Sneaker Freaker x M.S.

January 3, 2009


I got a mention in Sneaker Freaker’s best of the best list this year. I’ve gotten a lot of love for my DC Remix, but I didn’t feel right saying “my shoe was great” hahaha (Thanks to Kim and Pam for understanding!). So I picked my other favorite sneaker for this year.

Check it out here:

Happy New Year

  5. ShadowerLiltani on January 5, 2009 at 9:33 am

    Those are hot shoes. I don’t blame you, I don’t like being put on the spot like that about my art or projects either. Maybe it’s just the angle of the photo, but geeze, you look really tired… Oh, I heard Tools of the Trade a couple of days ago. God, that song is hilarious. How did you keep a straight face doing the British voice?

  6. blancaJimenez on January 5, 2009 at 9:22 am

    K rock! pssss yo quiero unos tenis tuyos, justo como esos que tienes en las manos 😦 jajaja los tendré, lo sé hahaha xDD
    bueno mike, espero que tengas el mejor de los aΓ±os, justo ahora…
    see you in the future!

  7. Stee1baby on January 5, 2009 at 9:15 am

    Happy New Year, dear Mike!)

  8. rockermeg on January 5, 2009 at 8:15 am

    Haha, yeah that would seem a little big-headed even though it was great!
    Woooow they look like SHARKS!!! Are they meant to look like sharks or is my imagination running wild…again?
    I think the big Nike tick sorta ruins it :-/ (stupid Nike)
    Happy new year!!

  9. Shinoda77 on January 5, 2009 at 7:40 am

    where have you been for 3 days huh hahaha you’re so cute πŸ˜€ yes your shoe was really great, even greater than the shoe you’re holding in that pic and yes it was the greatest ever πŸ˜€ woo and i have to say that’s a hot pic! πŸ˜€ i’m melting xD Love you darling, xoxo
    Have a nice week

  10. Romeo4wheels on January 5, 2009 at 5:07 am

    @NILLP, hi Italian girl, long time no see huh? What blow your ass around here ?

    Apparently He looks real Old and Exhausted…maybe he got very tired from knockin’ up a baby into ANNA belly…do you think so huh?

    Keep you bitchy ass shut would be preferable, Thanks

  11. YuN_RoCks on January 5, 2009 at 4:13 am

    always nice and altruist huh? coolest picture and shoes by the way! have a great 2009 you too πŸ˜€

  12. soyuneik on January 5, 2009 at 1:52 am

    When I first saw these I imagined them being like pumps. You pump the wings out and fly the fuck around. Air Skates…

  13. nillp on January 4, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    even if that would have sounded a little selfish, you should have said that your dc remix was the best.. since it’s the truth! o/

    but yeah.. i think you did the right thing.. this one is pretty great too.. (:

    Romeo4wheels, i’ve been looking to this pic for a several time and i wouldn’t say that “he looks real OLD now”.. on the contrary, i’d say that he’s reinvigorated and looks better than never!

    anyway. happy new year to all (:

    have a great week. see ya’

    mk’nil :*

  14. lynndarwinharris on January 4, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    I’ve seen these before and each time I see something different about them. so much detail! Wonderfully artistic shoe! Does not overdo it, perfection. Have a good Afternoon!

  15. ThePrincess on January 4, 2009 at 6:28 pm

    There you go …. THE ‘ MIRACLE’ HAS RETURNED …Honey that is a STUNNING Sneakers , a same like THE PERSON who holds it .. ..Oh….A Great new year gift…..for me !!!

  21. tpbarbosa on January 4, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Those shoes look awesome! Really cool design, the colours, the drawings aroundm everything fits perfectly. Unfortanely it doesn’t look like a thing for a girl to use =/.
    Well, Mike you look a bit angry/upset, I hope it was just the photo.

  26. MartaH on January 4, 2009 at 11:58 am

    hi mike! wow so cool that shoes!! however I prefer your DC shoes and it’s a pity that in italy we can’t find them, like ve’cel clothing… so I decided to come to california in august!! πŸ˜€ I wish you an happy new year!! (for estelwen: mike can’t stop war all alone.. he sings and plays… what can he do? same things you can do, I think..) kisses for my cute mike πŸ™‚

  27. Lynnie on January 4, 2009 at 11:52 am

    Nice one.
    I won’t pretend to be interested, but if it means something to you then good for you. (That sounds meaner than I intended, sorry)
    Happy new year to you, too, Shoe Man.
    I could kick myself, too – my local ‘Qube’ shop was closing down and they were selling some DC shoes with your name on the label. They were 70% off and I thought ‘wait until next week to see if I have enough money’… and I missed out, didn’t I? ~Gutted~
    That’ll teach me to always be ‘safe’.

  28. LykwidNyetro on January 4, 2009 at 11:13 am

    hey mike!! ur shoes are da bomb man… dont be so modest ok dude… my friend ownz ur 0wnage shoes and he says they r beastly… HAPPY NEW YEAR TO U 2!!!

