A Thought On: Storytelling in the CLOT X Terracotta Jordan 13s REVIEW – The Power of Stories and the quality of creativity

We go again,

Just saw these, thought they were amazing and deeped the concept and just loved it design application aside this is a real good concept with storytelling in pictures giving off a quality feel. If the oldest recorded history had sneakers they’d wear Jordan’s ūüėāūüėā, I’m literally laughing.

But that’s joy, me when I was 8-15 the history buff that I was this would have added to my story of where I am now. – In design, telling great stories; creating exceptional product – my 12 year old self would have loved the socks off of this Jordan, would have inevitably be the Jordan that would be my first.

Why do I say all of this because I’m my mo sneakers no stories I spoke greatly about the lack of stories and how that impacts the sale of sneakers, telling great stories (like songs) induces great ideas in young minds worthy of exploring. Once more the quality of the product almost comes secondary to the story told and association it holds. I’m in love with ancient history and things told before records were kept, have been enamoured with it for decades. Me as a kid who loved the Mummy films and knew much about the terracotta warriors would be immediately taken at 8 and now in my 20’s. Why? Because the weight of the association it holds is heavy and if in any form I can be part of that story I will.

This is a call to great designers and storytellers to work hand in hand on briefs to create product that speak to the imagination of the youth and adults. I right now am digging deep to find an outfit worthy of rocking the Terracotta 13’s all because of the story and nary because of the design.

All I want for Christmas is Jawns- Things you should get for Christmas

We go again,

Christmas is almost over and for those of us that saved up our Christmas gifts money to stunt on the rest of our alma mater post January sales the first day of school almost among us. It is an especially fun time. Everyone else that beg your parents for funds do what you must, we’ve all been there. All should know we must all come correct on the first day.

Here are a couple things that can make you look exclusive.

That football top

Not just any football (soccer) top. THE football top. All the new kits are in and ’tis the season for Football fits. Right after the World Cup. There’s a team with that colour way. That just looks so fresh no one is thinking of. But is pure silk, ain’t no one thinking about it right now but they will be when you rock it ‘is that the new [redacted] kit’ is what you’re finna have people saying. Looking fine like silk. The fits are epic and there’s a treasure trove out there ready for the picking. If you can find them. No I can’t give you hints. It’s purely by taste and by style and if you are really rocking it ‘is that you yeah‘ will be all you’re gonna be hearing come September.

Big ass Bomber/ Borg or Fur

I’m truly enjoying this new style now where fur/ cotton is in style and people are openly rocking the warmest of fuzzies oversized and otherwise keeping themselves warm and looking stylish at the same time. It adds a different element to what you’d see on the commute and accentuates a certain type of style people are trying to pull off and I’m all for it.

Anything bespoke denim

There’s always a time for denim but distressed is always in and it’s not going away. Biker is phasing out but all the fits that are worthwhile and Japanese right now is really the time to look for those Ksubis. A Jacket or jeans acid wash or paint splatter embroider straps strips and stripes other wise can wrap a look and have you styling on everyone.

Is that those the classic Js your rocking

Yes super simple super worth it and always in. The era for new Jordan’s may be over but the quality on the shelf Jordans will forever thrive. A clean colour-way will always being a look or two or many from anyone who is anyone.

You got to be able to put these together yourself. This list in itself is a Fye fit that can have you looking like silk. Nothing is beyond your bounds be brave, look your bank account in the face and let it know this is important. Set the tone for the rest of your year. Start as you intend to finish. Feel good and do good work.
