I got my McNairys for $40 from Amazon, and was thinking about buying two pairs in different colors because they looked good on the website and they were cheap, but after trying them in person, I think I wouldn't shell out for more than one pair. They're not as comfortable as my GATs or even my CPs.

Would you ever wear these with the tongue down?  What with?

Adidas All Stars
Converse Jack Purcell
Nike All Court.

That should pretty much cover things.
You're weird, and the beer in your avatar is terrible.

So you'd wear one of each? Or would you wear one pair on your hands and the other on your feet?

Jeans with massive cuffs, a white t-shirt with some obnoxious multi-color neon graphic, a backpack, and a 59Fifty.

And no, I wouldn't wear those ever, regardless of how the tongue was positioned.

Because of the teal?  Or something else?

post #1972 of 2667
I'm not crazy about the teal or the stitching on the sides, and I think the sole on PF Flyers can be a little too thick. Also, I'm not crazy about the way the toebox looks. Mostly, though, I think the tongue thing is kinda silly, and there's no reason to wear something that's specifically designed to feature a detail that you dislike.

Sorry if this belongs more in the "ultimate noob" thread, but I'm looking to buy a pair of white sneakers and a pair of black sneakers (leaning toward high-tops). After looking through this thread these are what I've come up with.  Any thoughts/suggestions/alternatives?

 

White:

This is what I'm most inclined towards atm.  SUS $100

Doucal's $142

WESC Clopton $99

edit: ^^^that pair of Puma x Undefeated also look nice, but I wonder how much that yellow decal stands out.

 

Black:

Converse All Star Cup $70  I wish these had a little something happening on the sides.

Pro-Keds Royal Plus hi leather $100.  Not a fan of the stripe or the blue label, but I like everything else.

Ransom x Adidas: Haven't been able to actually find these for sale.  They are FW 2010, and I can't tell if they have blue soles (which I don't want) like the image posted earlier in the thread.

There were also a pair of Van OTWs that caught my eye, but I seem to have forgotten the details and I'm not finding them with the search feature.

^^ I own the first two pairs.

The first GAT look-a-likes are actually pretty decent quality. very comfortable. they run tts, though slightly on the larger side, I'd say. would definitely recommend.

The Doucal's are of mazing quality. pretty comparable to CP's, imo, in both, style and durability. these run slightly larger, but since they dont make half sizes I'd suggest to size down one. I own two pairs now.

Both brands are made in Italy. very happy with their sneaks so far.
post #1976 of 2667
^So would you suggest to get the doucals in the same size as my cp's?
post #1977 of 2667
Yes. They're also not as narrow as cp's.
post #1978 of 2667
Top two on the white are both good choices. I'd go with the SUS and switch out for white laces. Among the blacks, Pro-Keds Royal Plus hi leather but the more i see that little black strip on the sole, the more it bothers me..
