shoe whore

24May06

i don’t wear dress shoes, pretty much ever. instead i have a weakness for fine sneaks, but you know that right? so lately i have come across so many sneakers i want to buy i’m not sure what to do. i certainly don’t need any new ones. but that doesn’t stop me from constantly thinkin about what pairs to be on the look out for should i suddenly need a fresh pair of kicks for some occasion. here’s what’s on the hit list…

stan smith skate

adidas is launching an orginials skateboard line. they’ve modified classics like the stan smith (i LOVE the stan smith) and the shell toe to a more skate friendly (i.e. cushier) shoe. this is the stan smith artist series. i’m in love.

puma wave

josh spear was cool hunting in tokyo and found this dope pair of pumas called the wave. they’re like a neoprene sock floating on top of this amazing rubber sole construction. think of how much taller i would look in these!

and yesterday nike and apple announced a new way for me to use my nano when (i hope not if) i start running again. nike is launching a new line of shoes and clothes called nike plus. the shoes all have a special compartment for a sensor with a wireless transmitter. the clothes all have a pocket for my nano. there’s a thing that plugs in to the nano and talks to the sensor so it tells you how you’re doing on your run and lets you store that data so you can see if you’re improving. neato. too bad i haven’t been much of a fan of nike running shoes in the past. i still love my japanese shoes.

  1. I think Nike’s are going to the retro look now for the more casual crowd. Their athletic line is ugly, but I like the retro looking ones.

  2. Retro clothing is the bomb! My favorite place to find it is Goodwill or any thrift store. Ebay is also a great place to find what you are looking for.
