^I wouldn't. My friend has a pair of blue Gazelles and they look kind of like bowling shoes/generally retro in a bad way in person. Nike blazers are nice if you can get them in simple colorways. If you're feeling a little spendy, the APC x Nike looks really nice.
I honestly don't think a garishly colored lining/sole adds much interest, but to each, his own. Chrispy, the hoodie looks like a cool piece, but I feel like B.Son is one of those brands that seems really awesome on the internet and then just looks silly/fad-ish in person.
That's one of the reason I like Vans so much, though - those litttle touches add some flav. I thought about copping a pair of those white/pink jawnz.
And I sort of disagree on B.Son; if you own or are planning to buy at least a couple other hoodies with unique features it's a nice addition. If you've got a closet full of AA or even W+H and then you have you're one crazy steez hoody, it doesn't work as well. Does that make any sense?
You'll like that bson piece infinitely less in person after wearing it once or twice. I'm all for cool impact type pieces, but i'm speaking from experience with bson here. The fabric and fit are pretty nice though.
Hey Chrono, how is your teaching related clothing transformation coming along? Im hoping to be accepted to a grad school (for a doctoral degree) position soon, and am starting to wonder how much of the weirder/vintage/"rugged" stuff Ill have to phase out at work...
