Ladies, its our time of year once again. Love is in the air, and we’re days away from the most romantic day of the year. Some gals prefer flowers and candy on February 14th. Not I. If you want to woo me, put something nice on my feet. This edition of “She’s Got Sole” is dedicated to the Valentine’s Day releases for 2011. Each of the top sneaker brands has a shoe inspired by the big day. What better way to say “I love you” than with another addition to the closet?
Sneaker powerhouse Nike blessed the ladies with an entire lineup. Its pretty much the top selling ladies styles all dolled up for V-Day. Included with the Nike releases are the Court Force Hi, Air Max 95, and Dunk. The Court Force Hi duo features a heart on the tongue of each shoe in either a powder blue or red colorway. The 95 features its classic color gradient fading from white to deep red with a red accent in the heel air pocket. Finally, the Dunk (nicknamed the ‘Amor’) is inspired by the corny love tattoos some decorate their body with mixed with doodles we’ve all covered notebooks with at one time or another. Hearts. Cupids. The whole nine.
Vans and Reebok also made their own contributions to the holiday. The Vans ‘Big Heart’ slip-ons are a simple yet cutesy brand classic. The pattern for this shoe is best described by the shoe nickname. It’s covered in big hearts. The Reebok ‘San Valentin’ Freestyle is the most creative release of the bunch. The bright red sneaker is riddled with yellow seeds and a chocolate dipped toe. Remind you of anything?
Lastly, Converse hit us with an entire collection. The PRODUCT(RED)RED LOVE collection is the Chuck Taylor 5 ways. The standout print of the bunch is the black Chuck Hi with white hearts and red eyelets. Ca-yute! The remaining 4 sneakers are the customizable Chuck Hi and Low. Reading ‘I <3 _______’ you’re able to fill in the space with the name of your beau.
All of these sneakers are available on the brands’ online stores or in your local sneaker spots.
