I'm from Chicago and it seems the themes that adapted to the show are from other cities. In Chicago we call shoes with logos on them gym shoes. Not sneaker, kicks or anything else. There were a lot of discrepancies in this episode. The main one that stuck out is the lines: Brandon- "Because you're from Hyde Park and I'm from 63rd and Yates?!" The Hyde Park part is right but Brandon must be related to Aqua-man because 63rd and Yates in Chicago is Lake Michigan. I just wish the writing was more consistent with the storyline.
