The Reebok Ice Cream Board Flip II Black/Fennel colorway was released this week.
Though I have never understood the mass appeal of these shoes, a lot of people really love them. The Black/Fennel combination looks pretty nice compared to some of the other colorways that have been released in recent months.
The skate look from Pharrell Williams and Reebok features a textured toe cap and the signature skull and crossbones ice cream cone on the heel.
You can get this shoe (as well as pretty much every other colorway) from The Finish Line or

The Saucony ProGrid Paramount is one of the best running shoes on the market today.
These shoes are climate controlled with their Comfortemp system. The fabric cools and warms your feet to maintain 82 degrees. The mesh fabric helps stop blisters and the full-length ProGrid system gives you extra cushioning and shock absorption.
There’s a lot more technology that goes into these sneakers that make them a top shoe for runners. But more than that, they look cool.
The styling of the white mesh against the gold is pretty sweet. The black trim and red detailing enhance the look. The women’s version (pictured on the next page) combines white and silver for a similar look.
The Fred Perry Fall and Winter collection 2007 will debut on October 9, at Stless. The selling price is around ¥11,550. (Japanese Yen).This is a great edition for fans of canvas sneakers. Canvas is soft, flexible, light and a treat for feet. The thin fabric does not encase the feet tightly and allows for air ventilation. This type of sneakers isgood for people who suffer from sweaty feet.
I used to have plain colored canvas dress shoes. I washed and scrubbed them quite a few times during their lifetime. However, Fred Perry’s new design uses dark blue stripes to absorb some of the used look. The shoes will not look so worn when the stripes are present to help disguise the streaks of dust, and grime from wear.The front toe pads are in a soft beige color. It facilitates walking out in style. When you happen to kick up some dust, the toe pad protects the rest of the shoe from getting the direct hit of the dust. Of course, you can wipe the toe pads occasionally to help maintain the shoes.
This Fred Perry Fall and Winter collection comes in blue pin stripes, plain white and off-white. I recommend the plain ones for work and formal function wear. The blue striped sneakers would add just the right touch of jazz to any casual outfit.
My title may seem harsh but this warning is not because of any hatred I have for Supra’s current line of high tops. Every skater and casual shoe fan that is looking for a little style with their street shoes should look at the low top Supras offered this fall. Most people who purchase these shoes will not use them for skating anyway so the argument for better ankle support is moot. Check out the various colorways below to get a good feel for the Supra low tops.
If you are inclinded to purchase the high tops, Supra offers a few different styles constructed of all manner of raw materials. The mixture of the suede and ostrich skin used on the high tops above mean a high sticker price but a gorgeous shoe for the right owner.
Metallics are really big in women’s fashion this fall. And now you can have a casual sporty shoe with a sweet metallic look. These Privo Sofrito shoes feature elasticized lacing, so you don’t even need to tie them.
They come in two color choices Chocolate/Brass or Gray/Silver. The Privo Sofrito is built for comfort with lots of padding and a flexible sole.
These casual shoes make a great choice to wear with jeans to complete a casual outfit. They are priced nicely at only $80 from Blommingdales and other national retailers.
This sneaker for women combines basketball shoe styling with shiny detailing to make it a unique choice.
The “Nanette Rave” by Nanette Lepore features a black fabric upper covered with sequins and a flexible rubber sole. These black sequin sneakers will add a little glamour to your casual wardrobe.
They are priced at $120 at most major deartment stores.
The silver laces and heel are nice accents. You can also find them in other colors, such as red at some locations.
