Listen up People of the world, today we will be touching on the trend that never sleeps, or the fad that never really bites the dust. SNEAKERS! Sure everyone tries to be ahead of the trend by wearing the latest "Dunks" or "Jordans". In actuality, you and 900 other people are wearing the same shoe. You don't have to be different, but a little variety on your feet wont hurt right? Right! I myself, am not a big fan of sneakers anymore, but I do appreciate a cool pair when I see one. Here are some awesome examples of the dope space shoe that you should have on your feet:
"Kris Van Assche" Hi-top Black Leather:
These are super comfortable, and universal as hell. You could honestly wear them with any outfit you wanted.
"Maison Martin Margiela" Low top white sneakers:
Same goes for these bad boys, you can virtually wear them with anything you please. The gum to white ratio makes these stand out, and super stylish for any casual outing.
"Common Projects" Low top Blue Sneakers:
Got to have some color! It's spring. You can't be grey scale everyday. Perfect shoes for Central Park! The blue would go really well with a khaki color short, or pant. I will be taking pictures of some good summer outfits you guys can work with.
All in all, you should feel good about the way you look, and what type of sneaker you decide to go with. It doesn't have to be a gum sole, just something that puts you outside the box, and gets people looking at your shoes. Tomorrow I will jump in a little more about those shoes that make you stand out in a crowd. Nice pair of any of these puppies would run about 200-400. Not bad seeing repair on gum sole, and rubber soles are super easy.
