From the Back of My Sneaker Cupboard #1

When you have over 100 pairs of sneakers, and rising, a lot of pairs end up at the back of my cupboard and don't get the wear they deserve. So I'm going to blog some of them from time to time, starting with these Nike Aquasocs. Remember these?

New Plimsolls - Part Two

Also bought recently, this unusual pair of white plimsolls from River Island. The rubber toecaps are pointier than I usually like, and it's an unusual feeling to wear an "over the ankle" plimsoll, but I'm really diggin' these plims!

What do you think?

New Plimsolls - Part One

First of my recent plimsoll purchases are these black lace to toe plimsolls from Cult Clothing. I was hoping that they were an identical model to the white lace toe plims, of which I have alreayd purchased several excellent pairs. Sadly, these aren't quite the same and are a bit disappointing. Whilst comfortable, the proportions aren't quite right (toecaps too big?) and the sole pattern is not as good.

What do you think?

Plimsolls from Cult Clothing

Cult Clothing: Another good source of plimsolls. Cheap too. I buy most of mine from one of their branches. More on my latest pair soon!

Adidas Tygun - more variants

Another interesting variant on the Adidas Tygun. The black and silver boot (already in my collection!) but with red laces and soles. Nice. Looks like another variant for the French market. (Photos found on eBay).

Grand Valley State Wrestling Meet

Interesting comparing the soles of these two different pairs of wrestling shoes, one by Asics, one by Nike.
