KICK FLIC of the WEEK.

So, the Olympics are in full swing and so are the collaborations, i.e. Adidas x Opening Ceremony. The sneakers are pretty fresh, very different from the typical Adidas Hi Top, which I am always a fan of. The color ways, the floral prints, the Hi Top Samba? Ah hello, I’m a life long soccer player and the Samba has always been a top Adidas fav, but I’ve never seen it as a hi top and I must say ooh la la I’m in love. The clear gum colored, rubber sole is ri-donk-u-lous, love, love, love it long time… plus the added splash of floral print on the classic 3-stripe, wow. 

Thank you, thank you Adidas x Opening Ceremony for such a lovely and unique new look for Adidas, on some classics in some very non traditional versions.

To Stuff or Not to Stuff?

UBIQ – Fatima Kitty

  $254.95

I’m not really sure how sold I am on all these stuffed animal so-to-speak sneakers. As my friends, family and fellow blog followers probably know, I am definitely into the more adventurous, colorful, fun side of fashion, but I don’t quite know what to do with these stuffed animal kicks, let alone pay $254.95 for them. 

Love leopard, love pink, actually do like the white and black versions as well, I mean what girl at some point in time hasn’t liked Hello Kitty, or in UBIQ’s case, “Fatima Kitty“… I mean really, don’t lie ladies… this is actually kinda cute.

I think the outfit worn with this would have to be severely toned down and let these be the ‘statement’ pieces… but I feel like they may actually be growing on me. Jeremy Scott obviously the trend setter in this department with Adidas, but others are catching on my friend…who knew our childhood stuffed animal favs and their heads would wind up attached to our feet and rocked as a 2012 fashion accessory?


1/2” platform. Fabric upper and man made sole. Fits small. In between sizes should order up! Size US8 (EU 38) insole measures at 9 3/8 inches or 23.5cm. Each half size is 1/4 inch or 1/2cm difference. 


HIGH KICKS.

Ok, ok… so I was so not a fan of the Isabel Marant hidden wedge sneakers when they came out. I am a loyal 80%20 fan and to me it was a total bite on the design that Ce Ce Chin has been doing for YEARS now… so needless to say I was annoyed some big money brand comes along and totally knocked off what she has worked so hard to create. So, basically I shamed all the wedged sneakers that were coming out.

Alas, Italy. Oh the Italian (I’m so sorry Ce Ce) but these Serafini Wedged Sneakers I can definitely get with. They for sure give off a more “real” sneaker vibe vs the more ‘shoe’ looking sneaker – it’s an art hiding that wedge in the shoe it really is and the Serafini Manhattan’s are the bomb. I heart them dearly as a ‘true’ sneaker head, I truly do.

Job well done Serafini, still a bite off 80%20 but if you’re going to pay homage to someone else’s work, this is the way to do it.

– white leather
– red and blue suede
– inside wedge: 7cm
– rubber sole
– velcro
– MADE IN ITALY

KICK FLIC of the WEEK.

Yum Yum gimme some!

These Adidas Originals Forum Lo RS’s are literally 1 of 2 low tops I will ever wear (love you my Nike Air Max 90s). The new rendition for Spring ‘12 are boom bastic kick fantastic and I’m sure they only come in frickin MENS as usual, but that doesn’t mean a girl can’t stare a little bit… get her flirt on with a hubba hubba pair of super fly kicks. 

Right? Flirt away ladies, flirt a-way. 

Wink Wink…

Words to LIVE by.

I had a conversation not too long ago with someone about how I wish more people could “just do it”. By this I meant, just doing what they say they are going to do, be the people they say they are going to be or want to be, say all the things they think and never say, or want to say… live the lives they want to live but take no action to live them… be who they truly are and not what they think others want them to be…

It’s really not that hard, yet I find many people crossing my path to which it truly is. We should just be who we are, go for what we really want and say all the things we ever want to say, because one day you’re not going to be here and that’s just the cold, hard truth and when that time comes you will regret it. 

As for me, I have no regrets, only mistakes that I must take and learn from. This is my motto and I actually really mean it … 

KICK FLIC of the WEEK.

ALIFE Everybody HIGH Toxic – on JackThreads IMMEDIATELY for only $49.99! (If you don’t know about JackThreads you should have like 5 years ago and now ya know!)

I’m so sad though, these only for big feet people, not us midgets and these kicks are my fav colors! Army Green and Orange!!!

Now, If only they would make DOPE ASS SNEAKERS (that are mens) in WOMAN’S sizes! Now would that be so difficult? Alas, yes it is… apparently we ladies always want some pink n shi*t, which I do not, only NEON Pink will suffice. So, I will sit here and wait, and wait for these to come in a mere size 4.5/5 so I can purchase them for myself.

Until then, shop away BIG FOOT.
