We sprinted to the rooftop the other day to get a few shots of the new La Galaxie sock in action. You know those times when everything just sort of aligns? The light is just right. The Air Max bubble sort of lets off one of those solar flares in the light. Well, that is what is happening here. Somehow I was able to hold off on walking around in these Air Max 90 Ice until these socks showed up.
It started out as a tumblr post. Where did these particular space shoes come from? They are wild looking and the uppers, with their ice encrusted black and white triangles are some of the best sneakers I've seen in a while. Ok, it turns out that I might have an Air Max 90 problem, but that is another story.
From there we went back to the drawing board and tried to create something that would go well with this particular shoe. Does that sound weird? Maybe, but that's cool. We were pleasantly surprised with the results. The sock is a wool base (wait for the green coolmax version coming soon). It pairs well, but doesn't have to be the exact same thing. That would just be weird. Plus, it is just a guess, but this one is going to look real good with all black kicks.
Did You Know: The Air Max - along with the Air Trainer and the Air Safari were all part of the very first Nike television advertising. Revolution was it? At least that is what it says in issue number 28 of Sneaker Freaker.
La Galaxie - who's name is derived from a long time ago - and then translated into French - also happens to look good on the bike. In case you were wondering. We tested them out the other day on a little jaunt in the sunshine. How could we not? Turns out there might be a few faces hidden within the geometric patters that play out on the sock. Intentional? Maybe not. Impressive? Totally. I have already spotted a Badger. The badger.
If you look closely you may also notice a sneak peek at something else on it's way.
New Bike Day & New Sock Day often go hand in hand.
