I'm eye fucking these pretty hard at the moment...

http://www.tedbaker.com/us/Mens/Shoes/BRAYTH2-Textured-leather-derby-shoes-Dark-Blue/p/126462-12-DARK-BLUE


if I suddenly had some extra dough on hand I would jump for these:

for a second I was sweating these hard, but then I realized the flatbottom derby is kind of everywhere and this not too unique

http://www.thecorner.com/us/men/laced-shoes_cod44651740vb.html


but, I am looking for some new non-work related kicks

whats gucci?

the photos were terrible and i thought they'd be scuffed up. but for that price i was like fuckit. they're in excellent shape and the patent leather makes them perfect for winter weather slush.

They are rarely on the map for me due to the price and most of the stuff is understated

I imagine the fit and finish must be next level

I had worn the Purcells twice. Once to a 50th birthday party. And the second time was on a quick weekend trip to Destin, FL. My feet were screaming at me while wearing them in FL. I threw the damned shoes in the trash while we were there. I couldn't take.

My daughter hipped me to these new ones. I dig them enough to give them a shot. Plus, she says they are much more comfortable than the originals.

Edit: I mentioned Purcells only cuz they are Converse products and are similar to Chucks.

To me a sneaker is a sneaker and it will never look formal. I'd rather it be informal and more comfortable. For other occasions there are dress shoes, boots, etc.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Maybe it's because I'm so used to the AF1, that changing the upper like that just makes it look off to me.

Seems antithetic to use FlyKnit on AF1 but they have whored out the model so hard I knew it was coming.

The only AF1s I wear anymore are Sheed-related or that series of six premium ones they did for old-school players (Bobby Jones, Moses Malone, Jamaal Wilkes and Mychal Thompson in particular).

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Thinking hard about getting the White Cement Jordan 4's when they come out, but that $220 price tag is tough. One of my favorite sneakers ever though and the quality is supposedly very good based on reviews.

In response to Reply # 29


  

          

I'll wait and see if one of the white/green/gray pairs drops lower. The white ones don't do it for me. I am glad they are finally doing classic silhouettes with Boost soles. Eager to see what they do with older hoops shoes, like the Superstar, Pro Model, Top 10, etc. Will they be the generic running sole or something that is actually hoops oriented, encapsulated Boost like on the Rose series? When they did like the Superstar/Pro Model 2K, Forum 2000, etc, they were actual bball shoes but today? I dunno.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

And more to follow, including the basketball stuff, the Gazelle and maybe even Stan Smith, Laver, Nastase, etc. I would LOVE some Boost Nastases.

I haven't gotten any Rose 6s yet but the 5s were OK to great depending on the upper material. I loved the leather ones, wasn't crazy about most of the synthetic models.

The Boost foam is hit and miss to me, the best ones so far were the AdiStar Boost that also had the Formotion in the heel. As a stand-alone thing, it's just mushy to me. Sometimes when it's integrated/encapsulated, you can't really feel it (e.g. CrazyLight Boost). But some models have struck a nice balance for sure.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

30. "Lots, of course!"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I got a sweet little bundle of vintage stuff by none of it. Included were two favorites, the Real Deal 2 and FlyByU Uptempo. Both were too small though so I sold them at a tidy profit (about 2.5X what I paid). There were some old AIs in there as well, but I already had them.

Speaking of Reebok, I bought a vintage pair of Shaq Dunk Mobs from a guy in Spain, too bad he didn't have the Preacher model also. He had some cool shit but a lot of it was not wearable.

If you're looking for a good Nike runner, the Odyssey is a beautiful shoe. Sort of a mashup of the Vomero series and the Equalon series as a more supportive, more expensive and better extension of the Structure series. Lots of cushioning and serious support, unlike most stuff from Nike, who laughably claims the Lunar Glide is a support shoe.

I got another little bundle with some Air Max Elite, Total Max II and, best of all, a weird WNBA player sample of the Air Total Max Uptempo. I just need the white/black/red womens pair to have all the OGs and all wearable. This was just a bonus. it's a white/black 3/4 cut make up in a womens sz 13.5. Helluva find for me as I fucking LOVE that shoe, even if the retro was somewhat disappointing. These are 19 years old and still wearable. Similarly I am also cornering the market on the GOAT, the Total Air Aggress Force. Have a couple pairs in most colors, still more TBs, highs, PEs and another white/black/royal pair.

