1989 Nike Air Delta Force - made in Thailand

 A Sunday goodie from the SQ archive 
This is a quite recent pickup and apart from the flakey top of the tongue these are in immaculate, 
soft and wearable condition.
Can’t wait to rock them.

Vintage vs Retro - 1985 OG Nike Terminator vs. 2022 retro Nike Terminator high

In 1985 the most popular and successful basketball college teams where equipped with their 
own colourway in Nike’s “be true to your school” campaign, except the Georgetown Stonewalls 
aka Hoyas. 
They had just won the national Championship the year before and where on top of their game 
so Nike honoured this special team with a new show inspired by the Nike Legend but in 
their team colours blue and grey. As a special make up for the team Nike added the ‘Hoyas’ 
lettering on the heel. The shoes released to the public featured Nike lettering on the heel instead.

BTW the name Hoyas stems from the term “Hoya Sexa” which translates to “what Rocks”. 
A cheer that was started from Latin students and stuck with the team. 
Over all this 2022 retro of one of my most favourite shoes could have been excellent with a 
better choice of leather and a bit more concern for original shapes, but is a good alternative 
for anyone not owning the OG in my opinion.
What do you think?

Nike Air Jordan I metallic signed by Tinker Hatfield

Back in 2006 Tinker Hatfield and Michael came to Berlin for a press conference at the local 
I was there to see the two legends and I also had a pair of OG Jordan 1 Metallics hoping to 
get them signed by Michael afterwards.
Unfortunately Mike left the building as soon as the conference was over but Tinker stuck 
around for a chat so I had the chance to meet the legend. 
He was giving an interview infront of an installation with many classic Jordan models while 
I waited to introduce myself. 
During the interview he mentioned the first Jordan and talked about some details on the shoe. 
The Interviewer did not quite understand what he meant and so Tinker asked if anyone 
had a Jordan 1 on their feet to show.
Nobody replied so I whipped out my Vintage pair and gave it to him for further description. 
His eyes lit up as he said „wow you got the special ones“ and as he continued talking he 
signed the shoes.
As soon as he finished the interview he turned to me and asked me where I got those gems 
from. We chatted for a few minutes, even got to take a picture together before he had to 
get on to his next appointment.

New sneaker auctions at Sotheby's

the hand-cobbled 1972 Nike Moon Shoe 

An 'interesting' development and more proof that the sneaker craze is not going anywhere 
soon except everywhere.
