Bringing the wedge into 2013..

isabel marant street style sneakersWell it all started a few years back.. when those WHO COULD rushed out to grab the hidden wedge classics offered by Isabel Marant...ON THE STREET | Isabel Marant these shoes could be seen on the well heeled feet of everyone from Gwen Stefani to Beyonce‘   ( Love on Top video)… They are quite the find.. and  IZZY’S (Isabel Marants) are not cheap.

These joints start at about $650 per pair.   We knew here at Bamboobanga that something this simple would SURELY be duplicated.. and BAM.. in steps Nike, Puma, Giuseppe Zanotti, and EVERYBODY with a wedge sneaker at varied price points..  I feared that we would leave this shoe in 2012 but alas it is very much alive and still kicking and I believe they are  brilliant..  This sneaker has the same impact that the Manolo Blahnik “TIMS” did several years back.  A masculine shoe was recrafted for our delicate B-girl feet .. hahaha .. and ladies from the runways to the ghettos are jumping onboard.

NIKE has even created a re working for the CLASSIC DUNK .. with the hidden wedge heel.. EXCELLENT..

You can find the Nike joints priced anywhere between 120.00 and 150.00

I know most of you had your eyes glued to Ye’s feet during the Watch The Throne tour.. Niggaz are going to be NEONED out on some TRON SHIT this summer LOL..  I believe they will price at about 139.00 to 150.00 .. GOOD LUCK HUNTING OUT THERE !!

Snakes in the Grass… SNAKESKIN ALL FALL..

Mitchell and Ness Snakeskin Lakers Joint $400.00

Well now.. Fall is upon us, time to put away the Herve Leger bandage dress (will that fucking thing ever die) and the booty shorts. No more platform sandals for ladies and v-neck T’s for brothas,  will now need the Pharrelesque cardigan to compliment.. as it’s getting nippy..



Not since the 80’s have I needed to adorn so much snakeskin.. I mean damn I long for my EK’s with the snakeskin on the side and my matching curve Nails with Snakeskin all over in Avocado Green..YESSSSS… I won’t be going back to that and neither should you ..but ladies and gents. allow me to introduce you to the SNAKES.. you should not avoid..

check out these boots.. you could certainly “push it along” in these joints..

These are awesome..although a sista might have to place them in the etagere lol.. yes i am country we have one LOL.. These are too damn high to be skating around in. I love Keith Haring.. he was the consumate artist.. I have a huge (print lol) of Free South Africa in the office. I really love how the Fashion Houses are keeping him noteworthy.. Allow Nicholas Kirkwood to step in. You have seen his shoes on Nicki Minaj, Beyonce’ , Rachel Zoe, and Foxy swears she stays in em. (however per that last shoot in the WonderBra i might beg to differ lol).. They are funky and the heel is quite recognizable from 4 blocks away lol.


Thanks to the folks at for this little Nugget of info.. Check them out.. I stay there daily lol…

Apparently they done fucked up at the LOUIS VUITTON factory. MR. WEST is not happy with how the finished product turned out. I hear there were complaints about the tassles and the back of the white version is not high enough (heavy sigh). UGH OH!!!! KANYE has decided that these will not be released until they fix them according to his likings. So with that being said, you won’t be getting a pair of these…….ever!!!! Continue reading
