Adidas’ Rod Laver has seen a lot of different variations over the year, but the latest version is enough to catch our eye. It seems like furriness is having quite a renaissance in the sneaker world. If you count these Vans, that makes for just one shy of a trend. We’re guessing Spike Jonze has something to do with it…
While we heartily enjoyed our stay in Vegas, we couldn’t help but notice that as a style town…things are getting a little sloppy.
It’s not all that surprising. Having made its name on excess of every kind, we don’t expect the Las Veganese to suddenly embrace subtly refined tailoring or jackets that aren’t covered in fur...but it's still much much worse than we thought. These snaps both come from the MGM Grand’s Bernini and offer a more serious warning than we ever could. It would be nice to try on, but you wouldn’t want to live there.
