I can't be fucked to post my kicks right now so you'll have to wait!
In the meantime though, my hitops are about to die D: here's what I've been looking at for replacements:

This is the last pair of PFF hitops Revolve has in my size.

The wild maverick in me digs it but the sensible adult wants to know what the hell he is thinking.

Gram does dope shoes.

They're pretty cool and sleek even though most people will be asking me where I got those dope Chucks (same with the PFF above).

these are dope except for the jive ass white elastic stripe. What is this supposed to be, guido ankle boots turn sneakers?

I like Creative Recreation's construction for the price point but whoever comes up with these colorways should be shot.
http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t67/BullshidoTrail/CREA-MZ327_V1-BIG.jpg

I like the styling here. These are more of a midtop but they're pretty different, like a desert boot peeled itself from its crepe sole and beat up some wimpy sneaker to take its soles.

to be honest this was just an excuse to post sneakers
in reality i'm about to cop a pair of the chukkas a posted (not sure if they'll be black or white)
also, i'm trying to hunt down a pair of Bob Cousy's hitops at a sale price.
http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t67/BullshidoTrail/cousy-green.jpg
Cause as much as I want them I'm not feeling a pair of PFF for $77. I almost got them for about $40 but they were bought out from under me. I might just wait until next season's colorways go on sale cause I think I missed out this season.

I admit, the "shoelace orientation" on that shoe befuddles me.

they're by the generic man, revolve has them at roughly 50% off
http://www.revolveclothing.com/brandpages/thegenericman.jsp?&d=h&vad=1
the generic man and common projects are my favorite designer sneaker brands, though I'd only dream of copping on a considerable sale. most other designers make OH LOOK AT ME MY SHOES COST YOUR PAYCHECK designs but TGM and CP keep it clean.

MEGA JESUS-SAMA
25th July 09, 12:42 AM
to be honest i would avoid the designer sneaker brands because they're mostly about leather sneakers. The analogy about buying a hamburger from a world class chef applies cause even though they'll be the best canvas sneakers you've ever worn they're still just canvas sneakers.

For canvas my go to brand is PF Flyers. Think of them as Chuck Taylors with all the suck removed; better insoles, better construction, better options for colorways and uppers, and at basically the same price to boot (unless you're getting one of their couture materials). Zig Zag and Keds are other, more widely available options. If you do buy Chucks, check to make sure that the canvas is two-ply cause after the brand was bought out by Nike most of the mainline was switched to single ply.

I don't know how vegan you are but it's possible to call these companies and ask if their leather is sourced from naturally dead animals. I know a couple of not-so-hardcore veggie heads who go this route when they buy leather goods. I don't know anyone who does this off the top of my head.

With TGM you're looking at years of wear, not a year of wear. That and the fact that I only paid $97.50 for my leather pair just now makes them a sound investment compared to cheaper shoes. I don't make enough money to buy most of my favorite brands at retail but then there's no particular reason for me to pay retail anyway.

Someone should sticky your post with the good-buying sites and the discount code sites. I pay way too much for my swagga.

I'm not too concerned on it, my current hiking shoes are leather, but they were a gift. I really meant black tie event shoes, though thank you for your opinion on PFF vs. CT.

That's tricky, cause in the Western world classy shoes usually = leather shoes. I'd say source them second hand or from animals that died of natural causes because leatherlike materials suck dick.

Not my style, but don't worry about PFF making bad shoes. They start at $88, which is decent for leather sneakers with a stitched outsole. You could do better for that if you're slick with discounts or forum marketplaces but I don't think you'll find many superior options construction wise at that price point.
