10 Things Being a Sneakerhead Teaches You About Style

8. You nerd about about small design details.

You know what's one of the coolest things about the Jordan V? The sharp details on the sole reminiscent of shark teeth. Dedicated sneakerheads know that designer Tinker Hatfield gleaned that detail off of the P-51 Mustang fighter planes from WWII, and like the sneakers much more for it. Nerding out like that will only bring you further down the rabbit hole. You'll like jeans because of the selvedge denim made on antique looms in Okayama, Japan. Hidden pockets and buttons on jackets will pleasantly surprise you. T-shirts made out of Egyptian cotton will be the softest things you've ever put on, and you'll be willing to spend a little more to upgrade from your basic cotton ones.
