The Craziest and Weirdest Shoes Around The Web

The Craziest and Weirdest Shoes Around The Web

Long time, no post. I’m having the busiest month ever but 9 days of no blogging and it doesn’t feel right. It haunts me when i remember i haven’t been here and i have so many articles to post, *sigh*. I actually had a dream i was being chased by people asking me why i left them hanging, hahahaha. No it’s not that serious. Anyway, let me share with you guys the craziest and weirdest shoes I’ve seen around  the web. The Gadget Shoes: I would rock these in a beat. I love the stereo inspired sneakers. I don’t know if they are really wired to work, but it would be totally cool if they are. The Pokemon/Game boy wedges are a winner as well, and the metallic music player wedges speak night life. Picture a night out in this silver metallic pair with the music control lights 0n. So yea, these 3 i would wear. The Food Inspired Shoes: Those Nike Burger sneakers will make me drop my fitfam life for a minute…lol! For one, it’s really creative. Now i don’t know if they are really for wearing or just another food art, looks like food to me tho! I like how the vegetable turned out with the woven work on the wedges. And because they are green, they look really good to wear. Yes i will rock them but definitely not the burger sneakers. The Sneaker Leggings: The only thing i could think of is what happens when you have to take off your shoes… I love’em however, makes dressing up really quick… Pants and shoes at once.... read more
His perspective with Creative Director of Senators Footwear Adeyeye Awope.

His perspective with Creative Director of Senators Footwear Adeyeye Awope.

This is officially the first His Perspective post and it features the owner of Made in Nigeria footwear brand “Senators Footwear”, Adeyeye Awope.  I’d be reviewing a pair of slippers I got from the brand for the hubs and our boys, a few months ago. I held out on this post for a few months to have enough time to see how much wear and tear the slippers could withstand.  Here’s my verdict: Quality– I like that the slippers were neatly made and for their price tag, the material is durable and from very frequent wear especially by the hubs, we haven’t had to go to the cobblers for a fix. There was a lift in leather off the sole on my sons pair but that is probably one out of many.  Comfort and fit: All I had to do was provide the universal U.K. Size for the 3 of them and was specific about making Le Hubs pair a wide fit and they fit just right. My younger son’s pair were a bit loose initially because I had picked a size up but now they fit perfectly.  Affordability: The brand promises to bring you affordable luxury. At the time I placed my orders, I got the boys’ pairs at N7,000 each and Le hubs pair for N12,000.  Delivery was prompt and packaging was well thought out. Overall I’d rate the brand 7.5. Over the months, I have seen new designs and there’s something for the female folks too.  Our interview cannot be missed, enjoy below.  E Interview with Yeye Awope JAY: What is style to you??

Shoes Day Tuesday With The Best Of Fringe Shoes

Shoes Day Tuesday With The Best Of Fringe Shoes

This post is inspired by an Instagram post i saw yesterday. It was of the Dolce and Gabanna Spring 2017 Fringe Sandals. I found them really fun and realized they were still trending since 2015 that they became a hit. They are an absolutely fun way to make a statement with your shoes. You can’t but get noticed with a pair like these. Many other brands have had their designs, some keeping it simple, others going wild with it.     Read Also: Want It Wednesday From luxury designers to high street brands, there’s something for everyone.

It’s Monday and We’re Crushing On These Mens’ Shoes.

It’s Monday and We’re Crushing On These Mens’ Shoes.

I know I’ve never really paid attention to men’s shoes since I started this blog and that is mostly because I don’t know so much about the rules that govern styling them. I see the ones I like, I admire and I move on. My hubby is a sneaker head, 4 out of every 5 of his shoes are a pair of sneakers so i’m more inclined to them. But today, I won’t be talking female fashion, I’d be sharing some of the most popular male shoe styles. This should help if you’re looking to get your significant other, dad, boss or brother footwear. See Also: Sneaker Heads Slides, Sandals and Slippers: are mostly casual and can be worn with shorts, slacks and native attire. Did you read: From His Perspective with Moses Ebite Espadrille Slip Ons, Boat Shoes, Sneakers and Driving Shoes (Drivers): These are also mostly casual and are generally not worn with formal outfits like a suit. Brogues, Monkstraps and Oxford Shoes: are formal shoes for black tie events Related: Red Carpet Shoes Boat Shoes, Loafers, Slipper Shoes and Derby Shoes: are Semi Formal and can be worn with suits or corporate outfits but to a less formal setting. See Also: Lagos Fashion and Design Week This is the basic knowledge i have of men’s shoes without having to search google. Nigerian men are quite the fashion forward crew and in the past few years male fashion has evolved from just Tees and Jeans or suits to so many edgy looks that even the female folk need to keep their game tight. Mixing colors, textures, designs and prints,... read more

I’m the biggest advocate for non-boring, non-conformist work shoes. I also believe that shoes should generally be sturdy and of good quality but not necessarily overly expensive. Irony?

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Season Finale – A Birthday and A Fairy Tale.

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Season Finale – A Birthday and A Fairy Tale.

Episode 8 Here Dear diary,  Is this what being in love truly feels like or am I just being overly emotional?.. I can’t even put my thoughts and feelings into writing, I’d be back later… Good night!!! Less than a week to my birthday and none of my friends was back in town. And no, they wouldn’t be making it down in time… I felt so empty and lonely. Ivie had sent me an early birthday present through one of her cousins. As much as I loved my new season Gucci princeton slippers, they could not fill the void I felt knowing i would be spending my birthday alone. A sudden fear gripped me at the thought of being alone forever.. I literally panicked. “Shally too cute, abi what’s that your Whatsapp name?” My mum cut into my thoughts as she joined me on the dining table where I was having dinner. I was having wheat pasta and a side of vegetables with chicken wings. This fitfam feeding wasn’t so bad after all even though I slipped once in a while. My body was taking shape and I was loving every bit of it. “Why not just call me Salewa, Mrs Oni and leave Whatsapp name. How are you Ma?” I replied, offering her a bite from my meal. “A ni o l’eko, o ba je (You have no moral training, you’re ill mannered) she said, taking the chair right beside me. “And I love you too mummy” i said as I blew her a kiss. “Anyway, is it ok to talk? Why am I even asking, I want... read more
