Rollins have IMO a better design, shame about the ugly branding.

Hi's are dope

I think the SLP white Hi's and Lo's are great, don't why people are are putting the hate on

If I didn't have Margiela OG hi's and mid's I'd go SLP for sure

Haven't seen anyone really hate on them, just that they're kinda meh for the price

Anything is better than GATs.

post #18249 of 22223

I´m starting to agree with this. I´ve barely been wearing mine all summer long. Mostly sticking to prorsum sandals and levi´s boots.

My GATs are so worn they're an embarrassment to Belgium. Aren't the SLP highs $595 or something like that...doesn't seem that expensive on a relative basis.

Half the RRP of Dunks, will probably last about twice as long :P

Robokopped a pair of SLP white hi's. Was going to get the lows (and still might later this season), but decided fuck it, I don't have enough high tops.

The SLP Hi's could really benefit from making the ankle part longer (not taller) so that it can wrap around a bit more, an extra half an inch on both sides would make it much better, right now it is just too short. Still very wearable but I am not sure plenty will settle for retail price.

Quality between the SLP vs. YSL (at least on the Rollins) is staggering, YSLs were just very flimsy with thin leather, I actually know some who had their rip on first wear. Quality-wise, the newer YSLs (Malibus) and these SLPs are just above and beyond better.

Also wore this.

SLP really, really looks like Stan Smith x Ankle Brace to me. I see what you mean about the cuff. Do they look terrible if you don't lace that bit?
post #18255 of 22223
I can see where the Stan Smiths in it for sure, it really does look like a high-end Stan Smith if I cover the ankle part with my jeans. Hard to explain but the SLPs is still sleeker and and less "puffy" if that makes sense? Stan Smiths just feels and looks bulky in comparison.

They do not look terrible if I just let the ankle part loose, I'd probably wear it more often that way, but the short ankle part kind of pushes the tongue out and with the tongue still being so stiff it gives more of that Adidas old school Run DMC with the tongue out look. I'd imagine it'll be better once the leather softens up.
