My lovely wife surprised me at Valentine’s Day dinner with my first adult pair of Nike Air Jordans. I had a pair of original Jordan hi-tops in grade school, but when high school hit and the original 3′s came out, it was a different story. I was busy buying skate shoes and always wanted another pair of Jordans, but knew that I would ruin them skating.
Now the prices have gotten way out of hand, or you need to stand on line for a pair. As an adult, I’ve often considered purchasing a pair, but haven’t for one reason or another. I’d always looked to the Spizike as the all encompassing Jordan, pulling the best features from the early pairs. So, when I expressed interest in a new release we spied in Foot Locker, Edie wasted no time.
Unfortunately (and fortunately, may the truth be told), she gave them to me without a box. In fact, if I don’t wear them outdoors within a week, Edie has threatened to return them (she did keep the box at her office). I’ll be sure to only rock them on the most perfect of days, however, to keep them crispy.
Like the Air Max 90 Infrared, I missed this pair of Wildwoods the first time around. I had just purchased a pair of ACG Wildpegs with some hi-viz flair and Spriggs scooped these. Luckily, I found a pair on eBay a few weeks back. Here they are!
Unfortunately, these Air Max 90 DQM sneakers are no longer in my possession. I sold them on eBay a year or two after having purchased them direct from the store. These were part of the original batch. Dave’s reissued them a few years later with a T-Shirt and they’ve done an Air Max 90 Current Huarache, since then.
This rendition remains my favorite and makes for a darn good Dust Bunny.
