How many can you visit in three hours?
While wandering around a busy Soho street, my friend and I stumbled into the Asics Cloud Pop-Up shop. Not only can you try on the latest Gel Kenun.
The various colorways hang against the walls, as well as a DJ booth set up in the corner. The biggest appeal, however, are the colorful clouds hanging from the ceiling. Once you delve deeper into the room, you find an entire wall covered with clouds lighting up in similar patterns to that of lightning bolts flashing through the sky.
Behind the cloud mural, a dark room hosts photographed cloud walls and a city-covered floor. Once laying in the bean bag sofa, you peer up into a giant circular mirror that makes you feel like you’re on top of a New York building.
Visit the pop-up through the rest of the month at 63 Greene Street.
Full circle at Oculus World Trade Center.

One reason for my New York trip: I won a raffle.
Not just any drawing, but the winning ticket to my size in the triple black Supreme Nike Uptempos.
When I attempted to explain to my mom why I needed to head to the city on a Saturday morning, she didn’t quite understand why I felt the burning desire to pick up these sneakers at NikeLab in a timely manner.
It’s okay mom, maybe now you will understand. If not, it’s okay because I added these classics to my collection.
As always, #ThanksKevin for sharing my love for sneakers through your work.
