I'd be interested in reading an article-length version

Seconded

Thanks for the interest fellas, but when I say "comment" that's a legal term used for an "article/paper". It's 46 pages with 150+ footnotes and citations (some of which are Margiela and Kanye bitching about how he invented leather jogging pants! haha). I don't have a streamlined version.
However, if you are interested in fashion as it functions in a low IP regime particularly in the US, one of my professors wrote a book called The Knockoff Economy. Now I strongly disagree with some of his premises and rebutted more than a few of them in my paper, but it's a very interesting and accessible read… not a "law school book" (which is the equivalent of hitting yourself in the head with a ball-peen hammer).

I may be able to provide some links to published papers that are similar, but do not take into account recent legislation proposed by Senator Schumer (among others)... notably the DPPA and IDPPPA. PM me if interested.

Thanks for asking … apologies for non-sneaker related content!

Am I the only one who cannot digest those golden numbers on Achilles sneakers?

that why you get SLP SL/01

And what would be the general consensus regarding the ETQ Amsterdam and ACNE Studios sneakers? Are they worth the money?

I don't like the idea of spending a $700 on a pair of sneakers, so would be thankful if someone could suggest a clean/classic style of sneakers similar to the ETQ, ACNE or Santoni? Am I missing something?

Which Acnes are you talking about? Adrians or the new season velcro one

You can purchase all the above brands for under $180 USD each (on sale).

Just get some alcohol/acetone and take the numbers off.

I was referring to the Adrian as a style I like. I was wondering if there's any other brand making the similar style? ETQ, Acne and Santoni are what looks cool and decently priced to me. (Average of $300). Buttero is also interesting, but I don't like the lacing area and a proportion of a cap toe. So, if you could suggest any other brand making the similar styles I would be thankful.

Is this really possible? Basically those numbers are all that kept me off from getting these. Can they be removed without damaging the leather?

post #23143 of 23596

Yes, just do it gently so you dont take off the white paint. Ill upload a picture later.

Not sure how baller they are individually, but as a whole, the entire Jordan collection gifted to Kobe for his retirement seems pretty cool.
