Another popular fad was sneakers. Everyone had the newest nikes or the newest jordans. At one point, it felt like the whole school wore the same pair of red, black and white nikes. It didn't stop at sneakers either. If your sneakers had 3 colors in them, you had to wear something with all 3 colors in your outfit. Sometimes people wore orange, yellow and red, just to match with their sneakers. I thought that was pointless too.
During the winter, the beef and brocoli (brown and green) timbs were in. I thought those timbs were the worst color combination. There were a lot of really nice timbs out at the time too like the blue and white ones or the red and white ones. Either way, chances were there would be tons of people wearing the same pair!
Although I had a few fresh pairs of sneakers, I stuck to the simple colors like black, white, blue or gray. Other than nikes and jordans, I loved my converse! They were so simple and they went with all the dark clothes I wore. I listened to a lot of rock music, so it was necessary to have band shirts and cargo pants to go with them.
Some of the music I listened to was Breaking Benjamin, 3 Doors Down, 30 Seconds to Mars and my favorite at the time, Avril Lavigne. In high school, no one really listened to what I listened to. The music that was most popular was rap music and music that had dance moves related to them. Overall, as time passed, I'm glad the fads passed too!
