Apparel Watch...Supra Vaider Purple Patent Shoe
These shoes first caught my eye while I was sitting in one of my journalism classes about a month ago when one of my classmates strolled in wearing them. I should've known he'd wear some shoes like these because the guy has a style that's mad fresh. It was ironic because not long before that I had just been explaining to some of my fellow writers/editors at the IDS how I really want a pair of bold, purple sneakers. I failed to ask him where he bought the shoes, but I went and checked them out myself.
I found the shoes this past weekend at Zumiez in the College Mall here in Bloomington. Priced at $94.95, the shoes appear to be well worth it, as I thought they'd be closer to $150. One of the employees told me the shoes had been flying off the racks and they only had a limited amount of sizes left. When asked if they'd ever go on sale, she left me with little hope. Nevertheless, you can find them on numerous online shoe sites for the same price with all of the sizes available. The only downside is shipping and handling. The shoe details are below.
Features of this shoe include a high top with vulcanized sole, extra heel protection molded into comfortable high memory polyurethane insole, SupraFoam® midsole providing entire foot impact resistance, optimal shoe flex and board feel, ankle support and PU leather lining. New metal sliding tongue logo.
