Sneakers, don’t teenagers love to wear them? We all wear sneakers but why do we choose the brands we do? There are so many brands right now that are trending through the roof. We all know Nike and Adidas but do you know the huaraches , the Roshes, the Air Jordans, the Lebrons , the hare 7’s and I  can go on and on with the list.

According to North Star students interviewed for this story, we buy sneakers because other people wear them or because they appeal to a student’s taste.  We see people in school wearing new shoes or see them on a company’s app.

But what people don’t ask so often is why is Nike favored above all other? It is because Nike of its logos or because of famous people like Michael Jordan  advertising these sneakers?

One of my peers, Winifred, said in an interview “I really want to get  those Huraches , you seem so many people wearing them so you know that those must be the new popular thing.”

In another interview I conducted with Esther, she had an opinion that was different than the majority of people.She said, “well I do buy my shoes from Nike but I buy shoes that I like, I don’t follow anybody.”

Other than Esther, most people I interviewed claim to favor either footlocker or Kicks USA when choosing a retailer to buy shoes from. And, from what I have researched, it is less about their personal opinions on these brands and more about what is trending on social media.

We see that through the use of famous people that they convince the audience that the shoes do look good.  We end up desiring to buy the shoes.

We see the huaraches in the visual above and know that these are trending shoes now and many people are buying them.

 

Supposedly these are the new upcoming pair of shoes and, being honest, these shoes are ridiculous, but it’s the influence of certain people and their words how  convinces others to buy these shoes.