I got the decent Js that recently dropped, 72-10s, Maroon 6s white/red IVs, white/cements on the way, etc. I will get those black 12s also, pretty hard despite some otherwise underwhelming releases. I might get those ugly sweater 7s, I dunno, they'd have to be kinda cheap. I got some 2004 Playoff XIIs, been looking for a DS pair for a while now.

Also have all the big Jumpman XX9s now plus the BHM and photo reel models. I liked the XX9, very disappointed with the forthcoming XXX though I will cop for cheap to ball in, I guess.

Got a good number of Curry 1 and 2s. I have to say that these are the worst Under Armour bball shoes I have ever worn, the 1 in particular. It's such a tease, could have been an excellent shoe and instead it's mediocre. Flip the foams, reinforce the collar and make the forefoot a little more flexible and it's the GOAT. As it is, very forgettable.

Mizuno is back on point after some shaky offerings, love the Nirvana 5, for example.

I am thinking of ordering some LeBron 13s and Kobe 11s, both ID colors, have yet to pull the trigger though.

I got some more New Balance Worthys, the UNC and Purple Reign ones. Always loved that shoe. Also picked up some Diadoras, the Italian and Croatian N9000s, along with some Horween Stan Smith (both versions) from the Packer sale in December. I got some other shit from them too but it slips my mind, those Just Blaze Sauconys but only because the price was right.

Let's see, what else, Chris Paul 13s in both colors, Muhammad Ali Under Armour shoes (weird as fuck to see him away from the three stripes), various and sundry Boost runners on the cheap and probably other shit that I am outright forgetting. I have a sickness.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Shit I copped all kinds of Vans over the last couple years. They make some dope stuff and it's all relatively inexpensive. I just bought my two year old son some today when I was out.

I'd post the link but it's not in my Gmail on the phone. They're dope though, black and gray sk8his. I didn't go crazy with the customization, nice and simple. But I love em. Still haven't worn em yet because it's been mad wet around here with the snow and rain.

But it's funny how nobody (i.e. Hypebeasts) wanted to pay much attention until he rocked them and rapped about it.

Always preferred Adidas to Nike, one reason is because fewer people rock em and everyone is all about Nike.

I'd go with the gray.

that inflated price.

i thought these things were naturally 900 or so dollars....NOAP.

thats just the secondary market inflating them shits.

they should be $200 and even then thats 20 or 30 above where I think it should be

i use the yeezy as a litmus test, if you fuck with them, and at that price (either paying it or passing on it in a sale by keeping them), then i can't fuck with your taste in sneakers. at most they are a neat novelty on a level with the nike presto or something like that.

73. "I buy for purpose now"
In response to Reply # 0


          

And I've bought 3 pairs of the New Balance Men's MT910V2 Trail Running Shoe.

It's mis-sized - a 13 4E is much smaller than the same size in MT910V1.

I ended up getting a 14 4E (a bit too wide but works if you tie them HARD) and 14 2E (still a little wide but works) and a 14 (perfect.)

The Bright Cherry with Burgundy (Orange/Black at Amazon) is the color I got - I need bright colors when hiking.

Link: http://www.newbalance.com/pd/new-balance-910v2/MT910-V2.html#color=Bright Cherry_with_Burgundy

The Pigment with Orange (Black/Orange at Amazon) looks sharper for casual footwear: http://www.newbalance.com/pd/new-balance-910v2/MT910-V2.html#color=Pigment_with_Orange

But the shoe is a great trail hiking shoe.

Once I saw the Tommy Smith on the tongue I was like, DAMN.

They also made another pair that's a little more subtle

i ordered a couple pairs of Kobe IDs also, a Sunset pair with some custom touches to make it an obscure, defunct team from a defunct league's colors (philadelphia blazers of the old WHA) and then a temple U-ish pair with intense red, black and gold, made it a redman theme (bricks and a dollar sign on the tongue, flame on the back and "reggie noble"on the inside). i also got those paul george all-star shoes, rock that shit with canada jerseys.

overall though i have been strictly vintage apart from those five pairs, not a lot of stuff exciting me so far this year.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 79


  

          

Like I wanted to choose a shade of orange for the lining and for the graphics on back and I tried to approximate it most closely to the upper. It kind of worked but not as precisely as it looked on the site.

