Off to Dublin in the green: What to wear on St Patrick's Day
Maybe you are still undecided what to wear on St Paddy’s Day this year (March 17th). After all you may be involved in the big parade , or catching the Boston Celtics, or even on of the faithful in Paradise (Parkhead Stadium, Glasgow home of the Hoopies) and need those special shoes to complement the occasion. Well fear not for all the major players in designer kicks business have been like Leprechauns and bust a gut to have a pair for you. Reebok have a St Partick’s shoe version of the Sir Jam which is a darker than normal green, with black and gold accents subtly decorating the upper of the shoe and a clover leaf on the back of the sneaker. Puma meantime would like you to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day in a pair of the Sky II St. Patty’s Day edition shoes. Again green and gold makes its way to the upper of this 1980 classic, but with just one shamrock sitting on the back of the shoe. Adidas have stuck with their St Patrick shoes from last year but have introducing an Easter edition of Adidas Top Tens. Not to be out done, rivals Nike will promote their Court Force Low for a St. Patrick’s Day edition shoe. This years St. Patrick’s Day Air Max 90s, are rather plain and simple with just a white and green upper.
