SB50 Nike Trainer 1 mid PRM QS NFL

You can say that I am obsessed with mid 1 trainers, always have always will, reminders of my youth always flashback in my mind. This pair of Superbowl 50 Trainers brings some texture to the eyes like no other. All gold tons of gold. and I decided to do something different with this photo, I like how the details turned out.

Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid 'Chlorophyll

Never did I imagine that in the year 2013 I would be buying mid Trainer 1's, silhouette that I adored as a kid/teen. This is one sneaker that I hope Nike will make available in various colorways for decades to come. This pair happened to get dropped off by the mailman the other day #Salute (yes, I'm hashtagging on my blog haha)

United We Sole \\ TLK \\ 09.15.13

 Toronto Loves Kicks presented another chapter of Toronto's own Sneaker Battle United We Sole on Sunday Sept 15. Bringing back sneaker enthusiasts as well as entertaining new comers. Reuniting in the Great Hall, where the atmosphere was low lit, pumping with DJ Channel 9's hard hitting beats and sneaker lovers in every part of the 30K square foot venue. Throne Barbers were on sight fading & lining up customers, art displays were being shown & raffled, vendors promoting apparel and kids walking around with shoes in their hands looking to sell/trade was in full mass. As for the sneaker battle itself, individuals/crews brought their collections of kix, displayed for all to see & judge. Contestants brought out for show everything from original sneakers from way back in the day, to some of the hottest footwear being released to date. Of course judging a sneaker battle is all in good fun, it's about personal preference and what each individual likes.

Surprisingly also was the good amount of female sneaker enthusiasts on scene, which is great to see, the ladies have a fantastic shoe game, they rocked them on foot and displayed them as well *cough cough (@bevy_bevv

A special presentation from @SelfMadeSince89 to the TLK crew, custom pair of Jordan X's, which were designed with the city of Toronto in mind, city map/architectural structures  and nicknames were hand burned into the leather of the silhouette, salmon colored accents flow through out the shoe.

Bringing the day to a close, some on stage performances were conducted, beat boxing showcase, local artists dropping lyrical madness and of course the announcement of the sneaker battles winner! Which for the second year in a row went to the 'SneakerMisfits !!! Congrats!

#TorontoGotSole & #CanadaGotSole was represented in the best way! This was def not the typical low key event that we have seen in the past.

I was humbly ecstatic to see familiar faces as well as meeting folks that I have talked to via social media but never had the chance to chat face 2 face, of course meeting new people with the same passion was really nice.  

Please click the image below, it will take you to the full gallery, cheers & enjoy some of my captures!

Nike Kobe 8 System \\ Easter

Here is my other pair that I scooped up while on vacay, the Easter Kobe 8! showed these to wifey at Exclucity, all she said was 'love'em! how could I not buy'em haha! and with 40% off. That's simply called #TeamUnderRetail  

As for the picture, well, I haven't had a chance to set up my mini studio in quite some time, this was the perfect occasion to do so! Change things up a bit.

Waiting for me in MTL courtesy of my pal Chris via Exclucity was this purple giant pair of Kobe 8 System Gradients. Man I've fallen for this shoe, just can't believe how the Kobe line keeps getting more and more comfortable. Since I already had them on hand, while at the cottage I snapped a few pics.

If you seen my post last night via instagram, floating in water wearing some sneakers. Well those sneakers are\were my "like the title says ^ .

Scooped my pair up on release day, and since day one they have been the most worn shoe I own, for the first year anyways haha!  It's my do all, no limits to where I step, Just a great daily beat down shoe. & this year I believe that it was time to part with these smelly water shoes. & so I did, left them behind at the cottage. Could I have kept them, given them a quick clean up......nah! They did their job.

So long 'Infrareds  !!! 'Such a random post

Nike Zoom Kobe VIII System \\ Red Boa

Having owned quite a few Kobes signature line of sneakers, I have gotten accustomed to wearing a very comfortable performing shoe, no matter which version it was. My favorite that got me started on the Kobe line was the Zoom Kobe IV. Than when the V released I was truly in heaven with fit and feel on foot. The design of the VI wasn't as eye appealing however, and I only have 2 pairs of those, the comfort/support level is still there, but IMO the look of the VI with the large scales was not something that pulled me in. Kobes seventh signature shoe was a much improved in the design aspect, just as comfortable as the VI, perhaps even better. Same thing though, it wasn't a shoe like the IV or V which I pretty much bought ever colorway that released. Now we come to the Eight model and let me tell you, this is a beautiful shoe, from top to bottom, fit, comfort, breath-ability etc...I had a chance to try a pair on when the VIII released, but to really get to wear a pair is something truly amazing. Looks like Nike scored again.

Maui steps...

Real happy that the sun rays are back, hot temperatures couldn't have come sooner...I miss taking shots of sneakers. Especially with something other than my iphone, which is so great by the way haha. So it was time to check the stacks and see what hasn't seen any day light yet.

Nike Trainer 1 Mid

Right side of my brain always says 'you don't blog enough, while the left side stays focused on the daily tasks that are driven daily. It's really a no win situation, quality over quantity is the way I look at it.  Cold weather keeps me inside, but this past weekend I did manage to unDS my Trainer 1 Mid, I just couldn't keep that buttery brown leather pair sitting in the box any longer.

Ready for summer

Seeing all this warm winter weather makes me want to burst into my shoe boxes and bring out all those flavorful summer color ways. But not yet, I can't. That much melting snow would do a number on these fresh brights. Slushy/rainy forecast deserves regular rotation shoes. Looks like a few more weeks before the brightness comes out. Like these Lunar Flow+, I decided to have some fun with these today, studio style. Ready for summer, yes they are, & so am I.
