White Supremacy: The Truth

Yeah, I know I picked a controversial title for a blog post, but I want the general public to know the truth. Some of you will be well aware of the facts outlined in this post, but for the rest of you, allow me to enlighten.

White footwear rocks.

With summer descending upon us it’s become more and more obvious to me that you NEED to have a pair of white-on-white footwear in your collection so as to make the desired impact this season. So I bought two.

First up was the glorified plimsole known as Vans Authentic.

Outside of boat shoes and actual flip-flops (‘thongs’ to our Australian readers), there are few shoes that say, “it’s sunny and I know it” like a pair of plain white Vans. I obviously had to get some metal on them as soon as possible and opted for Gunmetal Shoeture Tangs.

As expected, they get a load of attention with every wear. (For the record, at time of writing it’s raining so they are BOXED out of harms way currently).

My second supreme white kicks were a totally different prospect. I mentioned in a previous blog that coming from where I’m from, Reebok Classics have long been a staple of the locals, so in homage to the manor, I plumped for the Exofit Hi-tops.

I don’t have to sell ‘em to you, but if you like your trainers clean, you do a lot worse than these goodies. Leather, light and sporting a groovy gumsole, I sense these kicks will have seen a lot of memorable times over the next few months.

“But what about maintenance?!” I hear you cry.

Well fortunately my homegirl, Lem0n Cake, over at Big Eyes Lil Soles has put together a guide to combat general sneaker-distress and help you resurrect previously given-up-on kicks. Enjoy!

Til next time, Gang

While waiting patiently for my next personal consignment of accessories to arrive in the post, I’ve been ‘getting my metal on’ with the gold and gunmetal ‘Hooks’.

Gunmetal vs Gold!

Despite the ‘super showbiz’ nature of the gold, i must admit the gunmetal Hooks have managed to work with a larger number of the trainers in my collection and are in someway understated while still yelling, “Hey, I’m down HERE!” Time will tell weather they remain my all out favourite Shoeture accessory, but I’m just as intrigued by the Brushed Steel Hooks, I’ll admit. Already practicing my Robocop walk for the first time they get bus’.

Are you a Golden Child or a Gunmetal Slinger? Which do you prefer and why? ^_^

Hmmm.. what's it gonna be?

H2 Woah!

Despite my current affection for gunmetal I did recently discover a company that ONLY deals with nugget coloured items.


H2 Gold Solutions are a Gold Plating company specialising in producing 24ct Gold Plated styling and performance parts for all makes and models of cars, bikes and most things automotive. Esablished in 2007 after spotting a niche in the car modifying scene for bigger, brighter and parts with that extra ‘bling’ H2 quickly found itself in the pages of national car magazines and being recognised by Editors of major magazines as being the latest ‘hot’ property.

For truly one off pieces that should make you stand out, WILL draw attention be sure to check out H2 Gold Solutions. They can also do all sorts of personal and gift items as well. Just check out the gold ipod!

Let’s be honest, if you’re prepared to adorn your trainers with jewelry, a gold-plated ipod is not going to be outside your comfort zone, ha.

Last night I attended a fashion show in Kensington which was cool and everything, but the DJ couldn’t mix a bag of sweets :o/


…the one time I visited the bathroom, THIS is the track the bathroom attendant was broadcasting!

No exaggeration, we were in there SINGING, ha. To anyone too young to know the song, you are pardoned, but anyone familiar will already have taken it back for a reload!

Until next time, Guys, it’s good bye from Efe the bathroom attendant, and it’s goodbye from me.
