If you're buying for durability buy chucks for $40 and replace them because you're not going to get 10 times as much out of a pair of CPs. The point of more expensive sneaks is that they're worth paying more if you like them more. And I have never seen a decent looking pair of cole haans. Ever. Regardless of whether you're spending less than 100 or more than 500 if you're buying ugly shit without realizing it you're still wasting money and it doesn't really matter the quantity or quality in that case.

Keep in mind you're also paying for the idea, design, exclusivity, ect..

Stylish is the worst aesthetic related adjective ever

"Dressy" is far worse.

I think it boils down to the fact that I look (no question) 100x sexier in nice jawnz/shoes than in JCrew (or whatever). (1) All of the big purchases I've made have ended up paying dividends in numerous ways. But, as has been said, with great ballerdom comes great responsibility. Purchase with steez ethics.

@JD May...the question was not wether or not you like colehaan. I just wanted to know are high end sneakers really worth their price tag in terms of durability. obviously the style in unique, but leather is leather and it will scratch, stretch, and crease...no matter who makes it.
post #1778 of 23532
Fine, the answer is no. They are better durability and way better materials usually but it isn't a justification for the price tag, even if you're trying to stretch the law of diminishing returns to try to make it fit. They are worth what they're worth if you like them enough to pay whatever the price is, same as everything else. If you buy sneakers for durability as the primary basis for the price you're paying look elsewhere from Lanvin / Raf / MMM / Rick etc stuff getting props in this thread. If the primary basis is what they look like, maybe they're worth it to you, maybe not.

But I have a pair of American Cups that I have had for 4yrs. I have worn them casually, to the club, even washed the car in them. I must admit they have held up well beyond my expectations and still look good. I currently own several pr's of Prada's, Gucci, Ferragamo, 1 pr Dior...thats it for high end. Everything else is little trendy stuff or Colehaan (actually one of my fav, classic and still stylish)
Cole Haans are trash, wouldn't wear a pair if it lasted 5 millennia

How do the lowtop raf simons velcro's fit compared to, say, common projects in the same size? same sole = same size or is it wacky like lanvin?
