Our sneaker editor Russ Bengtson is no stranger to sneakers. He's been involved with sneakers since of most us were still in grade school. Russ was a regular on NT back in the early 2000s and was always involved in the Air Jordan and basketball discussions. He was well respected in the community because he would always provide his opinion on the latest sneakers before they hit the Kicks section of SLAM. He's regarded by many as one of the few people on the "inside" that contributed exclusive info to the site alongside Ekin702 in NikeTalk's early years.
