I get the sense that people are starting to hate sneakers generally around these parts. The new designs are often tacky and generally not as good as the older ones, but sneakers have always been a bit tacky in a fun sort of way so it isn't much of a departure.
Pretty sure all of those are Neil Barrett. There are actually some old NB designs I like, so I'll see if I can dig up some shots.
Was it Synth that had the black ones with white paint that peels off?
No idea on the pricing of the AM x Lobb, sorry.
Yes, I do - Recently I painted the white parts black. Now they're all black with black patent accents and a white sole. I think they look better than they did when they were white. I still rarely wear them.
why does it matter that the exterior is extremely rough? I own several pairs of GATs and the new painted ones are my favorite by far. If you like them, then cop. I think most of the other recent GATs are pretty boring.
