In case you’re new to the fashion trend bandwagon, the creepers trend train has definitely taken off for 2012! These flatform shoes, reminiscent of the 90’s platform trend, are back and they’re even bigger than ever. You would think that with these edgy shoes appearing in Prada Runaway Shows, and creating a demand that resulted in a waitlist for the shoe that they’d be more accepted off the runway. And maybe they are in fashion forward states like New York where these trends are an everyday thing, but when I brought this trend to Huntsville they definitely made people stop and stare.
Whenever I wear my creepers to campus I definitely get some looks. Some people smile and give the universal nod of approval, while others take different route and stare right before giving me the stink eye. Not that I care, I love my chunky 90’s shoes. They really take me back to my angsty 8th grade years without the full blown commitment of a black on black ensemble.
I suppose Texas is just one of those states where “trends” just don’t really catch on. I guess this is to be expected considering that Texas is a Bible Belt state. It’s not common for people to go against the grain and as we would like to believe that we are individuals; when you look around the people are pretty homogenous. It’s hard to find individuality on this campus, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. It’s up to us as individuals to break the mold and try something different. Go ahead and try a new trend, you might find that you like it.
