Sk8er Boi

If there's a pair of shoes I am wanting, it has got to be skater shoes. Of the perverted, luxe incarnation levels. You know, Céline, Givenchy, that sort. Sick, I know. But hey, they ain't called by The Times, The Trainers of Spring 2013 for nothin'.

The good news is, I am logical about this. Do I need a pair? No, not really. Not even.

They've been sitting on my wishlist for about a year now and as logic dictates, I haven't done anything about it. I think I will sit out this trend, although I am pretty sure these have the makings of a closet classic. 

Plus. They look sooo cooool.

In the hierarchy of skater shoes, these snakeskin ones from Céline are the ultimate. The Holy Grail.

But these lace ones from Givenchy ain't too shabby either.

Of course, the originals from Vans beats these busters by a mile and at least $500 when it comes to value for money.

Then, there's the middle road. You want these skater sneakers in leather but you don't want to pay top dollar? Here's Woman by Common Projects to the rescue. More reasonably priced at about $300. Not cheap, but not prohibitively expensive either.

 I kind of can already see myself wearing a pair. O.M.G.

Wouldn't you want to be in her shoes too?
