Going Down in Height

Going Down in Height

>>So I'm fully aware that because I've sprained my ankle, heels are out of the question for a good month or so.  Good timing really as I had been meaning to augment my trainer/sneaker count.  These Nike Liberty Patchwork Dunks came to mind immediately but I fear I'm way way way too late in the game to buy them.  I will be using my secret sources to try and find them but if not… I hear JJB Sports is closing down eh…

    My flatmate has a pair of these, they’re gorgeous. I’m pretty sure they all went on the morning they re-opened though…

    I’ve always feared a foot injury that would force me into flat shoes *shudder*

    I didn’t realize you’d need a month to heal. That’s quite a sprain! Have you
    tried this source?

    THE NEON GREEN PAIR. Love these shoes!
    Also, I’m pretty sure the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals collection is due to hit stores (if it already hasn’t) sometime this month. Personally, I HAVE to get ahold of one of the winged pair!

    Those are fun.
    I’m in the same boat. I sprained my ankle about a month ago and I’m still not ready for heels. I never realized I didn’t own many flats.

    The tectonic kids here have been wearing Nike dunks all over town last summer, and I had to admit I was a bit envious of some of these pairs 🙂 This one rocks too!

    I got me mine ;-), my post on them is here: http://leopardprintandlace.blogspot.com/2009/02/i-got-my-heart-broken-on-valentines-day.html
    and the nike 1964 store in shoreditch still had a couple of pairs, smallest being 6.5 i hear (this was last week…)! I went on a mission to get these on the release day! And you would have rocked these well, it would have been nice to see you in kicks!
    dont go JJB! all the shittier shoes lol!

    These are great sneaks! You should get them or maybe consider sneaks in silk a la Lanvin.
    But whatever it may be, I’ll surely miss seeing you in your heels so I shall be for the time being wishing for your fastest recovery!!!! XXXX

    Those are the cutest sneakers I’ve seen in a long time. I think that I’ll have to snag myself a pair.

    I think they have them at Provider here in Melbourne. I can check if you really want them?
