I purchased the Reeboks aka 54-11s I have on in the pictures above about four or so years ago. I always admired these 80s staples. My mother used to own a pair that she exercised in. I remember them vividly. They were black and possessed a slightly worn look. So when I grew up and was able to locate and purchase my own pair, I was overjoyed. I first wore them around my friend and her ex-boyfriend, and I distinctly remember him laughing at my bright yellow kicks. He was a sneaker head at that time, and I totally respected his collection. So when he began to make fun of my classic kicks, I immediately questioned my decision to buy them even though I had a lasting, deep love affair for the shoes. A few days after the laughing episode, my friend called me and asked where I got them from because her boyfriend wanted to purchase her some. Well look at that!
I told myself from then on that I would never question my style again because it's just that.....MY STYLE!
Remaining true to who you are and your style aesthetic is the best way to keep it classic. No matter what the crowd is doing or even if they are laughing, do what's in your soul. Your confidence in your fashion choices will make your outfit stand out that much more.
Stay true to your choices and who you are.....keep it classic.
