Trainers Inspired

Filling Pieces Rainbow Capsule Collection  This style is part of Filling Pieces’ Rainbow womens capsule collection, completely made from premium pastel blue tanned nubuck, giving the model a sophisticated feminine look. Combined with a contrasting off-white Filling Pieces Ripple sole. Stampd x Puma Desert Storm R698 Stampd, the west coast ‘avantstreet’ lifestyle brand,  teams up with Puma for R698 upgrade.

Pony x DKNY  Pony New York meets Donna Karan New York to create a new M-100 high tops.  The original M-100 was first released in 1988 so it seems only right that two iconic New York brands should team up on the upgrade. Even though it still feels a little bit bulky what with it being a basketball shoe, it is a thing of beauty. Pony x DKNY is made of calf leather with mesh details and leather laces.

The InstaPump Fury – The Return of a Classic

Well not really but I have to say that Reebok Classic’s iconic InstaPump Fury has never looked just so cool. It is the collaboration child of #ReebokClassicxSandro  producing an an inaugural capsule collection for SS15, that ‘centers on Reebok Classic’s iconic InstaPump Fury, fusing the distinct but complementary design attitudes of the brands to create two limited edition styles for both men and women.’ The launch took place today at Sandro’s Marylebone store with a private party. When I saw the trainers I thought they looked just as cool as the picture. I have to say they come in small because they are slip-ons so even though the website says to buy a size smaller I had to go for a size up. I am such a big fan of trainers but to see an old classic such as the InstaPump come back is truly exciting. The iconic trainer comes in two classic colours white with blue soles and black with flashes or colour. A pair will set you back £199 and it is available …
