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: 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.

Here we are again with another boot, I dig it, really and truly dig these boots, none other by Ann Demeulemeester, her fabrication and materialism is up there and so is her construction so although there’s just one image I have of these I can see already these are just so well designed and for me.

The 13 eyelet for toecap to tongue is an aesthetic I’ve never really bought into till now, there’s something about the finish that’s really catching me.

The industrial look all maximal and useful not the most functional but accessible and contained, along with the straps to really tie it all together if laces aren’t your thing that day

All in the grey I love so much there’s something about this grey that’s giving off real concrete vibes it has an extra layer of texture to it you don’t necessarily see but are quality.

Definitely one for the archives on purchase
