Street Style Goes Glam

After her stunning performance of XO during the 2014 Brit Awards, Beyonce posed for a photo before boarding her private jet in one of my favorite Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s to date! beyonce_rimenyc_rime_streetstyle_nike-dunk-sky-hi-mesh_wedge-sneakers

I was a little unsure at first and maybe thought they were an unreleased premium version (given her status) but my faves were not mistaken. Kudos Bey!

Puma X Solange Knowles “Girls of Blaze”

“I will be the first to admit, sneakers were always mostly used in my lifestyle in an athletic setting. However, once I moved to New York that changed. When you’re walking from spot to spot, hopping in and out of cabs and the train, by mid-day the thing that suffers the most are your feet. Going out at night? Forget about it! So I started to try to structure my outfits around a statement sneaker honestly out of practicality.”

“I think women have really focused on the idea that sexiness and femininity is a state of mind, really projecting confidence throughout the voice of saying when I feel good, I look good. That can be interpreted in so many ways…but certainly a level of comfort can exist. You will never have more fun at the club when you are wearing sneakers really dancing your ass off! I’ve also noticed the gender lines have crossed so much when it comes to sneakers as well. Women are wearing men’s sneakers, and I can’t tell you how many men have asked me if the Discs from my collection will come in larger sizes so they can rock them as well!”

Music: Beyoncé – Drunk In Love ft. Kanye West

Kanye hops on the remix to Beyoncé’s smash hit Drunk In Love. After playing Yeezus down to the ground it was refreshing to hear Ye’s voice on a new track with a fun flow. Listen close as he hints at the visuals of Bound 2 with fiancé Kim Kardashian. Can you find the line?

 

 

Back, back, back into time: Converse 1970′s Chuck Taylor All Star

Converse takes us back into time with the original 1970 silhouette of the Chuck Taylor shoe. Delightfully this time around it is equipped with a crazy comfy insole that is bouncy to the touch. As a devoted converse wearer (in the summer time of course) I can attest to the process of breaking every single pair I own. Undoubtedly the 1970 silhouette is a must cop.

 

Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection

The collection takes inspiration from the various aspects of New Orleans that make the city unique.

 

After returning from an out of this world trip to Houston’s Area 72 facility in 2013, Nike Sportswear heads to New Orleans. Shifting focus from the extraterrestrial inspiration of last years Area 72 collection back toward earth, the Big Easy’s festive and diverse atmosphere serves up a platter of footwear your senses won’t soon forget.

 

As the NOLA Gumbo League Collection pays homage to what happens on the hardwood, the Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection lionizes the characteristics that make New Orleans different from anyplace else: the food, culture and distinctive wildlife.

 

FLYSTEPPER 2K3

In New Orleans, alligators are king of the bayou. In remembrance of another king’s first pair of Nike’s, Nike Sportswear combines the elevated silhouette of the Flystepper and adds the signature perforated quarter panels of the Zoom 2K3. Featuring faux-alligator strap enclosures, the real tribute to the tough skin of Alligator Mississippiensis takes the form of a raised synthetic covering the toe, which if I may add is my favorite part and the closest I’ll get to a pair of Yeezy II Red October’s.

AIR UP ‘14

Crawfish are a NOLA staple and any New Orleanian will tell you they are best when boiled. A crave-worthy take on the Nike Air Up mimics fresh-out-of-the-pot crawdads. These sneakers get the job done with no seasoning required, featuring a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic.

KD VI “Illusion”

Not everything is what it first appears to be in New Orleans. Similarly, Durant defies the perception of a near seven-footer – an illusion of sorts. His limitless scoring range is redefining the perception of a forward. Celebrating the magic of KD’s versatility, the KD VI Illusion showcases hand-drawn patterns on the upper emulating Durant’s fluidity on the court. A glow-in-the-dark outsole also represents the “spark” of KD’s game.

LeBron 11 “Gator King”

Inspired by the fearsome alligator, the king of the bayou, the LEBRON 11 Gator King is a bold expression of royalty and power. Gators, often a symbol of protection in New Orleans culture, influence graphic textures throughout the shoe. Invisible to the naked eye, hand-drawn patterns come to life as the Hyperposite bucket of the shoe glows in the dark. The musings of majestic color in deep purples, greens and gold are derived from the “Rex” – king of carnival celebrations.
