A rare weekend that’s devoid of Jordans, Foams and Yeezys means that a whole lot of kicks should be ready to take the spotlight away, but the reality is that there really aren’t that many noteworthy kicks dropping. In fact, some like the Nike Air Force 1 Low Flyknit Multicolor are already available and ready to purchase as we speak. But the show goes on in this edition of Buy, Pass, Wait and along with the Flyknits, we’ve got Sock Darts, EQTs and a quick word on the Air Jordan 10 NYC that’s dropping in the middle of the week. No, really, it’s dropping on a Wednesday.
Nike Air Force 1 Low Flyknit Multicolor
Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: (WAIT) So if I had a hint that these were super limited and would sell out in seconds, I’d be on the Nike.com right now buying multiple pairs. But because the hype has died down and this seems to be a general release, I don’t mind waiting for a price drop along with a few other kicks that are available now.
Juan Carrillo, News: (WAIT) I really want to own a pair of the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit, and I think this is the pair I want to own. Not really sure what kind of hype the model has at this current moment, but I’m going to pass on them right now in hopes of getting them at a lower price somewhere down the line.
Andres Carrillo, News: (WAIT) What’s not to like about a multicolor Flyknit sneaker? This is such a nice looking shoe but I’m not willing to pay retail for them. Hopefully I can grab them down the line for below retail.
Renz Ofiaza, News: (WAIT) What’s not to like about a multicolor Flyknit sneaker? This is such a nice looking shoe but I’m not willing to pay retail for them. Hopefully I can grab them down the line for below retail.
SNS x adidas EQT Running Guidance 93 Gold
EIC Juan: (BUY) It’s black, white and gold all over. What’s not to love about it? It’s a soft buy because I would still need them in person and get a feel for the hue of gold but so far it’s my ideal color scheme for a silhouette that I love.
News Juan: (PASS) The all-gold look is cool, but I’m not very crazy about the model. No way I’m dropping $120 on a pair of kicks only because I like the color of them.
Andres: (PASS) Gold is a nice color, but when an entire shoe is covered in gold I get really selective on whether I buy it or not because it’s not an easy color to wear daily. I’m not a fan of the Running Guidance 93 so I’ll pass on these.
Renz: (BUY) I’m biased towards runners. I’m a fan of the silhouette in general and in this colorway, it’s pretty solid.
adidas EQT Running Support 93 Boston
EIC Juan: (GOT ‘EM) I’m a fan of the Running Support and Running Guidance. I’m never going to run in them because there’s a thing called Boost that’s light years ahead of everything else, but as casual wear they are awesome. ‘Murica…
News Juan: (WAIT) I like the colors and materials used on the model. The model itself is cool, but it’s not a silhouette I usually go for. If these were to drop way below retail, I’d consider copping. If they don’t, I’ll just enjoy the kicks from afar.
Andres: (PASS) Just like the Running Guidance 93, I’m also not a fan of the Running Support 93. This is decent colorway but it’s just not my style.
Renz: (BUY) Again, I just like runners. Aside from the theme, this colorway on the silhouette is really appealing and that gum bottom makes it even better.
Nike Sock Dart Black/White
EIC Juan:(PASS) Didn’t care for them back when they first came out and I still don’t care now. Despite the fact that the Sock Dart was a very influential shoe in retrospect, it’s the shoes that followed it that I adore. The Sock Dart was ahead of its time and over my head and I’m ok with that.
News Juan: (PASS) I’ve been eyeing a pair of Sock Darts for quite some time now. There’s a good chance I pick up my first pair sometime this Summer, but I’m going to need one with a little more color. Black/White is classic, but I’m not going for “classic” on the Sock Dart.
Andres: (WAIT) I’m still waiting patiently to pull the trigger on my first pair of Nike Sock Darts. This black and white colorway is clean and simple but I’d like something with a little more color. However if they can be mine for the right price I wouldn’t mind picking them up.
Renz: (BUY) I’m a fan of the silhouette’s minimal design and in this colorway, it’s a classic and versatile offering. Plus, it’s simple and stylish in my view.
Air Jordan 10 NYC (April 27)
EIC Juan: (PASS) They’re ersatz OVO 10s and I didn’t like the OVO 10s to begin with. It’s really bizarre to me that Jordan Brand would release these two pairs so close to each other when you know someone is going to get duped and accidentally pay the resale price for the OVO 10s and instead get these.
News Juan: (PASS) I’ve already seen the majority of Jordan 10s that make up this year’s City Pack, and it’s safe to say that this is the best looking colorway from the pack. With that being said, the shoe isn’t clean enough to make me want to drop $190 on them (whenever they end up releasing). Not a big fan of the 10s to begin with.
Andres: (PASS) None of the Air Jordan 10s from the City Pack impress me at all. I had high hopes for the Los Angeles pair but now that I’ve seen it I don’t really like it. If you missed out on the OVO 10s this NYC pair is a good consolation prize, that’s if you actually wear your sneakers of course.
Renz: (BUY) I’m all for tonal finishes. This pair is certainly versatile and perfect for everyday wear. I’m a New Yorker too so I guess I’m biased.
