Adidas X Jeremy Scott: Tassle Sneakers!

adidas jeremyscott 01 Adidas X Jeremy Scott: Tassle Sneakers!

Tassles are the it detail this year so be prepared to see everything from hats to tops to toothbrushes accented with them. This works for me as I am a tassle lover and as such can’t help but adore these kicks, which are currently available through the Cambridge-Massachusetts-based CNCPTS boutique.

Vans X Hellz Bellz Sneakers: Hell Yes!!

VansHellzBellzE Vans X Hellz Bellz Sneakers: Hell Yes!!

Vans collaborating with Hellz Bellz is a match made in heaven and further evidence that Vans is not playing around in its quest to make its ladies product stand alone. The two styles shown here, the Sophie on the left and the Hadley on the right, will be released in February. The styling on the two shoes reflects Hellz Bellz designer Lanie Barcena’s own dichotomous take on fashion, which she describes as “tomboy chic” and “edgy feminine.” We swoon because that is the very lane we here at HighSnobette feel most at home in.

Both styles will be available at Karmaloop and Wish

A couple more shots exclusive to HighSnobette after the flip. (Wait ’til you see the zipper on the hightops! You’re gonna pass.right.out!)

Women’s Nike Hightops at New York’s West Boutique

18 November 2008, 19.38 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

A clump of Nike shoes just arrived at West sneaker boutique, located in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Terrorist-fist pump to owner Lester, who is an all around good guy and not at all your typical snot-nosed boutique owner, (who, god knows where they ever get the balls to be that way in the first place!)

^^I like the colors in these: the sea-foam blue Swoosh, the royal purple laces, the flourescent bottoms, very nice. Do I like the skinny Velcro straps? Not so sure about those.

There’s another pair on the other side, good for those who like that Army/Navy feel.

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.

Puma Kid’s Shoes: Insane Levels of Cuteness!!

05 September 2008, 21.59 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Skateboarding, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

The things sneaker companies are designing for the babies these days. Just crazy. Back when my kid was a wee one the ONLY cool baby sneakers were Jordans. Now Boo-Boo can have a collection as good as his Mom or Dad! These Puma First Round Deer hightops are available now on Overkill and they are off they are, in a nutshell, off the hinges.

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!

Vans: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Haloween!

12 August 2008, 21.36 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

 It’s feeling like fall in NYC, isn’t it?? I’ve been feeling the chill in the air and thinking, "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! Not yet!! I’m not ready for summer to be over!" But even if I’m not, Vans is and they’ve got you covered for Haloween if you’re one of those types that likes to coordinate:

LaCoste @ WSA

31 July 2008, 20.12 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Fashion, Shoes, Sneakers | No comments »

LaCoste was actually at WSA and Compass, but like a dummy, I didn’t visit the booth at Compass, where, I’m told by Lacoste p.r. champ Emalie Adcock, there were was lots of cool Vault stuff that wasn’t at the WSA. Oh well, the stuff at the WSA was still pretty great.

^^These bright-pink hightops were causing quite the ruckus in the booth. I had to wrestle them away from a sales rep and as soon as I was done shooting them he snatched them right back.

After the flip, see Amalie’s faves, as well as another pair of hightops and some sporty flats.

Keep @ Compass

Keep I believe was the only all-female brand at Compass, and it repped with its usual adorable/smart array of shoes. My faves were the gingham wedges. There’s something cute and funny about them; a dressed-up pair of chanqletas for days when you want to impress the nighborhood.

Creative Rec @ Compass

29 July 2008, 15.49 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | No comments »

I made it out to Vegas! First thing I did was to visit the Compass show, a long overdue, hip, alternative to the WSA shoe show. It was mostly men’s shoes, but there was some great stuff there for women, too. First up, Creative Rec, which has been killing it with its women’s product:

^^As you can see, hightops are preparting to go higher AND glossier. These are just stunning.
