Heart palpitations and panic attacks.

Well its seriously been a while, I would say I've been busy but I haven't just lazy. Enjoying my long summer!
What better way to bring the blog back, than with what i am about to grace your eyes with.

A WOMEN'S Jordan release, how else can I describe these but FLY AS HELL! A black Jordan always makes me go weak at the knees and these are no different and with that gold pop I was practically on the floor!

Air Jordan Vii Womens
Black/Metallic Gold
I'm so thankful to the Jordan brand releasing these for the ladies only! When I first saw them my eyes literally came out of there sockets, that was it for the rest of the day these were my only thought process. Do I wait until pay day (Friday) be sensible and get them then or survive off baked beans and cop as soon as I get back to my house. As fellow sneaker heads know, sneaker heads are never 'sensible' when it comes to the habit, addiction, sneakers! Now I'm broke and happy, hence the title of this blog, heart palpations and panic attacks are not what I'm about, having them all day thinking these would never be mine (hopefully i am not alone on this one) wasn't fun.

Nike are well and truly looking after the ladies at the moment with numerous recent releases being aimed at women, and I for one am not complaining.

After the drop of those delightful dynamic blue max ones last week, this weeks sees the release of a mint/white/dark navy colour way.

I really like the freshness of this colour way and very well think it could become a classic, I personally appreciate how the colour on the toe grip has been highlighted through out the, little details like this can really pull a shoe together. Also a great shoe for the summer but can easily take you through to those dreary autumn months (yes I'm talking about autumn already!)

Available to buy from Size?, starting from a size 4! Don't miss out go grab yours now!

Superga x HOH

So this collaboration has been out for a while now, unfortunately I was to late on the first drop to get first pickings. After some late night tweetings I came across a tweet from the man himself, Henry Holland letting us know the Superga website has been re-stocked.

Now that I've got the choice I don't know if I should grab a pair or not. I'm not one for these platform sneakers that are about at the moment which a lot of this collaboration does consist of. But there are some cute polka dot original Surperga pumps in pastel colours (perfect for summer) that have slightly caught my eye.

At £60 a pop, it's not an easy decision to make, tweet us @theyfound_me and let us know what you think! Head over to the Supegra website to check out the full collection and grab yours NOW!


Date for your diary!

I am currently moving out of my old flat hence the lack of posts recently. Burt keeping checking back over the next 2 weeks as more posts will be coming your way!

Now for me to tell you about the challenge, it's a personal challenge to myself as a self obsessed sneaker addict i rotate my sneaks on a daily basis rarely wearing the same pair in a week. As i am moving my old flat now and don't move into my new one until the middle of July all my belongings have gone into storage, which means i have had to limit myself to 9 pairs of trainers for just under 3 weeks. To some of you this may seem like a lot but I'm getting withdrawal symptoms from freedom of choice already and its only been 3 DAYS!!!

Anyways as i haven't blogged in a while i thought i show you what were my main picks for living out of a suitcase for 3 weeks.

The first round picking the finalists, I had already packed the majority that weren't already in there original boxes. Here's what was was left:

And the winners are!!

Dead stock air max deluxe 

Nike Air Max 90's Hyperfuse

Nike Pre Montreal racer perfect for when the sun comes out!

Nike Air Huarache plus so comfy and yet another one for when the sunshine decides to appear.

Air huarache trainer you can never go wrong with an all black classic.

Nike air trainer ESC just for that colour POP!

It's been a while.

Hey, so it it’s been a while since I’ve embraced you with my consumerist presence. It’s finally time to update you with my newest additions.

An Easter present to me was these canvas Nike Air Max 1’s. Just the perfect colour way for spring/summer. Although I haven’t been able to get much wear out of them at the moment due to the awful weather we’ve been having and the all canvas EVERYTHING doesn’t fare well in the current climate.

Secondly are these Nike Air Max 90’s which are a JD pick up, would you believe! I’ve wanted them for a while with the volt air bubble unit, who’s eye won’t these babies catch? Yet again a great sneak for the summer!

I had been waiting for these bad boys to drop since Christmas. Air Jordan UV 4! I’m beginning to sound like a broken record but yet another great summer shoe, which will also carry you all the way through to autumn. One of my favourite features on this shoe is the little bit of sparkle on the grey toe guard make it’s especially one for the ladies.

And lastly these were an unexpected addition to my collection Nike Air Mariah PR! Sold to me by my friend Sophie B (watch out for her blog post very soon) at a barganious £15 you gotta love her! The bright pink accents, ultra marine swoosh and panelling against the white fabric is just a classic colour way in my eyes, and one which I can’t wait to wear!

So there you go, hope you enjoy. Tweet us your kicks pics on twitter @theyfound_me.
