Thread Starter 
Anyone spotted those grey, suede low-tops yet? I knead. My quest is for them, perforated black and white lows and a pair of desert boots, which color I haven't decided.

^ If you can afford CP, you can afford a foot reduction surgery.









Just kidding.

Size 45 or 46 will work.

Am I the only one that thinks the black chukkas would look just as dope as the greys when seen in real life or pictured at the same angle?

After seeing the greys here I think there's a lot to be said about camera angle. Although I must admit they look pretty awesome at that angle too. I'd cop the greys but I don't have any light/grey denim to go with them and with the blacks the indigo stains wouldn't be as big an issue.

I think that the contrast of the greys with darker indigo would look much more dramatic and interesting. Also, the greys would work with both warm and cool colors.

The chukkas are so cash...money is the thing

Indigo stains really aren't a concern. Remember that the indigo that rubs off on the jeans is just excess indigo. Kind of like dead skin cells. Any half-decent shoe cleaner - or for that matter, a rubber eraser - will do fine to remove the indigo from the shoes.

Suedes are a slightly different matter because obviously you can't use the water-based leather cleaners on them, but iirc suede cleaner cleans it off really well.

I used to love the grey shoes, but something about them turns me off a little, and I can't figure what it is about them that feels kind of bland. My tastes might be shaped quite a bit by my current surroundings, though, which is a drastic difference from US style.

My personal ranking of favorites would be:

White leather perfs, quite possibly the best looking sneakers I think I've seen in some time:


Black suede/leather shell toes:


Brown dress slip-ons:


Blue leather lows:

chrono mentioned these shoes running a bit big...I am a 12 in most everything, shoe conversion sites say that I would wear a 46 then? Was wondering if anyone thought that was right or what, as I am heavily considering the grey chukkas.
post #45 of 344
I purchased a pair of high tops that were 44 and i'm a 10.5 true to size and they were certainly too big. Probably better for an 11.5. A 45 wouldn't be too small on you. What size do you wear in chucks? I'd say CP fits close to chucks.
