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┬árocking 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]”
