Smooth. Because they look like they came from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Are they suede?

How long of a shoelace would you need for that? Btw, don't like.

I would engage in sexual relations with George's mom on the popular yet defunct TV Show, Seinfeld, before I would engage in sexual relations with that footwear. I would also insert my [body part that is unique to males] into the void that is created by that three eyed thing's mouth in bam!s post. In other words, try some different shoes.

It's amazing the little "variations" that designers come up with to do to a classic item, then turn around and charge an arm and a leg for the item.

It's even more amazing that people would happily pay to have something with a designer label on it.


Stick with the original.

They look like something a kid would wear. These should not be worn by anyone after high school IMO.

There are likely sex therapists in your local yellow pages, hurting for business with the economy the way it is.

OP-stay far away from those shoes.....please.

They look good if that's the specific look you're going for. I vastly prefer the leather John Varvatos Chucks or the slip-on dark grey canvas ones.

spaceman- those look cool, man. Don't listen to the other fuddy duddies in this thread. They want you to look like a boring tool. Are they canvas or leather? I wouldn't mind having a beat to shit pair. Or maybe fuck around with dyeing/distressing. Fuck, i wish i didn't have white shoes already. maybe if i made them another color though (canvas should be easy to dye)



alex- I don't like those particular ones. The color is boring and don't like the idea of suede. I kinda like the black w/slightly yellowed midsole, or the cream colored ones. I'm down with the multi-lace chucks.
