My dad knows nothing about fashion. He's gone through phases where he wears a fishing vest (great for storage) and a ranger hat (full sun coverage). These days, though, it seems the man is ahead of the trends. While he's been wearing thick-soled sneakers and Birkenstocks for as long as I can remember, it's only in the last few years that I've seen my peers gravitate toward the same trends.
So now that "dad" sneakers have reached full-blown cult status, what does an OG think about the trend? I decided to pester him for an answer (and encourage a few of my co-workers to do the same with their fathers too). The resulting text messages have managed to crack us up, confuse us, and even offend us a little bit. The overarching consensus? "Dad" shoes are still a bit of a mystery to dads.
