Items of great beauty

And you thought I was busy painting. Well, I was.

I went out to the BHV (I love the BHV - just the best shop in the world) to buy paint and I came back with paint, and these beautiful, gorgeous, to die for trainers / sneakers. Not from the BHV, by the way, but from Man Woman Shift. A great little store on Rue de Charonne.



I guess they're opinion dividers, and I'm pretty certain that you won't all like them.

But, hey, trust me. These shoes + dark-dye denim = too cool for school.

Which is lucky - I could never have afforded these mothers if I was still at school...

(they're Nike Dunk High Supreme for the sneaker freaks amongst you...but then, if you are, you already knew that)

And, of course, I'm sure you already know that I live within just a few miles of the Nike Headquarters......shall I go and see if I can find another pair for you? As for the sneaker freaks among us, I'm one of them...but in more of a different sort of twisted and -- shall we say -- naughty sort of way. Don't ask..... but let me just extend my love for those mothers. They're hot. But maybe the color does need some changing.

Lewis, nothing surprises me about you. I'm not going to ask....ok, I am - tell me more about your sneaker thing...I want to know more....;-)

Brett, I thank you.

catherine a dit…

Oh, they're hot. White shirt and some killer shades and you're good to go.

Catherine, exactly. They are so hot.

I had to buy them. Officially had no choice.

Mike a dit…

The those shoes are more than HOT!!!!! Let's not discuss that I still have my gray Nike Dunk Lo Pro's with pink and green accents. ;-) Maybe it's time to revisit my old 'hipster' ways!

Mike, I thought you'd like them. My (older, straighter, less happy) brother has called them my 'mid-life-crisis' sneakers.

I'm far too young for a mid life crisis!

And when I do have one it'll be a sports car....and a younger trophy husband ;-)

Marjolein, they most certainly are.

Very yellow.

I'll take it as a compliment!

Daryl, I'm pleased you're getting some relief! What did we do before aircon? Sweat a lot, I guess....

We're just having non-stop thunderstorms here the last 24 hours. Quite the drama!

Oh Aims, you're such a sports fan!

Now, NBA - is that football, baseball or basketball? I never know with those 'north american sports'...

Glad you approve of the footwear.

CawfeeGuy a dit…
