Recently I just went on a trip with my brother and his friend to New Orleans. Passed up a trip with the store to Vegas by the way too. But I’ve done Vegas enough times and only been to New Orleans once before.
I always spend at least a couple hours going back and forth between what shoes I should bring for vacationing. I ended up just wearing the white Adidas Ultra Boost. I really love the comfort of the Ultra Boosts for travelling, I just really need to find a black or grey pair. White shoes are really my go-to but after wearing them once they are already dirty as hell.
Bourbon street was too wild for me as the last time I was there I spent most of my time on Bourbon street. Cool vibe but I can’t party like that anymore. Frenchmen was definitely more my speed for nightlife and the live music was amazing. The food scene alone in New Orleans is worth travelling for, too many to name.
Sneaker wise there wasn’t many shops that I could find. Didn’t find any consignment shops even when I googled it. I came across a shop called “LIVE” that sold high end sneakers like Raf Simons and Y-3 but I’m not really into that. Right next to it was a retail shop that reminded me of the store BAIT. Had a good selection of runners like Asics and New Balances, plus a good selection of clothing. I did see a guy wearing Tan Yeezys on the swamp tour but he looked like a tourist. Actually probably only tourists go on the swamp tour to begin with.
New Orleans is definitely recommended to visit; I am for sure coming back some day. Thanks NOLA!
Side note: Funny story today at the shop. I just spoke about nicknames in my last post and today a customer called in about an order he had made on our site. He ordered the “Countdown Pack” Jordan 10’s. His complaint was that he didn’t receive the other shoe that came in the pack which was supposed to be the Jordan 13’s. Yes we all know that in 2008 the Nike Air Jordan “Countdown Pack” came with TWO pairs of shoes. The two pairs of numbered Jordan’s added up to #23, Michael Jordan’s jersey number. So long story short, the customer assumed he was supposed to receive both pairs of shoes because we nicknamed the shoe “Countdown Pack”. I can see where there might be some confusion but if the pictures only show one shoe, and the prices is that low, never mind, you can’t go assuming anything nowadays.
Thanks for reading everyone! Don’t have any shoe pictures from my trip but will definitely share my food pics.
