The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Apart from Adidas Kick and Puma  trainers (not forgetting the ubiquitous black PE plimsole or Dunlop green flash) in the late 70's/early 80's, the only notable trainers l can remember were 2 pairs of Adidas, would've been 1998/99/early 2000 at the latest. Can't remember the model names but one pair were a dusky suede like green with 3 thick white stripes and the other, less interesting pair, were grey with no notable features.

Also, as Maynard has pointed out, l had some Converse 'Skath' star (not 'Skate') in around 1998/9, but despite research they do not exist, although similar Skate star models do - but nothing exacting mine. Looked for them over the years but nothing.

Some pics. Managed to find the box to the light green adidas; made in china so...?  Here is also a pic of the grey ones (rocked with some vintage Lee's). The only pic of the Skath star's  worn with 1970's Levis cords and velour pocket tee (that's my mum btw).

Got some new Vans today, inspired by my friend Rob (raw.denim.ocd), who has a similar pair. Collaboration with FDMTL. Wild but fun, like the socks which don’t match, I know.

I got these Adidas hender schemes ZX500RM a while back but didn’t end wearing them all that often. Now that I’m in shorts half the year at least, they’ve been worn a lot more. Nice seeing the leather starting to darken and look less pink haha

I have the sk8 lows of these but the amount of indigo on them makes it hard to wear it anything I typically wear. I do like them a lot... great looking shoes

Always wanted a pair of jordan 1 Chicago's but no chance I was ever gonna pay reseller prices ( the whole reseller thing disgusts me ) . I love the concept of the Donny's , being a reproduction of a bootleg jordan 1 ( there based on the pro jogg jordan bootlegs )
