Cruel Shoes

I haven't been a "sneaker guy" in quite some time. I put that term in quotes because it's become quite a strange moniker to have these days. You can't just be into shoes anymore, because since the days of Nelly buying "2 perrrrr" - it's become more about obsession than an actual love for the physical shoe. And in this new rabid environment of sneaker collecting, I was never going to buy "one pair to wear, one pair to stare," build a custom closet for just the boxes or wait in line starting at 3 AM for a limited edition Nike Dunk (we'll leave that to the Korean Tom Cruise), so I decided to just give it all up. But a recent visit to HighSnobiety.com has me second guessing my abrupt decision to just walk away. Take a looksy at these gems for the feet that have inspired me all day to take Clan even further in the future.

Vans Watermelon Pack (part of their 2009 Fruits collection)






Nike Blazer High



Nike Air Jordan 1 Low Phat



Nike Air Jordan Force VI



Supra "Timbos" (get your iggity-early 90's Das Efx on)



Converse 100th Anniversary Collection



Mita x Lacoste Missouri 85 Mid


Supra Suprano High Purple Metallic (how fast do you think Lil' Wayne put these on?)


Figured it might give you some inspiration too. Maybe, maybe not. But with these kicks, "Burn After Reading" hitting Blu-Ray this last weekend and the lights of Christmas everywhere, I'm ready for the New Year and new ideas.

I'll take those Converse and Vans anyday. Gah! Clan shoes would be major love. I'm sure I'd never stop wearing them.

Converse=win.

I got a pair of clear ones, that you can see through to my socks....and I have to say, those are my second favorite pair I ever saw....

my first favorite pair is in my closet, and they're lime green and have words of wisdom written by all my friends all over them.
