I have yet to go through any margiela/lanvin/ysl/ect. Isn't the point of having designer sneakers being able to rotate them frequently enough that they all look new years later?!?

There's a decent community of sneaker heads that try to keep their shoes as pristine as possible, for me I just let normal day to day take a toll on them, particularly my GATS which I think look much better beat up then straight out of the box.

yo do you hike in em or someshit lol

I do wear my GATS quite a bit more often than my other sneakers because they're easy to slip on/off. I'd say 2/3rds of my rotation is in some pair of GATS. I also live in NY so end up walking a lot.

I feel as if my SL/10s look better used than new.

Does anyone have a suggested insert for CP's that are too big? I'm always getting heel slip when I walk :(

any other small footers get self-conscious over how small their shoes look on them (especially boots)?

i'm a tts us 8, but in shoes i'm like 5'10, so i sometimes think about how weird it must look
I don't think that's so bad.

I'm 5'8 with US 10 (actually more like 9.5, with EEE feet) so I have to wear size 10 shoes, which are still too narrow but also too long for me. I feel like a clown sometimes, but you have to remember that you will always pay more attention to yourself than others will, so relax, no one even cares.

Just curious would Bally sneakers be considered "baller" on this site?

I don't think they stand out that much but there's nothing really wrong with them. Most of their designs kind of reminds me of a stripped down Gucci sneakers with a different color scheme because of the ribbon on the side.

Guys I am debating between three pairs of black sneakers for my rotation:
Saint Laurent Black SL/01 Lows
Maison Margiela Black suede GATS
or Acne Studios black Triple Lo Velcros.
Any recommendations? and no i cant buy all three.

GATs, but maybe the SLPs if you're after something sleeker/less fun
