Nothing more than a visual diary of my daily sneaker choices.

Nike x Misha (PAM) ‘Running Man Pack’ Air Max 90

These are up there with the fluro runners from the late ’80s when it comes to lurid colourways. Green, yellow and purple sounds horrific, but I really liked these Quickstrikes when they came out in 2008. Misha Hollenbach (AKA Perks from PAM) put these together as part of Nike’s ‘Running Man’ pack, along with Reas […]

Nike Air Flow TZ Tonal Pack

6am came and went, my alarm got switched onto permanent snooze and that was it: I was too tired. I ended up waking at 8.15am and thought I’d head up there anyway just to see what was going on. When I arrived outside Selfridges at 9.15, I bumped into Crooked’s own Mubi and We Are […]

Nike Air Current

Seeing as my last post was about the OG Nike Air Flow, following up with the Air Current seemed like a logical option. Released a year after the Air Flow, the Current looked to take even more weight from the uppers, utilising a ripstop material and removing the Swoosh altogether. Slightly less snug than the […]

Nike Air Flow

As the retro of this shoe is imminent, I thought it was a good time to break out the OGs. I’ve been trying to organise a feature on Trashfilter about this model, as it’s one of my favourite running shoes of all-time. Widely ignored at the time of release (at least in London), probably due […]

Nike x Patta Air Max 1 (green)

I have to admit that I’ve never been the biggest fan of the original Air Max. I can’t put my finger on why exactly (the midsole looks a bit… plain?): I appreciate the design and I think the original colourway is one of the best ever, but I waited for the Air Max 90s instead. […]

adidas Collwood ST

The clocks changed last night, so what better time to go through the wardrobe and swap a few things over? Nestled amongst the piles of t-shirts and bags of jackets were these Collwood STs that I’d forgotten about. These pre-production samples have got a Bucktown ST name tag on the side – I guess the […]

Nike Footscape Freemotion (Fragment Design)

I’ve loved the Footscape since I saw the ‘exploded’ view ads in copies of Details magazine that I ‘borrowed’ from college. It’s one of those shoes that can look a little bulky from the wearer’s viewpoint, but looks sleek (note: in the true sense of the word, not a referral to a 3-stripe diffusion range) […]

Asics Gel Lyte III x Slam Jam

Out of 320-odd pairs of trainers, there are only a handful of Asics in my inventory. There’s no real reason for this, other than they were never really that available when I was growing up. Local shops didn’t have them and this was before the internet existed, so unless I was flicking through a running […]

adidas A.R.C. ZX 7000

I never paid that much attention to the ZX 7000 to be honest: in my mind, it sat a little awkwardly between the regular runners and other more rugged models, such as the EQT. Well, that was my loss. Treis and Kunle from Alife’s Rivington Club came over with us to adidas HQ in Herzogenaurach, […]

adidas Torsion SP Low Gore-Tex®

A snow day – again – means that some waterproofing is required. Ditch the moonboots and find yourself a pair of these adidas Torsion Specials. They’re not the tallest model (you’ll get wet socks if you’re hiking through anything deeper than 2 inches), but my feet were still bone dry after an hour trudging through […]
