post #85066 of 101119

Yesterday I decided that my Pierre Hardy sneakers aren't the type that look really good beat up and dirty, even though that's usually how I like my shoes.

 

I decided to clean them with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, and I've gotta say it worked really well.  I wasn't going to post any pics until I got some new laces put on them, and took pics of the finished job, but just because anything is better than this game of Marco Polo, here are the before pics.

 

I will say that the magic eraser took some of the gloss off the leather from what I can tell (it is abrasive after all) so I've gotta find something to treat them with, although I do really like the matte finish it gave them.  We'll see.

 

Hopefully I can find some new laces easily after work, but the few places I went to during lunch only had 40" ones when the ones I took off were ~45" or 120cm or so.

I actually dig the way those look darty. You might have fond memories of the shoes when they were new, but if I saw those randomly on the street, I think my reaction would be positive. The key is that it's an even smattering of dirt and not, say, a malevich-esque splotch of hamburger sludge

I just saw this acquaintance of mine wearing a sweatshirt from this label called Boy London with an eagle that looks exactly like the Nazi Party Eagle emblazoned on the front. Trying to reappropriate fascist iconography seems like an unwise decision.

Here's the comparison:

I hate it when my shoes get darty, especially when the darts start sticking into my feet. It's usually my fault for walking in front of the dartboard, though.

To say you're into fashion and disregard asians is the stupid shit you could ever do. Asianswear is not only more important than menswear but is far more innovative. Plus, once you really develop some level of taste you can cross dress like a mortal Jesus - a la Big Bang. If you stick to menswear and only menswear you're doing yourself a disservice.

So non-sensical I truly can't believe you took the time out of your life to post this.  My mind is continually blown by how much this site cares about my thoughts, you all make me feel so special :')

it's better to distract dart players with wild hand motions than with cartwheels

Speaking of digressions, ridiculous shoe owners: How do you deal with ridiculous squeaking? These Margielas are squeaky. Very, very squeaky. Foul sirens at my heels. They herald my entry to fine dining establishments long before I squeak across the threshhold; they draw stares and laughter and opprobrium. Will the squeaking fade with time? Can I treat the rubber or the leather? Is this all just a joke played on me by the Maison?

Thank you.

They seem fairly new.....and this is a problem I've had before, it goes away with wear.
