For a while now Nike trainers haven’t really been inspiring me and that opinion has only worsened since seeing their recent efforts. When I came across their new Storm Warrior Hi I was gobsmacked to see that across the internet people were actually writing positively about them, words such as “dope” “awesome” cropped up, one saying “this boot withstands the elements without sacrificing your style” !!! Excuse me?! Open your eyes, they are hideous! Maybe I’ve missed something… Currently only available in Japan, oh I’m so gutted, and sorry gents only available for us lucky ladies. Don’t all rush at once!
It got me thinking who might sport these…The only person that I could think of who wouldn’t want to sacrifice her style but still maintain practical would be our old friend Vicky! Another splendid choice of footwear there Vicky.

To celebrate the launch of the delicious Nike Air Royalty Macaron, French boutique Colette hosted an event called Cooklette where guests were invited to customise their very own Nike Macaron with loads of wee macaroons!! Sweet. (Pictures via high snobiety)
Just back from a wonderful trip in the snowy Italian Alps, so easing myself back into normality..booooo. Here’s a film by French street artist WK Interact bringing NBA player for the Miami Heat Dwyane Wade to life on the streets of Manhattan. Enjoy.
Pharrell William’s turned up in Cannes for the 2010 NRJ Music Awards wearing a pair of Nike Snowboarding x Arbito Zoom Force 1 Boots. In my opinion the word bozo springs to mind, maybe he should hang out with vicky (see Chanel Post). Make your own mind up about his choice of shoe for the occasion…
Today my driving instructor suggested it was time to book my driving test, woop (years of procrastinating about sitting my test and now I’m almost there, best get shopping!) Ok, so I’m not having a quarter-life-crisis, simply looking at potential wheels that I could aspire to owning one day after the day when I win the Euro Millions…Well it’s fun to dream, so here’s a wee wish list.
Dodge Charger 1969
Ford Capri Classic
…Lamborghini Reventon. Yes I know, totally ridiculous but IT IS A WISH LIST!! Only 20 of these were made back in 2008 and went for a very cool One Million Euros each. In 2010 the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster will be available to 10 lucky people who are willing to part with 1.2 Million Euros. Check out the advert below to see whats we’ll all be missing out on.
Bet you wish you were one of the chosen ones?!
Dubbed the “Sharpie Car” this Lamborghini Gallardo was hand painted by Miami artist Jona Cerwinske.

Shelby Mustang 1967
The Batmobile 1955 Lincoln Futura Concept Car , heeee heee, I couldn’t resist!
You know what, seeing as global warming is going to melt the ice caps and we are all going to be flooded I may as well splash out on a motor boat to get about in too…
Ahhhh, one day. Right, I’m off to buy a lottery ticket.

Trainers make me very happy so here is a collection of the good, the bad and odd…
Adidas Adicolour H, The first trainer that comes with a set of paints to customise your own sneek.
Adidas 3way Consortium 3rd Drop
Adidas Superskate (consortium) Part of their celebration of ’60 Years of Soles and Stripes’ collection…. I’m going to have to start counting my coppers for these beauties.
Nike Auto Flight High
Nike Blazer Boneyards (Stussy)
Adidas SLVR collection….. no, no, NO, NOOOO!!! so wrong on SO, SOOO MANY LEVELS!!!
Vuitton High Top X Kanye West… These bad boys were showed off in January for sale this summer and they are hideous. Tassels?! TASSELS?!!!!please Kanye, find something better to do with yourself.
Reebok Pump Omni Light (Mogwai). Gremlin’s insprired trainers… The folk at Reebok thought it would be a good idea to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Gremlins by bringing out a Monster Pack. I think they should of just watched the film instead of investive time and creativity into these furry beasts. Really, who thought it was a good idea?!!!
Jeremy Scott for Adidas (JS Wings). So fly.
….and finally the odd
Adidas X Jeremy Scott ( 3 Tongue). Inicially I thought these were ridiculous but they are actually quite sweet, especially with the bumblebee colours.
Nike Dunk (21 Mercer). Cool effect but I can’t look at these too long.
