Mid Season Sales...


puma 917 "houston street" sneakers / asos.com

it was only about 2 weeks back that i was lamenting that some of the fall winter 2010 collections weren't in stores yet. and yesterday i received a flurry of mails stating that the mid season sales are about to commence. harrods and liberty are both having 10-15% discount days this week, and online retailer asos.com also started their mid season sales with up to 50% off.

and so i clicked on the shoe that was on my wishlist, and low and behold it was 40% off! ok the puma "917 houston street" sneakers weren't too expensive to begin with, but with prices now reduced to £24 it is rude not to. they threw in free shipping as well, so what excuse have i got? it's fun, it's young, it's sturdy, i'm sure there's places i can wear it to.

a few sizes still available, click here if you are interested. can't wait for my shoes to be delivered!



since it's the mid season sales, it's rude not to check out other stuff as well. i spotted the adidas "BW Army Mid A.039 Trainers". and before we go "oh no they didn't!", margiela's sneakers were reworked and based on the german military sneakers anyway. so it seems like adidas did the same by modelling their shoes after the same army.

honestly, i think margiela's versions are much more desirable, but adidas' versions is now reduced in the sale to... £36. martin margiela's lambskin sneakers retail for £290.

i'm in favour of all or nothing, so i didn't get the adidas sneakers. now i'm waiting for an excuse to pick up the margiela sneakers...

  1. Love the Puma sneakers, just not meant to be I guess. They are out of my size.

  2. I guess people really like those german sneakers: Dior Homme, Margiela, Adidas, Robert Geller, and I'm sure others have their own versions of it. I prefer the Adidas ones.
