    What do you guys think of the new A.P.C. + Nike shoes?

    I think the simple lines and classic styling look great with a modern 'swoosh'.

    I'd buy it without or with a very small swoosh. I was actually searching for something like this a few minutes ago. Who makes one like this but without any branding? Looking for white.

    I think they look similar to Adidas shoes

    I kinda sorta liked em in black. The swoosh seems sort of antithetical to APC's aesthetic, but whatever. In white, they look like nurse shoes, in black like ref/chem teacher shoes.

    I like them, swoosh and all. I think that in this case, the swoosh detail works very well, and is understated without being timid (as I think a smaller swoosh would be). The line is good, and the design is simple, but with some interesting details (the stitching and shape actually remind me more of old K Swiss shoes rather than the Stan Smith.) If I weren't saving up for some of the Steven Alan Dill sneakers, I might have been (more) tempted to pick these up.

    IMO, the swoosh creates a "generic shoe from Footlocker" kind of feel. Don't really like the side "ribbing" as well.

    yeah, alot like the sb classics, but more expensive and not quite as nice. the only problem with the sb are the fat tongue, but you can always take out the padding to make them look slimmer. [​IMG] those are the sb. right around 50 or 60$

    edit: these pics are huge. I guess its pretty easy to see that these have been both skated in and worn with raw denim...sf will be proud.

    The Nike logo is everywhere. Why the hell would I pay APC money to have it on my shoes?

    The A.P.C.s are pretty fly but a little plain. It just looks like it's missing something. I have Stan's in the white-green, and I think they look just as nice for less money.
