I have a class project where I have to define sneaker head...

Nov 30, 2007 @ 10:13
Its a two word logo design project on something that represents a generation or a subculture (ie, saggin pants, graffiti artist, spoiled brat) but my professor wants us to type a couple paragraphs defining our logo.

I just wanted to post the paragraphs on "sneaker head" here so maybe I can get further incite. I just need help trying to simplify it to a man in his early 60's.

here's what I got so far....

Sneaker Head

You might want to change the sentence where you say that "sneakerheads" collect limited sneakers and retros. I collect vans... not even the limited.. I like to buy shoes... am I not considered a "sneakerhead."

yeah you dont actually have to have a lot or rare sneakers to be a sneakerhead, as long as youre really knowledgable and think about shoes all the damn time. thats my opinion.

Yeah I am fully aware of that, but knowing my professor he would give me the "well I guess everyone is a sneaker head routine" so I would prefer to keep that the way it is.

I appreciate everyones incite, I have the just for kicks dvd but its at home, not on campus so I am bonned lol.
