There's a kid at school with these and I'm fiending so hard. Basically Taxi 12s that would go with more of my wardrobe.

Taking flintstone from a Japanese rising sun, the Air Jordan 12 Retro Men’s Boot reflects the signature look of a basketball icon in an ultra-comfortable fit.

Benefits Include:

- Full-grain leather upper with ankle wrap for support
- Full-length Air-Sole unit with Phylon midsole for superior cushioning
- Rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for traction and durability

Not exactly dope right now, but I copped these off-brand Shape-Ups from the thrift store. The patterns were easier to color out than whatever horrendous thing Skechers puts on theirs.

This basically convinced me that if anyone with any design sense whatsoever took on the Shape-Ups silhouette, they would look pretty fucking dope

Image

EDIT: Yeah I know these suck. I'm just saying a good designer would be able to tease something dope out of it. Particularly if the upper was more solid and the sole was a bit lower, though still had the rounded bottom. FWIW, I don't think I'll really ever wear these unironically, I just wanted something cheap to play around with the design ideas in my head

I don't really wear Nikes, but I'd totally bite that bullet if I found these:

Would also wear the red reef colourway, either one is going to be super challenging to find though. I slept on a pair of red reef ones a few months ago for $90, now I can't find them new and in my size at all.

Really really want these Carhartt WIP sneaks. They're like a blucher style/Converse alternative to Eytys. It's rare that I want something in every single colorway, and these guys hit the spot

crazy that you can get full grain on the midsole, i've only ever seen that option on in-store iD/bespoke air force 1s.

too bad there's no option for leather lining or canvas outers. still pretty epic iD options
