1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Is there a poor man's version that is close to the design? Specifically the Achilles low in white.

    Sorry if this has been answered before, a search didn't bring any relevant thread titles up.

    I've only seen them in canvas so far; I own a pair in blue and unfortunately they are a bit too wide for me. Also, they are a little chunky - aren't CPs sleeker?

    Some Keds look decent and like CPs are based on classic sneaker designs

    But there is no cheap CP alternative that is rendered in luxe leather and designed w/ the careful restraint such as CPs are. if there were such a thing, CPs would have no market

    Is there a specific shoe it is based on?

    There is none as synthetic leather will look like utter shit within months. Not even those Addidas listed below looked all that great. Profile was not where near as nice.

    Supergas in leather are pretty sleek. They are wide for me too though.

    I figured :confused:


    Thanks, those look really good.


    Which is a shame - it's a fine looking shoe.

    I thought Achilles were actually based on OG One Stars?
