                                    I've been watching this on rewind, this year in sneakers was motivational I'm glad that the Breads made it up there and the Jordan 1's I feel like this year had a lot of women sneakers.

                                                Travis Scott 1’s low or high was a crazy collaboration. Yet everyone wanted them on their feet some how.... Top 3 tho... Sacai was a zoo but side by side with the Travis Scott. Tough debate

It started late 2k17, maybe perfected in 2k18, and now jammed everyones throat and flooded the market in 2k19. Wack rap artists rehashing songs, putting twists on them to become famous and now doing it in the shoe game by being the first one to deconstruct a silhouette and be backed by a brand cause that's all that's needed to get the train going and everyone and they mamas bots gonna be gettin their tickets. That's the only reason i respect Kanye and the yeezy line and that means a lot coming from me cause i'm not a fan of the man's music much.

Wasn't a big fan to begin with but had to give my respects. When he brushed Yachty off, "im old it's alright". Pretty rude and disrespectful. I'm old school and just big on respect.
