I wouldn't call myself a serious sneakerhead or anything, but I've always loved the bold colors of ASICS shoes. The first Onitsuka Tiger I ever bought was fire engine red. Having one leg means that people will often look down at my foot when I walk by. Part of wearing a bright shoe, I think, is to show I don't have anything to hide and that I'm confident in my skin.
I'm excited to have recently partnered with ASICS to the story of how their shoes have been a part of my life.
I've been collecting their shoes for over a decade.
My collection doubled when I happened to meet another guy with one leg who wears the same type of sneaker.
I wear an ASICS every day on my 5 mile walks around town for exercise. So I've worn out some of those shoes, but he and I remain friends.
Anyways, we filmed the "My Day with ASICS" video at a beautiful state park where my wife Ashley and I frequently hike. We got to wander around the dusty trails on a beautiful Friday afternoon and spend time with their amazing production team. It was actually the first socialization I'd had in months. Ha. Pretty awesome experience!
