So during 15 minutes of boredom and lack of inspiration, I made a list of all my shoes (excluding flip-flops, slippers, and prom shoes). I have a wearable rotation of 29 pairs of shoes, 15 of which are sneakers (or sneaker-esque). This means 52% of the shoes I wear are sneakers.
* today I bought these bad boys by Nanette Lepore for Keds for $7.34! MSRP = $120
From this list I can conclude 3 things about myself:
1. I like shoes more than clothing
2. I'm on my way to becoming a sneaker-fiend
3. The affinity I have for sneakers is counter-intuitive to my gender, and I need to accept the fact that I am, indeed, a girl and not a boy.
My struggle with gender is not a new one--boys can get away with almost everything! Boys can get more tattoos, cooler clothes are made for boys, and cooler shoes are DEFINITELY made for boys (except in the case of Black&Lu--the male market is not one I've made a foray into, other than the previously posted customized Kanye/Common Vans, which technically were not by Black&Lu).
Boys get to have all the fun.
