Like it or not, nicknames for sneakers are here to stay. From "Red October" Yeezys to "Space Jam" XIs and "Tiffany" Dunks, these nicknames, and many others, are a key element to the overall appeal and hype behind a sneaker.

The most common nickname of them all is arguably the term "Bred," which is associated with Air Jordan sneakers donning a "Black/Red" colorway. Common knowledge amongst sneakerheads, right? Well, you might want to think again.

Kicks on Fire approached sneakerheads in NYC and asked them why "Black/Red" is called "Bred." They captured the adventure on video and some of the ridiculous responses are going to amaze you. We advise that you sit down for this one.
