  • Adidas Decade Lo - Dia De Los Muertos. shoe 1

    Adidas has an enterprising shoe design; the Decade Lo “Dia De Los Muertos”. In Spanish, “Dia De Los Muertos” means “The Day Of The Dead”. This Day is celebrated on November 1 and 2, together with the Roman Catholic celebration of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. The Decade Lo, as its name suggests, has a low cut at the heel. This shoe is entirely black. The festive day is commemorated with the prints. There are two basic graphic illustrations of the skulls. One of these skulls has a hat-like structure encircling it. This hat looks like the Mexican sombrero.

    I like the colorful print. The sober darkness of death is dispelled by the colorful skulls. I like the smooth finishing of the shoe. It allows me to clean my shoe easily by using a damp cloth to wipe away the dust. Black is a good color for outdoor shoes. The smooth surface allows the superficial stains to be wiped off and the shoe will look as good as new. The black soles are purposeful in function. On those two festive days, the living relatives visit the graves to pay respects to the dead. The black soles are good for stepping around in the open cemetery.

    Adidas Decade Lo “Dia De Los Muertos” is available as a special, limited edition at Sold Out, for €125 a pair.

    Back in Time with Nike’s Vintage Shoes

    I swore off the Nike Cortez and other recent remakes by Nike after owning a pair of the Air Cortez about five years ago. I did not care for the updates made on the Cortez and other vintage shoes in Nike’s effort to capitalize on the trend toward clean style and leather. I know that designs and technology have advanced since the 1970s and 1980s but I have a pair of shoes for running already. I want the old school Nikes just to wear around without worrying about keeping my shoes clean.

    The release of a slew of Nike classics like the Cortez and the Elite this fall shows that this formidable shoe giant is responsive. They must have heard my desire for the yellowed laces and outsoles of these classics as I cursed the natural yellowing of my new pair of Air Cortez. The vintage shoes made by Nike combine the subdued colors like crimson and Kelly green with the comfort that will keep you strolling along.

    This Prada Linea Rossa Croc Sneaker is sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

    This luxury shoe features red or black crocodile leather and a contrasting grey mesh. Prada is one of the top names in fashion, so you know these shoes are great quality. But how much would you pay for a pair of sneakers? $500? $800?

    Well then, these may not be for you. These sneaks will set you back $995 a pair. I actually like the look of them a lot, but come on. A thousand bucks for sneakers?

    You can get them at Neiman Marcus stores or order them online at NeimanMarcus.com.

    Reebok “Chucky” Ventilator

  • Reebok Chucky Ventilator 

    A few months back, we posted here about the Reebok Halloween Pack. Now as October is approaching, these shoes are finally coming out.

    The shoe above is the “Chucky” Ventilator. These sneakers are available right now at Mita Sneakers and will be in stores across the country within the next week or two.

    Though I’m a fan of the Chucky movies, I’m not sure about this shoe. The red, white and blue colorway is decent, but there’s nothing special about the styling.  The swirling is okay, but more than that, they look a little out of date and cheap.  But hey, maybe they are supposed to look this way.

    Check the next page for more photos.

    Reebok Pump Omni Lite “Year Of The Rat” Zodiac Calendar Sneaker.

  • Reebok Pump Omni Lite Year of the rat 2008

    Reebok Pump plans to launch its new line, called the Pump Omni Lite “Year Of The Rat” in 2008. The price tag is $99.99 at Reebok. The Chinese use the Rat as the zodiac calendar mascot for 2008. The sneaker upper is in rich burgundy. This is better than the traditional blood-red that the Chinese use as their ethnic color during Chinese New Year. The symbol of the Chinese zodiac for 2008 is the rat. A white rat is printed on the sole of the sneaker. The sole has another special feature. The Chinese word of rat is printed to cover the entire bottom sole. The unique touch in the design is again seen when the main character word sits atop the white rat’s tail.

    Another feature which I appreciate is the use of red speckled gold plastic reinforcement for the side of the shoe. The white outer sole sets against the red and makes the colors prominent. The gold-red “Z” adds the feisty touch of style to break the monotony of the burgundy. I think the black shoe laces are a stark contrast to the red. Since the basic colors are already used for different parts of the shoe, the designer reused the black for the laces. However, shoe laces can be removed and substituted with your own preferred color. I will do that to customize my sneakers!

  • Dsquared Patent Logo Sneakers 

    These retro-inspired sneakers have a modern twist with black and yellow patent leather.

    The Dsquared Patent Logo Sneakers are a little too wild for my taste, but I can see why some people might like them. They are really unique with the bright yellow patent leather stripes and trim contrasting with red laces. The golden “Kick It” hardware and message on the tongue are nice touches.

    These shoes are quite expensive – $400, but they will certainly stand-out in the crowd. You can get them soon at Saks Fifth Avenue or other major department stores, or pre-order them right now online at saksfifthavenue.com.

  • Hugo Boss Wolfram Sneaker 

    Hugo Boss is a known name in fashion, but not normal for sneakers. This Hugo Boss Wolfram is shaped like a sneaker but can be worn almost like a dress shoe. The sleek styling features fabric panels and a soft suede toe cap.

    The dark brown color and subtle stripes add to the cool look, while the embossed logo on the heel is a very nice touch. I can see these shoes being worn with a business casual outfit or when you get dressed up to go out, but don’t want to put on dress shoes.

    They are priced at $195 at Nordstrom and several other department stores. Check out the rest of the pictures for views from all angles.
