Jeremy Scott and A$AP Rocky for "Complex" Magazine.

Welp. Anyone remotely familiar with the music and style sensibilities of A$AP Rocky and Jeremy Scott had to know this was coming, right? By "this," I'm, of course, referring to the just-released news that this duo has teamed up with adidas Originals for a pair of limited edition collaboration sneakers. The "Fashion Killa" MC and the runway-ready streetwear (or is it street-ready runway?) designer started off as long-time admirers of each others' work and quickly spun that mutual respect into an actual friendship—supporting each other and even covering magazines together. On top of that, they each have their own separate relationships with adidas: Jeremy having contributed collections upon collections upon collections for the brand, and Rocky having lent his voice and pretty mug to a commercial earlier this year. The triple-headed collab was inevitable.

Mariah Carey Heels

We are so sad to report that our resident diva, Mariah Carey, will be temporarily stepping down (heh) from her fashion throne by giving up her heels for an undisclosed amount of time. You might have been tipped off to Mariah's dislocated shoulder from all those insanely awesome sequin-covered slings she's been sporting as of late, but did you know she ALSO cracked rib and chipped her shoulder bone when she fell during her Beautiful video shoot? Yowza. Hubby Nick Cannon told E!, "She's feeling a lot better and taking it one day at a time." And that means staying out of her killer platforms. :( Nick said, "She's only in them when she needs to be in them, like when she had her [Hurricane Sandy relief benefit] concert in Central Park. She's just being very careful."

Hayley Williams Sneakers

Sink Or Swim Custom Kicks by Jill Forie

Here’s something that’s the best: you cop a new pair of shoes. You put them on. You stare at them on your own feet in admiration. Look at those spiffsters! Fresh as hell! And since you found them at a little off-the-track sneaker store while on vacation, ain’t nobody in YOUR town gonna have those. That’s right. As far as you’re concerned, they’re one of a kind. THAT is the BEST.

However, little sunshine buckets, there’s one more thing that’s even better: having a pair of sneakers that are actually one of a kind. This is the part where we introduce you to Jill Forie, the creator of Sink Or Swim Custom Kicks.

On a scale of one to “how she do dat?”, Jill’s art skills are insane. See those shoes up there? She hand painted them. And each pair—all 450 she’s created over time—is completely unique. Jill works closely with each customer to create a design that’s completely tailor-made. Once she even made a pair for Hayley Williams, who wore the crap out of them.

Jill’s currently working on her Masters in Berlin, but she took some time to answer a few questions for us. Ausgezeichnet!

Since she first burst on the scene, Rita Ora's love of sneakers has been an integral part of her personal steez. Her love's a pretty unconditional one, wearing them with literally everything and not discriminating between classics and platforms. Jordans, however, are her absolute fave. Still in the Nike fam, Rita posted a super cute picture of herself to Instagram repping a pair of crisp white Air Force 1s with a matching all-white outfit and referencing lyrics from British rapper Dizzee Rascal.

Taylor Swift Keds

It feels like just yesterday we were drooling over Taylor Swift's super adorbs summer Keds sneaker collection, but this week she released her fall-ready line, and suddenly we're really excited for the colder days ahead. She brought back some of the same polka dot and floral motifs from before, but added an extra fresh spin on each shoe design. First up, T Swift added a layer of vintage white lace to her signature red sneaks for a girly spin on the classic show. Word on the street (OK, fine, product description) is that the Champion Vintage Lace sneaker ($50) was modeled after one of her favorite frocks. Even cooler--these shoes also come in a black on black version.

Adidas Archive

The Adidas Archive transports you to a world of legend and wonder.

You know those times when you’re cleaning out your s***, and a boost of determination miraculously overwhelms you? Suddenly, you’re deep-diving to the trenches of your closet, re-discovering that shirt you only wore one time and solving the mystery of your missing shoe. And there’s the hoodie from 5 summers ago that you can’t part with, so you put it on and find $5 in the pocket. But, lo! A box! Let’s go through the box. Two hours later, you’re drowning in nostalgia, but your closet isn’t any cleaner.

