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 […]

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 […]

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. Released exclusively for the Japanese market vai the AD21 store back in 2004, these were pretty difficult to get. My days of doubling-up on shoes are over, but I’ve kept a spare pair of these on […]

adidas Crooked Tongues ZX 9000

The Crooked Tongues piece in the adidas aZX puzzle, Charlie and Gary did a cracking job with the colours and material specification on these ZX 9000s. They’re packed with loads of great details: carbon fibre heel strike, charcoal 3M panels and other cool elements. I’m not sure these got the attention they deserved when they […]
