Someone told me bulky skate shoes are coming back. From the Osiris d3 and that ASAP rocky shoe...apparently top of foot protection is needed in these streets 😂 I’ve never owned a pair of Air Max 94s but saw these on deep discount at finish line a few weeks ago and thought the shape reminded me of something I used to wear. They’ve got a low key fat tongue and that’s when I put it together - they remind me of the skate shoes from the early 90s. I didn’t wear super bulky skate shoes in the 00s, I wore the semi-bulky Etnies, DVS, ES, Emericas, DCs. I’m sure someone will say I’m trippin but whatever...happy Friday everyone. Enjoy it! If y’all lookin for a cheap pair finish line has them on sale! Thanks @nickengvall for the 94 heads up a few months ago!
What color do you think these shoes are? I saw the post and thought they were one color so I bought them - I received them and got something completely unexpected...what colors do you think these are? (I post the shoes I received in a bit)
There’s always a handful of shoes I (knowingly) sleep on because I know they’re just not going to resonate with the hype crowd and I’m pretty confident they’ll hit the sales racks. I bide my time and wait for a sale. I waited 2 years to find these on sale. Retail on these in 2016 was $180 + tax and I FINALLY found a pair in my size last week on the clearance wall for $99. Air max 96s!
The other day in class I had the kids do some polygon art. When I first saw this pic floating around I genuinely believed it was polygon art (made with 2D shapes - like South Park). The lines are crisp and the material doesn’t bunch up or even lose any volume on foot. Seriously this almost looks straight out of a video game or made with construction paper...Obviously a throwback to the air max 94 what the Safari color way (swipe to see) - these look like they’d be a good hoop shoe.
New store opening in the Bay Area - @ten11.oak on Lakeshore in Oakland right next to Wells Fargo. If you haven’t been - this would be a great time to go. And...for all y’all out there expecting to see nothing but Jordans and Yeezys - there’s more - this shop has got some treats on deck - tons of Air Maxes, ASICS, New Balances, Reeboks, etc. You might even find some prototypes, samples and player exclusives... this Saturday from 12-7.
Back to school after a couple of (paternity) weeks off. Stopped by @carpediemfashionhouse the other day and finally got a chance to talk with @fbccbayarea who agreed to come to my school to talk to the kids about what it’s like breaking ground in the fashion business. VV1s are awesome...materials, color, shape are all incredible.
Supreme - finally turning hypebeasts into mini-gardeners. Do this on a large enough scale and hypebeasts will soon reverse global warming 😂 Saw this in an FB group and couldn't stop laughing...what are you looking to cop on the drop today?
Jordan 1 x Lebron 1...interesting concept...no idea if it is just indeed a concept or an official image... My favorite comment on the original post: "NO. NO. NO." from @sneakerdave 😂 Personally I'm down for all the hybrids...I think a true Nike ID would allow for different soles on different uppers...I'd go HAM with those kinds of options...Huarache sole on AM98s? 👍 AM1 sole on Safari 87s? 👍 AM97 Sole on Inneva uppers? 👍 I like pics that make my imagination run wild and this one definitely does
