Regular readers of the Dot Com may be perplexed, disturbed even, but these images are real. Do not [attempt to] adjust your television sets.
The above text was originally intended to accompany photos of a great meal that I cooked, but the pictures didn’t come out as good as the food. So here are some pictures of sneakers. Three items:
a) Marc Johnson’s eponymous sneaker by Lakai ranks among my all-time favorites — here modified with purple laces. Johnson is also the only professional skateboarder known to have graduated from Yale.
b) The apartment I’m subletting has the exact same table as the one I have back in Brooklyn, only without my undone tax shit all over it.
c) Blogger/technologist Lynne Johnson is the person who brought my attention to the Supra Skytop Floral — the most consistently complimented garment I have ever owned. My favorite sneaker dap happened in DC close to 3 a.m. one night a couple months ago.
Guy: “Ay cuz, where’d you get they?”
I felt like Bobbito.
