Those handmade chucks look fantastic, but, yeah, there is no way I would pay that much for them.

And before anyone mentions the irony of me taking the subway, I put $5000 down on my metrocard.

Take the taxi if you got that much to spend on the subway.

I find your morsels of advice to be immensely helpful. Do you have a periodical newsletter that I may subscribe to?

I find your pompousness highly affected. Nouveau riche? If your boasts are even real ...

I like the black pair. Red leather looks good too.

those hitop JPs are cool!

The hi-tops are cool, but what's with that patch in the back? Looks terrible. They should make the oxblood in hi -- that would be murder.

Are those red leathers Lo or Hi? I guess they look like lo's. It's nice to see a couple JP hi top models that have the classic toe (in comparison to the different toe on say the Racearound). That rear patch on the black is weird. It looks like to me a big rectangular patch with a Converse logo that looks like it's in the Von Dutch font. ugh. I wonder if it's removable. Strangely enough I like those white hi tops most of all. When do these hit stores? A few months still right?

Not to add fuel to fire but isn't "pomposity" always "highly affected"? I mean that's more or less the definition, right?

Oh, man, those white canvas JPs look fantastic!

Not sure why, but I don't like the side strap things.
