Keeping in line with my previous sneaker of the week posts, I bring to you Vans’ very own summer ready shoe. Dubbed “Peach Soda”, the beautiful blue to pink ombre shoes look delicious. I’ve always been into the Authentic silhouette of Vans and I am remembering why, they are an easy model to love. I got my first pair at 12 and have been flirting with the model ever since. Final Word: Beautifully executed.
Adidas – Ash Pearl
Now I’m not typically a fan of the Gazelle silhouette, but when they are done in shades of red and pink I tend to give them a second look. Such is the case with these “Ash Pearl” bad girls. I really think it’s in a shade that will turn heads, but at the same time have you feeling good about what you’re wearing. Final Word: Pink power wins yet again.
Asics – Gel Lyte “Snow White”
These beauties are too freaking cute! I mean, a bow, a friggin’ bow AsicsTiger, you won XMAS! As you may or may not know, I write often about sneakers in the All Gone book. If you’re not familiar, it’s a yearly book that highlights all the most limited edition gear, sneakers and art pieces for that year. I edit and contribute to it and have been doing so since 2012, GEESH! Anyhow, I always am up there writing about these hot Gel-Lyte sneakers for dudes and they went and did this! I literally am really going to have to cop these. They’re unique, cute, and in one of my favorite winter colors, maroon!These were in collaboration with Disney for the movie Snow White and it’s 80th anniversary. While that’s not my favorite Disney movie, i still am digging these fresh a** kicks. Final Word: You did that AsicsTiger.
Reebok – Freestyle Hi UltraKnit
I love these based on their creativity. Reebok literally just put together the knee high socks I love with a sneaker and made it so we don’t have to buy them separately. However, my one concern is cleaning. Since it seems to be sock-like materials used for the upper, well actually Reebok’s UltraKnit fabric, how does one go about washing if they become a mess. I ask this because, well I’m a bit messy at times. Hahaha, no but really I think the material is actually really resilient and good even under cold weather conditions, so we good. Final Word: I like simple and easy, this sneaker/boot does this easily. I’m with it, thumbs up from me.
Nike – Air Max Fury
Do you remember those trainers we used to wear in middle school? These def are giving me those 5th grade gym class vibes and guess what…I like it. The purple accents are what really do it for me, as they def are a color I would have rocked in my developmental years, shoot even now! I like the overall execution and literal retro look of the Air Fury in this iteration, however they almost teeter the line of looking like fakes, but I guess that’s kinda the appeal. Final Word: Cop em, rock em and then sell em.
