Don't shoot me but it's pretty funny how you guys seem to love the Nike AF and Vandal aesthetic and design but loathe the brand and swoosh. These Rafs are essentially well constructed, sleeker, higher quality leather AF without the swoosh.

Don't get me wrong, I think they're awesome and a big step up from a pair of AF. I'm just puzzled by the intense hate for the designs these sneakers are often pretty obviously inspired by.

I think a lot of people that like the raf vandal also really like the nike one.

However, you seem to have explained the major reasons people choose "designer" versions over the nike ones with your comment below:

it's not like you will see it anyways when you wear pants over them.
if you don't like that how do you deal with the giant MMM "plate" on the tongue of all their shoes?

It's almost as bad as the tb patch which looks like an afterthought as well. The mmm logo is integrated with the tongue and it's embossed which is far more subtle instead of a BADGE plus it doesn't say HEY LOOK AT ME I'M RAF SIMONS. That's how it's different.

I actually like the embossed MMM logo on the shoes.

lol. ok but they are both just logos. Raf Simons logo is his name. MMM's logo is a rectangle with numbers. So anyone walking down the street that can identify wtf Raf Simons even is will also be able to say HEY LOOK AT HIM, ITS THE HOUSE OF MARTIN MARGIELA. on most of the mmm sneakers its not integrated. its just a patch that's sewn on. just like the TB patch.

Only difference being the mmm shoes have the brand where they're supposed to have the logo instead of SEWN ON THE FRONT OF A SHIRT.
