To be fair, after I came to the bowling alley realization of CPs, I've not posted about them since nor do I have any desire to. However I did say if CP came out with a burgundy derby no-shine on crepe sole, that would seriously make me reconsider dealing with the branding issue. I've not repeated other individual gimmicks unnecessarily either. The EG example from today was the very first time I've even seen a vert zipper on the back of any of their jackets or anywhere else for matter of fact. My criticism of EG before was almost entirely based on the print 'diarrhea' displayed in the runway stylings.
I would like to share one of the very best acquisitions I've made which arrived a few minutes ago. Most of the reading I did from past threads was rather negative of these shoes, except on the CM side, but I took a 'chance' and now that I have them on my feet I can definitively say they are the very best sneakers I've ever owned. From online pictures I was worried they would look huge but that's not the case at all. They're extremely comfortable and no chemicals were used in the dyeing process. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I just wish they were still in available in smog color as well but perhaps they'll be reissued in the future.
