Why Do All Latino Dads Dress The Same?

There’s no question that Latino dads are hard-working, loving, funny and incredibly supporting. We love them for that. But one thing papá could work on is his selection in the fashion department…

We all have the dad who refuses to let go of the shirt he got as a birthday gift.

The one he got 15 years ago, but won’t let go porque “todavía está buena.”

He’s still on that 1990 cholo style.

Happy Father's Day to this cool guy ! #mexicandad #fathersday #??

Never mind that he now wears dad glasses, he’s still rocking his plaid shirt, khaki pants, and beanie. Como siempre… Time to upgrade.

Plaid is his Sunday’s finest.

His fashion motto is socks up, belly out.

Because it’s hot up top, cold down below.

He sometimes decides shirts are optional.

Ain’t no shame in his dad bod… But he still won’t let go of the socks and sneakers.

He sometimes tries to pull a monochrome Kanye look.

All white everything and ready for anything because the casual sleeveless shirt, baseball cap, but fancy cowboy boots would be acceptable whatever the dress code may be.

His signature tejana is his favorite accessory.

Perfect for hiding his bald spot. Goes perfectly with his ‘stache.

Some prefer the classic baseball cap.

Serves the same purpose as the tejana.

But he switches it up at the beach with protective gear.

Even if they look a bit silly, dads know better than to expose their body to too much sunlight. READ: Only Latino Dads Make Their Family Go Through All This When Road Tripping

He thinks he looks as cool as you with his blue polarized sunglasses.

He hates on USA teams, but has no problem rocking these.

First Crocs, Now Adidas: Bad Bunny To Launch Major Collaboration And Here’s What We Know So Far

First Crocs, Now Adidas: Bad Bunny To Launch Major Collaboration And Here’s What We Know So Far

Omar Vega / Getty Images

It seems like 2020 has been the year of sneaker collaborations – or in Bad Bunny’s case – Crocs collaborations. From Bad Bunny to J Balvin, Travis Scott to Christian Dior, it seems that everyone is trying to get their name on a fresh pair of sneakers.

And I’m not complaining. I love a good shoe collaboration as much as the next guy, however, news of a possible Adidas and Bad Bunny collaborations has me extra excited since both of those are my favorites of their respective worlds. For me: Adidas is to the sneaker world what Bad Bunny is to reggaetón.

So far there haven’t been a lot of details released by either San Benito nor Adidas but this is what we do know.

Adidas x Bad Bunny will be releasing an epic sneaker collection early next year.

It’s just weeks after Bad Bunny’s custom Crocs basically broke the Internet and we’re already getting news (or at least rumors) of a possible Adidas x Bad Bunny collaboration happening soon. According to a story by Complex, Bad Bunny is about to bring more of his signature looks to your sneaker collection.

The Complex story says that a source familiar with the brand’s product plans for next year told them about the likely collab. However, neither Adidas nor Bad Bunny have announced the sneaker and wouldn’t confirm the project when reached for comment. If true though, the kicks would likely arrive as part of the sportswear brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 offerings.

In a photo Complex shared of the rumored sneaker, we get a possible first look at the soon-to-be sold out sneaker. The color palette featured on the Puerto Rican’s take on the Forum silhouette looks quite similar to his crocs with all-beige detailing that very well may also be glow-in-the-dark. The kicks seem to feature light blue design details on the sole and side sole of the shoes.

An Adidas x Bad Bunny collab will likely do as well or even better then his recent Crocs launch.

If rumors are true, the Forum would be El Conejo Malo’s first sneaker collaboration, although he already has a wildly-successful Crocs line that he released in September. And fans have proven themselves willing to go to great lengths to get their hands on Bad Bunny anything basically (myself included!).

The Crocs retail for $60 USD but are already being resold for more than $200 USD on sites like e-bay. Not to mention that the Crocs launch left many fans disappointed because of their instant success – the line sold out within minutes.

When the collab was initially announced, Bad Bunny called himself a “longtime fan” of the famous brand, adding that he hoped his version inspires his fans to “have their own fun with their personal style and wearing what makes them happy.”

He even got a little sentimental, adding: “I believe in being true and not placing limitations on myself, which is also something Crocs represents, and this is the message I always want to make sure I send out to my fans.”

For those of you who aren’t well-versed in Croc lingo, Jibbitz charms are jewelry-like flair you can pin through the holes of your Crocs. The Bad Bunny x Crocs Jibbits reference his music from his recent YHLQMDLG album–fire emojis, stars, planets, a man holding a sign that says: zona de perreo. And, of course, there was a bunny Jibbit as well.

It’s no secret that Bad Bunny is a sneaker lover.

In a 2018 episode of Sneaker Shopping on Complex, Bad Bunny explained his footwear history, saying that his native Puerto Rico was lacking in boutique stores.

“Ever since I was a child, I’ve liked sneakers,” Bad Bunny said then.

He’s not the only Latin trap artist that’s expected to release their own shoe soon. Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin said in an April interview with High Snobiety that his Air Jordan 1 collaboration was supposed to launch in November. Jordan Brand hasn’t confirmed this news.
