This week, FN’s guest sneaker columnist Stacey Griffith — senior master instructor at SoulCycle — finally tries on a pair of Buscemi high tops she’s had her eye on. Get her thoughts on the luxe shoes:
“These are possibly a handbag made for your feet. Not lying! Imagine your favorite handbag with all the trimmings: the gold lock with the key, the leather handles, the gold loop detail, the gold key for the lock wrapped up tight in a cute leather pouch that you can leave on or off depending on your mood. I remember ‘I Spying’ this shoe at Maxfield’s in Los Angeles and telling my girlfriend, ‘These red ones would look so good on you!’ I was also thinking I would get them in black but they didn’t have my size.
Six months later they dropped the men’s cream color, and I am now over the top with happiness. There is not one thing about this shoe you won’t love. It’s gorgeous; it’s dressy; it’s casual; it’s beyond a statement. If fashion sneakers had one chance to make a statement, this would be a shoe in to the upper echelon of boutique chic sneak of the week!”
