Tucked in and it doesn't seem too bulky.


Same with the boat shoes (yes I was wearing the same jeans). I just hate the laces on these, need to change em up.


Hmm. Define "that chunky."

I have my definition but I was just replying to this response:

I assumed he/they meant "clunky" or "not slim" and that is why I put them in qoutes. And to me, I do not find my pairs particularly "chunky".

Except they're way cooler looking than Nike Vandals. Would rock that pair or an all white.

RFX - As nice as they are, they do seem to have a wide/chunkier sole bottom, at least for my tastes. I'm not sure if they are as or thicker than Spring Courts, but I know I own some Spring Courts that might be as thick in the sole as Lanvins that I only wear with shorts or jeans with a bit wider leg openings. I just prefer slimmer profiled sneaks and less sole thickness.

Robert - I can get down with Chucks, but they certainly aren't the end all/be all. I despise Jack Purcells though. I hate the goofy toe box.

Yeah I guess the midsole is a bit thicker than usual but overall, the whole shape and uppers is somewhat low profile. I have slimmer/low profile alternatives, which I might eventually post here, even if it is a non-SF approved label.

OK, I will relent on my sneaker Nazism. I am willing to concede that there may be other viable choices.

Oh my god how did this thread go to shit so fast.

Does anyone else feel like these sneakers were a good idea with bad execution? The laced backs look pretty ballin' imo, but the shape of them just looks... horribly horribly wrong

post #42 of 21239
I'm not feeling the laces actually and the overall shape reminds me Creative Recreation. I like most of Dior Homme's silhouette though. Something about how they use grey just makes them look good to me.
