The ill collaboration landed a little bit ago, and I was fortunate enough to have my homey in Japan hold me down. You don’t always see 3-way collaborations, but when it does happen it’s most always a hit. This one is special, hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on some other items from the release.
When it comes to sneakers, brands constantly push new and old styles in multiple color ways and materials. This happens more than I can keep up with. But when a good one hits, there’s no escaping it. That’s the feeling I had when I first saw the Adidas Alphabounce. Most people would compare the silhouette to a Yeezy or Y3, but it’s kind of in it’s own category. It’s a low running shoe, which for me means great to stand in all day when I’m on a shoot. The day they first dropped I made a b-line for Adidas, but they sold out of my size. Next, I hit up Finishline but no dice.
Normally, that feeling of not picking up something you really wanted kinda fades and you move on. A little time passed, but I couldn’t stop thinking about them. Mostly because my barber is directly across from a Finishline… The typical interest fading over time didn’t happen, let’s just say I was reminded once every 2 weeks. I finally tried a pair on and didn’t want to take them off. I either wear thin or no socks, so I’m a sucker for anything with a sock-like design. These have a super comfy feel and can easily be pulled on or off. If you’re looking for a nice affordable runner/walker, give a pair of these a try. You won’t be disappointed.
