I also got Adam these Bo Jackson shoes. You can’t tell in this pic, but all the grey parts that look like leather are reflector material, so if you take a picture of these shoes with a flash, they glow like crazy. They are HYPHY.
You guys, I saw these shoes at the mall today and they only have them in women’s 7, and I am a women’s 8, and I NEEEED them. You can’t tell from the photo, but the stripes at the top that look white are actually pale mint-green. You can find the men’s version, too, but nothing under men’s 7 (women’s 8 is men’s 6.5). Boo.
ETA: Yay, I found them! We truly live in an age of instant gratification.
All Weather Shoes by Thea Cadabra
Thea’s original inspiration came from diverse sources such as David Bowie, Biba, the Rocky Horror Film Show and vintage clothes, to 50s kitsch. Her designs were thematic and often embellished with 3-D motifs, which lent drama to her fantasy creations, providing delight, amazement, and often amusement to wearer and observer alike.
Found in the Archived section of her site so you’d probably have to search around and be very very be lucky to find a pair of these to buy unfortunately.
Raf Simons White & Blue Leather Holographic Space Sneakers for men | SSENSE
Why only for men?
I hate the genderedness of sneakers. Men get all the colours and styles I like. I end up having to find places that have really small men’s sizes in order to get what I want (Asian sites/vendors are the best for this).
p.s. These shoes are cool
