    Buzz Rickson & William Gibson Athletic Shoes

    William Gibson, always the fan of a faceless and logo-less product that exceeds all expectations; something timeless and classic that most across the world can relate to. Last week we brought you William Gibson's Head Porter bags, and this week we've got his new line of Athletic Shoes.
    . . .

    There are labels and logos all over the outside of both pairs of shoes and the bag.

    fail argument. levis do not look like flatheads. go fuck yourself and get a brain.
    Why do you always post nothing but crap full of extremely tired internet humor crap like "FAIL" or everything else I see you post? That "hey I'm a wacky internet dude and I post what I want where I want!!!!" attitude may be acceptable on 4chan or wherever you're from but doing that anywhere else makes you seem like an asshole nerd, not the cool dude who gives no fuck that you think you're coming off as. Not sure why I'm even saying anything because all you're going to do is spout some terrible comeback or turnaround burn maybe including "teh" or "fail". EDIT: Sorry for shitting on your thread Kiya, those bags look cool and it's hilarious to me that william gibson would somehow end up collaborating with buzz rickson. Also before I yelled at the dude with the clown avatar I was going to comment on the logoes as dopey said, not that they're bad it's just kinda funny considering the pretext of the no logo thing [​IMG]

    I doubt there is more then one way to make a pair of shoes.


    You are a complete moron.
    Enjoy your time here, it won't be long.

    Really awesome. I wish I could afford to drop that kind of coin on sneakers at the moment.

    Seriously?

    And to Kiya- I've seen pictures of some other Buzz Rickson stuff that looks just phenomenal, will you ever be carrying their outerwear, especially the USN jackets?

    Yup, last season we had half the line but we never put any of it online.. This season we're putting some of it online. We'll have the black M65 in two weeks.. we'll have the Navy peacoat from Buzz Rickson on friday, we'll have the gloves next week, MA-1 in November, and more..

    hai buddy. everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    Are you sure? Because saying you could care less about what I think means you care a bit whereas the phrase "couldn't care less what you think" might have been what you were looking for to make it seem like you're the cool ass dude who doesn't give no fuck.

    Listen - there are plenty of reasons people like these. There are also plenty of reasons people may object to them. Me, my main problem with expensive kicks (for me, that is $150+) is that I don't feel as comfortable just banging them up, and this can translate into selfconsciousness, which, for me, is the opposite of being stylish. Your mileage may vary. And you may have perfectly legitimate reasons for disliking these sneakers, though your posts betray a great deal of ignorance. For one thing, there are many, many ways to make a shoe, sneaker or otherwise.

    All this notwithstanding, it's asshole behavior to post in a thread just to shit on someone. Maybe you have a great point to make that is not complimentary to the subject matter. That is fine. But you don't seem to have anything worthwhile for discussion. If you do, please, by all means, continue. If not, c'mon man, no need to be a dick.

    Why buy from Japanese companies when you can shop at Walmart?
