My latest search has been for the perfect high top sneakers. With sadness I admit that my sneaker collection is, ahem, less than impressive. I guess I’ve just chosen to focus on different shoe styles. The past couple of weeks, I’ve witnessed my boyfriend coming home with insanely cool kicks, sparking some mad jealousy. I mean, he has an awesome assortment of sneakers. They’re his thing—boys, I promise to tell you if he ever decides to blog about his shoes! It would serve as some great man inspo.
Anyways, I found several pairs of sneakers that I just liked, not loved, and thought that there had to be better. I looked to the usual sneaker contenders such as Lanvin and Saint Laurent without luck. When you’re dishing out that much cash, you want to love what you’re buying.
I found my babies when I wasn’t even looking, which typically is the way these things happen. I walked into Barney’s out of pure boredom, without the intention of actually buying anything. But there they were; metallic high top Acne Studios sneaks. They were fun without being over the top, a quality that can be hard to find many times.
