(did anybody get these???)
As I go digging in those crates, posts from the past many years from as many sneaker and shoe sites possible (including my own), I find these gems. I remeber when i first saw it and I thought to myself that this is a great idea but I wasn’t sure how people would recieve it though. I am not sure if it sold out or not, but I do remeber it taking a while to get off the shelves in NYC (not to mention that it was still avaiavle online in most places).
Personally I wanted to get a pair. I liked the idea, the look of the “paint” and the style as a whole. Holding it in my hands the sneaker looked REAL crisp.
I haven’t seen it applied to any other sneaker since, unless I somehow missed it. I was hoping that they try it out again for other designs, special editions and so forth but sadly it hasn’t happened.
If you collect kicks as something of a history of what was going on in the industry as wellas in culutre, lets hope you have these because it most certainly was an interesting look.
