I’m a self-proclaimed sneaker snob. I’m not into sports shoes or sneakers. You know what? This one’s on me. You all know what I’m talking about. I’m also the main reason I wear sneakers. My goal is to be able to wear nice ones without feeling like a douchebag. I am so not into sneakers that I can’t even own them. I’ve tried.
So I like to imagine that sneaker snobbery is a very normal and natural thing in the world, especially among those who are into sports shoes and sneakers. I think it’s because of the way we wear shoes. When we put them on we don’t think about them. We think about all the other things we’re going to do with them. We don’t think about them until we put them on that we don’t want them on anymore.
