    I wasn't going to post anything but I looked at these again. The first one you've had looks like you paint houses for a living and the second one looks like a hipster painter who wants everyone to know he's an 'artist'. I'm not gonna preach to you, but this faux-birdshit drives me nuts.

    If you can't tell I think all 'regular' distressed clothing is wrong.

    hoodyear or anyone else,

    I've never been a runner and have never even worn a pair of running shoes. Can they be worn as regular street shoes or is the fit too awkward for regular walking?

    If you want something for casual wear and training, get some Flyknits. Personally though I find I only wear my performance shoes for working out most of the time. Flyknits look okay in the right context but I find GATs or CPs or even just Chucks or something usually end up looking better.

    Edit: I may have misread the question. Yeah, a lot of people wear Nike running shoes as casual shoes and never work out in them. If you like how they look, go for it. Also, please drop the painted MMM talk already :/

    I agree with Chet. Flyknits look good with workout/athletic clothes but not as nice in streetwear outfits. I feel the lunar 1 soles don't work as well in streetwear outfits as the trainer or even the racer sole.

    Good advice the flyknits are too sporty for streetwear. Chetb, I'll drop the MMM hate here, but did you request since it's off-topic or you own a pair yourself?

    Yeah, I like them worn casually with sweats or with cropped pants. They always look suboptimal to me otherwise in casual fits.

    I didn't say it doesn't work. I feel other shoes look better. The black flyknit trainers look good with regular clothes but I haven't really seen too many good lunar 1s fits. Almost all the ones i see are boring and generic.

    Do you have any good pics?

    Lunar1s look fine with streetwear. Flyknits look even better.

    Two of those are the non-flyknit lunar things, but you get the idea.

    I wouldn't they say they shrink a lot, but inconsistent is how I would describe it. Some of my compression shirts/pants fit shorter than others, and they are all the same styles and washed in the same manner.

    Yeah, I read about this a day or two back. Would be interesting to see how the resell is. I can't see any Adidas going for what the Nike Yeezy's are going for on the secondary market. I wonder if he will still continue to wear Nikes and Jordans or not as well.

    I feel like he's only been wearing FBTs for about the last 6 months. Doubt that changes until he as a new adidas prototype to start wearing around.

    Nike limited him to something like 30 SKU's and didn't offer royalties.
