Trainers in general aren't my thing. If I'm wearing athletic shoes it's because I'm running or hiking, and these don't seem appropriate for either.

^ Glad I'm not the only one.  By far the ugliest thing I've ever seen Gustin do.  I shuddered as I viewed the taupe ones.  They offend me somehow.  But I admit I'm not really a sneaker guy so much.  But... ugh...

Trainers... Blahhhhhhhhh

Guess what arrived in the mail yesterday? Haven't ever seen anyone else post them up. I could understand Gustin not going with contrast stitching, but then again they are much darker in reality than the site photos. Time and fade will tell...

^ Which are these?

Ask and I receive!  A few hours after asking for a western the short sleeve versions appear in the stock store.  Nice!  I wish someone would give me 47 million dollars.

I was interested in the Taupes from the teaser shot. Didn't realize the taupe suede shown in the pic was all the taupe suede on the shoe. Who even designed these things.

They're ugly. For the price point buy some MiUSA NB instead

Yeah they could have been better.  New balance definitely aren't an option for me though, I'm not into the big N on the sides.  I'll stick with other models for now.  Plenty of other brands with a better looking trainer at the moment.  The excessive perforations are the deal breaker for me.

^ looks good, but I like the sketch on the iPad even more!

^ Hahaha, thanks! Believe it or not, I drew that over 20 years ago, and just uploaded it to the Pro to mess around with it!

Hard pass. Cop some NBs instead.
I actually really like the toe shape and the quality of the materials must be pretty good. New balance toe shape is much too round for me on most models

People not from the south can't be friendly?

When I first tried these on, they seemed bit tight, however after half a day of wear they loosened up. Granted I like my shorts on the snugger side, the very definition of an ill-fitting short for me would be flared out legs so your results may vary. Looking at the pictures i noticed the whiskers around the crotch and had to ask my girlfriend if the shorts came across as too tight, but she didn’t even notice so that’s good enough for me. The length is perfect where they naturally fall as well.
 
The fabric is definitely A+ for what I’m used to. They have almost a silky smooth feel to them without feeling sheer. All the stitching and construction seems strong as far as I can tell. No Loose threads or obvious mistakes. Buttoning/unbuttoning the back pocket is a bit difficult, but I’m going to chalk that up to my lack of dexterity vs. a flaw in the shorts. 
 
The only other shorts I own are a pair of Levi’s Commuters, various cut off’s and an H&M pair. The H&M shorts would be the closest analogue to the Gustin’s and after wearing them around for a few days. I think the price hike for the better material is definitely worth it. So long as they stand the test of time.

 


There is a lot of whiskering on the front and back. I'd say those shorts can barely contain your package or rear end. They are struggling to avoid bursting.

No wonder your GF is happy with them. smile.gif

I think they should lie smooth when you are standing, without fabric stretching that is indicated by the whiskers in your photos.

I agree that the perforations are excessive. Not sure if that's a deal breaker for me or not. But definitely less than ideal.

I think the shape and other styling are decent to good.

I dislike the two color combo versions, particularly because the color choices don't look good. But the all blue is nice. I think I'd like it better if the sole were a shade of blue or something with less contrast instead of bright white.

I'm not sure the idea of an athletic training shoe built of high end materials makes a lot of sense or fits into my wardrobe. If I'm really "training" I'd probably go for some high tech lightweight thing made of super breathable synthetic mesh and springy foam. Nice Italian leather and Italian construction? Not sure it makes sense unless it's not actually intended for training but instead to look like it's an athletic shoe when actually it's more of a fashion statement.
