5. You learn that "more expensive" doesn't always mean "better."
The newest and most pricey isn't always the best. Take for example, the Roshe Run. While Nike Stans and hypebeasts were losing their minds over Flyknits and Yeezy 2s, the Roshe Run became the sleeper sneaker of 2012. A genius combination of affordability, comfort, and simplicity, it was the sneaker that proved "less is more" in many ways. So even though Kanye West's A.P.C. jeans sold out instantly—there are plenty of other jeans out there that cost much less, and are even made better.
