The Nike Flyknit trainer. This shoe is going to get played out through my summer rotation for sure. I love the black and volt colorway Nike does on it’s shoes. This pair is the best use of that colorway so far. Neither color over powers the other. and the white swoosh seal the deal for me. I can’t complement this shoe design enough. It is superior in support, breath-ability and style. Nike hit a home run with this design. And while I have no plans on actually using these to train I will continue to sport them. I hope Nike can lower the price point for these, because if they do I will use them to train in. Get a pair if you can, you won’t be disappointed.

Sometimes Nike pulls through on the enough pairs for everyone idea. Most of the time it’s a sprint to the checkout to get the sneakers you want. Luckily this time I was able to pull off this purchase without a problem. I was pretty stocked to see the preview of these shoes and had to have them. I normally don’t do running trainers, but these majestic beast of beauty were calling to me. Like a sweet mating call from the female hyena. And I answered it.
I give to you the Nike Flyknit trainer. I scooped up two pairs of these. The shoes’ upper is all knitted fiber. Technology is growing everyday in the sneaker world. These shoes are super comfortable and super light. I was able to wear these without any socks and had no problems with sweating or chaffing. One my best sneakers purchases in quite a while. These are most definitely neck breakers for sure. I keep getting asked where I bought them, I only say the internet. If you want a pair do your own god-damned homework. I will post the rest of my rotation later, now it’s time for a nap.

Dude this Kansas triple digit heat is killing me. Boots all day for work. My feet are all sweaty and stinky. It;s pretty gross to be honest. So on the weekends I aim for a lighter option.
Today I sported the Air Max 90 current. I very much favor this shoe in the summer heat. Pretty much all mesh. So the heat releases and the wind can come through. The best part is the FREE sole on it. Making this shoe even more comfortable than the original AM90. I also love the fact that these badboys can not crease along the toe. I hate when that happens. I got the Infrared color way of this shoe. I tried to get some more, but Nike has a tendency to release a shoe and than make it disappear with a quickness. NIKE is the FOX of the sneaker industry.
Either way it’s a great shoe to own. Try to find yourself a pair, if you need help I’ll be glad to assist anyone.
P.S. I’m thinking about doing a video version of What I rocked today. Please let me know your thoughts.

New Balances. I was slow to the brand. I always associated them with the neutral grey palate and old people. Than I got to see the European and Asian versions of them. And I was sold. I much prefer the Asian exclusives of New Balance. I purchased these from Japan. It’s a pain in the ass trying to use google to translate Japanese to English and trying to type in card information. Holy Shit. It took me a week to find a place that would ship to America. These are the NB 564′s. They are pretty bad-ass. Nice colors, smooth build. the only problem is I am American and these shoes are made for Asians. So my big ass foot flops over the side of the shoe. Screw it. I love them so much I got a brown pair as well. Diversify your wardrobe my friends. Start with your feet. They carry your burdens. Treat them to something nice.

Parra Air Maxim 1. One of the most under rated shoes in quite a few years in my opinion. These are very comfortable. Super light. The colors of the laces are perfection when tied into the basic color scheme of the shoe. And I guess it’s a plus that Parra happens to make his own t-shirts that go with these color schemes. I still don’t understand why these flew under the radar, but it made it easier for me to get them.

Holy moly. I’m not one to call people ugly at all. But Holy tap dancing jesus de christo. When two people of these amazingly “unique features” get together for a picture…….it’s like M.C. Escher smoked PCP, took a shit on canvas, added a lil bit of glitter and called it finished. And why does Wale always look like he is about to fall backwards when throwing up the deuce? I feel like pulling him back by his t-shirt. Anthony seriously looks like a stretched out muppet. Don’t get me started on the people in the right of the background. MAN………………………………………..

There are some things that should never see the light of day. These sneakers are one of them.

I believe I can fly. WHOOOOOO. Not really, but it feels good to sing it out loud. You ever done that? Just bust out into song? I have and I am pretty damn good at it.
Today I rocked the Air Jordan 11 Space Jams. These shoes were made Magic Mike specifically for the movie Space Jam. I believe they have only retroed these once. I could be wrong. I am to damn lazy to research that tidbit of information. The only Jordan models I like are the 11′s, 7′s, and 16′s. I know it seems an odd choice,but fuck you, you are not me and I like what I like. I love the patent leather on the shoe. That fact that it’s wrapped around the shoe and not o the toebox area is awesome. Patent creases hella crazy on sneakers. I love the ice soles( or what used to be iced soles, more piss yellow now.). The sports mesh upper makes these comfortable to synch down if needed.
I had a hell of a time getting these. I was stationed in JBAD Afghanistan during the release. I tried my ass off to get these off the internet. The shoe gods would not allow the internet to be used. So I called my moms(she is such an awesome lady, I love her so much.) and told her when and where to buy these. When I got home ten months later. BAM! There they were. I think I sniffed those shoes for like an hour. Yup that’s how I got my Space Jams, moms looking out for her son.

Very cool idea happening here. Functional art with two purposes. What time is it? I feel like wearing my 10′s today. Very fucking cool. If you know your kicks than I won’t even have to explain why the Jordan are in that order.
