ARKYN in four styles

How would you wear this Adidas Originals sneaker?

I visited Justin in Florida recently and took my new Adidas Originals ARKYN sneakers I purchased at MAJOR DC a few months ago. They’ve been sadly sitting in the box for far too long, so I took it upon myself to break them out with four different styles.

Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase

Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy, I did not line up for days.

The Powerphase is deemed the most “accessible Yeezy” to date. Adidas Originals worked with Kanye West to modernize a classic silhouette. While I never attempted to purchase the Powerphases upon it’s release date (December 9, 2017), I recently noticed a tweet from @AdidasAlerts that SneakersNstuff restocked the sneaker.

Since I had been eyeing the colorway after positive reviews on social media, I decided to attempt to purchase the product for both me and my fiance. I almost caught a double W, but sadly received a refund notice for Justin’s footwear.

Season of Her

Jump-woman.

Nike’s Air Jordan brand released its first ever women collection of sneakers dubbed the “Season of Her.” The Air Jordan 1 silhouette came in 10 brightly hued colorways. The Jumpman sneaker comes built with premium materials. Catered to the streets yet remaining fashion forward, the Season of Her collection can be mixed and matched to compliment both day and night styles.

Watch my unboxing below and let me know how you feel about this sneaker!

Asics Cloud Pop-Up

Dreamland in Manhattan.

While wandering around a busy Soho street, my friend and I stumbled into the Asics Cloud Pop-Up shop. Not only can you try on the latest Gel Kenun.

The various colorways hang against the walls, as well as a DJ booth set up in the corner. The biggest appeal, however, are the colorful clouds hanging from the ceiling. Once you delve deeper into the room, you find an entire wall covered with clouds lighting up in similar patterns to that of lightning bolts flashing through the sky.

Behind the cloud mural, a dark room hosts photographed cloud walls and a city-covered floor. Once laying in the bean bag sofa, you peer up into a giant circular mirror that makes you feel like you’re on top of a New York building.

Visit the pop-up through the rest of the month at 63 Greene Street.

Work it, gurl

No sear sucker, but the summer vibes are present.

Summer heat is here.

In an effort to ditch the denim skinny jeans, I styled this Young Hungry Free dress with my Careaux x Puma sneakers. The variety of blue hues on the footwear contrasted with the black and white stripes. The appearance looks like sear sucker material, but alas it is a cotton polyester blend. The off-the-shoulder, straight cut on the dress makes the outfit less pajama-like and more fashion forward. For that city chic appearance, I added a baseball cap for a lighter shade on top.

Additionally, No Kings Collective painted this mural earlier this month. You can find the 30,000 sq ft artwork in the 14th St corridor of DC. For more information about the mural, read this Washingtonian article.

Multi-colored racers

On sale at a Nike Factory Store.

My sister, Jenna, loves rainbow sneakers. One of her favorite shoes are the multi-color Nike Roshe One flyknits.

While sifting through the clearance items at Nike Factory Store at Pike & Rose (Rockville), we found this gem: a Flyknit Racer in the rainbow/multi-colored shade.

Originally retailing for $150, the sneaker rang up for $85. I wouldn’t call this a steal, but certainly a deal for someone who loves rainbow footwear and refuses to pay full price.
