I Keen, You Ken?

Instead of those wimpy water shoes that don’t cost a lot and don’t offer any support, I got me a pair of Keens. Instead of getting my kicks wet and muddy while hiking, I figured Keens would be the best alternative. And let me say they did not disappoint while hiking to Secret Falls on […]

My Next Shoe Venture – Allbirds

The world’s most comfortable shoe? I’m there… or at least, I plan to give Allbirds a try. Only available in one model, the Wool Runner, I’d like to make my own assessment of their comfort level, especially with the 30-day return policy, but the colorway has to be right. The black and grey colorways are […]

The Shoe That Was Meant to Be

In the end, I guess it was just meant to be. In January of 2016, I had ordered the Nike Air Max 2015 in black and white from Nike’s online clearance section. Priced at $149.97, down from $190, the shoes felt good but not $150 good. So I returned them. Forward to November 2016 and […]

Tried for the Adidas NMD and BAPE collaboration but was denied (as expected). Adidas had a mechanism in place to randomly allow visitors to the online sale page, kinda effective.

Flight 23 Takes Off in Hawaii

Flight 23 by Footaction officially took flight on Friday, November 18, 2016 with its grand opening in the International Market Place. Technically, this storefront is not really a retail store. It’s an Air Jordan-focused addon to the adjacent Footaction. The workers roam between the two stores, and all purchases are made at Footaction. But still […]

Costco Hawaii Kai Get Mad Kicks

Well, the workers there anyways. But yes, if you’re ever at the Costco location in Hawaii Kai, check out the kicks of the workers, especially those working at checkout. For the most part, the workers, both men and women, are wearing nice shoes. On a recent outing, I saw these Adidas Ultra Boosts and NMDs. […]

Air Max Lunar1 "Photo Blue"

Returned my Air Max Lunar1

In July/August 2014, I was stoked that I was stocked with the Nike Air Max Lunar1. The Lunar update of the Air Max 1 has been awesome (and stylish too), but the other day, this happened. A part of the outsole separated from the shoe itself. I thought I had something stuck to the bottom […]

Almost Paradise

My eyes did not deceive. That is a Foot Locker right next door to a Starbucks. Right next door! That’s almost paradise. Almost because I couldn’t go to either since we were in a hurry.

Roshes Still Rule

I can’t help but look at the shoes of pedestrians. What I see on NYDC16 is lots of Nike Roshes. Lots. Probably the prevalent sneaker that I’ve noticed. There are quite a few Nike TR trainers too. For all the success of Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, I saw lots of GS hats […]

Quick Review of the Adidas AlphaBOUNCE 

I was somewhat surprised to find the new Adidas AlphaBOUNCE running shoes at Macy’s via Finish Line. But there they were in men’s and kids sizes. The original zebra-ish colorway is still available in kids sizes. I tried on my usual size 10 in this core black version, and these felt narrow. Only $100, these […]
