This is a new category called “MY TOP 5″ im just gona drop random shit on here that like! My Top 5 favorite things! Like if i were gona be stranded on a island and i can only take 5 of these things with me… what would it be! Or if i can only have these 5 things for the rest of my life… what would they be… shit like that! You get it right?
So being that 1 of my Top 5 things in the world is fuckin Shoes… Lets start there! Here’s MY TOP 5 Sneakers…
5. Nike SB Dunk Low “Boca Jr.”
This shoe right here incorporates everything i like in a sneaker! That Blue and Yellow colorway.. (personally i like the yellow laces on) with that Gum Bottom… GAME OVER!! If you know me than you know that Gum Bottom shit is CRACK! Got that old school Nike SB Dunk low model shit! Not that new fancy extra cushion shit on the heel… Nah! Signature Fat Tongue, Round SB Laces and the extra set of laces came in a zip loc bag! That legit Pink Box shit!
4. Air Jordan III (Black/Cement)
That Elephant Print tho… Wooooooooooooooh! This shoe is classic! Most like 11’s.. thats where all the hype is.. The 3’s have always been my shit! This was a tough one to call tho! It was a toss up between the Black/Infared 6’s or these! and im tellin you these shits right here made the list cuz of how classic these look! Fuckin game changers! elephant print on the front and back, tumbled leather and the smooth leather… Now most preffer the Nike Air logo on the back over the Jordan Jump Man on the back… but me personally, i dont give a shit! I’ll rock’em regaurdless!!
3. Nike SB Dunk High “De La Soul”
This was one of the First SB’s i ever really hunted down! This was back when cats wasnt really up on SB’s.. the hype was there but some people just didnt know where to get’em! They didnt know that SB’s used to be ONLY sold at Skate Shops… After all this is a Skate shoe, so it only made sense! I think these dropped in like 05.. maybe end of 05 or early 06.. I seen these and had NO IDEA about the background design story on’em! I just knew i was fuckin diggin them shits once i saw’em! So i asked for my size and it was sold out… only small sizes left! So i went on a fuckin mission to see who had SB accounts and who had’em! Lucked out and caught a size 10.5 for box price about 2 or 3 weeks after they dropped… And i rocked them shits till they were BEAT! hahahaa Then my foot grew and i put’em up on craigslist! and that was the last i seen… and till this day i have never found a DS Pair in a size 11 or 11.5! I know i will never pay box price again for’em but im willin to drop a few hard earned bucks on’em! But i aint paying no crazy ass FLIGHT CLUB prices.. hahahahahaaa
2. Air Jordan 1 “New Love”
Black and Yellow is one of my favorite colorways on a sneaker… Shit just goes together! Maybe its cuz im a Steeler Fan, who knows! But im a sucker for sneakers with this colorway! These dropped back in like 07 right after my birthday! I think it was like May or April and i remember hittin up the Lakewood Mall with the homie Trevor and his homegirl from the Soul2Sole crew to cop this pack! These shoes released in the Begining Moments pack.. also known as the “OLNL Pack” (Old Love New Love) it was these and a pair of Black Toe 1’s.. which were dope too! and i think Box Price was like a little over 200 for the pack! or maybe it was 200.. i dont remember! But i remember i rocked these shits DAILY! and beat them shits to death! I had to get rid of’em! and then one day me and the homie BOB the Barber hit up one of our low key Spots and I found a pair of these shits in my size for $110 BOOOOM! one of the dopest come ups in my sneaker buying life! hahahahaa! Only cuz i fuckin love this shoe! This is one that i need to keep in my collection and rotation, year round!
1. Nike Air Max 95 (Neon Yellow)
My Mutha Fuckin all time favorite shoe is…. The Neon Yellow Air Max 95… and yeah i said Yellow! Most people call’em Neon Green but its Yellow! These shits changed my life! hahahahaaa!! These shits came out in 1995 and i remember when i first saw this colorway on this shoe and i was like “that shoe is fuckin Ugly… So ugly it looks cool” and i knew i needed to have’em! But back in 95… $135 for a pair of Neon Shoes wasnt really flyin… Jordans were cool at the time and a piar of $17 high top chucks was more in my price range at the time! hahahahaaa! So to get me a pair of these took some planning and a shit load of hustling! I was slangin everything from Skateboards and skateboard parts to Lowrider bikes… I would hit the alpine village swap meet and buy all the lowrider parts to build a bike for like 75 bucks and then build that shit at home and slang it to nerds at school for 150 – 200.. Cuz kids was into Dynos and GT’s at that time and nobody knew shit about lowrider bikes! so i was on it! Then i saved up enough to catch me a pair of 95’s and a matching nike wind breaker jacket! I was stylin! until the mesh got all dirty and then them shits looked busted! hahahahahahaaa! But rocked the shit out of them shoes… Then i got older and Nike started retroing them and ever since i keep a fresh pair in my collection on ice! and i keep a couple pairs to rock!