  29. jd317 on January 4, 2009 at 10:36 am

    That’s a bad ass shoe. You should customize the PHLY Legends Air Jordans.
    Make some LP j’s! I’ll rock them ova here in H-town! Oh and yo Mike, you need to chop and screw some LP songs. πŸ˜‰
    happy new years

    Awww Mike, you’re helping Ana from LPHQ? Thanks a lot in advance, many fans all over the world like her work m/

  34. cuz on January 4, 2009 at 8:06 am

    I liked the whole article very much. I think your choice was one of the best in it. But, you’re so modest… Your shoes are amazing, the best for me! I have a pair of PRIDE and I love them… The art is incredible and they are so comfortable.

    Was this cool photo taken recently? Because it made me think you were just after New Year’s party πŸ˜€ I love that sober look in your eyes πŸ˜‰ Happy New Year, hope it’s gonna be amazing one for you both in personal and professional life πŸ™‚

  35. Ana_ on January 4, 2009 at 7:54 am

    Very nice shoes! But don’t be modest… :p Your DC shoes are great!!! πŸ™‚

    Happy 2009 *

  36. Blaesbjerg on January 4, 2009 at 7:41 am

    Gosh! Those shoes are so cool! And you don’t even wear them that much? You have waaaay to many shoes Mike! haha πŸ˜€

  38. Wello on January 4, 2009 at 7:28 am

    Lol, you look like you just woke up and you’re kind of squinting/twitching. xD There’s only 8 pairs? Why…? 😦 Well i know they’re hand-painted but… sigh You and your practically custom shoes.

  39. Ash75 on January 4, 2009 at 7:00 am

    Whoaa….. O_O these shoes are amazing!!! I want them! (Oh, Daddy… Where are you…..? xD joke) Happy New Year Mike πŸ™‚

  40. sasummsumm on January 4, 2009 at 6:26 am

    woah i want them πŸ˜€ ❀ you have a good fashion taste i must say πŸ˜‰
    i went to a shoe shop in germany yesterday.the only sneakers that weren't boring black or brown were them:

    maybe with a little customizing…hm
    they were very cheap only about 20 euros but the orange looks cool XD
    a pitty that i haven’t got the money for shoes like this sharky ones… i just fell in love with them πŸ˜€

    take care and a happy new year to you and all round you

  41. PankakeMunky on January 4, 2009 at 6:12 am

    nice pick for your favorite shoes of this year. i think i would’ve picked something a little more flashier but those nikes defnitely do catch my eye. πŸ™‚ happy new year to you and today’s my 21st b-day so i’m just happy in general if you’re talking about shoes. haha

  42. Diana_LP_adicted on January 4, 2009 at 5:54 am

  49. Carla on January 4, 2009 at 3:50 am

    Haha, understandable that you didn’t want to say that you’re shoe was the best. I do like what you picked though! (I love the teeth and camo on it) I think I have enough pairs of sneakers anyways…naw! lol

    I’m sorry for somewhat cluttering your comment space, but I keep on punching myself for commenting on the previous entry too soon. Honestly, I was aiming to finish this drawing for Christmas, but…

    Happy New Year to everyone! Best wishes for 2009~ πŸ˜€

    Hi, Congrats Mike…. Well, your shoes was great!!! You can confess that…. πŸ˜‰ It seems 2008 was a great year for you. Best wishes for 2009!

  57. Chemist999 on January 4, 2009 at 1:34 am

  60. lp_fm_fan on January 4, 2009 at 12:53 am

    Amazing shoes! I wouldn’t mind getting those. I just got 2 pairs of DC shoes and a hoodie, they arrive soon! I can’t wait!

  61. analoggirl on January 4, 2009 at 12:23 am

    You didn’t feel comfortable pimping your own shoes. Awww. Your humility is quite endearing. πŸ˜‰

  62. LPmAgaS on January 4, 2009 at 12:10 am

    wow , awesome shoe’s . hey Mike , will you wear them in concerts??:P

  63. sterilepoon on January 4, 2009 at 12:01 am

    Those shoes are really sick. Sadly, most awesome shoes like that are trophy-shoes in my eyes, and wouldn’t ever feel pavement on their soles.

    PS. Your shoe IS great and was well worth the price.

  64. Dori on January 4, 2009 at 12:00 am

    That shoe is awesome, Mike! Good taste, man… What got me when I first saw those shoes was the sharks teeth (they look like sharks teeth from the angle you’re holding the shoes) around the thin part in front… Hope you had a nice and relaxing New Year’s! Do you ever go stir crazy when you’re off for an extended period of time, or do you find it pretty easy to keep yourself entertained?

  65. Doggie24690 on January 4, 2009 at 12:00 am

    They’re beautiful man. Absolutely beautiful.

  66. ManBearPig on January 3, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    Happy New Year! And your shoes were quite nice, I must say. Who says there’s anything wrong with a little hubris if it’s appropriate? [random: any further word on the replacement art show for the end of January yet?]

  67. CuteWhiteBunny on January 3, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    cool! happy new year to you too!

  68. AmyLynette_91 on January 3, 2009 at 11:50 pm

    nice…nice… Happy New Year 2009 to you too! All the best in everything.

    New Album!!!!! wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh! I can’t wait!!

  69. Illara on January 3, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    that sneaker! its from singapore, right? correct me if im wrong. LOL.

    i remember it. those guys are awesome.

    happy glorious new year Mike. πŸ˜€
