As I really love 90s I have been trying to get these so have a bid in, but no rush.

The Georgetown 85s do look very nice!

The 85 cut running a full size small is stupid, how are the general public suppose to know this.

Honestly it just boils my **** how different shoes within same brand can vary so much on sizing. Even same models can be way out. My air max 1 curry retros fit super small, whereas a pair of AM1 IDs from a few years ago are absolutely ginormous. Could have gone a full size lower. My Clot KOD's, I ended up buying in 3 bloody sizes.

Especially when its near impossible to try on pairs.

On a side note I hit on both the red and blue BWs yesterday which I wasnt expecting.

Currently trying to make a bit of a spreadsheet of all my pairs as its hard to keep track of.

It is annoying with Nike, some I wear true to size others I need to go half up. With Air Force 1s, it's a total gamble, Jordans not so bad.

I was kicking myself the other day not literally. A pair of New unboxed orange and blue Parick Ewing sneakers showed up on ebay 35 quid Buy It Now plus 5 pounds postage. They looked so nice and had a wide fit. I hesitated buying them because I wasn't sure but I wish I had bought them now. A pair of used ones went for nearly 100 pounds and there are not many of them on ebay. I missed out on one hell of a bargain.


Edit: I just remembered I've got a nice pair of Nike Jordan's I bought back in 2020 and barely wore them. On one of the shoes the soul is peeling off from the back of the shoe and I've tried re-gluing it but nothing is working. I've tried many types of glue even "shoe glue" and that didn't work either. Any recommendations on what glue to use?

I was down in Queenstown NZ a couple of weeks ago and went into a sports shop, they had a wall full of Patrick Ewings, they've been re-released :D

I'd be surprised if it was only in NZ!

I hardly look in the stores anymore because there always way to expensive, I get all mine on the auction site for a fraction of the price. Sometimes certain sports stores might have a sale on with a few good things. Patrick Ewing sneakers are expensive as they are so any in a store would be way out of my price range. I just love the wide fit and the shape of those sneakers.

My light fusion reds didn't I made a loss on them when I decided I needed the space. I quite liked them too.

These I'm not so sure, they might just go back.

I lost £1 selling them on stockx so I guess someone paid over retail. Mad really but I assume engagement on snkrs is some sort of a plus, I'd love early access again.

Come to think of it I can't remember what I had it on before...

I'll have to dig out all my Nike sneakers sometime. I have a pair from 1989 in good condition.
