They could have executed that puffy look on the strap another way.

Just did this with an old pair with crackle paint that I had lying around.

I'm sorry, but I'm just not buying this collection...

Dunno, just seemed like a fun experiment. The first layer is dark blue so hopefully the white will chip/peel off to something interesting underneath.

 

Don't want to derail this thread, but here's some more DIY pics (Click to show)

Btw, I wasn't mocking you in my last post, I was mocking the Converse x Margiela collection! I don't know if you took it that way, but sorry anyways lol.

Anyways, you pretty much replicated the Margiela Chucks in those pics. I tip my hat to you!

Yeah I gotchyou. I can see why some people might like it though.

 

In this pic the paint looks more like it's wood paint chips. 

Also, depending on how these things shed, I would hate to have to clean up after them.

judging from my painted gats, they are a pain in the ass when they shed. My desk at work was littered with little paint flakes.

Bought a pair of Butteros last night. Let's see how they compare to CPs...

Looks like a Saint Laurent high-top being eaten by a Balenciaga kraken.

I personally don't like these, but there's only one left in size US 10 for $215 on Yoox!

I saw that too.  Was impressed how expensive that white paint was.

I'd rather shell out another $250 and buy some Ann D chuck high tops on sale.
Still slapping myself for not picking them up from LN-CC at about $380.
