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!

    LAYERING

    I know. We’re in the Philippines and it’s too hot to layer or even think about layering.

    That’s why I layered in the evening during one of our dinner outs with the fam.

    CLOTHES:

    • Denim Jacket (generic brand)

    • Maroon hoodie (H&M)

    • Long tee (generic brand)

    • Black Slim fit/Skinny pants (generic brand)

    • Plain white socks

    • New Balance 373

    Since I didnt have a denim jacket with a hoodie, I decided on layering with a separate hoodie instead. It was quite heavy and a bit warmer than I would’ve liked but it looked great in my personal opinion.

    the dark tones of the outfit makes the shoes stand out even more (which is really important to me. If the shoes don’t pop, it doesn’t work).

    Ya’ll know how this works already. Hit me up below!

    NEW BALANCE 373

    My first pair of NB’s.

    Once I saw this on Capital’s online website, I knew I had to have it (plus the fact it was on sale).

    As you guys know, I love the color red. I also love shoes. Put those together and it’s a match made in heaven.

    Red body + White lining + White Midsole = PERFECTION

    It’s simple yet it stands out.

    The materials used on this pair are mesh and suede.

    I actually switched up the red laces to white laces to make the colors pop even more.

    Pair these with shorts, jeans, or anything at all and you’re good to go.
