N.HOOLYWOOD and Generic Surplus came together to create a range of collaborative seasonal footwear. Even though I’m not a fan of these brands, partly I never heard of it, but I came across their collection through some news and I was in love with the collection. Their new collection of Spring/Summer 2013 footwear is just amazing!
I am a fan of footwear and I don’t think I have enough, or for that matter, I don’t think I’ll ever have enough. These shoes above just screams “get me!”. I love shoes with this simple design, nothing extraordinary, just a simple shoe for everyday life. I especially love the mixture of colours as well.
“Featuring thick cushioned insoles and waxed cotton laces, the footwear comes in either two-tone cow suede renditions of navy/black, charcoal/red, and yellow/grey alongside tonal linen editions in colorways of khaki and charcoal. Each pair comes complete with white rubber foxing, dual-branded insoles and subtle N.HOOLYWOOD branding along the tongue.” Quoted from hypebeast.com
However, as I was reading through the article, it is only selling now in Japan, retailing for ¥23,100 JPY (approximately $232 USD) each. Woah! That is definitely out of budget, for me I suppose. I understand designer shoes are expensive and I would definitely pay that price to get one if I had the money, so if you are spending on a budget for Spring, why not try an alternative.
Personally I love the brand Vans! It has the similiar design and it’s comfortable to wear and durable as well. Price range about $45-60, therefore I think it’s affordable for mostly everyone. So if you are in love with the shoes above but spending on a budget, why not try my alternative. What do you guys think?
