    you have rafs?

    dlester: post pics. im curious. your style seems pretty plain/business casual (albeit with nice pieces), and i wonder how well astros mesh.

    dunno looks fine to me then again I think astronauts are pretty cool

    I have lots of black boots now so I don't think I'll be wearing them anywhere near as much though. Don't really like sneakers as much these days.

    Had I gotten the metallic bronze nutsacks off of ebay, I'd have definitely worn them on tour with the band.

    sounds like a challenge -- I will see what I can come up with. :)
    I will find an old pic or post something in waywt soon. I wear them fairly often actually; great sneakers.
    those are amazing.

    Anybody see the black Raf hi-tops they had on Gilt today (they were hidden in some "get the look" sale, or something like that). Way too rich for my blood at around $460, but some genuinely great-looking sneakers.

    I would love to buy a pair of rafstros if a black and white color variation were available. It is a great sneaker with a refined look...what might be the hindrance in wearing them? I admit some colorways can be a bit off from my taste. But, I am sure others can pull them off. Then, there are those coloways best suitable for space travel.
