Again with the rain? Why, oh why? Why are you making me pull out my rain kicks way too often! Well loyal readers ...here they are in all their glory.
I got these about two years ago in Tokyo. It was actually soon after I arrived here to live...rather than just visit. I came in early Spring, and very soon I was in the midst of my first ever rainy season. I quickly realized I need some rain shoes in a hurry. In addition to that, because of box and suitcase size issues, I was able to bring a few of my sneakers with me. I was itching to rectify that situation as quickly as possible. So on one weekend in May I had a mission to find some decent kicks that could survive in the rain.
After a whole lot of looking I settled on these Nike ACGs Escapes. It took a while to find a pair that met all my requirements: style, waterproof, price, etc. They have worked well over the years. They look a little worse for the wear...but what can you do. Today I paired them with a purple sweatshirt. Not the most exciting outfit...but damn....it was raining!!!
ps. As I was doing a little research for this post I came across these kicks. A really nice colorway of the same shoe. Way nicer than mine. You just can't win'em all.
