    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    For under $300 I like Zespa. They have them at END, Spring, and a couple other places for $285-$312

    EDIT - you said suede or nubuck, my mistake. Not sure if they have white in nubuck or suede -- SSENSE has the nubuck MMM GATs on sale, not sure on price after discount

    Do MMM Gat's run the same size in low tops as they do high tops? I wear a 45 in the lows but I didn't know if the velcro strap high tops were roomier and I could get away with a 44. I'm a 44 common projects, 45 lowtop GAT, 11 sperry, pretty much 11 everything except MMM.

    Would love to get some opinions/feedback, in the market for some SLP SL/10 high tops.

    I went ahead and purchases the black, croc-embossed leather ones:

    I may be having some buyer's remorse, and rather go for the smooth leather with gold panels:

    I went with the croc-embossed ones first because I thought it was easier to match with my outfits (casual with denim) and no color clashing. However, the gold is pretty neat. What are your thoughts?

    Anyone know where to find white/gum GATs in a reasonable price? I've given up trying to get them on sale in my size. I measure a 9.5US brannock so I guess I need a 42?

    I'm not a huge fan of either (prefer sl/01 toebox to the sl/10s) but if you like the jordan 1 look that they're modeled after I'd go for the gold panels for the color separation. Croc is rarely done well without looking tacky on sneakers imo and the ones you have up there look incongruently chunky with the large square embossing despite the otherwise slim silhouette



    You'd need at least a 42.5 if not a 43

    Awesome, 43 seems a little easier to find. Anyone have experience with Oki-Ni and duties? Looking to ship to Canada and wondering if they mark down

    They don't mark down. Have you checked Farfetch? They always have GATS, perhaps you may have slept on them though

    Farfetch has them but they're $100 more than oki ni but duties are included. Oki ni is closer to TBS pricing but I could get screwed on duties.

    Like those except the toe box now raised which kills it.
