I think everyone had a "Darrin Hudson" in their lives. Darrin Hudson was in my high school, back in Marlboro, NJ. You know, that person that you had to one-up all the time. Didn't matter what it was: Gear, hair, grades, sports, whatever...it was ON. Well for Darrin and I...it was kicks. Plain and simple. Oddly enough, in a school with over 1000 kids, me and him were the only 2 really into sneakers back then. This is my blog dedicated to Darrin. This is to tell Darrin that I'm still out there, and if he wants to battle, here it is son!! Bring it!! I've since lost touch with Darrin, but thanks to him, you all get to check out the kicks I have amassed over the years. So it is here, that I will archive every pair of shoes I own. It’ll include detailed photos, a grading system, a little tidbit behind each one and every single one will be available for purchase. (Simply POST A COMMENT with your offer). Some other little goodies sprinkled throughout also. Even if I updated a different shoe every week, it would take me about 3 years to complete this project. So sit back and enjoy! The project begins January 1st, 2006...

NEVER STOP EXPLORING. (or Shopping)


Just picked up this sick coat from North Face Japan. My friend Shinji gave it to me as a gift. They make shit America will never see in its wildest dreams. I actually picked up 2 coats but the other one doesn't photograph well cuz it's all black and stealthy. This one is denim Gortex 3 Layer XCR. Denim Goretex! The cut is also really good. Perfect for when you want to go flashing people but don't want the wind riding up your you know what.


Also got hooked with these joints. FC from Nike Japan blessed me. Foot Patrol AM 90s (niiiiiice), Stussy Court Force (doooope), and seamless AF1s for GFV. (saaaaved). I am now officially certified in unfolding and compressing Nike boxes for air transportation. If all else fails in my life, I can go to Vietnam and just fold up and assemble Nike boxes all day. Yay.

-Somehow, I think that may entail a pay cut?

Not sure the price on the jacket. It was a gift. But i think in the neighborhood of $500.

I hear what you mean about North face making dumb shit but this jacket is sick...and if nothing else, its pure innovation.

That jacket is THE SHIT. I have some friends in Japan and wanted to see if they might be able to pick one up for me. Do you think you might be able to email me where they got it? or at least the style number?

Thanks, love the site...especially all the Japan entries as of late.

Cheers,
