    still bobos? wtf are you saying. They're made in the same factory as lanvin just have a different sole so yes they are baller and i'm 99% sure you have never handled a pair.

    You know. Bobos, they make your feet feel fine. Bobos, they're just a dollar ninety-nine.

    You're correct, I haven't handled those particular sneakers. However, I have owned and still own a lot of sneakers, several of which are probably made in the same factory as those. While they cost more than say.............Nike, Puma, or Adidas, I don't consider many of them to be "Baller."

    My Common Projects Tournaments are a prime example. Great construction, materials, overall quality, but still not what I consider "Baller."

    So what constitutes "Baller" to me? Construction? Materials? Price? Exclusivity? I can't really put my finger on it. But when I see it, I know. And when I look at those green sneakers, "NOT BALLER" is what pops up in my mind.

    Lol CP's aren't baller? Why because they are nothing too out there/different? What about Saint Laurent? If you say the latter are baller you are full of shit.

    That's right. I don't consider my Common Projects TOURNAMENTS to be baller, My Achilles? My cap toes? My BBALLs? Maybe.

    What constitutes a particular sneaker to be "Baller" to you Pro?

    You seem to be taking a tongue in cheek term way too seriously...

    I have one, but it didn't go through there either... not sure what was up. Didn't have the time to keep trying, so just selected bank account and it worked. Replacing my white achilles, boring cop, but these things were getting worn down so $260 to have a pair ready for backup is a decent deal.

    For the highs and mids for CPs do all of them fit similarly? I bought the burgundy Tournament Highs from Yoox to see and can't really get my foot in unless I loosen up laces a crazy amount. Then when I tighten the laces are about 4 eyelets short? Kinda want the white original vintage high but if it's anything like the Tournament it's not going to work
