Nai'Ke AF1 Boots

I have yet another red swag post. I'm excited about these custom Nike's because I've been shopping around for new motorcycle boots for a minute, and these are exactly what I've been looking for. Only ten of these are made, and mine are No. 4 of 10. Plus they're my favorite color. Randy is the genius behind the Air Force 1 and Vibram mash-up. He runs a cobbler shop out of Arizona, and is booked for months. I'm glad I got to him early. If you're not familiar with Randy The Cobbler, check him out on Instagram or his site.

Rouge Roshé

Once again. Shout out to my brother from another mother Terry for these red Nike Roshe. My red shoe collection is growing fast, I've been switching out my sneaker wardrobe to all red kicks. Its a conscious branding element I've made. Steve jobs is to black turtle necks, like Hoang is to red shoes.

Red October in November

This Thanks Giving comes with many blessings. I'm thankful to be alive, that my family and friends are all happy and well. That my brother and I started working together officially on paper. Shout outs to Playground, its been such a fun time and for allowing us to stay creative. 

Today I'm super thankful for my brother in law Terry Dang aka TDangerous. I dont care what anyone of you guys say, I'm still voting for Yeezy in 20/20. Anyways look what landed on my lap this lovely autumn day. Yup! red October in November isn't that late. Better late than never.  Happy Thanks Giving YALLLL.


  

Yeezy Taught Me

I've tried hard enough to get a hold of some Kanye's each time Nike or Adidas drops a pair. I want them so badly that I've considering buying from a reseller at a ridiculous price. I haven't done it yet, but I'll let you know when I do. For now I picked up some NIKEID Roshe's in the Yeezy dark color-way. Check them out, they're my poor man's yeezy no. 2, first ones are these Adidas.

Huarache 2015 NM LAVA

I couldn't help but to pull the trigger on these Nike Huarache 2015 NM lava. Had to pay a bit more since they're only sold in Europe, but it's well worth the bills. Its funny lately 've been buying exclusively red shoes, thinking about only rocking red shoes moving forward. I think it'll be an interesting branding element, no? 

Before the photos, here is a little fun fact for you. In the book "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall he writes about the Mexican tribe Tarahumara. The Tarahumara Indians are some of the best long distance marathoners in the world. Beyond being some of the best runners, the coolest discovery is that the thin leather slippers they run in are called Huaraches. I wonder if Nike was inspired by this? Probably not...
