Bees n’ Honey.
For those that didn’t know:
Ventilators will always have a special place in my heart.
I just overall like the shape and materials.
Since I went empty handed with today’s releases by Nike (Jordan 4 Laser)
I got these really easy, even days after release there was still a full-size-run available.
Compared by Nike-standards this would be a ‘fail’.
I like that not everybody likes the Ventilator,
that makes getting them that much easier.
I actually don’t quite understand why these weren’t hyped more…
If you look at it:
Decent colorway, great materials, thoughtful and quite reasonable tagging by SNS,
be it the honeycomb on the tongue, the bee added to the Hexalite-logo on the heel or the simple black on black stitching of ‘SNS’ on the side of the heel…
Just all around a decent classic.
If you think of the Wu-Tang ‘Killabees’ it has another context as well.
Maybe it will rise price-wise in the aftermarket, but that will take a while as these were no instant sell-out.
I am happy getting these and with the price in mind I won’t regret them soon.
I think it is another example for hype & quality are not always on the same page…
Got them today and I love them.
They are done really well. The materials seem superior, even the laces (which are superb) have special tips.
And the inside is made of leather, which gives it a nice touch.
I even got a small portion of the honey which the first buyers got. Guess I was fast.
I only encountered one flaw:
The chinese kid sewing the tongue must’ve had a bad day…
Edges this crooked are usually a good sign for fake pairs. 🙂
But I guess we forgive other brands so much, we can overlook that.
If you like it and don’t care about the hype (or missing thereof)
these are really good and won’t break the bank.
Get it if you rather have a collab with a good idea than a flashy one.
Don’t get it if it is too boring for you.
It is an us 7.
