Why you should be proud to be a Sneakerhead
Not everyone is fond of the term “Sneakerhead.” This may be because non-Sneakerheads used it in a derogatory way, but who really cares what they think? You should be proud to wear the label of being a Sneakerhead for a number of reasons. Besides looking fly in the new Yeezy Boost or Nike Air Max, you represent your generation’s style and charisma. Here are a few reasons why you should wear the title of “Sneakerhead” proudly!
Sneakers are a part of your identity.
People may have hobbies and interests, but it is likely that a Sneakerhead is known for being a shoe king. This is how people will identify you. Give them what they want - stellar kicks. The shoes you decide to wear are a way for people to see who you are and what you are passionate about.
You are in good company.
The Sneakerhead community is worldwide. There are millions of Instagram accounts, Twitter pages, and Facebook groups that you can join to stay connected to those who have the same interest in sneakers that you do. If you come to terms with your obsession, there are people out there waiting to converse with you. The sneaker world is at your fingertips.
You earn the title of being a Sneakerhead, it is not given to you.
Being a Sneakerhead is a privilege, not a right. Not just anyone can proclaim themselves to be one, they have to earn it. If someone identifies you as a Sneakerhead, there is probably a good chance that you are doing something right. You should aspire to the Sneakerhead title or else you don’t deserve it.
People will look to you for style advice.
Being a Sneakerhead comes with hidden benefits. Your friends and family will look to you for style advice if they see that your outfits are always perfectly put together. You can help the people you love by putting them in the perfect pair of sneakers and it’s a win-win.
You have invested your time and money into your collection.
You may have gone to one or one hundred sneaker releases, but there’s probably a good chance that you’ve spent a lot of time and money on your sneaker obsession. Show the world what you love by wearing everything in your closet.
You will learn important life skills.
Your eye for detail and knack for researching will benefit you in other areas of your life. All those days you waited for a release taught you patience and budgeting between three different pairs of sneakers will help you pay your bills one day.
Your passion is being recognized.
Get out and show the world why you love the the fast-paced sneaker game!
