All those who know me, know that I’m a big sneaker head. The thing about my collection is that I dont buy the hottest Jordans nor do I cop the hottest air max’s. I’m the type of collector that can look at a shoe and 10 years down the line it will be posted in a blog post such as this one, and people will say “daaamn, I remember those”.

Well although only two of these entries were in my collection, the rest brought back sort of a nostalgic feeling, reminding me of my mushroom haircut days, and playing basketball trying to do the Shawn Kemp spin off the base line…….#reflection….lol

Now in no particular order, I present to you….I Remember:

The Shawn Kemp’s. Reebok’s Kamikaze

I remember seeing them in the Slam Magazines and thought how ugly the shoes were that I wanted them so badly. Not to mention Shawn Kemp was my favorite player back then.

Maybe I havent been keeping up with kicks news, but if they haven’t yet, they need to bring these back. Like soon

The Patrick Ewing’s. If you didn’t have a pair you were non-existant. lol. I think these were a flag of New York City but on your shoes. I also think these were what birth the coolness in the color purple. (maybe not. lol)

Dikembe Mutombo’s.

Some one please educate me but did Adidas make this shoe? Cus I remember buying them at a Payless back in the day, and I know damn well Adidias’ do not sell at Payless.

I just love the tribal African inspired details. I have pics of me wearing these kicks, which I would love to show, but it would expose my mushroom hair cut.

 

Now who can forget the Magic Johnson shoes.

Plain, simple, and an instant classic.

I remember getting them, and thinking of how cool I was, cus no one had a clue in my elementary school who Magic Johnson was, and why I was wearing his shoes. Damn I was so cool.

Last but not least, we got the Grant Hill’s.

They came in the low and High tops, but in my opinion the Hightops are always cooler, that and if you got the low tops it meant you didnt have the extra 20$ to spend on the high-tops. lol

When I played in these shoes, I dont know if it was just me, but I felt like I could jump higher. ( dont judge me!!)

 

 

Well there you have it. My top 5 “I remember” shoes.

if i did leave anything out, and I know I did, pls drop me a line.  There’s like a million kicks out there!

 

enjoy
