Zx flux in general is decent but this model is god tier
Sambas customized look much versatile IMO
used to think these were the shit but I don't think they'd be functional with the thick squishy sole, and I don't know if I like the aesthetic anyway
I have these -- I really want the customized white ones next time though
I usually post MMM mid top GATs but this is more original, I don't like the soles or the black circles but I think it would look good in a lot of fits with tight pants... I kinda want a pair.
This is probably the perfect sneaker, and the first time I will get out of my frugal zone and buy these more than their retail price
fuckin love the silhouette on these
dunno which colorway is my favorite
Zx flux plus
I got them all fàm
I am a big Dick Baller
Thousands in shoes nigga
it's too bad margiela doesn't do gats in the some of the leathers they use on futures
i think it is an interesting look. the color palette of the shoe is not offensive at all. besides, the original GAT also had a gum sole. what sole would you rather see?
Idk the Bundeswehr ones feel pretty uncomfortable
They don't exactly look up to par with the MMM GATs but they're economic, narrow, and OG so you kno I had to cop
These just showed up in the mail. Kind of in love with them.
got them in decent nick for like 50 quid, literally beat the crap out of them but still love them.
So why are you posting on a board dedicated to fashion when you're clearly clueless?
Yeah bro you totally knew about this majorly hyped and marketed shoe before it became a meme woah so cool , can you look into the future for me and tell me how many times I need to cuck your dad before he kills you and your mum in a homicidal , tear fueled raged?
Nothing but sneakers here, WTF?
GOAT coming through (every single variant of the Wyatt from SLP FW13 collection is GOAT).
Common Projects Achilles low in grain leather.
rick owens island dunks are the best sneaker of all time, the vicious kicks being the cream of the crop.
what the fuck is wrong with you all. the achilles model is the most simplistically perfect, versatile shoe with by far the most superior silhouette in the entirety of footwear history. you could be head to toe in fucking linkin park merch but still look like a good when rocking a pair of clean white cps. why people are choosing plain white nike tennis lowtops and reeboks over cps (or any half-decent shoe for that matter) as their holy grail makes me wonder where this board is going.
the recent tans look like a good pair of shoes to cop, but I understand the disdain for it in here because of its mall tier status
That status is incredibly unfortunate. Luckily it doesn't apply to me because I live in a tiny white town.
I've wanted these for a sold year.
I can't justify spending $250 on this type of shoe though.
I like these
Don't get me wrong, I really like the white achilles lows. But don't these look almost exactly like white leather low top Chucks? Why should I spend over $400 on them? I'm aware that they're going to be significantly higher in quality than a pair of Chucks. But are they worth blowing 10x the money on them? Convince me..?
it is a bit of an expenditure/luxury, but the smaller details/build quality merit it for me
they don't have a stamp across the tongue or that godawful captoe, the stitching/leather is far better, the silhouette is different in ways I care about (converse appear a bit out of proportion/clownish on me)
if their cost is a nontrivial consideration for you, get an analogous repro (svensson, schedin, et al) or just don't get them. if it's not, they feel a hell of a lot better
also, no one pays $400 for cps
different colourway, but you get the idea, marni is really good at making ugly shoes look that yet somehow look good imo
how are you going to make it work in that yellow though?
I can't see a way to concurrently offset that design and the color (casually or otherwise) or a reason to. maybe I'm lacking some appreciation for the design but I don't find it interesting enough to work with, just an obstacle to surmount
What decent white sneaks should I get (I have big feet btw) I'm returning my all white gazelles since that bubble under the sole is uncomfortable. No stans pls heard they're bad for big feet
I'm a fucking idiot who thought this was recent cops
still applies I guess, given most people were discussing shoes they had/would hypothetically wear rather than haute couture conceptual stuff
Those are all good points. I've never seen a pair irl, so I'm just going off of what I can see in pics. I definitely feel your point about the captoe, though.
Thanks for the repro suggestions, I'll have to look into those. I'm tutoring to pay my way through college right now, so price is definitely nontrivial to me..
i think the key to pulling of pieces like that is to keep the rest of your outfit fairly minimal and clean, maybe some plain trousers and coat and a standout sweater or shirt that goes with the shoes
this is the only runway image they are used in, and im not personally a huge fan of all the wewwrinkled pieces, but it sorta gives you an idea of how they can be styled
imo, marni is one of those designer brands that isnt too weird or unwearable, to me they have a sense of unpretensiousness and quirky, they really incorporate colour very well into their clothing
>i think the key to pulling of pieces like that is to keep the rest of your outfit fairly minimal and clean
that's what I was saying though, I personally don't find them that interesting and worth wearing minimal-everything to compensate for/having as a focal piece of a fit
I can see the blue being worthwhile and less dominating, but not the yellow
Filling Pieces. Dont listen to the other fucking retarded that replied to you. The top left and bottom left are the same brand. You can tell immediately from the weirdly shaped tongue with the FP on them.
Most of the ones sold on german ebay are 'slightly used' so will look p shit/never as good as the #menswear ones on tumblr etc, The ones I got were essentially beater Sambas. Sambas have no hype, you don't need to pay out the ass for shipping and you don't look like a dressed on the internet tool to those in the know.
997 and 998 are so nice, hoping there's a sale on the 997bbk soon
Wanted these for so long, but nowhere in my size.
>tfw you will see these with your eyes irl let alone own them in your lifetime
Wanted to cop something like New Balance or similar sneakers for indigo jeans, olive bomber and darker/neutral tops. Which would you recommend?
Does anyone know any shoes that look similar to these?
£200 is more than I'd like to spend on a pair of trainers to be honest.
Closest I've found so far is a few Adidas pairs.
The only really good huarache colourway imo
AAAHHHH NEEEEDD TWOOOOOO PUUURRRRRRRRRR
