    Nah these are the Vans...the givenchy have around 500$ of tiny details that make em much more cool :) lol
    The givenchy don't have the white stitching, no little cloth tag, no red logo on the back of the sole...etc... havefull leather inside which I doubt the vans has...it's all a question of slickness guys!!! :p

    I do own the all black canvas slip ons tho, they're cool but they don't last very long. good for beater shoes!

    You can say what you want but you should know that :

    Some people appreciate quality objects. I've handled those slip on and the quality is beyond similar lower price models. Why do people pay 2000$ for a suit when you can have one that fit well for 200$ and most people won't even notice the difference...? because people like to buy quality. I'm trying to build a big enough rotation that my shoes are going to last basically forever. Have 12 pairs so far. It's been 5 years since I started. All shoes still look great!

    If you don't understand that I think you're not on the right forum man ;-) Everyone, at some point in their life spend stupid amount of cash on irrationnal things. To each his own. (My girlfriend parents go to disney world every year and they spend around 6k each time) Nobody's gonna tell me i'm fool for buying cool shoes once in a while heh ;-) If you don't like the shoes you could just ignore my post too you know!

    Have you considered Common Projects slip on? Very similar design for half the price. Do not tell me Givenchy quality is superior to CP.

    It's not even that you're paying a lot for slip ons...Its more the fact that Givenchy is extremely overpriced for what it is. A slip on van-style shoe shouldn't cost anywhere near $500, even a high quality one.

    Yea I also like the cp's but they don't have a full black version (not that I know of). There was a black with white elastic but they don't make em anymore I think. Simple all black on white sole is not that easy to find imo.


    I know givenchy is overpriced...those slip on were on sale couple weeks ago but I missed it. Usually I try to buy stuff on sale but with sizing and all it's not always possible.

    You are in the wrong forum. See your way to the "Non-baller sneaker thread" please.
