Tory Bursh Gemma Peep Toe – Wow

This one is for the ladies. I do not know how harsh this one will be on your feet, but that is what good footcare is for LOL. I like the way it looks, but I am not sure I would notice a lady wearing them. I think a lady wearing these would have to make sure that her legs are showing (YES!!! LET ME SEE THOSE LEGS).

You used be able to find them on eLuxury (I forget the price but it was up there in the 500+ range) but they are gone. I guess they didn’t make too many pairs of them or they were quite popular.

LMAO they are not Maisons, they are from Tory Bursh and are called Gemma Peep Toe and they cost 350.00. Plenty of sizes left from 6 to 11

You can still check out Maison Martin Margiela shoes on

Just keep in mind the shoe pictured above are from Tory Bursh LOL


I may be wrong about the name of the shoe… I was wrong, sorry Tory Bursh! I told yall I’m backed up in sneakers and shoes LMAO I don’t even remember where I saw this at.


On Sale: Honduras Python Ballet

I sort of get the idea of the cutesy shoes. You are in your ballet shoes and your trying to be the lady who walks on their tippy toes and who are as skinny as hell, you should probably get these. Theyscream, “look at me and how dainty I am!” How did these things get popular anyway?

What cracks me up even more is that I will see women walking in these things in the rain or on their way to work. Are they that comfortable that they can be worn all day and in the rain too?

Well, here is a pair that I like. Look like gators with the  daintiness of a petite woman flinging herself around the air.

They come in 3 different designs and the cost, get this: $95 Dollars 100% leather, from Italy. High class ladies. If your going for the light and airy look, you might as well take it there and get these.

Trying To Understan How It Works: MBT Women’s Chapa GTX

Weird and expensive sneakers for the ladies… 230 Bucks!!!!

This is an awkward looking sneaker. I do wonder how exactly this works. If it does work so well, why hasn’t anybody thought of it before? And for 240 bucks, its a really expensive experiment to find out if it really works for you or not. I’m not in a position (not yet… but I’m getting there) to buy it and then tell you about it so I guess I’m just going to have to leave it there.

They are interesting. Here is the description from

Every step you take in the MBT Chapa GTX helps tone and trim your legs while reducing strain on your feet, knees, back and entire body. Developed with extensive research, this is not your typical shoe. They are a completely new concept… the first ever physiological footwear. Essentially, they activate your body’s support and postural muscles, which means that your muscles will work more, you’ll have less strain on your joints, and you’ll just plain feel better! The rounded outsole features a key pivot point that generates natural rolling movement in the foot for even weight distribution. The MBT Chapa GTX features a rich nubuck leather and single-layer mesh upper with Dry & Cool mesh inserts for structured yet breathable support. Special antimicrobial treatment on the foam sockliner reduces odor, prolonging the life of the shoe. Glass-fiber shank provides firm support overlaid with an EVA midsole that molds to your foot. Durable, rubber outsole with lightweight cushion and traction.

Gore-Tex is part of the deal too. Weatherproof baby! I have a feeling that these work out and/or casual type sneakers will be popular. Made for walking folks.

Oh and I don’t know who is MBT… research that later.

Nice Sandals: Maison Martin Margiela Covered-Heel Wedge Sandal

Not exactly sure why its called sandals cause they look like freakin complete shoes. I mean, so what there isn’t anything around the toes except a big toe strap? LOL I seen these on The.LIFE files weblog. They didn’t have a link to the shoe sandals so I had to COMPLETELY SCOWER the internet for them… and I found them!

They are on eLuxury for $595.00 and yes they are very expensive sandals. The best part if that they have other colors. Here is the description they have on the site:

Throughout his career, Martin Margiela has maintained a low profile, seeking to focus on his groundbreaking work rather than his fame. This discretion is reflected in Margiela’s elegant, forward-thinking designs. Originally from Leuven, Belgium, Margiela is an original member of the legendary Antwerp Six fashion collective, and formerly designed for Jean Paul Gaultier and Hermés before launching his Paris-based collections.

  • Smooth grained leather
  • Open toe
  • Band over vamp
  • Wide leather band wraps around ankle and heel
  • Grained leather lining and insole
  • Leather sole with rubber heel pad
  • 4″ leather-covered wedge heel
  • Made in Italy

If I was a women, I would get them. I mean they are made in Italy for crying out loud. NOT ALLOT OF SIZES LEFT so if you are going to get them, you better do it now.

So Cal Air Force ones: Most Expensive Sneaker

I must have missed this one somehow, but here it is. Its pretty cool. not sure about putting gems on my sneaker just for me to walk around in them and loosing all those crystals.

Anyway, just thought I would post it to let you guys know its out there. As seen on Street Knowledge.

A sneaker customization company called Laced Up started a program called Solitaire Kicks made them.

On Sale at Dior Homme Radioactive Denim

These pants are too radioactive… LMAO

No, you are not ready for this. If you plan on getting these $600 pair of jeans (are they really jeans?) please get some smooth sneakers. No light bright silver or gold Converse’s that you can get from either or at (if you can find them cause they came out last season)

I’m actually trying to figure out what sneakers the model is wearing cause that works really well.

Anyway, they still got a few sizes left IF YOUR LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. And believe me, this is something different.

Converse Chucks x Purcells: Do A Little Something Together

Another great sneaker related post from the bloggers at I never EVER heard of Purcells put apparently its because I have no class lol. Apparently the original news came from a High Snobriety network site called Selectism.

Now I did a search on the site for them and I couldn’t find them at all and it says that they should start shipping worldwide and at a store near you. The post on Selectism was made on May 2nd so they have to be for this season. They show the low tops and the high tops as well.

Very grown and sexy. Adults ONLY lol.

Oh and guess what I found while browsing Selectism other interesting stuff on Kayne West (boy that Kayne West really trying to be the first black billionaire rapper).

You guys might also want to check out this right here too. Some real casual Perrys along with some Vans and another sneaker I don’t recognize lol For the full effect of what is called Court Legends, click here.

Sneakers and Shoes… BRINGING HEAT lol
