Too 'couple-y'?

    Hi kids!

    Since you're all fashion gurus on this board... I thought I'd ask your guys advice.

    I just bought a new pair of kicks and am very pleased with my purchase. They are brand new, black & grey suede Nike Dunks and they look hella fly. The only problem is... my girlfriend has a pair of Nike Dunks. They're her favorite shoes and she wears them a lot... hers are white & maroon though, so they aren't the EXACT same shoe (that would definitely be too couple-y). So here's the question...

    Is owning the same type of shoe, and going out together with the same type of shoe on... too couple-y? If you saw us on the street would you be all 'ugh. get out of high school you losers'? Or would you notice?

    the opposite... if someone said that i'd tell them they need to get out of high school.

    now, if ya had on the same exact outfit and same exact sneakers, that'd be a bit different

    I had "couple-y" shoes, and I mean the EXACT same kind, with someone who I was not going out with. She always wanted us to have matchign outfits. We had several matching FCUK and Ralph Lauren shirts. Also, I was told I had to buy Energie jeans because that is what she wears.

    What does this prove? Well if you think you are a loser for being "couple-y" while you are a couple, I guess I am even one rung lower on the ladder for dressing "couple-y" in a non couple relationship.

    Cheers ... Ian :)

    The real question here is "How do YOU feel about it?"

    If you both wear your Dunks and realize that you feel silly-looking, than make your decision based on that. If you feel okay about it, think it's fun, or you simply might enjoy being "coupley" like that, then do it.

    i feel fine with it. that's why i bought 'em. i just hope she doesn't freak when i tell her (currently she is in Vancouver. coming home next week! hurray!)

    and yeah, I used to be anti-Nike too... but then I realized all clothing/companies are all the same. So if I'm going to buy stuff I like, I shouldn't pick on Nike [ignorant asshole] (especially when they have such fucking dope kicks!) [/ignorant asshole]

    I don't think with shoes its lame.

    As long as its not a full outfit or something like a jacket.

    have you guys considered doing a matching dance sequence to accompany your purchase?

    now that would be cute as fuck. :)

    it's ok as long as you wear the matching t-shirts: "I Like Blowing Bubbles" & "I'm Bubbles"

    basic & ev, I'm not seeing the significance of 'matching jackets'. what's the deal here? why no matching jackets?

    (my wife and I have matching jackets -- nearly time to break 'em out, too)

    lately i've been seeing couples comprised of:
    1 thugged out guy wearing a basketball jersey
    1 hoochie mama wearing the same jersey, but as a dress

    this needs to stop.

    i've been mocked :(


    Yes I would notice... yes I would laugh... and yes it's too couple-y.

    Why not post a pic of the shoes?

    He asked our opininons. I think it looks lame.

    Wear whatever the fuck you want though. For every person who digs a certain style there will be 10 that don't.

    I don't think there is anything wrong wearing matching shoes. It's kinda cute and really it's no big deal. But the matching jackets I dunno...lol

    but they're *matching* *jackets*... i mean, come on... if trucker hats are phashunkool, how far off can *matching* *jackets* be?

    to be fair, they don't quite match -- mine's slightly more weather-beaten than hers. oh, and the breast pocket on her's is on the opposite side of mine.
