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.

Taking their aesthetic cues from a classic 90’s footwear palette and utilising quality materials, the Footpatrol Reebok Classic High ‘On The Rocks’ is a shoe that should be represented in everyones crate. it’s surprising that the shoe was a bit of a slow burner and sadly overlooked by most….if you do see sense and realise you need a pair, you might just find a pair in your size over at FP headquarters.

The one piece of music kit I (and many others) have longed to own is the legendary Roland TB-303. If you’re lucky enough to find one, you’re looking at paying over a grand…and the likelihood is that, due to the age, it will be pretty beat up.
Roland have finally listened to fans and developed a range of updated kit based on legendary back catalogue pieces, one of which is the Aira TB-3…and it’s pretty special, so if anyone fancies buying me a belated birthday gift….. 😉
