Currently Coveting: Nike Blazer High Vintage White Sneakers

March 28, 2014

Perhaps it was the fashionable French girl they belonged to or Garance's lovely styling and classic monochromatic photo, but something made me want a pair for myself. Bad. I'm not sure exactly when white sneakers transitioned from '80s Working Girl - the film, not the profession - to acceptably chic footwear, but I owe it to French women. They take simple, normcore styles and turn them into highly covetable fashion, just by slipping them on.

The bright, colorful versions of this style are abundant, but these 1970s throwbacks were apparently re-released a few years ago, making finding this classic white leather pair like a needle in a haystack. If I strike out, I admit to really liking this updated urban-style version, appropriately in Berlin grey. But I'm not giving up hope just yet of finding my little piece of the French je ne sais quoi...
