Wow! It looks like we’re almost going from one shopping post to another – from delayed Christmas straight to my birthday! Winter is the gift season for me, and I can’t really complain about it… :P
This time, it was all about shoes, and not just ordinary shoes….
I’ve already shared my love for biker/cowboy boots before, so this won’t really come as a surprise to you. However, I’m still proud to announce that my collection now has two new wonderful pieces ^^
They are all from Spanish brand New Rock. For what I’ve seen in their website, this brand specializes in making gothic/biker shoes and clothing. They all come in beautiful black boxes with silver lids, and their slogan says: “Above all be original” – which is certainly a sentence I could use as a subtitle for this blog! (LOL)
The first pair is almost plain black and really sober: no fancy details, no studs, no clasps… they’re just boots! Serious biker boots for serious bikers (:P). They have something that makes me think of a Harley Davidson just by looking at them. I think it must be the colour combination on that label…
The other pair is beige and it’s my most cowboy-looking pair of boots to date! The tips are even bent upwards! (LOL) They have a couple of really badass buckles on both sides that I just adore. Plus, their unusual colour opens the door to a brand new world of outfit possibilities…
These are not biker boots, obviously, but a glamorous pair of trainers. I used to have a beautiful pair of deep red Nike trainers with golden details (I still have it, but they are completely worn out now) that I’ve been trying to replace for ages. They had a very special quality: they looked casual, but not too sporty, so you could wear them outside PE class and actually make them part of an outfit. I still don’t know if this pair will be the definitive substitute, but it’s as close as I’ve got yet, and they have a bit of a skater/gangsta (but still elegant) look I just love :D
With this and a little bit of light reading, I guess I’m ready for long nights on the road… ;)
