Shoe connoisseurs are still hawking them on eBay for up to $2,000… yeah, pretty crazy. So, clearly there is a demand for these high-end sneakers.
Louboutin Spiked-Hi Top Sneaker, $835
With producers like Pharrell and Swizz Beatz tweeting about and wearing the new men’s Louboutin shoes, Christian has had alot of great publicity. I’m just curious about the overall sales of his studded shoes so far (if anyone has an idea, feel free to comment). And I really want to get a look at his complete collection because so far it seems to be never-ending, lol.
3 of Jimmy Choo’s high-top sneakers
Jimmy Choo will be adding his fancy kicks to his pre-fall 2010 collection. There will be 8 styles, 5 high tops and 3 low tops. The materials for Choo’s sneakers will range from suede to patent leather to snakeskin. And the price? $470 to $630. That’s a few hundred lower than his luxury sneaker counterparts, so the price is definitely more economy conscious (in terms of luxury footwear)… But I guess the question is: will the lower price mean he’ll sell more? maybe even sell-out faster? Or will his lower price tag just leave him with lower profit margins? Only time will tell. The Jimmy Choo sneaker collection will be available to purchase online in May.
What do you guys think about the rise in men’s designer sneakers? Which ones are your favorite? Are you willing to buy them or will you stick to your $50 Chuck Taylors, $100 Supras, and $150 Jordans?
There’s the well-known studded high-tops, brogues, and slippers. Then there’s the others that aren’t for sale quite yet, like the colorful, red and blue, and animal textured sneakers. Can’t wait to see what’s next…

more masculine than the average man.
Throughout the fall/winter, BBC king Pharrell Williams has been seen sporting Christian Louboutin studded shoes instead of his usual comfy Vans. Known for their high-end stilettos with the signature red bottoms, often worn by the likes of Victoria Beckham and Rihanna, the folks at Louboutin are really upping the ante on men’s shoes. Kanye once proclaimed himself Louis Vuitton Don… is Pharrell the new Louboutin Don? Nah, that sounds too corny. Check out Pharrell Williams rocking not one, not two, but three different kicks from Christian Louboutin’s SS2010 shoe collection for men:

Tom shoes are truly inspirational, the company gives away a pair of shoes for every pair that is purchased. Not for every other pair, not for every 500 pair of shoes, but for EVERY pair of shoes that is bought. That’s extraordinarily commendable, and that makes you feel guilt free when shopping. Other companies have had similar missions; for every shirt you buy they’ll give 25% percent to a charity- which is nice, but nothing compares to directly giving a person in need the full amount or worth of the product… read more about TOMS mission here. Oh and TOMS basically stands for “Shoes for Tomorrow” or “Tomorrow’s Shoes”.
here’s a few of my favorite for men:
Chocolate Corduroy Stitchout, $58
Burlap Woven, $48
And they have very cool packaging:
If you have some extra cash and you’re in need of a new pair of casual shoes, then order a pair of TOMS.
Feels like forever since we’ve done a swank or dank… let’s try to make this a weekly thing. Okay, so this weeks item….

SWANK or DANK
(for the urban gent newbies, “swank” is good and “dank” is bad)
