Dizygotic Project Alpha (Momotaro “Peach Boy” Pack) “Makoto” Review

Dizygotic is a new, independent sneaker brand that produces shoes inspired by their name – same but different. This debut “Momotaro Pack” is dropping two colourways of their Project Alpha silhouette, and I’m reviewing the “Makoto” edition which features artwork by Japanese tattoo artist Makoto Horimatsu. Inspired by the Japanese folklore hero, Momotaro, this pair has a ton of little easter eggs and is full of quality materials!

New Balance 1700 “Japan” (M1700JP) Review

My latest New Balance pickup is a model that doesn’t normally get as much shine – the 1700. Dressed in the classic “Japan” colours of olive grey and blue, the 1700 is a model popular out East in Japan, and released late last year here in North America in the iconic colours first seen on the M1300JP.
