I proudly admit to being a total sneakerhead – if I was a guy I’d be a hypebeast. I love sneakers; I’ve worn them for years with ready-to-wear well before the current trend for all things sportswear-inspired and hip-hop styled that has been all over the runways for the last couple of seasons or so.
I admit to having eclectic taste when it comes to sneaker brands though; I’m not one for following the crowd and throwing on a pair of New Balance M670SNR in the latest colour-way just because everyone else is doing it.
Instead I spend way too much money on snakeskin beauties from Pierre Hardy or a mirror leather pair from Hogan. So you can imagine my excitement when I got an email from Dior touting its amazingly glamorous, bling-bling Dior Fusion sneakers. Yes, these fabulous shoes are sporty, bedazzled with sequins and a little ribbon bow, and basically just brilliant. I’m in love.
Dior says these sneakers signify a woman who is “elegant and contemporary, an urbanite who makes the city her own with dash and daring”. I can only hope they’ll do the same for me once I get my hands on a pair.
Die-die must buy these Dior Fusion sneakers … The only problem is which colour? I know, I’ll just buy two!
Dior Fusion sneakers will cost $1,600 and be available from July 2014 from the Dior boutiques at Ngee Ann City #01-07/08; The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands #B1-26/27/28; and ION Orchard #01-22 & 02-13. For more information about Dior, go to www.dior.com.
