Adidas JS Instinct


I've seen Lil Wayne in one before and although I'm never a fan of his music, I do adore what he put on his feet. 

I love the bright in-your-face yellow, along with its larger-than-life label on the tongue. But what I really love about this sneaker is - surprise - its back part. I just think they look sporty, young, fun, upbeat and very Adidas-ish from that angle. 

The sneakers are in soft leather and the inner sole and cushioning are oh-so-comfy. I could fall asleep standing while wearing them, let me tell 'ya. 

It comes in white too and for the Fall/Winter '12 collection, there's a version of JS Instinct in cocktail of colors and prints which I'm totally in love with. Can't wait to get my hands on them soon. 

Just when you thought Mr Jeremy Scott couldn't do better, he proved you otherwise. I just love the black-and-yellow combo on the sneakers. 

Suddenly, Wiz Khalifa's 'Black and Yellow' playing in my head....

I got this one from Adidas store in Johor Premium Outlet, which explains why I bought something from past season. It was sold approximately 200 bucks cheaper than normal retail price. Thanks to sales associate Azhar for the great service.

Fun Stuff: Footwear

Recently I was in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with my hommie Ayi and it was amazing. The people are nice, the city was awesome and the view was ____  (Insert adjective here. I'm running out of adjectives to describe).

I won't bore you with the details of our trip but I'd share with you a particular outfit I wore there.

Taken on the same day, in the morning I decided to pair my favorite black long sleeve knitted top from Armani Exchange and skinny blue jeans from Galliano (it was on 40% off!) with my Burberry Prorsum gladiators. However, later on the day I (literally) kicked off the gladiators for my Louis Vuitton loafers for a walk along the promenade since it was so much more comfortable.

So which footwear looks better with the outfit?    


So...which one is better?

Back to Black: Alexander McQueen for Puma Black Label

It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of high-top sneakers. But what surprises me is the fact that I haven't bought anything from Puma in the longest time. Although some of their sneakers do have some sick, awesome design, I just felt they were just not for me.

Until I saw this pair (and the 'Sale' sign next to it).

I just love the triple shades of blue combo on them along with the softness of the suede and calf leather. When I first tried it on, I thought they looked funny because of the hiking boot-style shoe laces but after a while, it started to grow on me. 

Why not try something a tad different for a change, I told myself.

The fact that it was on 40% off gained itself extra brownie points for me to take it home. Oh, did I mention that I also got a free Puma Black Label lush leather passport cover for this purchase? Sweet.

Puma Black Label is the higher end line of the sport house, much like that of Adidas Originals by Originals. As stated on its website, the Black Label comprises collaboration with 'high fashion innovator designers' namely Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen and Miharayasuhiro. 

This high top Alexander McQueen for Puma Black Label sneakers are available in Isetan Wisma Atria, Singapore. When there's a 'McQueen' label tagged to it, be prepared to fork out extra dosh for a pair.
