Remember my convention shoes? The black aerosoles that kind of look like glorified bowling shoes…yep, those are the ones. Well, they have officially been replaced…okay, not for this year since I’ve only got two more days, but next year my little aerosoles will be getting the boot, and I’ll be replacing them with a fabulous pair of Nike Gladiator sandals….oooooh aaaahhh… they’re kinda like a hybrid boxing shoe/ gladiator sandal, right? I don’t know, but I like them…a lot!
Now, it is my understanding that these debuted in Spring ’09 (please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong). Since I never ever ever shop for athletic shoes (aside from gym shoes), these FABULOUS babies were no where to be found on my radar…until today. One of my co-workers was sporting a black pair today and I fell instantly in love….
…and then she told me the best part! they come in bronze! Now as far as I’m concerned, metallics are just as neutral as browns, blacks, and nudes and I love the idea of metallic athletic shoes. It gives them a girlie quality, don’t ya think? And I hear that these shoes are super comfy…perfect convention shoe replacements. Well, that’s it, I NEED these shoes in my life! They are about $80 on zappos.com althought I don’t think all of the colors are available there. I had to do some googling to find the lilac. What do you think of these shoes? Which color do you all like best?
In other news, I was browsing the Slaves to Fashion blog on Glamour.com and I ran across a fashion faceoff post feature Liv Tyler and Keri Hilson both wearing the same striped blazer from the Givenchy Spring ’10 RTW collection.
