Top 10 + 1 Shoe Wishlist 2017

If you know The Dave, then you know I have a thing for shoes. Runs in my blood. It’s not many things better than having a collection of shoes to choose from. I love to dress, and shoes are my domain! I put together a list of shoes I plan, or would love to get my hands on. Yes I take donations lol.

[Running/Training Shoes]

Running shoes are my favorite tier of shoe. Unless we are going somewhere important I probably have on a pair. I need the following:

I remember being told a long time ago, that the Huarache is one of the most comfortable shoes ever assembled. I’ve only tried on a pair, but this color way will assure I finally purchase a pair.

Retail Price: $120

Benefits via

  • Breathable mesh upper with synthetic leather overlays for enhanced support
  • Injected unitsole midsole/outsole for cushioning, durability and minimal weight
  • Visible Nike Max Air heel unit for lightweight impact protection
  • Rubber outsole for durability and traction

What The Dave Thinks: Just look at them! Air Max 90’s are the best shoes in American history. Comfy as well

Retail Price: $120





☝🏾☝🏾 These are sexy no?

East Coast shoe store, Packer Shoes has teamed up with Adidas to release their own: Packer Shoes x adidas NMD Primeknit collaboration. Using a classic color palette that was a prominent fixture in much of the brand’s ’80s and ’90s sportswear output.

Retail Price: $180

Adidas NMD XR1 Triple Black


If a picture says a thousand words, should I not say another peep?

Well, I like to talk. Plus these shoes are a bit of a mystery. I’ve scoured the internet profusely, and believe it or not it’s hard to get a consistent price on these. It’s mostly people charging an arm and a leg on Ebay, among other sites. But I like these, and other pictures, including ones on other people’s feet, are just as attractive as they are standing alone above.

$ Depends


[Basketball Shoes]

When I was a young lad, all I ever wore were hoop shoes. With age you tend to outgrow or graduate your taste in…everything. But there are two pair of shoes that have caught my eye that I’m considering. They are as follows:


Air Jordan 4 Motorsport


I maybe owned 2 pair of J’s in my life. Never really cared for them. They represented a followers mentality, searching for significance. These pair may be the first pair in well over a decade that gave me the urge to buy. Meh, we’ll see.

Retail Price: $190



Nike Kobe XI Elite

I’ve never in my life purchased a pair of Kobe’s, but these are fly. Something about them. Sort of stealth like. Maybe it’s the clear bottom or the upper mesh, either way thievery well could end up being the only hoop shoes in my closet.

Retail Price: $200

I have a soft spot for casual shoes. I also have an affinity for Asics. Any low tops w/ a gum bottom gets a second look from me. These are versatile, and there are so many color ways to choose from. I need help picking. See the other colors here

Retail Price: $75


[Grown Men Shoes]

If you didn’t know, The Dave has reached official grown ass man age. I turn 35 in 17 days. Embrace it right? Right. So i’m finding shoe’s like the ones below, really have my attention. Funny how age and maturity mix, and change your thinking patterns. In my 20’s I hadn’t noticed this style of shoe. Not once. Now I want a closet full. Anyhow, I have no spill for the magnificence below, I’ll just let you bask in the glory that is the future of my closet.
