Pumped Up Kicks

HBC Jack Purcell Converse Sneakers

What It Is: I find this such an odd / interesting collaboration. Converse has teamed up with Jack Purcell, a Canadian Badminton player, to create a limited edition pair of shoes representing the world’s oldest store: The Bay. The brand’s signature stripes are in full effect on these fuzzy yet classic sneaks, but these kicks are available in an extremely limited run – they just went on sale yesterday so hopefully you’ll still be able to snap up a pair if you’re so inclined. They are sadly, cut for men’s feet – but you can still ogle your man’s lower half to live vicariously right?

Who It’s For: Sneaker freaks. Grown-up skater boys. Hipster Bay babes.

What It Costs: $120 (yup, splurge). The site I found them on has a pretty blah international shipping rate ($50) but you have the option to use a rerouting service and take advantage of potentially lower rates.

Where It’s At: Do some searching – I found ’em on a site called Canvas Malibu.

Bonus entry into yesterday’s breakfast bonanza! Feel free to pin any of those five items + today’s shoes for up to SIX bonus entries. Just leave links back to your pins in the comments below.

Also a quick publishing change for you all to note. Effective immediately I’ll be pushing pause on weekend posts, with the exception of when the 10th (and 10 for $10) or the 1st of the month comes up on a weekend. It’s likely the holiday season will still see weekend posts, due to the insanely high volume of coverage I’m asked to take on in November / December. The reason? There are many pro (i.e. paid) blogs I read out there, authored by multiple authors, that take Saturdays & Sundays ‘off’. Where my blog is written by a single, unpaid person, I could really use the extra time that goes toward those posts and put it toward researching and better planning my posting schedule. That’s not to say you’ll never see a weekend post again, but I’m giving myself the flexibility to not stick to such a rigid, seven days a week schedule!
