I HAVE MOVED TO BLOGGER! Please visit my new site.
So here we have the Nike SB P-Rod II’s. It would make sense that Nike would bring some strong colors to the table with a new model, and that appears to be exactly what they’ve done. I’m especially feeling the White/Yellow/Blue/ Red/Gray (!) ones pictured above. Now I know that I said the rainbow New Balances were ridiculous, and they still are. I think these P-Rods go just about as far as I can tolerate in terms of color, which is a very good thing. I’m much more a fan of things that are just near the edge of my comfort zone than I am things that are completely normal.
As far as the shoes in this picture go, I’m feeling the Black/Gray ones. The Green/Brown ones also look very nice, especially because of the gum sole. I’m not so sure about the Brown/Orange ones, though… Pretty boring color combination, if you ask me.
Eh. These are okay. Yeah, black and gold is a pretty classic combo, but things that are classic usually aren’t very exciting.

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 Dunk Purple Pigeon
Nike SB Dunk Taxi Cab Series Tokyo
Nike SB Premium Dunk Taxi Cab Series Bluebird
Nike SB P. Rod Green Bean
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!
