Winter Kicks

Tricia Lewis, our Fashion Herald blogger, is out on maternity leave. Following is a post from her co-worker Martin who is graciously filling in as guest blogger.

In anticipation of winter, I like the look of these Nike ACGs (All Condition Gear)…waterproof, breathable, great traction on NYC’s slushy winter streets and super stylish. I’m partial to the neon orange; a splash of color even at the sidewalk level livens up any outfit. These are pricey though and will set you back $180 a pair. Well worth it though as ACG performance is legendary.

My other pick for stylish kicks are these Nike Dunks (currently on sale for $70); an old school classic with a modern feel. I especially like the use of black snakeskin texturing on these shoes.

And finally, cold weather is no excuse not to stay active and indoor basketball may be the perfect thing, especially wearing these Nike Hyperdunks. Light and supportive, they are perfect for lighting up the court. Forget about the Knicks playing terribly and get out there and work on your own jumpshot.
