Face Masks as an everyday accessory...shoes edition.

Hello all,

This time the topic of this blog is not just face masks. It's also about shoes. I like shoes...specifically sneakers. Now, I am no collector, but I probably have more kicks than your average person. At least my kids suspect I do. My wife is certain of it. Anyway, here in this blog I am going to post some pics of how I try to match my commUNITY face masks with my shoes. Luckily we have a ton of different colours and I have a ton of different shoes! Enjoy!

Military Green:

This is a great colour. It's understated but is rich and saturated. The shoes I  paired with it are my Adidas Parley Nmd CS1. Yeah that's a mouthful. These shoes are super comfortable...the CS stands for city sock. About right.

Orchid:

The colour of royalty. Purple. Another rich, deep colour that I am a big fan of. Here I paired them with the really funky Converse One Star CLOT. CLOT are an awesome streetwear brand from Hong Kong. I love these shoes.

Bordeaux:

Maroon by any other name. This is a unique colour that has actually sold quite well. I like it because it's subtle. When I wear it out most people aren't even sure what colour it is. Suits me just fine. And I've got the kicks to go with it. Classic Adidas Superstars in a perfectly unique matching maroon colourway. 

Black:

This is like the black tuxedo of masks. Would James Bond wear this mask? Yes...yes he would. I pair this mask with another fantastic Converse collab. These are Converse Jack Purcell x Neighbourhood. And get this, Jack Purcell was a Canadian champion Badminton player who actually designed the original silhouette for Converse! Japanese street wear brand + Canadian Badminton player...I am here for it.

Steel: 

The name just sounds solid. This colour goes with just about any shoe you can find. But I like to match so I chose my Converse Jack Purcell Leather high tops. I mean come on, these are just the perfect upgrade from the traditional canvas fabric on these shoes. So classy!

Royal:

The colour of the Leafs, Jays and Argos. Yes I am a Toronto boy. This Blue is such a perfectly deep hue and you better believe I have shoes that pair perfectly. These are Adidas Stan Smith Primeknit. Stan Smith was a former No.1 American tennis player in the 70s and lent his name to this classic tennis shoe. When it's covered with such a cool fabric and an eye catching colour they are indeed champs!

Red:

This screams Canada doesn't it? My home. My community. These Converse Vintage All Star in an Ox Blood colourway are super light and just add a pop of colour to your feet.

Well I had fun with this and I hope you did too. And yes I am a huge fan of Adidas and Converse in case you didn't figure that out already!

Anyway,masks don't have to be a burden to wear. Especially if you can think about them as just another wardrobe option. I'd love to see your Mask + Shoe combos so take a pic and post it to Instagram while tagging @communitymasks and use the hashtag #myshoesmymask . I'll choose one lucky participant to receive $75 credit for our site to be used towards anything we sell!  

Good luck! Be safe. Wear a mask. (And kick ass sneaks!)

Colin.
