Call them what you want, sneakers, kicks, trainers – or my personal favourite, sneaks – but you can’t deny that they are things of endless variation and wondrous beauty. My personal favourites are the Nike Air Stabs which have been re-released in many new colourways, the adicolor range from 2006 – I’ve managed to get Y1 Hufs, Y2 Taro Okamotos, BL3 Toy2R, R2 Surface to Air and R3 Dark Horses and the adidas PT 76 sneak in blue.
The Stabs might just edge out all others for comfort and versatility and the perfect size is 9.5 US (8.5 UK). I’ve got three pairs but I’ve got my eye on a good few more.
Any donations are gratefully received.
