Part of what it means to be earth’s reigning champs of recon is that every time we set foot outside Spyplane H.Q., we keep an eye open for slappers for YOU, the beautiful & blessed members of Spy Nation, to savor. It’s… “simply what we do.”
Case in point: This past weekend we piloted the Spyplane down to Los Angeles to chop it up with good friends, linketh & buildeth with elite acquaintances, and do 360-degree INFRARED PERIMETER SWEEPS of several jawn emporiums on the lookout for fly s**t …
Unsurprisingly, we found multiple deep-cut slappers, including fantastic HOME GOODS, sick UNISEX KNIT BEANIES, unbeatable HEAVY-DUTY TOTE BAGS, rare TOUGH BIRKENSTOCKS and much more…
But FIRST OFF — imagine our delight when we found a LOW-PRICED MINIMALIST UNISEX RUNNER that, best we can tell, is only available otherwise in Japan:
Yes!! These feel a little Our Legacy … a little Boost 700 … a little Reproduction of Found … a little Payless Shoe Source ?! And the effect of that unlikely jawn-amalgam is… VERY HARD.
What were they??
