It’s Friday. For you office warriors, that means you’re most likely sitting at your desk with one eye on the weekend. For those of you in the retail or service industry, it means you’re most likely gearing up for a crazy evening.
Whatever you may be doing this weekend, I’m here with a PSA for you for the weekend and beyond, and it’s easier than it sounds: WEAR YOUR KICKS!!
You might already be shaking your head. “What’s he talking about?” you’re thinking. “My (insert rare sneakers) are worth (insert large sum of money). Well that’s fine and dandy. But ask yourself a question. Did you buy your shoes to collect, rock or a bit of both? If it’s either the second or the third answer, read on. If it’s the first answer…..well go ahead and read on anyway.
You gotta wear your shoes. I know it’s hard when that first crease snakes across the toebox of your Jordan I’s, or that heel drag starts to become apparent on your SB’s, but that’s what gives your shoes character and makes them unique. Plus, here’s something to consider. You have a crazy collection of awesome shoes, but how’s anyone ever going to know that unless you rock ’em? And no, putting them on for an Instagram picture doesn’t count. Wear them out and around.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you should beat up your nicest shoes, especially right now when it’s cooler (colder really) than a polar bear’s toenails, word to Outkast. I’m just saying that you should let all the awesome shoes that you have see the light of day, even if it’s just once in a while. Believe me, I know it’s hard to get over that initial fear. But when you do, you won’t regret it. Plus, you might even break a few necks. Who doesn’t want to do that? So just wear your kicks. You’ll be glad you did.
