As I’ve stated before here on this very blog, I’m usually pretty violently opposed to sneakers being worn in any context but the gym. Flat shoes in general have to be per-retty special to get me out of my typical shoe-uniform of 4-inches-or-bust. But these! These Jeremy Scott designed shoes for Adidas are beyond cool. In fact, they’re so cool, I can’t tell whether or not they’re actually ugly. All I know is that, at the very least, these belong out of the gym and on the street. On a Brooklyn street, most likely. But even I, in all my frilly-dress-wearing, Chelsea-living, decidedly-non-hipster-being glory, would actually be psyched to try wearing these gold winged shoes. Perhaps I’d pair them with a skintight, black Herve Leger dress instead of, say, ripped denim. But I’d wear them, nonetheless.
They’ll be available in March of 2009.
