Full Size Run is Sole Collector's weekly sneaker talk and debate show featuring co-hosts Brendan Dunne, Matt Welty, and Trinidad James. This week they're joined by Jim Jones to talk about Harlem's impact on sneaker culture, how he and Juelz Santana made Supreme worth one billion dollars, and he rates Dipset's most legendary outfits. 

One of the many highlights from this week's episode came when Jones began to discuss Harlem's impact on style, suggesting that the city was responsible for making Nike Goadome boots popular in the early to mid 2000s when many people credit New Jersey and the DMV for doing so. 

"This is going to be very controversial, but the Nike boots with the Air bubble at the bottom, they started in Harlem. All facts," said Jones. The Dipset member then proceeded to take some sneaker-related shots at DMV native, and rapper behind the 2007 track "Nike Boots," Wale. 

"Wale don't want to have no sneaker conversation with me," he continued. "He get fly, but a lot of the sneakers he be wearing be 'boo-boo.' I don't like them joints."

Wale has since responded to the claims via social media.

However, it now appears that after seeing a quote from former Nike Senior Designer Carl Blakeslee, Jones is conceding this debate to Wale and D.C., though he adds that Harlem still made them fly.
