Jack & Jones Footwear x Tuan Le Launch Party

There are three things I can virtually guarantee when I attend a party as a blogger: 1) I will make liberal use of the open bar; 2) I will dance like nobody is watching; 3) I will surprise myself by how well I can still take photos after several glasses of wine. And a Shoreditch soirée hosted by menswear label Jack & Jones was no exception to such antics, especially when accompanied by my partner-in-crime.

The party was in full swing when Maddy and I arrived at Hackney House, which had been outfitted for the launch of the brand new "Fusion" sneaker collection, an exclusive collaboration between Jack & Jones Footwear and renowned sneaker designer Tuan Le. Proudly displayed around the event space, the stylish sneakers gave an air of streetwear supremacy with their distinctive wedge soles and futuristic aesthetic, as if commanding the way forward for sneakerkind.

It was only fitting I wore the "Fusion" sneakers to their own launch party - mine in a minimalist colourway of a black leather upper and white rubber outsole, the two materials fused together by a leather welt. Between taking full advantage of the bar and taking full advantage of the photo booth, Maddy and I hit the dancefloor, where I was genuinely astonished to discover the sneakers had passed the ultimate test for every pair of shoes I own. I wasn't just able to dance in them comfortably, I could dance in them amazingly, a quality which had previously been exclusive to my Cuban heel boots.
