Up by the bootstraps
The reason for the lack of posts is not very clear to me. But rather than waste time parsing it out, let's move on. The above shrine is in Kagurazaka, a slightly more traditional area in Tokyo.
So nothing much has changed over my absence. I have been reading, shopping and eating out as usual. Actually, one thing has changed – the weather. Each winter I contemplate getting some boots. I came close to pulling the trigger last year on some New Balance boots like this. But they were not at all comfortable. This year I started to see some nice things from Nike like this...
But they were not quite right: too bright and dark, respectively. Although I loved the shape of the second one, the Air Magma. But somehow a suede-like material on a boot just doesn't seem proper to me.
But then I saw that Nike was releasing the Air Magma in ripstop. I figured that these might be the ones for me...and, they were.
I ended up getting the tan/khaki colorway over the black because I think the color matches the shape better. Plus it looks better with jeans as seen below.
So there you have it – one of my more recent purchases. I hope to get back at this more often.
As for music, lately anything by either Rusko or Caspa has been devastating. This one is by both of them and its dope, a complete growler.
Until next time.
