Holiday Gift Guide: Footwear For Hipsters

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

gift guide

If you frequently use the term “post-modern”, carry a “satchel” (men included), & live in Williamsburg, then chances are you’re a hipster. Not that you’d ever admit to being a hipster but if the shoe fits, wear it (LITERALLY).

With our new Williamsburg location it’s only fitting that our ‘Holiday Gift Guide’ features the ever-so cliche hipsters. Leave your tattered Converse & Toms behind because there is a whole new gang of urban chic taking over – driving loafers,  penny loafers, ankle boots, and desert boots.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Do NOT mention the word ‘hipster’ when gift giving to your ‘hipster’ friend…they don’t take well to labels.

Let us start by wishing you a very happy Cyber Monday (Don’t forget to use coupon code ‘CM20′  for 25% off – excludes UGGs,Pajar,Sorel)!

Now, onto the blogging. In the fashion blogging industry, one shoe stands apart… the Jeffrey Campbell Lita — a fashion cult classic. Since the Lita’s rise to footwear stardom many brands have joined in on the platform high heel boot trend. One of these lookalike brands is Chelsea Crew who calls their “original creation” the Timber High Heel Bootie, boasting a hidden platform and lace up detailing. Similar to the Lita in design, the Timber has a 4 1/2″ heel and 1 1/2″ platform while the Lita has a 5″ wooden heel and 2 1/4″ hidden platform. Another difference is the price, which Timber gets our vote for; $79.99 as opposed to the Lita’s steep $145 price tag.

Which fits your style and budget best?

Men’s Style: Chris Brown Rocks Palladium

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Palladium was founded in 1920 in the fledgling aviation industry to make tires.  Their expertise was so advanced that soon the majority of Europe’s aircraft were using Palladium tires. After World War I, the demand for tires died down, thus Palladium decided to open a plant in Pont De Cheruy, France to start producing footwear. Soon, the legendary Pampa boot was born from their infamous tires.

Today, the time-tested design are as relevant as ever, combining over 60 years of authenticity with modern manufacturing. The Palladium Pampa Tacti boots are here and ready to help you dance like Chris Brown. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of stretch but we can dream can’t we? Chris Brown and his entourage recently hit the stage wearing a spread of Palladium styles with Brown himself wearing the Palladium Pampa Tacti boots. Bown is looking fffresh in the Palladium Pampa Tacti boots, so why not treat yourself?! Oh and by the by, the dancers and entourage cost extra.

Men’s Style: Become a Member of the UGGerati

Monday, November 14th, 2011


Let’s start by examining the new face of the male UGGerati. He’s won three Super Bowls and is married to a supermodel, they say this could be the real test of Tom Brady manhood and star appeal. Why? Because Tom is promoting UGG Australia? Or is because they haven’t recognised he’s a true metrosexual?

The UGG Australia Classic Short Boot been described as a frumpy, furry foot sack but only, I feel, by men who would like to own a pair but don’t have the courage to step outside their comfort zones and buy a pair. These boots are the classic winter throw-on for the walking the dog in the park, winter, slouch look of big cable knits, snoods, scarfs and gloves.

So come on guys… sport those UGG Classic Short Boots and become a member of the ever-growing Uggerati!
