New Year’s Resolution

I’ve finally found a New Year’s Resolution that will work for me. I own nothing that is really normal. Bold. Colorful. Graphic Print. Neon. Studded. Tight. Somehow it works and somehow I catch myself saying “What in the world are you doing?” I am going to buy normal clothing and shoes.PSSST! *eye roll*

However, before New Year’s a boy can always add two more things to his Christmas List right? I think I’ll take these two things over the Jeffrey Campbell’s Siren. However, walking around with a Lucite sole would be pretty bad ass. I think so anyways.

So over the summer, maybe it was early fall, I purchased a pair of studded platforms by a brand Y.R.U. They make all different styles of shoes,easily found on one of my other favorite retailers online Solestruck. What I particularly like is the comfort level that each shoe has. The loafers come in many different styles which is rare for a man to find. They have Cheetah print, moustaches, skull and bones, and a lot more. I bet you are wondering what would make me attracted to a loafer. Are you ready? Can you handle it? Nobody would even notice it except I would get lucky and have the kid who’s Hooked on Phonics trying to sound it out.

So I love Adidas Originals collaborations. I think it’s a great way to marry a designer with another designer and create amazing results. Respect Me from Missy Elliott was the first in such a relationship. They’ve known had other designers create collections such as Stella McCartney, Jeremy Scott and Opening Ceremony to name a few. Jeremy Scott, I feel though has been the longest collaboration. Angel Wing Sneakers. Bowling Sneakers. License Plates(Beverly Hills and now Miami) and surely who can forget the Teddy Bears!!!

A boy can add to his Christmas list just a bit more because New Year’s will be here soon enough. My resolution is to get a few normal shoes in my life. Things that effortlessly match with everything. Anybody up for that task? It’ll be fun!! We’ll see how long this reinvention idea lasts.

Any fun resolution ideas?
