these were released in 1995.  created by Tinker Hatfield and he wanted to use materials not used in any basketball shoes.  in 1995 they retailed for $124.99 back in the day.  in 2000, i picked them up for two hundred bones.  when money started the season after coming back at the end of the 95 playoffs, the bulls went 72-10 with J in the 11’s.  J won the championship on Father’s Day one year after his father was taken from him.  this shoe was his comeback shoe and sealed his second three-peat.

Nike HyperFuse Supreme | Orange | 2012 | Coming Back Out

Bought these in 2012 and played a whack outside back then and have not worn them since.  I put them away for the future.  I’m going to start wearing them again on the courts and at the gym.  Love how light they are.  Picked up size 14 for these ones.

Going to really step up my “hoops” game and get ready for the summer outdoor season.

Nike ACG Aqua Sock | I’ve Owned These For Twenty Seven Years!

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

EST. 1989

Designed by Geoff Hollister, the Aqua Sock was about as simple as a shoe could get – a slip-on sock with a thin rubber outsole. That was it.  They were meant for water sports (no, not that kind, perv) but also were an early vanguard of the minimalist movement.

My goodness… almost 30 years.  This summer marks the twenty seventh year with these exact shoes!  I’ve worn them on my 16km hike at Silent Lake with no issues.  I’ve worn them when I decided to ride my mountain bike from Peterborough to Ajax.   They came with me to Nova Scotia and had a dip in the Atlantic Ocean this past summer shown above.

I’ve even played basketball in them.

They were bought to be slippers around the house.  They are ugly and I love them.

My daughter laughs at me and makes fun of them.  I think she is jealous.

They are the perfect camping shoe.  I promise they will make it to 30 years!

Shoe Porn | Flyknit Trainer

An all-terrain vehicle if ever there was one, the Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB Sage.

The shoe’s solid-olive upper offers a classic fashion aesthetic, but the tech specs are pure function through and through. The upper’s Flyknit construction and Flywire reinforcement deliver a light, yet breathable fit, while wool integrated in the knit and a water-repellent finish make this the perfect winter shoe — all the more so thanks to the any-surface traction of the Special Field Boot sole unit.

The Flyknit technology is pretty cool and it’s wild with what they are starting to do with the design of the shoes coming on the market.

Shoe Porn | Roshe Run Sneaker Boot | Ekin

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Nike has moved into Sneakboots and they have created one for the popular Roche Run.  This premium edition of the winter-reinforced Roshe receives a brown leather water-resistant upper with reflective detailing and a grey-speckled Natural Motion sole unit. Meanwhile, Hyper Crimson accents add a pop of color to the heel and tongue tabs.

Back in 2012, Nike Sportswear introduced the world to the Nike Roshe Run. Simplicity was key in the creation of the Roshe silhouette, and the concept of Zen was the source of inspiration. The name stems from the word “Roshi,” which is a title given to a Zen master.

Below is a brown leather version that’s not my first pick… but wanted to share the style.   I like the black version at the bottom that is a bit better.  To view my Shoe Porn List you can view it here.
