nike lunar control vapor golf shoes

nike 3

nike golf shoes changed my life.  i think i’ve tried every other brand and nothing has come close to my nikes.  last season i bought a pair of fi impact nikes and they were the most comfortable golf shoe i’ve ever worn.  they’re beat to hell.  i need some new ones.  unfortunately, nike doesn’t sell the fi impacts anymore which is why i’m going to give these lunar control vapor golf shoes a whirl.  they’re on the pricier side, but they’re supposed to offer a little more support and traction which is crucial in the golf swing.  oh, and rory mcilroy wears them, so they must be good.

nike lunar control 4 golf shoes

my golf blog didn’t really take off.  i didn’t realize it at the time, but blogging about golf is pretty damn hard.  it would also be a full time job and i have a job and don’t want to lose that one.  i’m going to combine the two blogs and occasionally throw up some golf stuff on here.  i hope you don’t mind.

yesterday nike released their new lunar control golf shoe (which should be called “the rory” but whatever it’s not up to me).  i absolutely love them.  i bought a pair of lunar control 3s this summer and they are the ultimate in comfort and function.  these are apparently lighter and more comfortable with improved cleats (or spikes if you will).  they also feature an extra large swoosh across the front.  be prepared to see a lot of these when the weather gets warm.

on sale: nike tech fleece aw77 hoodie

nikehoodie

i’m not gonna lie i love a good hoodie.  i think nike makes some of the best.  recently they’ve started calling their hoodies and other fall weather gear “the tech pack.”  i don’t know what it means or why they’ve named it the tech pack, but it’s warm and comfortable and on sale.  i’m going to pick up this grey one before they run out of my size.

nike internationalist and nike air odyssey

i’ve been on a big nike kick lately.  it makes me feel like a kid again.  (side note: when i was a kid, i went through a couple of years when everything i owned had to be nike related including my school binder, backpack, etc.)  with summer now over and before i turn to boots full time, i’m going to grab a pair of nikes to rock this fall.  currently, i’m trying to decide between these two models: the internationalist and the air odyssey.  for under and around $100, you can’t go wrong here.

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.

nike free flyknit+

nikefreefly1

i need another pair of nike shoes like i need a hole in the head, but nike continues to release the coolest shoes ever, so i guess i know where my next paycheck is going.  last week, nike announced the free flyknit which is basically my two favorite nike shoes in one glorious looking sock-like shoe.  how can i resist?  they retail for $160 and are available for pre-order here.  six colorways are available; these are my favorite three.
