I don’t pretend to understand sneaker culture, and rarely indulge in buying shoes for any other reason than that they look and fit good. But there are a few designs I hold dear, shoes I used to wear a lot or that just remind me of growing up. One shoe in particular is Adidas’ Rod Laver, I used to wear the white/greens all the time. Sort of burnt out on them (if that’s possible) so I don’t currently own a pair. I came across these new "Laver Classics" on Zappos today, but of course, they are out of stock. Guess I’ll have to actually venture out of the house to find them, perhaps one of the billion boutique shoe stores up on Haight Street will have them. Anyways, these are amazing, can’t wait to score a pair.

Their named after a famous Australian tennis player ^___^
Very cool shoe, and I’m a bit fussy in that department

I really like the off white mesh/light blue. Can you, by any chance, post the link in Zappos where you found these – cause I can’t seem to find them. If you have time that is. Classic shoe. Thanks.

I think Run DMC was selling some of their Adidas on Ebay a while ago… Not something you’ll find on Zappos, that’s for sure.

It’s all about the Jack Purcells! Those are my forever-dear shoes. I totally know what your getting at with this post. Good to know Scott’s got his classic sneaker!

great choice of shoe…I have a similar pair and I’m also a avid Stan Smith buyer as well.
