Reebok Pump Omni Lite – EXT Lux

Reebok

These new sneakers just got announced by Reebok and I think they look pretty cool. Its an interesting concept of using luxury associated materials like snakeskin in the sneakers but I can’t figure out what I could wear it with! [Link]

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]

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

Post 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

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]

What the dunk?

Post by Mark

what the dunk

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]
