I snagged these on the weekend at Nike Lab as well for more actual walking shoes as the Mrs and I like to go walk 3-5k most days. I love the comfort of a Lunar sole.
Just picked up another set of PUMA Vedanos in Black. Not your typical sneaker. Classy and sporty all-in-one.
07 United Gray GTI: EuroDyne Stage 2, SPEC Stage 2+ Clutch and Aluminum Lightweight Flywheel, K&N Intake, USP Downpipe, Autotech HPFP, CTS Direct Fit FMIC, Cast13 RB2s, etc.
09 Reflex Silver Rabbit: Malone Custom Stage 2, IE SRI Manifold & Intake, USP Downpipe, Techtonics Exhaust, Neuspeed Sport Springs, APR Swaybars, Rotiform DIAs, etc.
I know this thread is dead but I'm a sneakerhead who mainly collects Vans - apologies for the mess:
The bagged pair are a pair of limited edition Old Skools I picked up at one of the final "cross-country" Warped Tour dates I visited. They'll probably stay unworn.
Missing from that pic are my most special and favorite pair so far - Vans x NASA SK8-Hi MTE's:
As well as my latest pickup, UltraRange 3D's:
I'm trying to diversify: I have some Nike SB's (can't wait for the Panda Pigeon Dunks to drop!) a pair of Jordan 1 Game Royals, some Air Maxes and some Adidas along with less cool DC's and Etnies.
I'm a Vans guy though at the end of the day.
Anyone else here still in the game?

I am still buying shoes, mostly just to wear these days and in HK the market is fiercely competitive on hyped releases so not always easy. I do have 6 Nike stores in my neighbourhood to check out though, including Nike Lab so no shortage of action.
My last pickup was the React Element 87s
I really want to pick up a pair of VaporMax Utilities if I'm gonna get another pair of Nikes soon. But then again there's the black Off-White Prestos I've been drooling over... so many choices.
I pretty much wear everything, some more often than others. Waiting for the weather to clear up here before I start rotating in some of the nicer stuff again.
Yes the level of stores is pretty insane here, we also have a lot of Adidas locations and even an ExIT (high end streetwear) and Undefeated in the neighborhood so choice is a plenty, but you see so many pairs of great sneakers on the feet of people everyday.
I actually went to the Nike outlet yesterday as it turns out (about a 45 minute train ride for me) and I picked up a pair of these Nike Epic React as my Nike Lunars posted at the top of this page are starting to look pretty beat. I have wanted the pink colour for a while and they were still the regular price at Nike Lab on Sunday, but the outlet had them at 45% off so that made my day and new everyday walking shoes in the rotation.
Oh for sure, doesn't surprise me that you get to see a lot of cool sneakers there! Ugh, Undefeated...definitely gonna be a stop for me if I'm ever out west.
Nice! Love the contrast between the pink and gray! That's funny about NikeLab vs. the outlet, good thing you checked! I love the outlet, I almost picked up some Free Run 2018's as gym sneaks for a song the last time I was there, ended up getting my first pair of Huaraches to just wear around outside the gym for a good price - super comfortable kicks that look amazing. I love em.
I picked up a lot since I posted the UltraRanges - extremely comfortable btw, they're pretty much my "beater shoes for shows" at this point. Here's a few of the latest I've gotten:
(Fade) Black/Orange SK8-Hi Pro -
Shark Week x Vans SK8-Hi -
Violet Indigo/True White Old Skool -
Beater UltraBoost 4.0 True Black (so damn comfortable btw, love Boost) -
Dress Blues/Potters Clay Kyle Walker Pro -
Black/Ebony Varix WC -
Also picked up two pairs at the 25th anniversary Vans Warped celebration in Atlantic City this summer - one to rock, the other to stock.

Your favorite Ziemniak, hold the gravy.
They're Stance socks (model name: Waldorf) and are awesome...I've been meaning to get more pairs that coordinate with other shoes I have.

^^Nice, those are just fun!!
My most recent acquisitions included the Nike Zoom Vomero 5 SE SP in both the Green and Black colours. I picked up the green first at retail and after enjoying them so much (very comfortable) I was able to get the black at a good sale price.
And in a stroke of amazing luck, I was actually able to get a pair of the Sacai LDV Waffles direct from Sacai at retail. I have not worn them yet but I plan on rocking them, no reselling here.
