Only for the Hardcore

>> Following my mammoth Port Eliot post, I thought I’d follow up with something short ‘n’ sweet.  This is basically an excuse to post Jamie xx’s new All Under One Roof Raving track, which samples Mark Leckey’s 1999 all time awesome art short Fiorucci Made me Hardcore and an excerpt from the raving episode of Spaced.  Fiorucci.  Spaced.  Jamie xx – all good things.  But obviously the subject of this video are these most excellent white leather Ashish and Topshop sliders, made by Buffalo.  Again, all good things.  The low-top trainers sold out in nano seconds but for some reason, the sliders are still available in a range of sizes, which I preferred anyway.  I reserved them in my size about a month ago and then promptly forgot about them but the lovely folks in personal shopping in Topshop Oxford Circus kept them for me until I bothered to pick them up today.  Thumbs up personal shoppers!  What makes these the utmost of ace-ness of course are the LED lights embedded into the soles.  Not just one tiresome pattern of blinking lights, but a remote control that goes through about 10 different modes of blinking rainbow lights, with the ability to control the colour selection and brightness.  I’m basically going to be making like Tyres (please watch Spaced if you haven’t done so – you won’t regret it and I can drop more gratuitous references) and bounce around my home raving it up to anything from the telephone to the screaming kids next door.
