If you want something a bit different to the usual Dr Martens Joylyn boots that will definitely get friends, and even strangers, complimenting them and asking where you got such a design from take a look at the Dr Martens Joylyn Little Flowers Boots pictured below.
Dr Martens Joylyn are beautiful boots. With the colder, wetter weather coming along they are very popular right now. And rightfully so. They offer excellent protection from the elements while still remaining stylish, practical and hard-wearing. Even though the design, with only two eyelets, is quite simple the boots just look so appealing. They have all the traits of the traditional low-cut Dr Martens boot but have a softer, less aggressive appearance.
The flower print is something rather special. The finish is amazing and almost looks like it’s been hand painted. Of course, it is a print design but the quality is superb, as you would expect from Dr Martens. All pairs of Dr Martens Joylyn Desert Boots, whether purple, tan (14761220), black, or tan floral like this pair, share the same quality features. This includes the hard-wearing sole and full upper to sole outer stitching that goes around the full circumference of the shoe to ensure a hard-wearing, long-lasting boot. However, what these boots are most known for is their comfort level.
They have “Soft Wair” built-in which makes them very comfortable. Soft Wair is a system exclusive to DMS that offers extra odour prevention, added foot breathability, and twin cushioning system located at the heel and front foot in the form of a gel which helps to essentially “suck up” some of the stress from the areas of the feet more prone to feel discomfort from all day wear.
These boots are not cheap, none of the Joylyn Desert Boots are, but surprisingly this floral design won’t set you back much more money than a normal pair of DM Joylyn that are only one colour. They are around the same price. The heel height is a little under 1 inch and the uppers are made of full grain leather. Be aware of the sizing as some people state they come rather big. Limited sizes are available of the floral design. All in all, really nice boots that are memorable and quite distinctive.
The stylish and weather ready Converse All Star Axel Herringbone offer something a little different with their Herringbone tweed fabric ankle and tongue tip.They are quite similar in appearance to the Converse CT Street Mid Tops from certain angles, but the Herringbone have that extra bit of flair and uniqueness about them due to the upper design combining the leather and tweed trim. Herringbone Mid-Tops are stylish, well padded, easy to clean, and great quality as usual by Converse.
The uppers are mostly leather and the sole is rubber. They have an All Star badge logo located on the inner side of the upper and also feature the Converse branding on the tongue and heel. They are available here in either black or brown (144719C Axel Braun) which are both pictured.
For adults sizes the price is between £35 – £60 depending on the size. Most adult sizes (UK 6 – UK 12) are available with half sizes to choose from dependant on colour way. They are great shoes for the upcoming cooler seasons but be aware of the trademark two holes on the lower inside upper, which are great for offering some foot breathability, but will let in water if the weather is particularly bad.
It’s almost that time again where everyone scrambles to try to snag a pair of the latest release of Adidas Yeezy Boost 350, this time in Pirate Black. The official release date is Saturday 22nd August 2015. They are being released in stores world-wide, but I think that you are most probably interested in what UK high street store you are going to have to sleep outside in order to stand a chance of wrestling a pair away from a fellow shopper once the doors open in the morning. See below for location details, and lower down for sellers now taking pre-orders.
Well, here is a quick list of UK stores that will have pairs for sale. Hanon in Aberdeen city centre, Sneakersnstuff in London, Dover Street Market, London, Adidas Store London, (Oxford Street), Harvey Nichols, Birmingham, Adidas Originals Store Liverpool, Harvey Nichols, Manchester (New Cathedral St), Flannels, Liverpool, Endclothing Newcastle, (4 High Bridge), Selfridges on Oxford Sreet, London, and Triads Ltd, Albert Road, Middlesbrough. There are a few more outlets scattered across the London area. I believe Size? on Neal Street, London will also be part of the official release.
So what’s special about this pair of Yeezy Boost 350? Well, not much. Other than the fact that this time they are being released in a Black colour way (Pirate Black), will be available in half sizes, and have even more hype surrounding them than the previous release, there’s no difference at all. In all fairness the Adidas Yeezy 350 do look much better than Kanye West’s previous Frankenstein looking creations, and actually look quite nice on the feet. They have a full Primeknit sock design upper and an Adidas Boost (Internal Boost Foam) sole which does make them extremely comfortable to wear.
So what happens if you can’t manage to buy a pair from a retail store? A lot of people will end up disappointed because they will sell out extremely fast on the high street. So it looks like most of you may have to enter the bidding wars on good old eBay, where you can bet your bottom dollar you are going to have to pay a crazy price to own a pair. However, all is not lost. With them being released in so many stores worldwide there should be a lot of pairs to go round, with a lot of those pairs ending up for sale online so your chances of getting a pair will be higher. Be aware for fakes though.
A great pair of super stylish Adidas Neo Weneo (F38073) boots with an integrated wedge heel. An excellent colour choice of either Brown or Tan is available, which suits the Autumn season now fast approaching. And with them also having the added bonus of being faux fur-lined they will be nice and warm as the weather turns cooler. Adidas Neo Weneo have a super wedge, but they are also a super high boot to cater for the heel. They still cover the whole ankle. And the ankle padding is very thick.
Neo Weneo are great boots that can be made to go with so many different clothing styles, casual, hip, or otherwise. Neo Weneo have been made quite famous thanks to the mainstream media due to a few celebrities being spotted wearing a pair. The uppers are a mix of thin suede and leather for this particular model.
With these boots being so cheap at around £25 you get plenty of shoe for the price. Good quality by Adidas too. Be aware of the sizing as these boots can feel much smaller than usual. A half or full size bigger than what you usually wear is recommended. Limited sizes are available. Be quick, don’t miss out on a good bargain.
There are some superb Nike Air Max 90 Essential colour ways doing the rounds at the moment. This pair are quite subtle but edgy with the Jade Green trim. They have a suede and fabric upper rather than a leather one and the colour way is reminiscent to the Emerald and Granite pair which have a mostly leather upper. With Nike Air Max, along with many others, being one of the most replicated pairs of trainers you can buy, it pays to do your research when buying a pair online.
Make sure seller feedback is excellent and only buy from reputable outlets. Thankfully, these Nike Air Max 90 Essential are being sold by Shoes & Style so you can be sure that you are purchasing a genuine pair of Air Max. Other than this colour way another pair that really stand out are the Wolf Grey and Hyper Jade colour way (Pictured below). Both pairs are around the same price of between £70 – £100+. It would be nice to find some pairs being sold in a clearance sale but that doesn’t happen often with Air Max 90.
One thing to be aware of with Air Max 90 Essential is the sizing. While most people will be perfectly happy there is a small majority who will either say there are too big, or too small. It’s crazy because on a lot of customer review charts when asked about the size, the people who say they were too big and the people who say too small are usually quite even in numbers. Just something to be aware of if you’ve never owned a pair of Air Max 90 before. These trainers are available in sizes starting from a UK 6 up to a UK 14. Half sizes are available.
