In a dual universe, do both


Shoes, both vintage
Gucci / Nike

As they say about a dual universe; everything is delivered in pairs and is strongly connected to its opposite. Life and death, beginnings and endings, love and hate. The villain is simultaneously the hero. Dark and light, high and low, discomfort and comfort, left and right.

Yes, this shoe situation could be an analogy for life itself. It embodies my forever mood.

Though these are opposites in so many ways, I feel they do carry the same attitude. These shoes will get you places. They both say ‘I’m really in a hurry’. They both have a certain pointedness and directness about them. Oh, and they are both vintage from around the millennium change.



The classic mules are Gucci, I found the exact same pair here. The nike runners are still a bit of a mystery, a lovely girl on Instagram pointed out they look a bit like a Nike Monarch. (If someone knows the exact name of this version, please let me know!) For now, I’m leaving you with a selection of mules and runners.
