    I was going to get the other colorway of those Asics. But both colorway are dope. I was surprised to see both of those J1's at my local finish line sitting on the shelf! Just such a good time to be into sneakers rn.

    I missed the off-whites today. My size was already gone when I woke up, then of course didn't cop on SNKRS

    I use a "crep" cleaning kit for sneakers. It has a brush and some solution you put on the brush then dip in water, and I clean everything. Leather, Suede, all of it. But that is just for sneakers.. For my dress shoes and boots I use Saddle Soap to clean and use Saphir Medaille d'Or Renovator to polish and protect- that stuff is amazing! Then I have a pig hair and horse hair brush.

    I still ain't got my AF1 Mid - "offwhites" yet... freaking sllllllow shipping and then the holiday got it well behind.

    did manage to score a pair of the Cortez - Off Noir this morning for retail. Managed to catch them sitting at a couple spots, at least the off noir which is the only ones I like so far. I do like the Grey and Blue ones coming tho, I will try for those if they not crazy p[rice

    Did any of you insane (with love) sneaker guys grab one of the self-tightening Back to the Future Nikes? I don't remember if any of you posted about them.

    I dont - those are around 15 - 30k depending on version / condition. The ones in the movie did not auto lace (movie magic) - so you can get that version "cheaper". But they also have Auto Lace version, those ones go for much much more.

    Closest I have are the McFly Dunks. The Hyperdunk McFly's ('08) were another favorite of mine that I unfortunately missed out on.

    Gotta pay at this point. Prices are deflating. You can probably get them for $600 for size 11 at some point. They're limited enough that I suspect it won't go lower than that but it's still better than where they're sitting now.

    Had a couple new pickups this week. Been wanting a J3 for awhile... Now I have 1-12 no gaps.

    and these Union x Cortez is my fav colorway by far. The Noir I have are ok but I like these way more.

    But I think these look best with a Sail lace... like this...
