Whether you call them sneakers, trainers, kicks or stomps there’s no getting around the fact that the most lit shoe designs go way beyond functionality. The colors and the crazy prints help create their special look and feel. But in the end it’s all about the vibe and how it speaks to you. Some prints on shoes can be artistic and others can be seen as just playful.
We’ve decided to break it down so you can decide which ones really speak to your style because in the end that distinction matters.
Blood Splattered High Top Shoe: ARTISTIC
These kicks are artsy with an edge. The white high tops have a blood splattered print on the sides that don’t seem playful as much as they are dark. And when it comes down to it, isn’t eddy and artistic the same thing? This design has a specific meaning and symbolism behind it that scream “it’s not a phase.” The way the dark toes on the white high top shoes clashes with the red blood print on the side brings out a angsty attitude that any indie kid or artist would be thrilled to rock.

Nebula High Top Shoe: ARTISTIC
This crazy shoe print is literally out of this world! The design on the side is a dark nebula with purple hues. The mood can be described as glum but chill. In the end it really depends on how space makes you feel which makes us describe it as artistic. The nebula and relaxing colors give off a soothing vibe that’s not exactly playful. Either way, they’re artistic and that’s cool.
OREO HIGH TOP SHOW: BOTH
