Heyyyyyyy y’all !! Long time no see. I took an extended vacation but we are back in FULL EFFECT. So let’s jump in .... so you wanna be a sneakerhead now huh? But no really it’s super cool if you are into sneakers or just now taking a dip because the whole point of sneaker culture is to share your love of sneakers with others !! For those that know me personally, they know Ima always rock a good sneaker and make it fashion. I know that a lot of the girls are not sure where to start ..... don't worry I got you, girl !!!
Beginner Buying Tips:
Step 1: BUY WHAT YOU LIKE !!!!!!!!
Today, the majority of sneaker culture is filled with hype beast ( people that buy things just because everyone else has them). The only opinion IS YOURS, so buy what you like, just make sure it looks good!!
Step 2: DO A LITTLE RESEARCH
For me, I happen to be looking online and I saw my very first love for shoes! I saw how many colors and silhouettes and how the shoe came to be, then when I got older/ got a job I started buying the things I wanted.
** side note: KNOW YOUR SIZE *
I meet a lot of people when styling them that do not know their size, which I am there to help. But for the girls buying sneakers, that’s not something to play with because a lot of the sneakers go with a quickness
Step 3: HAVE FUN AND STAY POSTED
This is the biggest thing within the sneaker world that people lose in all the hype. Enjoy your items. As cringe-worthy as this may sound to sneaker collectors I WEAR EVERY SHOE I OWN no matter how limited. And that’s because I truly love everything I have bought and what it represents.
Follow your local sneaker stores and brands on the socials to stay tuned for all the drops
