I wouldn’t call myself a sneakerhead because (THANKFULLY) I don’t have the uncontrollable impulse to buy new shoe releases on Saturdays. This is also aided by the fact that the female sneakerhead shoe game is much less prolific, and I’m not into boy shoes lol. Yes, I have a bit of a problem because I keep buying Jordans even though I have accumulated an unpractically large sneaker collection. Yes, I hate to admit that I have a pair of UNWORN AJ1’s very similar in color to this pair… but they are completely different materials, so it’s OK. I am running out of closet space though (made worse by the fact that I HAVE to keep my shoe boxes too)…
I’m not sure if it’s better or worse that I wear my shoes; it’s like I’m not a collector so I buy less and wait for sales… and yet at the same time, since I wear them, I can’t re-sell either. Anyway, here some pictures of my new AJ1s that just came in the mail. I got them on sale from Karmaloop - scoreeeeee.
Ugh. I love them so much. Honestly, the only reason why I don’t wear my sneakers as much as I want is because I get lazy about putting on socks. Like, really. I guess when you’re used to wearing flip flops all the time, you notice the extra effort LOL.
Random side note, I can’t wait for summer and next year when I finally get to bring my car up to school (living in LA really BLOWS when you don’t have a car).
Reason #1 is for food - I can finally drive out of the Westwood area to go eat at all the places I’ve been meaning to try. I also want to be able to drive down to OC for Vietnamese food - I’m having serious withdrawals here in west LA :(
Reason #2 is for shopping - when I was at Berkeley for undergrad, I used to just hop on BART all the time to go shopping in SF on Powell St. and Union Square (where they have a 3-story Forever 21, 2-story H&M, and a Sanrio store. GAH I MISS THE BAY). Like a true Hello Kitty head, I really miss going to the Sanrio store… LOL. I just really want to to drive down to Japantown, where I can eat ramen, mochi, and shop at Mitsuwa and the Sanrio store ^_^ hehe. There are also some really dope sneaker stores in LA that I’ve been wanting to check out. So far, the best place I’ve been to was Blends in OC (read my Yelp review here), and I think they have a DTLA location.
Anyway, I guess that’s it for now! I’m still in the middle of my comprehensive exams :( but I’m just ten days away from FREEDOM! :D
