The blinding whiteness is the camera.. they don't look nearly that clean or bright in real life.
And, I know they don't work w/ everything, but I only have a few pairs of good shoes (these, side-zips, CP lows, and some flyknits) so I end up going for these pretty often. What would work better? I guess something like Rick Dunks with the other Rick stuff I have, but what about fits like this? I'm open to suggestions.
This fit pretty much necessitates white hi-top sneakers if you're going to wear sneakers. I think Raf vandals would go well. I don't like dunks very much (I'm in the minority here) but they wouldn't be bad in this fit. OG hi GATs probably wouldn't be that great but still an improvement imo. It's hard for me to make recommendations for this fit while having to imagination the shoes and how they would work with everything else in your outfit. Also, I'm having trouble thinking of all the sneakers I like.
Anyway, I don't think those sneakers are terrible. It only takes a few seconds in the baller sneakers thread to find a plethora of way more offensive entries. But I'm a fan of most of your fits otherwise, so I see them as a particularly weak point.
