Is that the gay dude they use to call "Rainbow" on Much Music? I don't watch MM enough to know for sure. If it's the guy then he is corny.

SMH @ you for associating SB with shoehead.
anyone can pop down to GDFT and cop SB nowadays, nothing shoehead about it. sorry if i offended anyone here, just what i think about this whole SB thing lately.

and i do agree with some of you about bandwagoners, but people gotta start somewhere right?
how do you label someone as shoehead anyways, everyone dub themselve as one nowadays. lets all enjoy it while it last :smile:
sorry for being off topic

back to Matt Babel, yea hes cool but he needs to stop talking about sneakers on MOD saying how he needs to top of his fit everyday with a fresh pair of sneakers.

exactly man, you guys don't realize dude is like a marketing tool, he gets some free stuff just because he is a visible guy on TV and such, doesn't make him a sneakerhead, it just means he's a dude with some good connects, i'm sure as soon as the mainstream decides sneakers ain't cool no more and everbody starts wearing whatever else is hot, most of these hangers on will be out with the quickness.
And now back to business

Dude gets all the stuff he does because he's on TV and basically it's free marketing for the brands and stores of the clothes that he is wearing and reppin'...

Doesn't mean he's a true head in terms of sneakers and fashion...

Either way, in the end does it really bother you guys that much? Do you and let others do what they do...in the end only you can judge yourself, and if Matt Babel is cool with it and can live with it at the end of the day, ya'll should just leave him be.

I'll just be glad when all this sneaker and fashion hype falls back from the mainstream and we can go on about our ways as we did before.

The only this that is real annoying is having people approach you and ask if you shop at Goodfoot or Lileo or OTR or TNT or [insert chic urban store here] and start small talk about kicks or clothing to seem down...you don't need to talk about these things to seem cool or be my friend...

I'm more interested in befriending cats who are genuine and sincere, not those who can name drop some brands and nicknames and save all their money to blow on kicks and jeans.

Since this is going this way...

I know most of the older guys dislike the fact that the game is at an all time high and that when you guys run into younger/bandwagon-er look like cats on the streets all fronting it brings a bad name, leaving you shaking your head. From what I understand now, some are selling off their coveted pairs and claim they are "getting out of the game." My question is, does it not then defeat the purpose of loving shoes to begin with or was it all for show? Would you not just want to continue to collect and step your game up, evolve and push things to another level or are hoping to abandon the game and find something new and realize, you discovered a new passion for something else? Don't get me wrong, I understand some viewpoints of the older guys and I'm looking for some more clairification, that's all. Some are waiting for the day the culture moves on from its mainstream days. I'm just curious as to who will stick around and continue to read on the NT pages.

a lot of you make some really good points and i completely agree with you..

these people you see on TV: hosts, actors, celebs, all have stylists. it's a stylist's job to research the market and see whats "hype" so their clients are looking fresh.

also, like mentioned before, these guys get this stuff for free anyway because they are being used as free advertising and marketing.

2 years ago, matt babel was probably wearin g-units..
