With the sheer volume of shoes out there in the market right now, you don’t need to be Martha Stewart to coordinate your outfit. To borrow terminology coined by Dante Ross, the whole ‘fallen into a bag of Skittles’ look has reached its end. Walking around like you’ve just rimmed the rainbow isn’t going to score any points from anyone – and that includes homosexuals, metrosexuals, fauxmosexuals, pumasexuals or even iced-out thugs. A while back I used to work for one of the first online sneaker sites called Crooked Tongues. One of the first editorials I wrote was called ‘Methods Of Colour Maintenance’. It was basically a tongue-in-cheek worksheet on how to take your sneaker and apparel colour matching to the next level. We didn’t realise at the time that my stupidity would register with so many other people out there.
You’d have hoped that I would have matured as a writer perhaps, but sadly not. It’s for this reason that I felt it was time to drop an updated version of the article exclusively for Sneaker Freaker.
This is a how-to-guide, so for that wholesome old-school feeling, I’m taking it back to bulletpoints! Pay attention at the back, Bueller...
