Staff Picks June 23, 2016 July 23 2016, 0 Comments

We are proud to announce that once a week, Padded Room team members will be choosing a shoe that they think is "hot". For our first entry we've got a diverse mix of sneakers that will definitely turn heads. 

Bo's pick: Adidas NMD R1 "Triple White"


 Honestly this is an easy choice because the NMD runner is as fresh as it gets, nothing beats all white shoes in the summer and I've got to hand it to the brand with the three stripes for delivering exactly what the people need; modern look, timeless style.

Jahi's pick: Air Jordan 6 Retro "DMP Defining Moments Pack"

Given that this was my first pick ever for this blog it sort of felt like a defining moment in my Padded Room career, with that in mind the choice became almost too easy, it also helped that DMP 6's are already a really awesome shoe. They've got great materials, a unique Colorway, and to top it all off, they come in that beautiful golden box.

Alex's pick:  LeBron 9 "Christmas"

I thought these were dope when they first dropped; probably because 9's are my favorite # Lebron. But now that King James is the reigning champion once again, I feel that these deserve a proper tribute. And don't let the "Christmas" theme fool you, red sneakers are practically a tradition for summertime Chi!

Ben's Pick: Air Jordan 12 Retro "French Blue"

Coming from someone who rarely laces up Jordans, the French blue 12s are definitely special.  White and Blue anything is a welcomed change from the red and black Jordans that usually dominate the release calander (don't get me wrong, flu games are cold too!).
