Ok, so clearly I have a thing for sneakers. I can’t say that I would stay in a line in Los Angeles for hours for custom-made sneakers a la Turtle in Entourage (and that’s an antiquated reference, so, whatever), but when Converse gets in the game and does a designer collaboration, I’m all ears, feet and credit cards. Because, people. Chuck Taylors transcend the word “cool.” They are EPIC.
Like THIS amazing Comme des Garçons version of the famed high top sneaker. They’re coming to Barneys New York in September and they are consuming my waking thoughts. Casual shoes are one thing, but these take the concept of casual gym shoe to a whole other level.
And you know what the cool thing is? These will look amazing while they’re pristine and white and pretty, but when they’re street beaten and look like you may have run away with the band, they will look even better. Casual weekend, commuting, coolest mom in the car pool, sweet chick on the streets – these are the shoes you want.
Back off the size 39s, though. They’re mine. 🙂
