These sneakers are called “What the dunk” and they are by Nike. They were originally released for $129 but now fetch over $1500 on ebay. If I paid $1500 for shoes I would wear them pretty often so the question here is how do you keep sneakers that cost $1500 from getting old and worn out? [Link]
I passed by Casio to get my new cheap retro watch and although they had literally over a hundred models, only a handful had the retro look. I ended up going with the Casio DBC-32 which is packed with features including a calculator, data storage for up to 25 names with numbers and my favorite feature, Auto Light. Basically every time I lift up my watch to see what time it is the watch lights up. I wanted to go with the simpler cheaper watches which I posted about previously but they looked really small on my wrist. My two current watches are pretty big so I needed a Casio that was as big and the calculator version was just perfect. The watch did exceed my KD5 budget since it cost KD6.100. In a weeks time I will post a review about the watch although I can already foresee some issues including the fact that the watch isn’t waterproof, its water resistant which sucks. You would think by now they would have figured out how to waterproof watches. [Link]
I was just checking Cool Hunting and noticed they were recommending a retro looking digital watch as a Christmas gift. This got me in the mood for one of those watches so tomorrow I am going to pass by Casio and check and see what watches they have under KD3. Only problem is I am trying to figure out if I should go with rubber or metal band, I am assuming the metal band might cost more then KD3, maybe KD4 or something…
I just found out about Blouzaat from Moeys blog and they have some really cool t-shirts there. They all look really funky and are all beautifully designed. You can tell they’ve put a lot of effort and thought into the designs and the result is just some really trendy looking shirts. The designers (I think they are a group) are based in Jordan and their store link says coming soon but hopefully it won’t be that long before we can start placing orders. Check out their collection, they have a ton of different designs. [Link]
I hate the sneakers that are available at Foot Locker and Athletes Foot here in Kuwait. In the past few years I don’t think I’ve even purchased any sneakers from here, I always ordered them from Amazon and other retailers online. Other than the fact that they don’t carry certain brands here, most of the retailers play it pretty safe and just get your average looking regular dull models. In the UK for example Foot Locker isn’t even counted as a trendy store for sneakers, Size?, Offspring and Foot Patrol for example all have better taste and carry funkier collections. Athletes Foot barely even exists outside of Kuwait!
One of my favorite TV shows is Entourage and one of the characters on the show is called Turtle who is a sneaker collector. That gave me the idea to also start my own sneaker collection. Its still really small but I only just started so it should grow a lot more in the coming year. You can check out some of my sneakers below.
I want these sneakers!! I saw them online for the first time yesterday and today I got some more info on them. Basically they will be sold exclusively at Offspring in the UK and thats it, no other place anywhere. Now the bigger problem is Offspring don’t have an online store just a stupid myspace page. The sneakers aren’t out yet but once they are I am sure I will figure out a way to get them. [Link]
One store I fell in love with here in London is called Size?. Size? is a sneaker store but they seem to have the coolest/funkiest collection of sneakers I have seen all in one place. Majority of the sneakers I saw today I had previously only seen on SneakerFreaker.com and DrJays.com. Now I am trying to figure out which sneaker to get, I only want to get two but I have around 10 I like. Some of the sneakers I found and liked are displayed above and below this post.
