  • Happiness Is...

    Money can't buy you happiness but, a new pair of comfy Nike retro Air shoes comes close. I prefer mesh inserts not wrinkled flat fabric on Nike Tailwind 79 and ask for more colors be manufactured in the near future. OK?

  • One of my favorites...but...

    I love this shoe. The black/white colorway is classic and goes with almost anything. My only issue is the midsole material. If you get it dirty, no amount of cleaning will remove the dirt from the midsole. Sort of a bummer...

  • Nice shoes !!!

    They are very nice shoes, i suggest you go down a half size of what you originally wear.
