Want to Wear: Nigel Sylvester Jordan 1

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

These Jordan’s are possibly my favourite collaboration to be released since the classic colour-ways.

Looking at Nigel Sylvester a normal righteous guy who rides BMX and became a beacon for not only people in New York and his home borough but a beacon for black boys everywhere not wanting to do the same sports route and go into extreme sports. Along with that, possibly being the best to have played the sport.

His role is key legacy cemented now sneaker memorialised the times of greatness. That is his Jordan 1.

What else could one have asked for.

These need to be on my feet.

The unrefined unfinished look is the best I’ve seen of this type, saying ‘don’t be afraid to get me messed up’. Just knowing you can base out these trainers make them worthwhile.

This is what I mean by creps telling a story because those strategic scuff marks are not unlike the ones you would get from riding a BMX, it’s the little things that make the difference.

Want to Wear: Nike Zoom Moc in Bright ceramic

Bless up from your feet to your head top.

We go Again,

the bright ceramic was one that was brought to my attention through great imagery. And colour I really just love this bright ceramic colour-way and on the Nike React Langa too.

It’s black with a pop of colour to accent the upper. That’s really the right way to get my attention then I peep the detailing the reconstruction layering and the finishing.

Then the midsole and what it takes to make one like this is a simple shoe maximising the pop Details, the right way. To some it can seem ugly to me just right.nike_zoom_moc_1071557_1141.jpg

There’s all new trainers coming out of Nike and Adidas and I’m here for the good ones, back to good designs at reasonable price ranges the collab culture isn’t done but it’s no longer out of control to the point they aren’t releasing anything else. It’s really the right way to do something.

I’m enjoying the accessible footwear drops

Want to Wear: Virgil brings back the LV Don

Bless up from your feet to your head top.

We go Again,

Virgil brings back the Louis Vuitton Don. After a long period without these sneakers I have enjoyed this one coming back.

Not much to be said about it that everyone who knows about trainers shouldn’t know already. My thoughts are it’s a trainers trainer and one of those rare designs that inspires other designs or someone to be a designer. It’s that deep.

Vuitton wasn’t giving anyone a collab when this first came out and now it’s the house to collab with being supreme or RIMOWA. If there was anyone to bring it back it’s 100% was going to be Virgil, Kanyes partner and older Virgil is the guy who replicates boosts and promotes nostalgia and liveability.

Bringing a new type of buyer into play and not just the average players. The younger crowd is in and they need a trainer. This is it.
