    Buy shoes or clothes because they are hot or has a lot of Hype so they can wear and flaunt it, even though they are really just lames.

    Buying hot/trendy clothes & shoes to get likes on FB/Instagram because they can't dress themselves.

    People that try to be different by purchasing trendy, typically expensive items.

    Kids born after 1990 never seen Jordan play and fiend for his shoes.

    I find it HILARIOUS that Niketalkers call anyone else HyperBeasts since HypeBeasting is essentially the foundation of the majority of folks here but..........

    Being a hypebeast for 15 years doesn't make you NOT a hypebeast. You are just an experienced hypebest.

    To me a hypebeast is simple someone who jumps on bandwagons. Like when LeBron took his talents to south beach, and EVERYBODY wants to say they like the heat. Welp.

    The Yonkers fans. Those dudes that claim they love odd future then all they have heard was. Yonkers :lol:

    Dudes who buy shoes because they are cool and expensive. Not because they like them

    All types of things like that.



    Experienced hypebeast. :lol:

    So owning beats makes you a hypebeast now huh? >D

    I feel as if you take your style straight from the internet or go out of your way to wear what celebrities wear. Thats my definition. Be original, wear whatever you feel comfortable in, don't just jock the next man.

    I find Hypebeast to be a subjective term and I wanted to hear the opinions of the niketalk community
