STYLE: ALL THE OTHER KIDS WITH THE PUMPED-UP KICKS

It’s not news that a pair or two or three or 50 of fresh sneakers is an essential part of the contemporary wardrobe of the working creative-professional (WCP). These can run the gamut of old-school classic Adidas Gazelles or New Balance 574 running shoes ( that — God forbid — you’d actually go running in) to luxxy $700 Rick Owens / Givenchy / Gucci / Dior leather kicks to $50 checkerboard Van’s Slip-Ons to, as pictured here, Nike cross-training kicks (that — God forbid — you’d actually go cross-training in). These Nikes belong to colleague at an agency we work for. The pair are beautifully designed, and, aside from the red swoosh, understated at a glance. On closer scrutiny, there are few details that make these shoes sing: The red pull tabs, beige suede accents, and rounded laces.

Street Art … Homage to Classic Nike Air Jordan Sneakers, New York

This fresh wheatie street art piece by UnCuttArt (the artist a.k.a., “UnCasso”) went up on a wall on Ludlow Street last night. It’s inspired by Nike’s classic Air Jordan high-top basketball sneaker and rendered across color bars in UnCasso’s typical illustration style. The artist has in recent months been bombing much of lower Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn with images of Steve Jobs and a young Michael Jackson.
