I’m a mean shopping machine. Why is it that I have no problem buying shoes ALL THE TIME. I mean all the time. I can always somehow manage to convince myself that I need them. Whether the toe is slightly more almond shaped, or the shade of grey is different, it feels like I can’t believe that I’ve lived without each pair for so long. Now any excuse is a good excuse right? So when I decided that I wanted to embrace all facets of grunge this summer this included of course the weird canvas sneaker. If you’ve lived through the 90’s you know exactly what I’m referring to. It’s that super chunky gum sole sneaker that feels like the Palladium (not restricted to) style shoe with a canvas upper. Sure this guy is big and loud and completely the opposite of cute and dainty but who’s to stop me from wearing it with my favorite summer dress. It was only a matter of time before she made a comeback, and to be honest I don’t think most folks have even begun to see the beauty in it.. but I saw it.. I’m on it.. and you should be too.
My new purchase: These amazing 90’s canvas sneakers with leaf print. I just can’t get over their weird perfection, they make me so giddy. But since these are gone (mine) below you’ll find some other suggestions to get the weird summer shoe ball rolling.
Prada has done an excellent job at convincing me that the flatform is more than just okay.. it’s awesome. What better way to get your fix than to go vintage.. and to go canvas and straw? Find these HERE.
These cuties are irresistible for several reasons.. the cutout detail, the awkward square toe and the whiteness of them. Find these babies HERE.
These bad boys rule cause well, THEY SAY NATURAL FEELING on them. Come on what more could you possibly want in a shoe. Find these HERE.
Lastly, I love the cutout sneaker/shoe vibe anyday.. and these have it all in the perfect little package: Find them HERE.
