There aint never been a Gucci sneaker that had that sort of following. That is why the Sean Carter Reebok copied it almost identically. People have been fein'ing for this shoe for decades.
Just because they were super popular doesn't mean that they looked good. Skin tight jeans are popular, but they definitely don't look good. I'm not bashing anyone who likes them, I personally just don't like them, and it's ok for me to not like something that someone else likes, and ok for somebody to not like something that I like. My problem is when people come in here and say that somebody else wears "goofy" Gucci sneakers, but the Gucci sneakers that you feel aren't goofy should be praised by everyone.
