Are these new Chuck Taylor Alpha's /fa/?
Is that suede?
Suede looks good when new, but on footwear it wears like shit. Only cop if you live somewhere dry and aren't clumsy, one oil/coffee stain and your shoes will look like you shat on them.
I've been wearing the basic converse high tops for years, and I'm pretty sick of them. Are there other similar looking brands that are either cheaper or are better quality that will last significantly longer?
Or should I just be buying nicer Converse?
