Chucks: Clean or Worn?

A neat film that makes a novel suggestion about just what to do if you don't like your Chucks in boxfresh condition:

Box Champ Speeds 2s - first photos

Box Champ Speed 2s, as received this week. An intriguing blend of classic Box Champ Speeds on a more recent adidas sole. I'm liking the red and gold detailing. How do you think they compare to the originals?

Vintage Nikes on eBay

These vintage wrestling shoes from Nike (as seen on eBay recently) are totally awesome. Come on Nike, do us a favour and re-issue them!

Converse Slim Hi - from Schuh

Sneaker retailers Schuh have caught my eye with this great new variation of the classic Converse Chuck Taylor hitop, in my opinion. The slimline profile of these looks great, I think, and I'm really feeling them in that colourway. I'll be getting these, for sure, but they may not please the true Converse purist. What do you think?

Today I am mostly wearing

...vintage old Converse Star Players from the 1990's. USA-made, now a bit old and discoloured but still better than the current crop of reissues. You weren't expecting those, were you? ;-)

Today I am mostly wearing Feiyue lowtops. This is an older photo of my pair. They're getting rather worn now. I love my Feiyues but they can't take a whole lot of rough wear.

Today I am mostly wearing

Adidas Combat Speed wrestling shoes. Classic vintage wrestlers in an awesome colourway. Wrestlers in the USA are desperate to get hold of pairs of these, but they're not for sale or trade. Sorry, too precious!

Today I am mostly wearing

...White Feiyues. I have a feeling that 2010 is going to be a Feiyue year :-)

Happy New Year, everybody!
