How Did You Get Into Streetwear?

Mar 02, 2009 @ 10:04
I was into the basketball scene from a young age, everything from the jerseys to the kicks. One day my grade 12 art teacher noticed that I had a lot of different kicks, and asked if I had ever been to Goodfoot before (local boutique). There, I was introduced to the whole culture. Numerous trips to Hong Kong also helped open my eyes up to a lot more streetwear brands and styles.

A single shoe:
The 30th anniversary Star Wars Adidas Superstar.

I was a huge star wars fan, and after buying the superstar I started looking into sneakers. Bought a few pair, got into clothes. And now I am pretty much obsessed with sneakers, clothes and fashion in general.

It is actually quite funny to see how much my style has evolved in just over a year tongueface Cant wait to see what happens with my style in the future.

I got into streetwear through looking at skating brands then finding out about obey then lrg then stussy and then it just went on. Now I look at 4 blogs daily and support Attic I to the fullest.

The things that brought me into streetwear was music and shoes.

I saw Jay-Z wearing a bape jacket in the interview he did with Nas when he signed him and googled bape. A lot of my friends wore diamond too and i started buying diamond and when the diamond store opened on fairfax i found the hundreds and the other stuff on that street.

i always hated malls because everyone would practically have the same shit. i would always like the "exclusiveness" of things. when i started skating i would flip through the catalog in the early days of CCS i would buy shirts from there because they had different shirts. i would also shop phone order in the early days of Eastbay to get something a little different.


then this place opened up called FTK where i live and they had different shit so then i just got introduced to alot of different brands. FTKs inventory is weak compared to other sites though.

eventually it led to me looking online to know more about these brands, i saw at the store, then i started getting frustrated when things would get sold out so i started searching lookbooks to get a headstart on things (found a few sites which i still stick to this day), one thing led to another, stumbled across hypebeast and a few years back made an account and what not.


but yah that is how it got started for me.

damn looking back at my post

that shit is long..lol
Mar 13, 2009 @ 03:25
needed shit to wear on the street

being into sneakers led to being into streetwear. now it seems like both cultures are almost the same. i dont see any streetwear heads that dont love their sneakers just as much.
Mar 15, 2009 @ 23:09
i started with the dunks... exclusive dunks... shoes from places where no one can get them... then got into expensive brands...

lol, your right. fixed

the thing was, when i was finished writing it i had copied it all (just in case it made me log back in), so i go to hit submit and what does it do, it said i wasn't logged in, so luckily i copied it so i had to re-log in and i must have pasted it twice.

Like 2 years ago I saw a comedy video on youtube about a hypebeast addict.
All the people were fairly stylish, so I figured hey why not look it up
been on the site ever since, somehow I never knew there was a forum until
about 2 months ago. weirdd aint it?
Aug 17, 2009 @ 23:02
Not too into kicks as I am cloth, but the answer would be hip hop and my surroundings.
Aug 17, 2009 @ 23:16
started with the sneakers and from that got into street wear. no one in my town had real street wear so i learned a lot through music and internet
Aug 18, 2009 @ 06:57
slow transistion from a basketball player getting jordans/bball shoes in 8th grade(03) then got into other kicks like lacoste/puma then i trailed off to higher end fashion brands like hugoboss a|x etc then like 2-3 years ago my buddy showed me that medusa crewneck and i becme an addict..but hiphop has alwys been around me now iam into to streetwear but still keeping that baller style
Aug 18, 2009 @ 07:15
i just started getting into it recently
a little over a year maybe

never had enough money to buy anything nice but still look at things i plan on getting

i discovered hb back in december and didnt even know it had a forum
Aug 18, 2009 @ 07:42
I found it seductive, fell for it, but cheated on it several times.
Aug 18, 2009 @ 14:41
got back into skating about a year ago and had money so I could actually cop clothes, started getting into dunks and that lead me here. Not into dunks or really any nike anymore though...
Aug 18, 2009 @ 14:48
I like nike a lot, so a few years, nike shoes became streetwear and guess who saw it? yeah, me. also when I got into denim jeans and was searching for some good brands, and came across evisu/etc.
