white authentics with leather laces

i apologize for the lack of posts lately.  my internet at work has been a bit messed up.  i need to start auto-posting the night before so i can keep up.  i’ve got a lot of good stuff planned for the next couple of weeks.

with spring right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about new kicks.  my favorite spring/summer shoe is either the vans slip-on or the authentic (above).  i’ve always gone with black, gray or navy when buying either shoe, but this spring i’m going to branch out and get white authentics.

white shoes are a tricky thing to pull off.  you don’t want to look too hip hop or like you’re trying too hard to look cool.  the break in period usually consists off some ridicule from your friends, wife or girlfriend.  fear not.  give them some character by adding leather laces to the equation.  the white laces don’t do the shoes any favors.  i stole this idea from ryan at [you have broken the internet].  here are a shot of his authentics:

    in a quandry over these. love authentics, I just don’t love them on me — a bit too masculine. wish there was a low profile version a la chuck taylor.

    might i suggest red authentics. i think they look amazing on girls. the red slip-ons work too.

    • J’adore the red authentics. Good idea, as it breaks up the color (unlike the white). Perhaps that’s my issue…
