Contrast Paragraphs II

Adidas vs Nike

When shopping for soccer shoes buy Adidas and not Nike. There are many reasons why you should buy Adidas and not Nike. Adidas has the lightest shoes that are durable so they have high durability and low weight. Adidas shoes also fit a variety of feet. Nike shoes only fit people with slim feet but Adidas also fits wide-footed people. Nike also overprices their shoes. Are you willing to pay $390 for a pair of Nike soccer shoes when you can get a pair of better quality Adidas shoes for less money? Is it worth it to pay more just to have a swoosh? That is why Adidas is better than Nike.

Grishko vs Capezio

Grishko 2007 pro is better than Capezio. Grishko is better because they are made for all levels of pointe dancers. When your dancing your feet feel satisfied with how the shoe forms on your foot when you are on the block. There is three different shanks for how strong your arch is. Also, they look beautiful on your feet and gives you a long line. The Grishko shoe is made for putting less pressure on your big toe joint. Capezio doesn’t have half those things and that’s why Grishko is better.

Big Dogs vs Little Dogs

When choosing your next dog you want to make sure you choose the perfect one. Do you want a dog that’s friendly and safe and won’t constantly yap? Sounds like you want a big dog and not a little dog. Still thinking of getting a little dog? Think again. The perfect dog for you is a big dog! They’re friendlier and generally calmer than small dogs causing them to be better with kids. Little dogs are more aggressive and more likely to bite because their small size makes them constantly feel threatened. All dogs bark. Big dogs only bark when they are being protective. Little dogs bark at everything and they bark all day and all night. A yapping pet doesn’t sound like a great pet. Want a dog that will always stay loyal and is constantly wanting to please? Adopt a big dog.



Contrast Paragraphs

School vs Home

Being at school is so much better than being at home. At school you get to see your friends and favourite teachers but at home you don’t. Also, unlike home, you don’t have to do chores and you get to learn about stuff that will help you in the future. People say that they prefer home because they can be lazy all day, but if you’re lazy you won’t learn anything and you’ll get so fat you won’t be able to do anything. Last and certainly not least, at school you have the freedom to be your own person because you don’t have your parents there always telling you what to do. Home may be where the heart is but school is where the life is.

Lebron vs Curry

In this paragraph I’m going to explain why Lebron James is superior to Steph Curry. First thing is Lebron is more powerful than Curry because Lebron goes to the gym more. Next fact is Lebron is mentally better than Curry. Lebron can figure out plays faster and sees everything. Curry is slow learning and can’t see around the whole court because he’s too short. Last fact is Lebron is an all-round player because he can sink 3s, dunks,  jump shots, and layups. Curry can only sink 3s but nothing else. So that’s my reasons why Lebron is way better than Curry.

Paintings vs Photographs

Paintings are superior to photographs. Every piece is made completely unique whereas a photograph can only show things as they are. Both capture events. However, a painting depicts the artist’s thoughts and perspectives. Painters can use different styles and expressions so the artwork can be realistic and well-proportioned like a photograph or uniquely creative and abstract. Would you rather hang a photo of a subject or an artist’s original work? Surely you’d prefer a painting that represents artistic talent and hours of labor over a photo you could’ve taken yourself in mere seconds. Painting has been an effective and creative means of communicating images and ideas since the earliest days of our species. Photography, without technology, is impossible. Paintings have been around before photographic technology and will exist longer than society itself and therefore are superior in all ways to photography.
