post #63826 of 117666
Does everyone who hates basic NB models also hate chucks, basic nikes, rod lavers, vans, etc.? They're shoes designed for sports that have become normal casualwear; I understand (really, I do) why people think they're ugly, but I don't understand why one brand gets singled out for becoming more popular in the same way that other arguably ugly sneakers have become popular.

(Also, really sorry to keep this discussion going, but I'm really curious)

What I take away from SW&D is that it's populated younger people dressing in a perceived fashion-based idiom, outside of their actual personality. People like SVB and parker are dressing, in my opinion, directly within their personality and work environment and, as such, can move out of SW&D and into here.

I don't know if it's because there's no discussion or because I sub-consciously filter out the bad fits in SW&D but the sufu waywt tends to be pretty mediocre-to-bad overall.

i really, really hate and have always hated chucks, tigers (ugh), stan smiths / rod lavers / superstars / sambas

I do kind of like jack purcells though shog[1].gif and I like a lot of old Nikes like I can see that the cortez is due for a revival, which is probably happening anyway and I just can't see it. I like classic sauconys a REAL lot, would probably have those if i didn't have the NB thing

I'll never be able to dissociate Cortezes from cholos, so... yeah, not for me.

The twisted part about styleforum is that all of these guys are <23 or 24 at the most probably, and have the impression that everybody in SW+D is 16. If these guys hadn't given up on life 2 years before they could legally drink a beer, I would've been able to save them with steez. Instead, they shall have a lifetime of suckling on huge leathery pancake breasts, learning to subconsciously block a screeching woman's voice, and paying lots of bills that they'll never get out from under, despite how MC suave they are.

This is the guy who invites you to his house to hang out, and then gets incredibly mad at you for touching the empty craft beer bottle collection he has displayed on his wall on makeshift 2x4 shelves.

But they dress like grown-ups!

I used to play dress up too. When I was 4. But only if the girls got full-naked, as I used to insist, and call it. devil.gif
