I tried something new

I tried wearing a button down short sleeved top. I don’t do this. It’s not my thing. But for the sake of trying something different, what the heck.

It felt nice and fresh to try something I wasn’t used to. In my opinion, the outfit looked great.

I was actually inpired by one of Mikyle Quizon‘s OOTDs and decided to just try it out (and do a rip-off version of it hahaha) and see how it goes.

Have you tried something new and different? Whether it be a small feat like with what I did here, or a big one, try stepping out of your comfort zone.

Make it POP

“Fanny on me” – Perea Street (2018)

I was finally able to cop a pair of these trousers! I’ve been wanting to get these but most of the time they didn’t have my size or they just simply didn’t have the pants.

I decided to pair it with a plain white shirt and my Adidas Superstar for that classic vibe; and since it was a bit plain, I decided to add my new yellow fanny pack (from OXGN) to make it, like what the title says, POP.

Even without the bag, the fit still looks classy and has this old school feel to it, but the fanny pack adds this extra character to it to make it a little bit less dull.

What do you guys think? Lemme know down there!

2018 SNEAKER PICKUPS

BLESSED.

This year, the Shoe God has been great to me. I want to share with you guys every single pair that I copped this year.

  • 1.) First up, the Maz Brasil in the Red and White colorway.
  • 2.) NEW BALANCE 373 in the Red/White colorway
  • 3.) Nike Flyknit Trainer 2017 ‘Sunset Tint’ colorway

  • 4.) Vans Old Skool “NUDE”

    5.) BATA X STAR WARS limited edition collab (stormtrooper tennis shoes variant)

    6.) Nike DUNKS low X MLB Oakland A’s ‘Baseball Pack’

    7.) Nike Air Presto in the Black/White colorway

    8.) Adidas ZX Flux X Italia Independent ‘Core Navy’

    9.) Chuck Taylor All-Stars in the Blue/White colorway

    10.) Nike Air More Uptempo in the White/Gumsole colorway

    11.) Adidas Pureboost 2017 in the White colorway

    12.) Air Max 98 SE Team Red colorway

    13.) Jordan Legacy 312 ‘Rookie of the Year’ colorway

    If you’re wondering, yes, I have used all these. I have worn each and every one of them for a substantial amount of time. I know I have a lot of pairs, and I tend to use the new ones a lot more coz why not, but I still love using my older and more broken in pairs.

    Out of all of these, I’d have to say the Air Max would have to be my most favourite cop, so far. I’ve always wanted a pair of those and now I got one.

    I might lie low from the sneaker scene this coming year, I don’t know yet. I also said that last year and look at where that got me. I never thought I’d have this much shoes in my life. Too much sauce this year (which depends on whether you like my taste in shoes or not. I really don’t care tbh).

    Lastly, one more thing I really got to learn this year is that, never ever go with the hype unless you truly want it. Never let anyone try to even persuade you not to get that one sneaker you want just because it isn’t their style. Cop it. Buy it. Trade for it. As my good friend once said, DO YOU.

    And with that, what were your 2018 sneaker cops? Lemme know down below! Top 5 sneaker rotation for last year in the next post! See ya!

    BOOST

    Boost for days.

    I’ve tried different cushioning setups. I’ve had some good ones. I’ve had some bad ones. But none of them as comfortable as Boost. Don’t get me wrong, some of you might prefer the Bounce cushioning (also by Adidas), some of you might prefer Zoom, Air (by Nike), or plainly a different setup.

    I have tried Boost on my D-Rose 5 (semi full length/ can’t fully feel it that much), and my John Wall 2s (heel part only), but nothing compared to when I tried using the Pure Boost 2017 with it’s full length Boost setup.

    I copped the white colorway coz it’s so clean and hella sick.

    Nothing fancy. Plain and simple.

    You can see the arch support on the inner side of the pair.

    The upper is made of circular knit. It’s a bit stiffer than Primeknit or Flyknit but, it’s still soft compared to most materials out there on other pairs.

    On the inside, there’s an internal heel padding for added comfort. There’s also those things on the outside which are for external heel ventilation (which I think acts like a TPU heel counter as well).

    As you can see, there is no insole. That’s just a thin layer of fabric inside so that you could feel the cushioning better.

    The Lacing was inspired by the Yeezy 350 and 750.

    IS IT WORTH IT?

    100% YES.

    Hands down the most comfortable pair I’ve ever had.

    PRICE:

    PHP 6,500/ USD 122

    (I got this at a discounted price of PHP 3,900/ USD 73)

    Even if it wasn’t on sale, the regular price isn’t as bad as it sounds when it comes to sneakers these days.

    Slept on

    Don’t you just hate it when there’s this certain model of sneakers that you just absolutely love and yet everyone’s just sleeping and passing on them? Those to me are the, ZX Flux, from Adidas.

    The design is very simple, nothing too extravagant or flashy. Just a pair of plain rubber shoes that are hella comfy. Just a plain heel support at the back, the Adidas logo on the tongue, and the iconic three stripes on the sides.

    I love this pair. This is actually my second pair because I had already retired the first one. I really want this pair hyped up coz for me its a great addition to your daily sneaker rotation. There are tons of other designs out there for this model if you don’t fancy this one.

    What are your fave kicks that are slept on? Lemme know below! Also! On my next post, you guys will find out what pair of shoes is my fave of all time.

    HONG KONG OOTDs

    I kept it chill.

    Decided to whip up some comfy sets of clothes for each day of our stay in Hong Kong (if you were wondering, yes I made a checklist of what I was supposed to wear per day).

    DAY 1:

    SET 1:

    I wanted to go a bit retro with the colors.

    (No pic of me wearing this fit coz I forgot to take one, unfortunately)

    DAY 2:

    SET 2:

    • R2-D2 Tee (Folded & Hung)
    • Track Pants (Penshoppe)
    • Star Wars Socks (Iconic Socks)
    • Adidas Superstars

    I had to wear a Disney related shirt. Only right coz we were at Disneyland.

    DAY 3:

    SET 3:

    • Calle Ropa Tee
    • Gray Sweatshorts
    • White Socks
    • Adidas Superstars

    It was shopping day. It had to be something simple and comfortable.

    DAY 4:

    SET 4:

    • Striped Tee (Aeropostale)
    • Sweatpants
    • Nike Air Presto
    • Retro Reebok Jacket (optional)

    I wanted to relax on the trip back to Manila. Sweatpants and a loose shirt was the way to go. The jacket was optional.

    Here’s something to remember: Dunks and Superstars are not very good partners when it comes to long walks. Choose something lightweight and has a comfortable cushioning system (I only chose these because I had no problem with them getting dirty).
