Went digging in the back of the closet this weekend, and dug out some old classics I had stuck back there.

Check these Air Max inspired DC’s. I think these are about 12 years old now. Lightly worn. Shit, for a skate shoe these would be considered BNIB. Make offer :-)
These Bally’s are still some of the nicest shoes I have ever owned. Haven’t worn them in 5 years at least. Back in the day, they were all the rage in magazines like Wallpaper and Surface. Heck, I think Dwell even covered them back when it came out every two months, back before the emergence of all the Joe and Jane ModernHome people started overextending themselves on midcentury modern homes.
I have probably owned 6 pairs of Wallabees over the years – most of which were concentrated in a 1.5 year time period back when I was obsessed. I think was going through my shaggy hair, Richard Ashcroft phase back in college. My parents had the homeboy hook up – $55. Here is a pair that I never wore once. I believe the Nike-obsessed little kids would refer to these as ‘deadstock’ or as I like say… ‘douche-stock**’
** Who am I to judge… I am the douche posting my shoes on the internet.
