Sperry Top-Sider ‘Trinity’ Boot

29 September 2011, 15.58 | Posted in Shoes, boots | 1 comment »

sperry 540x338 Sperry Top Sider Trinity Boot

Sperry Topsider ruled the boat shoe trend this Spring, and this Autumn what the brand has done for women in the “Trinity” boot is pretty snazzy.  A rugged look suitable for the season of inevitable slush, allowing us to still “wurk it” with a sturdy heel and a cool outdoorsy look. Available at Karmaloop, who by the way seems to have gotten a webstore makeover!

OpeningCeremony 540x360 Opening Ceremony Sheepskin Boots

Opening Ceremony recently posted its men’s lookbook for Autumn. These are highly covetable, are they not? For that matter, the wool leggings, too. No idea what the brand is they’re not on OC’s retail site yet. If you’re a menswear know-it-all, feel free to speak up in the comments.

The Ugg Collection Autumn/Winter 2011 Preview

IMG 7990 540x404 The Ugg Collection Autumn/Winter 2011 Preview

We  attended a presentation for Ugg’s very much anticipated high end line a few weeks ago.  Clearly we can see  the brands desire  to expose consumers to the depth and width of their assortment and maybe  be known  for more than  their classic sheepskin boots, which are pretty much everywhere during the winter(still after all these years!). The Ugg “Collection” as it is simply called features classic  slightly rugged silhouettes  and lux materials like colored pony and fur for what we see as a very hefty price point. On the next page a few close-ups . The full collection  is available now here.

Tom Brady’s ‘Step’ Commercial For Ugg Boots

08 September 2011, 19.41 | Posted in advertisement, boots, celebrity | 6 comments »

Yes this is a men’s item again (watch it, Jeff, we’re coming for you!), the thing is this Ugg commercial featuring Tom Brady (wife of Gisele to the fashionistas; superstar quarterback for the New England Patriots for the sports lovers)  fascinates me because as a big ESPN watcher I was intrigued by how intensely he was mocked when word first hit he was signing on as the face of Ugg boots for men, with further teasing not long after when he was spotted possibly wearing a scrunchie and definitely dancing awkwardly while in Brazil.

The ad, with backing music by Mos Def, will premiere on this season’s kick off of Monday Night Football (New England vs. Miami) and you know what? I think it’s gonna work. The music is good, there’s no sign of Giselle but there is a pittbull and it’s not too, too macho…actually sort of perfect for the demographic it’s trying to target. It’ll be interesting to see what if anything ESPN and their ilk have to say about it.

Sebago x Ronnie Fieg ‘Abenaki’ Boot

SebagoRonnieFiegAbenakiBoot 540x360 Sebago x Ronnie Fieg Abenaki Boot

We wrote about this collabo between Sebago and Ronnie Fieg a while back and I’m hearing through the Fiegster that they are now available at his store and going fast. For purchase here.

[Full disclosure, when Samia first saw these she fell deeply in love with them. I meant to get at Ronnie for a pair and when we were in Vegas we ran into him and he very generously hooked us both up. I say this all to say that they have since arrived and I, too, have fallen in love! The leather is amaaaazing and the (detachable) fringe cuff makes them next level. To see them in action, check out this street shot of style blogger Marcus Troy wearing them, as shot by William Yan. They really are the perfect shoe for Autumn.]

Magic Platform: Swedish Hasbeens

SwedishHasBeens (6)

We are long time fans and supporters of Swedish Hasbeens so how delighted was I when I visited the Platform section of Magic last week, to discover head designer Emy Blixt was manning the booth! There was a sad moment when it was revealed that Blixt’s co-founder, Cecilia Neuman, had passed recently, but we didn’t dwell–not the place after all, and moved on to design and how impressively this young brand had evolved from the vintage clog silhouette that launched it to an array of streety savvy silhouettes. Blixt said the brand had always been most rooted in its materials story and was evolving from using wood to embracing other natural materials like cork and leather soles.

For Spring 2012, natural leathers remain a theme (see above) with fashion themese anchored around vintage sporty looks from the 20s, 30s and 40s, a tribute of sorts to the women who bucked moral dictate during the era and lived active, athletic lives.

See more shoes, bags and a shot of the delightful Blixt on the next page.

Project LV: B-store Shoes & Boots Spring 2012

Bstore 540x405 Project LV: B store Shoes & Boots Spring 2012

B-store ’s shoe offerings for Spring 2012, in my opinion, were the overall best at Project. There were other brands who had either single or multiple pairs capable of making the heart beat faster, but for B-store it was every single shoe–want, want, want, to the point where it was very tough to pick one for the front page (and in fact I may pull one or two for separate posts). An unusual blend of colors, materials, and silhouettes combined to create a collection that exuded warmth and beauty. Just lovely.

Enjoy more shoes (and one bag) on the flip.
