"Like sculpture. Very fast moving sculpture." Welcome to tonight's edition of @ogsupportgroup's #TBT Thursday. The love of sneakers begins in one's soul and ends at the sole, hence the meaning of my name. To that end, one's love of sneakers can be attributed to a specific moment, memory, or pair. My love of sneakers was officially born one fine day in 1995. While glancing out the bus window en route to school, I noticed a large billboard on the corner of Westwood and Pico across the street from the Westside Pavilion in West LA. It was very minimalistic: a white background, Nike swoosh, a random 800 phone number, and a picture of what appeared to be a sneaker, although upon initial glance, I wasn't entirely certain, however, as I had never before seen anything quite like that in my life. The silhouette was black and white with multiple bug-eyes similar to the character Baxter the Fly from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Each eye was circular and featured finely-woven, intertwining lines. I stared at the billboard and the image found on it, and it looked right back at me. It was love at first sight. The sneaker to which I am referring is the Nike Air Zoom Flight. It was at that exact moment during an ordinary morning bus ride to school that my love of sneakers was born. Every time I passed by that intersection, I'd look up at that billboard and the sneaker which it so proudly and boldly displayed. I think what attracted me to the AZF - then and now - is its simple yet progressive, forward-thinking design, its lines, contours, and those trademark, legendary bug-eyes. It was both mesmerizing and captivating and marked the first pair of sneakers that gave me that feeling. I owned a pair in the black/white colorway in the 7th grade, and enjoyed wearing them casually and on court. In time, I acquired an additional 9 DS OG pairs in 3 colorways including a signed pair by Jason Kidd. I recently drove past the Westside Pavilion and stopped at a red light at the same intersection where I was once intrigued and awestruck. While the billboard was taken down many years ago, the memory remains strong today. I'm Seth aka @souliisole and this is #MyStory. What's yours?
