Paris Shoes

Those of you that know me knew this post was coming. There are a lot of great shoe shops in Paris but apparently we were there to see other, older things but i did manage to make it to a few shops.I ended up getting this pair of Pro Lawn Adidas. This is part of the European graffiti artist collection end to end. My shoes were done by UK artist SKORE. Black and Brown, lasered piece on the side and the same design on the footbed and as you can see, the laces are also done.
Nike Paris was something else. They have a Nike ID studio on the bottom floor. After almost getting a pair of Air Max 360s from the kite series i opted for a sweet Nike Paris Cap.
G! loved Nike Paris so much she insisted we have a cup of coffee at the cafe next door so she could bask in its glory.
We also hit Adidas in Paris, according to a sign at the store, it is the largest Adidas store in the world. I somehow stumbled across Opium without even trying. They had an amazing collection of OG Jordans. We were also able to find Colette which was an amazing store. It is mainly a clothing boutique that skew "street" but they had a nice selection of hard to find shoes including the new European version of the talaria from Nike.

Was it an opium den or just some opium? The den would be alot cooler if it was next to the nike store! I would get high and go look at shoes if I did opium that is. For the record I do not. Or at least I do not remembere ever doing it. Does opium make you forget things?
