Currently Coveting: Nike Internationalist PRM in Glacier Ice

January 29, 2014

Those rubbery playground essentials of my youth had become futuristic atrocities as we neared the new millennium, with silly details like air pumps that purportedly made you jump like basketball stars. So while I've always been a die-hard for the classics, like Chucks and New Balance 574s, and considered most new sneakers to be unfit for my consumption, there is just something about the recent streetwear movement in which sleek fashionistas in tailored attire and a $5,000 handbag on their arm don wildly colorful and athletic footwear. Perhaps it's the accessibility or perhaps it's the comfort factor now that I'm trekking all around this urban jungle until my feet ache, but I'm on the bandwagon in a major way.

With such finickiness around athletic footwear - absolutely love my Nike Dunk Sky His and the old-school chic Air Pegasus 83, but detest the Free versions with a passion - when I see a pair I actually like, the desire to possess it becomes insatiable. This occurred most recently on a trip to & Other Stories when I spied the beauties above. Knowing that they do not carry my shoe size (get with the program, H&M brands - do you know how much money you'd make off my shoe purchases if only you gave me the chance?!), I found them elsewhere and am fighting the urge not to press the order button for something I do not necessarily need nor can I realistically afford. But there's something in my shoe-loving soul that just cannot let these go. It could be the bright color combination that is so well-suited for dragging oneself out of the grey depths of winter and into the lightness of spring, or maybe it's that in both hue and name, they're a dead-ringer for my all-time favorite ice cream flavor.

Whatever the reason, they are topping my coveted list right now. One can only hope that there could be reason enough to make them mine...
