How Far Would You Go for Shoes?

Adidas Originals by Originals JS Wings sneakers in black

In my case, quite far, as long as I like them!

About a month back some time around wee hours in the morning, I was going through, the sister site to, which focuses mainly on fashion and the hottest trends around and I stumbled across these marvelous pair of Adidas sneakers. Turn out, it was designed collaboratively by Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals by Originals (ObyO) line. And he has designed other shoes for Adidas before this as well such as this quirky three-tongue shoe:

But I really got my eyes on the winged pair. I'd be so fly with them, literally!

The winged pair comes in 5 designs, which are in black, silver, gold, white and rainbow mash-up. Kanye West has donned the white one earlier this year and I got my eyes on the silver or gold ones.

Well, before I got it, I went nuts about it. The picture of the gold pair was my desktop wallpaper and I kept telling everyone how fabulous they are. Even Zafirah has to listen to me about it during our revision session in the UM main library. I really went nuts.

Well, it's the law of attraction, as Oprah said. When you want something so bad, you exert a pulling force toward it.

However, we were too little, too late - the gold ones had already been snapped up and only the black one is available. Other colors are not available here in Malaysia. When we dropped by the Edison Chen-owned Juice store the other day, the black one didn't look too bad either. It looked superb. Regally sitting there on the display. Waiting for me to touch it.

I touched it, feel it, tried on it, fell in love with it and eventually bought it. Happy.

No surprise, I got heads turning and eyes bulging out when I wore it around KLCC and Bukit Bintang. Even an Indonesian cleaner in KLCC loudly told her friends when I passed by, "Uuu! Kasutnya ada sayap!" I returned them a wide satisfactory grin :D

This one retails at RM679 and only available in Juice KL, No. 46 & 46-1 Jalan Telawi 5, Bangsar Baru. Miss Hana Amira, you may want to cut my legs (again).

In Starhill Gallery with my wings on Halloween. This is officially my costume of the year.

nicely done sweetheart!

btw, I can always count on you when it comes to fashion. Hmmmph.. I've been in the library too long and unable to even pronounce the word fashion. Damn UNI.. i blame them for my pimples, sweat pants and messy hair days.

I'll catch up on the catwalk when we meet.. and it's going to be so soon!!
