    was doing some research on the cure and noticed these sneakers RS wears in 1992 on a tour bus. They look just like RO but don't look like nikes. I confuse, but I like.

    looking further into this and I guess RS wore Reebok Freestyle Black Top's pretty religiously. They look close, however the tag on the tongue looks too much like RO

    balenciaga cotes high trainers. barney's recently put the blue colorway up for pre-order. i'm leaning towards the white though. several sizes of both are already sold out.

    The white on whites never even made it to SF Barney's btw. And they sold out of my size online during the pre-order phase last season.

    damnit...thanks, good to know. i was hoping to try them on in SF, but i went ahead and pulled the trigger on the white/white pre-order. i sized down 1 from my mmm GAT size, so hopefully they will fit.

    I'm not a big sneaker guy but I've been looking for a pair and I was very tempted by those white ones. Pretty sick

    Quick search and it seems like Balenciaga runs on the big side? I guess they don't even have my size anymore :/

    I still think it looks like a kids' line of glow-in-the-dark Asics designed by LEGO or something.

    Yeah, because they're cotton. $700 poplin sneakers.

    RO is a joke.

    Both are crummy sneakers .. don't like any of the Rafs sans all black.

    Black toe cap is heinous

    Picked up a pair of black lows from the new SLP collection (NY store has some pre-collection pieces). The leather feels great and they're beyond comfortable as a plus.
