Nismotrinidapa, correct!

Grant Hill and Scottie Pippen Uptempo. Reminds me of my secondary school days oui....fellas waiting for Fatima's Mayfair disco to showoff the latest inventory.

Les bain, me too lol!

David12, the blazers always had my respect.

The Jordan 11 from 1996 elevated some fellas into overnight generals back in school days. Playing basketball back in the days when BIG and 2PAC were still alive releasing the hits...

Youths today would never really understand the Chicago Bulls magic trio and the influence they had without the power of social media on their side.

Some other greats I want in my collection is the Air Worm Ndestrukt with the wraparound swoosh sign worn by Dennis Rodman and what has to be one of my all time favorites is the Penny Hardaway 11 (Notice the era of sneakers I'm referring to eh).

I kept some of my old Nike stocks for years until the air sole/gel rotted away and turned yellow before it cracked up so bad that if I actually walked on it, it would be broken into finer bits and pieces. With a heavy heart I threw them all away IIRC back in 2014/5.

But I've returned to this level of immaturity so I just want to pick 2 from the list above and use that in between. It's gonna be tough as you all can tell.

You went to school with brothers from the African continent?

Do tell. Which countries were they from?

Did you understand their accents?

What did you learn about African culture?

Yup. You could not walk into the house with them, especially if you suffered with "toe-jam".

You had to take them off and line them up outside until you were ready to put the obligatory "white paint" on them.

Then he started to borrow it.

Most comfortable footwear are sneakers, and safety boots (not recommended for long periods of wear). Good quality ones, though.

I'd recommend hiking sneakers, they're very comfortable on flat dry ground, but have some flamboyant colours.

If you can't wear a safety boots for 16+ hours, then it's highly likely that your safety boots is tata, the wrong fit, or size.

I remember having Bolt and Flame when the real rankers had LA Gear, British Knight and Buffalino.

Reebok and Nike were actually rare.

No I mean the waterproofing don't allow much breathability. I used to have problems with all leather shoes in school, then in ngc with safety shoes. Athletes foot like thing, but not athletes foot.

I started working on weekends in Form 4 and continued throughout my remaining high school life to Form 6. That's when I could have afforded my first real "branded" shoes. Bought a Fila in F4, a Shaq Reebok in Form 5, an Air Nomo Max in L6 and a TN Air Max in U6. The TN Air was the pinnacle for me however once I entered UWI I stopped wearing sneakers all together except for sporting activities. Since then I bought maybe two Nikes and thats more than 20 Years ago.

Now I have three sneakers two of which cost around US$20 each (RBX and Avia).

I remember my world changed in 95 when i got a beige, suede pair of Karl Kani low tops. Basketball sneaker men started looking like a bunch of plebs.

Nike Air - Air Force XXV - Gold with Blue swoosh (below). Bought it about 12 years ago. Some mildew currently on the bottom, as it resides in a box for the past few years.

Paid about TT$100.00 for it in T&T, back when Francis Fashions had an instore warehouse on Queen St.

Did not think it was genuine when I bought it for the price. Turned out to be the real thing and a steal of a deal.

Has really held up over the years.

Release date: 24/11/2007
Name: Air Force 1 Low Prem CB
Colours: Metallic Gold / Midnight Navy
Price: US$125.00

Edit: I only just found out it was designed for Charles Barkley.

Never saw the hype with them Air Force sneakers. They look like 'special shoes,' especially the pure white ones that were all the rage in the 2000s.
