So basically you're buying them because of the brand name? Save your money until you get your own sense of taste, man. Nope, I don't buy brands for the name. I buy them for their quality and craftsmanship... plus, I have the money, so why not? I'm just curious because I didn't like many sneakers that I've seen in this thread. I mostly own non-baller sneakers which I like a lot better, I just want one pair or something like that, but I can't find any that I like.
