It's oversaturated. People don't really LOVE the game of sneakers. They like what's popular and it's all about quantity.

What Has Changed About Sneakers In The Last 5/10/20 Years To You?:

They lack creativity in design, or maybe it's too much creativity to where some shoes are an eyesore. The companies are trying to be as far out as possible, and some shoes/colorways are TRASH!

What Would You Like To See Change In The Future?:

Classic designs. Risks, but well thought-out risks. Collaborations. Exclusives that are just a tad bit more accessible (oxymoron, I know).
