Become a Tastemaker
Nothing says cool the way proclaiming yourself to be a "tastemaker" or "influencer" does. And who's gonna tell you that you're not one? It's not like there's a test. And your favorite brands love it as well, so much so that they send you free sneakers! No really, step up your douchebag game, build up your social media following, act entitled, and all the kids will look up to you for getting free stuff.
