01 May 2008, 14.22 | Posted in Fashion, Other, Sneakers | 1 comment »

Fashion mags often keep their eye on the crowds to spot new trends at the Coachella music fest, but this year the fashion action seemed to take place all on stage.

Here are some fantastic images of my faves by photographer Toni Francois:

The one and only M.I.A. Who has a better gift for understanding the importance of stage pageantry? None I tell you.

Nike Air Rift: Supa Sparkle!!

30 April 2008, 20.27 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

I am the biggest damn magpie in the world and generally even the cheapest of flashes catches my eye, but for some reason I’m not feeling these super sparkle Air Rifts. I can imagine thinking they were cute on someone else’s feet, just not mine.

Thomas Sabo Charms!

30 April 2008, 16.31 | Posted in Accessories, Shoes, Sneakers | 1 comment »

One of the nicest things about doing this blog is when our readers put us on to amazing things we’d never see in a million years if it weren’t for them. After seeing our charm bracelet post yesterday, reader Bridget let us know about jewelry designer Thomas Sabo, who makes charms like you would not believe. Shoes, purses, dresses, all sorts of trinkets that would melt even the coldest fashionista’s heart melt.

Vans X Niagara Collabo

28 April 2008, 21.58 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

We posted up images of this Vans Niagara collabo awhile back when Samia and I visited the Vans showroom, but here are some spiffier images that give a better view of the art:

If you’re not familiar, Niagara is a female artist, known for her femme fatale imagery. A couple of her quotes on her website are funny: “I paint real strong women; a Niagara girls [is] revengeful, but she gets her own way.” And even more humorous: “It’s the men who cry in my paintings.” Well that’s nice for a change!

KicksandChicks: For Our Dude Readers

20 April 2008, 03.33 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Samia, my blogging partner, believes that we have a lot of male readers. I think she might not be wrong just because a big chunk of our referrels come from HighSnobiety, whose readers have to be almost all guys.

Given the nature of this site, you would think I would read a website called KicksandChicks website regularly, but I don’t. Because even though I have no issue with women getting paid to model, if I’m going to look at images of women rocking kicks, they need to reflect a little more sincerity.

All that being said, this image and the link to the site are dedicated to our male readers. Thanks for your clicks and your interest!

FemaleSneakerFiend: Super Shorty!

20 April 2008, 02.10 | Posted in Other, Sneakers | No comments »

While I’m traveling as promised, I left some posts for head blogger in charge, David, to put up. They’re mostly going to be recs for other sites that I read regularly and who have also given us links love. It’s the least I can do given that at the present moment don’t have a list of links on our site. (Big fat hint, David: We would like a favorite sites list AND to have our comments back!!)

Here’s an image from FemaleSneakerFiend, the all-time greatest site for ladies who love kicks, rivaled by none in all the land. It was founded and is run by Lori Lobenstine, who truely, and I know this to be a verifiable fact, has one of the biggest hearts in the world.

This image comes from “The Little Ones” gallery:

^^If this image doesn’t AT LEAST make you smile to yourself then please leave this site now because you heart is composed of pieces of Antartic rock and we don’t want you to freeze our site with the coldness of your gaze.

Miss you!
