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

Want to Wear: AirMax React 270 — Summit White #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We Go Again,

MAILING LIST

I shared my side eye at the 270 from my first glance, I couldn’t deal with the marketing and reposting flooding my screen, however I loved all the Collabs with the 270, the ISPA 270 particularly as well as the 270 utility as we all know I love functionality or things that look functional

png-image-4.pngThese summit white reacts with 270 bubble they look ridiculously beautiful, I genuinely want a pair, not only are 270’s super comfortable but the React foam is also so the combination along with the summit white with blue accents tear me up inside because I genuinely need them.

Whoever done this combination and creative/art direction deserves an award of some sort because everything makes sense from the detailing in the embossed sole to the grooves in the upper.

I am ready

Want to wear: Fear of God — Raid, light bone #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

EByJ_RFW4AASCfL.jpgThese creps are so hard to me I didn’t really warm up to the moccasins or the shoot around or the ones but these mids, the raids, are the highlight of the collection the cross strap I see these FOG pieces as one for the wardrobe in multiple colourways.ECy1Y3aX4AMSSCW.jpg

Right now these are my favourite 180’s next to Yoons Ambush AirMax 180 which is also fire. These though, the layering of the straps over the laces which whip all the way round the back as well as the pull cord on the laces it add a much needed texture that I like to see in trainers.

ECy1Y20W4AEJj67.jpgThe clean canvas colourways of the Bone grey already has me seeing variations we will never see with this trainer but I would love to bring to life. A pastel yellow strap that would pop right off the canvas or a black toe cap to match the Swoosh would be elegant.

Want to Wear: Nike Joyride — Kick of the Month #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

This is such a hyper sneaker and it deserves more love and I will be the one to give it to it.

EB0KddrWsAArSfo.jpgEBygQwcWwAAiX0D.jpg

The Nike joyrides is Nike new technology offering they have been teasing this for a little minute now and I’d love to own and see these in real life for us to behold.

EB0KdeaWkAAw-lL.jpg

It’s running tech is said to quell impact and form to whatever shape you need. In the case of podiatry there has been big talk of how trainers don’t do much for the ankles and misshape the foot, that being said these may be Nike’s answer to that.

EBygQvTWsAIc1oQ.jpg

An impact neutralising running shoe that doubles as a freeform cushion that doesn’t mould to the foot but has a give and take effect that helps with running. We have to wait and see.

EB0KddcWkAARAoL.jpg

That being said this trainer is lovely and colourful with the contrast colours you can do a lot with this Joyride tech. It seems the emphasis is all on the tred and the sole.

 

The OG upper is a simple quality running mesh, when you get deeper in the Joyride there’s so many styles of upper they are really putting so much behind it in terms of variable style compatibility and complimentary colour-ways what a wow.

I would really love to see these in real life.

Want to Wear: Nike X Sacai blazers and LDV Waffle #PrimeNYT

bless up from your feet to your head top.

We go Again,

ECBGDnOXsAA8CrM.jpgPNG image 4.png

I have adored these trainers for so long that nothing has changed. They might be my personal favourite for Sneaker of the year that’s the LDV Waffle.

What a trainer inspiring me to break the formal silhouette, genuinely in my design inspiration for soles have broke the normal silhouette but not confidently this LDV Waffle is the magnet that said yes I am this I love it, if not just for the brazen silhouette alone.

Then came the Blazer running with texture and layering cross colours and contrasting in such a magnificent way. It didn’t need to break the silhouette this time because the detailing was just so superb.

I knew little of Sacai before the collab now they have me thinking and wanting to know more. I hope this isn’t a one time thing and if it is I’m very grateful to have witnessed both pair.

Want to Wear: Nike Signal D/MS/ X model #KickofTheMonth #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

I seen these and immediately had an eyegasm. The silhouette caught my eye like a glimmer of futurism and anime chique whoever at Nike designed these come from the same school of thought as I because they done it all right.

n110-d-ms-shoe-Kz4Mgl.jpghttps---hypebeast.com-image-2019-08-nike-dmsx-signal-pack-coming-soon-002.jpg

These are truly one for the feet not just a feast for the eyes but a feast for the feet. If my eyes aren’t failing me it’s using zoom tech for the midsole so that is the comfort one checked off the list for now.

nike-DMSX-Flyknit-Yarn-Release-Date-AT5405_001-6.jpgNike-Signal-DMSX-White-AT5053-100-Release-Date-1.jpg

The Zoom has different textures and pallet patterns but the same glorious silhouette, from flyknit to padded and mesh. Giving us everything, these are really one where if I am able to examine them all I can give you a better description but for now the images will have to do

Nike-Signal-DMSX-AT5303-003-Release-Date-4.jpgEB_vWbTX4AA_bJS.jpg

I am not a massive fan of a curved toe but for this it goes off, the exposed front part of the tred showing off a black wavy groove with points of impact on the toe ball and the heel. With a high arch Center separating both parts.

Telling me this is a running trainer this is Zoom tech and I will be pleased to grace these on my feet.

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.