Overall they are a lot darker, the back part is less orange than a sort of autumn-toned red. I was going for a yellow to deep orange fade because I wanted to match it to the old Philadelphia Blazers uniforms. It doesn't exactly match but it's close and the upshot is that it has *way* more of an actual sunset effect than the site depicts or than was featured on the OC Kobe 6s. So the shoe is pretty unique. You can check them out here:

I will get a pair to peep em but I dunno. That leather looks shitty. The gold piece is weird. A change in the outsole is OK. I dunno, they have serious potential but also serious bust potential, never before have I been so undecided about a shoe. I have to see it in person, period.

I have 1500 pairs, I want to cut down to about 700. I have sold quite a few and am pretty aggressively listing. But in the process of listing I find other shit I want. New models come out that I want. I have finally dragged my ass back into the gym in addition to playing ball somewhat regularly, so I buy stuff to actually use (you'd think the other 1499 pairs would cover it, but no). But yeah my goal is to be down to 500 pairs by 2018.

White midsole on a runner is so overdone and the gum sole is getting there but somehow even with the dark colors up top those pull. Nice pickup. I like the N9000, have had a few pairs. Overall not a big Saucony guy though, especially since they went all minimalist in recent years.

i hate that kind of sole as i have said here many times and even more so when they try to put a fancy upper on it. these kinda work because the uppers seem light but i dunno overall it just projects as kinda flimsy/lazy to me

The thing I don't like is that materials feel kinda cheap, though PrimeKnit is solving that. They are doing a million of these new ones (name escapes me, there is a mid and a low) that are pretty clean.

I did get those Support 93/16 Boosts, the white/green ones. I love those because it's a proven design with an updated sole, super clean.

Got some OG Air Max 95s, the gray/blue ones, still in great shape. Also bought some black/comet red ones from 2000s. Love the OGs. Hate the newer ones. Got both Doernbacher colors back as well.

Jordan 9s Charcoal and Del Sol. The Charcoal ones I actually sold some dude for 350, sold em back to me for 180. Hard times, yours mine, hard times (c) Bone Thugs.

Got some more Kobe 9 Elites, Gumbo ones (second pair), BHM and black/volt (prolly sell those as they were cheap and are kinda ugly). Also got two Kobe 11 IDs, a Redman pair and a Philadelphia Blazers pair.

Got the PG all-star shoes (Canada shits), All-Star KDs, woven KDs, Seahawks Field General, khaki Calvin Johnson 3s, Air Max 2016 black/silver and maybe some other shit I am forgetting.

I picked up three pairs of Under Armour Fortis. Great shoe, highly recommend it. I wish the upper had a little more structure but the tooling is awesome, even the outsole is pretty good (most UA runners have crappy outsoles IMO). I also fuck with the AdiStar Boost, got another pair. I got that whole pack of NYC Asics, too, the price was right.

Got some Jordan 6s, replaced the Olympic pairs I sold cheap and did the same with a Motorsport pair.

I got a couple player samples made for AI, Question III from his Nuggets days and an Answer XIII from his Pistons stint.

Got some OG shit, too, Flight 96, Air Max Strong in two colors, Air Solo Flight, Air Max Force Authority (been looking for a pair for some time), more Aggress Force (I can never have enough), 98 Terra Sertigs and the last ever paid (1996) of Air Maestros. Everything DS, also got

I picked up the Jordan 12 Masters and Wings, also got the Dunk from Above 4s. Not sure what will stay but a decent group for recent releases. Also got the iron purple Jordan 2s, replaced a pair I sold for more than it was worth.

I have a bunch of Curry 2s now, about half the colors that have dropped.

I picked up those Kyrie Irving HD 2014s, price was right. I also got some OG Dr Doom Foamposites, they were in pretty much perfect shape and I don't trust the forthcoming retro. For the same price, give me the OGs.




And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

The pre-order was a fake account. Luckily, everything is through PayPal, so it wasn't hard to get my money back. I found another pair on Sunday, but dude had already sold them and forgot to take the listing down.

I need an reliable "I ain't standing in no fuckin line on a Saturday" option for the Flu Game's.

