Would You Wear This? Thoughts on DJ Footwear and the Yeezy Boost 350 v2



I don't pretend to know much about sneakers (or fashion in general). But the impending release of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 got my attention. Interesting design, and it made me think - is this something a dj would wear at a gig?

From a practical standpoint, it probably doesn't matter. No one sees your feet anyway when you're spinning, right? But comfort is important, and you naturally want to feel good about what you're wearing.

Back in the prime of my dj'ing career, I rocked Puma Classics - affordable, light, and cool-looking enough without trying too hard. In a heavy New England snowstorm, or if it was really wet outside, I'd go with Timberlands. And that's my basic rotation to this day.


So that tells you a little about me. As for the Yeezy Boost 350, here's my initial take - they look like hovercrafts for your feet:

And that isn't necessarily a bad thing. They seem comfortable enough, and if I was a little younger and trying to make a fashion statement, they'd be on my radar. Apparently the re-design features a new striped pattern and some extra cushioning, with an MSRP of $200.

Personally, if I were going to try the Yeezy Boost 350, I'd skip out on the v2 for now and go with an older sub-$100 model. Maybe something like this:



Kind of boring, but maybe a little more age-appropriate for a thirty-something like me who still wants to feel semi-hip.

(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You - UB40

tempo: 86 bpm the dj's take: Song #11 in session 61 (21:15): And song #3 in Episode 14 (7:39): One of the more underrated party tracks of the past few decades? Possibly. #1 song in the country when I was in middle school; get the Blockbuster Awards version for the richer intro and mixability.
