In 1987 the Nike Air Max was born (in good company– I’m an ’87 baby myself). This beautiful sneaker, padded with a comfy cushion of air is one of my favorite types of shoes. It’s a relaxed style that also gives a good inch of a boost to all of those who like a little extra height. There has been quite a bit of hype in the sneaker community this past week about 3/26/15. Well here it is. Happy Air […]
I have loved surrealism before I even knew what it was. Cloudy messages and hidden meanings give me such a thrill. Being straight forward in the art world can be such a snooze-fest. I enjoy being left to my own devices, plopped in the middle of a confusing painting that I must figure out and enjoy based off clues and my own feelings and agendas. The rush of surrealism comes in the form of a brain unchained. This 20th-century avant-garde […]
Behold–the greatest Nike Gym Ballet Wrap ever twisted about my torso! Thanks for helping me pick a new Nike piece to add to my wardrobe the other day. I couldn’t be happier with our collaborative shopping effort. We should do that more often! I’m already dreaming up ways to wear this thing in a zillion different ways. Like those sneakers? Remember when I did the photography for the drop of the Liberty x Nike Bourton Pack for NTC in Chicago? THIS IS […]
Happy New Year, Folks! I know it’s trite to claim that last year was the best one yet… but last year was the best one yet. I got freakin’ engaged, traveled all over the US, and picked up a few great kicks along the way. Thanks for tagging along with me through fortheloveofnike. Y’all rock. Cheers to 2015, my friends!
When I was a kid, I thought growing up was the worst thing that could happen. I dreaded becoming an adult. Little did I know that being a “big person” is actually awesome. You can eat all the candy you want and buy yourself Christmas presents (all year ’round). A pair of Sweet Classic Highs and Winter Roshe Runs and a very Merry Christmas to me!
The Holiday Season is always better with a visit to an art museum, especially when showing the ‘rents around Pittsburgh for the first time. The Carnegie Museum of Art has a great permanent collection and rotating exhibits. It’s no wonder since it’s been around since 1895. In fact, it was among the first of America’s modern art museums– created by Andrew Carnegie to be a tribute to the “Old Masters of tomorrow.”
I just got back from a quick trip tp Syracuse, New York. Not too much to report. It’s a small-feeling town surrounded by a good bit of nature. A few fall leaves were still hanging around, but for the most part, winter has already taken its first breath. I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find something interesting about the little city to share with y’all…but to no avail. Just take a look at the “little known facts” page on […]
The city of Nashville and what is considered to be “music country” is located in the north central region of Tennessee, nestled into the Cumberland River. It has a sweet skyline and the downtown area is easy to get around on foot. If you travel down Broadway towards the river, you’ll hear live country music pouring out of every bar and saloon. Contrary to belief, even if you’re not a country fan, Nashville is still a fun city. Trust me, I have […]
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Lots of skulls and neon orange seem very appropriate today, dontcha think? I’m ready for an overdose of candy and lots of wacky costumes. (My top is from Ann Taylor, the skirt from LOFT, the sneakers are Sweet Classic Highs, and my hair ribbons are actually shoe laces.)
I know, I know, it’s incredibly cliché to start off a post with a definition, but bare with me. sneakerhead /ˈsnēkərˌhed/ (noun) 1. A person who is inexplicably obsessed with sneakers, rarely seen wearing any other shoe form, willing to spend far too much money on footwear, and way too eager to talk about it. 2. A person with a sneaker for a head. So maybe I made that up, but either way you look at it, I guess I am a real […]
