I've long been a fan of sneakers, but it wasn't until about a year or two ago when I really started stepping things up. Guess you could call them my one material vice? Anyway, a few weeks ago I received a box in the mail from a client (Adidas). Inside the box was a pair of sneakers, and the note below. As you can see, Dave knows what kind of sneakers I like, but decided to send something else. That something else was a pair of white Adidas Shell Toes. An absolute classic in every sense of the word. They gained legendary status when RUN DMC started rocking them back in the day, and haven't fallen off much in popularity at all. Regardless, they were never a shoe that I would even consider wearing. Just weren't my thing. Until last week when I read Dave's note and decided to try them on. My mind was completely changed. They felt good, and I actually liked the way they looked. Which got me thinking about Dave's statement that "it's time to evolve". Yes, he was only referring to my taste in sneakers, but that same concept can be applied to every aspect of your life. Kind of ironic considering the shoe itself has not changed since it's release in 1972. Food for thought. Thanks Dave!!
