Kmart manager lurks /fa/ who would known.
The dude probably lurking this thread as we speak
They're so fucking similar holy shit.
How was the quality OP?
You could buy 18 pairs for 400 and they would last longer than CPs objectively just throw out the pair every two months and they'll last longer than your meme shoes hahahahaha /fa/ is dead where is your god now faggots
>can't cp sue him or something???
nope b/c fashion design is highly derivative that unless they're an obvious knock off (as in EXACTLY the same), they can't rly do anything. Sometimes factories that produce a product for a pricey brand will sell the exact thing to a cheapo brand w/o the branding and the brand will charge less b/c it's not as prestigious. there' a # that will tip u off on where the product was manufactured so if two v similar products are sold by diff. brands at dissimilar prices check that #.
They look similar enough, but just from the picture they're obviously cheap knockoffs. The glue splatter on the upper, the false stitched soles, the cheap fat laces, the shiny pleather, the wider silhouette, the embossed numbers which can't be rubbed off
The most obvious benefit of Common Projects is the quality, and the fact that a shoe as simple and at the same time high quality doesn't really exist elsewhere. Why have so many brands/designers tried and failed to rip CPs? Is it really that difficult?
I personally really like some CPs. I would never buy anything like those in the picture, but high/low grey and white achilles, vintage highs in black and white, bball highs/lows in red, navy and white are all great, along with the suede derbies they released at some point. I have no respect for a brand which would blatantly rip the design of another shoe--inspiration is fine, but this is something else. Common Projects themselves were inspired by Rod Lavers/Stan Smiths, and the designers have stated as much, this shit is disgusting and reminds me of the way Allsaints, Zara, Fabrixquare, Demobaza, ADYN shamelessly rip shit from designers and peddle it as though they haven't just stolen designs right out of a more respected brand/designer's lookbook or show.
What I'm surprised at is how people seem to be okay with this derivative trash.
Inb4 'hahaha regret ur meme shoe cop now huh?!?! BTFO'
I don't own CPs, but may buy some at some point in the future, enjoy being disgusting newbois.
Fucking thank you holy shit.
People forget that if they had the option to take either CP's or a CP clone for free they'd ALWAYS pick the CP's, they're the better shoe.
People know what they want when looking for the alternatives that's why they're called alternatives, buying anything other than CP's is just treating yourself like shit, why settle for less? The only answer is /fa/ is poor and retarded.
>buying CP knockoffs
The only reason your buying CPs is because we tell you it's cool, no pleb will notice. So are all you people buying fake CPs to impress your fake internet friends?
hard to imagine that just a few years ago it was actually difficult to find basic (and i am talking BASIC), decent quality leather sneakers. it's the whole reason cp's were successful in the first place; making vanilla shoes with nice materials. now i can't browse my favorite webzones without tripping over a fuccboi in slim #basic #functional #minimalist sneaks and you can buy knock offs in an age where you don't even need to anymore
