Idk why, but I picture steve jobs in his turtleneck, newbalance (lets switch em for black ones), and dad jeans when you say that hah.
personally, I don't really care for the sneaker. Then again, I never wear sneakers.
While I respect your opinion, I think there is a very odd assumption that a Prada sneaker is "more than just any old sneaker". Take off the red strip label and you've got a pretty regular sneaker.
on that though, last time I was in new york, I happened to meet some very "ghetto" people that loved to pair these sneakers with ed hardy t-shirts to hit the clubs.
