Air Max Day 2019 – My Sneaker Pick Ups From G Lab Vietnam

March 26th marks the Nike Air Max Day.

This year, my trip to Vietnam happened to coincide with the build-up to Air Max Day 2019. Lucky me, considering India hasn’t been doing anything Nike specific for a long time now.

I heard of G Lab, thanks to my time on Google search. I was looking for a place to pick up some sneakers or streetwear when in Vietnam. The last time I was in Ho Chi Minh, 3 years ago, I only picked up streetwear. This time, I needed to get them kicks considering I always buy sneakers from every country I visit. Had to keep the streak going.

Lucky for me, the team at G Lab had an installation set up for Air Max Day along with 30 pairs of the Air Max 1 OG Sport Red stocked and ready to go. There was one condition though, I could only pick up the pair on Air Max Day. And sadly for me, my return flight was booked for the 24th. I spoke with the folks at G Lab and requested them to let me get my pair earlier and they would have my gratitude and appreciation. They said ok and I was good to go.

I also picked up the Nike X Atmos We Love Nike Air Max 1 pair in the blue colorway. So that sorted me out for Air Max Day 2019. Unfortunately, they only had a pair that was half size down from what I wear, but considering the entire upper is leather I am guessing they will break-in with sufficient wear. So I am not fussed about it.

I guess this trip was the first ever that saw me traveling light. I usually would pack at least 4 pairs of sneakers for a 5-day trip and this time, I only packed 2 Ultraboosts for a 12-day trip. Although you can agree that I picked up 2 pairs of the Air Max 1, remember that I only got them in hand the day prior to my return flight.
