When Nike announced a limited-edition collaboration with Opening Ceremony
, everybody flipped. Hype Beast
and High Snobriety
pounced on the liberty print graphics; Mischa Barton and Chloe Sevigny scrambled for samples; our entire fashion department almost cried.
But now comes the real question:
The shoes look cool, but can you actually wear them?
Our fashion market editor, Michelle, gave them a test drive, and the results are, so far, so hot. The shoe has a little more of a platform than usual, so you won't feel totally flatfooted, and the print's colors are muted enough that you can mash them up with another pattern.
As Michelle was lacing up the shoes, Luke walked by and asked, "Hey, are those sneakers unisex?"
Ummm... we'll get back to him on that one.
