Before I start reviewing these amazing shoes, I want to say thank you to KPOPQ and everyone on here! I am so grateful for this opportunity and I never imagined getting to review such an amazing product! Love you alllll 💗💗💗

I love the thrill of opening new packages, so I was sooo excited to open the cardboard box and see the iconic MLB logo! For those who are not aware of the brand, MLB stands for Major League Baseball, a sport that is popular all around the world, especially in Korea! ⚾ The wrapping was very secure and the box didn't have a single scratch or dent on it! Even though I am in London and the package was coming all the way from Korea, I received it within a week, and I was able to track it on its journey, which means it is very safe! I greatly appreciate safe purchases, because then I don't have to worry about it getting lost along the way ><

It also came with this free face mask! As someone who has sensitive and dry skin, this was the best freebie I could've asked to receive! I have tried this pack since the photo was taken and I can greatly recommend it!! My skin felt super refreshed and moisturized afterwards! ☺️☺️☺️

Straight away, I noticed the standout logo, and the beautiful white chunky bases. As someone who loves denim, I thought the black exterior was super clean and sleek. Even though the design is minimalistic, it immediately gives off 'cool' vibes, and 'skater boy' feels! Plus, the white stitching is sooo well done! I couldn't see any faults with the design of these shoes! May I also just say, how pretty are the laces??!!! 😆 They were so nicely tied! Sometimes, I have bought a new pair of shoes and the laces came separately to the actual shoe...meaning I then had to try and work out how to tie them correctly. With these shoes, that was never an issue, as they came ready-to-wear!!

^ Here is another close up of the neatly-tied laces!! Plus, the laces were pretty long, leaving plenty of room for tying! I really dislike when shoe laces are small, because it can make them uncomfortable when I have to tie them tightly to try and make them fit... Luckily, these even allowed for me to make a double knot!! Hehe that just made me think of 'Double Knot' by Stray Kids 😅🥰

Just when I thought that the design couldn't get any better, I showed them to my brother and he asked if I had looked at the bottom! I couldn't believe that there were details even on the bottom of them!! If you look on the left, you can even make out the shape of the baseball player!! How cool is that?! 😆 Plus, there is a lot of grip on the bottom of the shoes, meaning I won't have to worry about slipping over, which I normally do a lot 😅

Before I went outside to take pictures, I just wanted to show that they are high tops, meaning that the shoe is pretty high. These are the second pair of chunky trainers I have ever owned, but they are the first chunky shoes I have ever bought that are also high topped! Some people tend not to go for high-tops, since they can't be worn with every type of trousers (they wouldn't really go well with leggings), but I personally love them! They are becoming more and more trendy, especially because of Nike Air Force High Tops being very very popular 😍

large.20211027_121826.jpg.cec1fc4108345c3cce5f75d74791edf0.jpg

I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable these shoes were to wear!! Since they were high, I was worried I might trip, but I never had this issue 😁 The clean white parts are really bright in the sun, and that means that they are a noticeable and eye-catching addition to any outfit!! These trainers stood out even in the London grey skies!! Regardless of what you are wearing, these shoes are bound to get some compliments from those around you!! 🤩

large.20211027_122231.jpg.eb9870cc5eee379e90f6b19825c91ec8.jpg

I styled these sneakers with some ripped, light-blue jeans, and a slightly cropped, navy cricket, cable-knit jumper, that had yellow details around the edges. I am a big fan of the collegiate, varsity style, so these shoes fit my wardrobe perfectly! 😃 Plus, I am a firm believer that the best trainer colour is black or navy, since they go with anything!! 🖤🖤🖤

large.20211027_121924.jpg.f738db4d687ca57c31bd986c5f962713.jpg

Something else I want to point out is the advantages of the materials! Since the bases are made from a rubbery sort of plastic, even though they are white, they are easy to clean. Many people think that white trainers are dangerous or a bad idea, since they can get dirty easily, but with these shoes, that isn't a problem! Some simple soap and water would do the trick!! Similarly, since the top of the shoe is made from black denim, you don't have to worry about creases, or about the tops getting dirty. They really are the ideal sneakers for day-to-day wear 🥰🥰🥰 Plus, the black fabric is breathable, so you won't need to worry about your feet overheating!

large.20211027_121822.jpg.3b76ecb2d593aa8f8335268a9d73690a.jpg

One small issue is that they aren't waterproof, however that is the same for almost all trainers on the market. Since the majority of the shoe is waterproof, it is actually more rain-proof than most other shoes, however there is still a chance of your feet getting wet whilst wearing them. Luckily, shoe sprays are easily found and cheap to buy - you spray your shoes and it makes them less susceptible to getting wet!

large.20211027_121905.jpg.7fbae61e69e3b27a06949324587d0b32.jpg

I wore these trainers with longer white socks, since a common issue with high-tops is that they can rub the back of your ankle, which can hurt if you wear them for long periods of time. Thankfully, I found that wearing longer socks easily got rid of this problem, whilst still being very very comfortable 😊

large.20211027_122359.jpg.7f407dfa5b1e85dbd55d2216ecf8d8fc.jpg

Overall, I really love these shoes. They are durable, well-fitting, and look really cool. Even the shapes on the platforms are awesome! There are just so many features that make these trainers unique, and I can definitely say that they make me feel confident and happy when wearing them. They match with an endless amount of outfits, and are a strong need in every single wardrobe!!

Overall rating: 10/10

P.S. I am a UK size 4.5, and these shoes fit true to size, maybe running slightly large

💜I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this product below~~~💜

      I just want to say a very, very big thanks to KPOPQ and @megacoffee  for this truly awesome sweatshirt you blessed me with. What a privilege to become one of yours FT, I am indeed gratified by your effort to make us all happy. These have brought so much joy and happiness. Your awesome product has warmed my heart.


      I’ve already done a lot of review in different kind of clothing but this is my first time in giving a review for sweatshirt that’s why I’m so excited! 🤩It’s just SOOOOOO STUNNING 😍😍😍! Can’t believe it’s already on my body 🤣 OH what a HAPPY DAY!!


      I am slightly obsessed with this  charcoal color and the entire fit and feel. It's pretty lightweight but soft.This sweatshirt is SUPER soft & SUPER comfortable 😍 — it is PERFECT for our weather here which is rainy season.In LOVE with this sweatshirt💜  glad I was able to get my hands on it & it was super cool!


      This is such a gorgeous  item, it's definitely one of  top bestseller of all time! My favourite thing about these sweatshirt is the length.The material is lightweight it's super soft and not too thick. I love how it is slightly longer as well, it's great to wear with leggings or jeans but also looks great with shorts in the spring/summer! I am wearing the sample size Small in these photos and although they a little bit loose but still nice and it's perfect just like how Jungkook wear it.I do prefer to size down in these (XS). I personally prefer a slightly fit ,but still perfect. It's all about how you want it to fit but I do recommend going with the smaller size 😉



       

      Color is very nice ,material is soft and comfy,Fitting wise good,I wanted a lil loose but I suggest buying one size smaller than your original one coz it’s men size (Just like how Jungkook wears😉 baggy and lil loose) Overall very satisfied😍👍🏻

    • Have you ever heard of the virtual idol group Eternity?  It's already their third single release, and I just got recommendation on youtube yesterday. First I felt a little weird to see humans, that actually not human 😅 confused  How is it possible, I've been following virtual influencer Rozy, she also started to release a song.  maybe it is the reality  It's very possible that the future generation of Kpop will consist of virtual groups. Eternity - Paradise Rozy - Who Am i
