If 1985 Were a Boot

…it’d be these hot pink babies from Forever 21. Plus, a peek at life on the road from Sonic Youth, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and others in a new scrapbook, and Kenneth Cole’s 925 Technology footwear launch party

If 1985 Were a Boot

Forever 21

The Trooper from Forever 21: Rad.

I LIKE CANDY: They look like crazy-expensive limited-edition Doc Martens from our 1980s fantasies, but these hot pink patent leather babies are a paltry $24.80 at Forever 21. (The Trooper comes in black, too – more versatile, but way less fun.) Available at all Forever 21 locations; find a store here.

HEEL TO PAY: Be on deck at 9AM to join Kenneth Cole at the launch of his 925 Technology Silver Edition Footwear Collection, which he’s dubbed “The most comfortable shoes a woman has ever looked good in....” You’ll have first crack at the revolutionary footwear – designed to make high heels feel as comfy as flats – and Cole will sign your shoes himself. 9-10AM, Kenneth Cole Rockefeller Center Store, 610 Fifth Avenue at 49th Street; 212-373-5800.

LIFE IS A HIGHWAY: For musicians, nothing is quite as bizarre, exhilarating and also isolating as being on tour. That’s the idea behind the just-out “Art of Touring” (Yeti Publishing), a book of art, photographs, and writing by dozens of talented artists – Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Le Tigre’s Johanna Fateman and many more -- reflecting life on the road. (There’s a DVD of live footage, too.) $19.95; available at Bluestockings Bookstore, 172 Allen Street near Stanton Street; 212-777-6028.
