Every day is about growing and trying something new..if you get into a 'rut' in any aspect of your life (style, relationships, business) its probably because you've been doing things the same way for a long time. To keep my wardrobe (and sanity) fresh, I decided that 2016 would be the year that I stick my feet into the ocean known as the sneaker world.
For the longest time when I thought of sneakers, all I could think of was one word: hassle. They can be hard to keep clean and require proper care. I remember my first pair of sneakers were a pair of Shaq's that lasted no more than two or three months with muddy shoe laces, scuffs across the front and a torn sole.
Although I made great memories playing in them as a kid, my memory of them (and their memory of me) isn't too bright. In case you need your memory jogged, they're one of the 50 ugliest basketball shoes ever made.
You won't catch me camping out all night for any pair of shoes (or anything at all) as a "hypebeast", but every now and then you'll see more simplistic sneakers on the blog. Its nearly been four years since my last sneaker purchase, so a classic pair of kicks with history was what I had my sights on in the Adidas Superstar 80s. Although they're a classic, Adidas chose them as the premiere silhouette for 2015 and I was sold.
Here are a few sneakers on my wish list, and a few pieces you can look at to re surge your sneaker collection. .
