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

Recommended Posts

Fila ! - that whole phenomena was a UK Casual movement thing along with the likes of Kappa, Sergio Tacchini, Lyle & Scott, hell even Lois jumbo cords.

I guess most on here are waaaay too young to remember but I was part of that whole thing back in the early 80's!!

 

I did like some of the Fila's - ( had a pair ) those White Mountaineering are hideous - like something you would be made to wear recovering from some foot operation in hospital !!

sandal discussions i think will always revert to those two pairs of WMs, somehow i like the first pair a lot more tho! that orthopedic vibe really does it for me x_x

old-ish (i think) kva

would love either white or light grey pair

yeah, im really tempted to cop the first pair of WMs. they come in all black too.

 

those less but better sandals are sick!

 

i've been thinking about getting a pair of air deschutz for a while. also, i've always wanted a pair of vis christos lol....

 

 

off sandals, i really want a pair of black UC zip sneakers

Sophnet x acg's on another level. Good catch.

And are those vibram soles on the suicokes? Never seen them before. Pretty clunky/awesome

yep, all the suicoke sandals are on vibram christy sole units. think the ripple soles are vibram as well. good stuff.

Imagine it to be the lovechild of the Presto and those bulky Adidas slippers from the 90s.

 

Still strangely attractive though, I don't know why.

Brand new but a little bit weird, thinking of copping for my winter sneaks/mid-performance boot. Love both color ways though. Puma Mihara Yasuhiro MY-68

Whenever I was searching for old Adidas, I would always inevitably be led to the Found nyc forums which leads me to believe that a lot of the old casual dudes moved onto techwear 

 

Shit was all Adidas and Stone Island

Lanvin trainers, not sure if they've been posted before, but they're definitely weird; especially in this colorway, looks like granite on the middle there.

willhelm campers popped up on hypebeast, apparently these are a collab with opening ceremony
opening-ceremony-berhnard-willhelm-campe
although i don't see how OC is relevant as the dinosaur print just feels like throwback willhelm. not that anyone on hypebeast seems to know, sadly.

Thought those were pretty cool, I might end up buying a pair. I love stupid prints like that.
