The 4 Worst Sneaker Collabs of 2017
Does "Made in Italy" Really Matter?
2017, a year of lofty highs and abysmal lows for the sneaker game. While some models this year went above and beyond to showcase the shared vision between cultural luminaries, just as many ended up being underwhelming and underdesigned models defecated onto the market without concern for taste or style. Without further ado, here are my four worst collaborations of 2017.
Made in Italy. Just the mere mention of those three little words is enough to conjure images of immaculate sewing, luxurious fabrics, and cutting-edge fits. Garments that carry this tag are instantly elevated to a higher standard of quality then those offered s by the ateliers of Europe or the clothing producers of developing countries located throughout the world. Savvy marketing campaigns have convinced the general public that a garment made in Italy is inherently superior to those produced in other nations. However, the reality of this belief could not be farther from the truth.
