Asics Pro Court
Mita, Tokyo 2004
An oldie but a goodie. This is a cool retro of a really really really old and forgotten Asics model. It has got the suede toe and heel, all the nice insoles and padding, and a super durable chunky outsole (heavy as concrete). It was probably a mammoth waste of time for Asics to bring the Pro Court back to life, as I found it on sale for a measly 700 yen. It obviously didn’t do anything for the retailer or its customers.
These were today given to my ping pong practice partner Ghinny Lau. An awesome photo retoucher by trade, digs the Asics. Hopefully it helps him in his quest to one day be able to return my mean Shadow Serve™.
Also, if you have some time, do a search on Asics Pro Courts and see where they are going with the current generation. The new ones are simply the definition of UGLY!
I have too many shoes. Because of this I have decided to stop buying sneakers. The last purchase was black ’staple’ shoes back in April. In ode of being more responsible with my play money, this documentary will force me to actually wear the collection I have accidentally amassed. I have always claimed to only buy to wear, and NOT to collect and keep box-fresh. For as long as I can keep going, I will wear a different pair daily and post it here on our blog. New day, new pair of shoes. I think 2 months is achievable. The challenge started on July 3.
