Welcome to the Re-Re-Restart of Sneakers and Shoes

IMG_9613

Of course I’ve been having troubles restart the fun but thats ok cause I can just start it here. The webzine part of Sneakers and Shes may still be down but the blog is up and might as well start posting some currently available footwear, sneaker type news, fashion talk and opinions.

What up on deck for the webzine…

What’s Out Now: Jimmy Choo 120MM Anouk Pumps at Luisaviaroma

the colors

Nothing to see here… just your everyday casual $700 pair of pumps. No really these things are expensive. I’m willing to bet they are not that comfortable either. If I was going to spend that much money on a pair of high heals, those things better be as soft as pillows on my feet. I mean really ladies, why would you hurt your feet and your wallets?

Anyway if I saw a lady wearing these, she would have my attention. Not sure what type of outfit she would be wearing with this but apparently the websites I found these on has some ideas…

the colors 2

That vest by the way, costs well over $2500. The short shorts is a steal at $525 (and those short shorts are really short shorts).

Think the pumps are what you are looking for? Head over HERE to Luisaviaroma.

Whats Out Now: Under Armour Curry 2 at Eastbay

(the suit and tie still here)

I got one more good year of basketball playing in me (no tournaments, just a pick-up game here or there) and this is the sneaker I want to do it in (along with my still working Kobe 5 low tops… yeah they still do the trick even tho they years old and so does my AJ23’s). Why do I want to try on a pair of kicks from a company I never wear anything from before?

What’s Out Now: Girls Air Jordan 4 at Finishline

Why do the kids get the dope sneakers? Then again maybe its dope because its for the kids? Either way if the kids (or the parents of the kids) like Jordan’s, then these will definitely make them happy. Usually I don’t like denim on sneakers. It takes allot to make it work for me, but these work.

Currently at Finishline HERE

The Air Jordan Retro IV Basketball Shoe is an iconic shoe with a proven track record. In order to keep up with Jordan’s championship caliber play, the Air Jordan 4 debuted in 1989. The shoe matched his stellar season in which he achieved NBA All-Star, All Defense, and First Team honors.

I wonder why they didn’t release this before Christmas or before the start of the school year? Oh well… for the biggest sizes the price tops out at $139.99 and drops from their depending on what smaller size you end up getting.

Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: Diesel Don’t Make Running Sneakers

 

(wow, really?)

This actually happened… it was over 5 years ago but it still happened. Deal with it.

As seen first on Ad Rant

Diggin In The Sneaker Crates: MajorDC x Reebok Pump 25

reebok-pump-major-dc-1

Ohhhh man I like these! ok ok ok I know my current waredrobe wouldn’t allow for such a brightly colored sneaker such as this… sky blue with stars on it? I would have a hard time working this.

But I still like it. There is just something about it.

Here are the details from SneakerNews.com about the kicks

This year marks 25 years of Reebok Pump technology. And while the focal point has been on the vector brand’s Insta Pump Fury with nearly too many collaborations to count, it’s nice to see that the original Reebok Pump will be getting some shine in a new collaboration with Major DC. In earlier previews we saw the vibrant blue sneaker light up with gold accents, but today we get our first full look at the silhouette. Set for a release date on September 13th, the metallic gold accented pair looks to be fairly limited

Since these came out in 2014, the only way you could get them is if you went to an auction site like eBay or something.

At Finishline: Air Jordan 2 “Radio Raheem”

 xl834274014

Personally I hate hate hate the Air Jordan 2 in almost every colorway (originals and retro’s) and I can’t say I like these either but I will say that this colorway give these kicks some hope. They also have a historical point to them harking back to the movie “Do The Right Thing”. It also gets nostalgia points for those old head (like me) who watched the movie when it originally came out.

Considering these released sometime last week I guess I’m not the only one who is just not that into the Air Jordan 2.

If you want them Finishline has them currently for $189.99 HERE

Technical Difficultes… AGIAN

ah geez guys - LeBron VS Clevland

 

I”m not worried though because most of the webzine articles are written, the sneaker photoshoots are done, and being that I had to reset allot of stuff, I have lots of little things to put together. But at least the blog peart is up and running. Wanted both at the same time but can’t win them all! Starting tomorrow snkrs&shoes starts posting on the blog. Whats out now, whats interesting… and junk.

The more I think about it the more fun I think I will have doing this. So many ideas. Hope people like some of them lol

Back to the Future: It’s Here

   
   
Ok so I’m falling into the hype. Let’s be honest; this sneaker don’t look that great does it? But it’s good enough to be wearable. When you add the history and culture behind it then these sneakers turn into extra ordinary kicks. 

They haven’t released. According to the sneaker webs the sneaker will be released in 2016. Of course Micheal J Foc got his pair today. And yes it laces by themselves WITH the sound effects. 

More posts coming soon in Novermber for Sneakers and Shoes. 

Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux Photoshoot…  

   
 
Yes I know…. These sneakers came out a while ago. So what’s the point of having a photoshoot for a pair of sneakers that they hype is gone? Exactly! They hype is gone. This photoshoot (and others coming soon) is just about the love of the design and history of the sneaker. 

I like sneakers (in fact all footwear) mainly because it’s a mix of form and function; design, art and science. In other words these things have to work not just look good but if they don’t look good do they really work?

Grand Re-Opening

The Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux along with another sneaker gets the photoshoot treatment for the re-start next month.
