Doug Rutsch from the Sacramento Bee wrote two artcles that I liked about sneakers and sneakerheads. Check these out:
Taking a shine to shoes
Some teenagers' collections of footwear are incredible feats
Eric Lam walks around with his head down, checking out shoes, ready to talk to anyone wearing legit old-school Jordans or Air Max 95s with wild style. He can spot fakes from a mile away.
And if you think those sweet $30 New Balance "kicks" you picked up at an outlet store are gonna catch his eye, keep dreaming.
Get your kicks
Seven sporty-shoe favorites that let guys leave duct tape behind.
Sure, you can go through [life] with only one pair of shoes - you can even take pride in it, duct taping them until they literally fall apart. New shoes are not for everyone.
But a lot of guys are getting shoe crazy. While women's shoe stores have always been a shopping center staple, most malls now have a couple places that cater to men's shoes as well. And with increased selection comes difficult choices. Different brands, colors, styles - and a big price tag.
This is no impulse buy.
Calm down. With research and a good sense of style, you can get the freshest pair of kicks in school.
