I'll probably get them though, I like the way they look, plus they are different than most of the sneakers I see lately, and I already did the whole thick, chunky, basketball Nike (or other company) style look. Now, I'm more into Motorsport-style, streamlined design.
Funny, my preference has sort of been in the opposite direction. I was really into the Speedcat style shoes when they first came out, and found that they looked really good with peg legg style jeans. However, recently I've been moving towards a looser style of jeans - either like the APC "English: style jean or a full leg bootcut like the Paper Denim LTD, and I find that a rounder toe, chunkier sneaker balances out the look more. Plus, I like the idea of chasing down the Nike Quickstrikes - and most of those are in basketball models like the Dunk or AF1. Ultimately, though, I think that middle of the road sneakers the Adidas Sambas or Reebok Supercourts, that don't try too hard, are the most versatile model. BTW, I think that a fuller cut, less pronounced bootcut and a fuller legged straightleg jean in darker, less distressed washes are going to be more and more popular. Hopefully, the waistline will remain relatively low (the APC English style has a perfect medium low waistline).
