Day Five: You can only take one pair of sneakers into 2019…
[*] I’ll go along with using “sneaker” for purposes of this challenge. But I am Midwestern. Repeated use of “sneaker” feels as unnatural as calling pop “soda.”
Confession: I like dudes who like kicks more than I like kicks.
When it comes to my footwear, I’m too minimalist and frugal to have a sneaker habit. I own three pair: black Air Max 90s that serve as my workout shoes; black Huaraches that I wore to a Sneakerball last year; and the pair I can’t live without.
I received this pair of Adidas Court Pro Js from a fashionable friend when I asked to borrow a pair of fly kicks. “These are you,” she said. “Classic colors–old school hip-hop feel.” She was right.
Later when I struggled to give them back, she said “Girl, I have plenty of shoes. Keep them.”
I rock them with t-shirts and jeans. I rock them with blazers. With button ups. To sporting events. To brunch. On Halloween that year I went to work as Ice Cube.
Wouldn’t do 2019 without ’em.