Not sure about buying, especially pre-orders. Pre-order seems like overkill now, anything available for pre-order you can get through other means and cheaper. The real fire that will go for double or quintuple the price won't be there for pre order

Only complaint is the fit in the toe box....a little too much space. I might have to start double socking it. Not a major problem, but the shoe would be pretty much perfect for me if it fit a little tighter to the foot in that area.

But the cushion, traction, and support? Top notch. These things are beasts.

I remember seeing these at the outlets back when they dropped a few years ago but hesitated to buy them. I made sure I got a pair this time around.

This is my favorite model from the Penny line and one of my all-time favorite sneakers. The white/atlantic colorway was my first signature sneaker I ever had back in 6th grade.

122. "I got another pair of OG Carbon Fiber Flightposites, sooooo crispy"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This is what I hate about Nike more than anything, even though I benefited from it in this case. They re-issued a horrible version of these and flooded the market with it. The pair I bought, which is OG and very near deadstock, would have cost me $800 easily in the recent past, before the announcement of the retro and possibly even just before its release. Now these sorry ass excuses for the same shoe are out there and these only cost me $250. They screw the collector and the consumer at the same time by releasing an inferior product that devalues the superior one.

I have slowed down a little, mainly because not much out there has appealed to me of late. That still means I am buying 4-5 pairs a week though LOL. I got some of those Notre Dame Clutchfit Drives and also the Championship Banner lows. Starting to dig the shoe anew. The CFD 2 is not as good, I am trying to warm up to the Highlight versions but so far they are just OK and the regular one is a dud. Charged Foam kind of sucks, Micro G is way better. I got some more Ali Phenoms and the black/grey/blue pair also. Good shoe, it could use a little more support though. Reinforce the SpeedForm like they did on the Curry 2, though I can't really grow to love those (again Charged foam, though I do like that on the Fortis runner).

If you like running shoes I think the Asics Gel Quantum and Saucony Iso Triumph 2 are great ones I have tried lately. Quantum is really, really cushy but not mushy. Triumph has great fit, long-lasting comfort. I got some new Mizuno models also but have not worn them yet.

I bought a pair of Air Zoom Ultrafly, a tennis sneaker. Very interesting shoe. It has a Pebax plate like you would find on a football or soccer cleat. I would say the shoe is a combination of the Superfly Mercurial soccer cleat and a traditional Zoom Air tennis shoe. It's maybe not quite as fluid heel to toe as the Lunar Ballistec, still the gold standard for Nike tennis IMO, but it's much faster and the materials are pretty intriguing. I think for a lighter player, this is the best shoe by far, definitely better than the Federer stuff.

I cannot go back to LeBrons. I had a Nike gift card and they were $98 at the outlet, bought three pairs. They are all on eBay, rather turn that gift card into cash now and maybe make a couple bucks. The shoe is bulky though not as heavy on the foot as the last few models. It pinches near the forefoot and there is no effective way to adjust the fit. The bottom-loaded Zoom Air is just bad technology for a basketball shoe as these and the other models (LeBron 12, CP3 IX, etc) prove. The Foam material in the upper is almost 100% superfluous. I thought maybe the Elites would be better but I am not enticed to try them unless they drop to $100 also. The sole sucks in terms of both cushioning and traction. I don't know WTF Nike is thinking.

I got several ID pairs of Kobe 11s. Not sure what I think yet. For basketball I feel like the ankle support is weak and flexibility is very poor. Why did they pare this release down so much? Where is the engineered mesh version? The high top Elite version? In those iterations, the shoe has potential. I like it better than the Kobe 9 Elite low, which is a very similar shoe, but that doesn't say much. I hated those, though I liked the EM version and Elite high version of the 9. The idea of a Flyknit basketball shoe is all for show and I think it complicates the design/engineering. Adidas's use of PrimeKnit is much more effective, though still not ideal for bball.

I still love the Air Jordan XX8. XXX seems to have fixed some issues on the XX9 but I still haven't gotten a pair. Too plain. Will get something cheap down the line, or wait for a color that grabs my attention.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 123


  

          

You have any issues like that?

I've got my eye on them for down the road, when I need a new pair and when they'll be able to be found for lower prices.

