Every sneakerhead knows the difficulty in trying to find the perfect outfit to go with a sneaker release. With the right shirt and the right fitted, you can make any sneaker look good. It’s all about ‘coordination’ and ‘complementing’. Being the older cat that I am, I look to showcase my sneakers in the best light. (Lol, I mean I should. I just spent $200+ on the shoes alone). Knowing how to “dress” and knowing how to “get dressed” are two different things entirely. I also know how hard it is trying find the right brands with the right apparel for the right price. So I decided to create Sneaker Style to help you find out what’s out there that’s worth your money. This week’s brand and sneaker is 8&9 MFG. Co./Air Jordan Retro 14 Low “Laney”.
Miami based streetwear brand, 8&9 MFG. Co., just dropped its latest 3 piece collection to match the “Laney” Air Jordan 14 Lows. First is the classic premium tee, the “8 Ball & 9MM”. The tee is black and the graphic hits are in the maize and royal colorway, and besides the front chest it also has hits on the sleeves as well.
Next is the 8&9 “Citrus” graphic tee. This tee is also black and its graphics are done in the maize and blue as well. It has graphics on both the front and back of the shirt. This shirt is for those looking to play it simple with their outfit while letting their shoes standout and do the talking. Both the “Citrus” and “8 Ball & 9MM” tees would be best rocked with some solid black jeans.
Last, but not least, is the long sleeved “#1” tee. It’s getting colder around the Midwest and the Northeast so this should definitely be a “must have” for those who live in these areas. Once again, the shirt is black and you have maize and blue graphics on the front, back, and sleeves of this tee. This one is probably my personal favorite of the 3 and would look the best with joggers.
Funny thing is that the “Laney” 14s didn’t sell out, but of course they only made like 3 pairs of size 15s in the entire country so I pretty much struck out at getting them for retail. Maybe I can still find a pair on eBay for under $500, lol. If you were fortunate enough to get your pair of “Laney” Air Jordan 14 Lows and are still looking for that “something” to rock with them then go to 8and9.com and look out for these 3 tees as well as other apparel they have that may go with other heat you have in your closet.
