I work in Manchester city centre, I often find myself sucked into the consumer plug hole on my lunch breaks. As you can imagine it’s too easy to buy nick-naks so I try leave my purse in the office….
The one time I’m glad I took it with me! Check out these babies fresh from TK Maxx!
I’m not usually one for Etnies or Vans, but I’m a sucka for patterns and you can’t lie, these do look fresh to death! Will go nicely with a few garms on one of my ‘aternative days’…. and I cant argue with £14.99!
Whether it’s animal print, aztec, stripes or polka dots, I love patterns. I definitely have a thing for blog colour, but when you team that with some kind or patterned print, I think it makes for a perfect outfit!
Paying respect to the founder of the company, James Van Doren, this series of shoes, by the looks of things, will be made up of a Skate-Hi, an Era and a Slip-On. I’m not sure whether this is it though, there may be more additions to the pack, but the suede on canvas mix adds a little something extra. Out of the three we’ve been teased with, the Era is definitely my favourite but I’m guessing these won’t drop in small sizes (keeping my fingers crossed that they do though!)
Next up is the Pendleton x Vans x Nibwaakaawin for 2012 All Nations Skate Jam collaboration. All for a good cause, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this collab will go towards Nibwaakaawin’s efforts working towards motivating Native American youth through skateboarding. These will be exclusively available at the Gathering of Nations Powwow and the 2012 All Nations Skate Jam in Albuquerque. The purple based Sk8-Hi and Old Skool are my pick of the bunch but I’m not a massive fan of the slip-on as a shoe in general.
So yesterday I showed you the Nike WMNS Skinny Hi Dunk “Aztec” pack. Well, last night I went into aztec-overload after I came across 2 other pairs of aztec Dunks, a pair of Air Max 1s and a pair of Blazers! Check them out!
Nike Dunk High ‘Aztec’ – Oxen Brown/Lion/Black
Nike Blazer Mid ‘Aztec’
‘Oxen Brown’ seems to be reigning supreme in this Aztec pack! No word on where we can cop the Blazers yet, but the Dunks have just landed at Size?
Nike Air Max 1 Aztec – Sand/Iron Stone/White
Nike Dunk High ‘Aztec’ – Sand/Blue/Iron Grey
Although I think this colourway works best as a Dunk (that blue Swoosh is sick!), the leather on both pairs of these beasts looks soooo buttery. Both pairs can also be found at Size?
I’ve definitely said/written ‘aztec’ waaay too many times in the last few weeks!
The aztec print is still going strong over at Nike. This time the tribal vibes have taken over hi-top Dunks! Available in two colourways, the “Aztec” pack features rich, dark tones perfect for Autumn. Check out the pics below!
I love that although these are WMNS kicks, the colours are really dark and earthy. The “Marakesh” orange and “Imperial Purple” makes them quite feminine!
Keep it Big Eyes for info on where and when you can get these!
The Vans “Nordic” print Chukka boot is an interesting change to all the Aztec and Native American prints I’ve been seeing lately.
The “Nordic” Chukka boots are part of the Vans California Holiday 2011 collection and are a combination of leather, suede and rubber. Available in two soft, warm colourways, these beauties should land in time for Winter!
