new balance 990
i really do like blue


these were a pretty cheap ebay purchase. at first i wasn't totally sure but gave them the benefit of the doubt and pulled the low-cost trigger. after actually seeing them in the flesh, putting the laces in and giving them their first wear, i def have no regrets.

new clydes yo!
the phonecamera doesn't do them any justice whatsoever, in real life they're much more of a minneapolis purple.


this post is somewhat similar to the white/cream/gold new balance 860 post, except with the addition of conflict and resolution.

new balance... [May. 3rd, 2008|12:54 am]

the second pair, a couple of hours after purchase


it's a tough call (because of my vast love of these) but i think these white/cream/beige/gold new balance 860s are my favourite pair of shoes that i own (and also probably ever). solid shoe, delicious colourway and excellent production quality.

the phonecamera shot doesn't really do them justice (edit: more photos here), but let me break it down for you. i am really feeling:

the crisp white fabric in the toebox
the luxurious cream suede
the understated beige (i am often anti-beige but in this context i'm feeling it) and the way it flares out at the front towards the outside of the shoe in a manner similar to antlers
the gold N, but specifically how they managed to put metallic gold on a shoe without it being tacky
the way the tongues pop (not shown in the above photo)
the nice laces

a testament to how much this pair of trainers does it for me is that it's the only pair which i own two of. i bought my first pair this time last year for a notable sum. i was at the new balance outlet store (!) with jeni a few weeks ago and saw another pair on display for $70 (yeah) but in a size 8 (no). i started rifling through heaps of boxes but it wasn't looking good because it was mostly these but then after a little while of only looking in the massive boxes, i found the white/cream/beige/gold pair in a 13. i felt like i was a pharoah surfing a slave dolphin on a massive wave down the nile - I COULD DO NO WRONG.

if i should ever be as lucky as to get the chance to do a collaboration with new balance, and they let me pick which model, it would def be the 860. the 576 is great, but i prefer the 860. they're a little bit sleeker, have the antler bits and also those ankle straps. i would most probably have a serious go at trying to make the ankle straps look as good as they do on these ventilators.

tip of the iceberg


major regrets, 1985-2007:

  • amount of time spent in my first relationship

  • spending two years with synths and an mpc and not finishing a demo

  • not biting the bullet and just spending the money to fly back to perth and see daft punk with (almost*) all the people that i miss, love and care the most about in the entire world

raggamuffin and a new pair of trainers
raggamuffin ft. my new trainers


loving this pair of shoes. they're almost as wicked as the pre-chorus synth-flourish at 1:34 in "nine lives" (aka one of my favourite tracks of the year so far and one that's also currently looking pretty good for a solid all-time placing).
