This is the most pathetic clothing line I have see so far, not only have they just used live trace in Adobe Illustrator to create there logo but they have just cut some shit out of a kids book and stuck it on a hoody, now some companys can get away with this because they do it right not oh no, not here. The camo looks as gay as fuck and I dont think "I am the king of sneakers" is the most amazing or creative quote I have seen on a shirt, disscus.

Yea they are pretty bad.

"GN$" as they call it is pretty corny.

And the worst part is they bite Air Force Ones HARD, but then act like they are innovators.

There really needs to be an official "HATE is the new LOVE thread" for people to bitch about what they think is wack. Id make one but im sure no one would post in it and keep making threads like this. I for one dont like Greedy Genus clothing but wouldnt care enough to make an entire thread about it. Everyone has the right to state what they want but there seems to be a 18 threads a day about how someone hates a particular brand more than people are talking about which ones they like.

Im going to copy and paste this quote in every hate thread I see from now on and interchaning the Greedy Genius part...wonder how many times I'll use it

Since the thread is already made, I'll chime in. Greedy Genius is hot garbage. Overpriced and uninspired. I CAN say that for the most part, their quality is on point.

I've always hated Greedy Genius, just because it's a copy of BAPE.


do you hate BAPE for copying NIKE?

When they first came out, I thought they could do well if they marketed themselves correctly, but everything they do gets worse and worse.

They never had an original idea, but this stuff is truly pathetic.

The lowest of the low.

Hmmm..... It is interesting to see the things some of you like and dislike.
I am 100% Nike head but I personally like some of Greedy Genius shoes and that apparel looks
pretty decent compared to some of the stuff I see people on here ranting and raving about.
I was also looking closely at the pics on the main page and it seems that all the print on the hoodie
is embroidered. I think that is a pretty nice touch that I haven't really seen much of before.

Diamond Supply Co. X Greedy Genius are working on a collaboration project
right now that is looking really nice. I pretty much took one of their existing shoes
and made it into a highly functional thin soled skate shoe with extra support and comfort.

I will be posting some pics on here for you guys to check out
within the next week or so when I get a sample.

thats hot shit diamond...

...and hate is def. the new love...amen to that...the internet has made everybody a critic tho...

just think about it, if it wasnt any internet then a lot of things that people say would never come out...they'd keep their opinion/comments to themselves cause noone else is interested in hearing that shit...but hey all u can do is deal with it...

...and greedy gns do your thang...I like their quality a lot...

If there were a million i love this and that threads you guys would bitch about that. So get over it its a forum.

Now the one thing i hate and i dont care who they are collaborating with even though i like Diamond. Is their so fucking tacky. I am speaking of the clothing. "I'm rich bitch!" wow ok rip off of Dave obviously but a late one. If this were done when he actually had a show still ok but now it is overdone and just dumb.

As is the other quote. That is my main problem the quotes dumb. The only piece i like is the all over hoody cus its embroided on. And i have one of their root of all evil tees i like that tee aswell.

About their shoes im not a fan just cus they arent appealing only one was the blue ones they had and they are too pricey. But hey hope they do well.

Well then you must know the guys. That always changes things. None of the big retail guys ever believed in them or that they would sell though. Look at their accounts, its a joke.

If they spend half the time they spend typing out how limited the kicks were and focus on getting some more solid designs, then they could market themselves.

Its like Triumvir shoes or something.

At least Creative Rec pushes an alternative style. Until you have rappers rapping about GG, they aren't going to sell.

I feel like the line is just complementing their main product,sneakers. Im not too sure how serious the Greedy Genius crew are taking this clothing line but I think it is just a line to go with the sneakers, not to be the king of apparrell. Sneaker wise they handle their buisness because thats what they they fuck with.. mothfuckin quality sneakers.

Its like saying Nike clothing is shit because their design (the swoosh) is wack and their "just do it" quote isnt the most creative quote ever.

Does anybody agree with me or am I being a dumbass lol

"I AM THE KING OF SNEAKERS" is not even a matter of creativity. it's tacky and reminds me of something a high school kid would wear to boost his ego

they had potential, then they fell in a ditch... In early interviews they said that they were going to be reasonable priced... and if they were expensive there would be substantial reasons as to why they are so expensive.... well they are very expensive, and i see no reasons why...

I do like the 3M reflective shoes they made... though i havnt seen em in person, it seems like a cool idea. But they just cost so damn much..

Whatev we will se what happens, but im not gonna hate cuz they use the AF1 design, cuz bape did it first... and they didnt get nearly as much shit for it as GN$ is getting.

because people are dumb and as soon as they see high price + limited availability they think it's the greatest, hottest shit on the planet. I pray to god that other people on here look on the HB main page on any given day and see all the crap that gets churned out. it's all so goddamn trite and poorly disguised, and I'm going to cut myself if I hear another person say how greedy genius (or any of those similar bandwagon brands) is innovating and keeping it "fresh", or that if I want to bitch I should get off my ass and make my own shitty clothes. these companies are playing off the fact that people will always want what they cannot get.

OH and stop hating on haters. we are entitled to our opinions. would you feel the same way if I made a thread stating how great ________ brand is and how much I would like to lick the fleshy asshole of its creator? bottom line: greedy genius was wack when it came out; I had this deep anger within me that said that they are trying waaaay too hard to push disgusting shoes and simply taking advantage of kids with no taste and disposable incomes. and it shall forever remain wack until it fades into obscurity (hopefully soon)

The most adorable thing about the throngs of haters is the way they catch hard on feelings when people call them out but yet they feel its ok for them to say what ever they want. Well...you can...you can diss every single brand and you can give a blow job to every brand...either way people need to keep it in perspective. Your not the internet black panthers making posst about your rights nor are your words the end all be all or the ultimate authority. Its angry words pounded on a keyboard by a kid at his home on his underwear alternating between hypebeast and a porn site. Now, be my guest and continue with the hating...and jacking off.
