I was contemplating these shoes for last half a year. Yesterday I said f*&k it and arrived home with a pink bag that contained the white grainy leathered Adrianna Sneakers from Acne Studios. I really needed to update my why sneaker game and throw the old ones out. After 3 months of wear they were shapeless, not so comfy and not very representative. Despite the fact that I would take sneakers over heels at any occasion I need them to look the part.
I crossed Nike’s out of the list right away, contemplated Adidas and would have bought Axel Arigato ones if they were not out of stock till re-launch in summer.
I had several tickboxes my new sneaks had to check. White, well made and then there was the shilouette. Most of the Adidas sneakers have a fairly prominent tongue, which when laced up on a foot keeps sliding either left or right. There is nothing that would annoy me more.
If Acne makes the item I am after I do tend to make the splurge and go with it. Just the name says it all: “Aspiring to Create Novel Expressions”. One of the bigger reasons though is the fact that they attempt to make their items as long lasting as possible, with the outlook for environmental responsibility.
Everytime I shop in Acne it’s a great experience. The staff is sweet and super helpful and chatty, which is great because dear I say some luxury stores terrify the fuck out of me.
