Hit and miss but most lately well inferior, especially those ones.

Mall brands actually make plenty of shoes in that styling these days and the quality is probably the same.

I have my eyes on 3 pairs of MMM Gats right now and the only thing keeping me from buying them are finding my size and finding them for a reasonable price (300 USD).

I just bought two pairs of common project achilles (solid white leather and a navy suede) should I return?

I do not care about "looking rich" I just want something without obvious labels, of quality construction, low top, and "conservative". Sneakers are NOT my thing but I want a few pairs (3-5) for walking around campus

Thanks for the help.

margiela gats quality is ok but it's not the big draw in a sneaker anyway. CPs quality is better.
Either way doesn't matter too much with sneakers.

Buying 3-5 pairs of low sneakers is a bit of a waste IMO but we may have different priorities.

yeah, i didn't notice the soles until you mentioned them. i actually liked the sleekness, but i couldn't see myself wearing them more than the other stuff i have, so i passed on it before i went to sleep. thanks for stopping me from making a dumb mistake lol

I like those n(n).

 

Caltex, why do you think you need 3-5 pairs of sneakers for walking around campus?  That's nuts.  Get one pair you really like, or, at most, two, and wear the hell out of them.  Spend the rest of something cooler.  You're just gonna end up favoring one or two and the others will sit in the closet anyway.

Objectives 1) Spend my nice little chunk of store credit 2) Purchase brown shoes to be worn mostly casually but that can double in slightly dressier situations

 

The choices:

 

 

Grenson Kirk - Tan Suede

Grenson Dylan - Tan

Grenson Tom - Brown Suede

Grenson Jasper - Brown

Recommendations?

The top two Grensons are probably better as the leathers are lighter, making it easier to match with jeans, which are what I assume you would be wearing in a "casual" situation.

All very nice options. I say go with your personal preference, as you can't really go wrong with any of those. That said, I'd go with one of the top two lighter browns. I'd get the tan suede.

 

Buy them all?

I like those. Seeing as how it's the Japanese market, is it safe to assume that the sizes are small and the prices are insane? smile.gif

laugh.gif I'd say the last one is the easiest to dress up (with different laces), but the top one is maybe the most versatile. I kind of like the second one, but IDK if it's going to work with as wide a range of fits as the first one.

+1 on the top pair being the most versatile of the four.

Currently I don't own a pair of suede oxfords. Would these be too warm for summer time as opposed to the tan brogues?

3sixteen jeans...how do they compare, to say Dior Homme or some of the other Japanese stuff?  Are they worth the 240?
