I’m feeling a bit – old – these days. You see, I only learned about Nike Huaruche’s through Keith’s son’s Christmas list. He asked for them in black on black. As I shopped around online for the best deal for him, I kept wanting to nab a pair for myself. They’re just so cute! They look incredibly comfortable and I just love their old school vibe.
I keep debating whether or not he will be mortified if he shows up for Christmas and I have a pair on myself. I’m pretty sure he would be and, for some reason, that makes me feel old. Not quite old enough that I won’t follow-through and buy myself a pair, but I’ve decided to wait until the new year to pull the trigger so that he has his moment to shine with his new shoes.
Of course, I’m also smitten with the Fenty – Puma X Rihanna Creepers with the suede top and tan sole. I can’t link to them because they are still out of stock, but I do love them and will buy myself a pair as soon as I find them. They also feel retro, reminding me of the platform sneakers I wore when I was in eighth grade or so, but so much cooler. Side note: why is everything Rihanna does pure gold? How can that much cool be wrapped up in one person?
Lastly, I will always love my shell-toe Adidas. I need a new pair of these bad boys as the pair I currently have is totally worn out and greasy.
I’m happy the fashion world is finally embracing the sneaker for the ladies. Even though I love a good heel, it boggles my mind that we have so willingly accepted a beauty standard that basically handicaps us. It is the best feeling of the world to kick around in sneakers that are so comfortable. I hope this trend never goes out of style.