I've got a few pairs of hoop shoes right now, but the Rose 6 is by far my favorite. Maybe my favorite ever to play in. It's just such a comfortable shoe. Great traction too. They might not last real long though, not sure how durable the primeknit will be.

I hoop like twice a month at the most so maybe someone who puts more time in them would experience that?

255. "I dumped mine for that reason"
In response to Reply # 127


  

          

IMO they offered some improvement over the XX9--more secure fit with less slippage mainly--but the heel counter was a nonstarter for me (same problem with the Crazy Explosive 2017 only worse, similar issue with the LeBron 13 Elite but went away eventually). Another issue is that I think all the models has translucent outsoles. WHY? Wears like shit in terms of aesthetics and performances. I liked the XX9 a lot more. The Melo M11 and the XX8 were AWESOME Jordan releases, it's unfortunate we have seen the Melo line go to shit with the last two models and that Nike didn't give us more of that xx8 tooling. Awesome traction, carbon fiber in the midfoot, huge Zoom units in both the heel and forefoot. It was a tease to give us that and then dial it back. XXX1 seemed great in theory but only the battle grey ones fit me properly for some reason (also feel the best in terms of the Zoom) and overall the stability sucks, traction is mediocre. OK for me as a bigger player but I think they would be frustrating to play in for guards and wings, ironically.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 126


  

          

i havent gotten mine yet (taking forever) but i ordered two pairs. given how the pattern is and also that they were less expensive than the sunset ones, i figure they are EM. i will probably get that Lower Merion colorway when it drops in price; I am a sucker for those.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I really like them. Basically the whole outer is one piece, and there's a strechy sock thing inside. Really nice materials.

but I feel like the deconstructed joints are cheating; I want ALL THE PANELS, not that CAD design boolshxt. Nike's been doing the same thing. I guess the unibody construction reduces the stress points but I rock NBas more for style than running. LOL

In response to Reply # 128


          

I dont usually like the Nike ones. Maybe it's because I couldn't pick a 580 out from any other NB sneaker so it doesn't really seem like a "different" version of something else.

Also I would guess these are lighter and more comfortable than the regular ones.

Haven't put many miles in them yet, but I really like them for just wearing around. Found them on sale, since they are an older model.

Also found the UnderArmour Torch 4 for $35 at Marshalls, so I grabbed a pair.

Only shoes I *need* are some versatile brown shoes (that can be worn with jeans and slacks) and some brown dress shoes. Basketball shoes I'll need soon too probly.

Bought the below recently

For running/gym
http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/air-max-full-ride-tr-training-shoe/pid-10871696/pgid-11177734

For summer/casual
http://www.shoebuy.com/sperry-top-sider-striper-cvo-salt-washed-twill/685085/1403407?cm_mmc=googleproductads_pla-_-none-_-none-_-none

Been eyeing these for a while for casual/lounging (either blue or grey)
http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/air-pegasus-89-t-shoe/pid-10951357/pgid-11088752

But because of someone above I now may go with these instead
http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/nike-air-odyssey-prm-sneaker/4025547?cm_mmc=Google_Product_Ads_pla_online-_-datafeed-_-men%3Ashoes%3Asneaker-_-1104420&%3Bcountry=US&%3Bcurrency=USD&mr%3AreferralID=ab1319c5-17d8-11e6-a45f-0050569406b5&gclid=CJPojpWk08wCFVhbhgodFOwC6A

And lastly, I was a HUGE Penny fan back in the day and had both of the kicks below when I was a kid. Trying to decide which one to nostalgia-splurge on now

The knit looks better on these new versions that are coming too IMO. Hopefully Kanye doesn't wear them, so you'll be able to actually buy them.

So far the readily available colorways are what have kept me from buying a pair of ultra boosts....too much money to pay unless I like everything about the shoe. The black ones are cool, but always seem to be sold out.

the uncaged ones have a black/gray/black boost with a black sole and another with a white sole (looks weird).

you could also get the nemeziz ultra boost and ace control ultra boost in triple black.

ordered a pair, they came wit the tongues not sewn in

i hit them up, and they quickly offered a replacement pair, but were out of what i ordered

i accepted a different pair, which came fine, but were super ugly in person

meanwhile i had the tongues sewn in on the other pair for $5, so ended up with 2 pairs for the price of 1 + $5, which is cool, but the original pair was kinda ugly in person too tbh, and the construction was still kinda "off" they always wore funny

ended up ultimately donating them both

these folks on the other hand, I've been very happy with

Both light and comfortable. Haven't bought anything in a few months though. Prestos always been kind of a love it or hate it shoe.....I like the updated model with the higher collar a lot, but it probably makes it even more polarizing. Very comfortable to wear.

