For once, we are pausing to take a moment to recognize something that has absolutely nothing to do with furniture or design, but has such great importance to us. The 75 th anniversary of D-Day has made us very reflective of how fortunate we all are to have lived, for the most part, in a time of peace since the time of WWII. A few years ago, while at an antique market, Jamie and I came across a diary written by an RCAF Armourer someone responsible for loading bombs onto planes , who captured in great detail, his thoughts and experiences as a first-hand witness of the war. From a period of January 1, through to the end of the war in Europe in , he wrote about his friendships with his brothers-in-arms, his growing frustrations, the highs and the lows shared by everyone at the base, the small events that tell the personal story and the big events that changed the course of history for all. The diary includes detailed and exceptionally written first-hand accounts of the bombing of Britain, various bombing campaigns over Berlin, the wait for and eventual arrival of D-Day, the death of Hitler and the end of the war in Europe. Not only are his diaries filled with pictures of his friends, soldiers, bombers "Kites" and key news clippings, he was also a wartime tourist in the sense that he includes pictures of sites he saw on days off, the plays he went to and all that caught his interest while based in London. It is an authentic and primary view into what the world looked like back then and we are deeply grateful for the chance to have had a peek. They were lucky to have each other in such a time. The diary is one of the things we treasure the most in our home and it serves as a constant reminder of how lucky we are to live in this world, in this time, because of those who put their lives on hold to serve in WWII.

This was the main reason why they were a favorite among martial artists and athletes. From Wu Shu practitioners to the Shaolin Flying Monks and Kung Fu masters of old, the Feiyue sneaker became a staple and to this present day is still a regular in martial arts clubs around the world, and even the French training discipline of Parkour. The grippy rubber sole, reasonably strong build and sensitivity they give the wearer are traits also valued by free runners and traceurs, for whom intense movements really put the sneakers to the test. In the Feiyue sneakers were taken to France and quickly picked up on by the likes of Vogue and celebrity stars such as Orlando Bloom even his son was seen sporting the cult item. In the fashion world Feiyue has gained prominent cult status, but it will always be their firmness, sense of contact with the ground, and the engagement of movement due to their minimalist design that make Feiyue an ultimate necessity for the urban walker and the island runner alike. And while others may try to break the mold, Feiyue has done that without even trying! View account. Date April 17 Comments Comments. Tweet Like Plus.
