I'd prefer them in silver.
still, they'd be perfect for the girl who likes to climb wearing rings.
Oh no. Cue link to that detached finger pic.
LOL what is that girl in the photo doing?! PMSL!
Nice 'climbing clothes' as well, ho ho ho...
Pink lycra is *so* last season darling:
LOL I can't believe it, look at her hand, she's chalked up! LOLLOLOL! Only I bet it's talc...
Reminds me of Batman and Robin 'climbing' up a horizontal building facade with a stick in their capes to make them hang 'down'. Do you think there's someone just out of shot holding the chalkbag? :)
Shorts AND leggings? Is that acceptable?
> LOL I can't believe it, look at her hand, she's chalked up! LOLLOLOL! Only I bet it's talc...
whaat a great idea - do you think they'll bring out a range of scented chalks?
I don't know, but when I got given some talc as a xmas present my immediate thought was 'can I use this as chalk?' (well it's white, it's powdery....). But no, talc is really really bad chalk. Sad to say.
306 views of the thread (so far) and no bidders on ebay??? Now, what does that tell us.....

They're good swimmers?
Christ, if they go into production and my work ranges them, i'll quit!
I think i've just given them a way of getting rid of me.
I thought it wasn't allowed to do that sort of thing on here?
Anyway, they are tacky. Gold is SO 1980s.
sorry but anything gold that looks 80īs in SO in!!
I would get them but size 4!! what a shame.
I think what you meant to say is they're f^%$ng UGLY !
hmm... think I'll stick with my banana Katanas...
They smell more?
apparently a chalk bag is to follow with a compartment for tampons and tiny pet dogs. oh, and it'll look sexy.
who is stella mccartney? is it pauls daughter? i honestly have no idea.

I had to google her too/
News report updated:
"Own a piece of climbing history. A pair of Adidas Rock Shoes designed by Stella McCartney, daughter of popster and Beatle man, Paul McCartney."
But what's she ever done on grit?
"To find the right measurement please go
a size and a half UP in your street shoe size"
Surely the hardcore go DOWN a size and a half?
I think they're selling them as fashion shoes, so they're telling people to add on a size and a half, otherwise they won't be able to go clubbing in them without dying of pain by 10 p.m.?
Not surprising then taht no one is buying, you'd need little size 2.5 footsies...
"buy me loose for multi use"
surely they are not seriously any more than a fasion item.
That said I know a few kids in the school goups who would be queing up to get a pair!!
Uhhhhh....I just put a bid in!
I like them....well I'm sure my daughter will.
ifind that hard to believe mick. i'm sure you've brought her up better than that. hell, i bet she even talks about the Peak.
> ifind that hard to believe mick. i'm sure you've brought her up better than that. hell, i bet she even talks about the Peak.
Well she's a girlie-girl as well as an athelete and she plays a mean violin.
She'd give Johnny Dawes a run for his (stone) mo(k)ney
You can see her strutting her stuff here:
Maybe I should just get her a new Polly Pocket or an American Girl Doll?
When they go out into the wicked wild world....and all that peer pressure....you do lose some control.
get them for her - she might be able to flog them as 'vintage stella mccartney' in a few years to help pay for college!
and if it *is* stealth, I want feetfirst to start offering resoles with pretty patterns :-)
I really really like them and I might bid even though they will not fit me!
You guys just have no taste.
They're a version of one of the shoes from the Salomon range that never appeared, resprayed by Stella.
I don't know about the rubber though
I expect to see the yoga numpties at the Kazzle sporting them soon.
