?!?! Dam i’ma be broke to start the year off. This is the year of Foam. Why not retro the blue Penny Air Max 1 and the blue Penny Foamposite 1 first..Dam I already got the silver flightposite this shit is hard to keep up wit after buying 3 Jordan CDP 11/12!! Give us a break for a minute dam. My feet bout to overdose

  18. I was curious to see what people thought about this particular post since Bun B put his favorites up and see the responses to Greedy Genius shoe being his favorite over one from my line. To each his own is what I say. And to respond to:THE STANDARD AKA THE FOOTWORK KING. I do wear a pair of ALL of the shoes we produce for the open market. I keep 6 pair for myself since my initial prototype shoe that was presented to me at my meeting with Nike in 1984 which at first did not have the original Air Jordan logo just the words Air Jordan stamped on the uppers in my personal collection of shoes. The reason for 6 is it represents the 6 rings I earned. I do check in now and then to see what kind of response is being submitted to the shoes we are putting out.

    Peace,

    MJ

  19. ^ I don't buy it. Michael is way to much a cool cat to be wearing sneakers anymore nowadays. he has a whole casual line as well. Nice try black cat.

  20. HAHAHA Blackcat crazy as hell…u know some dumby tellin his friends MJ wrote a post on sneakerfiles

    MJ in a vault somewhere countin all that Jordan XX3 Premiere & CDP 11/12 money. Swimmin in it.

  21. I don't have any of the shoes I played in. That's mostly because they sucked.

    That said, I still enjoy the world of basketball shoes.

    What I don't like is stupid "best of" lists from so-so rappers that stay on the top of Sneakerfiles.com for days on end.
