Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2805
An official Diniro endorsement, can't ask for much more than that
Will probably almost always wear these with either one of my three pairs of black oversized shorts (lol), which makes the white ones a pretty easy choice for me.
Pretty sure you have a way larger collection of non-black pants/shorts than me though so you'd probably be able to wear the black ones really well.
I don't suppose you've seen them in person and know how they fit? (ie tts or up/down)
edit: got them for a good price in us9, will report back whether it worked out or if I'll need a us10

do you think you need it? how often will you wear it? what can you pair it with? these are the questions you should ask yourself. as for the geos themselves, i don't think they're necessarily a bad purchase, but tbh, i feel like you'll end up with buyer's remorse at the end of the day.
Yeah, these are always the questions at hand.
- Do I need them? Hell no. I feel pretty comfortable saying I don't need anything else at this point (barring some sort of business or formal thing where I can't cobble something together).
- What can I pair them with? This is actually a pretty easy one. To some extent they're just sneakers, so I can wear them with a lot of things I'd wear sneakers with as long as I recognize that they're about as chunky and extreme as sneakers get. Tucking black or grey jeans with a slim leg opening (19 cm, Big John tapered fit, &c.) is pretty straightforward provided I've got a looser tee or tank to balance them out (probably a leather jacket when it's cold enough). I also have a pair or two of pants I could crop below the knee that I think would work. Just about any sweats with at least some level of drop to the crotch would be fine, either cropped or just tapered enough to tuck. The main thing I'm not sure of is whether they'd work without a tuck with black or grey jeans that have a wider leg opening. I think I'd have to try them on in order to figure that out.
- How often will I wear them? That's the crux of the matter and frankly, I don't know. Sometimes it's hard to tell which shoes I'm going to reach for most often and which ones are going to sit unworn most of the time. All the time because I think they're awesome? Less of the time because I'd have to put more thought and effort into what I'm going to wear with them? I'm really not sure.
To be fair, though, do I really pair much of anything well? Half the time I'm wearing LVC 501s with Guidi back-zips.
I kind of hate reselling.
Anyway, I think I talked myself out of them, or at least the murdered-out ones. I might still consider black with white sole or black & white paneled, but I don't think all-black is the way to go on these.
geos are pretty comfy to wear and you can wear them in place of black timbs in most outfits, but I find they're so played out and ubiquitous that I can't look at them anymore (in real life and on internet). maybe if they were all white and you got them really dirty
so what does broken paper mache look like? I have the old painted GATs and am fine with the cracked paint there, but paper might be different; plus they're boots
