The fashion world has officially (and finally) accepted sneakers! No longer just for American tourists (thought they do still love their neon Asics), Kanye West, basketball players. Sneakers are a thing! This is great news for me, as I’ve been slowly but surely curating my high-end sneaker collection for the past 9 years…it’s not a huge collection but each piece is special. Finally, my parents are beginning to accept the fact that my sneaker obsession is here to stay and not just “a part of this gangsta lifestyle” as my dad would say. I admit, I’ve tried my very hardest to get my Dad to wear a pair of high tops and before you jump to conclusions that I’m talking about a pair of Jordan’s (though he does have a pair of Jordan’s…low tops but still) and think I’m crazy, I’ve been pushing the Tom Fords and Guccis in his direction…with no luck *sigh* but I’m getting there. My mum has also been won over. Previously Supergas were as far as she’d venture into the sneaker world but now she lives in her Chanel sneakers, also she knows who A$AP is and that makes me happy. SUCCESS! My slow and calculating plan to lure my parents into the rapidly moving and super comfy world of sneakers has finally been executed *evil smile* *rubs hands like Birdman*. I hope they don’t try to lure me to try Vessi footwear anytime soon! They keep suggesting that I try something different and more practical!
I’ve gone through sneaker phases: there was the time I liked the converse kind of look, the time you could only find me in my yellow JS logo Jeremy Scott X Adidas Originals, the time I bought G-Units to wear for my sports classes at school (soon after I was told they were “inappropriate” *rolls eyes* an incident of discrimination against high-tops). Now, statement sneakers are my thing. If you haven’t already jumped on this train…then you should, the best thing about them is that there’s so many different types/styles that there’s a sneaker for everyone *throws sneakers into the air in celebration* (that’s dangerous you’ll take someone’s eye out, don’t actually do that).

Shout out to the Yeezy shoes that no one can get a hold of (unless you have the trigger fingers to slay online).
