Day 25/366 – Chris on Soul Phase Crew in his Nike Free Run+ 2’s.

Name: Chris

Hometown: Merced, CA / Now living in: Portland, OR.

Works at: Journeys. Fan of kicks!

Favorite quote: “If you want it, get it.”

He may very well be the ‘baddest’ bboy on the Soul Phase Crew.

Kicks on his feet: Nike Free Run+ 2

Testing mode: Chris has been breaking in these Nike Free’s for 8 months now; he’s going to continue testing them out for 2-3+ months.

What he likes so far: mesh upper offers great breathability and fits tight to the foot. They are flexible and very light (ex: helps with fast footwork).

The one caveat: they don’t offer much support on the sides or tip of the shoe. Makes total sense because they are a running shoe.

Ultimate sneaker thus far: Nike Blazer SB with a suede upper. Suede is the perfect middle ground between mesh and leather. Leather stretches and gets sweaty.

Interesting thoughts here for bboys (and bgirls)…I wonder what a Nike Blazer would look like with a Nike Free outsole? Hmm.

Thanks for the insight, Chris! Check out his: Tumblr page.
