a more full-coverage

Once preceded by its granola pandora charms pas cher reputation, Birkenstock has reinvented itself as a go-to brand for comfy and stylish sandals. Since debuting an eye-catching collab with Opening Ceremony earlier this year, the brand is back to bless our arches once again, this time by putting an unexpected twist on the Arizona Shearling Slides Reese Witherspoon wore on repeat this fall. To be quite honest, I’ve been dreaming pandora bracelet pas cher about these fuzzy slides ever since they first debuted in the actress’s street-style looks last month. I told myself the impending New York City winter meant I should prioritize boots and full-coverage footwear, or else I’d find myself ill-prepared and sliding down the subway slush in a matter of weeks. But when Birkenstock went on to give those very Reese Witherspoon-approved slippers the full-on *glitter* treatment, I knew it was meant to be. Not only were the cozy slippers upgraded pandora pas cher france with a shimmering, glitter-dusted finish — not the type that sheds everywhere and somehow never actually leaves — the plush shearling lining was also given an electric purple makeover. What’s more, Birkenstock released the same silver glitter-dusted design to its Boston Genuine Shearling Glitter Dust Clog, which offers a more full-coverage look fit for all the elements. As someone whose upcoming New Year’s resolution pandora bracelet solde is to establish a no-shoes rule in my room once and for all, I’ve taken to wearing my Birkenstocks around my apartment non-stop and parking them at my bedroom door. With the drop in temperatures and primal urge to wrap up in everything cozy immediately upon getting home, Birkenstock’s move to give the Arizona Shearling sandals a glittery makeover is just what I needed to add a bit of flair to my quest for floors free of city germs. Plus, they’re just plain fun.

Who said man was not meant to fly

As another 365 days comes gradually winds down to a close, the incredible run of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG has now arrived at its final release scheduled for 2019. Fittingly entitled the “Bloodline” colorway, this next installment is dedicated to MJ’s classic 1985 “Who Said Man Was Not Meant To Fly” commercial as it boldly prints those very words atop the insoles. Essentially remixing the signature Chicago-style color palette, this updated rendition is engineered with two-toned tumbled leathers in contrasting black and white, and throws in vibrant red accents to the laces, outsoles, and upper nike jordan 1 australia cheap tapings to provide some appropriate Bulls-inspired flair. As part of Jordan Brand‘s “Fearless Ones” Air Jordan 1 collection, Edison Chen‘s CLOT has brought its signature silk detailing to the Air Jordan 1 Mid. Following in the footsteps of CLOT’s recent slate of silken Air Force 1s, these AJ1 Mids feature intricate detailing and potent patterns in equal measures. Chen aimed to “build a bridge” between his home country of China and the West with the design, so the upper is dressed in a welcoming white silk that ’s equipped with all-over tonal graphics. It’s quite likely that this top layer wears away to reveal an alternate- colored base like so many of CLOT’s other nike air pegasus 34 outlet australia Nike/Jordan collaborations, but images of this possible effect in action have not yet surfaced. The embroidered black midfoot Swoosh provides an interesting detail, starting out with tightly knit construction towards the front before gradually “fading” and becoming thinner towards the heel. Black laces and trim around the collar further the contrast, and a circular lace deubre inspired by Chinese currency adds even more traditional flair. A printed graphic appears adidas nmd r1 womens sale on the insole, and the look is completed by a white midsole/red outsole. Following the release of the mid-profile collaboration with FACETASM, the Air Jordan 1 silhouette is re-routing its focus towards its ever-popular Retro High OG sibling next week with the welcoming of its brand new “Bloodline” colorway. Designed to honor the 1985 ad of MJ gliding to the basket for a from-the-free-throw-line dunk, this forthcoming iteration nods to a major moment in Jordan Brand’s history that inspired the iconic Jumpman logo we’ve come to know and love. Arriving as an updated style of the classic “Bred” and “Chicago” renditions, this new makeover uses a familiar set of white, red, and black hues, painted onto its tumbled leather constructions, and prints the words ““Who said man was not meant to fly” atop adidas tubular cheap sale the insoles to further allude to the aforementioned commercial.
