The definitive SF-approved non-baller sneaker thread - Page 163

post #2431 of 2667
Lol not bumping about brown sneakers; but more because this is a great thread that has gone stale...
post #2432 of 2667


I love these Keds x Norse Projects but can't find them in stock in my size anywhere anymore. I'm looking for a nice, affordably priced sneaker for casual wear, preferably leather and preferably white. Ideas/suggestions? Common Projects are my dream but out of my budget. I don't really want Converse.



I loooove these too but don't think they're made anymore...

Reebok Classic leather. I"m feeling these. I'm going on Vacation soon and I need to get some classic white low tops. I'm feeling this guy

Meh. I used to wear the nylon/suede version in high school. Not really feeling them anymore...

They look a bit like something worn in a retirement home.

LOL... You guys are jokes. I think someone had brought up wanting plain white shoes but I can't seem to find it. Oh well.

These actually look pretty nice. I'm wondering about how comfortable they are.

I have the Kent Wang sneakers and I think they're pretty comfortable. IMO if you're between sizes you might want to size down and not up. I'm a TTS 8.5 and I got a 9, but I feel like I could have gotten away with an 8 for a better fit

They look pretty narrow though. I'm a euro 42. And I also wear a 42 for common projects as well.

Dunno :x my feet are pretty average width-wise or maybe even on the wide side, but I don' think the KWs are any narrower than my Pumas/Adidas/etc

 

Anyone have any experience with these?

Nice, have you seen them in stock anywhere at all? (any size)

I know it's a collab, but why don't they keep making them if they sell good?

I recently got a pair of Superga 2750 which were too big. Then I went a half size down from the big ones and now the left shoe is a bit tight in the toe section (left foot is bigger).

Will it stretch/get more room with wear?

Because exclusivity is part of their appeal. If Keds brought them back I'm sure a lot of people who got theirs the first time around would feel cheated. Especially when they're marketed as a capsule collection.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned these, but I just picked up a pair from Hickorees. For the last year or so, South Willard in LA was the only place to get these, but they were perpetually out of my size. Looks like people are starting to pay attention, as they're now available at Hickorees, Mohawk General Store, and Steven Alan. Anyways, made in Japan, hand sewn, fired in a kiln (not exactly sure what the benefits of that are, but there you go) comfortable, and a nice "natural" color that beats the standard Converse beige/off white by a mile and isn't too "brand new really white shoe" looking. $155 (is that non-baller attainable?)