The digital Adidas Archive is a lot like that. First of all, just like cleaning out our closet, it took us forever to discover (the Archive launched in February). But whatever, because this jam is the coolest, and it deserves to be shared.

Kristin Cavallari Wedding Shoes

We don't know about you guys, but we're still basking in the oh-so-beautiful glory that was Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler's wedding. In case you missed it, the ex-Hillsie tied the knot in a GORGE strapless Monique Lhuillier gown complete with beachy waves and a barely-there makeup look. Since her floor-sweeping dress covered her feet, we weren't able to peep her wedding shoe game at the time, but as it turns out, K Cav actually designed her own shoes for the big day, and—even better—us mere mortals can purchase them too! *high fives entire world* Kristin added these shoes to her ever-growing Chinese Laundry shoe collection, and they seem to fit her simply-chic style aesthetic perfectly.

Travi$ Scott

For 30 years, the Reebok Classic Leather has been a trusty pal you can depend on; a beacon of strength, the default designated driver, the friend who gives you gives you sound relationship advice that you never listen to but know is totally on point. This is the kind of chum that when the time comes to celebrate a milestone, you drop everything to show up and rage. So when Reebok threw a party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Classic Leather silhouette, you bet we were there.

The guest list was pretty rowdy—Ace Hood was there to perform, setting the place ablaze with the highlight “Bugatti” (which, if you stick your head outside at this moment, you’ll probably hear playing from a car window). One of Yeezus’ recent collaborators Travi$ Scott was in the building to perform too, as well as Kirko Bangz and Doug E. Fresh.

Hannah Simone likes shoes. Who doesn’t, right? But work with us, here. So as we were saying, Hannah Simone likes shoes. Flat shoes, spiky shoes, flippy floppy shoes and running shoes. Since she plays a model on New Girl, she gets to wear all kinds of different shoes. One day, she stumbled into a pair of black wedge sneakers that quickly became part of her regular rotation. They were comfy as hell, versatile as heck and looked awesome as f*ck. Hannah Simone danced in them, strutted in them and maybe even rescued a family of baby ducks in them once. (Not confirmed.) They were made by a company called Modern Vice.

Brothers Jordan and Jensen Adoni had a dream to follow in their father’s footsteps and start a shoe business - but not some hackneyed shoe business. They wanted to establish a factory in New York City and craft wares with their bare hands, like men. Only a couple years later, their company Modern Vice holds fort in a 7,000 square foot midtown factory, and they're one of few manufacturers making shoes in New York.

When Hannah heard their story, she wanted to see what happens behind the scenes at Modern Vice. How did her new favorite pair of sneakers come to life? She found the company’s traditional values and ambitious nature inspiring, and the idea of bringing manufacturing back to America resonated with her. But also, how many times have you seen a shoe being lovingly forged by expert craftsmen? Exactly. Never times. Simone had to see it. Lucky for us, she invited us along for the field trip.

Styles from Vans Fall 2013 collection.

Vans is no stranger to rad collaborations, adorable lookbooks, and even some pretty awesome DIY action (hi, Macklemore!). However, despite debuting platform skate sneakers last season and having its toes consistently dipped into the fashion world, there's ONE trend the brand has held out on...until now, that is. Behold, the Vans sneaker wedge! Proving that the hidden heel really IS the trend that just might go on forever, the athletic giant is rolling out two new styles for Fall 2013. So whether or not you're a fan of the hidden heel yourself, there's no denying the staying power of the wedge sneaker. After all, they're comfy, they're versatile, and, in the case of the solid color Vans Sk8-Hi Wedge and the Leopard Print Sk8-Hi Wedge, they're still injected with that signature Vans sporty swagger.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
