Starting this blog has opened many doors for me. I've been able to attend events which I only read about before, I got to meet amazing people with the same passions, and recently, I've been asked to write for a watch brand that I admire. Well, the fruit of that recent racket was a pair of kicks I'm really excited to wear. I'm not really a big fan of Lacoste Footwear, but dang it, these so-called "Scalas" are nice! It sports a charming mid-rise cut, a collapsible brown leather upper, and best yet, Lacoste branding that is as minimalistic as it'll ever get. A great alternative to the loafers I wore for the whole of 2010 and without a screaming green crocodile in sight too!
