A kids “confidence” doesn’t need to be measured in “status symbols” at that early of an age. This fvcking r-tarded sneakerhead culture needs to be purged from the gene pool. I consider myself a practical man. I myself only own 14 pairs (2 pairs for a day in the week) of quality rubber shoes (because I need to from being worn out) and to that I have 4 more additional (2 pairs of genuine leather (1 black, 1 dark tan, and 1 light brown}for formal events all regularly polished with shoe shine after use,


a 1 steel toe boot)}} all immediately sent to a my patron shoe repair show on the first sign of damage))) and 2 ye olde trusty slippers and 1 croc under for those dirty jobs around the house all under a thousand dollars. I know I know, they need to flaunt opulence because they are frequent seen in public and need to keep their reputation up as befits stars of their caliber in their respective industry but in this economy? That’s just fvcked up, stupid even!

With that being said, I just want to share with you the wisdom of Macklemore in his song Wing$:
[ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAg3uMlNyHA ]
And I quote:
We want what we can’t have, commodity makes us want it

So expensive, damn, I just got to flaunt it

Got to show ’em, so exclusive, this that new shit

A hundred dollars for a pair of fake shoes I would never hoop in


Look at me, look at me, I’m a cool kid

I’m an individual, yea, but I’m part of a movement

My movement told me be a consumer and I consumed it

They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said

Look at what that swoosh did. See it consumed my thoughts

Are you stupid, don’t crease ’em, just leave ’em in that box

Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk

That’s my air bubble and I’m lost, if it pops

We are what we wear, we wear what we are

But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Knight tricked us all

Will I stand for change, or stay in my box

These Nikes help me define me, but I’m trying to take mine, off

Food for thought.”
