The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a good place to proxy Converse Addict from? The new FW release looks good and they make them in an 11.5 which should work.

Haven’t bought sneakers in more than a decade&half. That said, ‘thought I’d impulse buy a pair from a “local” store that peeked my interest ... as a token/souvenir;)

I’m a sneaker collector and I know the Air More Uptempo 96’ doesn’t even sit well within the sneaker head circle but I had to add these to the collection.. Tear me up SuFu fam.

These are for a very specific crowd :D when you hit a certain number of shoes you start to buy crazier stuff :biggrin:

Whoa whered you get these?!

I first spotted them many years ago on this very forum knucks (although they do appear in old sneaker editions of Boon) occasional poster Kemedia Club sometimes swings by with pearls of wisdom re- Levin Scheme, Deer Hunters ect and he had a pair.  I eventually tracked down the white and brown pairs when a Yahoo seller listed about 30 pairs of deadstock, i found the black pair some months later.

From what i can gather.. manufacture shifted from the US to Korea around 2000 and according to forum member Blackadder 'Buckwheat had been making pumps in the US since the 40's, bought out by a Japanese company sometime around 2002 when they were stocked by Beams for a short period' 

Ive never actually seen the versions which are made in Asia but i stopped hunting when i found all 3 colourways,
