XGirlEyewear X Girl Launches Eyewear Collection

Not sure what the status of X-Girl is in the United States. All you OGs know that Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth originally launched this line in the ’90s, but sold it at some point to a Japanese company. Does it still have a store on Lafayette in Manhattan?

L.A Gear just launched their new site! The re-launch of the label kinda worries me tough…I still want a pair of those pink and white hi-tops with pink & white shoe laces, and I am very excited to see them come back!

But the thing is that LA GEAR was a symbol of the "Cool Urban  Girl"as you can see on the picture above, and today that girl  looks very different: she’s  prolly rocking  a vintage tee,super skinny J brand or Paige jeans, hi top Nikes or Jordans, a Chanel or LV bag,with Super or Marc Jacobs shades,you get the picture.So, in a nutshell that girl  loves fashion , shops everywhere,reads highsnobette(had to go there LOL) among other sites and prolly has her own…

Appealing to the nostalgia of the brand  might not get them too far if  that is all their marketing efforts  will entail ,hopefully not…starlets who rock kicks Like, Rih Rih,Cassie,La Lohan ect should definitely be on their roster If they want to reach the women who born in the 90’s …

RihRih: Always Been a Chicks w/ Kicks Kinda Gal

01 September 2008, 17.05 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Fashion, Music | No comments »

It’s adorable how Chris seems to have brought out a more kiddish side of Rihanna and in these images she looks relaxed and cute in her Nike sweats and sneakers, but  RihRih is no newbie to the world of sneakers (which is part of why we lover her style, natch!). Long before she hooked up with Chris (publically anyway) we had images of her sporting a pair of dark denim straight legs with a pair of Nike Vandals.

^^That gold chain she’s wearing is probably solid 14K, but it looks a lot like one American Apparel is selling on its site. (You’ll have to click to the right to see the kicks she’s wearing.)

Kicks for yo’ Babies

14 August 2008, 20.17 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

While visiting with CreativeRec, p.r. rep Carrie wanted to know if we cover kids, and our answer was an emphatic yes ’cause I know for a fact that some of our readers have babies and like to keep them laced up. My son is past the point where I can put him in a pair of awwww-look-how-cute-those-are sneakers, but Mommies who still have little boo-boos have more options than ever.

Creative Rec has a full line of sneakers for boys and for spring it launches a line for girls! I couldn’t photograph them, but wait ’til you see!! So cute and they’re exact take downs of the grown-up’s styles so you and baby girl can totaly coordinate!

Crative Recration Holiday 2009: Rich!

14 August 2008, 17.44 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | No comments »

In the world of women’s kicks, there are two brands that are currently killing it. One of them is The Big Swooshy and the other is Creative Rec. A couple years back I was hearing from local BK sneakers stores that Creative’s women’s product was selling back to the wall and judging by the looks of what the brand is serving up for holiday their roll will continue:

Creative2 Crative Recration Holiday 2009: Rich!

^^Plenty of flair, but still classy

Creative1 Crative Recration Holiday 2009: Rich!

^^More head-turning slickness for your tootsies

On an altogether different note, while we were at the Creative Rec showroom, me, Samia and Creative Rec p.r. champ Carrie had a fun chat about how the major fashion mags basically shun the whole concept of chicks in kicks. And all I can say is that even as their circulation numbers drop through the floor, I hope they stay stupid ’cause it only means more readers for us!

One more low style on the other side…..

RihRih & Chris: The Look of Love

13 August 2008, 14.19 | Posted in Fashion, Other | No comments »

RihRih & Chris have been spending some quality time together lately. Looking at all the images of them on UltimateRihanna, I can’t help but think that they’re  a more stylish and beautiful version of Mr. & Mrs. Carter.  It’s like someone took the words to "Upgrade You" to heart and the end result was these two.

Nike does it again..

Nike   Zesti 2 Nike does it again..

I ‘m always baffled by the concept of sneaker brand  devotion,when  there are sooo many out there…The "Nikeheads" as we call them get me the most,However when you take a look at the footwear Nike  came up with for the  olympics you have to give that design and concept department a firm handshake of approval…

The Zestis above was designed for beach Volley Ball Haven’t you wondered how they play in the hot sand…The men are insanely well built by  the way, so as I was saying..I could see these In a Rei Kawabuko Runway  for sure!

Look after the jump for more Nike designs

I have to be honest and say that lately the women’s sneaker world has done nothing to spike my desire for as versatile and funky as the sneaker gal can be it seems to be hard for folks to catch..Nonetheless Nike always has something !
