You know that book, The Secret? Aren’t you supposed to think about the thing you want all the time and then somehow the universe provides you with it? Well on Friday I tweeted that I think it’s about time that I got a pair of Buscemis and on Saturday they sat all bright and white and regal-looking with my shoe family. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the exchange of money took place and that’s usually how you get the majority of material items in this world but let’s just say it’s The Secret. Ok, now I’ve thrown enough shade on The Secret (I don’t even know why, I haven’t even read it) let’s just get to the point that I am now the proud owner of a cocaine white pair of 100mm Buscemi Sneakers.
They’re glorious to look at aren’t they? The beautiful Italian leather paired with the heavy golden clasps and locks inspired by the immortal Hermes Birkin. The shoes even have a “handle” at the back of the shoe reminiscent of the handles on the Birkin, the only differences between the shoes and bag being that the shoes are a lot easier to find, they’re usually worn by rappers and not carried by a Kardashian and they’re a lot cheaper than the arm candy lusted after by the majority of women. They’re Birkins for your feet.
So I have a strange collection of sneakers and I decided to choose cocaína because I don’t have a pair of white sneakers as I usually find them very gym class and K-Swiss. I’m going to have to be one of those sneaker people who tend lovingly to their sneakers cleaning them with a toothbrush 4 times a week and singing them to sleep to “relax the leather”. You’ll find me leaping like a gazelle over puddles, just generally tip-toeing everywhere and starting arguments with people who step on them. The white also ignites your outfit, Buscemis in general are an outfit elevator, a casual outfit can be set off with these *replaces ‘cut it off’ from ‘F*ck Up Some Commas’ with ‘set it off’*. I’m super obsessed with them, as I should be, the only downside is that it can be a task to single-handedly keep the components of the clasp together as the other hand fiddles with the lock mechanism but it’s a small price to pay for one of the hottest pairs of trainers out right now.
