My guy friends have been sending me the same text message for the past few weeks: “ADIDAS COLOR SHOES SOLD OUT. HELP!” Translation? Adidas’ Metro Attitude high tops, which just hit stores in April, were already flying fast. Most of Soho’s big sneaker shops ran dry last week, leaving an unlikely reservoir around the city: the terminally trying Urban Outfitters, which stocks them in stores and online. If you’re staring at these kickers and thinking, “What’s the big deal?” take heed: they may look like neon marshmallows alone, but they transform feet into something magical, especially when paired with skinny jeans and a blazer. Get them now, while you still can.
