The Grand Paradox of /fa/:
meme shoes means "I've got it before, worn it, now everyone else wears it so I was bored of it and moved to something else" but on /fa/ it means "I want to have these but I don't have enough money so let me call this grape sour and these shoes a meme".
But that is not true.
The meme status of an article of clothing can come from one of two things.
1. An overplayed article of clothing that everyone and their mother owns and therefore makes you look like you can't think for yourself and are trying to fit in if you wear it.
Examples: red flannel shirts, Converse and Stan Smiths.
2. An article of clothing that is so hyped up in the online community, that wearing it makes you look like you can't think for yourself and are trying to fit in with the online community.
Examples: Geo Baskets, Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures t-shirts and CDGxConverse.
The second definition on meme status only applies to online communities and articles of clothing that fit in this category will not be considered memes outside of those online communities i.e. the real world.
Note: Just because something is a meme doesn't mean something is bad, quite contrary actually, it just means it is popular, and mostly for a good reason, and you might get associated with mindless trend followers.
I wouldn't even say ridicule, it just has the bad "dressed by the internet" stigma. People still can pull off those items and /fa/ wouldn't give you shit for wearing Geo Baskets if they compliment your fit. /fa/ will however give you shit for wearing Geo Baskets with a regular fit that makes them stick out like a sore thumb or with a fit that everyone else wears them with.
The biggest problem with "memes" is, that fashion is about expressing yourself and finding your own style, so wearing the item everyone wears or hypes can be kinda problematic, because it doesn't make you stand out as an individual but rather blend in with a group.
>how are they meme shoes exactly would you care to explain? They were in fashion which is something you probably lack
>"dressed by the internet" stigma.
you autistic manchildren aren't self aware enough to realise that simple fact. And that's why you're all cringeworthy internet meme faggots
