Nowadays, buying sneakers is such a huge thing and it's too easy to get caught up in all the hype. Nothing bad about that of course, but at the end of the day, nothing feels worse than having a closet full of shoes that you can't wear in a few years. Here are a few pointers before you make that purchase!
Know what fits you best
Of course every shoe looks good, but only you can tell if it looks good on you and your body type. If a certain shoe is pretty high, it would work on thin legs etc. Knowing what fits you best pays in spades.
It's your money, it's your choice
You worked hard for it and save up for them. Don’t let the masses fool you into buying something that’s not making your shoephoric heart skip a beat.
Your shoes will make or break your SHOUTFIT
We all dress a certain way, it almost becomes our trademark of sorts. With that fit/look, of course certain shoe styles will look good with it. Experiment, be brave- but only with stuff you feel comfortable with.
Hyped or not, buy it
Trends die out, your love for sneakers won’t. The hype list is just a guide so at the end of the day, it’s all up to you.
When it's off the radar, it's easier to cop
Much easier to cop stuff you like than the in demand stuff. You like Chucks and Superstars? Then go for it! It ain’t gonna be that hard!
Shoes tell a lot about you... so be true
You are not a chameleon so stick to what your persona says. Don’t be afraid to try new things but never forget your roots!
