    It actually was. The late-90's, early 2000's (before Kanye) was when that flossing luxury brands started. Check out any of those Cash Money videos from that era, dudes are name dropping Gucci, LV, Burberry, Prada, etc.

    Alright I'll go ahead and absorb all the heat and hate to negate all the Kanye talk. Come spring/summer time, this makes it to my rotation.

    Great, it is now the Official Kanye Sneaker Thread.

    I want to see baller sneaks not overpriced fashion house sneaks or show us your shoes which is another thread entirely.

    Handled those Lanvins with the red, those things are so heavy, pretty sure they're at par with my PS Ricards (and probably stiffer)

    You guys do realize that most people that buy LV shit do it for status, right? Why is it wrong when rappers do the same thing?

    RFX got any D&G sneaks because at the moment it looks like you've got as many abominations as you do epic sneaks

    edit: I'm not against "status" items... It's okay to pay for a name. But when you are rocking 10 ugly status items at the same time, you're being a tool. I am not even someone who hates rap ps just think these dudes are an embarrassment to themselves.

    Man I need clean, black sneaks, good quality too.

    Other than CPs, I think I saw some Lanvins that looked awesome... but also probably even more expensive [​IMG]

    Agreed. I think that's just what happens when poor people come into a lot of money. Just like all these crazy ass people with LV monogram leather in their cars, haha.

    Plus I thought any publicity is good publicity and as long as their brands are seen on the net, their good with it. Again, that is just based off how crazy people get when Kanye (or JayZ) wears stuff that doesn't have a big logo to say what brand it is.

    It's probably like Cristal.
