The one that got away.



Last Saturday, I purchased the blue Raf Simons x Fred Perry shoes from the online Opening Ceremony store. But today, I got an e-mail from them saying it was already out of stock. My heart sank. It was literally love at first sight when I saw these and I'm terribly sad that my feet won't have the pleasure of wearing them. If anyone knows of other online stores that sell them, please let me know. I'm a size 9 (US).


One last look - worn by one of the gentlemen from Street Etiquette.

So close. Just wasn't meant to be, I guess. I'll be patiently waiting for another pair of shoes to fall deeply in love with. And if I find them, I won't let them go.

The ones from Asos aren't on sale. I figured something out, I'll tell you the next time I catch you online.

Logic, Jkissi:
Hey, my pleasure! I'm a big fan of your blog. I wouldn't blame Trav for loving them so much - they're beautiful!

damn! i'm still wondering how i could get these! the local fred perry shop ordered these but were told that supply's really short, so no dice.

if ever you do get one, please let me know where to find it. featured these some months back and i still want 'em!

I changed my mind and bought the size 8 US (41 European). Check out www.openingceremony.us but I don't think they ship to Manila. You can also try www.asos.com (the whole link is in the first comment). Good luck!

I also fell in love with them but I need size 7! 7! 7! They don't even produce size 7.

Anyways, Thanks a lot! I didn't know The opening ceremony online store ships to South Korea before. I just bought a beautiful opening ceremony blazer on sale. :-)

The Velvet Scientist:
Thank you for your kind words!
Yes, I got them. The people at Opening Ceremony were kind enough to give me the exact measurements of the shoes and I think they will fit me perfectly. :)

Damon:
Yes, I was so happy when I found out that they ship to Singapore as well. Congratulations on your new blazer! Show me how it looks like. :)
