    Wedges are lovely when paired with pants, skirts and dresses. With the right wedge height and flattering shoe color; your legs will definitely be the center of attraction with these shoes. Try out grey and brown colors and show off your legs in hot summer dresses while you still can.

    The ankle boots are still in trend and can be carried through to the winter period.  Ankle boots look gorgeous with shorts and practically any pants they are paired up with. Try out vibrant colors to bring out the colorful summer feeling or simply go for the timeless black boots which can work with everything in your closet.

    Dress up evening wear with bows; shoes decorated with bows have a girly feel to them but exude elegance at the same time. Go for velvet bow shoes for an extra touch of elegance and sophistication.

    Last but not least; flats are a timeless summer favorite.  Flats are comfortable and can work with practically any existing outfit trend.

    Remember that with shoes the general rule is to wear it if it fits. A number of people will buy shoes to wear for the next couple of months; the shoe should therefore be a worthwhile investment. If you are strapped for money it is best to settle for simple black shoes which can work with different outfits in your closet.

    Be adventurous and try daring colors or slightly higher heels than you normally go for.

    Sneaking Out for Limited Edition Sneakers

    04. July 2011

    The end of the summer season doesn’t just mean the end of the glorious sunny days. When you look at what’s still left of the brightness in that other side of the room, season transition means new cool designs and new items from our most adored brands and designers to help us prepare for the incoming cold breezes and the monotonous whiteness of snow-carpeted background. In tropical landscapes these new designs could also add life to the gloomy ambiance of the monsoon rains and occasional light drizzles.

    From the brilliant minds of the designers at Nike, here are some of the cool stuff that you should watch out for:

     

    Nike Air Pegasus ’92

    It’s a thing of beauty, hands down to that. The original 1992 design is recently innovated to grace the new century, and the start of a new decade with explosive stylishness hiding behind the mask of a minimalist design. It has a suede and nylon mesh upper with very comfortable soles that defines comfort as simplified sophistication. Limited pairs are set to be released on August 2011 but some sources state that these must-haves are already available for pre-order.

    Nike x Hurley “Phantom 4D Air Max 90

    They say that you can size up a man by the shoes he wears, but with this pair, who needs a man? This can already stand up on its own. The Phantom 4D Artwork by Dalek, the Hurley upper boardshorts graphics and the mesmerizing teal, blue and purple midfoot color fusion makes it your love at first sight; the Nike Flywire Technology makes it your soul mate. According to The Drop NYC, this pair is part of a collection that has already been launched during the opening of Salvation Malibu last July 1. Only a limited number of 500 pairs were made for this design.

    Nike SB x Primitive  P-Rod Cali 2.5

    That, by just the sound of it is already hardcore. If you can make your way to Berlin On the 7th of July, then you may just be able to savor yourself with the lavishness of this pair’s super limited edition status. The 24 pairs of this model are the privileged perks that you may avail on the opening of the Primitive store in Berlin. It’s a celebration of certified Nike SB glory with the embroidered logo of Primitive on the side as the non-stop display of pyrolympics.

    Nike In Hot-Water Over “Get High” Shirts

    24. June 2011

    Shoe and athletic apparel giant Nike is once again on the limelight, after the company is accused by anti-drug advocates of promoting drug use with the release of its recent shirts bearing the phrases “Dope,” “Get High” and “Ride Pipe.”

    The anti-drug advocates already written Nike to immediately pull-out the seemingly drug promoting shirts. According to reports, Boston city mayor Thomas Menino had joined the call for the removal of the shirts as he sent a letter to the general manager of a Niketown store in a popular shopping district in Boston after he saw  the shirts in the store window.

    Menino already asked the store to take down the shirts, saying the company failed to take drug abuse seriously. “Your window display of T-shirts with drug and profanity wordplay are out of keeping with the character of Boston’s Back Bay, our entire city and our aspirations for our young people not to mention common sense,” Menino said in the letter.

    Nike for its part denied accusations they are promoting drug use with their newest shirts saying the terms are part of the lingo used by the skaters, snowboarders and participants in other extreme sports it’s trying to target with the shirts. It was learned that the Nike shirts became available last June 1 in conjunction with the launch of an action sports campaign.

    The “Dope” shirt shows the image of a pill bottle upended with surfboards and skateboards pouring out. Not all the shirts have controversial terms. Other shirts include the phrases “F Gravity” and “Get Wet.”The shoe company defended that the new shirts promote sports not illegal drug use.

    “Sport is an antidote to drugs,” Nike spokeswoman Erin Dobson said in a statement. “There is no better adrenalin rush than catching a wave or landing a trick,” Dobson added. Dobson explained the language is the same that skaters, BMX’er’s and surfers use every day around the world.

    Nike is not new to controversy, in 2008 the company’s “Air Stab” line of shoes was pulled out in London after a spate of knife deaths around that time.  The company also had a series of ads for its Hyperdunk shoes that included images and slogans that some critics considered anti-gay.

    Nike supported the campaign at first but later withdrew the ads. Moreover, the anti-drug crusaders advised Nike to just stick to its signature slogan “Just Do It” instead of the seemingly anti-drug phrases.
