What's the consensus on these? Worthy upgrade of the classic version? Should I invest in these (my old ones are literally falling apart), or just cop the old version?
Whaaat? Surely that must be the case of some faulty individual shoes. I bought mine four years ago and they seem fine.
(Though I don't expect the quality from over 15 years, where those are still wearable although all holey)
The general consensus is that these are better.
Now for the real question - high or low tops?
Trust me, nobody is going to buy them off you for more than you paid. Shoes are almost always a terrible thing to invest capitol in. It's must safer to invest in stocks or commodities instead.
The whole point of the shoe is its minimalism. It's just an inch of rubber under your foot with canvas to keep it there. Closer to being barefoot than most other socially acceptable / fa options.
I haven't tried the new ones but they seem to go against that.
I'm not a huge fan of them, actually. They have a rigidity and a sort of plastic look that makes them way less appealing in person.
I do like that they got rid of the contrast stiching though.
>large branding on both the sides and back of the shoe
>contrast stripes running around the sole
>useless eyelets on the side of the shoe
>obtrusive patterns on the toe guard
yeah nice minimalist sneakers you dropkick
Just copped pic related a few days ago. Comfy but honestly they're not hugely different from the old ones.
If you liked the old ones then I am sure you would like these, if you didn't like the old ones then look elsewhere senpai
shame, they seem to be unavailable around here. besides what's the inspo for high tops white sneakers? aren't white sneakers solely associated with summer light outfits and high tops are kind of the opposite?
>literally any of those things
this is a thread about the chuck 2s you stupid fucking idiot.
>useless eyelets on the side
guess you just walk around with silica packets in your socks.
i've been wearing m9160 for over a decade now and my only complain was squeaky padding after walking down the mile and canvas wearing out on on the inside corners. im on the market for a new pair and that might just be the choice i'm gonna go with
They simultaneously fixed and ruined a key part of the old ones: the soles.
The thin, kinda shitty padding in the old ones made them awesome deadlifting shoes and kinda uncomfortable everyday shoes. The reverse now applies, I imagine, though I don't own a pair.
Yes, I was thinking about these too. Sadly only four versions are available around here. And I'm unsure which one to choose.
Black is a classic choice, had that one previously, they all around good but my size is currently out of stock.
Whites are summer only right? And also hard as fuck to clean which is a minus there, which is a shame cause they're sexy as fuck.
What about blue and red? Blue sneakers feel weird for me, like they would clash with too many pants. And red? I'm worried they're too edgy or teenish, I can't imagine any adults wearing them - or maybe i'm wrong.
This is worse than normal converse. The reason the cdg versions are better is because of their cleaner look. These ones have contrast stitching, the massive converse logo, and the heart to fuck it up more. Why didn't you get the cream ones that aren't shit? Also your cuffs are fucked up.
highs look autistic and tryhard on men, if you use them be aware everyone is laughing behind your back.
they are worse for shorts but not bad with shorts. its not like its really going to grab someones attention or ruin an otherwise good fit. if you have two of the same shoe then definitely wear the lows but if the highs go better than its fine.
they look bad with shorts and ok with pants.
lows look good with shorts and good with pants.
there's no reason to prefer highs over lows imo
They are a noticeable upgrade. The rubber is far better quality an less prone to tearing like on regular chucks, as is the canvas. They're also a hell of a lot more comfortable to wear, at least for my feet, thanks to an actual insole. If you want black chucks and don't mind paying extra for the 70s, get them
I bought these Jack Purcell's a few days ago but they haven't been shipped yet. I think the color looks nice but I have no idea how it'll look it person. Did I fuck up?
