@KidKrampus Top Five of 2013 thus far

With half the calendar year gone and a full solid six months to go I decided to follow fellow writer @WEAVERTHEGREAT ‘s lead and put together a top five of the year so far. So lets get right to it.

Honorable Mention:

Flyknit Chukka

Air Jordan 1 Royal

BHM Nike SB Dunk Low

and

Roshes…just kidding i hate those things

 

 

5. Supreme X Nike SB Tennis Classic

I have two words for you: John McEnroe. Don’t know who that is? Go to youtube and search, I’ll wait……..See what i mean? If a shoe is good enough for Johnny Mac it’s good enough for me. All jokes aside these shoes should have had hype written all over them but for some reason it just wasn’t there. I was able to cop 3 of the 4 colorways with complete ease. However the absence of hype didn’t keep them from selling out. These are one of the cleanest summer shoes I’ve ever owned. Couldn’t narrow it down to one of the colorways so I’m putting all four at the 5 spot.

4. Kobe 8 Year of the Snake Red Suede

Theres only one reason people didn’t too much care about these kicks dropping and it starts with Lebron and ends with something that rhymes with pork. This years Kobe model has done the Black Mamba proud and this was probably the best of them. Who doesn’t love an all red sneaker?

3. Reebok Kamikaze II Mid (OG colorway)

I’d like to quote a guy a named Eddie Trask who currently has the top comment on a Shawn Kemp highlight video I have saved as a favorite on youtube “Kemp was, and will always be, the greatest in-game dunker of all time. NO ONE matched his flair, swagger, complete disregard for human life, athleticism, beastliness, etc.” I’m inclined to agree. These are stereotypical 90’s basketball shoes in the best ways possible. Definitely a time capsule in the form of a shoe and a classic in its own right.

2. Air Jordan 3 “88”

white cement blah blah nike air blah blah limited blah blah classic blah blah. This was the first must cop Jordan of the year for me and I ended up with 3 pairs.

1. Asics Gel Saga “Kill Bill”

Are they the actual model Uma Thurman wore in the movie? No. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. The only thing that could have made this shoe better is if they called in the “Game of Death” instead of the “Kill Bill”. Lets not forget that Bruce Lee was the first to don the yellow jumpsuit and kick major ass. If you’ve ever put your foot in an Onitsuka Tiger you’d know that there’s just enough rubber on that shoe to protect you from small pebbles and not much else. This was an updated take on the sneaker that Bruce Lee made classic and trust me it’s way more wearable.
