I found this video on Facebook and I wanted to share it with you because it touched my soul. It's a young boy explaining how he was made fun of for wearing shoes that weren't the "cool" shoes to wear. But he didn't care because he liked his shoes. It really blew my mind.
When I was younger I wore VANS slip on shoes every day. I owned every color and every style you could think of, and I didn't care what everyone else was wearing because that's what I liked. That's what I thought was cool. I thought it was really corny that all these girls wore skater shoes, or converse high tops, and they knew nothing about skating or punk/ska music. They just wore them because everyone else did. I never wanted to be fake. And I wasn't going to wear something I didn't like just because that's what the "cool kids" wore. I wore VANS and jeans and band tees every day.
Anyway check out this video...
