Just Received my first pair!

Whats up everyone! I just received my first pair of Henlee's in the mail... Don't know what wash they are though, the color code reads... INEM. (so im guessing that's it)

Anyway, I realized that I might not have any shoes that will look good with them (i haven't gotten home yet to check shoe combos).

I am fully aware of the other threads. BUT, Do any of you wear them with Jordan's or Dunks, maybe some mid Force's? I realized that that's the types of sneakers that i usually wear (Supra's too!). Ill post some picks with them on different styles for people's further ?'s about Nike's and R&R... I'm doubting that it'll be a good combo

Since jordans and dunks haven't really been covered much in previous threads I think its worth mentioning. I have a ton of sneakers and most of them do not look good with RR imo. For the most part the RR style clashes with Jordans and dunks. I have seen poeple wear RR with nike runners and it looks ok on them. I'd try the combos and just see what you like.

I think running shoes are a decent choice.
I've worn my Floyds with adidas microbounces and people have complimented me on them.

But whatever you feel looks good?

The problem for me with wearing Jordans (and I have every color of the XIs except the grey) is that all my Rocks are hemmed for shoes that lay flat. I'm a Puma, Diesel and Madden guy.

They need to be hosted on the internet. Any site hosting will do.

Sorry for the not so great of pics, they're from my iPhone.
So these are the jeans...(next time i think i should get size 33's since these are 34's and seem like they're a tiny bit too loose).
Different colored shoes(same styles) would also probably look a lot different






w/ Supra Skytop (Black Croc)


w/ Diesel Magnete Exposure Low (Black)


w/ Gourmet Cease (Lt. Grey)


w/ Nike Air Structure Triax 91


w/ Nike Dunk Hi Vandal Premium (Black/Metallic Gold)


w/ Jordan III (Flips)

Comments are more than welcome

I like the supras and diesels and jordans.
don't like the gourmet crease or dunks, and I think the air structures look terrible with them...
just my opinion though.
the diesels look the best.

personally, I'm not a fan of tucking the pantleg behind the front lip of the shoe, but that's just my style. whatever floats your boat man.

1. Right Click to copy the image link (this will look different with different browsers - I'm using google chrome).



2. Click on the image box like shown.




3. A box will pop up for you to paste the image link you copied in step 1. Either right click and paste or press "ctrl v" on your keyboard.




4. Click "OK."




5. It will now look like this on the page.




6. And.. Voila! Once you submit your thread/post, you'll have a picture instead of a link!




More asethetically pleasant and more convenient for others to auth check!

I like your kicks man! But definitely, size down next time. However, check first with icevirus' fit guide and here. Some pairs are TTS, while others can range (depending on the wash) from 1/2 to a full size larger or smaller.

^I agree with sizing down..

the thigh and the calf look a little loose.
but it might just be your personal style so you be the judge of that.

totally agree with sizing down now that I'm wearing for a little while, and the fact that they stretch a little

I agree with sizing down and I think they'd look okay since they're all pretty much monochromatic, either black or white.. but they'd look better untucked like how you wear them w/ your chucks.

This one, however,

doesn't work at all imho

As a newb, it's not my place to give advice, but I've never been good at knowing my place.
When I post pics, I just manually type the [img] , cut and paste the url/direct link of my picture, then type the [/img].
It's just quicker for me, and might work for you if you're having mac issues.

Ill try that Zena thanks.

Carol... I agree. I've never actually worn those. I just put them on and took the pic just in case a ? about R&R w/ certain Nikes (or different style sneakers that I haven't seen too much of on AF) comes up in the future. Different color Structures though might actually look alright.

And Thanks CYN for that fix

I'm kinda picky about my male styles, but imho, I don't like bulky tennis shoes with rocks. Some are ok, but for the most part I prefer nice black or brown shoes. But it's your style; you should rock your rocks however you like!
