***Finally an Official Baller sneaker thread ($300 minimum)*** - Page 1326

They are a first string model, not the regular $50 chucks. Not saying they are worth the retail price, but what designer sneaker is?

Plain first strings seem to be $100-$150 and really hard to find in standard colors.

Why doesn't anyone cry about the Missoni Chucks being $200? I don't get why this is such a big deal.

It'd be much better if they were both made like the even higher Converse Addict line with vibram made soles
-although googling now those look pretty much like the first strings. I don't fkn know

They are Converse 1970's for the chucks and the purcells are well...just purcells. The normal 1970's first string chucks are around $72 for the lows and $77 for the highs. Add in paint cost and leather lining....there's no way $250 even comes close to making relative sense. I just wish it was a bit more inventive. They could've constructed the uppers in army patches or leather jacket panels (and it could've even been made to look that way and not actually sourced from vintage pieces) and that would be at least a step in the right direction.

Always wanted these mids probably ever since this thread started, so I finally got myself a pair.

^ good buy

They're my go-to GATs. I wear them more than lows. Really like the retro shape.
post #19882 of 21992
I always preferred the mids to lows, for some weird happenstance, I got two pairs of lows first.

sometimes groupthink is right.

this is not one of these times smile.gif

Just got these GATs from stick today and I've been messing around with the lacing since I got them. Can't decide which I like better.

Bars or regular lacing?

Whatever is on the right in the pic.

Mids are good if you're only going to wear them with long pants and don't plan to tuck them.

I think it looks good with cropped pants/rolled jeans as well.

The mids are cool; the white paint splattered ones are my favorites. Wish I could get my hands on a pair!



Also, what do you guys think about these Margiela high tops? I didn't really like them at first, but they've been growing on me lately...
