First up are the Air Jordan 1 Retro High in Black/Infrared!! I spotted these back in December, I think on some website and fell in love immediately! Red is a big N.O but INFRAred is a YES YES YES. These just got released this month so hopefully I WILL FIND THEM AND PURCHASE!...so long as they come in any size smaller than a UK 7 as I know these are men's shoes. One can try and hope and pray or if all fails, one can dream....
"Blue Sapphire". Another pair of Jordan Retro 1s, one is patent, the other nylon. I am a whore for patent trainers! and am willing to spend bucks on a pair of patent kicks because it is a rare sight (I got my last patent dunks for £100, £75 with my mates lovely discount! Thanks!) The patents are released in March 09 and the nylons should be out now. I have yet to own any nylon material trainers, but I suppose they are a necessity due to the English weather. An umbrella for my feet...
HOT DIGGITY DAM!!! Come to mama! Words cannot describe how much I need these feet-umbrellas in my life...you know to shield my feet from rain and stuff...they are made of nylon...but I have to wait until Spring/Summer. I'll keep you guys updated fo' sure:
I "dig"these Nike Air Diggs: Corny...yes!Teal? Hot Coral Pink? Gum sole??! Com'on! These are killing me, along with the fact that women used to actually play Volleyball in them back in '91. Can you imagine scuffing these babies? Hell, I wouldn't even go there:
And Finally, the ultimate hubba-hubba's. The Nike x Liberty Blazers. For those who don't know (shame on you!), this is the 2nd time this collaboration has come around. Last May they created the Liberty Hi Dunks in a cherry red floral print and also a purple floral print, both of which sported the oh-so-lovely gum sole. The hype and popularity from that shoe made them come together once again, but this time on the chunkier-shaped Nike Blazer. For those who are not overly keen on the Nike Blazer, the Liberty prints are also featured on another Dunk Hi. This time mishing-mashing various clashing floral prints to create one bold and look-at-me shoe. I think this collab is one of best out there at the moment, especially as it allows for non-trainer girls to think twice before saying NO. It is typical of a "Oo-la-la-I'm-a-chick-and-I-wear-floral-print-trainers" type shoe but, this time, it doesn't matter, because they are too HOT. So much so, that even VOGUE featured them. Oh, and they are released tomorrow, on 14th Feb (Valentines Day? floral? TYPICAL. But, Floral+Trainers=My perfect Valentines present!) My eyes are definitely on the Blazers, can you not just imagine skipping along in these? Either way, I need me a pair of Liberty x Nike's, be it in a Dunk or Blazer (!!):
Just before I go I must show you this horrendous Nike x M.O.B collab:
Thank Goodness these are JUST SAMPLES! Phew, I almost lost faith in both Nike and M.O.B. I seriously could not believe my eyes when I saw these, and to think that they could have had the chance to become limited editions. It is commonly known that avid sneaker collectors are willing to queue day and night for any type of limited editions to be released (just as fashionista's queue for the latest high street x designer collab), and I could only imagine the people queuing for these...Chavs anyone? Chav's staple item of clothing is anything which features the famous checkered Burburry print. Do not ask me how they managed to make Burberry so tacky. These would have been a must-have in their wardrobe, but luckily they were scraped for the heavenly patent black, hints of gold and white tweed number, which channels Chanel over Burberry (you will never be able to find these now, not even on Ebay....good luck):
P.S Is it Fate or Coincedence that these will all be released (bar a few) when I will be New York?!
Edit: Kay From Purple Lipstick just informed of the fake M.O.B. x Nike samples! PHEW! Someone just put the M.O.B. tag on it...shame on you!
