AshleyNerdStar’s Five Favorite Things: Sneaker Edition

I am a bit of a sneaker fanatic. So what better way to kick off this inaugural post by listing some of my favorite things than to share my love of sneakers to the world. So I picked 5 dope sneakers that will make any avid sneaker lover happy.
#1: Air Jordan 5 (Laney)
Sneaker #1(Air Jordan 5 Laney)
Released – November 2, 2013 
The dope pair of Jordans you see here above are inspired by a particular high school that one of the greatest basketball players in the history of the NBA attended. Well it may be easy to guess who it is, but Michael Jordan attended Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. According to, its been 13 years since these Royal Blue & Yellow sneaks dropped in 2000. Now you can cop these sneaks and sport them with care or add them to your ever growing Jordan collection.
#2: Nike SB Dunk Hi, Tropical Blue & University Gold 
 Sneaker #2(Nike SB Teal & Gold)
Released – August 2013 
Blue is my favorite color. All kinds of blue whether light or dark blue makes me smile. So when I saw these Tropical Blue & University Gold Nike SB Dunk Hi’s, I instantly fell in love with them. The University Gold Nike Swoosh that creates the centerpiece to the Tropical Blue suede canvas makes the sneaker highly appealing. In addition to the University Gold accents inside and on the tongue of the shoe, the color white complements the midsole (and shoe laces) very well. I would definitely be on the search to get these awesome kicks!
#3: Air Jordan 4 (Toro Bravo)
Sneaker #3 (Air Jordan 4 Toro Bravo)
Released – July 13, 2013 
Jordan 4’s are my favorite Air Jordans in my mind. Why? I guess to me they are more stylish than the others. I like 5’s as well as 6’s. I don’t know what it is about 4’s. They are just dope to me. These Fire Red, White, Black, and Cement Grey Jordan 4’s aka Toro Bravo’s would make a great addition to your sneaker family. They were just released this past July. So they are still new but can grow into a Jordan sneaker classic.
#4: Nike WMNS Dunk Sky Hi, Purple Dynasty
Sneaker #4 (Nike WMNS Hi Purple Dynasty) nike-wmns-dunk-sky-hi-purple-dynasty-06-570x425
Released – October 2013
One of my other favorite colors is purple. I have some dark purple dunks that I call, “Purple Rain.” Its true. I may make a post showing you a little bit of the cool sneaks I have. When I first saw the Nike WMNS Dunk Sky Hi Purple Dynasty sneaks, the bright purple color pulled me in. Despite the fact that these are wedge sneakers, I would actually wear them. Not a big fan of them. I am more of a non-wedge sneaker lover myself. These dunks are designed for the woman who wants to look fresh and cute all at the same time. The design of the sneakers is pretty cool. describes the design of the Purple Dynasty sneaker as “tonal black and Dark Loden pebbled with leather/suede combinations.” So ladies if you are looking for a stylish yet regal looking sneaker, the Purple Dynasty Dunk Sky Hi may be the right one for you.
#5: Air Jordan 1 – Retro High OG (Laney)
Sneaker #5 (Air Jordan 1 Retro OG Laney)
Set to be Released – November 16, 2013 
We are going back to Michael Jordan’s high school alma mater with these Air Jordan 1 Retro OG Laney High School inspired sneaks. The Royal Blue (suede) seems to pop out more as the Yellow (leather) seems to be the backdrop of this classic sneaker. You can get these cool sneaks, just in time for holidays. They are slated to be released in a couple of weeks this November.
Honorable Mention: Air Jordan 5 ‘3 Lab 5 x Versace Custom
Released – August 8, 2013
Just had to share these dope pair of kicks. These burgundy (main color) with black elephant print and gold accent custom kicks makes these Jordans to stand out from the rest. To finish off this unique design the famous Versace Medusa logo is imprinted on the heel of the sneaker.  These will make a great addition to your collection and my possibly be a covnersation starter if you sport these joints around the town.
There are more sneaker brands I like. Sorry to go all Jordan and Dunks on you. Those are my top two favs.
If you have any dope sneaks links you would like to share with me comment under the post below. Always open to see fresh new kicks!
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^.