I'll probably buy at least one new basketball shoe eventually. Of the ones already out, I'm looking at the D Rose 7 or the Crazy Explosive. Possibly the KD 9. I'll wait until they're on sale though. Until then, I probably won't buy any new shoes.

I'm coming around to using modern materials on the classic sillouettes. Just takes some getting use to the new look.

Though I live in a climate where due to the snow, ice, slush, salt, and sand oftentimes the only practical winter shoe option is boots, and flyknit will get your feet wet. So that's why bball shoes are the only ones on my mind for the coming months, because the court is the only place I'll wear a sneaker from like dec. - feb.

Wasn't around on the weekend they released to go through the expected BS of trying to get them, so I missed out for now.

I still have never pulled the trigger on some Jordan 1's, and I was about to, until I saw these. Shits were stacked floor to ceiling.

This still only has me averaging 1 hot shoe per year from the outlet.

I remember being surprised that those aqua 8s seemed to be sitting in stores though after they came out. The maroon 6s kinda did too.

165. " Lebron 11's, and Chris Webbers (called the sensation or something now)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Both for $80. I loved those Webbers as a kid, but they were the most expensive bball shoe out - causing him to leave Nike. Got it for almost half the price that it cost 20 years ago....I'm glad the general public pretty much only cares about retro Jordans. Cheaper prices on the other retro shit that I like better than most J's anyway.

Lebron 11's are the only Lebron that's ever interested me, so I grabbed them when I saw them for cheap. probably going to start hooping in them, these things are beasts.

In response to Reply # 166


  

          

They were uncomfortably tight on the sides and on my pinky toes at first, but now they feel good. I love the soft cushioning, which my feet and knees need if I'm hooping these days. Always loved the way these look, I wasn't paying the $200 retail when they came out though. But for $80? Hell yeah.

In response to Reply # 168


  

          

No pain anywhere now, though the first few wears were brutal on my pinkie toes.

Can't wait to hoop in these, though even if they don't work out on court I'll still wear them casually. They're one of the few modern bball shoes that I like the looks of to wear casually.

274. "lol totally, also super durable uppers, flimsy AF outsoles. paradox for ..."
In response to Reply # 166


  

          

I bought many pairs (lots of GRs at the outlet plus some cheap ID pairs on eBay that I liked) and only some squeak. The insole is what squeaks so I just change out the ones that do (you can also use that insole in the Kobe 9 very effectively, which I love doing).

They don't hurt my feet at all but you are not alone, LeBron primarily wore the Zoom Soldier that year because the 11s crushed his weird ass hammer toes. Other than the EXT model, which I wore outdoors with no problem, the outsoles fucking suck on those. All the dudes I hoop with that had them wore straight through their shits playing outside and indoors they didn't hold up great either. I don't use any one pair that often so I had no issues inside, only used the EXTs outdoors (the gray/purple ones).

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 315


  

          

in time it's kind of a nice change of pace, more space in the toe box and a different feel to the cushion. i do prefer the other way around though, lebron 11 insole in the kobe 9. takes out all the dead space and makes the shoe a lot softer and a bit faster

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I kinda like the grays too. If I needed another pair of bball shoes, those would be high on my list.

Adidas is killing it with their bball shoes lately. I still want a pair of Lillard 2's, but the colorways I like are hard to find right now.

These are dope as hell. I've had my eyes on a pair but just couldn't bust a move until I took care of some the needs I had as far as dress shoes are concerned. I can picture these paired with a slick ass sweatsuit. They'd be even tougher with a black sole but they're still dope.

1. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/salvatore-ferragamo-gris-plain-toe-oxford-men/4327975

I copped the last pair they had in my size. had been watching them all year. The price had dropped by close to $360 when I snatched them. The paint splatters are inspired by Andy Warhol who wore this brand and model shoe back in his days. Ferragamo commissions artists in Italy to customize the shoes. Each pair is different from the next. There's a matching belt but I cannot wrap my mind around paying for a $500 belt regardless of how dope it is.

