HideOut: a closer look
Anyhoo, I was out and about last night and earlier today. Had dinner at greenbelt 5 and stopped by HideOut, Greyone and OT after. HideOut was finally open and checked out the goods. I talked about the store and their drops before but here’s a better shot at the stuff on the store. I didn’t take pictures of all the shoes there. They also had the adidas retros and vespa collection, the puma blaze of glorys among others. Check it out:
adidas zx 90– after a solid A-ZX consortium pack from last year, adidas continues to churn a pretty solid line of ZX runners. They could’ve added this into the mix and not skip a beat. Premium leathers go with the great colorblocking, this ZX 90 is worth it.
Dunk Hi/Terminator Premiums– These are pretty fresh and staying true to the times. Hightops are in these days and these kicks will definitely help your rep wherever you may be. As I mentioned before, Nike’s applying the animal skin/print to almost anything. These dunks have the similar spots on the safaris and max1s. The Highs with blue laces are straight butter!
Gola x Christian Lacroix– When I dropped by late Feb, I was wondering which sneakers were on the top shelf. At first I thought they were Creative Recs or Vans. They were Gola collabs! I guess Gola decided to join the collab bandwagon with this line. Wow, I’ve seen Alexander McQueen (Puma) and Stella McCartney (Adidas) do sneaker lines, and now Christian Lacroix? Didn’t see that one coming. But it is a pleasant surprise. The design’s pretty detailed and whoever’s a fan of stitched design, this one’s for you. There’re a lot more colorways for this collab but I decided to take a sample so that you guys are forced to drop by the store to see them in full detail.
Nike Year of the Ox Pack- Air Max 1 and Blazer mid– Every year, Nike commemorates the Chinese year with a set of sneakers. This year, they made these quickstrikes to celebrate the year of the Ox. Pretty clean, I must say. Personally, I like the Max1s. The plastic ox at the back makes it’s even cooler. Cop these drops before they sell out!
Adidas Superstar– These pairs are part of the 60 years pack for 09. I really don’t like Superstars but these slim renditions and perfect colorways of the classic made me think otherwise. These pairs will definitely look clean and just right for any occasion.
adidas zx 500 and nike air structure triax trail 91- A couple more retro runners worth your 15/30 pay. For the zx 500, anyone who loves purple/violet would consider this pair as an option. If you’re a fan of the whole trail-version runners like the NB 575s or the Pegasus trails, this’ll fit in nicely with everything else.
I do invite you to drop by HideOut and check out these coppable sneakers. Hopefully the birth of this store alongside other sneaker specialty stores cultivate the proper sneaker culture we’ve been hoping for.
