Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor’s Rant Got You? Check These 5 Affordable Indian Brands For Sneaker Heads

Sneakers have made an impactful impression on the face of fashion and pop culture. With sneaker heads keeping a count of their favourite designs, the industry in no time is soaring high in demand. But damn, the price on these pair of shoes is higher than we can ever imagine. In the price of one sneaker, I could feed myself multiple meals at a fancy place, and buy less cheaper shoes in abundance. Wait, but celebrities don’t care about the tag right? At least, that’s what we get from actor and Anil Kapoor’s son–Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor. In recent set of Instagram stories, Kapoor expressed his thoughts over people wearing fake copies of popular sneaker brands.

He went on to say–“Don’t know who needs to hear this but please stop wearing fake sneakers… if you have a low/moderate budget there’s plenty of great options out there. Converse vans basic air force etc… if someone gets you a gift and they happen to be inauthentic you can pass them onto someone else that doesn’t know what they are and would be happy to wear…”And while Harsh’s ideas were not to be taken in bad taste, and tagged as “privileged,” many people found it offensive and called him out. Netizens called the actor out for his opinions and asked him to sit down and think before speaking. But hey, is the actor right? I mean, not that we in any way promote people to not choose fake copies, but wouldn’t it be a cool idea to just shop from new-age Indian labels? That hello, is also affordable. And if you’re looking for a list, allow us to help you out.
