Street Style: Of Crisp Shirts and Bright Shoes
I had just finished an animated conversation about shoes when i noticed Praveen . There was his bright green and yellow shoes staring right at me from across the table. I normally don’t come across a lot of guys who are comfortable wearing colors and pulling it off pretty well . I’ve always wondered what stories do shoes tell. Is there a way of telling your thought for the day/mood based on the shoes .Basically trying to dish out a Cinderella story lost in the mundane-ness of everyday life
This is exactly what i asked Praveen , i went up to him and narrated a whole paragraph trying to act all intellectual and as somebody who was trying to figure out the complexity behind SHOES. I had been planning on writing a series about shoes where i try to figure out what someone’s up to based on Footwear and if it meant something in the context of that particular day also if there is a story behind picking out a particular pair of shoes before heading out .
I was expecting an equally long paragraph as an answer but He had the most simplest explanation, his brother wore the shoes he was planning on wearing hence he decided to wear his Puma also because he likes the bright colors in them (Extremely Impressive)
While in the middle of a conversation ( very patiently answered all my questions ) discovered that he is a professional model/actor also, was one of the contestants on Truth Love Cash on Channel V , lent his face to a lot of commercials (Namely Appy Fizz , Vysya Bank,frooti, KFC ,Phillips and a lot more) And has acted in the movie “Lets Kill Gandhi ” .
He had just got back to Bangalore after some grilling work . Also he had attended a couple of meetings and auditions earlier that day so he thought the bright colors would make up for the drained out energy .(Brilliant isn’t it) , this explained his shoes for me ,though it wasn’t a conscious decision the shoes so clearly reflected his state of mind for the day.
Is there a story behind yours ?
This was one of my first street style photo-shoot and was so much fun ,thanks to Praveen for being such a sport .
