These Volta sneakers make me feel some type of way.

Could see them working for some BW type stuff.

How do you size AF1s? And is there a canonical decision on lo/mid/high?

And also does Adidas make a version.

TTS, lows/his > mids.

Rivalries are the closest thing i can think of probably, they do them in a low and a hi and they're of similar proportions.

forums are pretty similar but I think they only come in high tops.

if you just want the bulk of it, superstars and lavers will both do fine. quite a bit lighter too.

I like the idea of "sportswear brand allegiance" and decided to pursue a little more nike in my life. for a while I've been really attracted to the nike air pegasus 83.

probably picking these up to replace my new balances, maybe in both the white and black.

I heard they may be making them in a nicer leather than the previous iterations. I've heard (I think from ramdom) that they tend to get smelly, so hopefully this would alleviate that.

they did a limited edition back in sept in nicer leather but I'd imagine the GR ones will be the same as every other model they make.

i am really into the idea of bright blue sneakers right now. specifically: blue suede sneakers

Image

Image

Image
nike sb janoskis. i really like the seafoam and kind of chalky darker blue being used here.

Image
quilted nikes that were on rakuten a while back. they were even in my size, i think! why didn't i get these

Image
airwalk one sneakers. i really like the toothy sole. if someone makes, however, bright blue suede sneakers with a ripple sole i'll have to instacop because in my mind that seems like the most perfect beautiful thing.

Image
i have a slight preference for teal suede over strict cobalt blue but these are still pretty sick

Image
adidas gazelles in teal (i swear i've saved like 10 images of these shoes/people wearing these shoes. want these v. badly)

Image
MMM GATs in blue canvas + suede. i love these. feel like a lot of the colorways do a good job of pairing tonal/similar hues together (like the black/purple someone posted a bit upthread).

Image
adidas superstars. the goldenrod-ish stripes work really well here, i think. toe shape/texture feels very awk to me though, especially with the line of white stitching.

so, some of you may know that my university offers a student-taught course on sneakers. i am taking it this semester (fingers crossed will not have to drop the class) and our first session was yesterday!

things that happened:

  • one of the student instructors (there are 3) brought in his air yeezys and left them in the front of the room waiting for someone to make a remark on them
  • we went around the room and introduced ourselves and our favorite sneakers, and for every one the instructors asked the rest of us "cop? or no cop?"
  • one dude in the class told this epic story about flipping a pair of sneakers to get funds and waiting in line for hours for some limited-edition pair that sold out four people before he made it to the door, and had to resort to resellers on ebay
  • i was super flustered when i had to come up with a favorite pair of sneakers and decided to say y-3 honja highs because i couldn't figure out if i should say "GATs" or "german army trainers" and they also made me specify a colorway. stressful
  • so much sneaker terminology holy shit and i felt awk because i was the only person in the class that had to ask what "bred" meant and "icy sole" and a ton of other stuff
  • we watched just for kicks but i had to leave early to run my chapter meeting! v. sad about it, it was fascinating
  • did not know there were so many hardcore sneakerheads in my university (largely dudes in engineering or design appaz)
  • people kept on joking about sounding obnoxiously hypebeast-y
  • one of the instructors talked about how quetzalcoatl visited the class approximately 10 times during the two hours
