KYRIE 3 X DAME 3

SHOE REVIEWS ARE BACK.

BATTLE OF THE POINT GUARDS EDITION.

After not being able to post any reviews of shoes due to not being able to get new ones earlier, I’m back with TWO new reviews! Yep, TWO NEW SHOES.

Thanks to Titan Circuit Makati (click there to see all the products they have on sale) and their very accommodating staff, I was able to cop the KYRIE 3 “White Chrome” and the DAME 3 “USA

I have yet to try these bad boys out but as soon as I can, imma update you guys.

Follow me on Instagram so you can see if I’ve posted on my stories about my initial thoughts on the shoes (@ralphdreyfus).

For the meantime, I’m gonna put up my initial thought reviews on each of these guys till I put up my actual performance reviews.

VANS 50th ANNIVERSARY STICKER PACK

Damn. They look so good. 

My first ever Vans and I got this bad boy. 

My parents bought this in Europe a while back during their trip there. As far as I know, you won’t be able to find this pair for sale here in the Philippines unless it’s from resellers. 

The box is a bit worn out but it’s just your typical Vans box. Nothing too special.

The toe box and heel area have this navy blue suede material. The body is just your typical material, I’m just not sure if it’s canvas.

The design is by BEHANCE and this is why they chose this style:

“Stickers are one of the most iconic items in skateboard culture. 

Every skater has its own sticker collection. Every board, every skate shop It´s full of stickers. 

For my Vans 50th anniversary pack I wanted to bring back all this sticker culture with a print built with real vintage Vans stickers and using it in the most iconic Vans siluetes like the Sk8 Hi, Oldskool and Authentic”

The sole is still the classic gum sole with honey comb pattern that every Old Skool and Sk8-Hi has.

You can basically pair this with any outfit. Besides my Chuck Taylor’s, this pair is my second favorite go to kicks at the moment.

It’s the same with Chuck’s. You can’t go wrong with Old Skool’s.

What do you guys think? Let me know below!

#OOTD PART 4 (BOMBER) 

I literally have had this thing or fascination with bomber jackets for quite a while already but I just wasn’t able to grab one. Maybe because it was a tad bit expensive? Yeah probably that. 

Luckily, my folks got me 2 bombers (and other clothes) from their trip to Milan. I’ve been wanting a jacket for months already and now, not only did I get one, I got two! Patience truly is a virtue for this was really worth the wait.
MOVING ON.

I really wanted to rock my new jackets (and other new clothes) as soon as possible! Fortunately for me, we watched “Spider-Man: Homecoming” just the other night. Perfect opportunity.
I decided to rock the Navy blue bomber with a plain black shirt, a white pair of shorts (It’s dri-fit as well!), a white-strapped watch, a bracelet, and a pair of Vans Old Skool. 

And that part I forgot to mention, I also got new Vans (Old Skool mids).
The Vans that I got was a 50th Anniversary edition or either for the Summer/Spring collection I think? I haven’t done my research on them yet but that’s what the people at Vans told my folks when they got it. I’ll just have to take their word for it.

I’ll put up a review of the shoes as well soon.

The outfit is plain, simple, and yet, it stands out. It has a bit of that classy/preppy vibe to it as well.

Tell me what you think of this outfit down below!

Jacket: H&M (L.O.G.G.)

Shirt: Generic plain black shirt

Shorts: White Kappa Dri-fit shorts

Shoes: Vans Old Skool Mid (Stickers)

#OOTD PART 3

This isn’t so much of an OOTD. No one was there to take pictures of me.

Except for my sister.

Wrong choice.

Damn it.

My sister isn’t good with taking pictures. She isn’t fond of OOTD’s as well, but I had no other choice. I gave her instructions and… she took pictures of herself on my phone (I’ll put those pics on a separate post). 

This was the only decent pic that she took (plus editing).

I decided to do a flat lay instead.

Plain dark blue v-neck, partnered with gray sweatshorts that stop a bit above the knee, white chucks, a white pair of Nike crew socks, a watch, and a bracelet if you want. The socks are optional if you’re not a fan of high socks. 

This kind of style or outfit is usually what I wear when I go to school since it’s easy to put together, especially for a guy who’s usually too lazy to dress up in the morning. 

You could also trade the top for a white shirt like this,

Comments? You know where to put them! 

STAR LABS

I FINALLY GOT ONE!

I’ve been wanting this shirt for a while now but I haven’t been able to get one since the stores near me DO NOT have this in stock. I mean, c’mon man, WHY?! It’s a sought after shirt and you don’t have it in stock? SMH.

Fast forward to a few days ago (same time I got my pink H&M shirt), but just to make the long story short, I saw the shirt, I tried the shirt, I bought the shirt. It was that simple. No more second thoughts. I had to get it. Though I was thinking of getting the sweater instead of the shirt, but with the unpredictable weather (which is hot and dry most of the time), the shirt was more reasonable to get, and it was cheaper. 

