My 5 // Mr. Throwback’s Sneaker Rotation

Creeping on a comeback, the My 5 resurgence continues with NYC’s Mr. Throwback. The jersey juggernaut has an affinity for nostalgia, keeping many an OG pair in his famed shop while rocking retros on the regular. Heavy on hoops silos but also adding a couple of favorites from the artist and running sector, see what kicks are in his rotation in the pages below.

Mr. Throwback: “Ewing dropped the Dream Team Eclipses from 1992 and I happened to have the original pair. They did a really good job on them. I’m thrilled to wear them because if I wear the OG ’92s they’ll crumble in two seconds. The OGs are on the mantle in my store and I can wear the retro pair. Recently, I walked into the Patrick Ewing event with the OG jersey from ’92 and he said, ‘Man, you need to lose some weight, that doesn’t even fit you.’ [Laughs]”
