The Dilemma

Waddup, world! Welcome to the inaugural post of the urban side of Society Chic. I come to you with loads of enthusiasm and nervousness about the first posting. I guess you can say “me siento muy excited.” I digress, so let’s jump right in.

Being somewhat of a ‘sneakerhead’, I’ve come across a dilemma that many of us share. What kicks are considered “Club/Lounge worthy?” For the most part, the more “Bouji” the club, the less likely you will be able to get in with sneakers. Maybe it doesn’t help that you’re trying to get in with Air Force Ones that look like they’ve been around since the 1980s, but if you are willing to compromise, I’m pretty sure you’ll be happy with the alternatives.. And also not look like you’re about to step into church.

First up, I thought I’d incorporate something that’s a bit more casual, but still has the soul/sole of a sneaker. The Vans Versa Carbon/Gum Colorway is a really clean shoe, with a timeless upper, simple paneling, and interesting details. Choosing a Darker color scheme and gum sole gives the impression of a Dress shoe. Though, the Versa is a skate shoe, ‘sneakerheads’ can feel free to wear the kicks at the skate park and then at the night spot afterward, although I would recommend dusting them off before you do.

Moving right along, finding integration between the two, just might be the combination you’re looking for. A classic Converse never seizes to amaze me (with innovation on a retro design). The All-star classic boot is a fine example of that tougher canvas then the original (available in chocolate or black). Not to mention, moccasin style toe and rounded heavy-duty laces that give the look of a “high end” boot with the feel of the “old school” Chuck Taylor

At last (and certainly not least), we find ourselves in the midst of one of the best sneaker brands ever.. The Nike Jordan sneaker collection. Now, the likelihood of you being able to rock any of the Air Jordan series, is pretty slim. Jordan has some causal counterparts to their infamous basketball line. In comes the Jordan Grown Series. One of my favorites, in the series, is the V.5 Low. Available in a variety of colors and materials, this shoe has clean lace, an up-front closure, mesh material, and Padded tongue with logo. Great for the ‘sneakerhead’ in all of us, but still passable as a mature casual sneaker.


Well.. There you have it, Chicheads! I hope your first time was as good for you as it was for me. I hope my posts help you out when suiting up for any nightly escapades. A key thing to remember: Everyplace is different regarding dress code. So, do the smart thing and choose wisely. If all else fails, you can always bring a spair set of shoes. My advice though… Call Ahead!

Dope is as dope does…
