Nike, everyone's favorite corporate megolith, is producing harris tweed sneakers.
I have to admit, I lust for them, and so (apparently) do others. New Balance has quickly followed suit.
Scotland's Sunday Herald (also know as the Sunday Hun) notes the following:
'Sunday Herald fashion editor Eva Arrighi said the tweed sneakers are squarely toeing the line between being a haute couture inspired choice and "pure dead brilliant, by the way" ned fashion disaster.
"But tweed trainers could play into the hands of the Burberry cap brigade. No doubt they'll be banned in a pub in Aberdeen soon enough."'
Let's see, if my choice is between rich fashion snobs and neds, pick me up a 2 liter of cider and I'll meet you round the bus shelter!
Finally The Jaggy Thistle site points out how we should be grateful to nike for saving Harris Tweed.
N.B.: Despite my political objections, you'll see me wearing a pair. I'm just that shallow.
