Everybody knows I have an affinity for Jordan Brand kicks for public and private reasons, but I've been looking to re-diversify my rotation and further set myself apart from the "Saturday Morning Raffle Ticket" sneaker head. I tend to move in a way that allows me to stand independent of the in-crowd, so taking a break from retro religion is a vacation of sorts from being lumped in w/ everyone else who's chasing MJ's release calendar. So here's a #FreshFiles recap of my spring pickups to give the constituents of the #PoliticalStatus campaign an idea of what I came up on to keep my #FoundationFresh.
Shoe: Nike Kobe X Elite "Rivals" aka "Chester Cheetah"
Suggested Retail: $200 Paid: $100
#PoliticalStatus: First pair of Kobe's I've ever purchased and I have to say I'm quite impressed. Kobe may have one of the best crafted shoes in nike's basketball line. Quality materials, comfortable, and very flashy. Usually when you combine those three qualities in a show you have me sold,
Shoe: Nike KD 8 "Bright Crimson"
Suggested Retail: $180 Paid: $90
#PoliticalStatus: A definite venture away from its previous incarnation the KD8 takes on an AirMax-ish look and feel w/ this silhouette. Bright eye catching colors make this an easy shoe to draw attention with but also a very unique shoe to dress. I liked it so I bought it.
Shoe: Nike Lebron XII Low "Red October"
Suggested Retail: $175 Paid: $120
#PoliticalStatus: For 2 str8 yr's IMO the Lebron Low has been the most comfortable & diverse shoe of its type to rock off court. For some reason Nike just gets it right consistently with the low version of the Lebron collection. I love this shoe! Multiple pairs in different color ways will be bought.
Shoe: Nike Kobe X "Flight"
Suggested Retail: $180 Paid: $75
#PoliticalStatus: The elite purchase led me to believe all Kobe were created equal...for the most part that's true with this show as well. The Elite for obvious reasons is a bit more refined but the regular Kobe X is also a quality product. Caught em on sale & couldn't let em sit. More than likely these will be turned into a custom seeing as the colors scheme doesn't lend itself to be much more than a workout shoe w/o some tweaking & I rely on "Fingertrap Max" for gym work.
Shoe: Nike Lunarfly 306
Suggested Retail: $95 Paid: $35
#PoliticalStatus: No Laces, No Worries. Essentially a Nike house shoe...and I only paid $35 bucks for em. No brainier!
