This release is another good showing from Mostack as he keeps his name hot without giving any, or at least very few, interviews, letting his body of work speak for itself. His talent shines through with an ability to craft songs that will appeal to a wide audience.
The production is good with a lot of beats that will appeal to the mass audience and not just rap listeners. Each is individual but share an energy that runs through everything that helps keep the level of cohesion high. Something grittier might show a more balanced project, but the way this is constructed works very well.
The lyricism is good with Mostack showing his ability to craft intelligent and crafty bars. The way he delivers the bars makes it seem so easy and that it is effortless for him to have these great performances. Something with a little more punch might add another dimension, but he is only a success on this project.
The features are excellent and show some strong connections in rap. Each puts in a great effort that helps push the tracks toward greatness. Some more singers might bring some higher tones to this release, but the guest selection works well.
Overall, this is a strong release for Mostack who continues to go from strength to strength. if he continues in this vein, he will have mainstream hits in no time.
This shoe is stylish and eye catching as the original but the new materials make it a touch more wearable in the hotter months with its increase in breath-ability. The softer materials can help make these slightly more comfortable to wear for longer walks.
The silhouette is the famous Air Jordan 1 outline that is known the world over. The Swoosh runs all the way from the sides around the back to help the colour scheme feel fluid and make another standout point of the shoe.
The Air Jordan wings on the side help identify this as shoe royalty. The toe box is a good size so that the wearers toes don’t get crushed as you bend them while walking. The outsole has good traction as well as leaving the prints behind of the first shoe in long ongoing legacy.
Overall, this shoe will catch eyes and will never go out of style. Comfortable to wear will always be a bonus too.
Once it is worn in, this is a very comfortable pair of shoes. However up to that point they can be uncomfortable as they are of sturdy construction and need to be flexed a bit to become a bit more malleable and conform a bit more to the foot.
To start the silhouette is quite narrow to begin with so getting it on for the first time can be quite difficult. However this can be solved by loosening the laces, even though the laces can be tricky to loosen in the first place as they seem almost stuck in place. After a couple times of wearing them, this goes away a bit but they stay fairly stiff.
Even with this, when they are on, they are still comfortable and can be worn for a long time without getting sore feet. The high top is also helpful because it helps to support the ankle and is a little padded to give extra comfort. However the high top is one of the reasons the shoe can be tricky to get onto the wearer’s feet.
Overall, this is a comfortable shoe that takes some getting used to, but as a piece of Jordan Brand history coming up on its thirtieth anniversary, this could be a great buy. If your a collector, this is a must buy and if your a sneaker afficianado, the same applies.
