We all remember it, our very first pair of sneakers that we actively searched for. Now we’ve all at one point gotten those kicks as a baby or a toddler that our parents got us because they looked so cute, but there comes a time in every sneaker head’s life in which we go out and look for a pair for ourselves. For some the first pair is like their unicorn. For some their first pair is easily attainable. For me however my first unicorn was a pair of Bred (Black and Red) Retro Jordan 1’s. They were one of the first sneakers that completely changed the face of what sneaker culture could be. With Jordan’s birthday coming up on Sunday my post today is in a way in parallel to this but more to the release of the Black/Blue Retro 1’s coming this friday. They of course will be argued to the end of time that they look like a pair of Dunks.
That may be the case but in the hearts of every sneaker head they are the book of Genesis to those who know about the time before the sneaker game died. This colorway will allow more freedom in what you can match with. Limited heel drag and toe drag being non-existent, the only thing that anyone who cops these is that little white string that and white mid section that seems to get dirty oh so easily. These are a guaranteed hit for anyone loves the sneaker game or of course those soulless resellers.
Now that I got the Sports post out of the way its now time its time to indulge in my guilty pleasure, sneakers. I love sneakers, I will admit it, I’m a full blown sneakerhead. I can’t help it, its truly something I care about. Problem is, I go to college and like many other college kids, I have little time and even less money to get them, at least for now. With winter here and almost done its looking like that time of the year where I going to have to indulge in my guilty pleasure again and start buying them. Time to start reviewing a couple of kicks in the mean time though.
The Fighter Jet Foamposites, these kicks are a thing of innovation, what started out as a sample, which like most samples were destined to either end up in the garbage, Wale’s feet, or on the shelves. The last two did end up being the case. These kicks are going to be released this Saturday much to the relief of sneakerheads everywhere, who were promised the kicks on the first day of the year. The wait however is over. Like all foams they are made to run a half size too small, also be prepared to cop these kicks and not wear for a little bit. With the weather being what it is and the snow, rain, sleet, and salt being every where these look like their staying in the box for a little while. Overall these have to be a must buy.
Then of course we have the next pair of Jordan’s to get a retro colorway. The retro J’s I speak of are the Squadron Blue 13’s which are a all blue colorway with electric yellow accents on the bottom. This colorway hasn’t been seen in quite some time. This fresh edition to the Jordan game is a welcome edition, considering Spring is about to rear its head and the first thing that any sneaker head wants to do is get a blue pair of kicks that match just about anything to have as a foundation for the rest of their sneaker game. These I wouldn’t cop these kicks because 13’s were just never my thing. Don’t let me stop you all though I had a pair of 13’s last year and they are worth whatever you spend on them. Just don’t buy from a reseller, the sneaker game is dead enough. Next week I’ll be checking out two pairs of kicks that are coming out next week, or whatever I decide, that’s one of the luxuries of having a blog being yours.