Here ya go: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/salvatore-ferragamo-paint-splatter-leather-belt/4321522?origin=category-personalizedsort&fashioncolor=RODEO

2. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/salvatore-ferragamo-parigi-patent-leather-driving-shoe-men/3812387?origin=category-personalizedsort&fashioncolor=BLACK%2F%20BLACK%20PATENT%20LEATHER

Copped these at the same time as the others. They were both in my Wishlist. Had been sitting on them for a while. Once the sale hit, I got these for almost nothing ($100) because of the rewards points ($) I have accumulated at Nordstroms since August of this year. Kick around joints for the weekend and traveling.

3. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/salvatore-ferragamo-gerard-wingtip-men/4270633

The last of my Ferragamo spree for this year. I needed a fresh wingtip that could go from work to the bar and back.

4. https://www.mrporter.com/en-se/mens/grenson/sid-polished-leather-wingtip-brogues/723991?ppv=2

I bought these right before Thanksgiving when they had a 30% sale popping off. When they arrived, I tried them on to find that they were too damned big. Mr. Porter's conversion chart and statement of "Fits true to size" was inaccurate. When I went to the site to perform an exchange, they were already sold out of the size I now needed which was a UK8 for this brand. Decided to send them back and not toy around with trying to make them fit. Plus, I'm not a big fan of wearing black shoes anyway. So, I wasn't in love with them per se. More so statement pieces for when I'm in the mood to do something different than my normal. These were gonna be a kick around shoe for casual Fridays and the weekends.

I'm really just in the mood to do Stan Smiths or some other classic cheap sneakers like that right now. All my money is going towards building a lifetime wardrobe with shoes that I can keep for the next ten to fifteen years. Dropped #1 and #3 off Saturday to have the soles and heels protected. Tonight, I'm gonna put that first coat of wax to make sure they're ready to be put to work.


Edit: I did cop these about a month ago.

Yeah. Find a nice one and do the same. I don't see why it could be a bad move either.

On the black version of this shoe, they use blue and pink if I remember correctly.

Something easy on the dogs which is what that white sole on the brown wingtip ones makes me think of. The black ones are cool too because they have a gum sole. They just look comfortable.

these fuckers have sever fucking toe chop.

its the rubber toe box.

the first 4 times I wore them I would end up limping because my toes were getting smashed with every step

I ended up adding a footbed on a whim and it totally fixed the issue.

I'm on year two and they are still holding up

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Really didn't need these. Didn't need shoes to ball in, though I think these would be very good based on shooting around in them. Don't want to wear them casually because that white Primeknit will be a bitch to keep clean.

But I just loved this shoe. Only $99 after discount too.

260. "PK is actually very easy to clean"
In response to Reply # 204
Thu Aug-24-17 01:54 PM by ConcreteCharlie

  

          

Take a mild soap, even like body wash is OK, squirt a small amount (like what you'd put in a sponge or slightly less) and put in a little cup. Fill the cup with tepid water (cold if you have stains) and swish the soap around. Dip a toothbrush in there and then firmly (but not roughly) brush the uppers. Dry with a very soft towel or a fresh flannel. I have those white/silver ultraboosts and they get dirty AF every other wear, my girlfriend also trashes her pink uncaged ones running. I clean them both and they look great. The bigger issue is snags, I snagged a pair of AceControl Boosts on my hi-hat stand and it was very delicate to repair.

I like those Lillards, Bounce cushioning is nice when done right. The next Lillards will have it also. Just one sort of side release of his with Boost. I am not obsessed with Boost for basketball, in fact more times than not it has come out kinda poorly.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 260


  

          

Yeah, I like the bounce cushioning in those Lillards a lot. Still haven't played in them though. Really loving the engineered mesh Kobe 11. It fits me perfectly and the traction is great.

I've only played in boost with the D Rose 6. II really noticed around the time I switched to those that my feet and back and knees were feeling fine after playing. But I also always felt slow in them. I think part of it was it's just a big ass shoe, but the cushioning was almost too much to where you're sinking in, which made me feel slower.

