Circa 98

I can join Airmax day already, that’s for sure.

I can honestly say that this pair is definitely up there at the top of my most wanted Air Max list. My most wanted would have to be the Air Max 97, followed by this, the Air Max 98. The list would be something like this,

  1. Air Max 97
  2. Air Max 98
  3. Air Max 1
  4. Air Max 270
  5. Air Max 95
  • On to the main attraction!
  • PHP 5,900 or USD 112.30

    I got this pair at the Sneakpeek Shangri-La branch because one, they had a sale going on, and two, the all red colorway just got me. I saw it and it just spoke to me. They also had the 97’s as well but not in any colorway that I liked. This was also the last pair they had. Like literally. In my size. Can you believe that?

    • Double stitched mesh upper
    • 3M white lining going around the entire shoe separating the mesh from the mid suede part
    • Synthetic leather mud guard
    • Stitched Air writing at the heel
    • Orange suede oval on the medial side of the pair
    • Full length Air-Sole cushioning set up

    I honestly think and feel like it would’ve been better to have added an extra set of white laces. Either way, red is red. I’m a hugesucker for red shoes or anything that’s red.

    It is definitely more comfortable than the Jordan Legacy 312, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air More Uptempo, and surprisingly, the Nike Flyknit Trainer 2017 (which I think is the most comfortable after breaking it in). Not much break in is required. It’s fairly soft and plush in a way once you put it on.

    I know it’s not a widely popular pair, and I don’t care. I love it. People not wanting it means I can stand out more knowing I have something that’s out of the ordinary.

  • Overall, it’s a dope shoe. I’ts sturdy. It’s light on the feet. Decent ventilation. It’s comfy. I’d still suggest copping this even at SRP (around PHP 8,0009,000 or USD 152.28171.33).
  • All black outfit to make the sneakers pop

    Here’s a sample OOTD (which will be on my next post).

    Legacy

    This ain’t from the Don C pack if you were wondering.

    As homage to his hometown, Chicago City, Don C named it the Legacy 312, after the city’s area code (312).

    Details:

    • The upper is from the “Air Jordan 1” model
    • Midsole-outsole is from the “Air Jordan 3” model
      The strap is from the “Air Alpha Force Low” model
      This model isn’t from the “Don C” pack but from the newer colorways

    I knew I wouldn’t be able to cop the Jordan 1 “Rookie of the Year” due to it being eyed by almost all sneakerheads, so I copped the next best thing; The Jordan Legacy 312 “Rookie of the Year”.

    Got this at Titan Shangri-La for 7,300 PHP (around 140 USD). No, it wasn’t on sale but it wasn’t that expensive compared to how they price shoes today.
    The brown parts of the shoe are made of suede, while the white parts are made of leather.

    The body of the shoe, the nylon tongue, and the iconic Air Jordan wings logo are from the Jordan 1 model.

    Lace holes, heel tab, and midsole/outsole are from the Jordan 3.

  • Strap is from the Air Alpha Force Low.
  • I will update this post once I’ve worn it enough to break it in just to see if it’s comfortable.

    It’s a solid shoe. The design is great. The feel is awesome (based on trying it out). Price isn’t that bad. While others are hating on the strap, I actually love it, it makes it more unique.

    When there are pros, cons come hand in hand with it. This isn’t for everybody. It’s a really bulky shoe. It’s on the heavy side. I’m pretty sure it’s going to take a long time to break this in.

    Overall, while it may not be for everyone, it is still a damn good pair at a fairly decent price point. For those wanting this pair, cop it while you can. For those who aren’t fans of these kicks, you aren’t missing out on a lot.
    I have one more new pair that I copped the same time I got these shoes, but that’s for a different post.
