lol they have the same fucking patterning and profile. SLP version is admittedly nicer but I don't know if it's $550 nicer.

Paul smith sneakers:
are they the same?
The leather on cheap white sneakers starts to look like shit really quickly. That's a big reason. That said I think there are some cheaper sneakers that look really good.
Especially since so many of the 'baller' sneakers are based off of the designs of iconic mainstream sneakers. I've honestly never found the appeal of construction to be a big factor - like most here, I have 6-7 pairs of shoes I rotate through fairly regularly and minimizes the wear on any one in particular. Between that and an office job even a pair of Toms would probably last three or four years. They can be glued together so long as they're aesthetically pleasing and I'd buy them.
No disagreement there. If I came off as snarky I apologize.
