Yes, The Stereotypes, There Must Be More To Life
So said the lyric from the famous Blur song back in 1994. They weren’t everyone’s cup of tea back then, and judging by the way social media blew up when the performed at the BRIT Awards a couple of months ago, that remains the case. While they may remain everyone’s idea of dirty students from Colchester, in that one lyric, they had a point.
How easy is it to judge someone by the shoes that they wear? If you were presented with a pair of feet, stay with me here, wearing a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, what would you think? You would probably immediately think “celebrity.” Change that to a pair of Reebok Classics and we would likely go to the other end of the scale and come up with the much loved “chav” label.
There are certain brands which, in the modern era and following the evolving patterns of the fashion industry, have been able to break down these barriers and attitudes, and truly transcend fashion genres, lifestyles and class boundaries. Creative Recreation are probably the global leaders when it comes to this particular trend.
A Shoe For Everyone
Unlike Cinderella’s glass slipper, there is something for everyone in the Creative Recreation footwear range. Although predominantly a brand aimed at urban styles, Creative Recreation have fully recognised and embraced the opportunities available through the merging of many styles, and have integrated new styles into their ranges to take advantage of this.
For the urban hip hop dresser, there are high top boots or chunky, aggressive trainers to be paired up with an oversize suit and snap back hat. Their black and darker brown lines can even be worn for more formal settings. If your boss will turn a blind eye to you not wearing shoes as long as the footwear is black, then creative recreation may well be a choice ready for you to embrace.
Creative recreation even produce a high quality trainer, which can be worn either casually or for sporting purposes. Available in a simple plain white, they can form an excellent finishing touch to any outfit, whether you dress in an urban, preppy or indie style.
One other major market which creative recreation exploit is that of the skater. There are many skate type shoes in their range, however such is their quality that again, they can and will be worn and adapted to many styles by a lot of demographics.
