What better way to get ready for the weekend than enjoying some of the best vintage kicks posted to IG last week, eh? No specific theme for now, unless you count “Heat” as one that is!
First up is a true rarity from the Herzogenaurach boys, the Adidas Torsion Advance C. Originally from the homie @lasse_rayden, they are now proudly worn by Berlinger Jung @derostenprollt, and shot by the incomparable @sneaka_flow. And do we need to point out how dope those pants are?!
Next up are some crispy Asics Gel Lyte III in a lovely green colorway presented by @nickpocket. The Gel Lyte is a classic silhouette from the Japanese brand that has an extremely loyal fan base around the globe. Rightfully so!
Ain’t no Vintage Friday complete without some good ole top-shelf trainers from Brooks. Originally found by @snkrsog (get well soon mate!), they are now cared for by @sneaka_flow! A true sight to behold, be it the wavey mid or the color accents in the upper.
A true Bok boy at heart, @fu_man_shoe presents some double trouble from the Bolton OGs in the form of the Avant Guard (1996) and the Interval II MC (1997). Feast your eyes on Hexalite-infused goodness and classic CWs.
Not all shoes can survive decades of either wear or storage. But as @gone_an shows us through the example of these Adidas RX8500, a crafty mindset can salvage many a pair. And dare I say that i prefer this mid to the OG? Oh and do yourself the favor and swipe for a holy Three Stripes Trinity that also includes @thomas_bapodo78 and @lasse_rayden in a 1994 restored ZX8000 Aqua and a lovely ZX9000 Hydra respectively.
Speaking of crafty minds, here’s one of the earliest vintage hybrids with a boost midsole courtesy of the inimitable @snkrcrps. On top of that mid is a Techstar Interval track shoe, and what an amazing combination that is!
Certainly can’t forget about the Swoosh here, now can we? No other than @ronsrareair unearthed a true grail here, the Nike Air Max 94. No longer to be worn, but still mesmerizing to look at. Not sure if these will ever be retroed, but hey one can dream!
Speaking of early 90s Nike goodness, look at what the homie @_mr_hawk_ has scoured here. A truly obscure gem, these are the 1992 Side 1 “Runwalk”, a short-lived subsidiary of the Beaverton powerhouse. These just exude vintage goodness, be it shape-wise, the materials, or the superbly understated cw on top of that exquisite mid.
Adidas’ ZX range is known for their sturdiness and longevity, and it’s not surprise that @boris_l77_vol.2’s ZX8000 from 2005 is holding up so well. Look at those pink hues in the upper, and how they contrast so well with the onyx grey mid and cage!
Last but definitely not least a wonderful New Balance x Crooked Tongues collabo on the lovely canvas that is the 576. Breathtakingly shot by Lutz aka @b_represent, one can see the genius of Gary Warnett shine through. Lost a great one with that 😢
