“Basically, I live the Complex lifestyle.”
That’s how Dallas Penn describes his love of fashion, sneakers and other collectible items, and now the man behind Internets Celebrities and various other web-based projects has earned his shot at voicing his top 25 kicks of all time via Mark Ecko’s web mag. Penn’s list, while not full of obscure picks designed to pander to the sneakerhead elite, certainly has a bit more variety than the average Air Jordan and Air Max-dominated list we’ve come to expect from these guest spots, and in fact, the only two Jays on the list would have to rank among the unlikeliest of choices. The man clearly loves him some Mowabb and the top 5 is nothing like you might expect, with only one obligatory nod, so click through for a sampling and then head over to Complex to see Dallas Penn’s Top 25 Sneakers of All-Time.

Thanks for the shout SN. I seen kids get they ass whupped for their kicks. I'm glad that doesn't happen too often anymore, except for maybe Baltimore when some Foams drop. LOL If you didn't grow up in NYC during the 1980s you definitely won't give a fux about this list and honestly, it isn't for y'all. This list is for the people who can remember seeing people get their brains beat out their skulls for a pair of sneakers or a Polo ski jacket. I'm glad the world isn't like that anymore and I'm glad I'm old enough to have lived thru all of that. I might know some of your grandparents and trust me they were the pussies getting their asses whupped for their kicks and gear. LOL
funny man DP.. You are more original than adidas.. Hate 80% of these kicks, but love a man who actually lived in the time that this game started..
WOW hope y'all know i wouldn't hate and i know how to read----that was my homie earlier. good kicks tho the air max 2010 fire reds are ill! and def rocking with the foams
Really THESE are his top 25? more like my grandpas top 25...has he not heard of Jordans, shell toes or forces. NO top 25 should go without one of these on the list.
INTERNETS ... some great shoes, some wack shoes ... but Iam glad that he brings something differents ...
http://youtu.be/tMzDp0UTkn0 theses should of been in the top
Yeah! To hell with individuality! Who cares about what you personally like, you gotta go with what everyone else likes!
I'm just saying tho really. if ur popular and u have the change to tell the world ur top 25 shoes i'm showing off some bad boys..and it ain't like i said his choices were wack. he just has no real flavor. these look more like retirement homes top 25 shoes to wear around the grounds.
