let's talk about old/weird(?) sneakers

Recommended Posts

^air killers really nice. can't afford atm. seem to recall seeing sz 2s and 3s on ebay; running upwards of $600us 

also coming up from dbss f/w 13 is what looks like a slightly lower version of the standard hi-top. only seen in lookbook so far but here it is (on right and left looks)

I'm feeling those! translates well into a midtop imo, bit of a chunky jordan vibe. that whole look on the far right is pretty dope.

Yeah that fluorescent accent is the only thing that prompted me to post them. There are a few other variations in the new line up including a studded version but I think the one above is the best. I just find the overall build of dbss to be a little lackluster and these new ones appear to be even lesser quality than their predecessors although it's hard to gauge for sure based on pics... Still want the Killers though x_x

I wish the top moved into a more technical direction too. Had my old RO resoled anyway so don't really need more hi tops.

Saw them on Yahoo Japan on my bi-daily Junya search. Still no AW11 stuff in my size at decent prices :(

Act quick if you want them (size 9)

Those Junya's are nice. Not sure if they fit into either the "old" or "weird" category but they are definitely one of the best flight jacket inspired sneakers I've seen. Someone needs to make a flight jacket based sneaker using goretex and waterproof zips etc.

^agree with you there. converse japan came out with flight jacket highs recently. cigar pockets, i think they were called? not bad imho.

indeed they did. air trainer huarache 94s i think. always liked; very similar to air carnivores.

not really weird per se but margiela's come out with a meh GAT hi top, as has nonnative

^finally someone else who posted tallacs! i'm waiting for the ideal moment to kawp a pair. customs will murder me regardless of what i do/where i get them from so proxying probably better than ebay.

someone selling these a half size too small. would actually be tempted to jump on but he's asking for about 50% more than is reasonable

dem whites so nice but cannot justify 

so who wants a cordura pump fury? dunno what the point is but they're okay. maybe cut off weirdly placed cordura tag.

also really glad to see this is back (and monotone for once)

still prefer this as it's more akin to an acg vibe.

there is mid top version but not as good and some fukboi somewhere called them an "acg roshe" so i am not amused

^somehow i don't like the mid as much. hardware additions up top feel more like an attempt to make it feel more off-road/hiker-y than it looks. other angles/closer photos would help but we'll have to wait x_x 

these would be so-so in a subdued colornike-air-shark-trainer-02-570x394.jpg

also some fila stuff. branding holds weird el cheapo connotation but it was apparently luxury sportswear territory back in the day
