The glorious folks over at New York magazine sent “real” women to test-drive some of the finest fall/winter 2009 footwear down the streets of Manhattan. Watch this video.
I’m begging you — I need, need, need, desperately need, those Nina Ricci and Rodarte shoes NOW! Is there any stylist out there who can hook me up with those? Please? Please, pretty please, with sugar sprinkles on top? I’m a size 40 — model size — just for your information.
The Lanvin shoes I ordered online from Luisa Via Roma finally arrived earlier this week with no delays/taxes/etc. Strange eh? I’m starting to think Filipino
customs pick their prey randomly from a hat. In any case, I’m so happy! I love these blue boxes of love.
Good thing I bought this a few weeks ago when the euro-to-dollar (€322 = US$439 including shipping)
exchange rate was good. Have you been keeping track of the exchange
rates lately? It’s insane!!!! No wonder Barney’s or Aloharag charge around $650 for the same pair. Yikes.
After two weeks of painfully dealing (or should I say ‘negotiating’) with the worst customs in the whole world (they refuse to budge and insisted on charging an arm and a leg in duties and taxes… for a pair of shoes!!), the Lanvin sneakers I bought finally arrived.
But alas, they are the wrong size.
What a beautiful pair of sneakers… I saw the knock-off version at Zara a few weeks ago and it pales in comparison to the real deal. Now I’m gonna have to send them back and wait for another pair to be sent to me. I’m soo sad. I honestly feel like I’m parting away with a child!
It’s alright. At least it gives me time to find black grosgrain ribbon to use as shoelaces.
What is it with everyone doing “designer” mash-ups these days? Remember those Slow & Steady Wins the Race hybrid bags? Well, ladies and gays, meet the ultimate in men’s sneakers: SoleFood’s custom sneakers named “Canal Street Air Force One”. How many brands can you spot in one photo? I spy with my Fendi Spy… Rolex, Chanel, Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
This has got to be the worst pair of sneakers on the face of the planet.
How does it make you feel? I betchu five dolla Rick Ross owns a pair.
