Kemi’S Urban Style Review
When it comes to fashion, exclusive sneakers are always one of the most talked about must-haves in the industry, especially when it comes to urban streetwear. We are familiar with the influx of throwback kicks inspired by the basketball shoes of the late 80’s era, which are constantly making comebacks. This month I am showcasing a designer kicks run down for the sneaker lovers…
Rapper Pusha T recently took to Instagram to show off his new Christian Louboutin Python sneakers in a multi colourway. He is a huge fan of the unique editions - already owning the sneaker in several colorways. Unfortunately they're currently unavailable at the Louboutin official website due to high demand, so you know they are hot!
Will.i.am’s eclectic quirky fashion sense is so adorable! He was recently seen at LAX Airport in a $650 Vivienne Westwood jacket with a uniquely attached vest, a Christopher Kane galaxy t-shirt and Christian Louboutin Rollerboat Spike Flat Sneakers, which resemble the Vans-like slip on style.
Many of you already know that Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy’s are highly popular amongst celebrities right now. Last month the Yeezy’s were released in stores across the US and several other countries around the world. Buyers even camped outside for stores to open before their release. At present they are like gold dust, reaching astonishing pre-release prices on eBay – which is the best place to scope out some limited editions, but be prepared to spend some serious cash.
Being Kanye's girlfriend does have its perks when it comes to expert fashion advice. Kim Kardashian recently tweeted a photo of the couple wearing matching Air Yeezy's. Her caption read 'His & Hers! #Swag’. Kanye also rocked the same Yeezy’s in white at annual 2012 BET Awards.
Young Jeezy was recently spotted performing at the Radio One Festival in Miami wearing the infamous Air Yeezy 2 sneakers, teamed up with the very popular Trapstar Snapbacks which are available for £30. He daringly completed his ensemble with a pair of zebra print shorts! It SO works.
If you looking to diversify your sneaker rotation then the new Yves Saint Laurent Malibu joints may be exactly what you’re looking for. These amazing stop-and-admire kicks boast luxurious python skin with patent durable leather highlights. The raspberry-coloured pair features shades of brown and is accompanied by black waxed laces which all sit proudly on top of a striking white midsole. Sounds as good as food! Remember when Fat Joe licked his limited editions Jordan’s on MTV Cribs? That is how good they are! The YSL Malibu’s would make a plain white tee with chinos look beyond fresh.
Former Danity Kane member-turned-solo-singer Dawn Richards turned her swag up by bringing a little edginess to a Vibe Vixen photo shoot recently. Dawn’s striking wedged sneakers by Marc Jacobs look great with a bright white lipstick and Alexander McQueen cut out leggings from Forever 21. Fabulous!
