Yo kuya, I was more active in the gen pop sneaker game when gravis was boomin 4 the jap market. Have u handled gravis irl? This is gravis jawns, no? HF totally endorsed/promoted (that's his livelihood) the fuck outta them to the point of no return. If gravis had just controlled their numbers and had a tighter distro maybe the market wouldn't have over saturated. But it was a young age. You'll notice hyped shit is obviously much more limited in terms of unit numbers and sales door. Anyway gravis were a part of footwear history as far as the jap market and the re sell game goes. We can learn/ surmise alot from the gravis era. Edited by SSchadenfreude

i remember trying a pair of gravis' on as a teenager in a skate store, i think i ended up buying globe's instead - would have been around 1999. ironically in australia at the time they were always seen as a sort of lower tier brand in comparison to globe, vans, dc etc.

i've been finding some info out about the gravis and their strength in the jap market. have seen photo of HF in them as well (think posted on p 26?) and i think it's really interesting. stuff from an age when I didn't care about clothes or what but i kind of wish i did. really like the design that went into a lot of the jawnz, feels like progenitor dna for a lot of the ugly sneaker perpetuation nowadays, somehow. 

i used to think gravis was just another skate brand or what but i saw a photo of a guy in a pair of rivals (these same ones i think) + lots of UC and i got really curious; thought it looked great. i actually have a pair of factors (essentially low top version of these + diff sole). found in okay condition at thrift shop (lol) and have since been using. built like comfy tanks but the glue/sole separation is a problem, just reglued all pinoy style. but really good stuff. kind of wish they could have kept on developing but their presence seems to be quiet or gone altogether. not sure. >_> 

on flipside i think these are cool

even gaudy colors are cool

like them less from this angle (something about the nose)

but still cool though, one of the more interesting results to come out of an adidas collab

cross posting this i think.  still sorta wanna kop, but the brand sucks, and i don't know if the sole would look alright if i removed the label on the heel.  shit these still come out in this, black and grey.

i remember these! used to want a pair but when i was living in thailand the adidas slvr store never got em. just the weird lace up things from the same season with the winged collar:

and in the least appealing color of the three, no less

^i reiterate; i like the monkey boot look. outdoor referential very appealing to me; ACG derivative.

i don't think i've ever seen zip front 95s before. look really good. how many years on those now?

debating between the oc adidases or these 
IMG_0042_1024x1024.jpg?v=1381234401
one of chief concerns is the longevity of the sole unit on these + i take a lot of shitty public transport in manila at horrible times; feel like i'll look moneyed and mug-worthy in bw campers
or maybe just overjustifying that i feel like i don't deserve a pair yet (wardrobe also taken into consideration)
i hate deadlocks, lol 

that aside these are p cool imho
