    I'm 43 and I made fun of those sneakers.

    Teasing is one thing. Trying to discount and ridicule an entire generation because they do things differently is another.
    I think this promotion was just teasing. As people pointed out, the promotion was created by millenials. So, I assume they were poking fun of themselves.

    I think every generation has a stereotype. And different era’s of the generation have stereotypes. And people will always make fun of the other generation as well as their own.

    I’m 45 and those sneakers were downright stylish compared to my all whit new balances. I just looked it up and it was 14 pages of hilarity.

    The white NB and Nike are interchangeable in the old man starter pack.

    Reminds me of when Cov. Latin started embracing the terms and calling themselves geeks or Nerds. And pointed out to the teams that were about to beat them by 50 that one day they will be working for a Cov. Latin grad. LOL

    Not really insulted by the truth. Seems millennials tend to be irritated by it, so it opens the door for poking fun.
    Yep. What generation didn't get made fun of by the older generation? I sure do remember it when I was younger. Never took any of it to heart. In fact, I used to get a kick out of it, they'd "insult" us, we would "insult" them. No one was upset or upright about it.

    Contrast that with lazy, spoiled, and over- emotional.

    Not exactly the same.
    Yeah right, we never heard any of that when we were young... Come on, it was constant.

    I don't think it's any worse today, just more available with social media and other avenues for information.

    They're lasting legacy is a seemingly insurmountable pile of unnecessary debt that we'll be left to fix. Thanks a lot old people.
    I'll bite. What exactly did they do that millinenals aren't repeating?

    Millennials - I'm saddened to call myself one. Yet by definition I am one.

    Hey Zeus people - just relax and laugh

    I decided a little while ago that if people can choose what gender they identify with, then I can choose what generation I identify with.

    So 32 I may be, millennial I am not.
