girl's sneakers from Seed
... thy daughter's sneakers. Or shalt thou? At least kids' sneakers are still sold at reasonable prices. Adult slip-on sneakers are going for crazy amounts at Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin, and Saint Laurent just to name a few. You can't do much with HKD 5,000 if you are interested in one of those designers, but yet I am completely stressing myself out with my unrelenting demented desire for a pair of pink sparkly Givenchy pretend Vans.
Argument against: don't be daft and get some Vans for less than one tenth of the price. Like these ones HERE.
Argument for: the designer styles are lined in leather and will be less likely to cause blisters in hot weather. Not buying that? Okay, they are really pretty!!! And now that fashion sneakers are the hottest footwear around, why not indulge in a bit of retail economy boosting to ensure designers keep making them forever?
THESE are similar to the ones I love (and at Bluefly they are actually on sale).
What do you think?
