I sold my ldb as the cut was too big for me, but from what i remember they definitely kick out from the knee albeit in a subtle way

That's why the 5EP are called "Low Down Boots"; they have a subtle boot cut. I was also trying to get my round how a bootcut jean can look tapered in any way
I just recieved a pair of greycast slim jims and i like the difference in color from the brighter indigos but i'm unsure what colors to wear with them ? I'm also slightly put off by the double stitching on the outer seam of the legs. Am i being too picky or does this put anyone else off about slim jims ?
Big fan of adidas originals here. My favourites : Athen, Italia, Hawaii, Gazelle vintage, Universal. Loads more but cant think at the moment

For me not much works with my apc ns for instance. Even chucks and spring courts look to big with them imo (maybe i just need to get used to the look) The only shoe i've found so far is the classic superga and my trusty adidas italia (like La guy). I will be getting some clarks dessies which may work as well.

The Chuck is a considerably more streamlined shoe (personally, I think that it looks good with most things). As for big feet, well, I think that if you are going to wear slim pants, you need a pronounced, noticeable shoe, unless you want to look like a ballerina. I personally always wear footwear that is light colored or...

How does the fit of these compare to that of the RRDS? I've had both and although RRDS has a slightly bigger bootcut they look straighter than the 5ep LDB when on imo.
Definitely Paul smith
