It took me a while, but I eventually managed to pick up a pair of the excellent BAIT Gel Saga Phantom Lagoons. I’ve probably said it before, but anything aqua or purple always grabs my attention but if they are both included on a classic silhouette, I’m sold. Whilst this release was limited, it was produced in enough numbers to ensure that there are plenty about on the reseller market and the prices aren’t that high….if you get the chance I would recommend picking a pair up….I certainly would consider a double up if the chance comes my way.

Having faced up to the fact that I am never going to find a pair of 576TL’s in a decent condition, my size and even less likely for a realistic price, I took the plunge and tried to emulate a close approximation using the New Balance 574 custom site.
Whilst the Pacific Green colour is a little darker than Teal, I’m still pretty pleased with the result and can’t wait to give them their first outing.
Another pick up from last weeks Sneaks & Peaks event. The quality on these Burn Rubber Detroit Classic ‘Lux’ really is fantastic…the leather is really plush and the suede featured on the tongue, heel wrap and heel tab is beautifully soft and adds to the luxurious feel to the shoe.
These (and the blue/grey pair from the same pack) are a prime example of what a decent shoe should look like. Massively under rated when they dropped, they will be highly sourt in years to come…mark my words.
