My friend Eugene from Sydney visited us two weeks ago. My best friend Tri and I took him out for dinner and wanted to show him around. He already did that during the day. I actually still think it is very funny if someone from another country really loves ours. Especially when it comes to Amsterdam. they do not know it and I understand that but I have never had it that I was in love with Amsterdam. Not even when I first visited when I was 17.
So this was also the case with Eugene. he had walked so many miles all day that after dinner, he thought it would be nice to just have a tea somewhere instead. What he did want were some shots of me and my new kicks, and I definitely wouldn’t say no to that. “can you do a classic careaux jump”
What do you think of them? I loved the 700 since they first day I saw them. The design is well-thought off. It actually feels like they wanted to put effort in it, this is something I appreciate. The first colorway wasn’t really my style and I kept waiting for something else, not knowing this “Analog” colour would be the one.
Pricewise? Mweh.. I don’t think anyone gets happy when they spend €300 on a sneaker, which is white and super fragile for dirt.. but is it worth it.. I don’t have an opinion. I think yes but my wallet says no. It’s a bit double. What I think that’s good: sell sneakers you never wear before buying a pair like this. It’s a win win!
Eventually when we left the cafe after a nice tea and a great catch up and chitty chat about the past 3 years that we hadn’t seen each other, we decided to take an Uber to the KAWS piece which is located randomly in a shopping mall in Amsterdam. No joke. I said I was going to touch it. And I did. And it’s not allowed. I’m such a bad asssssss.
Where to cop these kicks?
I think they are still available at some places. I got mine from MAHA. But if you want to be sure, StockX always has something. Check it out when you can!