I got this shirt at Pop Culture inside Trinoma for P400.

Pink Vibes

Pink.

I haven’t been a huge fan of that color until recently. Why? I really don’t know. I felt like I couldn’t rock it or something like that. But now, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a pink hoodie or a pink shirt but I wasn’t lucky enough to get one.

Till this week.

I went to H&M to just window shop and nothing more till I came across this plain pink tee. I knew I just had to get it. I grabbed a size large and headed for the fitting room. Usually I’d buy a medium sized shirt but semi-oversized shirts have this hold on me these past few months.

The shirt was perfect. Plain and simple. I just partnered it with ripped jeans, a white cap, and white Chucks, a watch, and my rastaclat (any other bracelet will do or none if that’s how you roll).

How could you go wrong with a plain shirt, jeans (ripped or not), and Chucks? That’s right. Never.

J12? Curry 1?

Just today I went to a mall’s department store and was looking at the shoes section and I, along with my sister, stumbled upon this very eye catching pair.


I actually thought they were selling Jordan 12’s! They also had the White/Black colorway. My God. These are ripoffs! So bad dude. I mean, WHAT THE HELL?! Fire whoever’s responsible for this! Oh and if you think that’s it? Look at the sole!


Curry 1 soles anyone?

SMH for this pair. For those asking for the brand? Hot Wheels.

That’s all I have to say for this pair. I honestly am just trying to have a good laugh from this. Damn.

#OOTD PART 2

THINGS YOU NEED:

– Pocket tee (Bench)

– Jacket (Quiksilver)

– Ripped jeans (any old jeans and rip it)

– White Cap (any white cap)

– White Chucks (well, converse, obviously)


Not much to write on this post since I just really like this outfit.

The outfit would still look good even without the jacket wrapped around my waist but with it, it gives you a bit more attitude and color. The simplicity of the outfit makes it look appealing. You could also plainly fold the end of your pants or pinroll it.

I’d usually wear a plain white shirt or a plain black shirt but since they weren’t there for me to use, a black shirt with a gray pocket will also do since the pocket adds an accent to your overall outfit.

Sunday #OOTD

Waddup guys? Took too long for me to come back with a new post? Yeah, I know. Sorry about that (insert peace sign emoji).

Anyway,

We celebrated my dad’s birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday!), and yes it did land on a Sunday, so we went out to have lunch and then mass in the evening.

I honestly didn’t know what to wear, well, except for the pants and shoes, those I had covered already. Luckily, mom was there to save the day! She let me use one of my dad’s long sleeves.

And voilà, instant #OOTD!

The soft and simple colors just makes it so easy to look at and it’s very appealing! Just partner it with a simple watch, wax your hair or whatever it is you feel like doing to it, and you are done!

I also love those pants. So comfy and it may not look like it, but it is stretchable and soft, plus the tapered ends just make it look extra clean.

You may or may not notice it, but those shoes of mine (Onitsuka Tiger), are really beaten up already. But just like Chuck Taylor’s, they look good even if they’re a bit messed up already. Maybe it’s just me, I really don’t know.

That’s about it. Thanks for taking your time to read this short post! Hopefully I get to post regularly already!

Just comment down below on whatever it is you feel like asking me!

Socks

Socks + Your game = Does it make a difference? 

For me? Yes. It does. How? Let me explain. 

When you’re on the court and it’s starting to heat up (literally), your whole body starts to sweat. Including your feet. You don’t want your feet to sweat, it feels uncomfortable. That’s where the socks come in. These aren’t your ordinary socks. These are basketball socks that are made to prevent sweat from interfering with your game. 

There are tons of basketball socks out there, but I’ll be talking about the ones I use when playing.

  • Nike HyperElite Socks:

A. Comfort-  3.5 out of 5. 

B. Fit- 5 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 2.5/3 out of 5

Overall- It could have been the best if it wasn’t for the ventilation of the socks. To me, that was the problem. I don’t know if you guys have the same problem, but I certainly thought that they could have made some adjustments to make it a bit better. 

  • Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks:

A. Comfort- 4 out of 5

B. Fit- 3.5 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 4.5 out of 5

Overall- The ventilation was better than the HyperElite’s but the fit was not as good. I like socks that are tight around your feet and legs.

  • OBBO Tempo Socks:

A. Comfort- 4.5 out of 5

B. Fit- 3 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 4 out of 5

Overall- Comfort was really good but it did lack a whole lot in the fit department. Ventilation was above average. It’s just the fit man, c’mon. 

Total overall: I prefer the Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks. It’s comfy and snug and provides good ventilation. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy the other socks, it still depends on what is more comfortable for you.
