The Life and Culture of Kicks

Vanessa and Angela Simmons PASRTY Keeps Doing Its Thing

Well, I am impressed. When Pastry first came out I said to myself, “Dude, another freakin sneaker company?” Yes, that is exactly what I said to myself. I could not even imagine them being close to successful. I wasn’t hating on them specifically, but I sure though the market is getting a little crowded. I mean, what’s next? Reverend Run sneakers? (ok, bad example) G-Unit sneakers Sean John sneakers Gucci sneakers Apple Bottom sneakers Timberland sneakers… ok, I think you get my point.

Anyway, Pastry actually is doing it really well. Their casual sneaker line really looks good. I especially like the Fab Cookie Boot (do not know why its called a boot when it obviously is a high top or mid sneaker) and I especially like the names for the different colorways. Double Chocolate Chip? lol Just saying it makes me wanna get this for my girl, whether she likes them or not.

I also like the Cake Runner shoe but do sort of wish it didn’t have “that air thing” at the back. Every shoe and its mother has “that air thing” for cushioning in the heel area. Some sneaker companies get away with it with the design. New Balance has this thing called Abzorb with clear plastic over the cushioning thing and it looks original. I don’t know. Maybe that’s what people want and sneaker companies just give it to them, but I just think they could be more original about it sometimes.

Did I mention they have those sneaker bags, handbags and now are getting into clothing too?

For some reason, I really like those pants. There isn’t anything special about them, but I like them. Maybe its the shoes the model is wearing… and speaking of clothes models, why these women always have the flattest butts evar? Can we have some normal women in some of these shots please? I totally expected Apple Bottoms to use models with more shape but they don’t either. And Dereon? Same thing. lol You would think the “urban” clothing companies would show women with more shape sometimes. And why does Plus Size women shots always look odd? Plus size women don’t always look odd, thank you.

Rant over lol. Back to the main subject, Pastry clothing is very appealing and I would LOVE to see a woman wearing these pants and jackets.

All this to say that I thin not only Pastry will make it, but i think they will do quite well at it. Womens sneakers hasn’t really ever taken off too well, but I think pastry will do what many other sneaker companies can’t really seem to do; sell womens sneakers and shoes.

PS

Dr. Jays seems to like Pastry allot too and has a page for pastry that seems to have a little more care and detail than other clothing lines. (I take it back, Dereon has a special page too. I think Dr. jays should think about having more pages like this for their mens lines too)

HAWT lol Too bad its sold out on Finishline

Good lawd, I wish Pastry had some stock, cause I would buy it (only after going over their financial statements and looking at a few financial ratios lol)

    Hello my name is Teresa.
    I am originaly from New Jeresy but now i live in Italy.
    I have seen the most off the hook kicks on your page. I am going crazy trying to find kicks so i can sell in my store that i just opened. I have looked every where but all i can find are fake kicks. Do you think you can give me some info on where i can buy at least a hundred or more original kicks?

    Please if you can be of any help i would really appriciate it.

  3. Hey Teresa.
    Are you talking about Pastry or everything I post about on my blog? I practically cover all (as many as I can) mens and women sneakers and shoes (and other related items like fashion and sportswear). Heck, I even have an area called “Its Gotta be The Shoes” of which I cover car/bikes rim and tire styles.
