Pop stars and their Nikes
I just spotted these 1970s Bob Marley Nikes (above) on Street Etiquette’s Tumblr. I love the old school running shoe shape and the colour combination (I call these Matthew Williamson colours as he always does pink/jade/turquoise together very well) , probably because they reminded me a bit of my own custom Nike IDs.
Nike launched its custom service in London in 2006 and I was invited to try it out. As you can see, I never got around to wearing them… they were just a bit too jazzy to pull off. Like a lot of things, I imagine they’d look great once they’re a bit kicked about and dirtied but in order to get to that stage, they have to be worn. After I’d made mine I also thought they were similar to a Daisy De Villeneuve artwork…
On a vague pop-stars-and-their-Nikes note, I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on these Nike Night Track disco sneakers – as worn by Michael Jackson…

I have just been looking at indoor soccer boots, not because I play the sport, but because I so love the wild colour combinations I see. Those Bob Marleys are especially enticing . . .
