ADIDAS® FALCON REVIEW

I was recently gifted these and decided to post them on my IG story this morning. Literally within seconds my shit started blowing up with DM’s asking me what they are and where I got them? Rather then giving my fingers a workout I decided to do a small review right here so I can answer all of you at the same time. To begin, these are the Adidas Falcon and were made infamous by Kylie Jenner, and yes, they’re a womens shoe but in black and white you would never know. Lucky for me I can fit a size 11 womens so I said fuck it, throw those in the box too. 

The shoes themselves are definitely on the “dad shoe” wave and a chunky sneaker but the weight of them is what’s so appealing. Lets face it, no matter how fire a shoe is, if the shit feels like bricks, I’m not going to wear them. The materials used are pretty decent but the reflective chrome piece is somewhat of an eye-sore in my opinion, even though today my friend said she totally loved that piece. To each is own I suppose but aside from that I really like the shoes. A few people even stopped me today and asked me what they are and another person asked me if they were unreleased Yeezy’s? The silhouette definitely has that vibe which is rumored to be the whole intention by Adidas which should be no surprise considering the success of the Wave Runner. As of now you can even get the mens answer to the Falcon with the recently released Yung-1

All in all the shoes are totally comfortable and they immediately grew on me. I’m not really a chunky-sneaker type of guy but these have made me become open minded. My only issue with them is they crease instantly. I honestly wore them casually throughout the day and by the time of me writing this, the midsole looks like I participated in a triathlon. Lastly, would I spend $100 on these? The answer is absolutely.

WE CRASHED

First of all, we would like to say sorry for our site crashing yesterday. We finally got everything back up and running a couple of hours ago thanks to the IT gods that expanded the capacity of our bandwidth and now allows more traffic to hit at once. Secondly, thank you for crashing our site! That’s fucking awesome that you guys want to check on us and see what we have when a release hits. Stay tuned as we’ll be releasing new pieces all week (and a few other surprises).

POSTERCLUB® UPDATE

We just updated our Posterclub® with favorites from the past and new options. We’ve been seeing a ton of bootleg posters all over the internet. From Grailed to Etsy to eBay, there’s a ridiculous amount of people trying to sell our images. There’s absolutely no way possible for them to duplicate the quality and printing process that we strived so hard to obtain for you guys. Unless you order from us directly, chances are you will be spending less money on something with superiorly less quality.

BRAINSTORM

Troy came by this morning so we could shoot some product and brainstorm about a Greymrkt® pop-up shop that we’ll be doing in Los Angeles and New York in the next couple of months.  We can’t wait for you guys to finally come to a physical space, feel the merchandise and buy pieces in an environment where we get to interact with you. Oh, and in case you were wondering, we just restocked our SS18 Zippo’s again.

MY PERSONAL STYLE

I get a ton of DM’s asking me to explain my personal style. If I’m going to be honest, I sort of dress like an updated or “refined” version of my Dad; which is fucking ironic since I was always so embarrassed of him when I was a kid. Weird how that works but instead of opening up a huge can of daddy issues, I’ll just break down what I’m into. 

On any given day you can always catch me wearing at least one article of vintage Harley-Davidson®. I think I do a pretty good job at curating and collecting pieces for my closet from the 70’s-90’s. It can’t just be any HD item because lets face it, some of the designs were pretty shitty but I’m way into their single-stitched tees or collaboration with Tori Richard who makes super rad camp shirts. 

As for denim, I really love how Hedi Slimane updated the Saint Laurent silhouette. I have a few pairs but they don’t necessarily hug my body yet give me space like you would wish in any successful relationship. You know? Like, love me but also admire me from afar when I need room to breathe. Acne Studios Ace denim is amongst my favorite but it takes too long for them to break into that comfort feeling that you can only get from someone who has seen you through your darkest and most joyful moments. I recently took my chances on the All Saints Cigarette cut. By far the cheapest on the spectrum of designer denim yet…. probably my most favorite fit. Cost effective and you get exactly (or even better than) what you expected. For anyone like me that loves a good skinny jean but has calves like a fucking ‘roided out body builder, these are the jeans for you. Perfect on the waist and thigh then gives you a little room on the calve and then BOOM back to skinny on the ankle. All Saints, I could kiss you guys right on the lips.

The only shoes that pretty much hit my feet these days are Hedi era Saint Laurent. I’m obsessed with the Skate shoe but can rarely find them in my size since they have long been discontinued. I also love Gucci sneakers and all white Air Force 1’s but feel they’re getting played out. I know, I know, they’re staple pieces.

My accessories are pretty much never changing. I can never leave my place without my Supreme Tunnel shades, Cartier ring and Louis Vuitton Folio iPhone case. 

So, that’s me in a nutshell. Lowbrow shit with a highbrow touch. Even when I was super young I always said I wanted to be that guy that looks like a dirtbag but is driving a Ferrari. Something tells me that’s exactly where I’m headed.
