Reebok Voltron’s at Athletes Foot

Posted by Mark

Reebok Voltron

I just passed by Athletes Foot in Marina Mall and noticed they got the Reebok Voltron pack of sneakers. They’re ugly and I would never wear them but at least they’re starting to get interesting stuff.

Score
Athletes Foot 1 – Foot Locker 0

PUMA RS 100 INJEX

PUMA Injex

I hate Crocs because they look funny but I always wanted something similar for the beach. While in Munich I found an excellent alternative, the PUMA RS 100 INJEX. Pretty long but cooling looking name for what essentially is foam injected into a shoe mold. Its very comfy and much cooler looking than the Crocs. At $35 they are very cheap. [Link]

Fashion, Rain and Freezing Weather

Posted by Mark

Puma Racing

One thing I haven’t mentioned yet about Munich is the weather. It’s FREEZING, the temperature during the day is like 9 degrees and ever since I came its been raining a lot. Thats why when I passed by Puma in the evening and found their official Volvo Ocean Race gear I had to get a jacket. Pictured above is the official PUMA Race Team jacket which has a Gortex shell, a high collar and a packable hood. I wore it on the way back home in the rain and it was just fantastic.

Adidas Diesel

I also managed to find Adidas Jeans by Diesel. Diesel and Adidas teamed up for this new line of jeans and the Adidas Originals store next to my hotel had some in stock. I ended up getting the pair pictured above. I am having a hard time shopping in Munich since everything closes early (8PM). By the time I finish with work and decide to do some shopping I don’t have time. Even supermarkets close at 8!

G-Star Raw in Kuwait

G-Star Raw Kuwait

I was in The Avenues for lunch when I noticed that G-Star Raw opened up in the new extension. I quickly browsed through the store and I am definitely going back again and take my time. The store looks pretty cool, its cool they finally opened up in Kuwait.

These new sneakers from Nike to commorate the 2008 Olympics look very very comfortable. But at 130€, they aren’t cheap. [Link]

Sneakers in Kuwait are Boring

Posted by Mark

Size? Neal Street

A lot of you (like 99.9% of you) don’t like the sneakers I like and thats absolutely fine by me. But one thing I hope many of you will agree with me on is the fact that Foot Locker and Athletes Foot in Kuwait have the safest and dullest collection of sneakers imaginable. Walking into both those stores yesterday was depressing. After visiting my favorite sneaker stores in London like Size? and Offspring (Foot Patrol sadly closed down) Athletes Foot and Foot Locker both seemed dull, generic and PG rated.

My biggest regret from my London trip was not purchasing the Puma Disc Blaze sneakers. I can’t get them out of my head, kinda like Tara Reid’s boob at P. Diddy’s thirty-fifth birthday party. Its like driving by a car wreck, you don’t want to look but you really can’t help not looking and thats how those Puma’s were. On the bright side I did get the Adidas Oddity’s which I posted about in November.

I don’t mind the local stores selling safe sneakers for the mass, in the end they need to make money and they won’t be able to without catering to the large public. But how about a little corner for the people who want something more than just a white sneaker with 3 black stripes?

Anyway I took some pictures of various sneakers I saw at Offspring which I wanted to share with my readers below. As you can see colorful weird sneakers are something of the norm in London. Visiting a sneaker store in London will actually help you understand and appreciate the London 2012 Olympics logo.

The picture above is of the outside of my favorite Size? store which is located on Neal Street. Offspring’s most popular location probably is the one inside of Selfridges.

Puma Disc Blaze

Puma Disc Blaze

Finally got to see these sneakers live today at the Size? store here in London. I think they look pretty nice (90′s are in) but I don’t think any store in Kuwait would get them. They’re too weird for Kuwait. [Link]

Supermarket

Supermarket

I found this online store last night called Supermarket and since then I’ve found a lot of interesting stuff there. Supermarket sells “great designs straight from the designers” so everything on their site ranging from scarves to coasters just look extremely trendy. The prices aren’t too bad either. [Link]

Dishdasha online

Posted by Mark

iDishdasha

I thought this site was a joke at first but it seems its real. The store has some funky dishdasha’s available including the iDishdasha pictured above. They are all Saudi styled dishdashas (high collar/2 buttons) so they won’t work well in Kuwait. [Link]

Thanks mocman
