Sunday surprise.

I have never been a major Adi head until I saw these…

Adidas Montreal wheat suede, caramel suede as I like to refer to it as, makes me want to lick them every time I look at them. Coming from the adidas archive range where Adidas have bought back numerous of the ‘vintage’ styles. This find seriously was a strict case of they found me! (Hence the name of our blog)

Anyone who has worked in retail knows how boring Sundays can be but to my surprise these beauties brightened it right up. I had been after them for age but only had my size online I don’t know why I didn’t just order them off there weeks ago maybe a few other trainer purchase got there first. But to find these sitting in the stockroom literally had me bouncing off the walls, hugging them with delight grinning from ear to ear.

Adidas I will never overlook you again, Malmo’s are next on my purchase list. Check the rest of the Adidas archive collection here

Handsome? Yes you are!

So everybody has more or less heard of black milk clothing (if you haven't GO!) anyway I was trawling 
 through eBay a few weeks ago a brand called We are handsome, similar to Blackmilk we are handsome's main focus is swimwear but these worn as body's teamed with high waisted anything would be a key item in any ladies s/s 12 wardrobe, perfect for festivals to!

 The prints on their garments are totally mind blowing!

Check them out at:

School Daze

Through my teenage years my mom would never fork out money for trainers she just didn’t get it and still doesn’t.  This is probably the main reason why I’m so obsessed with sneakers!

The Nike air max deluxe is one of the key trainers that remind me of starting secondary school. But as you have probably guessed these beauties never got to touch my feet. Priced at what I can remember around the £100 mark my mom would never buy me these, the closet I going to get was going in to JD just so I could touch them, I wasn’t even sure if they came in my size! The other place I got to see them was on the school bus the popular girl who went to the school next door had them, I would gaze over at them for the entire bus journey.

I’ve always looked at peoples trainers before I checked out there faces even if it’s just a quick side eye, I can honestly say these caught my eye from day one! The fully exposed air bubble and that pattern I fell in love!

That was all in the year 2000 coming forward 12 years!!! As of a few days ago I finally have these beasts on my feet. Being 12 years old I am very cautious about wearing them, all kinds of disastrous things could happen air bubble popping, sole falling off. I just can’t bear to think about it! I am just so pleased to have my dream childhood sneaker that finally found me! I thank you Size? Dead stock.
