Those are the best pics I've seen of them so far. I'm hoping that some other online retailers get them in.

You get used to the bar lacing. You can't just loosen the shoe like normal where you pull the two sides apart. Instead take the side with the lace that's looped and undo it some for 2-3 loops, leaving one side normal length and the other very short.

i'll try to take a fit pic later this weekend or next week. some pics after unboxing:

the construction and quality are both excellent. really comfy too. sizing down one from my GAT size was spot on.

They look really nice but I'm kinda dissapointed that they are more beige than white like in the other pictures we saw. As far as the laces go I find it a bit weird and I think you should try a few other lacing patterns.

i have a few pairs of carminas that i've bar laced, but i don't have to loosen them as much since they're not boots/hightops.

took a quick iphone fit pic:

I´m seeing great improvement in this thread. From so much crap to some great looking sneakers.

I didn't realize Stan smiths were discontinued until 2015.
