^ from: www.myairshoes.com - Too many sneakers? Some obsessed with sneakers would say, "not enough sneakers."
There are many sneakers of many styles. However much sneakers mean to people depend on their creativity and their drive in owning sneakers. A number of guys have a pair of sneakers for them to wear proudly with their outfits. These can be sneakers for casual days, days playing sports, even certain guys who wear sneakers to the nightclub. Girls have many styles as well for sneakers. Many prefer simple leather sneakers while many more favor canvas sneakers. Some girls love skimmer sneakers (which I have blogged about before), some wear a regular pair of low-top sneakers, and some others even prefer a pair of high-top sneakers. Some girls even are appealed by high-heel sneakers and various chic sneakers (which I have also blogged about previously). Males and females love wearing sneakers so much that many feel they could do EVERYTHING in sneakers- go to work, go to school, get married, etc.
I am not obsessed with sneakers much to be honest. Though I wear sneakers often, I am not so casual in my dress that I'd rather wear sneakers than any other kind of shoes. I have only one pair of sneakers I commonly wear. I had a flat pair of American Eagle sneakers once. I stopped wearing them for the most part. In case you didn't know, I am not a brand-name guy. So I have these (dare I say) no-name athletic sneakers I mostly wear as far as sneakers are concerned. I have had pairs of sneakers from American Eagle and Skechers before.
Leather sneakers are often customized as well. I've seen a few old K-Swiss commercials where males and females showcase their K-Swiss sneakers in various styles ranging from customized to clean white. Everyone really into sneakers have their own unique style and what they look for in a pair of sneakers. For many, sneakers are more than just shoes- they are a reflection of one's style and character. Sneakers make statements about ourselves that we may otherwise not utter from our mouths.
Another part of sneakers and their obsessive character is the fact you can trade shoelaces. If you have a unique pair of shoelaces, you can take out the ones that came with the sneakers and put in the new shoelaces. Some girls even have ribbon shoelaces to go into their sneakers. With a wide variety of sneakers for both males and females, certain sneakers benefit from being able to replace the shoelaces with a unique pair.
There are many reasons why sneakers are so well-liked and so obsessive. These are just a few ideas. What are YOUR reasons if you love wearing sneakers?
So proudly wear your sneakers if you so love them! If you think sneakers are or can be obsessive, I have a few websites for you sneaker fans to check out. Most of these sites may mostly pertain to just men's sneakers. Have a look:
