Top 5 Most Overrated Sneakers of 2017

It’s that time again.

While everyone is busy publishing their “Best of 2017” list, I’m here to address what everyone is thinking but no one is saying: the most overrated drops of 2017.

The word “overrated” does NOT mean trash or wack, but for whatever reason that’s how some people take it. It’s an offensive word, but shouldn’t be. Imagine cooking for your coworkers and someone saying, “The food was good, but after hearing about your culinary skills for so long, I gotta admit your cooking is overrated.”

We all would probably be offended, but it’s an honest opinion.

But hey, I’m not here to school you on the word when you can simply Google the definition. If you own something that made this list you either really like it or bought into the hype. For the record, there’s nothing wrong with either option. Do you, baby blue.

But I still have to talk about 2017’s Top 5 most overrated sneakers.

Read and share your thoughts in the comments whether you agree or disagree.

Top 5 Most Overrated Sneakers of 2017

Balenciaga Triple S

WYD FAM? That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I see someone wearing this shoe. Fashion, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder but we are supposed to get our eyes checked once a year. I just wanted to add some context so I can paint the larrrrge picture for my young queens and kings.

This shoe… this shoe right here, it has to be some type of prank on fashion, right? In my mind, I imagine a Balenciaga meeting with vision boards all around filled with pictures of Instagram fashion killas. One of the designers says, “I bet we can design the ugliest shoe and people will buy it because of our name.” Meeting dude gets the green light and here we are.

That’s how it played out in my mind. One big troll on people who are willing to wear ANYTHING because it’s popular/limited or expensive. I’m aware of the current dad shoe trend, but not even a swaggless dad would think twice about wearing these because he’s not impressed by popular opinion.

This is the ONLY shoe that made the list that I don’t mind calling ugly AND overrated. “That’s just how I feel”, word to GKMC track number 5. Buuuut, if you dropped $700+ on a pair and feel confident when you look in the mirror, that’s the only thing that matters.
