Ha congrats. Definitely a pair Id love to own at some point, though I've only got 1 pair of 180s, the Baroque Browns, and they haven't been worn yet.

Similar happened to me with the denham 90s last week.
Im definitely going to have to go and remove some bids until after Christmas.

The sell off is going ok so far with jordan 11 jubilees, jordan 1 university blues and jordan 4 shimmers going this week.

I've already officially run out of space and about to cover a wall in another room with shelves...

The fragment and clot sacais are the latest additions but since this pic I've also added the OG colour of air max pre days and pollen jordan 1s which arrived yesterday.

Hoping to get the grey clot sacais this weekend!

Still very keen to add silver bullet 97s and the original colour of air max 180 to round out my early air max OG colourway collection.. bit of an obsession obviously.


where did you buy the cabinet from?

Got the denham 90s at retail on launch.

You've prompted me to do the same actually and selling 2 pairs of 1s, 1 dunk and a pair of ASICS I really shouldn't have bought.

It's custom, I got a carpenter to make it.

Its quite therapeutic freeing up the space. Got another 18 pairs listed and will maybe do another 10 this weekend. Still trying to decide how many I want to keep and what models is difficult. ATM I can keep about 150 on my display shelves so somewhere around that would be ideal. I dont like the idea of selling air maxes but ive got quite a few older pairs not worth a huge amount just hogging space that dont get worn.

Wish the shimmers were my size!
Yeah me 2 I would have quite liked a pair in mens 11. I grabbed a pair in my Mrs size. You know just on the offchance she may actually like or wear them. Nope. Cant really think of a less offensive pair ha.

My Takumi Sen 8 have arrived, and so far looks good
They feel like a lighter, more cushioned not to mention faster shoe, when compared to my Adios 6.
Can't wait to see what they go like, they feel quick.
The heel counter, really sucks your foot in.

Not to mention, they are ridiculously breathable, you can see straight through them.

Looks a serious bit of kit :cool:

They certainly look weapons grade.
Did my evening run in my hoka clifton 8, but my quads ached badly
might just be my not running for a few days.

If I feel fine tomorrow, I'll use them on the Parkrun.

Will I went ahead and did the Parkrun, no idea why but I felt fine to do it, despite suffering last night.
I guess I'll need to find a better way of warming up.
Anyhoo the shoes.....
Omg, these things are a weapon, I felt so quick in them it was unreal, my legs could really stretch out. I had to force myself to slow down on the downhill sections, as I felt myself losing control.

Cornering is an interesting, if not unstable affair but this was on muddy forrest trails.
Like all plated shoes, when you push they push back, better propulsion than my speed 2's.

Cushioning is good, and if you're built like a breadstick, you could get away with a half.

My only gripe is the lacing, there's no eyelets as such, so they grip all the time when lacing but fortunately I only had to loosen the first couple in order to get in or out.
Grip is typical Adidas, very good given the conditions they faced.
So yeah very highly recommended.

Can't wait to try my rc elite 2's when the weather clears up.

So I screwed up a bit and somehow hit on 7 pairs of the 450 resin...

Didnt realise these would A brick so hard and B, that id entered so many raffles. Stupid way to drain the bank account a week before Xmas.

Looks like the whole family are getting yeezys regardless of size.
