SHORT VISIT @ GENTLEMAN'S SKATESHOP, ASCHAFFENBURG, GERMANY

Yesterday I did an absolute spontaneous visit at GENTLEMAN'S SKATESHOP in Aschaffenburg, Germany. This little nice and cozy town is just 50 km away from the Life Time Gear Central. DIRK SCHÜTT owner and founder of this so nice shop kept some JOHNNY CASH socks for me. And because of a lazy Saturday morning I put little LEVI into the orange beast and we flew over to DIRK. And for sure we will see again soon. What a great guy and what an easy atmosphere in the shop ... just good vibes. And it is a nice concept to combine some heritage stuff with some fresh and classic skateboard stuff – this works. DIRK see ya! pics LTG

Today, back to the boots. My buddy WOUTER c/o BUTTS AND SHOULDERS and LONG JOHN blog send me some pics of the new B&S boot which had its premier @ the MODEFABRIEK FAIR AMSTERDAM a few days ago. Very nice.This classic boot is made in Portugal from a natural vegetable tanned leather and it is fitted with a GOODYEAR welted construction. Look at the pics – the leather is aging so wonderful.

ADIDAS MI SUPERSTAR 80S | PERSONALIZED SNEAKER

Sometimes I don't wanna wear a boot or an oxford ... sometimes I just wanna wear a sneaker. So I am really happy that ADIDAS relaunched a lot of shoes I knew and loved when I was a young boy and a teen; f.ex. the STAN SMITH or the SUPERSTAR 80S. Some month ago I bought my 1st SUPERSTAR since 30 years. So nice to watch down to the feet: back to the eighties. I took the white blue and orange “Superstar East River Rivalry”. Because of so much comfort, a really hot summer and my love for this special sneaker I ordered one more I completely personalized my own. Just white and off white. Damn, when I took my new SUPERSTAR 80S out of the box I was really amazed! Love it! I took the white soft leather for the uppers, the 3 stripes are made of structured tumbled leather and i choose off white laces and an off white sole. The heel with the ADIDAS logo is also made in this nice soft white leather. So nice the embroidered ADIDAS logo on the tongue – very smart. The best: there is no model type at the side of the shoe where normally the SUPERSTAR type is placed – just clear. Super special: my name written at the backside of the sole with a laser – understatement! For sure this will be a new Life Time Gear piece! pics | LTG
