Make It Official

Can we make Valentine's Day the kind of holiday where we don't have to go to work the next day? And while we're at it, if your city wins the Superbowl, Monday should be an automatic holiday. Let's state our case to the officials. Which reminds me, it's a good time to visit our official friends at Foot Locker on 34th Street. Because Valentine's Day is tomorrow and I'm sick and tired of seeing all those roses/candy/chocolates get bought up just for one day and then what? Gone for the rest of the year. Unlike what? Shoes! Now that I'm a convert, thanks to Footlocker's fashion week supply (soon to be blogged), I've got sneaks on my mind.

Ok, it goes against all I believe in to recommend holiday-themed attire, but to fight this impulse in others is an utter waste of time. I know this as I am descended from a long line of holiday sweatshirt adorners. For those of you in love with sufferers of this tragic malady, go to Lady Foot Locker on 34th for:

  • Nike Air Max 90, Vandal, and Dunk Lo, all available in shades of red and (gasp!) pink.
  • Converse Chuck Taylor All Star in pink. These I actually recommend as you can conveniently pair them up with black and work them into your Go-Go's retro look.
  • Adidas Superstars, be-speckled with RED AND PINK HEARTS. If these don't cure your beloved, she's a lost cause.
Of course if you're buying for your man, there will be no pink hearts involved (except the ones you draw on his card). He'll prefer something from Foot Locker next door, like:
  • Fila Helmsman, classy patent leather hi. It's a running shoe or a casual kick.
  • Nike Zoom LeBron V. Have we talked about my big LeBron crush? Don't tell Andre Leon!
  • K-Swiss Ariake, it sounds high tech, it is high tech, I just want it cause it's K-Swiss!
Happy freaking Valentine's Days, all you well-shod lovers.
