    It sure is!

    I was pretty confused when I saw in IG that the YS site was under maintenance then comments saying they’re on queue, so I immediately jumped in. Was in the waiting room for about an hour (using my iPhone) then decided to get to the macbook as well. After 20 minutes i got to the size selection page, I can’t believe it! Got payment declined 3x for my size (8.5US) then tried for a 9 instead and my Amex went thru.

    I used Stackry as a US address as mine definitely won’t work. I’m counting this as a belated bday present! :D

    This friend is a demon. Showed me his shoe collection and I am stumped. Would like to know where he got his shoeboxes though ;)

    I'd also like to know how other Muggers store their shoes.

    On Facebook, I keep seeing ads of Hi-Top shoe boxes, P250 for the white one, and P200 for the black one. I wonder if these will last, and if they're good quality. Has anyone tried them? I love the ones at Muji, but if I'll buy those, I'd rather buy a Dyson Vacuum Cleaner then :ROFLMAO:

    Don’t bother. They’re flimsy and the edges easily break. The snap enclosures are unaligned and some don’t close properly. I bought 20 pairs of those, and only 11 now are in use, the rest I threw away because of those issues above. One of the biggest peeves is that some of these boxes don’t have the exact dimensions so you may get six boxes aligned and one slightly longer or smaller. Thumbs done.

    My friend has better shoeboxes as you can see up there. Am waiting for him to tell me where he got them.

    Since we're in the topic of storage, (I'm not even supposed to visit this thread because of the demons I'm trying to avoid) how should I store my shoes to prevent the soles from getting brittle? Way back in high school, I used Jordans (10-13) for PE and I was so in love with them. I planned on keeping them long but eventually the soles became brittle and when I used them, they turned into powder. This is what's stopping me from buying shoes that I know I cannot keep on a rotation.

    I like Adidas' funny take on these outdoor shoes... from the adidas Gardening Club collection. Different name and colorway... but they still look like their Terrex shoes... but I'm not complaining. ☺️

    The adidas Consortium Response Hoverturf and the adidas Consortium Novaturbo.

    ^I tried them at Commonwealth. They actually look and feel clunkier than the Yeezy 700s, almost like the Balenciaga’s SS. Their saving grace is they’re softer on the feet, hence comfortable.

    I haven't tried any of the Yeezy's or Balenciaga's... but yeah... these adidas shoes are surprisingly soft and comfortable.

    I like the first one! Love the colorway. I'm used to wearing trail shoes so this might be a good pair to have.
