11 sneakers your feet would like to kick it with now

August 26, 2014

Whether you live on Flexington Avenue and you’re buried in Excel all day or you’re pulling clopening shifts and your Tumblr gets more attention than your iMessages, you’ve got some extra dough burning in your pocket and your feet could use some love. I know you do!

So, where are my coins going this month? Not on a big fat date or a weekend away. Fashion over function!!!!—ing in social settings, man! Behold, my almost reasonable list of sneakers that I’ve got my eye on instead of 2-for-1 apps and bullshit cocktails from a hip new bar with a subpar Tinder fling.

Details: This style is back and everywhere. Stand out with the matte metallic version. $$


Above: Balenciaga “Arena” sneakers
Details: These are rad. And expensive. Don’t pay rent this month. Buy these. $$$$


Above: Nike Air Max 90 Ice City sneaker
Spoiler alert: I already purchased these and have since been stopped several times. Last week a dude wanted to BUY THEM OFF MY FEET. I declined because tetanus. $$$

BONUS ROUND: While writing this post, I tore 3-5 ligaments in my right ankle. Yes, while I was blogging I tore something. –Nah, I was trying out for a club volleyball team in the city and landed on it to the most extreme level of vigorous activity (aka spiking the ball in all of it’s glory)…during warm-ups.  And so here I am watching Gossip Girl season 2 with my moon boot shopping for sneakers to break-up once my foot fuses into a tree trunk with all of the ice packs that I have layered on thick.
