I can't blame them for trying to separate themselves from the Hypebeast crowd, which is what it looks like to me. Trying to "grow up" a bit in their designs.
The premium Achilles look to me more like something designed by someone who designs shoes, rather than something by two dudes with no experience with shoes making a simplistic ideal.
Though I am getting tired of the vintage soles for the simple fact that you can only have so many pairs of shoes with vintage soles.
