Camo Sneaks

I've had my eye on a pair of camouflage sneakers for sometime now. Actually, ever since Caroline Brasch instagrammed these camoflage Valentino sneakers to be exact.


After a quick double tap I turned to google to sadly find out they retailed at a very not chill $795. Almost $800 for a pair of men's sneakers -- you've got to be kidding, right? Nope. The folks at Valentino are not kidding whatsoever, and like the sick minded individual that I am I tried to justify the price tag to my friend. She was not the least bit impressed and so, I let the idea of them marinate. Perhaps I could get them at discount, or perhaps an extra $800 would suddenly fall into my lap. Whatever it was, I was not letting the idea of them go just yet. As I began to scope out my options, I actually found quite a few viable alternatives, but none compared to the dopeness to follow. None, I tell ya. Not even Valentino's.


Do you agree? Do ya? Do ya? As soon as I saw these bad boys on Hypebeast, the hunt for them was on. Nowhere to be found on the internet, I began calling stores like a mad (wo)man. Joking aside, I actually think I called every New Balance in the US before speaking to someone at their corporate offices. I'm a psycho, I know (it's the aries in me), but when I want something, I reaaallly want it. Luckily I was transferred to a fella named Patrick who really helped a sista out. The sneaks were just released on Saturday and are available for men and women in a variety of colors on their online store. I got the ones above which are mens because honestly the women's ones are straight up uh-glay. You can click here to find the New Balance sneakers and here or here for the Valentino's.
Now, mailman, where the hell you at?
