It had been about a year since my last sneaker purchase. The Adidas AdiZero Feather didn’t fare well in the Taiwanese pollution, so I basically stopped wearing them. Also, they had developed a tear, which made them unsuitable for daily wear. I had gotten back some very old Converse One Star, that I had gotten out of storage last summer, which I had initially bought in Québec about 10 years ago. Since I had been very careful with them, they were still in good shape, albeit for a slight yellowing of the sole.

How much would you pay for a pair of Nike Air Mags, aka the Marty McFly shoes in Back to the Future II? I don’t know, but since Nike also patented power laces (laces that will tighten themselves), I’m expecting something big in the coming weeks on the sneaker front.

Would you ever buy Twitter or Facebook shoes? With the amount of people using these services, I’m sure that there is a market for these.

When I went sneaker shopping two weeks ago, I discovered the Asics Japan shoe line. They were specifically made for marathon runners. I was intrigued.
Let me tell you that I absolutely abhor going into a department store to find shoes⁵, even if it’s a high-end store like Sogo. In fact, don’t go to Sogo. You’ll save money by going to regular shops. For sneakers, I recommend the Gongguan area (公館站)¹, which has got at least a dozen different sneakers, carrying everything from Nike to Acupuncture².
Update: I’ve worn them for a full day and you barely notice that you are wearing any shoes. They are extremely light. I’d like to get a small scale to see how many grams they do weigh. I’m pretty happy with my purchase.
