The Converse All Stars are the first, the best, the only. When I think of sneakers, the first pair that pop into my head are the all stars. Baseball, basketball, football, running, walking, sitting, sleeping-anything can be associated with these pair of shoes. This photo is related to the idea of sneakers, when someone is thinking about wanting something that is "old school, but new school, preppy but enough to wear anywhere, a pair of shoes that are comfortable, yet look sophisticated", Converse All Stars are the epitome of sneakers around the world. If I wanted to start a conversation about sneakers with someone who has lived in all the countries in the world...All Stars are the shoes to talk about.
This photo of the navy blue Converse All Stars is iconic to the subject of sneakers. Not only are they the most known shoes around the globe, but this picture is classic to the sneaker fanatics. If Converse All Stars are on a shelf, this photo would be the arrangement it would be in. The reason this photo is so popular among the millions of pairs of shoes around the world, is because they have been around for decades. The idea of sneakers IS Converse All Stars...which is why they are so iconic because of their popularity.

"Old school" is the new "new school", and the original Adidas superstars are what's hot. Since the day these kicks were out on the market in the glory days of hip-hop, rappers, mc's, and ballers across the country had at least 3 pairs of these in their collection. Run DMC was the group that really adopted the superstars and still rock them today as well as millions of people around the globe. The simple, yet fresh look of these kicks make them the universal sneaker-rockable on the court, in the streets, or on the runway, the "A-dI-dAz" as Rev Run calls them are whats up. If you consider yourself a collector, and these are not in your closet, you need a closer look on your status my friend!
Running has been around forever. Ever since man found out he could use two legs and muscles-running has been a part of life. The New Balance Zip 8505's are a stylish pair of running sneakers that allow for the ultimate forgiveness in any terrain. Although the ankle support is at a minimum with the heel being so high, the cushioning is phenomenal and sleek-looking which tends to make the ladies flock (at least that's the effect of my NB Zips). So go out and buy yourself a pair and stop looking like you are so out of the loop!!!
Last week's blog focus was on the new SB Dunks by Nike. This week we are going retro. The Jordan Retro series of shoes are hot these days. Their old school look synergized with the new school comfort are at the top of the market. Specifically, the Jordan Retro V (aka 5'z) are the latest crave around the world. Websites are popping up like crazy trying to sell these kicks for profit. Custom color patterns are available. I can almost grantee that while walking down the streets of any somewhat large city, you will see these shoes more than once.
