It’s should never surprise anyone at the sort of marvels that humanity can accomplish. I mean we’ve been doing it for such a long time that it sort of comes natural to us. That’s whats so great about being a person. The capability to create or surpass anything that can make like more fun, convenient or simply beneficial. This falls into the fun department. And it’s roller blades on acid. [ Continue Reading ]
With the continuation of its “Made in Italy” collection Creative Recreation again brings its A game to the high-end sneaker market, dressing up familiar low and high-top tennis shoe shapes in materials such as calfskin, goat suede and patent leather. The collection comprises some of the finest looking and best made casual footwear I’ve seen in a very long time— you just don’t see sneakers with laser cut vamps, you don’t.
I’ve often heard people refer to their feet as “pretty” or “cute” or some other misplaced, pleasant seeming adjective. Feet are ugly. All feet are ugly, horrible things. That’s why biology has managed to put them as far away from our line of sight as is possible. [ Continue Reading ]
Super-soft leather, flexible soles, low-key color options— Jil Sander footwear is as finely crafted and understated as are its clothes. That’s a very good thing.
It’s more than just a shoe– it’s a work of art. Check out the Spring collection from 29-year-old Danish designer Nina Hjorth. A graduate of both Graeme Armour and the Royal College of Art, Hjorth is bringing back the bright neons from the 80′s that are so big right now and combining them with a more modern cut. This designer is certainly doing her part to make sure that pointy toes and the highest of heels are fun to wear again (even if they do look like they’d make walking down the street and acrobatic feat). Check out her entire collection HERE.
LA Gear sneakers were in fashion the last time I was into high-tops and I was in high school the last I recall someone sporting a pair of British Walkers; perhaps that’s why I feel so nostalgic looking at the latest collection from PF Flyers. There’s something about the designs in their fall line that reminds of those brands and earlier times in my life. My fashion sense has evolved considerably since the 90s, but I wouldn’t be opposed to throwing on a pair of these and going a little retro for a theme party.
I usually have huge debates with myself before buying anything suede. At some point in the process of talking myself into whatever the item may be I visualize this horrible montage of everything suede I’ve ever owned and the untimely and ultimate ruin that followed, along with the looks of consternation and disbelief on the faces of dry cleaners and leather care professionals as they gave me the bad news. Suede simply is not a wearable fabric. Rick Owens has his own way around that.
By f’ing your boots up in advance Mr.Owens saves you the worry over spilled drinks, scuff marks, overly strong gusts of wind and all the other ways in which suede can be injured or ruined.
