OLD SOLE, NEW TRICKS: I

Thursday, June 6th, 2013 by

Aloha all!

For those of you whom I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, I would love to introduce myself. I’m Jared, commonly known as Parkz, and currently work on the design team here at FITTED. As a 14-year collector and lover of sneakers, shoes, and various forms of footwear, I’ve decided to share my insignificant opinions on the latest news dealing with my relationship with footwear. Each pair of worn sneakers will often be accompanied by a story; Where the owner has travelled to, seen, experienced, etc. It is through these memories (whether good or bad) that I have grown a subliminal, yet authentic love for nothing but stitched pieces of fabric and rubber…

 

FAVORITE PICK UPS OF THE WEEK

Air Jordan I Retro High “Black Toe”
What can I say? …Loved the Beginning Moments Pack of 2007! With this 2013 version, they added the correct tongue label and an extra lace hole, while presenting them in a beautifully nostalgic box, so how on Earth could anyone complain?!

Cole Haan Lunargrand Chukka Exclusive – Camello
Got lucky and found one locally for a great price. Besides a very beautifully unique color, the Kudu Suede is ridiculously soft and falls nowhere short of quality. I will be sure to catch a few spilled drinks with these at the club…

CH Lunargrand Chukka

Nike Flyknit Chukka Wolf Grey
Set to release 06.22.13 in the States. Still amazed at the beauty of flyknit fabric and how incrediably light these are… Wolf Grey color way = win.

WORTHY MENTIONS ON THE HORIZON

Saint Alfreds X Asics Gel Lyte III releasing 06.08.13
Very nice combination of pastels; Soft look, but deadly on feet. Definitely a favorite amongst Asics runners emerging now. For more info, visit http://stalfred.com

Saint Alfreds X Asics

Air Jordan XI Low White/Black-True Red releasing 06.08.13
Still don’t know how I feel about these just yet. They definitely look A LOT better than original sampling.
I may need to consider giving these a shot, although I passed on the previous lows without regret.

Jordan XI Low

Air Jordan Retro V “Black Grapes” releasing 06.15.13
What? They took my favorite V’s and turned them black?! [checks picture...]
Clean; Can’t be mad.
