Superga @ FFANY

06 June 2008, 15.28 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Fashion, Sneakers | No comments »

What I like about Italian shoe brand Superga is that it’s not only a legitimate brand with a heritage, but it’s also got love for women. Converse may dabble in femmy colors and treatments, but for Superga, there’s a clear focus on keeping up with current fashion trends.

Snobettiest: Creative Recreation Spring 2008 Greatest Hits!!!

10 May 2008, 01.05 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers | No comments »

Creative Rec is still doing it and it’s one of the few sneaker brands that takes designing for ladies as seriously as it does for the fellas. I’m told the following group represent the best of spring 2008:

^^^The baddest one of all. This Gallo Hi is just plain ridiculous (I repeat, Ree.Dick.You.Less) and it’s the one in the line-up that wins this brand HighSnobettiest item of the day!

Etsy We Love

27 February 2008, 17.03 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

Etsy has been highlighted here before. If you haven’t been, it’s a site where people can sell their stuff. It’s kind of like EBay except there’s no time limit or bidding. And I don’t know about all Etsy categories (like furniture and various sundry other crap), but the people who sell clothing there seem to be younger and a lot less cuckoo-cuckoo than the typcial Ebay sellers with their flashing, flower-filled wallpapers and 15 paragraphs on how you’re gonna burn in hell if you don’t send them their money immediately and don’t even THINK about trying to send anything back. Even if, like in my case, they send you dresses that end up being much bigger than you thought ’cause they were pinned back in the photos or shirts with runs they forgot to mention or size 11 shoes that were actually a MEN’s size 11 and so on down the line.

So basically even thought you have to sift through a bunch of gross hippie crap on Etsy–plus ever new damn Mom thinking she has to start a infant clothing line (Ugh!)–it’s still a LOT better than Ebay. Plus, besides vintage stuff, there are a lot of designers there who make there own stuff and some of it is pretty cute.

So, here are some things I came across this past week that I thought you guys would appreciate. I listed the seller’s name and linked to it under the image:

Click to the right to see more images including some AMAZING retro Nikes. (But because the backend of HighSnobette can sometimes be a total pain in the ASS, I can’t link to the buyers on the other page. You’ll just have to go to the site and search for them. You’re a smart bunch, I’m sure you can manage.)

Stella @ Adidas

19 February 2008, 21.30 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Sneakers | No comments »

There are some new goodies up at Adidas from Stella McCartney (who, on a major side note, gets props for seeing the trainwreck that Heather Mills was LONG before Paul married her. Next time listen to your girl, Daddy!).

Adidas should still be counting its lucky stars that Ms. McCartney collaborates with them because not only is her line–for the most part–perfect for us femmy jocks, but her stylish outlook clearly has influenced other Adidas design teams as well.

Nike Women’s @ OverKillShop.com

OverKillShop is serving up some new models of Nike footwear, designed specifically for us females. Some of ‘em are just gorgeous and should make more than a few of the fellas green with envy. For a change!

I started with my favorites and worked my way down. Though in retrospect, I probably liked the Zoom Blazer Lows better than the Capris Mid CVS. The print is what put it so high up on my list. And yeah, you know, I got a thing for hightops, too.

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.

RTEmagicC Superga 001.jpg Superga: U.S. Launch?

^^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.
