Wore my ugly sweaters today and some dude that worked in a shoe store asked me what Jordans I'm wearing. Huh? Do your research.

Reorganizing and putting some shoes away for storage. Thought while a lot of pairs were out that it'd be a good time to take a shot of my favorite 10 SBs in my collection. Lots of sentimentality with some of these, I remember getting Shanghai 2s and Voorhees as a kid and scrubbing them clean after each wear lol.
grew out of my Shanghai 2's a few years ago. that was sad moment for me. it's almost like they don't exist in my size (9) for a reasonable price.

Let’s make a deal. You GIVE me all these shoes. I’ll sell them, and pay off the rest of my mortgage. In return, you can officially be my new best friend...deal?

I'm going to repeat this because no one else has really seemed to care - this is a photoshop of the jason low stock image from flight club.

based614 based614 bold of you to buy a custom without seeing an actual product image. Hope you don't get screwed.
Yeah I knew it was a risk, but it’s a 3 months preorder so hopefully he puts some excellent craftsmanship into em lol, he does good work on his previous stuff so I have confidence... we shall see in February and I will share my joy or my disappointment.

My grandpa lives in Queens so ever since I was young we would go to a Dim Sum place near him to eat. Wore my Shanghais to dozens of those lunches loll. Was always thinking of grabbing a second pair but felt sentimentally was better to rock with this single pair.

Hahah yeah that's me and yeah they are

Anybody with Ben-Gs? How’s the leather on them?
The leather is good IMO. There can be inconsistencies with how deeply embossed some parts are, as is the case with my pair, but it’s not that big of a deal IMO, and the leather is still pretty good regardless. Not soft az leather, but not plasticy.

I'm assuming the Viotechs got pushed back like everything else? IIRC they were supposed to be a December release, but it's been quiet regarding leaks and info.

he must have missed that part of sneaker history training for his retail job about dunks that were never sold where he works. still unacceptable smh.
I can’t tell if you’re trolling or not...but these dudes are likely getting paid minimum wage and have a very limited knowledge of “sneaker culture”...do you get mad at mcdonald’s if the dude flipping burgers doesn’t know how to properly cook a filet mignon?

Maybe he's new and trying to learn. Hopefully you politely schooled him.
Yeah I told the dude they were dunks.

I worked at a music store when there were music stores around. I didn't work there because I knew the top 20 billboard hits. I wanted and had to know every type of music genre; jazz, blues, easy listening, hard rock, even classical and I mainly listened to rap and r&b. Because of the knowledge I gained from learning about all these other types of music, I knew more about artists I would have never known about and I gained an appreciation for them. Now if I came in there looking for runners, don't be pointing to me some Air Max 270s or Reacts coz they just came out.

My belief is that you should have at least a minimal understanding of your field of work.

I don't expect you to be able to tell me every single model and all the tech specs and collab info. But you should at least have a basic understanding of different models.

I would expect that someone who works in a store such as Footlocker has some level of appreciation for shoes. And if you don't know....just don't say anything. Just say "nice shoes" and keep it moving.
