S/S 19 : ' SNEAKERS & SUN'
New Season, New sneakers. some of our favorite fashion brands just released some gems for S/S'19! AdsumxReebok with the Pyro. ADerxPuma, with another dope drop on various pairs, our favorite being 'venom sneaker'. And of course, we are always bringing you some new to get acquainted with if you're already not, Clearweather brand, a forever favorite. Vor shoes from Germany, caught our attention with their detail and most importantly gum soles on some classic silhouette, reminded us of Maison Margiela with a mix of common projects.
One can argue that a pair of sneakers is a crucial component of your outfit. With the increase of demand in the sneaker culture, a new drop every week. We can barely get our funds together to prepare for the latest pair (well at least some of us ) right? --- with the instant growth of ' i need to have the newest' and buying to resell, the new kids on the block tend to grab it before we even blink our eyes. A lot of people now have a new appreciation for sneakers, especially with the emergence of streetwear brands and the power of Instagram followers, we see many brands collaborating with some of our favorite sneaker companies, remixing the retro’s that works with their uniqueness of each individual company. Its also fair to say that everyone has a long-standing relationship with there, Nikes, Reeboks since adolescent years. We feel inclined to purchase the shoes our parents couldn't afford to get for us or just have sweet nostalgia of once owning a pair. I must say I love the supply and demand of clothing brands, sneaker enthusiast and other influencers being able to work with Nike, Reebok, Puma and more. Giving each pair of sneaker a new identity and a new story to tell, whether it's making a shoe more comfortable or just giving it a new facelift.
We can't forget the commencement of new sneaker brands, who are taking the minimal approach to their structure of a sneaker. Giving the folks who are looking to wear a great comfortable pair to work and pull off the business casual look. Some of these brands may replica the top honchos, but the prices fit the model. In my humble opinion, I believe that the majority of them will take over the market in due time. Of course we can't imagine Nike, Adidas, Puma, being out of business, however as I read in Phil Knights book Shoe God( a great read ), in the time that he started Nike, Adidas and Puma were the top sellers, that didn't stop him from starting his brand- and look now he is at the top with them.
