Remember when I said that I thought the Court Force Hi is one of Nike’s best shoes? Well, it looks like I’m an idiot. They are clearly the worst of this abomination of a pack, and the Dunks and Air Maxes aren’t much better. At least they only use two (three, if you’re being technical) and one animal prints, respectively, and exhibit some sort of unity.

These shoes are an abysmal grab bag of several features that are near-incredible individually but are offensive to all those with reasonable taste when combined.

Gore Tex? Keeps your feet dry, who can complain!
3M reflective? Hottest trend of 2007!
Patent leather? Too fresh!
Transparent sea foam green soles? Undeniable!
Blue to yellow gradients? Everyone loves them!
Rainbows? Throw a couple on there!
Red, white, and blue laces? America rules!

These shoes are the footwear equivalent of when you tried to combine EVERY SINGLE ONE of your favorite foods as a child only to find that, while individually delicious, when combined, they are gag-inducing. Good Lord, these are horrible, and I can only pray that they remain a sample forever.

Nike Premium Court Forces at Overkill Berlin

The Court Force is really growing on me as a model… I really didn’t like it at first, and I’m still not crazy about the Lows, but I feel like the Highs are one the best-looking high-top models around. I’m not sure what it is about them. I feel like the sharp stitching and layering give them a really aggressive look, and I’m always down with aggressive.

Anyway, Overkill Shop in Berlin has two new Premium Court Forces in stock, a low and a high. Both use more or less the same texture scheme, which is pretty interesting: Denim, premium leather, and crocodile or textured leather for the swoosh.

Overkill Premium Court Force Low

I gotta give the upper hand to the Highs in this case. No, not just because I generally like them more than the Lows, but because the color scheme on the Lows is rather untimely… Those are prototypical Fall/Autumn colors and it’s pretty strange to see them on a mid-Winter release. The Highs, on the other hand, would look pretty fresh year-round, but I gotta say that the blue and gray conjure up thoughts of ice and Winter… But maybe that’s just me!

Conundrum

The other day I decided that because I was tired of sitting around my house in Evergreen I would go browse about the various sneaker shops of Denver, Colorado. I hit up Emage, The 400, and Niketown. Normally checking out sneakers is an activity I enjoy very much, but this time I was faced with a difficult problem… There were 5 different pairs of shoes that I liked equally! And the contenders are…

Nike SB Premium Dunk Taxi Cab Series Bluebird

Nike SB P. Rod Green Bean

Nike Court Force Low Kameda Bros.
Nike Court Force Low Kameda Bros. Pack

Which one did I choose? None of them! For the first time in my sneaker-collecting history (which has really only been about a year), my desire not to be broke triumphed over my desire to have fresh kicks. It was a dark, dark day.

…but if The 400 still has a pair of those Court Forces in my size when I get paid I’m copping them immediately!