268. "Kobe 11 didn't do much for me"
In response to Reply # 265


  

          

The mesh versions I didn't like the cushioning that much, the Flyknit versions just suck, Flyknit as of now is not a good material for basketball shoes. I got two ID pairs with the drop-in Zoom Air and that solved the cushioning issue but they are heavier, less forgiving in the box and all-around awkward compared with the mesh version. After two hits with the Kobe 8 and 9, I think I have given up on the Kobes. The AD was a real loser and a preview of things to come. I do not think he'll be a guy that moves a lot in retirement.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 276


  

          

i only tried the standard low that was like $160. i saw the sort of beige or taupe colored mid with the weird wrap or shroud or whatever on it. they got down to $56 at the nike outlet but they were just too ugly for me to even entertain.

https://m.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/kobe-ad-nxt-mens-basketball-shoe/pid-11391478/pgid-11562580

It's got some type of thing over the tongue that you pull to tighten it, rather than laces. Supposedly creates a great fit and the traction is right. Definitely an ugly shoe, and at $200 I didn't consider copping retail. I'd possibly go for it if I come across it at an outlet at some point.

They got another Kobe AD dropping today. I don't know why you'd put out two different shoes with the same exact name within a year(as well as the AD NXT). Maybe they know that first AD was a misstep and are trying to basically make it forgotten?

Though the guy working there told me that was unusual for them to still be there. Something about them getting audited. First time I've ever seen a colorway that I liked in a store, so I grabbed them. I would imagine they'll start getting easier to just walk into a store and pick up like that as they've been out for a few years. Don't know though.

lately i have gorged on them because they hit the 50% rack, plus i get an additional 20% back (weird foreign tax thing). they end up being about $90, though some colors were like $5 more. in the states the prices are still pretty high but you see them at decent buys on eBay and more colors are available for sure. i say go uncaged, especially if you're not actually wearing them for running.

which should be either this year or next.

13's i'm not sure i feel like white/cherry ones dropped or will soon release.

but def wait for those black cements if you're eyeing a 3.

the good thing about oldheads who want Jays now is most of them are sitting in stores not selling out right away.

I do want to see what other colorways actually are released. The pure platinum is sure to be out, but I'd like something with some more contract like above.

257. "did you? i am sooo underwhelmed"
In response to Reply # 227


  

          

been looking forward to these for two years and despite the initial hype i found a pair at the outlet for $120. i went half a size up to 11.5 (usually I am 11, sometimes 10.5), something i found myself doing with nike runners lately (also went up half a size for the Zoom Fly). The fit is odd, the stability is non-existent, the cushioning is much firmer than expected (but with little structure) and I can't imagine they would last very long on the road. At the price point I'd way rather have a pair of Mizuno Wave Prophecy or even the ritzier New Balances (which I don't think they make anymore). I'd even take some Gel Kinseis over these. The Flyknit max I liked a lot, very squishy and cushy, which you'd expect from these. Better use of Flyknit on these--really forms to the foot, especially with that sock--but the sole is a big ass loser to me. This and the Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 were both huge disappointments to me.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

275. "Didn't cop yet"
In response to Reply # 257


  

          

Biggest reason is they didn't have a colorway I liked enough to spend $190 on yet (or $230+ on NikeID). I can wait

In response to Reply # 275


  

          

some are passable and i like the solid color look but overall they have not had any that moved me. i got the first ones that dropped just because they were cheaper, flipped em and pocketed a hundo for something else.

298. "I'm good waiting. It's more the look than anything"
In response to Reply # 281


  

          

There's little chance I'd do any actual running in them, and have no idea whether I'd even like the combination of the Flyknit and all air pockets under feet (haven't been in a huge rush to try on a pair in store). If I could have found the triple black on release day, I probably would have copped that day, but my internal buzz has died down a bit, especially since I got the blacked out LD-Zeros.

I have to assume Nike will use the Air setup with a few different uppers in due time as they get their processing and tooling up to speed. I'd like to see what they do and can wait until then, unless I can snag a pair now at a better price (or they drop, say, an Infared colorway now)

330. "yeah as more colors drop more will hit the outlets"
In response to Reply # 298


  

          

i think an all team red (burgundy like) would look nice. the olive ones with the strap were OK. wasn't a big fan of those ugly ass teal/tan mids though
