Sole Phreak!

Armand Sunday, July 26, 2009
Early this year I've been going on a shoe buying frenzy. I used to buy 2-3 pairs a year but this year alone (the past 5 months) I've already bought 12 pairs! And Its all thanks to my ex-colleague. This guy is a shoe freak. Don't get me wrong, I love shoes as much as the next guy but my friend here he takes the cake. He has to date, own 30 pairs of sneakers.

Every other day he would be on some shoe website looking thru all the latest sneakers. I was sitting beside him in the office so eventually i took up the same habit as well. Next thing you know we're swapping sneaker stories and sharing the latest kick pics.

The first pair I bought this year is the Nike Prestige II SL. I wasn't much of a Nike fan before this, having only owned a pair of their tennis shoes line. And I've always wanted to get a pair of Air Force One's but never had the moolah to splurge on them. So when I saw this on the shelves it was love at first sole. I didn't even hesitate to get them. It was like look, try and buy. I haven't stopped buying shoes since then.

So yeah now I am officially a sneaker freak. Like my comic and toy collection ain't enough now I'm collecting sneakers. I need to make more money...

Suits Me


Its super duper hard to get 1:6 clothing here in Malaysia. Its even harder to get a decent looking suit so when XL was bringing in ToyMaster's 3 piece suit it was a no-brainer to get it. I went to pick up the suits and incidentally the Hot Toys' Men's Suit just arrived as well so I picked that up too.

It comes in 2 colors and 2 styles. The first one is a brown suit with a bow tie and the second one is black and a neck tie (see more photos from my previous entry here). In comparison to Hot Toys' Men's Suit, IMHO the tailoring on this one is better. The way it fits on to the figures looks natural. And bear in mind its a 3 piece so for ToyMaster to get it to fit right is pretty hard. So now I just need them to start making other items of clothing and Im all set :)!
