Summer is here, which means I've been doing lots of complaining about the humid, 90-degree weather lately. I've also been swimming any chance I get, so my Solarsoft Slides have been getting heavy use to and from the pool. 

If there's a single shoe I probably wear more than any other, it's got to be these purple Prestos. They are dirty, ripping apart, and have worn-down soles, but they never leave my doorway.

My daily hoop shoe of choice for these past few weeks has been the Crazy Light 2. I was a big fan of the original, and like the second edition even more. I'm going to be disappointed when it's time to start weartesting something new.

I prefer the original style of LeBron 8 to the V2 version, but the 3M eyestay and red-splattered Air bag made this PE colorway one of my favorites of either version. 

Lasty, these Rick Owens high-top trainers are a bit bulky for weather like this. But I picked them up for a steal recently, and couldn't wait to start wearing them.

I've also been spending a lot of time in my bare feet with all of this heat and swimming. If I could only find the right pair of water shoes, I'd be all set for late-night games of pool basketball.
