Snob Essentials

If I was cooler, I would wear these.

Designers Marithe et Francois Girbaud for spring-summer 2011 ready-to wear collection presentation in Paris.

I wear sneakers out of necessity. When I’m working out (ew), when I have a long way to walk, and when I am doing something dirty (I mean outside/nature wise, perverts). But these sneakers are a shoe of a different breed. I would not run in these, no, no of course not. Would I walk far in them? I suppose I could. I wouldn’t dare get them dirty. This, my friends, can be tricky.

The “I’m as cool as Kanye and can kick it in high top sneakers” look is a challenge for even seasoned shoe vets. The colors might make it a little easier to not look to boyish with. Still, an extreme skinny jean might be needed for fall wear or a casual jersey dress so to not look too sloppy. Don’t you dare wear a baseball cap sidewise with this though- that’s just taking it to a whole new level of “look mom- I’m gangsta!” Don’t try to play into the shoe, let the shoe play into your outfits and be a casual, contemporary and sexy addition in a laid back way, if done right.

In conclusion, if I was cooler, I would rock these bad boys.

  1. who makes them? where can we get them? what materials and colors are they available in? this post is one big digression, not at all informational.

    Happy Friday to you all. Below the pictures there is a tiny caption missing that should read:

    They are (clearly)canvas and patent leather. Since they are not listed on their site for sale yet, I did not include it in the post. But here it is in-case you are looking to purchase them in the future. http://www.girbaud.com/eng/

    I apologize for not including in the post. I’m always looking to improve my writing so thank you for the constructive criticism!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  4. Do you know where these are available to buy in the U.S.? I have researched everywhere, and they only have the mens collection.
