MORE AIR

It’s actually Air More, but you get the point.

Finally was able to get my hands on a classic pair that was on sale (fortunately). It’s not an OG colorway but it’s beautiful anyway. It’s a classic pair that is well known because Scottie Pippen used to rock these on court. Nowadays, it’s used mainly off court.

Just your typical Nike box, nothing fancy.

I got the White/Gum sole colorway (as you can see).

  • • White leather upper, even on the letterings.
  • • Full length Air Midsole.
  • • Pull tabs in the heel area

    • Thick gum sole/outsole

    • Elastic bands work perfectly (for me) if you go half a size down so that even if you decide to go loose laced, it still fits your feet perfectly.

    It’s a solid shoe. Hands down. I mean, I wouldn’t buy a pair that I don’t like. I ain’t like that. I personally won’t use it for hooping, that’s for sure. I know it’s a basketball shoe, but it is NOT COMFORTABLE (for basketball). If you’re using it casually, it’s great. I just don’t think I’d last long on the court with this pair.

    IS IT WORTH BUYING?

    If you’re into retro/old school shoes, YES.

    For hooping? Solid NO. But that’s my opinion. If you feel like you can use these on the court, by all means, go ahead. It can get pretty hot though.

    I got this pair for, PHP 7,500 (USD 141) and it was on sale. The price is usually around PHP 8,500-9,000 (USD 160-170).

    If you guys like (or love) collecting cool looking sneakers, OG retros, hyped up kicks, I recommend going to Got Goods (the address is in the link).

    That’s it for today, leave your thoughts in the comments section down below!

    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).

    Vans Old Skool “NUDE”

    These are fly.

    I only have one pair of Old Skool’s (you can click here to check it out) and I wasn’t really planning on getting another one anytime soon? But man, when I had the opportunity to grab these, I just had to.

    I actually got this pair the same time I got the Flyknit Trainer 2017.

    Now, these are plain. No design whatsoever. BUT. That’s the great thing about it. It just proves that it ain’t always about the design and whatnot, simplicity will always be better. Match it with a black shirt or just a plain shirt and some jeans or shorts and you’re good to go!

    I made a quick unboxing video, watch it below! With that being said, please do subscribe to my YouTube channel and on my other social media accounts! I’ll post the details below the video!

    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!

    #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)

    A sweats kind of evening

    I do not do OOTD’s or OOTN’s. 

    Not until recently.

    So for my outfit for tonight’s dinner, I didn’t want to dress up too much (I was lazy. Give me a break.). 

    I went to my cabinet, got a plain black shirt, my favorite pair of sweats, a watch, a plain black cap and my new pair of D’Rose 5 “Bad Dreams”. 

    The result? This.

      
    It’s simple yet it gives that sporty kind of feel. This is a perfect getup if you’re not in the mood to dress up too much. You could also trade the top for a hoodie or a sweater if it’s cold out or it’s raining.
