What Are The Sneakers Dafaq To Wear These Days?

November 05, 2018

Only the ones you really, really like, hey! Faq the trend if the trend is not you because hey, only you can be you, youhoo! You get the dafaq in the What Are The Sneakers Dafaq To Wear These Days?. It’s this pressure of wearing a specific kind of sneakers these days, when, in fact, sneakers are all about fun and comfort. Please consider pressure in the previous phrase as a synonym for trend.

For comfort and fun sneakers were invented in the first place and only many years later reinvented by the global fashion scene. We have been throwing parties ever since. When a trend that’s really good for most of the planet becomes a fashion international trend, it’s a cause for celebration. And through celebration only should a trend become a trend. Chin-chin?

When it does some sort of good to the world also. Chin-chin!

Yet, instead of people actually taking the time and figuring out exactly what pair os sneakers defines them better, people – most of the times – just dive into what the whole majority of the rest of the people is wearing. Doing. Etc. Losing their sense of style or, moreover, individuality. Of course, life is not only about that. Not only, but it is, nevertheless, about it also.

Individuality – always a cause for celebration.

Trends are for a majority of people trying to kind of look the same. But why? Isn’t special what is actually special in each and every one of us special? Trends are cool and established as trends for a reason – hopefully. A reason higher than manipulation only. A reason for comfort and fun.

Maybe special isn’t what everyone wants and that’s fine, because everyone should be able to want and do whatever everyone wants, right? And everyone is definitely not one and one is definitely not everyone.

Still, what do you want?

These are the sneakers showcased by the big fashion houses for the Fall/Winter 2018/2019.

Why though? Are you the whole world? Is the whole world you? Are you you? Oh, you simply like these sneakers? Oh, ok, nothing wrong with that then. As long as you really, really like them. Do you really, really like them? Ok, ok, just making sure. As long as #youdoyou. Yooou (the Robert de Niro tone and look).

In the meantime, I’m walking down the streets with my Nikes on. You know the song?

In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!
