***Finally an Official Baller sneaker thread ($300 minimum)*** - Page 1210

post #18136 of 21841
I'm not sure I really get the love for the SLP sneakers. Ok, yes, ultra-minimal white sneaker, but still - they're retailing for 500, stan smiths look, I think, even nicer to me - and then, of course, you could always buy CP Lows or highs (or bball highs), which again, look better to me than the SLP high top. Reminds me of some station wagons, when you can see that it's just a sedan that someone slapped a hatchback onto: Hey look we took the tongue from raf simons and slapped it onto a pair of adidas with this weird ass ankle cuff thing.

Dont know why but everytime I see the SLP highs, I think of Star Wars.

Awesome -- definitely post pics! The pleated ones of their website now are an off-white, right? I thought the white looked best.

Those are the white ones. They just look like crap in that pic.

yeah, those are the white ones. they still have size 7 and 9-12. the pre-order was sold out, so this must be the extra stock they ordered for their website.

i'll take some pics next week after i receive them.

If I'm a size 41 in GATs, a 40 in those Balenciaga pleated highs should fit me, rigfht?

Barneys shoe pics often look terrible to me. They take them from such an unflattering angle.

i hope so, because i'm also size 41 in gats and i pre-ordered size 40 in these pleated highs. most people seem to size down one from their GAT size.

I think there are like 3 of use who likes the hi's here and even less for the lows. lol8[1].gif So I am not sure there is much love on it at all.


As for CP, I just find the shape too weird for my foot. They are overly narrow, in the right length (41) the sides are bursting due to my wide feet but even when I size up to 42 the sides is still bursting and it just looks extra long. Can't judge the SLP yet since I haven't tried them on yet.

i have the same problem with CPs. the only pair i ever really wanted were the black mids but when I checked them out they were just too narrow. also with you on the SLP highs. i actually think they look good.
post #18147 of 21841

Am I the only one who thinks CPs run wide? shog[1].gif

 

Put me down as liking all the non-bedazzled SLPs; it's refreshing to see a fashion sneaker that doesn't feature 12 different types of leather and embellishment.

But there are a lot of sneakers that don't do that.

I have the MMM highs and while they're cool, those SLPs would be so much easier to wear.
