The cutthroat world of sneaker collecting—long the domain of obsessive manchildren and their boy spawn—has spread into a new market far removed from the dark corners of shoe conventions. Meet the lady sneakerheads of Instagram. Sneakerheads of the fairer sex instead primarily confine their footwear worship to digital showrooms, especially Instagram.
Being a father of two girls was a never a difficult thing for me as a sneakerhead. Including them in my sneaker hobby was just natural. That all changed when one of my daughters reached high school. Take for example in , when I picked up a pair of Air Jordan 11s for my oldest daughter as a Christmas gift and had to immediately give her a warning about making sure she was careful when she was wearing them. But it also frustrates me that the same attitude of those kids will follow her into adulthood. Eventually the world and the sneaker culture that I am a part of will pass me by, as my children and their peers will take over as the next generation of sneakerheads. I just want to make sure that culture is in a better place than it is now. Female sneakerheads of all ages still deal with the stigma that them wearing sneakers and participating in the culture that surrounds it is counter to who they really should be. As you can see from the images below, the results are quite different.
What's it like to raise a daughter who's into sneakers?
If you can't do that, realizing that your partner may never come around to your side of things, you are not ready to marry this person. Living in an interfaith, marriage can be hell. Love the way you normalize the challenges of being married. Weirdly, one of the best sexes I ever had was with a lesbian who felt remorse and as though she had betrayed her fellow lesbians. Thanks for pointing this stuff out. She's really attractive, too. If not, it's better to find out now than to continue with something that isn't satisfying you. Never ask vague questions and give her definite options instead.
I married someone that wasn't of my faith and it worked great. I agree she should be able to watch a movie or do her own research. Marriage is serious business and we are in it together despite our spouses shortcomings. Mormonism is an all-in religion.
