Great sneakers, thebrownman! I've been looking at entering the sneaker game myself. I think they might be a good balance between comfort + style when travelling around Europe for a few months. JCrew and UrbanOutfitters have some great ones for sale with free shipping to Aus.
What kind of outfits do you guys pair your sneakers with? Are New Balance and/or Nike vintage sneakers good in terms of cushioning and support? Vans are pretty hopeless when it comes to comfort.
I had pay for shipping on both of mine, which is a bit annoying, but I still saved money off Australian RRPs. Some vintage sneakers suck in terms of cushioning and support, often because they're made as replicas of what was sold at the time and so the features just aren't there.
