This is simply MY opinion BUT


I just wrote this on my friends facebook wall as he was contemplating buying a pair of Y-3 "sneakers":
I think y-3 is ALL wrong and if I see a dude wearing it, I wont flirt with him, and Im not joking.. Its just WRONG, a bastardization of the sex appeal of athletics and taking it into this sexless "label" territory.. Y-3 is boner kill magic.
and then I couldnt stop and added:
Label contradicts jock, its like creme make up and a beard, its just gross... Trying to do too many things at once and if youre a jock you dont need a label so to have a sneaker that is a label is just ... Ewwww.. Its like bringing a fag hag to a leather bar... Why do you have to bring "THAT" HERE?!!? Its castrated and creepy and makes no sense. Im ALL FOR a full queen effect but that is VERY different then a label sneaker, and YES the worst are the prada or gucci sneakers... EEEK. I just think "For ONE MOMENT can you NOT need a crutch.. ONE MOMENT can you stand using your own testicles?!" Im obviously ALL FOR a full queen but at some point be a boy, or give me a PINK HIGHT TOP if you want to give BOTTOM which is HOT,but do not give me a LABEL.. just what are you trying to say.. youre RICH?! Rich is NOT HOT?! Nobody ever thought a gogo dancer was hot because he was RICH or had on LABEL SNEAKERS... EVER....
and THEN I added:
and to come back to these sneakers, minus the y-3 there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in this design which merits a second look, if you like the yellow look up "lemon yellow high top" and Im sure 45 options will come up made by actual sneaker manufacturers that will be comfortable, because these will not be, and they will be far cheaper, and you will get respect from the cool kids for making your own styling decisions. This sneaker some label queen will like you... Ewww.
but who knows maybe you like label queens, maybe you wanna attract that into your life, I mean the idea of sucking a persons dick whos self worth stands only on SOMEONE ELSES NAME name (Dior, Gucci, Prada) dick is fierce right??? ..

I normally like the content on this blog. It's usually funny and self-effacing, but this post is as ridiculously affected as the over-priced sneakers it targets. I agree that there's something mildy contradictory about a high-end sneaker, but it's almost comical to make claims on "jock" identity via a rant about styling. I don't expect this comment to be published, but for what it's worth I think your blog is more fun to read when you're not trying to tell people how to squeeze themselves into what amounts to little more than a narrow, deeply biased and ultimately queeny aesthetic standard. And last time I checked, the cheap sneakers are as aggressively branded as the pricey ones, if not more so.

I never understood the labeled sneakers that just look like Stan Smith or Dunk knockoffs...why not save the money and buy the originals?

David, I was actually thinking that it would be great if you could show/recommend some of the cool shoes and clothes that you like to wear -- the staples of your wardrobe as it were. You have a "jock realness" look that I really like.

Well my look is pretty specific but also BASIC. You do a longer basketball short, and a sleeveless t shirt with a hight top, pretty easy, dont do too many colors either, no more then 4. Gold chain a MUST, diamond earring option, it might not feel right at first but thatsjust because you think youre not allowed to be a dude because theres nobody around to back you up, but im here and I say go for it, youll be happy you did.
Sources for good t shirts are Karmaloop, neff, and Mishka NYC ... Go have fun.

Thanks, David. I don't think I can serve it like you can but I think I could pull off the sneakers. What kind of high tops do you wear? Jeans?

Mother... it's a shoe. I understand more than anyone has the things we wear can carry many connotations but a shoe can be just a shoe. You really went hard into girl! haha! What was going on that day?
