WISHLIST #2: FEET TREATS

My current wishlist is almost unreadable at the moment, there is so much stuff out there that I really want to get my hands on. But my bank balance and my retail addiction are not the best of friends!

Here are a few items from my 'feet treats' wishlist that I reeeeally really want! 

The first item on my wishlist, is a par of the Nike WMNS "Gamma Grey" Roshe Runs. These are availible online from Offspring and Office for £69.99, but unfortunately for me, they're not stocking their smaller sizes online! The Roshes are running from a UK5 up. I have neither stores near me and so this could make things a little difficult!

The next item on my wishlist, which is a little odd as I never thought I would steer away from Nike but, these WMNS Reebok Classics are real nice! Would be perfect in the summer and pastel colours are really on trend at the moment! You can pick these Lemon coloured classics from FootAsylum for £59.99.

As well as these two, the Air Jordan 5 "Grape" and "Black Grape" are on my wishlist. With my footwear addiction becoming every so slightly apparent, the next item on my list are the Air Jordan 5 "Oreos"

I literally cannot pass on these when they release later this year. I want them to join my collection and sit right next to my Oreo 6's and the rest of my 5s! With a 3M tongue, no chance these are getting passed up!

This post has been dedicated to footwear but I want to throw something else in to the mix which has been hovering on my wishlist for a while. I really like the Classic Fjallraven Kanken Backpack in this Forest Green colour. I have felt slightly reluctant to spend £56.00 on a backpack, but with the opportunity now to use a 10% discount I am more than tempted!

So, these are just a few things I'm lusting over at the moment and guaranteed there will be more things possibly before I have finished writing this post! What should I get first?!

AIR JORDAN V "GRAPE" - COMING SOON!

As you are all fully aware by now, Jordan V's are my kryptonite. If you missed out on picking up these in 2006, then you'll have another chance very very soon! For me the countdown has begun! 

This "Grape" colourway is due to release on May 4th, and will be joined later this year by its sibling colourway "Black Grape". Dropping just before my exam period, these are definitely going to be a pre-stress treat!



Featuring popping colours of Purple on the midsole and the tongue, licked with Emerald on the branding, all upon a crisp white base! Makes my mouth water! Not to mention that smooth leather being highlighted and finished with black accents on the lining and heel.

Have a look at some more pictures below:

The Grape's are a very desirable colourway despite the fact that Michael Jordan never wore them himself during a game. They also featured on the cover of the Air Jordan Flight Collection look-book in 1990.

Also worn by the legend who is Will Smith, so if all that above hasn't convinced you, then this might....

I am most definitely going to be picking these up to add to my family of 5s! Are you going to be buying?

NIKE ROSHE RUN iD


Nike iD has recently seen the arrival of the Roshe Run, and what a hype it caused! 

The Roshe Run is one of my favourite Nike shoes, but not everyone is convinced. Despite that, it's insane success meant that it was only a matter of time before it became available for us to have a play with.

I messed around with the pastel colour options that were on offer. These pastel colours are pretty girly compared to what I would usually go for, but in the hope of a summer season this year I have decided to stick with it. What do you reckon? Fingers crossed, I will hopefully be able to pick up a pair of iDs soon!


This latest addition to Nike iD has been a very exciting time for me, as I'm sure you're all aware. I love the Roshe Run silhouette and bank balance permitting I'd have every single possible colourway combination haha!  

But, I want to see what you lot have designed for the Roshes - #TalkCasuals or @shangry_ on Twitter or Instagram. I will pick my favourites and post them up on the Facebook page

FRESH LACES

Yesterday saw the first edition of the Fresh Laces event. Much respect to the guys at Fresh Laces for putting on such a good event with the most chilled atmosphere I have ever experienced at a sneaker fair.

Such positive vibes down there yesterday; good people, good music, great stalls! If you didn't manage to make it down then, unfortunately for you, you missed out.

Apres Bar was small but was filled with a selection of sellers that had some absolute gems up for grabs. Everyone was really nice down there and no ridiculous price tags which was even more pleasing. There was such a variety of stalls, from trainers to jewellery, art work and music!

My boyfriend and I un-DSed some trainers for the event yesterday, was only right. James wore his Nike Air Foampostie One Paranormans, SUCH heat!


Fresh Laces was a great success I'm really looking forward to seeing more from Fresh Laces, and for the next event. Big up all the sellers there and Fresh laces for putting in a lot of work that paid off. Also massive shout out to Big J's Kitchen for providing some of the best BBQ sauce I have ever had. Was a nice to be able to enjoy two of my favourite things as the same time - BBQ sauce and Trainers haha! Here are just a few of the people I met and  pictures I took yesterday (in true style I forgot my camera, so sorry for the iPhone snaps but DIY or don't, right?!)

VANS OLD SKOOL "YEAR OF THE SNAKE"

I absolutely swooned when I saw the images of these in January, and I am so excited to find out that they have hit the stores, and soon to hit my feet!

Now available online and in store from Office and Offspring these suede Vans Old Skool YOTS Pack come in multiple colourways ranging from yellow, turquoise, navy, red and purple. 

Released from a UK 3 and up at £60 I will most definitely be picking up this colourway:


I love pastel colours and this minty fresh colour looks so clean. The Old Skool model has had a slight rework for this pack. As you can see from the pictures the branding, heel and tongue have been licked with a faux snakeskin detailing. Each pair also comes with a second tonal coloured lace, just in case you want to go all out and switch up the white laces.

Here is a quick look at a few of the other colours:

The classic silhouette appears to be the perfect canvas for the YOTS flip on this tonal pack. 

That snakeskin textile has me sold. 

Will you be picking up a pair? 

Which colour is your favourite (or will you be getting the whole pack?!)

THANK YOU MR POSTMAN #3

So I've arrived home back in London for the Easter break and boyyyyy did I arrive home to some treats!

First thing that I opened were these S/S 13 Huf "Plantlife" socks. I ordered these from BEN-G store in Amsterdam. It has to be said, this lot have brilliant customer service and after a little mix up they dealt with my problem almost instantly and had it resolved by the next day! I also picked up a second pair of these for my boyfriend as a treat for getting a new job.



The next thing are these beautiiiful Carhartt treats. You will have seen this Carhartt Aldux Print Shirt on my WISHLIST post. I gave in oops! I ordered this from Resurrection. I used a 10% discount code and with free next day delivery I couldn't say no!





As well as the Aldux print shirt, I also got this short sleeved Floral Carhartt Shirt from Urban Outfitters with my student discount. It's much more girly than the shirts I usually go for but it's so cute and going to be perfect for summer (if that sodding season even exists anymore!)


My next big treat, which you will have also seen on my WISHLIST, are these Digi-Floral Janoskis for £65 that are to dieee forrrrr! I picked these up from Lost Art who are a skate shop based in Liverpool. The boys over there are brilliant, and my friend Jen and I even got a free shirt each which was a nice surprise! 




Last but not least, this arrived and topped off what has been a brilliant Easter weekend. So very in love with my new Thrasher X Parra "Credit Card" tee. As you all probably know by now, I love Parra! Bought this online from Note Shop in Manchester, brilliant for only £22.95 and free delivery!



You have probably realised by now that here are 2/3 of the items on my wishlist, which can only mean the 3rd is on its way and a new WISHLIST is being drawn up as you read this! Watch this space!
