At Neiman Marcus: Maison Margiela Future Translucent High-Top

Maison Margiela Future Translucent High-Top

Is this what is next for sneakers? It like a love hate situation for me: I like that they are doing something different, while I don’t like plastic all over my sneakers and the price wow). Its def a fashion sneaker due to the fact that there is nothing to speak of in the way of technology. So if you are wearing these is can say that your fashion forward all the while saying that you got 1000+ dollars to spend to show how fashion forward you are.

Details:

  • Maison Margiela “Future” high-top sneaker in translucent polyurethane.
  • 1″ heel.
  • Approx. 5″H shaft.
  • Round toe.
  • Split vamp with padded grip-strap.
  • Dyed-to-match rubber outsole for traction.
  • Maison Margiela signature white stitched label detail on heel counter.
  • Made in Italy.

Made in Italy? For some reason I really like that part.

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)

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?

about that Sneaker/Shoes project yet… It’s ok you will

Jordan CMFT Air Max 12 “South Beach”… man South Beach getting allot of love

(interesting)

So this is starting to get serious. I am beginning to think the whole Miami Vice look will actually come before 2011 ends (and I wouldn’t put it past somebody to try to do it either).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The sneaker actually looks kinda nice. I would get it if I thought I could rock a sneaker with neon pink in it. I mean “I can see you from down the block” neon pink. Anyway, there are rockable no question, I’m just saying be careful cause they may hurt the eyes of people looking LOL

This is one of the really nice colorways for the CMFT line. I hope Brand Jordan keeps up with the good colorways and leaves the more plain colorways out of the mix.

No release date yet. First seen on Nicekick.com

 


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

Kim Kardashian and Skechers… time to Shape Up that butt

(Kardashian x Skechers… omg)

Ok, seriously????? LMAO (no pun intended if you caught the connection) why did they do this? Don’t know if this was a good move, but make no mistake, work out sneakers are in right now and Skechers Shape Ups is somewhere on the top.

And yes, I know people who wear these (even BOOT versions) and swears by them.

Do they work? I don’t know and I am NOT going to find out personally by wearing them either.

The price isn’t too bad though if you are into these and on top of that, some of them have nice colorways. You want take a look at these, click RIGHT HERE for them.

Jerremy Scott loves wings: adidas originals FIRE

(this guy REALLY loves wings)

I have to admit that the wings seem a little bit on the extra side of things but he does make them look good. This time he is using the black and orange colorway for that “I’m moving so fast, that I must have wings on my feet AND the wings are on fire” look

I guess that explains “Fire” being in the name of the sneaker.

Little tid-bits about the shoe:
Was Patrick Ewing signature kick back in he 20th century (1986 to be exact) originally called the Attitude

Currently this is now looked as an skate sneaker… Get it? Skating – motorcycle – good looking model? Well the pics still look good.

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…
