The Gentrification of Streetwear and Sneaker Culture

Reply
  • I've been wanting to talk about this and these ideas for a hot minute. I made a video as a jumping off point so we as a community as a whole can talk about what's going on with Streetwear.

    $1,200

    For a shoe that came out less than a month ago. Why is this becoming the new normal who the f*** is paying these prices!!?

    I also feel like parents try extra hard these days to have their kids stunt. My mom would laugh me outta this world if I asked for some $200+ shoes, yet it seems like I see kids anywhere from age 3 to high school in stuff like yeezys.

    It just makes me so mad, because I genuinely liked the Chunky Dunkys and to hear so many people talk about how they're only getting them to profit and or sit on a shelf pisses me off.

    Like why?? What the f***

    def interested in the concept of someone's outfit looking like a costume.

    I think it was the youtube channel 'The Causal' that mentioned how in japan people dress how they live(something along those lines).

    This the US has this problem so badly because people have bought into the concept that you can just buy your way into cool or buy your way into being fashion forward.

  • So much marketing and social media influence makes it hard for people to even determine if they genuinely like something or are just being conditioned to like something.

  • So Illegal

    This holy s***. But we have such an "anti-gatekeeping" mindset that doesn't keep it real and let people know when they're goofy.

    I know a lot of kids got into streetwear because their favorite rappers where said brand or whatever and hell I got into it because Tyler but I also know my tipping point was seeing the Supreme Salt/jawbreaker tee and loving the design.

    I wasn't getting it for the brand name, and that's what pisses me off, and nobody called it out

  • "ARE U THE MOMA? ARE U THE MET?"

    im SUUUUPER pro-gatekeeping in regards to authenticity and knowledge

    people dont recognize that these things are CULTURE, not just articles of clothes, music, or side hobbies.

    i think if it was re-framed as a culture the way it's handled would change drastically, where authenticity and knowledge are just as valued(if not more) than what you can afford.

  • reddit is cancer, i'm on streetwearstartup to put my s*** out and the people on there are so corny it hurts me so bad
