I needed a “drop off” shoe for when I took the kids to school. The ballerina soles were dead. I was getting cold and needed something that got me to school on time (while looking foxy). Since we don’t go out anymore, dressing up and doing a runway walk is the eight blocks it takes to get to school. I wanted those Marants like mad, but they were sold out everywhere. So I got the cooler snakeskin Giuseppes, which helped kick off the trend for me last year. And then I finally got the Isabel Marants, after waiting for months. Then my little fashionista boys started becoming obsessed with basketball sneakers. I know more about LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Cam Newton than I ever thought I would. They are my guys’ icons. I buy all the clothes in the family and these little covetables belong to my sons, Oliver and Gus, who are 10 years old. They're twins, but they have very different tastes. When they were born, my icon for them was Lenny Kravitz. Then I was fawning over baby Beckham and his skinny jeans. Now, Nike and adidas entered our life courtesy of their friends—and Justin Biebs. To satisfy my shoe-whoreyness I am at kids’ Footlocker every Tuesday checking out new releases. They drop weekly. Oliver is most drawn to the trends. Gus wants function with a little color. So, all of those are their kicks. The Crocs? They love ‘em—what can I say?
