How Many Grails Do You See In This Photo?

Take your time and look CLOSELY.

This is not a quiz. There is no correct answer.

I posted this photo on @TheShoeGame’s IG and Twitter yesterday. On IG I said, “So many grails in one photo.” and on Twitter I said, “How many grails do you see?”

The replies I received were amazing and shocking. It was very telling who’s been around for years and who’s new to the shoe game. It’s all good because we all were once young and had to start somewhere.

But still, it seems like new people would do a little research to see what came before them. However, in 2018 I’m aware that’s probably very naive on my part. A lot of people in the game just look for clout and social media acceptance, followers, likes, etc.

I see several shoes that a lot of people would consider grail-worthy. For example, the first shoe I noticed was the Patta x Asics Gel Lyte III. That is straight heat and most definitely a grail to me. In fact, Patta was responsible for reintroducing the model to the world. In my opinion, Patta’ GL3 is still the hardest GL3 collab to date.

Believe it or not, I told Ronnie Fieg Patta has the greatest GL3 of all time. He disagreed. I wonder if he remembers that conversation?

But I don’t want to get away from the point of this post because I want to hear from y’all.

How many grails do YOU see in this photo? Look closely and take your time.

    Dunk Unkles, one of my main sb grails. Can’t go wrong with the Tiffanys of course. Bacon am90’s are nice. Not an Air Force 1 guy but the invisible women’s are a nice throwback.

    Who takes shoes off without unlacing them? Most of them look like beaters.
