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

Embracing Instagram

Shoeture UK

With Instagram (the popular photo-sharing app) becoming available for Android phone users (finally), I figured I’d see what the hype was about.

Twitter has obviously been a great way to communicate with you all, and some of you reading this arrived here directly via that means, but Instagram, even in 2 days has already  proven to be a different kind of interactive experience. And a welcome one at that.

Having our ‘followers’ comment on our pictures, gives us a greater sense of what you actually feel which is a lot more of a detailed feedback than a ‘retweet’. If you like something, at least now you can tell us AND start discussion with other people who may like it. I can feel the vibes :)

Expect behind the scenes shots of our videos, photo shoots, day-to-day adventures, and general freshness.

Got Instagram? Follow Shoeture¬†and we’ll be sure to follow back*

1 love, Folks
