Sunny Soles for Spring!

Ever since I went to Chicago last month and saw all those Pink and blue, brown and green, and even black and purple shoes at Nordstrom, I’ve been seeing the colorful shoes everywhere.  There was a HUGE article on them in Esquire and a similar article in GQ. They have them in two-tone colors on the vamp and like last year the colorful sole shoes.  I spent the big bucks on the Black Grenson Fred’s with the white crepe soles, and until tonight I havent seen a wild color i like until now. These are Mark McNairy New Amsterdam Brogue Boots available at Barney’s New York.  The sole is a nice flow Yellow and they are well constructed and retail right now at $480.  So far I haven’t seen a duo color shoe with the colors on the vamp and uppers but I am still looking.  But it was crazy the  guy at the Nordstrom in the suburbs of Chicago told us that the Pink and Blue two-tone Suede wingtips were the fastest selling and at the time they were ALL sold out. Go figure.  Alas, I have yet to see someone wearing them.  BTW:  The two buckle Monk Strap looks like a big trend for Spring and Summer and did you know that Barney’s on-line shopping site has 240 shoes for men!  That is just crazy!  And most are pretty nice.

Also when I was checking out the Mark McNairy Shoes, I found these somewhere on Google Images. Thought these might work well too. I like the finish on them.  They call it a special “waxing”  not sure where to get them or how much they cost. Have you been seeing the two-tone colored shoes on Men this Spring on the streetz?  LMK  Take a pic and tweet it to me if you can.  @scottmackenzie3  or upload it to facebook.com/streetzblog

Hunger Games-Work-Out for the Hard-Core

It’s kinda’ funny, I haven’t been writing as many blog entries because I’ve been so engrossed in the second Book “Catching Fire” and working out harder than ever since I have a DR’s appointment coming up this Monday. I’ve already cut out my favorite drink of most of my life-Gatorade, but I quite haven’t given up Steaks and Sweets. This Monday’s DR’s Appointment will let me know what I can and can’t drink for at least a while. We will see on Monday.

Tonight, I took a break and went to the HedKandi party at Aloha Tower, it was pretty cool. I saw some old friends, met some new ones and had a good time. but needed to leave a bit early since I forgot to eat lunch and dinner. I got a bit too dizzy and needed to come home for some food. And its at this point that I found this video-The Hunger Games Workout!   Just what I’ve been doing, starving and working out too much.

I read about this in New York Magazine and it sounded kinda’ fun. But after watching this video, “I Don’t Know” the lady teaching it seems a bit to strict and pissed for me. I prefer Don over at Clark Hatch. Today we did 30 exercises with 12 reps each, that was pretty hard, but he is so positive I barely noticed the 26 minutes that went by. To me it felt like about 12 minutes and it was fun and we did legs which I usually don’t like at all

I bet I could come up with a funner Hunger Games Challenge, Here’s my shot at it:
Run on the treadmill while watching bootleg Hunger Games DVD’s turned up real loud.
Take a break and Shoot Bows and Arrows with the XBox Kinekt.
Break into two groups and do an old-fashioned tug of war with the losers falling into some fun mud pit.
Then to rinse the mud off and Since I live in Hawaii, we’d take something out of the second book and do a 6 lap swim, mostly the crawl stroke or whatever you are able to do.
Boxing with jabs, crossovers and by favorite-the wholloping upper cut. All with the pad things, of course no hitting each other for real.
Then a nice 10 minute Jacuzzi with a cold plunge-giving props to  the torturous weather in book two, but I’m sure much more enjoyable.

How do you like that Hunger Games Work-Out? I’m Game..How bout You? Or would you rather have the yelling lady at the New York Sports Club? HeHeHehe. I bet she’s actually pretty nice in real life, she’s probably just putting on a show ..and why not …it was on MTV’s on-line Channel. And their viewers probably need something more intense than The Sitch and whoever knocking themselves into walls or passing out on the floor.

LMK if you find a fun Hunger Games work out or click on comments and give me yours.  Have a Nice Weekend.  I have Kentucky to win the Final 4, Who do you have?
