Boxy

Nothing special.

I meant about this post.

I just wanted to show you guys what I recently got at Bench this past weekend and how you could turn this simple piece into something less boring. They had this buy 1 take 1 promo, and I got a plain black boxy tee and a plain gray pocket tee for PHP 599 or USD 11.40.

It’s a simple outfit.

While the color of the shoes makes the outfit look less boring and dull, it also gives a bit more character to it, the shirt also gives a more rugged and laid back feel along with the track pants. The fanny pack is there to accessorise the overall fit.

  • You guys can also switch up the color of your shoe if haven’t got any red sneakers. Any color will do with an all black outfit.

If you were to ask me about all black outfits, i’d just say it’s the way to go. It’s subtle yet it gives out a strong vibe as well. Not everyone would agree with me but personally, I could wear black every single day.

What do you guys think? Any suggestions on what I should write about next? I have a few in mind but I’d appreciate any ideas you have up your sleeves. Comment them down below and I’ll see you on the next post!

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).

    Comment what you think below and I’ll see you 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.

    HONG KONG PHOTO DIARY

    This was from our HK trip last June. No paragraphs or too much writing, just photos from our short vacation.

    This was actually me and my sister’s first out of the country trip.

    • The food was great. Who doesn’t love Chinese food?
    • Trying to communicate with the locals was a bit challenging but manageable.
    • Disneyland was amazing (I literally cried the entire time out of pure joy).
    • Shack Shack was the bomb.
    • I was also able to try Ikea‘s Swedish Meatballs. Overrated. It wasn’t overwhelming. Just whelming.
    • Using the train was hella fun and easy. Commuting in HK was really something else.

    Check out the pics below!

    My first trip out of the country was memorable. The experience was great. Was it tiring? YES. Was it worth it? HELL YES. Would I do it again? Is that even a question, DEFINITELY.

    I also made a previous post on the OOTD’s that I used during this trip, click here if you wanna check that out.

    See you guys on the next post!

    Every sneakerhead will tell you that you need this in your collection

    Well, most sneakerheads.

    Simple. Timeless. Iconic. Classic.

    Words that best describe the, AIR JORDAN 1.

    I have to agree when they say that you need this in your collection. Others might say the opposite and pass on the pair.

    I used to literally stick to Converse and nothing else. I wasn’t that much into shoes back then, that was until my uncle bought me a pair of AJ1’s. That literally kickstarted my love for shoes. My J’s aren’t retro’s or OG’s, just a simple “AJ1 high strap” model.

    You can literally wear it with almost anything. Shorts. Jeans. Dress it up or down. You can’t go wrong with it.

    If you’re really serious into getting into the sneaker game, get a pair of Jordan’s.

    Lemme ask you. What’s that one pair every sneakerhead should have in their collection? Let me know in the comments section below.

    That one pair you always need in your collection

    Everyone has a type of shoe that they need in their rotation/collection. It’s that one pair that has to be there or your set isn’t complete.

    For me, it has to be the Chuck Taylor All Stars from Converse.

    It’s that one pair (or three) I always need to have no matter what.

    You can literally use it for any occasion. Dress it up or dress it down, it really doesn’t matter.

    I’m not even going to edit how my shoes look. I love it even more when my Chuck Taylor’s start to look dirty and worn out.

    The dirtier it gets, the more character it has. Even the box is dirty and I don’t care I care, actually.

    I clean them every now and then, and you guys should as well with any of your sneakers, but I’m not as O.C. with them as I am with my other shoes.

    Among the three pairs that I have, I really love the white Chucks, but this has got to be my grail, the Greenday X Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars (separate post on them soon).

    What I want to know now, what’s that ONE PAIR that you’ve gotta have in your collection no matter what? Lemm know by sounding off in the comments section down below! See you on the next post!

    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.
