I’m BACK. So sorry I’ve neglected you over the past month! After deciding I wanted to steer my blog in a new direction I took a brief hiatus, stepping back to reflect, brainstorm, and dig a bit deeper about what I really want to focus on for the next few years. For me, this is a passion project and once that feeling of passion starts to fade, you have to either do something about it or let it fade into the sunset. I’m hoping to implement the former. While I work on a revamp, regular posting will resume. Thanks so much for your patience as I rediscover my passion… it really means a ton to me!
Here’s a photo of the New Balance camo 501 men’s sneakers I spied on KicksOnFire, snapped earlier this year at PROJECT Las Vegas. I plan to pick these up when they’re released in women’s sizes June 1. Only downside? For women, the colorways are pink, blue and green. Sorry, but real talk, women always get screwed out of the “good” colors. Women like gray sneakers too! I mean, I get it. Yes, women like pink. BUT pink camo is an entirely new ballgame and a strikeout, IMHO. Suppose blue camo it is then!
These sneakers legit make me sad since I’ll never be able to wear them. Only available in men’s sizes <LAME> I can’t help but think that ladies would like these too. Since I already have my silver Pierre Hardy high-tops, I’ve been looking for a pair of gold sneakers and these fit the bill perfectly. Sadness.
So let it be known, I’ve evolved into a closet sneaker enthusiast. It’s weird to admit this but I get more amped on a new sneaker release than a new pair of heels. WHO AM I? After stalking the Nike Air Max 1for a while, I came across the Nike Eclipse II Premium sneakersand the rest is history. Retro styling > Comfort. Pick these up at at Sneakerhead.com!
KINDA love telling people my shoe size and seeing their reactions. “You have big feet for such a petite person!”
I had scored these Pierre Hardy Metallic Leather High-Top Sneakers during Net-a-Porter‘s annual half off sale but got a size 40 (FR) because that’s what I typically wear in sneakers. And though I could make them fit because of the velcro straps, they look MASSIVE to the point of RIDICULOUS on my feet. Like dude-big. If you put me in a line-up with guys and only showed our feet, I’m pretty sure everyone would assume I was a guy.
Luckily, I managed to snag a size 39 when it came back into stock the other day and can’t wait to receive them. Plan to pair these high-tops with really minimal looks that include dark blazers, t-shirts and mini skirts.
If you prefer these in gold, Luisaviaroma is doing a pre-order for them right now!
