DROP 2 DROP: THE VERSUS SERIES | WEEK 7 & 8

DROP 2 DROP: THE VERSUS SERIES | WEEK 7 & 8

So uh… we skipped a week. Not because of any particular reason besidesthefactthatwewereabitlazyandcaughtupwithalltheblackfridaymadnessbutheywhocares. So welcome to a double whammy (doubt the kids even know what this means) of sorts, where we merge the results of two weeks of voting into one. Let’s get going.

 

VANS MOMA LYUBOV POPOVA SK8-HI
VS
VANS MOMA VASILY KADINSKY SLIP-ON

Vans x MoMA

 

We pit the MoMAs against each other and looks to us that the SK8-HI has trumpe- err… outshined the slip-ons. A good pick actually. Applause for you.

 

NIKE AIR MAX 2090
VS
NIKE AIR MAX 90

Before we get into the results, this just has to be said: both these kicks are hella rad! Plus, how can a red and black combo ever be bad? Okay, so the results… looks like people are finally starting to accept the awesomeness of the 2090s; beating the OG 90 by 5%.

 

REEBOK ZIG KINETICAS

Reebok Zig

The Zig Kineticas really have made a name for themselves in a very short amount of time. And judging by the votes, it seems like all the colourways are equally in demand. The black colurway wins by 6% votes though.

 

NIKE SPORTSWEAR REACT VISION ESSENTIALS

Nike React Essentials

Let’s cut to the chase here – the clean white colourway was sort of an easy winner for y’all with 9% more votes. That’d be our pick too.

 

ADIDAS ZX 2K BOOSTS

adidas ZX

This battle was pretty close with the white colourway again getting ahead of the black (by only 2% here though). We bet this is because of the difference in how the midsole flaunts the two tones. Maybe that’s just us. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

NIKE AIR MAX 270 REACT ENG

VS

NIKE AIR MAX EXOSENSE

Nike Air Max Exosense

The Nike Air Max 270 React just obliterated the Exosense with a 63 to 37% win. That’s all we’re going to say.

 

NEW BALANCE 327S

New Balance 327S

We pit the beige against the black and what do you know, the black wins. Easily. You guys gotta start trying different colours man. Black is simple. Beige challenges you; not as much as purple, but it does! COME ON!

 

REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER LEGACYS

Reebok Leather Legacy

Again with the safe choices!! I thought y’all were dreamers, path-breakers, rebel- (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ *clears throat* What we mean is, don’t be shy to try something different. ┬──┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ)

 

ADIDAS ORIGINALS STREETBALL

VS

ADIDAS ORIGINALS NITEBALL

adidas Originals Streeball & Niteball

You know what, this was a difficult choice for us too. Both have some great colour combos going for one another. But looks like the Niteball edges it with a 4% advantage. Got to say, a little risqué with the colour selection this time. Guess you’re redeeming yourself. (。◕‿◕。)

 

NIKE X 3M AIR MAX 90

VS

NIKE X 3M AIR FORCE 1 ’07 LV8

Nike x 3M

A safe-ass choice. Just when we thought you’d redeemed yourself, you go on and do this. Of course, what you picked is super awesome, but we’ve been dying to see you guys go nuts with the colourways. Maybe next time. Also, you gotta stop putting us on this roller coaster of emotions. 。゜(`Д´) ゜。

 

And we’re done. Wow. This was… an experience. BRB, going to chug some almond milk. Until next time. Peace!
