Its finally arrived, special 2-day shipping...brand new bundle of joy. Big ups to the boys in Milano for this. Heres the break down of events:
2 weeks before D-Day: Rumors abound regarding drop date.
18th night: Called in urgent leave for the next day (19th)
19th 6am local time, or 12midnite Italy: Curse the international time zones (why must the world be round?)...anyway, re-freshed page for the 50th time. Figured they'll only update at the hour or every 30mins, went back to slumber for another hour or so, before continuing the routine til...
19th 12noon: Buddy Ibrahim takes over while i have to pop out for urgent matters (what? u think i took leave just for the kicks?!)
19th 3pm: Back at home, still no update following 500th re-fresh. If the site had Google ads, they would have made a ton of money from my clicking.
19th 7pm: Had to break for dinner, but not before a 1,245,067th page refresh and a re-schedule of dinner to after 7pm.
19th 9pm: web page do not seem to updating anytime soon, time to take drastic action...
19th way too close to 12midnite, and 6pm Italy time: There is a god, and he must have internet. Divine intervention follows and a provincial order is made.
20th 1am: overcome by the "Z-monster", have to catch some winks. Plopped back to bed with a silly grin on me face.
And so ends a close to 18 hour psychological marathon. But for those who understand my babble, i'm sure you guys did the same, with lesser drama maybe. For my buddy Ibrahim: thanks bro for everything, there'll be a surprize for ya soon.
For those who don't understand, its ok. Heres an imagery:
black/black-sail...croc-skin,brushed suede,leather lining...printed insole...detailed uppers...one of a kind lace clips...and s-i-c-k attitude to boot. Without a doubt, the shoe of the year: Stussy Court Force.
Just a question: whats with the box of matches?!
