What I am excited about: May 2018

This is one of those months where I could literally just post 10 pics of one sneaker because I am so focused on it.

This shoe is making me eat my words in so many ways:

  1. I usually don’t like women’s only releases. Most often they are just not as strong in terms of colour blocking compared with ‘men’s’ releases.
  2. I hate extended sizing on principle and tried to avoid buying shoes that come in extended sizing.
  3. I don’t love Jordan 1s that come in non-traditional materials (patent etc.)
  4. I dislike orange (why I never really pursued the original SBB)

And here I am compiling another long Google doc spreadsheet of raffle entries to try to get a pair of women’s, extended sizing, satin Jordan 1, in orange (‘starfish’). I can’t explain why I love these but I do! I guess I am just a hypocrite or victim of the hype.

Anyway, here are a few more sneakers I am into this month:

nike mk2

Dad shoes

Nike M2K Tekno – this released already in Europe but is hopefully still coming to Canada so I can extend my collection of bulky dad-shoes that everyone ha


Nike x Atmos Curry pack – Atmos is trying to kill my wallet. I like these both a lot and obviously have no choice but to get them. The other pack releasing is the Atmos “I love Nike” pack but I don’t really like those too much. Something about the all-over print puts me off.
