Hey /fa/, just started getting more into fashion and while im still trying to build up the basics, id like a good pair of white trainers/sneakers/whatever you want to call them. I was thinking about getting Stan Smiths but are they just meme shoes?
>>
>>10795600
If you're just building up the basics you need the meme shoes. Personally I hate them but they're an essential around these parts, so go ahead. I'd advise you to get a different color for that heel cap, should get the navy one instead.

Dude just get the stans. If you're so worried about it being a 'meme' shoe just get the ones with the blue heel
>>
>>10795722
Even worse
>>
>>10795739
i dont really care if its a meme i just want something that looks good. fucks sake
>>
>>10795740

18+ even for blue boards, go do your homework kiddo
>>
Get a collab stans so you can feel /fa/. People on this board (4chan in general) hate popular things overall but there is literally nothing wrong with stans. Just don't be a cuck and get the green heel tab
>>
Get the stans with velcro instead of laces.
>>
>>10795747
That's why I'm saying just get the stans. No matter what /fa/ says they look good
>>
>>10795752
There is literally nothing wrong with the green heel

>>10795768
>>10795752
would the red one be fine?
>>
>>10795777
Yes if you like red
>>
>>10795777
Yes. Those are nice. Are you looking just at white stans or other colorways?

SS are nice. You can have them all white if you like.
>>
>>10795801
I would prefer just white. I cant really afford many different colored shoes at the moment
>>
>>10795812
Just decide which heel color you like best and you're good to go
>>
>>10795809
holy fuck german army trainers are basic as fuck shoes, I don't understand how anyone would pay 400+ for them. I'm not that of a cheapfag , I mean I would buy Balenciagas close to retail price.

This!

I have the reg stans and I'm considering copping the velcros
>>
>>10795739
If they're overdone in your area, go for something else. If you rarely see em you might as well cop em, they look good, wear well, and they make for good beaters and they're a really good shoe to start out with.
>>
Does anyone know where i can cop gat or gat-like shoes? I've been searching for a few hours and all I can find are some used ones on German ebay that might not even fit me.

"meme shoes" is so fucking stupid oh my god i've literally seen about 5 instances of people wearing stan smiths irl

who the fuck cares about impressing /fa/ you faggot
>>
They're perfectly fine white shoes. I've literally only seen like 3 irl, don't fall for the Internet meme thing. But get the more expensive ones, the big tongue on the retail US ones are ugly as shit.
>>
>>10795920
where?
>>
>>10797368
In europe everybody who consider themselves fashionable (read: teenyboppers and fashionvictims) wears one of the three following
>Stan Smith (in a variety of heel tabs)
>Superstar
>Airforce 1

I see them everywhere, all the time.
>>
poorfag here, w2c Stans for cheap as fuck. ($40-60)
>>
>>10798215
This. I was in the city centre telling my friend he should buy some when I realised that there were 5 people within sight wearing Stans or Superstars, or something trying to be them.
>>
>>10795887
lol

dont do this OP

vans havent been relevant since 2008
>>
>>10798215
he's not in Europe
>>
>>10798215
Stan smiths applies to every one, to designers like raf simons, to musicians like a$ap Rocky
>>
>>10795600
Regular white/green stans are fine, they are just popular so people here say they are lame.

>>10795722
I personally like the superstars because of their association with hip hop, but without the right aesthetic you will either look like a bro or a slav.

>>10798215

>People wear popular shoes that are part of trends.
In other news, the sky remains blue.

>>10795600
I would recommend the corgi from Buddy Japan if you want to drop more money on them, but otherwise Stans are fine.
>>
>>10795722
goat shoe desu
>>
>>10798215
>Stan Smith

Yeah, way to popular. Almost every 'fashion' retailer carries them here. It's the go to shoe for people who have no idea how to dress.

Try to get your hands on these bad boys, my niggah!

I bet you think you're hot shit dressed in mall tier clothes lel
I wouldn't even bother glancing or looking in your general direction, I would actually turn my head away from the slightest glimpse of you in the corner of my eye and make a facial gesture to myself of smelling something putrid. If I were to have the terrible misfortune of accidentally looking at you then I would immediately turn 360 degrees and walk away
I wear full Rick Owens btw

why don't you just accept that stans are a staple of minimal but fashionable sneakers?
>>
>>10800767
Because they are hyped and pushed into the market by Adidas. People wear them because they are literally available everywhere.

Same with the Janoski's from NIke.

Deep down in your heart, you know I'm the one who is right.

So because of hype/marketing, they can't be a wardrobe staple?
>>
>>10800683
I actually considered getting these, but the material seems iffy.
>>
>>10800814
Yeah I could see stand going the way of the janoski just because they require no effort to pull off. Superstars are less accessible and harder to pull off without looking like a tumblrina or yeezy type fashion victim. Due to this when they're pulled off in an understated way they are dope.
>>
>>10798215
no way

you completely forgot nike air max
>>
>makes judgements based on other people on /fa/
Think for yourself you meme
>>
you could buy every trend and meme wear suggested on /fa/ and still look like a bag of shit. If you need other people to make your fashion decisions, rent a mother or grandmother. You need to know your strengths and weaknesses and wear what you want. If you look good, others will follow.
>>
>>10795722
would be dope if no fucking clamshell toe
>>
>>10795846
did you misspell GOAT ?
>>
>>10795600
My professional advice is that any time you hear the word "meme" thrown around as a modifier to any article of clothing, it means that it's a popular item. All the kids around here like to be as edgy and contrarian as possible, so at the slightest hint of something becoming a trend they call it a meme and desperately try to find the next flavor of the month style. The thing is though, these meme styles are popular for a reason, and that reason is that they are cool, and trendy in every way. And the best part is that practically nobody outside of 4chan is going to really recognize it as a gimmicky trend.

So next time you read meme smith, ignore it because Stan Smiths are great and will suit you well.
>>
>>10795887
Second, they actually look really nice in white suede/leather. Clean suede with baby powder n water if you dont know btw
>>
>>10800699
you're just proving his point

Stans are really common so visit any shoe store near you to try them out. If you like them it's a great basic for a low price, if not there are tons of alternatives as posted in this thread. I'm personally gonna buy ETQs as I'm too poor to cop CPs.
However this >>10795747 is the wrong attitude. If you want people to tell you what looks good you can fuck off

everyone who lives in a big city and has some more thoughts on fashion except matching the belt to your shoes and style tips from popular magazines recognizes it.
