Sneakers for the girl who loves her heels! -Puma-
While some of us have grown tired of the sneaker wedge trend, there's still a market for them and there's no slowing down. Puma is at it again with the newest release of the Sky Wedge Chambray. It features a soft leather and chambray upper, dual strap details with hook & loop closures at the collar, all on a grippy leather outsole. Priced at $100, the Puma Sky Wedge Chambray is just as dope as the higher priced brands....maybe even sexier!

For every action, there's a reaction. Lance Armstorng chose to lie and deceive, Nike chose to drop him like a bad habit. As of January 2012, it had been fifteen years since Nike made the commitment to Lance as an athlete and an advocate. Nike released statement stating that they've made the decision to stop producing new LiveStrong product after its Holiday 2013 line. However, they will continue to support and fund the Livestrong foundation directly.

Sunday, May 19th was the launch of SNKRBST national sneaker show. Many were in attendance and if the rest of the events are anything like what I witnessed, great things are to come! Hosted by radio personality Angela Yee, the event took place at Stage 48 in NYC with vendors, performers Joe Budden and legendary rappers Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap. Female sneaker fiends were scarce but those that were there represented!

I'm a sucker for a camo print! And Vans has this Female Sneaker Fiend, fiending for this Duck Camo pair. The upper is a waxed canvas covered with a unique camo print and a white outsole, accentuated by a pair of laces that one may find in a pair of outdoor/rugged boots. This Vans Authentic pair is expected to drop at the end of July.

The Reebok Pump Omni Lite has been around for some time. Dropping some dope colorways influenced by the likes of the NFL's 49ers, artist Basquiat and the USA Summer Olympic team, to name a few. This go round, Reebok dropped a treat just in time to bring in the summer! The bonus, these babies are in GS sizes.
With these new colorways targeted at the lil sneaker fiend boys and girls, I had our grade school size Female Sneaker Fiend wearers in mind. In addition to the bold colors, each pair is made with soft full grain leather ranging in sizes 3.5 to 7, which translates to about sz. 5 to 8.5 in women.
Adult sizes and colorways are available. BUT I'm all for #teamlilfeet #gradeschoolgang right now! lol
