++The Bride: Succumbed to my Id this weekend and bought some old school Asics. Not the kind that the runners of today use that are tall and gel-filled but that flat profile once used by Bruce Lee. The specific name is the Onitsuka Tiger (and I got the Serranos and not the Mexico 66s; NERD siren!) 
named for the Japanese military officer who began working on variations in sole surfaces for both runners and basketball players as far back as 1949.

Bees vs. Wasps: Servicey

 

Back then they used to sell for $6! (One last fun fact per Wiki: Asics is an acronym for "A Healthy Soul in A Healthy Body." So Japanese!) Will post a few vids later today of Onitsuka himself and one very good salesman...

(Update: They arrived today and totally live up to the hype! Also, FaceApp is blowing my mind.)
