Displaying visuals of kicks. Just a warning: heavy footwear images!!
A lot of my gals tell me that they don't find sneakers as a fashion statement. I can understand where they're coming from. To them, sneakers are merely meant to be worn for physical activities. Another reason may be that the designs made for women are very limited or have such bright colors that it looks so unappealing whereas, male footwear has such a diverse selections as well as colors and patterns.
One of the best documentaries that I watched is "Just for Kicks". It amazing to see the history of sneakers as running shoes, transition towards urbanized areas. There were also in depth data of each brand evolving and expanding to what is now playing a huge role in other peoples' lives when it comes to self expression and fashion. My only complaint about the documentary is that I wish they could have interviewed more women about their input and possibly share their experience. Other than that, it was a very good show!
Even though I am not a sneaker head, I strongly believe its a great tool to style it with, especially since I highly love urban street wear.
Sneakers hold different functions and there's so many different designs and styles. Everyone has their own way of perception of fashion. Some may simply see it the way it is and others see it beyond it's true form. Perhaps it looks a bit complicated but truthfully, it really is simple.
Just wanted to share my input about kicks. Also been stressed with upcoming midterms so haven't been able to do a shoot. Will totally get back to it asap! Hope you have a great weekend ^^
