Well let me tell you a little sumthin' sumthin' about the Tims in my day.
Back in early 2000's Tims were huge in the Men's shoe department. Thanks to my ghetto, NY bf at the time, who taught me the harlem shake was BIG on Tims making me aware of them 24/7 - eye-roll. -_- sigh..
My eye-rolls suddenly transformed into wide-eyes when I saw the most gorgeous thing in the world while watching Beyonce & Jay-Z's "Bonnie and Clyde" music video back in 2002.
It was the first time I witnessed the female version of the Tims! OMG I was excited! I had to have them and I had to match my bf and all his Tims (god now I just eye-roll when I think of those days). It wasn't enough that I had an Allen Iverson jersey dress to match my bf's taste in bball players but now I had to match with his Tims. We were both excited for me.
Manolo Blahnik's version of course cost thousands of dollars and I was just a recent graduate fresh out of college so I didn't have those kinds of funds but when knockoffs became available - I WAS ON IT. I bought myself 3 pairs and the rest was history. :) Good times with those shoes.
The Manolo Blahniks modern version of the 2002 shoe can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Guess I'll have to break them out again. :)
Above: Video blog As I show the original Tims that I bought over 10 years ago while I listen to: If I could go - Angie Martinez, Bonnie & Clyde - Beyonce & Jay-Z, , Hey Ma - Camron, Nothin' - N.O.R.E, No, No, No - Destiny's Child, You're the One - SWV. When music was real 90's, early 2000's.
