About a month ago someone pinned a photo of a pair of Marimekko Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers on Pinterest, and I was obsessed. The one Scandinavian shop in downtown Seattle did not have the red Unikko ones I had my eye on, so I ordered them from the Marimekko store in Vancouver BC. The package arrived wrapped in logo paper and was adorned with a big red Unikko flower sticker. The shoes come with an awesome matching storage bag and even a pair of orange shoestrings! Here are some photos, complete with lattice laces (which I also learned from a Pinterest pin), and two friendship pins from my crafty gal pal Amy.
