New converse

Stage One: My feet.
Stage Two: THE WORLD.

I also bought a pair of classic Dr-Who-style optical white with the red and blue trim, for when I tire of global domination and feel like being a Time Lord.

Retrospective addition to Xtin's New Year's Resolutions 2008: BLING THE FEET.

Still reeling (see comment on Flickrstream), but able to get a handle on things just enough to suggest .

Xtin said...


I must purchase those immediately. And they have them in knee-socks! Nothing like a little Japanese porntacular element to one's hosiery, I always say.

Krista said...

I've been surprised by the ways in which last year's Happy Socks Initiative ( changed my life. I should write about that when I get back home.

In short: you'll never regret Blinging the Feet.

Xtin said...

Krista, I believe you already. Right now I am wandering around making lentil soup in my favourite apron and my ruby-slipper converse, and I feel like I could take over the universe.


I have another 2008 Bling Initiative going, but it may not be ... uh ...appropriate for the blog :)

Heidi the Hick said...

holy smokes, are those RED CONVERSE covered in sequins?????

I am knocked out.

Xtin said...

Heidi, my cool sometimes pink-haired friend! That is indeed what they are!

They come in black too. I feel that your husband requires a pair.

Your feet are a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

We need matching mother-daughter pairs, and we need them NOW.

Tom Bozzo said...

Wow. That's just about all I can say, wow.

Xtin said...

But *you* have a Lego Millenium Falcon, Tom. I just cannot compete with you for either coolness or WOW-factor.

But one can but try.

i can't think of anything perverted to say
so i'll say nothing

Xtin said...

Red sequinned chucks? And fatrobot can't think of anything perverted to say?

It's a sad, sad day in the blogosphere.

Heidi the Hick said...

Okay, I'm back, and I need to know if they are available in size 14 men's. 4E width.

Because I think they'd look perfect with a black suit and tie. (Once a year whether he needs it or not.)

Xtin said...

Tragically, Heidi, they don't -- they only go up to a 10. I think they think only chicks are going to wear them.

How very limited of them, is all I can say.

(They come in silver, too ...)

Heidi the Hick said...

Once again, limited thinking foils fashion. Gah.
