What’s Out: Aquazzura Rainbow Striped Suede Sandal on Neiman Marcus

Aquazzura Rainbow Striped Suede Sanda

 

Maybe its too colorful or maybe not… I think a woman would look great with these on especially if she had the right outfit on. How hard would it be to find a matching dress or outfit with thiese when you have at least 4 definite colors to work with? LOL

Details of the shoe:

  • Aquazzura striped suede high-vamp sandal.
  • 4.3″ covered heel.
  • Open toe.
  • Glove vamp.
  • Self-tie back closure.
  • Leather lining and outsole.
  • “Rainbow” is made in Italy.

You can get it HERE AT Neiman Marcus. The price is high tho. This one id not for every budget that is for sure.


At Neiman Marcus: Maison Margiela Future Translucent High-Top

Maison Margiela Future Translucent High-Top

Is this what is next for sneakers? It like a love hate situation for me: I like that they are doing something different, while I don’t like plastic all over my sneakers and the price wow). Its def a fashion sneaker due to the fact that there is nothing to speak of in the way of technology. So if you are wearing these is can say that your fashion forward all the while saying that you got 1000+ dollars to spend to show how fashion forward you are.

Details:

  • Maison Margiela “Future” high-top sneaker in translucent polyurethane.
  • 1″ heel.
  • Approx. 5″H shaft.
  • Round toe.
  • Split vamp with padded grip-strap.
  • Dyed-to-match rubber outsole for traction.
  • Maison Margiela signature white stitched label detail on heel counter.
  • Made in Italy.

Made in Italy? For some reason I really like that part.

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.


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
