My new kicks… this time for real

pharell/adidas mashup

Saw these on my friend Toure’s Instagram and had to have them.

So they may not be the most practical sneakers on the planet, but these Stan Smiths, designed by Pharell Williams and made out of tennis ball material, are my new sneakers of choice right about now.

I bought them at BK Wearhouse, a primarily dead stock (aka limited-edition, sort-of-like-vintage-but-never-worn) sneaker and accessories shop in central Williamsburg. It’s one of those tiny spots that you walk into and then gasp audibly while you gaze wide eyed at the idiosyncratic selection of kicks, tees, patches, backpacks, etc, that all speak directly to your inner record collector. If you find yourself over in this area, you need to check this place out. You will not be sorry.

Luckily I was in a rush, or I may have left with far more than one pair of shoes. But then again, 2016 is a new year and I live within walking distance…
