I remember a forum thread some years ago when two dudes (one Adi and one Nike heads) were arguing over which marque was the better one. The Nike guys main point was that Adi have never made a comfortable shoe……I think that guy would have to eat his words if he were to try a pair of these Adidas Ultra Boost on….BY FAR…..THE MOST….comfortable shoe I have ever worn…more so than Roshe Run/Currents/Prestos….PERIOD.

I could be accused of being biased about these, having worked with the boys at Laced for a while when I was living in Aus, but I’d like to think I’d love these just as much if they were a GR.
The Zenith is my favourite LCS model and the boys have done a really good job on these….the theme fits right in with the Brisbane sense of humour, the colour blocking and materials are great and the shape…what more could you ask for?

At last, a Nice Kicks video featuring someone of a similar age to myself and has similar views as myself on shoes. I couldn’t agree more on Patricks views on price/quality and sheer number of releases nowadays. I don’t want to come across as a grumpy old man, but it just isn’t the same as it was in my day. I miss quality shoes at reasonable prices and the feeling of hitting a mom and pop store and finding a gem.
The projection mapping “bioluminescent forest” is made by artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad.
The artists spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon “bioluminescence”. They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing magical mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing “bioluminescent forest”.

Another shoe I foolishly slept on. I personally prefer the contrasting make up of this one from the pack. I really like the contrast of the poppy red against the black/grey, and the subtle but effective use of the speckle on the mudguard sections instead of the sole is a really nice touch.

Adidas really are killing my finances this year…release after release of quality EQT colourways…the materials on these BAIT The Big Apples is amazing….I know, I know…it’s almost a cliche nowadays but they really do look amazing in person…and not a triple black huarache in sight.

If there’s one thing that annoys the older shoe connoisseur, it’s when people buy shoes just to leave them in a box on a shelf for years…..shoes are meant to be worn….straight out the box and on the feet.
