There's that line that goes something like "Shoes define the individual", I may just be a living proof of that...
Lately, I’ve been on a Shoephoric high. I’ve been taking home shoes that are comfortable with the colors to match, pairs that I can rock in and out of the gym. It’s the awesome fact that I can slip in and out of these kicks with little or no effort at all. These are pairs that won't be gathering dust on display in my shoe museum, they are gonna get some action, creases and stories to tell. May I introduce you to my new friends...
The adidas Originals ZX Flux "Animal"
This particular shoe reflects my fun and wild side. The animal print and the neon gradient colorway totally got me when I saw it. Next thing I knew, I was out of the shop rocking it with a matching dress. As hectic and busy as it looks, it is calm and comfy on the inside.
The Saucony GRID 9000 Grey/Blue/Yellow
If there's a shoe I'd like to have many colorways of, then this takes home the cake. From the shape, to the fit, everything about this shoe is LOVE. The snug embrace of the shoe down to the pillowy-soft midsoles feel like a foot spa in a Saucony shoe. This colorway just pops out with any outfit I may pick, in and out of the office!
The Nike Sky Dunk High Croc
These feel like wedges with a strong urban chic appeal. From a distance, they may look like a plain white wedge sneaker but the subtle croc detailing gives this shoe that understated personality. Classy.
The adidas Originals X Rita Ora zx500
I call this a "flowery burst of three striped energy", this collaboration with British pop star Rita Ora is pure femme fatale at its best, the baroque floral print combined with the cushioning for my feet, gets me going! I can't stop looking at them!
The adidas Originals X Rita Ora Pastel Bankshot
This just came in yesterday as I was writing this, so it was a pleasant surprise! It was an early Birthday/Christmas present from my Shoephoric team. I was crazy pink with excitement when I saw these!
The high cut shape down to the Pastel Colorway, these literally touched the ground the moment I opened the box!
Nothing like a pastel pink pair to make my day, another collab with Rita Ora, this one is an instant favorite... Beautiful!
As I've said, once I get started, it's a landslide, so expect more shoe reviews in the future!
Shoephoric? You bet I'll always be!
