OLD SOLE, NEW TRICKS: XL

OSNT40

 
Aloha all,
Today's OSNT features the last part of the "Hoopin' and Sneakers" video interview series... I know it was long, but I really wanted to emphasize that there's importance in knowing what you're wearing... Whether you like shoes for their technical aspects, history, etc., all self-titled 'sneaker enthusiasts' should have a basic knowledge of what they're enthused about, right?! haha. Anyhow, I've been noticing a plethora of new running sneaker consumers bandwagoning the market lately... Just a few words: As long as you grow genuine, I won't be upset at you making my chances harder at getting releases I want. lol. Besides all the good runners dropping, I feel JB is starting to mellow out a bit due to their willingness to over-saturate a ridiculously stretched market. Are we soon approaching the end of a full circle? SB love slowly reviving? ...We shall see!
P.S. - To the very few of you who repeatedly stumble upon these OSNT posts for a midweek kick, I'd love to hear all your ideas / criticism / thoughts, or even see cool photos pertaining to sneakers... OSNT has been a fun and interesting learning experience thus far and I will never shy away from growing its enjoyability for all of you... jared@fittedhawaii.com Cheers!

OLD SOLE, NEW TRICKS: XXXIX

OSNT39

 
Aloha all,
Hope the week is treating all of you well! A lot of good drops recently... My personal hunt list for the week includes the Nike SB Dunk High "Chairman Bao," Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel-Lyte V "Mints" and "Coves," and possibly a couple Jordan 9 "Birmingham Barons" and Supreme x Nike Foams for the stash if I ain't gotta work too hard for em... haha. Last week was also pretty heavy for me as the Nice Kicks x NB1600 "Grand Anse" and the Premier x Saucony Shadow 6000 "Life on Mars" Pack dropped... Thanks to my buddy, I was also able to finally pick up a Nike Pegasus 83/30 Blue Hero, which I so regrettably passed upon release. Also, looking at a few Made in UK NB1500's and the 577's from the "Seaside" Pack... PHEWWW! PUKA POCKET!!!
Anyhow, scroll below to watch Part Two of the OSNT "Hoopin' & Sneakers" Interview with my homies, the Asian Dream Team! lol. Enjoy!
PS - Yo Based Fob,
Don't tell me your boy got played on a Nike SB April Fools tip..?!?! MEGA PAUSE, B. I need that "Chairman Bao" Human Panda hook-up! Thanks, B!
