Diggin In The Sneaker Crates

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: Diesel Don’t Make Running Sneakers

 

(wow, really?)

This actually happened… it was over 5 years ago but it still happened. Deal with it.

As seen first on Ad Rant


Diggin In The Sneaker Crates: MajorDC x Reebok Pump 25

reebok-pump-major-dc-1

Ohhhh man I like these! ok ok ok I know my current waredrobe wouldn’t allow for such a brightly colored sneaker such as this… sky blue with stars on it? I would have a hard time working this.

But I still like it. There is just something about it.

Here are the details from SneakerNews.com about the kicks

This year marks 25 years of Reebok Pump technology. And while the focal point has been on the vector brand’s Insta Pump Fury with nearly too many collaborations to count, it’s nice to see that the original Reebok Pump will be getting some shine in a new collaboration with Major DC. In earlier previews we saw the vibrant blue sneaker light up with gold accents, but today we get our first full look at the silhouette. Set for a release date on September 13th, the metallic gold accented pair looks to be fairly limited

Since these came out in 2014, the only way you could get them is if you went to an auction site like eBay or something.


Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – THE OLIBERTE GUNSMOKE ADIBO

THE OLIBERTE GUNSMOKE ADIBO BY RONNIE FIEG

(they don’t look comfortable but damn they look good)

Told y’all I was gonna make up for not following what Mr Fieg has been doing all this time. I got to really open those crates for real cause he got some juicy grown man ish on there.

DETAILS:

The feel and hand to this leather is perfect, its soft yet rugged and adding a nice leather lining helps keep the construction of the upper sturdy. The condensed crepe soles are a bit different from what we are used to seeing and matches nicely with the rest of the shoe. To really understand what this shoe is all about you must feel them in person, the craftsmanship is flawless and they really make for a unique pair in your closet. Priced at $110, a limited run of 48 pairs will be available this Friday December 17th 10am Est. at the David Z


Now BEFORE YOU START ASKING ME about how you can get them, just read the detail… but if your a little lazy, well then I’m writing this for you… the sneaker WAS on sale a while ago. You might find it on eBay if you are lucky.

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – RALPH LAUREN THE BURNT RED RANGER

POLO RALPH LAUREN FOOTWEAR – THE BURNT RED RANGER BY RONNIE FIEG

(causal and smooth)

Another creation from a guy who knows his footwear and what materials to use to make it happen. Nothing really more to say other than its a good look.

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – Clarks Saddle Collection Dessert Boot

 

CLARKS ORIGINALS SADDLE COLLECTION BY RONNIE FIEG | DESERT BOOTS

(put them on my feet NOW)

Clarks is one of the classic looks that has somehow managed to stay on the scene even as other companies have come and go. Now, or should I say back whn this came out, it gets the Ronnie Fieg ook.

Here are the details:

It’s been amazing for me to see Clarks stay extremely relevant for 15 years, one of the very few “brown shoe” companies to do so. When working with the Desert Boot, It was important for me to stay true to what Clarks Originals is all about, just added a classic finish and colors to the timeless classic. Priced at $95, all three colors will be available this Friday November 19th at the David Z. flagship


The price seems to be always right when it comes to these kicks. If you got them when they came out, you re the lucky and the few.

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – Cultureshoq x Ronnie Fieg

THE SEBAGO NEXUS PROJECT – CULTURESHOQ X RONNIE FIEG | A CLOSER LOOK

(wow)

Another pair of hot as fire shoes from the man himself. Is it art or is it footwear? And the pictures he take are fantastic!!!

Details from the blog:

For the fourth installment of the Sebago Nexus Project, CultureShoq.com and I present two new styles that I’ve been excited about since we went to Dominican Republic early this year. Priced at $140USD and limited to 48 pairs per style, the DT lug sole comes in a premium crazy horse brown leather with a removable kilt and leather laces, and the DT High is comprised of oily chestnut suede with a removable kilt/tassels. You can purchase these boots tomorrow Friday October 29th at 10am EST at the David Z flagship store as well as online at Davidz.com. Shots by@Sqmunro

Since this went on sale way back in October, I am guessing that they are gone now. Only 48 pairs makes them pretty exclusive and no question these things are works of art.

Diggin In The Sneaker Crates: Ronnie Fieg

(total heat from Ronnie Fieg)

I made a mistake. I should have been following what Ronnie Fieg has
been doing way more than I was. Hell, I should be wearing a pair of
his designs right now. I made this statement on Twitter and I stand
by it: if your top ten or 20 kicks/shoes of 2010 don’t include
Ronnie Fieg, then something is wrong with your list So to make up
for my error I will be focusing on Ronnie Fieg in my “digging in
the sneaker crates” series this month way more often then I would
normally focus on anyone or any particular brand. So don’t get mad
at me if for the rest of the month you see Ronnie all over the
place.


Air Max 360 Rejuvine8 – Preview Shots

(man, these things reflect)

For me, these kicks at the time I got them, are the second most comfortable sneaker I had ever worn (at that time, the top comfortable sneaker I had ever worn was the Reebok DMX 10) . They were light and pretty flexible.

And reflective…

Maybe that put people off, because they were hyper reflective, maybe because they were a nice bright green, or maybe it was the history of air printed on the sides of the sneaker.

One way or another, these kicks ended up on sale, and I bought them for 79.99 at Dr Jays many years ago. I guess, in some ways, that is what other people are doing today with the Air Max 2009 and that is the 160 price was too high, but once it went down to 129-139, all of a sudden, they were everywhere.

But once you put them on and wear them, you see why they are worth 160 and are more willing to buy it at that price too. Already did that once, and will be doing it again this weekend (getting those Air Attack 2010 in black/neon)

Plan on seeing a review of these kicks, more pics, and so forth once the site opens up. Just diggin in those sneaker crates…


Nike Shox USA… USA… USA…

(now these are some old kicks)

I don’t even remember when I got them, that is how old they are. And because I haven’t worn them in years, when I actually put them on a few days ago (to go work out… which I ended up not doing), they did some weird squeaking and just felt like someone scratching a chalkboard without the chalkboard.

While I don’t plan on doing a full review of these kicks, I do have a preview 2 minute video of the sneakers coming your way as well as some pics.

Man, I am digging in those crate boy… for real, I think I got some sneaker and shoes that I think deserve to get some shine.
