Nike Apple Watch

really happy with the watch and the 24/7 monitoring it does and you can control your music remotely.  i’ve been really impressed with the tracking during exercise and at the gym.  really impressed with this wearable technology.

New Kicks | For the Gym

Just picked up some shoes with some online Black Friday shopping in Nova Scotia online from  Two little pairs for the gym.  Just basic light weight Nikes.  Little did I know that Chantal was in Ontario when I was in Nova Scotia buying these and she bought the same pair but in a different colour.  Great minds think the same. 😉

While I was at it… picked up some ugly J’s.  Kind of ugly.  These are just little shoes for the gym also.  Can’t beat $49 dollar size 13 J’s that have little things from the 1988 model.


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.

Falling In Love In Six Acts


In the summer of 1993… Nike had this pull out in women’s magazines.  This one was in Vanity Fair and I was reading it in Karen’s room and I remember I ripped out the pages.  I remember many women loved this spread.  I’m always an ekin.  It’s one of the most effective ads geared towards women.  It was a 12 page ad… which was wild.

At the bottom is a man reading it all in the YouTube vid.







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


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.
