I like a bit of old school but I'm not sure how much I like these.

Think they could look really good with certain outfits though.

I can fit in a 6.5 so will only cost me £100 as well. How do the 6's usually fit? I am usually a 7 in Adidas originals, 6.5 would fit fine, 6 is a squeeze. Basically I buy 6.5, 7 and 7.5 Adidas originals.

You're similar to me.

I am a UK7 in all Adidas, however some of the recent Nikes have come oversized to me. At least 0.5 a size oversized too.

I have a comparison shot showing 2017/2018+ AM1 vs the earlier ones in the same size and its really odd how much difference there is. So you'll easily be fine sizing down 0.5 a size.

I'll see if I can dig the pic out.

They've re-released a few times over the years (with various small detail changes) OG, 2000, 2014 and now 2019. It'll be one of the best releases of the year they always are.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't they drop somewhere a few weeks ago. I'm undecided if I'll enter for these. They seem to be priced quite low on StockX compared to other upcoming releases which makes me think it might be worth waiting and seeing if values tank when they drop. I would like a pair just not sure the best way to go about buying - I don't want to get stuck with multiple pairs with no return or resale options.

Like those. All the colour variants of these are a bargain at the moment

Been looking at these lately thinking I quite like them.

My original ‘91 Jordan VIs.

When investigating a loft conversion I found them buried away. I got them out and promptly whole chunks of the midsole just turned to dust between my fingers - the dark beige-y parts.

For some daft reason thinking I’d never get such a nice Xmas present from my parents again, I got them a couple of sizes too big, believing I’d grow into them smile



It’s sort of strange remembering how you’re young once, really, really wanting something like a pair of Jordan VIs, getting them, then all these years later that very same item is revered by so many as a classic item to own. A bit like a Tamiya Hornet radio controlled car. Some things just manage to stay in vogue.

Anyway...I clumped around in them for a year or so, until the next Xmas came and I managed to convince my mum to open her wallet again and therefore had me some brand new Jordan VIIs! Howeversoon afterwards some scumbag kid at the school stole them, sold them on and I never saw them again frown

They were the original, “Bordeaux” ones, like these:



I remember lots of descriptive marketing at the time as to how they were design-inspired by west African tribal dress and customs etc. Even as a little kid I’m sure I thought, “...this Tinker Hatfield guy must be puffing something heavy!”

Think I will hold off for now. I reckon you'll be able to get them for half price in a few months. Just in time for summer. Weather not right for corduroy trainers at the moment.

Just entered the SNS from the Infrared UK6.5 £106 delivered.

Probably not a chance!

ASICS Gloucester Quays have a 30% off everything event on at the moment.

These cost me just £37.00!

New ones in tomorrow apparently so I guess I will end up with at least one more pair.

As for the Hugo Boss episode. The shoes I wanted were £94.00. Expensive but they were very good quality & comfortable.

Best £50 I've ever spent on trainers.

Leather is so soft.

There's a clue in the picture...

However, they are back up to full price again. They were half price over the weekend with the code HANON50. You could email them and say you didn't see the offer email because it went into your spam folder or something, and they may sort you out with temporary discount code.

They are called the HANON fishermans blues.

Good luck.

Yes, watch where you rest your feet when you're driving. I unwittingly scuffed up the left side toe box of my 530s, I relegated them to "kicking about" ware and bought a 2nd set.
