Yeah, there's a bunch of options nowadays. You can even opt for a pair in wool so you don't feel so dressed down
I like Neil Barrett fwiw

Baller sneakers just need to go away for the most part.

MMM GAT's are perfectly fine and fit the "Baller Sneakers" part. They maybe pedestrian now but they look and feel comfortable. MMM in general did a good job with the footwear albeit I do not like some of the boots profiles. Just a tad wide from the instep to toe, and aside from the weird prints and exotic materials of the sneakers, the plain white and black GAT with or without gum sole iterations in lo and hi are good.

definitely stand behind this, it should be easy really, ill totally go back to rocking chucks if they can move their manufacturing to italy or usa and make their shoes as comfy as lanvin using high quality and interesting materials.

 

if thats too much to ask for then i'd just like them to figure out a way to get a wider tongue that will stay in place rather than slip to the side of their shoes exposing my feet/socks.

Let me guess you still want to pay the ~$40 or whatever price though for Converse sneakers?

stan smiths, or, honestly, most of the adidas originals. Even some of those pumas (i think they're called CLyde, or Campus or something) aren't bad and have a reasonable profile.

You can try the CP chucks.

Oh.

Well, I saw a pair of adidas originals the other day that looked pretty similar.

im being sarcastic, i dont want baller sneakers to go away. frankly i dont mind paying even retail for something like lanvin or balenciaga because the comfort and quality is something i've never found in a pair of shoes/sneakers. 

post #62173 of 109053
I don't buy the comfort thing. Better construction and superior materials ? Sure. Durability ? Maybe. But any pair of adidas, nike, vans etc will be as comfortable as GATs or whatever.

Nothing against them in principle, but it's tiring to see people blowing loads of cash on awful looking shit that ends up producing contrived-looking waywts.

Lanvins are the worst.


Different strokes...
