mryumingwu #WDYWT - Asics Gel Lyte III "Alpine Blast"

We had these as a sample at our office a few months back. I was about to help them disappear from the shipment back to Asics but I can't fit a size 9 anymore. It's probably the best general release of the year. Much #Thanks to the good people @asicstigerusa. And the airport is the only place you'll catch me wearing jogger sweats.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Nike Air Max Modular 95 SI Neon

It's a fact, I've never owned a pair of Air Max 95s. Early on they were never in my budget and I never liked the model all that much. But I've always love the application of the Neon colors. Dave White did an amazing job with the AM1 and AM90. But they were impossible to get. A month or two before these came out a friend at Nike sent me a pair and I've loved them since. This is another shoe I break out once or twice a Spring. Hopefully I'll get another 3-5 years of life out of them.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Nike Air Classic BW "USA"

I actually pulled these out two weeks ago but started a small renovation at my apt so haven't had a chance to get them on my feet. Timing wise, it worked out pretty nicely. I don't really remember when or where I got these but most likely it was on eBay and right after I got the Stash Air Classic BW. Over the last few years I've tried to wear them atleast once a Spring but this may be the last round before the soles crumble. Fingers crossed I get a few more wears out of them.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - adidas ZX Flux Lightning

When the ZX Flux was announced with the Prism colorway, I was pretty drawn to it. But I didn't have much luck finding a pair since they sold really well. Finding the Prism colorway too several months but I did get it for half the price, I'll save that for another day. I just wasn't sure I was ready to commit the other colorways yet so I basically gave up on it. A few months later, John Kim, my managing editor for Sneaker News calls and tells me Adidas Originals SoHo has the Lightning colorway for $50.00. I've worn these a good 15 times at this point.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Concepts x New Balance 997 "Rosé"

I met Rob Heppler back when he "invented" Weekly Drop (quoting his text to me). We stayed friends over the years. // I was pretty impressed by the Concepts collabs since the original Lobster Dunk SB. When the blue colorway came out I tried to ask the guy involved at the shop at the time. I never got a response unfortunately. Chatting with Rob a year or two later I told him about that experience. He introduced me to Deon Point. Through email, Deon would always tell me "got you on anything you need". With the amount of good collabs coming out of their camp I did my best not to ask. But after seeing these I emailed immediately. This may be my second favorite New Balance ever. I've been waited out the long winter to rock these with shorts.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Nike Air Max 1 "Prefontaine/Skulls"

Maybe I was just cheap or I just couldn't buy every other Air Max 1 coming out at the time. I ended up passing on these but quickly regretted it right as they cleared out. So for about two years I tried to find them for as close to retail as possible on eBay. Eventually I found both colorways pretty close to retail.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Nike Air Max 1 Supreme “Animal Pack"

My backstory.
I met Gardy in 2003/2004 while shopping at Dr Jays on 34th Street, he was a sale guys and we stuck up a conversation. I told him about Freshness and we exchanged digits. Gardy made some moves and ended at Rush Communications, Russell Simmons' company. I was asked to come in to see Run Athletics and I meet Treis there. I ran into him again when he moved to ALIFE Rivington Club and I use to hang out there a lot. It was probably 2006/2007 when these came out and ARC had them in the glass case. I knew they would be expensive but I really wanted them, the price was $175. It was a lot on my junior salary but as I pulled out my wallet to pay, Treis just handed it to me and said don’t worry about it. I was just double checking the actual name on FC and there’s a pair available for $2250.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Reebok FuryLite “Graphic” Pack

My backstory.
I liked them the minute I saw an email coming in from the Reebok PR team back in March. After a day thinking it over, I decided I needed a pair so I asked my contact to see if they had any pairs. I don't really have much room left for sneakers so now I must really like it before I add something to my collection. But a pair actually just showed up the very next day. Turned out someone already had a pair with my name on it.

mryumingwu #WDYWT - Kid Robot x Nike Air Max 1

Will try to share back stories on the stuff I wear moving forward.

My backstory.
It was early February 2005, I was still working at R/GA and one morning I get a call from my PR contact at Nike NY asking for my address. A big Kid Robot and Nike branded shoe box arrived that afternoon so I quickly shot it at the R/GA office and posted it. Kid Robot posted a few small photos but I had the exclusive detailed look on freshnessmag.com. I was also invited to the exclusive launch at Barney's and I invited my coworker Charles who scored a pair. I didn't know it then but I would come to regard these as my second favorite Air Max 1 of all time. I regret to this day for not buying that second pair at Barney's.
