Didn't see the shoe general. Not just SLP's though. I just happen to like them a lot.
I like the blue sole that's one.
I also like the very plain look of them. Without the red and blue stripes going down the sides and the big ass converse circle. that's two.
I'm not a fan of the metal eyelets but white converse have the two little rings on the inside and I don't like that. that's three.
yeah i did, there's this vintage store in san jose and they had these black adidas gazelles for 27 bucks. near perfect condition so i bought them. also went to another thrift store with some oldschool white vans and i bought those too for like 10 bucks, replaced the black laces to white and now they're good as new.
I don't have a lot of money so i have to buy used clothes a lot but it isn't a problem most of the time
Anyone have any experience with National Standard sizing?
im a 9.5 US. there aren't any half sizes so should I go 42 (9) or 43 (10)?
I'm leaning towards 42
You know I actually considered it, but I wasn't digging the little heart. I'm not in an /fa/ environment and have masculinity issues far too deep to wear hearts on my ankles. Although they are very cool shoes, imo.
high tops it is.
reposting these-- need opinions. Jack Purcell moto jacket mids. Also come in black but I prefer the whites
the manufacturing process seems neat.
they bake the shoes in a process developed for jika tabi, supposed to make the rubber more flexible.
now if only i could find somewhere that stocks the damned things in my size.
>Saint Laurent doesn't make great looking shoes
>implying you wouldn't start a genocide in an African country for a pair of these
>and have masculinity issues far too deep to wear hearts
What, are you insecure bitchboy? I bet you're a closeted faggot. I bet you would like to suck dicks all night 24/7 haha fagget.
How do you guys feel about the Puma Court Star "Clean" version? In my opinion they look nicer than SS.
I love the purcells but the build quality on them is pretty negligible compared to a few years ago. Never worn the smiths myself but they seem to be the /fa/ staple in white sneakers
God dammit they have 2 stripes instead of 3 for fucks sake. Why does SLP ripoff Adidas so hard?
I have no idea what I'm talking about (^:
Eh not bad. I don't quite like the silhouette if that makes any sense. That's all (^:
I think I will ask for opinions on pic related. Globe Los Angered. What do you guys think? Maybe black...
Anyone ever have a paur of Globes? How was that
personally dont like the logo on the tongue
feeling the black version more than smiths though
allright i fked up my airmax last night. stepped in paint.
now i am looking for new shoes that "make me taller" just like my good ol' airmax. i like the fact that i can be taller with shoes on. new airmax or any other suggestions ?
K-Kent wangs are good CP alternatives, right guys????
my Kent Wang's just arrived. They look ok, but aren't super comfortable and the quality isn't great. Don't buy the shit on their website about "a humble modern day haberdasher," their shoes are shit-tier Asian sweatshop quality. The leather cuts aren't great, the rubber sole is poorly cut and uneven in places, and at some seams the leather is discoloured and covered with weird chemicals or glaze or some shit. For almost $100 the quality is worse than my $65 converse. I'd honestly reccomend saving up for some legit CPs or buying used if retail is too expensive.
Pic didn't work for some reason
Hedi's overdone it with the slim silhouette once again, it's like wow we get it your name is Hedi SLIMane jesus christ calm down just make some baggy woolly trews or something and stop doing the whole goddamn rockabilly thing over and over again ffs
really looking to cop a pair of cps, i'm in love. i'm usually a size 9.5 US. i hear cps run long so size down. i'm thinking 42 but i have another problem. sometimes i have to size upwards to 10.5 because of my fucking duck feet. the are pretty fat at the toes and tend to squeeze and cause blisters in a lot of shoes. anyone can give me feedback on the width in the toes of cps?
W2c shoes like these in the u.s or ships to the U.S.
Doesn't gave to be Margielas or the same model I just like the whole aesthetic to these type of shoes
buy the originals military surplus. there's a few sellers on ebay last i check. look for bundes something. can't remember the exact term, google
or plenty of brands other than margiela make similar designs as well
all the time. it's funny back when i used to buy 1-2 pairs a year i always so cherished that time when the shoes were mint and spotless.
now i don't even have time to break in a lot of my shoes and i seriously think some look best with some or even a lot of wear in them.
Finally a thread to post these shoes I'm nervous about still
