Some alternatves to chucks, blazers ?
don't do it
vans old skools are much better
People here perceive sk8-hi's as a meme shoe when in reality no one irl will care. CDG shoes are all kinda bunko so don't worry about them too much. If you do end up getting sk8-hi's I would recommend getting the normal canvas version because the leather on the re-issues is sorta low quality from what I've heard. Canvas will also be a little cheaper if you're working on a budget.
the hi-tops look enormous.
like weird astronaut shoes or something.
they usually put way too much highlight on your feet, make your ankles look bigger, make your legs look spindlier.
the reason the the low profile white shoe works is because it ads to the "directionality" of an outfit. Like the little white wedge of a foot shape communicates a lot either in the way you carry your weight or in your body language in social situations. For instance you tend to put your feet to the person, activity, or direction you're most interested in, and this exagerates that.
The hi-tops tend to be more amorphous, as tall as they are long, the message gets lost.
i've got a pair of sk8-his but they are a black suede variant
Sk8-his at large are perfectly fine, but can look a little childish, like a cartoon. if you don't keep them simple and subdued, preferably dark. In this situation the white stripe, white sole, and any other small highlights are supposed to do the communicating, while making your foot look over all much smaller.
you have a point there, besides my feet are size 12 so anything looking remotely clown-shoe like gets blown up on me. I supose i'll have to try on all of the variants i like and see which fit the best.
I have a pair of these, picked them up in the PUMA x ALIFE color way. Pretty into them, and they're way more comfy than the Blazers I just got. waaaaay more comfy. Pic related (not my pic, but still)
literally never seen a fit of someone wearing these but have always been interested...
Top kek, anon gave us a manifesto of why old skools are a better look and sk8 his are garbage. And you think it's okay to share your 2-bit opinion with us?
Thanks for having a trip so I never have to read your stupid comments again.
Ive always liked air pythons but i think the peals look better imo
Puma sneakers are definitely the comfiest among the big brands, Nike Free aside.
If you bothered to read you'd see that the shoes are the same model as the ones that he quoted, but in the ALIFE colorway. If reading comprehension is that difficult for you I suppose it'd be impossible for you to google puma x alife suede mid
I did: Puma x alife mids.
The color in person is a nice, soft, and kind of faded charcoal grey. Im a big fan of the color and the shoes general aesthetic.
Yeah, true. Didn't expect that.
