Step Your Shoe Game Up!
By Khalil Amani
So I was in Miami this past weekend (thus, the lack of blogs written) and was livin’ li vida loca.
I ate some authentic Cuban food—black beans & rice, plantain chips, Red Snapper and some other good stuff. I also went to this fabulous club called “M-1”, which was crazy-stupid-hyped! Thanks to my best friend David, whose nephew is an international model, who models for the club owner’s company, we got in free and sat in V.I.P. I saw some of the world’s most beautiful women (and men).
Miami is my city! I grew up there and attended powerhouse Miami-Carol City Senior High School, home of Flo-Rida, Rick Ross and Pretty Ricky. Miami has style and is deeply entrenched in the hip-hop world—and the fashion world, which brings me to the point of this blog.
Fashion. In particular, the shoe game. It has been brought to my attention (thanks son!) that all your Nike
sneakers are passé
—whack—and so 2009. What’s in? Exclusive shoes. That’s right! Sneaker/designer shoes that scream, “What the fuck are you wearing?”
It ain’t about the Nike Swoosh logo if you’re trying to wear a sneaker that’s club-ready and funky-fresh. Your shoe-game should be about individuality, exclusivity, and swagger like no other.
The tennis shoe, which is club chic, is called “Cadillac”
(as in the car). Cadillac sneakers are off-the-chain fresh. My son made me cop a pair of all-black Cadillac sneakers with the patent leather trim. Sick! And they aren’t that expensive. About $80.00. I don’t think anyone in Denver has a pair. I am the sole owner of a sick pair of Cadillac sneakers! I bask in that. Lol!
Also, I copped a pair of designer Gucci
sneakers that are waaaaaay
too stylish for an old man, but I had to have them. I won’t even mention the price. Just know that you gotta have your money right to get them.
So all of you Nike-wearing people—save them shits for the playground. If you wanna rock a pair of sneakers to the club, get you some shit that people either respect (like a Gucci or Louis Vuitton sneaker) or a sneaker that is an exclusive shoe that no one can clock you wearing. Step your shoe game up! Don't let an old man stunt on you! Check out my sneakers.
