Yes, they have leather soles (and nails).... People calling these balenciagas are joking right?
***Finally an Official Baller sneaker thread ($300 minimum)*** - Page 1331
Styles mentioned in this thread:
If you stated $300 minimum for a pair of quality sneakers, I guess you assumed two things:
1 - traditional marketing channels (see my previous post)
2 - leather sneakers
How about canvas?
Are they baller/quality enough?
Kojima Genes, a lesser known Japanese brand, with your favorite Italian soles again? See also previous post regarding my question about the soles.
Not much options regarding size. Would love to see these in high tops. (Worth checking out their denim, too.)
National Standard "Fine Independent Brand" (their definition)
Is this your favorite Italian sole? What is the latest word on where it is produced, which sneaker companies utilize it and at what price points can you buy the various versions?
May be too cheap for you, since they use a different business model (a la Gustin & Unbranded for jeans):
And, you will have guessed, National Standard do not have the marketing budgets of brands such as Lanvin and Common Project. You pay for the real product not the commercials
Bonus article on how to wear ANY sneakers.
Commercials pay for themselves, if they didn't marketing wouldn't be a thing.
Saying "we spend our money on our product not our marketing" is a marketing ploy.
Wouldn't be a thing...
It is not exclusive, not the only way. I mean traditional channels, wholesale, retail, advertising, glossy magazine covers, most expensive real estates in cities, stars, models, etc. Sure you can call non-marketing (in the traditional way) a kind of marketing too. Anyways, it has a name: guerrilla marketing.
