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.

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.

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


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…


christian louboutin… ladies

(do the ladies run this mother fromer?)

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.

Hey, don’t forget about Nicholas Kirkwood

(if you buy 10 of these kicks, you can get a small car)

Now that’s a nice lead in for the shoe that will most certainly knock onlookers on their feet. Its still on sale (maybe because the price is high enough to buy a laptop?) and if you want your look to go upscale and unique (cause how many people are gonna buy a 1000+ shoe?), maybe you want to take a look.

Currently on sale at RIGHT HERE.

Nine West Sydney

(hey sexy lady…)

Looks good without having to spend 500-1000+ dollars. Nine West got you covered. For $100 bucks you can have something for the beGrown_beSexy crowd without emptying your wallet to do it. You look nice and such and such (insert positive comment).

So you gonna get them? Head over to Nine West RIGHT HERE and take a look.

beGrown… beSexy WOMEN: Calvin Klein Women’s Danica Platform Peeptoe Bootie

(smooth for the ladies… that is if you like buckles)

Without doing ANY research on these kicks to know this is true or not, it looks like these shoes are named after that racing star…


Put your style in overdrive with the Danica bootie from Calvin Klein. Its luxe suede upper and reptile-embossed straps—elevated with a daring platform and heel—create a racy look that’s sure to quicken pulses, while a rear zipper, lightly padded insole, and textured rubber outsole will keep your pace confident.

“Put your style in overdrive…”, a very interesting statement. Anyway, you can get these if you want them RIGHT HERE. The price has been almost cut in half so if your looking for a nice party shoe, maybe you just found them.

I Love Sandals – Georgina Goodman LOVE FLATS

(Ummm… really???)

This is one of those times where I just have nothing to say. Yeah it happens. If you want a sandal that lets everybody know you love them then click RIGHT HERE to buy them.

The sizes seem limited though but I am sure its sort of one size fits many with this one. 100% calfskin makes this thing happen for your feet.

Reebok Easy Tone keeps on growing and toning that a**

(and yes guys, there is an EasyTone for you too)

Reebok EasyTone seems to be a big winner for them. It’s not the first time that Reebok has used womens fitness to get the edge up on the competition (Reebok Freestyle anyone???). Now it has more colorways AND there is a running version and a flip flop version as well…. flip flops people, seriously? LMAO

Thankfully the flip flops are not as pricey as the full sneaker but thats not the point. the point is that this thing just keeps on getting bigger (all the while you butt gets smaller and more toned).

Does it work? I have no idea. I know a couple of people who got them and they like it but I have no idea if their butts are better for it. I guess I will ave to investigate LOL

See the Reebok family of EasyTone kicks RIGHT HERE, including the Flip Flop RIGHT HERE.
