Fwiw, I think chucks are a little ugly too. I don't really like any captoes especially contrast ones. I'm just more into plainer sneakers (baller or not) with cleaner lines. I like Vans, Common Projects and Stan Smiths because of this and I also associate them more with my background and interests. Lavers are a bit too chunky and retro Nikes are too nerdy for me. On the other hand, I think Nike Air 95s are kinda cool so go figure.
sorry, maybe this topic should be in a sneaker thread instead of here.
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)
