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.

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.
