Hommewrk x Saucony Understood The Assignment*

I may not hesitate to call much a “current favorite”, but bestowing gold medals is not something that I do nearly as lightly. In sneakers especially, a lot of dots have to connect for me to deem it a number one, and because my process is different and almost entirely guided my by heartguts, sometimesContinue reading “Hommewrk x Saucony Understood The Assignment*”

From Infinity to Infinity

I don’t claim to know what goes on behind closed brand doors, and as I am neither notable individual, nor am I designer, I don’t intend to ever find out.

Air Force 1 Mids Forever

Written by DeeDee Collins, they/them/theirs I’m not sure if “You never forget your first pair.” is a saying, but obviously you’ve never been an 80’s Baby in your early 40’s. Lucky you. Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that I don’t remember when I got my first pair of Air Force 1 Mids,Continue reading “Air Force 1 Mids Forever”
