Just like the web, everything deserves a 2.0. Looking for something that will help you feel lighter after the heavy holiday feast-ivities? Your search has ended here. Check out the shoes of the day; the new Adidas Originals – Jeremy Scott JS Wings 2.0 Leather shoes. A few months ago, these kicks were released from the coop. Now, why didn’t Nike think of this for the Air Jordan? Perhaps the drawing is stuck in a sketchbook entitled “shoes that Michael will never approve.”

Nike sells Air, and Red Bull may give you wings, but these shoes might give you both. You can find out more here.
Wow. Wings. White. Word…2.0!

Brooks Green Silence Running Shoe Review
Brooks Running is a well known running and sport shoe company whose latest shoe release is the Green Silence. This shoe couples the best of running shoe design concepts with environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing. At 6.9 ounces, the Green Silence is a light, flexible shoe that feels natural when worn and provides the thinnest possible comfortable barrier between foot and road.
The entire Green Silence shoe has eco-friendly shoe design incorporated, starting with the basic structure of the shoe made of 75% post-consumer recycled materials. To decrease energy exerted during manufacturing, the Green Silence is made up of about half as many shoe components as similar models. All glues and adhesives used in the making of the Green Silence shoe are eco-friendly and water based and, overall, over a third less solvent was used in general. Even the dyes and colorants used to finish off each shoe are completely non-toxic.
Brooks doesn’t lose site of the importance of function with these environmentally friendly runners. The Green Silence is as effective, powerful and comfortable as any other running shoe. The midsole heel has a thickness of 18mm and the forefoot thickness measures 10mm. The Green Silence also has one of the lowest heel-to-toe drops compared to other Brooks shoes.
Brooks Green Silence
Brooks has reported that this shoe design has been in planning stages for many years. The product of their brainstorming has proven to be a stylish, comfortable, durable and flexible shoe. With the amount of eco-friendly materials used, this shoe is equally great for you and the environment you run in.
- Pros: They are made by Brooks with the environment in mind.
- Cons: They’re red. I thought this was a green shoe?
- Buy them if: You care about the planet and your feet.
- Forget about them if: You don’t want to draw attention to your feet.
Do you want to run green? Wear red. The shoes of the day: Brooks Green Silence. Shhhhh….

Vibram Five Fingers “Floves” For 2011
In 2011, Vibram will be releasing new and exciting Five Fingers shoes. Nearly everyone has seen Vibram’s unique line of foot-gloves (a.k.a. “Floves”) known as Five Fingers. When first introduced in 2006, they were different. They weren’t like anything anyone had ever seen. They drew attention for their strange appearance and questions about comfort, durability and versatility. By now, all types of Five Fingers shoes are well known to be comfortable, heavy duty and long lasting. They just don’t break down like typical running shoes. For 2011, and just as flexible and comfortable as their predecessors, the new Vibram offerings include a brand new line for kids and a new adult style designed especially for runners.
The Bikila LS, Vibram’s first of its kind running shoe, is as innovative to minimalistic running as the original Five Fingers was to the shoe industry. The “Bikila” named after Abebe Bikila who in 1960 rejected a fresh pair of Adidas shoes and ran bare foot just like he trained. The Bikila LS is the first Five Fingers model to feature laces, added to provide perfect fit and customization. This shoe’s sole is also different than the rest of the Five Fingers line, specially designed to propel your forward as you run and literally keep “you on your toes.”

Vibram’s kid sized Five Fingers are anxiously awaited but the details of this new line remain a mystery. Parents with kids who love to be barefoot will take solace in being able to protect their child’s feet while still allowing them the pleasure of bare feet. Vibram has so far released very few details regarding this addition to their Five Fingers line, but parents and kids alike are sitting on the edge of their seats for the release date. So are we.
Wonder what barefoot dress shoes will look like?

What are the best recession-proof summer shoes? SUV’s. No, we’re not talking automobiles – although these are the cleanest, most fuel-efficient SUVs that we could find on the road. What are all of our readers are telling us? This is the best, most comfortable shoe for the summer. Yes, we have reviewed these shoes before and here is what you need to know about these Sanuk’s:
- These shoes are hand-made. Really.
- Wear them with or without socks. (If you are over 45, socks are OK with these as long as you have your braided belt on.)
- They feel like a flip-flop but sound like a shoe.
- Get them wet, they will easily dry. (If you’re the impatient type, hairdryers typically expedite the process)
- A new pair smells like new, an old pair will need washing.
- They taste like….
…well, that pretty much wraps up this review. In the mean time, send us some to taste test Sanuk and we’ll tell you how close they come to chicken. The business on top, party on the bottom shoes of the day: Sanuk SUV
You can buy yourself a pair for best deal here. Or, if you are looking for some additional support, they make a semi-high top called the Sanuk “Outlaw”
My apologies to jetsetcarina, I know you loathe these shoes but, they do come in camouflage so no one would see them on your feet!
