The Life and Culture of Kicks

On Sale

On Sale: adidas Rose 4.0

[gonna get these and play ball in them]

Nothing to say (until I get them and do a test run). I like the way they look. Some of my friends think it’s hideous but I like them. There is just something about how the design works makes me think they will look great on my feet.

Not a fan of the duo-tone though… most of the colorways are duotone. Probably why it’s either these or the all black ones that will be the most popular (until they come up with more colorways)

[they actually look nice… but they still funny looking]

Got nothing to say about these. They for the pro athlete. No hype beasts here standing on line for them and re-asking them for $400 bucks.

On Sale: Nike Air Max 95 DYN FW – Men’s – on Eastbay

[green rainbow for sale]

Ok so it’s time for me to get posting again. It’s my mission in life to tell people who I don’t know that a pair of kicks are on sale. Usually they are a pair I like and I think should get attention.

Then there are other times… This is those other times.

Don’t like the way these look at all BUT they are still Air Max’s (the most comfortable sneaker ever) and they are $60 bucks off.

So that turns these “green rainbow” looking kicks into good looking kicks.

You getting them?

On Sale: ANDROID HOMME Craft Hi @REVOLVEclothing

(high end… at a cost)

Its Dior Homme not Dior Homie… now where did I get THAT from? Anyway here is a smooth sneaker for the more mature individual who wants something casual, stylish and is still a sneaker.

No it doesn’t have air in it… and I have no idea how comfortable it is but it does look pretty good. At the price it better, at least, be the smoothest leather.

On Sale: Y-3 – HONJA High Metal @Luisaviaroma

(this is an interesting looking sneaker)

Is this something you think you would want? Collect maybe? it’s a Y-3 so why wouldn’t you at least give it a try?

LOL there are probably LOTS of reason why you won’t give it a try. Who am I trying to kid here?

On Sale: The Melissa + Gaetano Pesce Customizable Shoe @Karmaloop

(ummmm… weird but cool)

Well take my legs and call me stumpy! I wasn’t aware that a shoe like this could be made and yet here it is on Karmaloop.

Here are the details including what this thing called MELFLEX is:

Bubble patterned bootie; can be customized by cutting out circles to achieve desired silhouette.

Melissa Shoes are made from MELFLEX, a trademarked plastic which offers improved elasticity, impermeability, and resistance to water. It is also hypoallergenic, odorless, and recyclable.

Its gonna set you back a 120 bucks so if you want to pick them up at Karmaloop (right HERE). You will look original wearing these, that is of no doubt. They also have other color such as black (for those who don’t want THAT much attention) and red (for those who want to get jumped if they are in the “wrong hood”).


On Sale: The Low Level Light Up Danger Wedge @Karmaloop

Very interesting no? I am not a fan of lights in a pair of footwear but this actually seems to be an ok look. Now I am not saying they would make a great Christmas present, but hey

Head over to KARMALOOP right HERE if you want to get these for yourself or your lady.


Selfridges – Worlds Largest Shoe Department Store Opens

(old news but hey, its still worth noting)

Looks like the ladies get all the attention. If only guys can have something like this… but would guys even go if there was one?

So anyway, the store is open, and has been open for s while. Check out the quote from Lifestyle @ Yahoo:

Measuring approximately 35,000 sq ft, the department is the largest project Selfridges has ever undertaken. It contains six salons and 11 boutiques or ‘themed apartments’ that have been uniquely crafted to reflect each brand – Chanel’s is a reflection of Coco Chanel’s apartment in Paris, while Jimmy Choo’s is adorned with hand-painted gold foil wallpaper.

Europe has all the fun I guess.


On Sale: Converse Chuck Taylor Hi Roll Down at Finishline

(not your average Converse)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ladies you in luck if you want a casual kick that represents classic while doing a litle something for your “future look”.

I mean a super hi-top that rolls down isn’t new, but its looks new enough here. Its for that fresh look when everybody else has the same thing on.

On sale ONLY online at Finishline, so check them out HERE.


Super Sale: Mega Softcell BHM at Finishline

(man, I spent too much time making that collage)

Wanting to try on a pair of kicks that actually look like they have some kick to them? Then give these a try. It’s a little odd looking if you ask me but they do have some kind of air of strength and would probably look good on a small foot (12′ + may look like boats).

Reguardless of my more interesting opinions, the big news is that you can get them at $30 bucks off.

Those other colorways seem yucky though (and there ARE some really interesting colorways)… oh well, you can’t go wrong with $64.99
