And the high end brands are supposed to be the innovators and trend setters, yeah right.
You keep saying this when you know damn well it isn't correct.
Who said these high-end brands are suppose to be innovators anyways? Most designers create from inspirations and fashion is a constant wheel that just goes around and around and trends simply returns and evolves.
To me, Nike, Asics, Adidas, etc... are the ones who are suppose to be innovators with their techs and materials simply because they are performance shoes. The shoes posted here are mainly for walking, hell in Cali, you really drive about 95% of the time and that is why my shoes doesn't get destroyed much.
High-end designers can create and alter existing designs to their liking and according to their vision and if that vision leads them to an original design, then so be it.
You think these designers even come up with these sneaker designs themselves?
These guys have other designers and the head designers like Tisci, Wang, Raf, etc... just approves them. This isn't always the case but this is true for majority of the brands. I could see Rick actually designing his shoes from start to end but others, they just give an approval on which are sold to the public.
Stop making up rules.
