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

Recommended Posts

Here's an old-school shot from back in '88 I think, I cannot remember what the shoes I was wearing but would like them again.

 

I think they may have been Rivalry Lows but someone here might be able to shed the light, ( stripes were gold by the way ). I think Dom was wearing Nike Air Assault - cannot be overly sure though, getting old you see!

^naice. they've been popping up on various places online; tempted to cop as well but i'll wait and see if local nikes get em. last i tried on AF1s they looked like clown shoes so i'd rather have a chance to fit

also i think these are cool

I went up half from my New Balance size. Length and width are spot on, but my foot still slides around a bit, due to the wider heel cup and the slippery neoprene. Dunno if it's something about these specifically or Nike in general which I'm not used to.

 

Love the old school hiking/climbing colorways, but I don't think they're working for me. Might try out the Air Tech Huarache's instead for that retro outdoors vibe; they seem to be shaped more to my liking.

^actually i meant to ask you if you were willing to take fitpics or something. would like to see worn if you have the time to spare

edit:
scratch that i've found fitpics but it's all with jogger pants go figure

i imagined the inner boot to generally jut out just a fair bit more, sadly.

I'm probably about half your height, but I can snap a pic later on. Pretty sure I'm gonna return. Not used to the bulk and flat sole. Thought I'd like the AF1 since my toe spread is really wide, but NB just feels better all around.

nb was a function brand first and foremost, nike is all fashion. their shoes are unwearable as fuck (as comfy as some are).

A lot of the sneakerboots could qualify but this was certainly the oddest.

 

I dig the black ones

definitely like the look, but I don't think the feel is right

half size down would kill my toes

yeah I thought they'd be closer to mid-tops too

that might have balanced them out for me

yeah I originally ordered them just to test fit and then get the sands, but I'm into the colors

bit the bullet and wore them out, now that the sole has flexed a bit they feel fine

gonna gig in em tonight

 

this thread has made me super picky about sneakers
