Also I think it's pretty amusing that they changed the gold letters to black, call that exclusive, and up charge 150 pounds MORE for an otherwise bog standard cp Achilles. That's some expensive black paint right there.

 

I'm seeing these at $435, which isn't that much higher than what US stores charge. CPs always at $400+ at retail nowadays (praise the sneaker gods for

 EU stores)

But yeah, the "exclusive" nature of these is lightweight to say the least

Is Seoul expensive? Tokyo is cheap as hell

I mostly buy my stuff local anyways as I'm willing to pay extra for the nice service rather than shopping sales

Tokyo is cheap as hell!!??? C'mon, factoring everything that just can't be true. I know rent is relatively reasonable but then apts are so small and construction shoddy and ugly for the most part.

it's because you're on the east coast, @baltimoron. affordable ayce kbbq is a west coast phenomenon. the cost of beef is significantly cheaper out west, making ayce kbbqs much more viable.

Makes sense, I don't even think ayce kbbq exists in Boston.

You're like the second person ever I seen use this phrase. The other was a religious listener of the Ricky Gervais podcast.

As soon as they reformat the show to appeal to the three year old fairy princess demographic, I'm all in.

There's nothing at all wrong with "bog-standard."

"I seen," on the other hand ...

I didn't say that there was anything wrong with it. It's just not a bog standard expression in the U.S. is all.
