These look good, no one cares about gender in trainers anymore.
There's another similar colorway which is brown but men's.. I've got a bid in on stockX but haven't pulled the buy now yet!

I did pick up a couple of things though.

Those pink salts I wanted a while back.

In person, they're awesome. Really happy with them.

Then grabbed these AJ4s

Equally very nice!

I still really want those pollens too mind. Dammmit. Sitting on my hands :p

I'm fairly sure they're jordan 3s... I hit on SNKRs with them too and expecting them anyday

AJ3 Patchwork Camo! I hit them as well on SNKRS and didn't expect to. But they're really nice so I don't mind the unexpected haha but it's made me want some 4s now too. FFS this is a bad game :p
Those laces make the trainers look amazing :cool:

They came with the blacks in and some sand ones, too. I love the orange accents though and think it really sets them off with the laces.

Can't wait to give these a go.

Finally, a proper pair of trainers that the purchaser will actually wear :D

Adidas have some interesting shoes coming out. It will be interesting to see how the Takumi Sen 8 stacks up against the Nike's upcoming Streakfly

My Air Max 1 Martian Sunrise got their first trip out today, I took my first use dunk highs to the rugby the other week... they all leave the house eventually.

The main challenge for my collection is I only really leave the house to walk the dog at the moment so they'd all get wrecked immediately.

Ive put about 20 pairs up for sale today. Mostly jordans and yeezys. I pretty much just wear air max 1, 90s, 95s, dunks, and ultraboosts nowadays.

It shouldn't be this difficult to get rid of them even though you know you wont wear that pair. There's always that niggling voice saying they will be worth even more in another years time. I'm either at the stage where I need to make and climate control a storage unit or buy a container to store them all, or start slowly shifting some pairs.

Not sure whether we will see demand die off a bit or continue to surge, will be interesting over the next year or so. Going from the stock market, crypto etc, whatever I do the market will do the opposite. As is tradition.

Uk11 mostly and eBay/stockx. Everything priced pretty high for now though as I'm not in a big rush to let anything go too cheap.

Will try and dig out another 10-15 to list in the next few days. Got ea for the cool grey 11s the other day they will probably go straight up for sale.

Thinking get rid of all j1 highs and mids, maybe my 6s, and all the pairs I bought to stock and sell later and then see how I feel from there. I hear once you start you don't want to stop. Can't see myself selling off much of the air max collection but who knows.

I don't even really know how many pairs I even have, I think I stopped counting when it got over 300 a year or so ago.

Dam, my slabs are too big.

Although that is probably a good thing, if I buy any more Trainers the Mrs will kill me :D

You joke about the thick socks but I have to wear them with my wotherspoons and 350s.

In fact the yeezys are a little annoying, tts is slightly too tight, half a size up is slightly too big.

It's a first world problem I'll grant you.

And the consensus is I love them, but the laces do pinch from the very slim tongue.
But they're super grippy, fast and I get no runners toe from them.
The Takumi Sen 8 sure does look good, and I'm a big fan of lightstrike pro
But I'm curious about the Adistar for when I decided to do ultras.

Just got a pair of Hoka clifton 8's which I love, they are so comfy and will be my daily's for a long time.
Bagged myself some New Balance rc elite 2 Ldn for £135, but I'll keep those for march when I race.

Amazing! Let us know how you get on with these.

I love my NB RC elite 2's. One of the most comfortable running shoes I've had. What a bargain at £135. I do find the Nike Vaporflys slightly faster though.

I'm getting on a bit at 47, so do tend to look more into comfort than speed.
Anyway just got the rc elite 2 London, and already I adore them, so springy and lovely, I felt myself needing to go out and run for the sake of it.
But it's terrible weather, and these will be my race shoes so I'll wait until it's better.

I'm very curious about the Takumi, as they share elements with the primex only being able to compete with the things of course.
But I'll let you know what I think, soon as they come
