    I think I remember someone mentioning Oki-Ni before, but it didn't come up in the search. Has anyone ever purchased from them? Some of the colorways/designs are rad - not particularly versatile, but cool.

    Better Oki-Ni link.


    I've bought from them before. Good service and no-hassle returns

    Got a pair of limited edition (whatever) adidas antelopes in bronze/orange. Fab shoes, great service. Most of the styles and models are done exclusively for them although that doesn't necessarily mean they're good... Shipping fees to the states might be outrageous though.

    Ecco Performance Pacific. Can only where them in the summer though, because of the mesh.

    I'm partial to the Nike SB line. I just picked up the Sandalwood edition of the Dunk Sb. I'll post pics sometime.

    It goes against most of my tastes in sneakers, but I just never wanted to wear allstars/shelltoes. I like adidas; I have sneakers with a similar shape (Lavers); I'm a fan of people who are fans (Run DMC); I dunno.

    The 35th anniversary editions are kinda cool (I like the Londons a lot). But in addition to being a model I don't like, the print is kinda flashy for me. It also smacks of LV-type allover logo prints. I could see a them in a display case, but not on my feet.

    I posted that Oki-ni link a while ago, but have never gone through with it. A shame, because I like these a lot, and they have my size, and they're on sale. Just don't have >$100 for kicks right now.

    Most often worn: Chuck Taylors-lows in white canvas, black leather and Magenta glitter.

    Fair mention: Jordan 3's in white. Jordan 5's in Black and white.

    Fave's but boxed more than worn: Nike Rifts origional color. Supreme Dunk 2nd edition in Orange. Dunk Brazils. Vandals in silver.

    Pretty bored with all sneakers right now, Visvim seems the most inspired.

    Where can one purchase those puma van slobbe Rudy Dasslers? Would I find them somewhere in NYC or are they internet only? I especially like the green version, they are hot!

    Right now I'm wearing a pair of White/Red Adidas Samoa ST.

    [​IMG]

    They look a bit orange in that picture but they are red.

    I'm slowly becoming a sneakerhead and will probaly be investing in some custom/limited edition Nike Air Force Ones or Adidas Superstars sometime in the near future.

    Everything they do there are supposed to be Limited Edition :p (something like 30 per design/size, I dunno)

    Anyway, at the moment I'm loving my one pair of Nike Dunks. Chuck's aren't my thing, never will be.

    Just bought a pair of these for cheap: [​IMG] I might pick up these too, but I actually prefer the reissue.

    The reissue looks a little too much like the Samoa, imo. I like the Samoa (have a couple of pairs), but the Italia had a totally different kind of charm.

    exactly. funny this was brought up since we were just having the same discussion on the mod forum I post on, about the new Italia being too Samoan.

    I find Nike Dunks to combine the best fit (I've got wide size 14 feet) without the chunkiness of say, the AF1, with quality looks in certain colors. They might not necessarily look quite as good as a lot of Adidas, but those tend to be too narrow for my feet for a comfortable fit.
