I used to be a “sneaker head”. I remember my first high-cut pair of shoes from adidas which my mother and I got in an outlet shop back in 2009. It’s the blue and orange one I’m sure you’ve seen me wear in college. I loved it!
My mother then got me a pair of Nike shoes in the same year. It was peculiar. She gave me the Andre Agassi Nike Air Tech Challenge Hybrid. It was nice, had edge, but it looked too sporty for a not-so-sporty guy like me. Still, I wore it because it was comfortable, and unique. I never managed to take a photo of it, so I grabbed an image from the NikeBlog.com.
