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) […]

Sneaker Freaker

Wow. I wasn’t expecting that to go online so quickly after the shoot with Errol. Woody and the guys at Sneaker Freaker have just published a ‘catch up’ feature on my big (ie. silly) collection of trainers/sneakers after their interview with me for the Vintage feature they did a couple of years back. The models […]

Nike Huarache Burst AD21

One of the brightest colourways in my collection, the AD21 Bursts are in my top 5 Nikes of all-time.

Nike Air Footscape Motion: Climbers Pack

I’ve been a big fan of the Footscape since the grey and blue ones dropped in 1995, but it got hard to keep up in the past few years. Aside from special Japan-only colourways (including some lovely monotone editions from Hiroshi Fujiwara at Fragment), once Nike decided to adapt their Flywire technology new models dropped […]
