Onitsuka Tiger: More from S/S 09

01 October 2008, 20.31 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | No comments »

‘Member last week I put up all those shots of the Ontisuka Tiger Tokidoki collabo shoes? Well I took other images as well, but I took a little time out from this site so I’m just getting them up today. One of the things Onitsuka is doing for spring is this Chinese-astrology-inspired line. I must say, the art of some of these shoes is quite amazing. Check out this one:

DC (Baby) Shoes: An Awwwwwww Moment!

25 September 2008, 19.04 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

After seeing the DC’s women’s S/S09 shoes and clothing collection I was about read to head out when I was stopped in my tracks by the DC Kids collection. Can I just restate for about the fourth time how jealous I am of all of you who have kids that are still wee? ‘Cause I am. Hate you all. Back in my son’s baby days, the only options were Jordans and truth be told I was always too flat busted to ever cop him a pair.

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.

Onitsuko Tiger Tokidoki Collabo Continues: SS09!!

25 September 2008, 15.08 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

I finally got to see the latest Onitsuka Tiger Tokidoki collabo kicks, which will drop in February and March 2009. This time the collection includes a range of sport flats, which are just adorable. Overall I’d say the designs are more understated that the last batch, which is in keeping with the latest sneaker colorway trends.

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.)

Heyday Footwear @ S.L.A.T.E.: Love those Baby Blues

29 August 2008, 17.56 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | 1 comment »

We posted about Heyday for the first time last week. Natch, we visited with the brand while we were at the show. The brand still doesn’t have a line specifically sized for women, though designer Darin Hager is totally in tune with the love women have for kicks, and includes chicks with kicks among his promotional images. He was also quick to serve up three Spring ‘09 styles he thought women would appreciate:

After the flip, Darin’s assistant, Monica, models those creamy, yellow hightops we showed you last week. Monica strikes a fierce pose and a happy one and you, the reader, get to decide what her stronger look is.

A minute back I mentioned that Creative Rec had some adorable kid’s shoes, which match up with the adults. While at Project, I was able to snap some of those cute combos:

I Want a Purple Fila Tracksuit!!

27 August 2008, 23.32 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Fashion, Sneakers | No comments »

Ever since the U.S.-based Fila got taken over by the Korea-based Fila a year or so back, it’s been on an upward swing. Shoe design got an upgrade and it signed perfect-fit rap artist, Nasir Jones. The company is just now delving into women’s kicks (cute, albeit a tad heavy on the Freestyle inspiration), but it was this purple track jacket that stole my heart. Maybe it was the over-airconditioned halls of Project, but there’s just something so snuggly about it!

Gola X Christian Lacroix !!!

26 August 2008, 16.44 | Posted in Design, Fashion, Sneakers | No comments »

news1068 Gola X Christian Lacroix !!!As early as I can remember, Christian Lacroix has always been a  serious couture reference ,although you can agree, that in the US he’s been overshadowed by the media’s fascination with the Lagerfelds and Gallianos.Nonetheless the man is an Icon who unlike most High end fashion Folks truly gets  the crossover of Fashion & Sneakers,gotta love that:

"In a way, trainers are to the 21st century what shimmering ties and multicolored vests were to the dandies of the 19th century—a distinctive sign, a personal signature,”-C.Lacroix

The collaboration with Gola , british sneaker brand created in the 1900’s,launches in January 2009,with men’s And women’s styles,hooray!
