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?

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.

The pick of the pack so far for me. I have resigned myself to the fact that there are many things in life I will never have the chance to own, one such item is the original 35th Anniversary Superstar Vintage Footpatrols. The series dropped when I was still living in Manchester and without the means to be able to source a pair, this fact hurts every time I see someone wearing a pair. I have thought about spending a pretty penny on an eBay purchase, but would be too scared of getting stung with a fake pair…..there are many out there and by all accounts are pretty hard to spot.
This release, however was pretty easy to pick up (and still is looking at certain sites)….The superstar 80’s is my favourite shelltoe guise and burnt orange is such a good colour, with these facts in mind, it was a pretty easy decision to take the plunge and pull the trigger (with a little help from a good friend). Did someone say ‘doubleup’?

Took a couple of quick shots in between Autumn rain showers….stupidly passed on them when they launched, something I think a lot of people did. The understated nature of the colorway is something of a rarity in this day and age…especially when it comes to collaborations. Designers of the world need to take note of the fact that lessening the shock factor with dramatic colourways isn’t necessarily a bad thing…if anything, it just means that the design will maintain it’s appeal way beyond the initial hype train.

It’s a bit of lie to call these new, as I bought them well over a year ago….it’s not often that I buy a shoe and then sit on them for this long, but I have to be careful with these, I reckon they are going to be dirt magnets, and I don’t want to mess em up. The suede is buttery and the attention to detail is properly on point.

One of my biggest footwear regrets is letting go of my original Alvin Purples bought from Laced at the launch event. It’s cost me an arm and a leg, but I’ve put this regret to bed by doubling up on the re-releases….not quite the same as the re-releases are missing the R rating logo from the heal, but I can live with this small difference, just to be able to rock theses beauties again.
