Alexander McQueen For Puma SS07

Hey people, my exams are over and I'm back! OK, now most days, I am all about being practical, walking fast and keeping my feet warm (during winter). And even though I love ogling at gorgeous, trendy shoes, the only footwear I have actually been wearing a lot are my tatty, 5 year old, Addidas-lookalike Sketcher sneakers. Said Sketchers are about to break apart any day now and I have started to take notice of the sneakers available around me.

To me, Nike sporty sneakers are my favourite for sports and I don't really like Nike's non-sporty sneakers. I had bad experience with Puma sneakers many years ago and I just couldn't find my ideal pair of Addidas yet. Converse is a bit too flimsy to keep my feet warm during winter and Sketchers are just too sugary for me nowadays.

Luckily on a shopping trip, my mum noticed this cool pair of sneakers and told me to try them on (mums seem to spot pretty things that we don't.) Tada... I finally found a new pair of sneakers! I love how they're sneakers with cool details and a bit of edge, (although I won't be wearing them in the rain until the novelty wears off!) I was slightly surprised because this pair is by Alexander McQueen for Puma and when the AMQ for Puma line first came out a season or two ago, I thought they were ugly.

OK, so ugly isn't the right word. It's just that the last few collections seemed a bit alien-ish. They had funny toe bits (as shown in the picture), which I'm sure is supposed to be avant-garde and all, but it just looked weird to me. Plus I didn't like the colours. (All the pictures in this post is from the SS07 collection.)

I don't like the toe bit here but leather sneakers are way cool and useful.

For those who understand this, McQueen's inspiration quoted from the site: 'For Spring/Summer 2007, the study of anatomy continues through the exploration of body ornamentation with references to the Masai tribe culture.'

This pair is quite pretty, and not as 'designed'-looking as the others too.

You didn't by any chance mean to write "Voila" instead of "wala," darlings, did you? I'm all about breaking down the superiority complex of the French, especially in fashion, but it is their language...

Yeah, those toe piedes are just weird, but the leather on those sneakers is amazing.

Hooray for the end of exams and you being back! I love your new acquisition as well as the pink pair. Too bad Puma 11's are too small for my feet. My Ked red polka dot skimmers have replaced my casual sneakers. I adore them. Thanks for a great blog!

I think its about time that exercise shoes are becoming streamlined and actually fun to wear. Maybe it might inspire me to start running again....

Even the ones without the odd toe look a bit odd to me, they look like they have too much space in the toe area, they kind of look like they're too long for where your foot would normally come to in shoes. They're probably different on though.

that toe thing is pretty strange,the last tow and the first one are pretty cute though:)

Hurray for being back to posting!

Do you know the price range of the shoes?

And what is the price for the first shoe?

Thanks :)

Oh my... you got me hooked on these shoes! I definately have to check these out, wherever they sell them! I've always wanted a pair of shoes that are stylish, casual, and comfortable without the usual "running shoe" look. I think I've found it!

Did you end up buying a pair?

I dont like sneaker shoes, I mainly go for open canvas shoes, flats etc but the first one is strangely alluring...

by the way, welcome back.

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask anonymous why you are talking about voila and wala? Just curious...

Have you tried the Stella McCartney line for Adidas? There are 1 or 2 that are cute and sporty.

Thanks people, I'm happy to be back.

Anon 6:10pm -Thanks. I corrected it.

Anon 2:09am -Sorry! I'm not sure about the price range. They're obviously more expensive than ordinary Pumas. I'm guessing around US$200?

Katy -Yup, I bought the first pair.

Sherie -I've looked at the Stella McCartney line. They're cute but they weren't really street-casual or fit for sports, so I'm not sure where one would wear them to.

Oops, sorry for not reading carefully! Those are lovely! How much did you pay for them and where did you buy them at, if you don't mind me asking?

The site doesn't really give any details as to where they sell it at all!

The toe bit IS very odd! I really have always liked Pumas when I need to wear sneakers...if not, I'll stick to ballet flats, sandals, and those cute Keds slip-ons I sometimes wear.
