Drippy dadcore. Nike Mk2 Tekno. Wish they still made them.
The Salehe 574 Yurt, but not in the green. Needed something to go with my grey shorts. (I'm pretty much down to two shorts and variety of headphone related T-shirts these days).
my friend has these - she did the suede trick. gives them a bit of a different look.
Two very different pickups that are both coming with me on vacation came today:
The first, Lebronald Palmers
Really loving these but I had to pull the insoles due to too much arch support. Going to slap in something plain and thin.
The second is a replacement for my Peg Trail 3s that hurt my feet. I realized I'm used to running in VFFs or Merrell Trail Gloves (before they fucked them up) so I picked up Xero Mesa trails:
I'm in love! I also got Altra Superior 5s to try out, but there is too much cushion there for my feet.
#kotd my favorite J’s
Love those flints!!
couple new pickups over the last couple weeks.
where has @zerodeefex been hiding? nothing new lately?
Hawaii for 2 weeks then COVID from unmasked plane assholes who cough for 7.5 hours on a flight.
random pickups while I was on vacay
Sale ISPA Flow 2020 SEs. Light AF. Gonna rock the hell out of these in the winter.
Military blacks courtesy of @batriq! Got lost by USPS for almost 2 weeks but magically showed up when he filed a complaint.
Buddy found me AM1 blueprints in a mall in MN
Shadow toe lows. Basically cardboard.
W this morning
Have some others en route, too.
Also, two new favorite shirts came from the Roy DeCarava Supreme drop:
The Mississippi Freedom March image has been one of my favorite photographs since I was a child. Amazing fucking collab.
The Jumpman on the tongue is coral, too. Loving these. Way better than the shadow toe lows.
oh no - that is awful! well, the covid part! I am sure Hawaii was amazing.
broke these out today - lace swap.
I managed to score the "Off-White" AF1 Mids in Black today - that was the first time I have ever been able to score Off-White for full retail. Even on the actual Off-White website. They dropped at like 4am.
I copped, too. Woke up late so missed the white ones but I like that these were so easy to get.
So as I've mentioned before, I wear embarrassing dad hikers that I buy from a place that has "warehouse" in the name. Lately, my partner has been trying to convince me that I need some white sneakers. While I'm not necessarily opposed, I recently repaired one of her pairs that had been scratched up and it gave me a chance to look more closely (it wasn't a great job, but they were deep scratches that I had to trim clean with a cuticle snip and painted over using Angelus white acrylic leather paint), and in doing so my ocd starts to come into full effect. With my brown hikers, scuffs and scratches are for the most part invisible. I even have a couple tears and you can't tell due to the style of the fabric. Those white sneakers though? every little scuff is super visible. I see little leather flaking bits everywhere. The spots where they rub or where the laces press are all discoloured. Do y'all just live with this? or do you have dedicated shoe cleaning regiments?
Nice - yah I could have had the white ones I just like the black ones better myself. But that's awesome you were able to get them too! I am loving the sneaker game right now!
Depends on the leather. I use nulifekicks and follow the videos.
