The Material Boy #180
Neil Barrett Fall Winter 2008/2009 Baseball And Basketball Boots
Online shopping alert! There is a new online site for all fashionistas! Launched by www.revolveclothing.com, this new site, www.forwardforward.com features exciting labels that is rare and not easily available anywhere else. Cults brands such as Alex and Chloe, Glided Age, Rag And Bone, Jeremy Scott or even big names like Neil Barret and Missioni.:-) Another avenue to let out all your shopping urges.
What caught my eye on this site are the super cool Neil Barrett hi-tops. Named as Neil Barrett 'Black Padded Baseball Boots' for the patent/quilted black design and 'Navy Basketball Boots' for the navy, suede/patent leather version, these converse style trainers looked like distant relatives to Lanvin's sneakers. What I feel is most distinctive is the look is less bulky on the soles than Lanvin. Lanvin's sneakers are very nice, but they bulk up your feet when you wear them. These Neil Barrett ones are more streamlined which I prefer. The use of patent leather and quilted design adds a modern and contemporary touch. Very cool. I love them.
Prices are steep but if you have the dough, these are nice shoes to pamper yourself in:-)
1) Black Patent Baseball Boots in Black: US$578
