air jordan 1 retro high “barons”

jpbaron

much to the chagrin of (some) friends and family and various readers of to take the train, i am a big fan of air jordans.  the 1’s and the 3’s are my favorites.  i bought a pair of air jordan 3 retro “infrareds” a couple of months back and took some pretty harsh criticism from those around me.  i ended up returning them (frowny face).

i get it.  they’re not necessarily “me” or my particular style – which is one reason i like them so much.  the other reason i’m into air jordans is because they remind me of my childhood.  i remember wearing the 1’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s and 6’s.  i skipped the 2’s.  i still don’t care for them.

after jabari parker was drafted by the bucks last week, he threw out the first pitch at a milwaukee brewers game and was wearing a pair of air jordan 1 retro high “barons.”  the color motif is a nod to jordan’s minor league baseball days with the birmingham barons.  right now these are at the top of my “to cop” list.  i’m a sucker for grey sneakers.  i was in las vegas when they dropped and slept through my phone alarm (damn it!).  the next time i have an extra $200 lying around i know where it’s going.  in the meantime, i can admire these through various pictures on the internet.  oh, and i wish jabari parker a long and successful career in the nba (not that he reads this blog, but i figured i might as well throw that in there.  i liked watching him at duke).

weekend kicks: nike air max 1

airmax1

for the last year or so, my go-to weekend kicks have been nike air max 1s.  they are one of my all-time favorite sneakers and the best part is that you can find them pretty much anywhere.  you don’t have to spend months looking for a pair to match your style (i’m looking at you air jordan 3).  there are plenty of colorways available like the grey / red air max 1 premiums you see above (and below).  i’m not sure when they drop, but i will be copping a pair.  for more info, click here.
