Kiss me, I’m Reebok St. Patrick’s Day Classic Sneaker

Begorra! 

Yes, they are real. Reebok St. Patrick’s Day Classics. Green, with white trim, shamrocks, and “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” on the heel cup.

And a goddam Union Jack on the label. Use orange laces on these buggers and you could start another civil war right there on the sidewalk. If you check out the other model through the link above, you’ll see that the Orangemen are also well-represented. I can’t wait to see that in an updated version of West Side Story.

A sneaker you can wear once a year. The fashion world has reached its apotheosis, people; here is where it ends. Here, Karl Lagerfeld swallows his own tail and vanishes in a puff of brimstone.

Besides, they’re Reebok: they’re crap. Soft, pretty crap, but it’s a good thing they’re only wearable one day a year, because that’s the only way Reeboks would last more than one year anyway.

I’m wondering, looking at these, if they were designed by a Dublin dominatrix who, being new to the business, hadn’t really gotten the hang of the “Kiss my feet” thing yet.

“Yo P.Paddy, is it me feets ye’d be kissin?” Heel, boy.

  1. You can’t make it up can you?
    What next I wonder, green tampons?
    Harley Davidson has a HD version for everything and I’m sure I saw some HD sanitary protection – they’re very wide and for the older generation. Not going anywhere fast is a feature.

  3. Of course you’re correct

    … they’re Reebok: they’re crap. Soft, pretty crap, but it’s a good thing they’re only wearable one day a year, because that’s the only way Reeboks would last more than one year anyway.

    This is a day of mourning for many of us Irish descendants. Saint Pat and his divisive, destructive gospel message are being commemorated yet again. Suffice to say that If I had green Reeboks I’d be burning them right about now.

  4. Now, TT, what would the Irish do without a good excuse to bash each other over the head with blunt objects? The history of the Island is relatively consistent, Christianity or no Christianity. I explain Irish culture by telling people the story of when Cuchilain was four years old and he threw the king into a ditch and broke the necks of all his hounds because the king was in his way.

    Philipa, respect. Are there Irish biker gangs? At least we now know what their bitches wear.

    Also, I am thrilled to have made a post on The Manolo! It is the superfantastic!!!

  5. those shoes look too girly…………………oops, might see somebody in my neighborhood with a pair in a week or so

  6. I’m reconsidering now. I’m thinking that I won’t need a shelaigh (sp?) to clobber anyone over the head with if I sweat into a pair of these ugly footcovers. WTF! I could have a pair of the next “weapons of mass destruction”.

  8. A huge multinational corporation trying to make money out of a Christian Saint? What next, trying to make money out of Christ himself?…

    Oh yeh, Christmas, right. Good point.

  9. I would like to see Reebok come out with a pair of Thanksgiving day sneakers. They could have some cool turkey feathers on the sides and a beak in the front. And how about a whis bone suspension, you could almost fly!. Go air gobble, go.
