#ODDSOW 45: Oddball Shoe of the Week


Click the image above to find your size in the Nike Lunar TR1.

Re-engineered Lunarlon cushioning lies at the heart of the 45th edition of #ODDSOW Oddball Shoe of the Week.

Incredibly soft under foot, but more supportive than the Solarsoft material of past models, the Nike Lunar TR1's low-profile feel, light weight, and locked-down flywire & no-sew upper reinforces your foot for long training sessions and all-day comfort alike.

The hyperfuse no-sew upper also provides much more flexibility to mold to the shape of your foot, not fitting quite as tightly as a typical Nike
sneaker.

Available now at Oddball.com in sizes 14-18 for 110. Make sure you use the code InstaODD for 10% off your entire ODDSOW order.

ASICS GEL-Kayano 21.

Truly one of the greatest running shoes we carry in terms of comfort and fit. Nothing but the best of technical innovation graces these true running shoes, including a FluidFit upper, Ortholite X-40 sockliner, and ASICS patented GEL cushioning.

I know for some it is hard to justify a $159 price tag, because I used to be in the same boat. But from the moment you try these shoes on until the last drop of use, they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. If you've never treated your feet to top-of-the-line running shoes, then you've never experienced true comfort. Read more about the advancements below that allow these shoes to be the favorite in mine and many of our customer's closets.

More on these technologies:

  • ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
  • rovides the ultimate combination of bounce back and
    cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.
  • ASICS FluidFit upper technology combines multi-directional
    stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's
    foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit.
  • Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.
  • This evolution of DuoMax system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
  • Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. 
  • : This premium sockliner features higher rebound properties while providing excellent moisture management, high-level breathability, and anticrobial properties.

Study Finds Men With Big Feet Are More Likely To Cheat On Their Lovers
Bear with us, fellow Oddballs:

Based on a survey by IllicitEncounters.com, "Researchers found was that guys with feet larger than size 10 are three times more likely to cheat on their partners."

Now...3,100 men responded to this survey, so it's a decent sample size. But the aforementioned website's purpose is connecting people with the sole interest of extramarital affairs. Now if that's not skewed data, we're not sure what is.

Nonetheless, they did interview David Perrett, a specialist in psychology and neuroscience at the University of St. Andrews. Whose scientific approach states, Body proportions are related and big shoes will likely mean a bigger, taller body. Body stature will relate to personality. Size will enable individuals to dominate in social situations. Dominance itself may open opportunities for affairs.

Let that marinate.

Sperry Topsider A/O Chukka in brown or grey.

Transition from summer to fall in a pair of tried and true Sperry Chukkas. Thick, full grain tumbled leather upper, metal embossed eyelets, leather laces, and an easy on-off heel pull tab round out this simple design that's iconic in your new fall denim. Handmade in the Dominican Republic, you can't go wrong in either color.

Sperry's backstory, and why you should invest in a pair of American classics, "
An avid sailor and inventor, who almost lost his life to a slippery deck, Paul Sperry spent years and dozens of experiments trying to perfect a non-slip boat shoe.

One day, after watching his dog dart effortlessly across the ice, he carved grooves - like those on his dog's paws - into the bottom of a rubber sole. In that moment of inspiration, the world's first boat shoe was born."

New Balance ML574 Pennant Series.

Modeled after vintage baseball jerseys by using soft terrycloth and suede uppers, these ultra vintage sneakers ooze style. The heathered knit balances the 1930's jersey styled felt "N" and block numbering "574" on the heel tabs. Our favorite thing about the 574 is the combination of classical styling and New Balance comfort provided by the ENCAP dual density foam.

Modern technology, timeless style. 80 dollars, sizes 14-18. Also available in EE widths.

Bigfoot, there can't only be one.


Via Emily Walker of the Ogemaw County Herald:

"A local man dressed as Bigfoot has been walking the streets of West Branch, visiting the I-75 West Branch rest stop and attending community events as a way to promote the area...

I am trying to promote West Branch in a positive way, he said. Seeing Bigfoot here gives visitors something to remember a good memory of West Branch....

The man said stepping out into the community as Bigfoot, he has received a lot of positive feedback.

People wave at me or want to stop and take a picture with me, he said. Sometimes I get people that honk as they drive by me. But people notice me.

Oddball's Sasquatch isn't the only one out there and it's great to see other Bigfeet out in the community building a positive image for our hairy friend.

In this collaboration with Vans, Liberty outfitted the classic Era design with their Felix amd Isabelle fabric print. Paisley embellishments and simple white details round out this unqiue design and make these Vans one of the most sought-after styles in years. A special purple embossed hang-tag in the box reminds you that these aren't just any Vans.

Oddball's long-standing relationship with the West Coast-based Vans company allowed us to have a very limited run in large sizes. Available now in sizes 14-16 for 55.
