Marimekko, the Finnish fashion and lifestyle brand that continues to look fresh and ageless decade after decade, recently turned 70.

The sneakers are a hot commodity of course—sneakers themselves being so infinitely collectible and covetable, especially when there’s a limited number circulating a rapid, fashion-hungry globe. The high-tops and Jack Purcell low-tops are hard to get—unless you live in Seattle that is.
Pirkko, the Swede specialists near Pike Place Market, have them on their shelves. I was told they’re getting orders from Australia and beyond, so if you’re in the uh, market, for a pair yourself, better head there in person sometime soon.
We’ve got a couple styles in the slideshow here; for more, check the Pirkko site.
