DC Shoes for Women: SS09!

25 September 2008, 18.32 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | No comments »

DC Shoes spring line looks great–a little bit of something for everyone–canvas skimmers, lows and (still my personal fave) hightops. Kudos to DC for designing for women and not just taking down their most popular men’s styles and coloring them in with a pink crayon. There’s no denying that these dotted mids with the assymetrical laces and buttons on the strap are strictly made for the ladies and only the seriously stylish ones at that.

ShopBop Top Seller: Tie-Dyed Chucks!

12 June 2008, 14.37 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

The typical ShopBop customer–in my mind anyway–brings to mind that quintinsential, post-Sex-and-the-City female, who’s basic uniform is a flirty dress or designer jeans and heels. So I was a little surprised when I checked the site’s best seller’s list and discovered that a pair of tie-dyed Chuck Taylors were riding high:

Additionally, for all you bargain shoppers, ShopBop is in the midst of having a big ole 30%-70%-off sale.

Superga: U.S. Launch?

23 January 2008, 13.46 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

At the WSA (a big giant shoe show that takes place in Las Vegas) last year, one of the cutest displays belonged to Italian shoe company Superga (see below). The company wasn’t so much writing orders as introducing the idea of the brand to U.S. markets.

^^Superga at the WSA 2007. The shoes were tied to another great Italian tradition, red Fiats.

According to my sources, it was once sold here, but was overdistributed and eventually died a slow death. It’s back now, migrating here based on the strength of its sales in Europe, where it’s been a popular alternative to Chucks. The company promises that it’s going to keep its distribution limited, and indeed, when just now I looked, the only online retailer selling it was Jildor.

I visited another Superga showcase after the WSA and there I signed up for a free pair of Superga kicks. Well, they finally arrived today in the correct size and everything. I like ‘em cause they’re something different from the same ole Converse, but the only thing is I’m starting to wonder how I feel about canvas.
