MY DREAM SHOES! Way before COVID-19 it was early in 2020. My shoe dealer John JR Hernandez who owns @flight1eleven asked me what my “dream shoe” was. That was easy. Size 11 2019 Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Glows”. This is a super rare shoe that is made entirely of UV reactive material. The laces, mesh and soles all store and emit light. It’s unbelievable, at night they appear to be nuclear.
I love shoes, but even I have to draw the line at such an extravagant set. They’re ridiculous.
Well, as I found out, John has planned to surprise me with the shoes as a gift to wear to Epic Nerf Battle 5, he wanted me to have my dream shoes for the big day.
And then all this happened. The event was postponed.
He decided to give me the shoes anyways, still a huge surprise. In fact he quietly left them on the porch, social distancing you know. Haha.
I’m seriously in shock. They glow even more and brighter than I thought they would, see the video here where I hit them with some black light and then show what they look like in pitch black.
I don’t think I can muster the courage to wear them. Perhaps I should just save them for August.
In any case, I’m so thankful. Embarrassed really. If it had all gone to plan it would have been a cherry on top of the most epic day. I don’t deserve such a thing. Thank you John. #Yeezy#Glows#Adidas#Sneaker#Sneakerhead#Gift#DreamShoes#wow
