    My OG Team Jordans were $79.99, but that was back when I could get away with wearing size 13. I wore those bad boys into the ground. I still have them, but the soles are starting to separate on the bottom, probably from cheap manufacturing or bad glue.

    A couple of pick-ups since my last post!

    Flyknits: Red Rooster and Midnight Racer
    New Balance: Olive 247 and Premier 998 (I owned the Premier before and sold them after wearing them out! Easily my favorite New Balance colorway)
    Adidas: The poor man Yeezy, Shadow Knit Tubular (Not a bad shoe, fun and under $100!)


    and my beloved Foamposites! One of my first purchases years ago, sold due to aftermarket value. I'm hoping to keep this pair longer.... unless aftermarket goes wild again

    Didn't realize the XXXI ASG matched my custom Oakley X-Metal Romeo (MJ was a big fan of X-Metal) perfectly.

    I like these, but for $200? Sheeeiiitt... There's a limit to my madness. :lol 

    Do any of you guys buy shoes to match certain outfits? That's pretty much all I do. I wear a great deal of sports gear and comic character merchandise and I have kicks to match almost every outfit. I've even taken it a step further by wearing Oakleys that have lenses match the shoes and outfits I'm wearing.

    I REALLY like these Wheat 12s. Not every wheat or wheat-esque shoe works for me (I like the Wheat Foam One, but other stuff I'm indifferent towards), but these hit just right. They might be a bitch to get, but these will be a target for summer. I just hope they don't hit around SDCC time.

    The 'Wheat' PSNY x Air Jordan 12 Is Releasing This Year

    Damn those are pretty. It's funny how I started out as waiting & waiting for a 31 colorway to like, and now there are a ton of options I love (Black Toe, All-Star, the upcoming Black Cat & Royal).

    Well it doesn't seem to have sold out still, so if you hold out a while you can probably snag it for cheaper than retail. I like the 4 and love this design so it's worth it to me, but it looks like the Black Cat 13 right now, a cool shoe you can bide your time on and maybe catch it on sale for less.

    As for matching outfits, I wear a lot of black, gray, blue & red, so many shoes I own match my usual day-to-day outfits already. There are still tops I have that are colors I don't usually wear (yellow, brownish, green) and I have looked out for shoes that match (Liberty Questions already, BAPE Questions & Thunder 4s, some various Foams, for down the road).

    My OCD with matching pretty much makes up my entire wardrobe life. Caps, clothes, shoes and Oakley X-Metals all match when I go out. :lol

    Got the 13 with $20 off.

    Waiting on the tan Generation. Looks like they're charging me but I got no confirmation from SNKRS.

    I buy my shoes first then buy cloths to match with the shoes I like and have.
