Nike LeBron 11 Shoes: Lighter Than Ever

The latest Nike LeBron James branded footwear has been unveiled, and it’s looking like it will be a very lightweight shoe. Previous models were a bit bulkier, which was both good and bad.

Nike Air Foamposite One Premium “Fighter Jet” Review

Sneakerhead & Air Force 1

Nike Air Force 1 Deconstruct Obsidian

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.

Stormtrooper Helmet Made from adidas Sneakers

It seems appropriate that the week that I got myself a pair of adidas adiZero Feathers, a stormtrooper helmet made completely out of adidas sneakers turns up. This helmet was created by the blogger Freehand Profit of The Hip Hop Nerd to promote StarWarsRemix.com.

Nike Air MAG Sneakers: The Full Monty

Well, I was pretty excited earlier when I read all about the new Nike Air MAGs, the Marty McFly sneakers from Back to the Future II, but now that Nike has revealed the full details about the Air MAGs, I’m sad to report that they won’t feature functional power-laces.

Nike Teases with Air Mag: Back to the Future Shoes to Become Reality?

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.

Asics Sortie Marathon Japan Duo

Asics Sortie Marathon Japan Duo

Asics Sortie Marathon Japan Duo, the color I wanted

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.
