The Life and Culture of Kicks

Shoe Head Edition

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.

Selfridges – Worlds Largest Shoe Department Store Opens

(old news but hey, its still worth noting)

Looks like the ladies get all the attention. If only guys can have something like this… but would guys even go if there was one?

So anyway, the store is open, and has been open for s while. Check out the quote from Lifestyle @ Yahoo:

Measuring approximately 35,000 sq ft, the department is the largest project Selfridges has ever undertaken. It contains six salons and 11 boutiques or ‘themed apartments’ that have been uniquely crafted to reflect each brand – Chanel’s is a reflection of Coco Chanel’s apartment in Paris, while Jimmy Choo’s is adorned with hand-painted gold foil wallpaper.

Europe has all the fun I guess.

H Williams Spring 2010

(a very interesting look to say the least)

Yeah I read this over a month ago but I wanted to still post about it so here it is. First heard of it on Running With Heels. At first I wasn’t too impressed but then I went over to H Williams site and had to change my mind.

Some really nice stuff going on over there. For more on H. Williams (who needs a first name?) head over HERE.

Loving That DSW Commercial… from last year

(first time I saw it so its new to me)

While watching TV with my wonderful Mom, you know like all good sons do in their spare time, I saw this commercial that was man funny and I just had to make a post on it. Like to see it? Here it go:

DSW has a bunch of these type of videos on YouTube and they are pretty funny (the ladies might get the jokes more than the guys though). I thought of doing something like that for this blog… but that would take up WAY too much time. I can’t even get my main website the way I want it LMAO But it would make for a nice show if someone did it.

Never browsed DSW for anything as far as kicks before. It looks pretty decent as far as getting an everyday pair to wear. Not too many sneakers but many shoes and yes slippers. Lots of slippers.

Check them out. I think you will be surprised.. I know I was.

Man, I post the craziest stuff.

Columbia Bugathermo Hiking Boot… it keeps you warm in the cold with heat

Columbia Bugathermo hiking boots

(wow… for 250 bucks you can have warm feet)

This actually seems like the corn-ballyist idea I have ever heard… but I actually like it. The shoe is heated.. with batteries. Depending on the setting the warmth can last for 3 to 8 hours. Not bad.

What’s better is that the batteries are rechargable so there is no constant battery buying needed (not sure what happens when the rechargables stop working though)

You can buy them right now at if you wish. Hurry up cause it would seem that they are popular and not all sizes are available.
