I recently picked up a new pair of Vans from 2009. I was up late one night searching some of my favorite shoe styles on eBay, and I stumbled upon these. Late night eBay searching is always dangerous! I have been chilling (kinda, well...not really.) with my purchases lately, but when I saw these in my size I had to get them. I'm almost positive these were the only pair on eBay and they have been long sold out of all stores that sell Vans Vault shoes. So, basically it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, low key. The only thing I'm worried about now; is wearing them without messing them up. I'm usually not psycho about keeping my shoes clean, but the cleanliness of these Vans is what I like most about them, so I must keep them that way.
Once again ABC Columbus was a party to remember! Everybody had a ball. We have fun at every party, it's pretty simple. DON'T MISS THE NEXT ONE.
This past Saturday another Nike Air Foamposite shoe was released. I know, people are getting tired of them, BUT, these "Gym Green Foamposites are the truth!I definitely feel like they were looked over/slept on, which is completely fine with me! There weren't super long lines and multiple day campers. The colors are crazy. They change from gold to purple to a dark emerald green at some angles. The only thing I don't like about the shoe is the $220 price tag. Just last year Foamposite Pro's were retailing at $190. That's Nike for you... or maybe it's the consumer's fault for being so thirsty for Foamposites? Anyway, that's another topic. Enjoy these "Gyms"!

I'm not going to lie, originially when I saw these on the Supreme site I thought they were hideous. But, after seeing them in person, my mind completely changed. They are super clean. I think the color won me over, the red/black/creme colors go very well together. I also admire how the Campbell's soup logo is layed on the shoe. It's very pattern like. From a distance you can't even tell that it's the Campbell's soup logo, it just looks like a cool pattern. Good job Vans and Supreme. And Campbell's.
Yesterday, Cleveland held their annual sneaker showcase: Cleveland's Got Sole. This year was the 3rd edition and my first time going. It was definitely fun to finally see some of the shoes people love and idolize in person. There was so much heat in the building; quite sickening at times. I did not set up a table this go round, but next year I may have to display some of my babies. Until then, enjoy the pictures!

I went with a clean and simple fit this day. Shoes by Vans Vault (Sk8 Hi LX). Shirt by none other than the Columbus t-shirt powerhouse brand HOMAGE. And man'o'man, the triple decker club from Press Grill (High St., CO) was so good! So good it'll "make you wanna slap yo momma!".
