"I will wear them to my funeral."

Brad Hall emerged a month ago with his brilliant, deadpan unboxing parody review series that lampoons the seriousness of sneakerhead culture. Hall's parodies work because they lie only just outside the lines of sneakerhead fanaticism: a minute and half-long description of the Air Jordan box, describing what the soles taste like, tutorials on how to avoid creasing. Combine that with Hall's laced-up appearance—he habitually uses a shoehorn, wears wingtips during his reviews, and references his wife's "lambskin gloves"—and you've got the true brilliance of Brad Hall.

"The leather on these is very soft. Feels like a pair of my wife's lambskin gloves."
