Love trainers. I always feel the need to dress down in order to dress up. That hip looking trainer from Nike SB, is another beautiful model of its Trainerendor. It now arrives in a fabulous red-wine “Merlot” palette. Check out the mesh accompanied by those really awesome nubuck uppers! Not bad at all! This is truly a beauty. I pretty much adore sneakers with nice white soles. They frame the base very nicely. At a very decent price of 90euros, one must not miss out this shoe at all Nike SB outlets.

While I might not be a big fan of Reebok, I must say their range of collaborations are simply fantastic. Check out their 20th anniversary Reebok Instapump Fury. With fisherman knitted textures, Mita’s designs tapped on a grey knit fabric. An innovative approach¬†which the Instapump Fury has yet to do. I actually love the bright combination of orange mixed with grey. And best of all, we witnessed Japanese authenticity¬†on the insoles with Japanese characters: “Tokyo Custom Made.”

Shopping for that shoe

Are you a sneaker fan? I don’t mean to stereotype here, but a large group of creatives whom I have worked with are huge huge fans of sneakers and would rock them anytime. Personally, my own preference for footwear varies a lot from leather boots to sneakers and sometimes, even stylish sandals for the evenings and weekends if it suits well for the occasion of course. I can’t help but blogged about the design of this pair of sneakers from Italian fashion house Valentino. Check out the new design direction given to this lovely pair of leather studded sneaker. It was launched sometime earlier in the year but the design is just mesmerizing that I think it deserved to be blog here for it’s design. I love the tones of yellow at the tip of the shoe box and that nice blend of studs at the back in cool grey color. The brown, yellow, blue color palette is simply gorgeous. With mesh fabric as part of the construction of this sneaker, it gives a nice variation to the overall aesthetics. I do see a little inspiration from new balance’s all time England and USA classics but the feel is somewhat one that is already more on premium and luxury. Check this pair out when you visit their stores or even at Brown’s online shopping site. It’s selling at 360 GBP.
