What does a man say after finally putting his dream shoe on his feet for the first time.

…almost 40 years after watching them come out.

Initial thoughts:

1. Was really struck by the shade of red and how much darker it is then what it looks like in pictures. Almost more of a deep crimson red. Much different than the red on my Bred mids.

2. The leather isn’t blowing me away right out the box. Red toe box leather feels soft and sweet, but the black leather doesn’t seem like anything to write home about. Maybe it‘ll soften up after a few wears. But as it stands now, I like my Shadows better.

3. Glitter definitely doesn’t come off completely after a microfiber wipe down. The soft leather care brush helped a lot. But I may need to break out the wipes to get it gone. Actually not too worried about it. It kind of adds character.

Legit checkers…form like Voltron.

My nerves are on edge, so i would appreciate it if you wouldn’t mess with me. Though I guess I’d understand it if you did.

…lil Davey brings it on himself.

You got them from eBay or GOAT?

I can see a lil glitter on them. But I’ll defer to someone else on legitimacy.

I think I bought that pair from GOAT after missing out on that Saturday in 2016 (was on a road trip to Vegas).

We can’t give 2 reactions so I’ll just laugh here…

I love those mids.

And I’m not ashamed to admit it.

The kids at school love them too.

…those are my people.
I get it. I do.

It’s like the 2010s. You wanted a Rolls but didn’t have the money so you got the Chrysler 300.

Well I’m glad you got that ghost.

Beat those Black and Reds into the ground (since I don’t know what other shoes you got). Congrats.
