Any nice white canvas low tops out there? Should be some deals on remaining stock as we move into winter.

Had some Onitsuka Tigers that have worn out and are no longer sold.

@otc if you're still looking, Tretorn is having a tent sale. $25 for canvas shoes.

Thanks
How is their sizing? I like some of these
post #2689 of 2697
I wear my Brannock size in Nylites (9.5) w/ loafer socks or sockless. I wear 9D in most dress shoes and 10 in most other sneakers. I don't have anything other than Nylites, though. Not sure how consistent they are between styles.

Since I am not familiar with sneakers so much I need your opinions. Perhaps some photos will attract your attention?CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

Would these be as good quality as CP?

Also, comparing these to other sneakers including from CPs, they seemed to be a bit bulky, do you agree? Would you say they are not sleek enough?
post #2693 of 2697
Quality is probably the same, the only thing that seems different is the sock liner. I like the off white of the PS better than all white CP's though. They seem to be on the same margom sole so they will be as sleek as trainers can be really.

Sorry, if they have been discussed, but are there any thoughts on the Frank & Oak minimalist sneaker line? The shoes look clean online and have a decent profile, price would be right too, but I'm always skeptical of quality and consistency with their brand.

In case context matters, I'm not a "sneaker guy". Typically boots in winter, oxfords or cheap canvas sneakers in summer. I do feel like a decent pair of simplistic leather sneakers is missing from my lineup, but honestly cannot justify spending over $200 or so on them.

When I tried them last summer they were worse than a pair of Adidas.  Sloppily stitched on sole, stitching on the uppers jumped out of place onto the toebox, the thick 'tack' stitches were tearing the leather, the white coating was already chipping off before wear and they didn't come with waxed laces as advertised at the time.  Maybe things have improved since then, but looking at the item page now it just looks like they've removed a few of the 'luxury sneaker' claims.

 

Honestly just go with epaulet or cp.

Thanks! Appreciate the suggestions too. I think that I'm actually going to try the Gustin ones... They seem to check all the boxes that I'm looking for:

This Adidas Hamburg will be released in June. I'm probably too old for such shoes but already preorded.
