My Kicks II
Nike Pace Vapor II
I have always been a huge football fan, being a hardcore Manchester United supporter. So when I had to get myself proper footwear for futsal, I went with Nike. They felt better, looked better, and cleaned easier. This pair’s been responsible for some really cool goals I’ve scored and some real nifty defending when I needed to (I play right back). Just wished the ankle support wasn’t so stiff.
Converse All-Star Low
You’ve got to have a Con. Come on, it’s old school, and it’s darn cool. Of course there are rules to having a Converse. First, you have to have a pair that looks like a Converse. Second, it must not look like the fake ones (read: Northstar, Eurostar). Third, it’s got to feel like a Con. Nothing else to say, you should know how it is. *grins*
Nike 1972 Cortez Classic
As my President aged, I needed another all-white pair. An all-white pair looks great with almost everything, especially jeans (my favorite sort of pants), so I must have a pair. Since I’ve already had an AF, I decided to go for a Cortez. Sleek, smooth, and cool, it’s amazingly comfortable to walk around in. It doesn’t look good with baggy trousers though because of its narrow profile.
Adidas Superstar Anniversary Edition
Everyone’s got to have a crazy colored pair of kicks. This was inspired by a special friend of mine who had a green Cortez with red swoosh. I thought it looked absolutely appalling, but now, I think it’s fun to have a pair of quirky looking shoes. It’s pretty fun to walk in as well.
Nike Shox Bounce
Purchased: February 2007
I wasn’t happy with the T-Mac I was using during ball games, because my ankle would roll when I land. The answer was a Nike Shox. I love the absorbers underneath the ankle. I haven’t had a sprained ankle so far. It looked good, felt good, and helped me raise my game. As with any sport, the athlete is 90% and his gear is 10%. When you have a full 10% from your gear, you obviously have an edge. *smiles*
Adidas Superstar II, Adidas T-Mac. Never really liked these two.
