Laid back

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy—but mysterious. But above all, black says this: I don’t bother you—don’t bother me.” –  Yohji Yamamoto

How can you honestly go wrong with an all black fit? I love black. I could go for days wearing anything black. That’s what I went for in this outfit.

It’s a laid back vibe but still has that sort of edge to it. Wore a brown fisherman’s hat to match my brown sneakers, the red lining of the track pants popped from the dark colors of my ensemble, and tucked my pants inside the socks for that extra rugged look.

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.

    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.
