black milk had a big release last night- the nylon wars ep. 1 (ep. 2 to come in a couple weeks) and it was cool cuz that’s mostly what black milk is, but i wasn’t in love with anything (i fear i might have missed “my” launch. there is a lot of cool stuff that they did in the past but no longer stock that you can see here) except for a pair of shoes that they styled with some of the items. if you peruse the site enough, you’ll see that i’m not the only one who has noticed the awesome shoes their stylists choose. there’s actually a section that shouts out solestruck.com as their shoe provider, with the brand of choice being jeffrey campbell (of course). black milk actually has a pop up shop, complete with the black milk x jeffrey campbell collabo, that just launched last week at the solestruck store in portland, or. i was muy sad that i couldn’t make it. i’d love to try on a pair of leggings to figure out what size i am.
anyways, back to these wonderful shoes. in typical jeffrey campbell fashion, there is a platform and there is a covered wedge. the back off, though, calls out its platform by using a silver material to highlight it. love it! i don’t love the photography from the solestruck detail page so i’m using a pic from black milk that features these awesome shoes (and one of the leggings that i actually do like from this launch). it comes in some bolder color ways, but they’re all too loud for me. i like the simplicity of the black and silvers because the silver detail that i love so much doesn’t get drowned out by a big bold color.
