Want to Wear: 032c Adidas — GSG 9, Boot #KickofTheMonth #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

I know little about 032c so that deserves a separate blog. As it’s known in my early 20’s boots and shoes were a big deal, crep Boots now they are priceless to me and these GSG 9’s are flawless.

032c done one a superb job with these in my humble opinion, it’s so crafty Techie and super desirable for the Lehman who doesn’t know design shoes or boots but wants one anyway.

This is another grey boot made to my taste the way the colour allows for you to really take in the detailing is a pleasure on the eyes.

I believe the midsole is adiprene I have no clue about the functionality of the upper and it’s waterproof self but nothing crep protect won’t fix. I was late on the drop but up on 032c now waiting for another one of their offerings with Adidas.

Joerg Koch very own utilitarian take of street style and shapes gives me good vibes and this industrial sneaker revolution is and will be a feast. We’re ready for this guy.

Want to Wear: Who needs a Plug? I need a plug #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

I love creps since I was a little one and got my first aid forces, I remember walk-in on the road with my bros in our fresh huaraches and those cherished moments doing the dash in a new pair of creps before buying them, conversely doing the duck walk in order to not crease the patent leather.

In my earlier years I was known even as too hard to buy for because I know what I like and I like it pricy, which got me the name ‘designer designer’. One I wear with honour now because I honour the artists that make what I wear and the masterful craftsmanship at play.

However in this day and age I had no idea I would be writing blogs, and articles for sneakers and quite frankly I don’t want to buy every pair. But I would love to be able to review everything properly and for that I need to wear them.

In comes my need to borrow pairs for a day or lease them to get a feel of them to really inspect the sole tooling and stitch work Among other things you can’t see in images.

If there is anyone out there stylist or buyer or dead-stockist, retailer, seller or archivist or someone with a job title I don’t know yet, if you find my articles enjoyable please lend me pairs of new drops I find pleasing so I can write better articles. You will 100% be named if you want and your store or website promoted because the love needs to be shared

These are going to be a new style of blog though, want to wear creps that are good enough to put on feet stay tuned.

Nike remodel their FREErun Flyknit 5.0 Trainer with Updated Tech

We go again,

Has Nike been bungling it the whole time? Why is it just now that Nike is using Barefoot technology? What has changed in the Nike Running devision?

I am not an insider, I’m just someone who loves tech and sneakers. Some of the first tech in sneakers was Frampton Ellis Barefoot technology, we have known for decades the flat footed way block soles hit the ground are not good for walking or running, let alone sports.

What is Barefoot Technology?

It is the tech that stops you rolling your food and simulates expanded foot plant while in impact with the ground. It can bee found famously in the Yohji Yamamoto BYW and the Yeezy 500 the obvious change is the midsole is bubble shaped these balls minimise the points of impact, taking stress off the foot and stops it from rolling and you twisting or breaking your ankles as is know to happen with tennis & basketball shoes during lateral movements in the time before this was invented

So what changed?

It’s my guess that Adidas had exclusivities to the patent that ran out or Nike saw me talk about how Adidas Technology is leagues above Nike. Let’s go with a mixture of the two, the main reason I love Adidas is because of their technological innovations/ their r&d department I love how they synthesise plastic into better more comfortable polymer blocks.

Whatever deal was struck has put Nike in a better position with geeks likeness and runners alike.

What does it mean that Nike Has Barefoot Technology

It seems as though Nike is throwing their hat into the race by introducing their Running sneaker to the barefoot technology —been a long time coming— basically admitting for years now their sole technology for their running shoes have not been up to scratch but right now the use of Barefoot tech puts their foot forward in an attempt to encapsulate Sport and Culture.

These new FREErun 5 (one of my favourite Nike moulds) talk the talk and run the run. I haven’t seen them in real life but I could spot Barefoot a mile away and with the culture of running getting bigger and as people become more scientific Nike will need the Best tech in their footwear possible; from their top notch breathable fabric to barefoot technology in pretty much all of their running trainers.

Nike seems to be going for a retrofit rollout as to mitigate them not looking like it’s a new 21st century marvel so geeks like me don’t call them out their ad really seems to be calling to the wannabe scientific but also easing the public into the look of the sneaker which I must say is a big departure from their block and trapezium soles.

I’m looking forward to seeing how they utilise all sorts of other technology not just this one.
