1999, Hip-Hop hits Malaysian teenagers. Baseball caps, invertable basketball sleeveless and oversized jeans are adorned by many sweaty highshool kids. Do you remember this:
When I got into college, well, I suddenly lost interest in shoes. I got caught in the jeans fad and most of the shoes I bought was loafers and more boots. It its all either black or brownish, earthy colours to be exact; pretty boring actually.
And then last year, it came back to me, the bright-blue Adidas high-top. And suddenly all this excitement about high top shoes started coming back to me again, like riding on a bicycle after not being on one for a long time, the feeling of gentle wind upon your face as you glide and breezes away the trickling sweat. Refreshing.
I tried looking around for any kind of cool high-tops I can get. I'm so tired of black and brown, I wanted something with colour, something that taps into my inner kid, the satisfaction of wearing something that others might not dare to wear. Can I find something like that?
This is the Nike Dunk Hi Supreme Spark. Even the name tells you it's something. The cheezy pink leather, with the 'swoosh' in Black (leather too). The leathers are stiched on a black textured nylon, and they even add those fluorescent green to make it 'pop'. I totally love it, from the padded tounge to the ankle collar, plus the gum soles makes walking stickier so you don't feel all slippery in one of these. The special padding inside can get you walking for hours without getting tired. However, as a pair cost me RM 500, I have to be really careful in choosing when to wear these. If its raining, it stays in the house.
Supras. I get multiple orgasms just by looking at these...Damn! I must have either one , I don't really care...they all look so good!
