Why buy kanye sneakers when you can go on Adidas, nike, reebok, puma and order CUSTOM SHOES- wait 4 weeks and have them? sure waiting 4 weeks is long, but you get custom shoes.
I buy a few extra pairs to be able to put it tord a personal pair but I would love to be able to open a limited kicks store ... I love sneakers and have a passion for making videos

Of course they try to make sneaker heads look bad by talking about some random murder that has nothing to do with young sneakerheads
ur mum gay (25 days ago)
Tbh honest I miss the old days where people were buying shoes that they themselves like and enjoy wearing. Nowadays people are buying expensive shoes from hype beast brands just to show off while the shoes aren't even that good. A good example is Gucci. Their shoes look like an Adidas Stan smith but just with Gucci branding, and are 10x more expensive. A true sneaker head buys shoes and enjoys wearing them and enjoys having the luxury of caring about their sneakers.

I bought 350 V2 Yeezy boost and some Gucci casual wear shoes. Let me tell you it’s not worth it. Unless your dedicated. Gucci is cool to have. Yeezys are just lame. Wore them like twice. Just letting you know before you buy.

The kid they used is a bad example as it seems they are very priviledged doesnt seem like his parents struggle to make a living and with a house like that it seems that his parents surely helped him get started with the sneakers.The real sneaker heads start off with nothimg with the harshest beginnings and hustle their way up to people like that kid who never struggle to get a pair

Consumerism is a disease. I’m all for capitalism of course. But these kids are so focused on the temporal things of life and material goods. I’d be surprised if any of them played sports, and if they do, are any good.
